Needless to say, it's a fairly large roster with a grand total of 23 works participating. Of the returning series, a large number of them are returning from the Z3 games and V, such as Gurren Lagann, almost every Gundam series besides F91 and Beltorchika's Children, and Cross Ange. They appear to be using a mix of new and old assets however, so the reusage isn't too bad.

Those that purchase early-run copies of the game in Japan will receive additional bonuses.


Special Chapter 0 Scenario: “Journey of the Vow”
Present Scenario: “Special Starter Pack”
Super Robot Wars X “Original Theme”
Cybuster and Masaki available from the beginning of the game


For those wondering, Cybuster and Masaki are an original mecha and character respectively, that debuted in Super Robot Taisen 2 way back on the Famicom. You may recognize it from the two Original Generation games that Atlus localized on the Game Boy Advance. Much like Huckebein and Grungust in V, you will still have access to Cybuster without the bonus, just at a later stage in the game with minimal to no impact on the plot.

Finally, Japan will be getting a "Premium Anime Song & Sound Edition" which will include 35 additional songs. Now the following are not remixes or covers, they are the original deal.

Don't feel too left out about it, as if X is anything like previous games, you can connect a USB device and use custom BGM.

Needless to say, I'm very excited for this entry. A lot of entries I liked in Z3 and V return, and the back-to-back reveals of the return of Hi-Nu Gundam and Mazinkaiser had me grinning like an idiot. Definitely up there for games I'm looking forward to in 2018, if not my most anticipated one now.

Well... from those GBA games, we aren't missing too much. It's chibi robot action with a bad storyline. I can do without it.

This series never makes it outside of Japan, right?

I just picked up SRW V!

The English translation actually seems okay.
