Getter Robo Daikessen ! (ゲッターロボ大決戦! Getta Robo Daikessen !) is a simulation RPG video game developed by TechnoSoft and published by Bandai Visual for the PlayStation, it was released in September 9, 1999. It borrows robots and characters from various media including the manga and anime of Getter Robo, G, and Go as well as Getter Robo Armageddon and original content not featured in other media. The title of the game can have 2 translations "Getter Robo The Great Battle!" or "Getter Robo The Big Battle!".
The player controls an male/female avatar as a trainee pilot for the Saotome Institute. While the player is initially unable to board a Getter Robo; by going through training simulations the player can obtain a pass to pilot any robot of their choosing. The combat is shown in polygonal 3DCG giving the robots a rather prismatic appearance while the characters are shown in standard 2D still art definition. The game also uses elements from Getter Robo Armageddon, including the cockpit area from the anime where the player docks.
As the player advances through the combat, he/she can strengthen as well as add weapons to the robots he/she pilots. Similar to Super Robot Wars, players can also use passive abilities such as not being affected by terrain, reconnaissance, and repairs. The mecha use a point system based on Hit Points (HP) and Getter Energy (GE); while GE is used similar to the other energy point systems in RPG games, they can be recovered every turn by a set number. Some machines such as Lady Command possess repair features. Combat is similar to other Super Robot games but has the additional "Avoid" option to deflect and evade damage.
