Movie Optimus Wages Super Robot War in Famitsu Wishlist

Super-Robot-War-Optimus-Prime
According to a scan from Japanese magazine Famitsu, Optimus Prime from the Transformers Movies appears in a list of characters for the Super Robot Wars video game series! Unfortunately it is something of a joke article, listing characters that will almost certainly never show up in Super Robot Wars, with Zyuranger (original Power Rangers) Dagwon, and Tetsujin 28 (Gigantor) also shown.

So close, yet so far! Maybe one day we'll see Transformers in a Super Robot Wars game. Until then we've always got Dreammix TV World Fighters...

Cool, it won't just feature prime, it'll feature just about every bot and character from the movie going by how these games normally work.
Overhaulimus
Oh cool.
Tekkaman Blade
Which system? I've been begging for this for years, maybe in future SRW's we can get older series characters.

SRW games are usually strategy RPGs. Move units around on a grid-based map, flank enemies, and then do battle, turn-based style.
Eric
Optimus Prime...and the Megazord...two of my childhood icons...together in one game!?

I just creamed myself...
Brave Magnus
REally?!?! Movie Prime and the original Megazord?!?! COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!! This sure makes my day! Thanks for the news!
cheetorBWORG
WHAT SYSTEM!!!!?!?!

Please?
Secretcode
No system was listed. Sorry.
SPLIT LIP
Man, the Megazord should fight Prime. I know it'd be kinda one-sided given their size, but they look like little chibi guys so that shouldn't matter.

Nonono, they should team up against MechaGodzilla. He's a super robot technically.
theestampede
doubt this will come to america, but I wish it would get imported. I would love to play it
exomega255
HOLY CRAP! ITS GRANZORT!?!?!?! finally making it to SRW. And what's this?! other Brave series!? Fire Dagwon? this is Win.
QuantumShock
Is that a mecha from Lost Planet 2 on Original Megazord's top right ?
Chevluh
Uh, WARNING, there's a trick to that.

It's apparently a joke article about series that'll almost certainly never appear in SRW, as far as I understand. That's why there's no system listed and the robots are all from series that have never been in SRW.

Looking at the 4chan thread on this some are questioning if this is legit. For one thing would Takara let Transformers be used by Banpresto which is owned by Namco Bandai Holdings Inc. ?

Toei owns Zyuranger. As for Dai Guard from what I've heard its creator doesn't want it in SRW.

Though there is some precedent with Hero Senki. But Banpresto wasn't owned by Bandai back then.

Zoids, owned by TakaraTomy, was in one of the recent DS games. So yes, they would.
Roanstalker
It seems this is fake. Its too much of a fan list to be real right?
Secretcode
Weirder things have happened in regards to games and such in Japan. Remember this?
cheetorBWORG
... This was already front paged... o_o

Shin, if you're reading this, I think you should change that story quickly...!
Secretcode
Also, 4chan is not exactly a reliable source on whether something is fake. Remember that "Generations Thundercracker" that was posted yesterday?

This is a Famitsu joke article on those that won't ever be shown in SRW.

Actually even 4chan is tired of that fake rumor getting spammed by now.

Weird, since GGG has been in a couple now.
TheInformation
Also, 4chan usually gets the links and the news from someplace else, so it's not like they're entirely to blame. For the most part, I've seen more true rumors and pictures in my time on the civilized portions of 4chan (aka, NOT /b/) than fake ones.

And I thought we had a chance. Curse you!

But GGG is like THE Brave series. Everything else almost never gets mentioned .
RedWolf
To clarify this is a Famitsu wish list. Hence why it is a joke article.

I am agreeing with Roan here. I prefer much of the older series. Goldion Hammer is nice and all, but I want to see other bots get climbed to fame.
Sol Fury
At least for Brave we've got the SRW styled Brave Saga games. Though the last one of those skipped over half the shows and included Raijin-oh, not that I'm complaining.

And don't write Brave off, Tomy's Eldoran series including Daitei-oh all popped up in the Wii SRW Neo.

Still, a pity that TF isn't in a Super Robot Wars title. Guess I'll just have to learn a bit more programming and make my own

lol finally we will know who would win the Megazord or Prime

Or not since its a joke, and secondly, heroes in SRW dont usually fight eachother.

The problem with the Nintendo console based SRW (Wii, N64, etc) is that its 3D instead of just 2D animation (which looks a heck lot more dynamic and retro) =/

It'd be a huge licensing issue to ever put any TF's on there, I think.
Paxtin
Too bad, it would have been funny to see a chibi Optimus rip the face off of some mechs as his special finishing move.
ZeroEdge
If this cast were to ever be made into a REAL Super Robot Wars...it would be a very, VERY interesting game...

Did the original Megazord ever get hijacked"

The heroes sure did fight each other in SRW Z though.

Honestly though Movieverse wouldn't have been my first choice for Transformers in SRW.

If Transformers ever did get thrown into an SRW, then G1 would have the most likely probability of being picked..or even one of the Japanese series.

Or Animated. That'd be amusing.
Tekmen
It is FAKE.

It was photoshop by a SRW fan, and he posted on a fan site yesterday.
Then later, people post it on 2ch.

So please remove this from the frontpage.
Chevluh
If it's a fake, it's an excellent one and deserves the exposure.

The killer detail: It's not Zyuranger, it's actually bona fide Power Rangers! Here are clearer pictures:
Roanstalker
Those Power Ranger screens . Awesome work.
S250
this is more like a hoax
David Hingtgen
Am I the only one who recognized the knight from White Knight Chronicles?
Sprocket
Hah, those Power Ranger screens. Complete with Brad Kidd and IGN reaction guy. Awesome work, Famitsu.

As for GaoGaiGar, for some reason, Sunrise has a lot more control over that franchise: it's how we got GaoGaiGar Final and GaoGaiGar in Super Robot Wars. Hell, he's even IN a Sunrise cross-over game for the Dreamcast. GGG is as much Sunrise's as it is Takara's. Why, I don't know.
DrillBIT
I really don't think it is Famitsu at all.
It lacks the proper symbol for featuring games series that have receive Gold and Platinum awards.

And Famitsu never do wish list this way. Wish list goes to the monochrome pages locate between page 180 to 200. The list will always be text base to prevent copyright troubles.
I know everybody kind of excited but it is best to pull the news or at least take the word "Famitsu" off the front page. Those guys at Enterbrain really good at taking legal actions against crimes of counterfeiting of documents using their product brands.
guard convoy
why movie prime? should of had g1 convoy, but eh, i'll take it

star saber needs put in these games though, badly!
Gaokaiser
This is completely fan-made fake.

Some people are pointing out that TRUTH, but many guys don't understand...

Truth needs to be substantiated. Just saying it's fake won't cut it.
