Super Robot Wars is a tactical role-playing game franchise by Banpresto. It is best known as a massive crossover between multiple popular media from the mecha genre including anime, manga, and video games. However because of the licensing rights, only the OG games featuring original content have been released overseas. Regular series featured in Super Robot Wars include Mobile Suit Gundam, Mazinger, and Getter Robo.

Gameplay Edit

All games follow a basic structure with character introductions and dialog between playable characters before going into battle. A scenario must be completed through objectives, each different from the rest. Like most tactical role-playing games, players take turns to command their units. With a scenario completed more dialog can be shared between players in an intermission where upgrades, attachments, or maintenance can be performed on units.

Story Modes are at first played by an original character who is connected to the overarching storyline which ties the events of the different series to the game. Some stories can also be changed from their scenarios including characters from completely different series interacting with each other, often after completing the original objective. Players can even prevent the death of characters in their scenarios including Musashi's infamous sacrifice.

The mecha units in the games are usually differentiated by the Real or Super categories. Super Robots often serve as tanks due their high amount of hit points, armor, and firepower with inefficient use allowing them to block some attacks with ease. Real Robots often possess higher mobility but lower armor and hit points akin to sweepers (or snipers) and are able to evade more easily. Some units can also be customized to feature unique abilities including the Getter Robo.

Players also gain experience by defeating opponents, money and optional parts can also be earned if the opponent is destroyed. Areas can affect gameplay such as Gundam excelling in space environments, while some machines are limited by factors like water.

Getter Robo Edit

Getter Robo is a semi-regular series in Super Robot Wars, featured in nearly every game. It is also the first animated media appearance of the Shin Getter Robo following its appearance in the Getter Robo Go manga. This influenced later animated appearances including Getter Robo Armageddon and Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo. The most common scenario used in the games had come from Getter Robo Armageddon.
