Hello all,
I'm a fan of super robot wars/taisen series. It's a strategy game and the series is famous and popular among gamers in Japan mainly because it's where all popular classic robots fight together to defeat Aliens, Evil entities and characters. I was introduced to the series by my cousin when I had SNES. I remembered playing the 3rd and 4th series. I didn't know how to play properly back then and I don't speak or read Japanese. If you know this series, you'll probably know that the 3rd super robot wars was one of the hardest to beat in the series. I got stuck and defeated by the enemies. Anyway, fast forward into the future, the series has grown and changed dramatically. Starting from the quality of the sprites, pictures, animations, the arts, characters, etc. I learned to play properly by reading walkthrough. I do not follow the storyline at all. I just like playing the game and watching the fighting animation and listening to the battle theme and music.

Sadly, Namco Bandai will never bring the series to the west due to licensing nightmare. Fan translations exist for some of the games like Super robot wars 3, J and Alpha Gaiden. Due to the amount of texts in this game makes it very difficult for English fans translation groups to keep up their effort to finish the translation projects. I understand about that. But sometimes, I blame myself for unable to speak or read Chinese because Chinese fans translation exist for these games as well. I remember that someone was playing Super Robot Wars A for Gameboy Advance via emulator at uni in Chinese texts. That was awesome...I didn't know the guy though. hahaha. :) I'm sure some Chinese Fans translation groups still exist and they might still be working to translate one or two Super Robot Wars series.

The official release for the west were only the Original Generation series for Gameboy Advance by Atlus. That was it. Too bad indeed. The Original Generation series released on PS2 and PS3 are awesome. I haven't got a chance to play but I did watch some videos on Youtube. The animations are amazing. Please check those videos on Youtube if you are curious about them.

Original Generation 3 on PS3 (Recently Released):
















Do you all now see why we love Super Robot Wars series? Those HD screenshots and animations on PS3. Oh my god, I love them :-) This is why I'm trying to encourage people to love this series.

If you have time, please explore and play the games. I believe you can get the Original Generation series on Play-Asia. That is if they have them in stock. You can always go to Ebay and find a copy of the game too. Please support the developer by buying the game. And also, if you could like this facebook page: Operation HotBlood, that would be great. They are voicing their voice to convince game publishers to localize Super Robot Taisen Original Generations series (the PS2 and PS3 version) to the west. These guys are great. Please support them as well.

And lastly, Thank you for coming to the forum as well. Drop comments whenever you can about this game.

Kind regards,

Wpranata

If only it came out in the west... I would have played each one of them... sigh.. Gundam Wing is my favourite series... I always upgrade them first and use the gundams in that series to beat the game in the jap versions...

loves this series, was introduced to it by my cousin with the GBA advance OG versions, since then i have played endless frontier when it got localized, and have played alpha gaiden, and the Z series. I just got The PS2 OG's on a emulator currently working on that. Hoping that somebody eventually localizes the PS3 version

My favourite is Nu Gundam with Amuro Ray! Hehehe. I love the term 'newtype'. I can always rely on him to fight the boss in the game! :)
