This is how I imagine it is at the Banpresto conference table: “2nd Super Robot Wars Original Generation? That was like a week ago. It’s old news. It’s time for the next one.” And it is time for Super Robot Wars UX on 3DS.
It may not seem like a whole lot after the incredible animations we got from OG 2, but I like a few of the faces we’re seeing. I only can’t identify the second one and ninth. The lion face on number two makes me want to say Voltron/Go Lion, but I’m not sure. The rest of the video goes as follow:
- Aura Battler Dunbine
- Gundam SEED Destiny
- Macross Frontier
- Linebarrels of Iron
- Dancouga Nova
- Fafner in the Azure
- Superior Defender Gundam Force
- Mazinkaiser SKL
- Gundam 00: Awakening of the Trailblazer
The cast looks all right. I was one of the few people that was ok with Mazinkaiser SKL, so seeing it in Super Robot Wars is ok by me. Linebarrels of Iron started off ok, but it got really garbage as it went on. Hopefully, they’ll mute that and just let it have lasers and stuff. Oh, and if you visited it and read it, yes Demonbane was an eroge at one point. I really hope that doesn’t make it in considering the buxomness SRW sometimes dips into.
But the big weird one is Vocaloid. I’ve made jokes about not knowing what Vocaloid is, but this time I really mean it. Does Vocaloid have robots? It’s a voice synthesizer, right? Why, what? I’m legitimately lost on this one. I was once told that because Vocaloid doesn’t really have a story being a tool and not a story, everything is canon even the stuff that contradicts the other stuff. I guess someone was playing with it at Banpresto one day and they just went, “You know what? Super Robot. What the hell?” I guess it’s going to kick ass with the power of song. Maybe that’s why it’s Macross Frontier and not Macross 7 Dynamite.
