The Scoop:  Yeesh, they just released SRW K and now they are on about a spinoff game?  I don’t know about this one, there’s literally no knew series, it’s just all of the units from the previous 3 handheld games (J, W and K) thrown into a story about a Super Robot pilot training school that uses simulations to train it’s cadets….possibly with sexy results.  Luckily if all goes as planned I won’t be having to pay to test it when it comes out.  Errrr…..yeah, that’s about all I’ve got.  Oh no wait there’s one more thing……..they bloody well put Prince of Darkness in there again but took Tekkaman Blade out.  Lame!  Yeah I know this is seemingly just a sprite rehash, but if I have to go through that awful storyline again I’m not sure I can play this game.  Then again Brain Powerd, SPT Layzner AND Shin Getter Robo: Armageddon are back in so it might even out a little.

Oh okay again there’s one more thing, it looks like the Wars Break system in SD Gundam G Generation Wars may have finally been revealed.  Bear with me as this is pure guess work:

Wars BreakWars Break 2

So here we’ve got Garod minding his own business while seemingly duking it out with the Frost Brothers when WARS BREAK!  Holy shit it’s Patrick………..whaaaaaaaa?

My guess is the whole Wars Break thing is like some crossover thing that happens where characters from another Gundam Universe somehow cross into the scenario.  Don’t ask me how that works or if it’s even actually the case, but it does seem like it would be an interesting way to liven things up.

Thanks again to SRW Hot News for the pics.

    What, the bad guys are just fucked with that SRW lineup. Character designs of the originals are rather familiar.

    But sheesh why’d they remove Blade. 😦

    WTF? Fumoffu? There was no mecha in that show. What are they using? The Fumo squad?

    FMP?! Fumoffu is an excuse to use the absurdly broken Bonta-kun suits. Really.

    @Schneider: I think it might be a dueling sort of game, possibly to be played over Wi-Fi. I guess we’ll see.

    @Sadakups & Myssa Rei: Either that or slaughter them with the God Gundam. Hehehe……

    Kidding aside though, that’s a LOT of series to squeeze into a portable-only game. Mmm… The Originals are terribly generic as well. Reminds me or Ren-ai game designs for some reason, even more than Judgement.

    @Myssa Rei: Moreso the girl. If the male guy were an eroge/Ren-Ai design he’d probably be older and less confidant looking.

  7. 7 Myssa Rei May 15, 2009 at 6:25 am

    The real problem with the Ren-ai designs though is the fact that, hmm, they’d look rather odd when placed side by side with the existing Original (Generation) cast. Judgement was already kind of an odd fit, nevermind the subsequent portable SRW casts (I loved the Hardygun family though, hahahaha).
