Participating Characters and Mecha

  • Granteed – Touya Shiun is playable. Katia Grignard and Melua Melna Meia are support. Touya is the protagonist of the game. He throws himself into an encounter with Granteed, and Katia and Melua are two girls who appear riding Granteed.
  • Soul Saber FF – A prototype developed for mass production by Mogami Heavy Industries.
  • Akimi Akatsuki – The son of the president of Mogami Heavy Industries. He goes to the same high school as Touya.
  • Soul Saber GG – A prototype developed for mass production by Mogami Heavy Industries.
  • Akemi Akatsuki – Akimi’s twin sister. She often has to hold down her brother, who easily rushes into things.
  • Exploration Vine Boxer Type R
  • Exploration Vine Boxer Type L
  • G Compatible Kaiser

At the start of the game, you can select “Beginner Mode.” This lets inexperienced players play the game without worry, with more funds and upgrade parts to obtain.

Producer Interview

  • This is the first title as part of the Super Robot Wars 25th anniversary. There are other projects underway other than this game.
  • Super Robot Wars J protagonist Calvina Coulange will also appear as an ally unit.
  • Granteed’s setup will change in a big way, and he’ll be Touya’s personal mech.
  • The protagonists of Super Robot Wars GC were set up as twins. The Real Robot that wasn’t Soul Saber (maybe Soul Gunner?) won’t appear in this game.
  • Immediately after the game starts, it branches into two paths, one with Touya and another with Calvina. The Touya route is easier to play for new players.
  • The branch has no connection to the SR point.
  • Thanks to the hard work of the development staff, the special moves of the new mecha are a spectacular sight to see.
  • Development is 70 percent complete.

Thanks, Hachika Kikou.
