It’s once again time for another Super Robot Wars  game to be released, which is a very happy time in the God Len household (parents basement.) Right off the bat, this one is going to be the black sheep of the family. First of all this is the first SRW game for the Wii, and like the SRW game for the Gamecube, be 3D animated instead of the usual sprite animation.

What really makes this game stand apart from all the others are the series that are appearing in this game. This game features an all super robot cast, with no real robots present. Meaning there are no Gundams other than G Gundam. The series within this game are almost entirely from the late 80’s and 90’s, with a total of four anime from the “Eldran series”, which is similar to the “Brave” series of anime. This was totally unexpected, but being a super robot guy that I am, I have no problem with it.

So I wonder if it being on the Wii has anything to do with it being all super robots. Does that mean there is going to be some kind of motion control aspect to it all? Well, why I fantasize, take a look at the entire series list below.

Series list:

Mazinger Z
Great Mazinger
Jushin Liger
Shin (New) Getter Robo
NG Knight Lamune & 40
Galaxy Cyclone Braiger
Absolutely Invincible Raijin-Oh
Genki Bakuhatsu Ganbaruger
Hot-Blooded Strongest Go-Saurer
Kanzen Shouri Daiteioh
Iron Leaguer
Mobile Fighter G Gundam
Lord of Lords Ryu Knight

Unrelated but awesome EPIC video to put you in the mood.

In before where is Gurren Lagann?

You mispelled Lagann, and "going" (second sentence).

Super Robot gets boring without any Real Robot themes to give it contrast...

I love super robots, but this is a bit to old-school for me to be honest, as I haven't seen most of these series yet and even when going with Super Robots only, there are some good new shows that could be in there, like Godannar, Kotetsushin Jeeg and Gravion. Its great to see New Getter Robot in there though, that was one hotblooded show. Graphics looks neat also, so its not all bad. And I always have Super Robot Gakuen to look forward to.

This sounds good but I am still waiting for the volleyball version to come out on the Wii.
