    Jesus Christ!

    I hope to god they decide to make an Original Generation game for it, so there at least would be a tiny chance of us getting it. :cry 

    FYI: Go Lion has never been in a SRW game before, so that's a pretty big deal.

    It's amazing how much can still be done with 2D sprites. Very impressive. Looking forward to seeing how GoLion turns out. I wonder how much (if any) of his inclusion has to do with the revival of Voltron in the U.S.

    It's very awesome. This game's graphics quality seems to be between the PS and PS2 games.

    If you want to really be blown away, check these out! Pretty much all of them are videos of all the attacks for each character in SRW Alpha 3 for the PS2. Genesic Gaogaigar in particular has one of the most insane attacks you will ever see. "GOLDEON CRUSHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"

    Go Lion! Gaogaigar! Gundam Seed Astray! Tekkaman Blade!

    With a lineup like that, that'll be an awesome game. Mazinkaiser and Shin Getter Robo are just the icing on the cake. Too bad it'll never see the light of day in English.

    As awesome as the Super Robot Taisen series is, I really wish there was a line of action games for super robots like Another Century's Episode is for "real" mecha shows. There was Super Robot Spirits long ago on the N64, but I want something newer, better, and BIGGER.

    I have no idea what's going on in that clip. The layout and control scheme looks awesome, but WTF is the actual gameplay like? It looks like all cutscenes.

    The game is all cutscenes?

    It's a tactical type game, it's all the attacks that make cool cutscenes.

    It's a turn-based strategy RPG (like FF Tactics). All attacks are represented by animated cutscenes, which has become one of the game's selling points.

    You're telling me! The SRW games have to have the single most impressive 2d graphics I've ever seen. I never get tired of watching all the attack animations. SHIN! SHINE! SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARKU!

    I'm guessing the reason this won't come to the US is the same reason the JUMP Allstars fighting game didn't come here? Which reminds me, I need to get that Jump game one day.

    Yeah, pretty much. The licensing would cost a fortune, and not be worth the hassle. That's why I hope they decide to make an OG game for it. That way there's a chance we could get it.

    And if you think it's impressive in the cutscene, you should see the original from the OAV series. :D 

    Is there a list of all the characters for the new one yet? I keep waiting to see what happens if any of the Diebuster mecha show up, especially the Diebuster itself.
