Super Robot Wars V is now available for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan, as well as in Southeast Asia with English subtitles.
The latest title celebrating the Super Robot Wars series’ 25th anniversary, Super Robot Wars V is a simulation RPG that sees robots from a number of franchises cross the boundaries of their worlds and join forces to fight a common enemy. It tells an original story set in a new world.
Here are a few new details on launch day:
New System Feature: “Extra Action”
A new parameter called ExC (Extra Count) has been introduced. Accumulate ExC by fulfilling certain conditions such as attacking enemy units on the map, or leveling up a unit’s main pilot. Use accumulated ExC to activate a special “Extra Action” command, which allows a range of special moves such as “Boost Dash,” “Direct Attack,” and “Smash Hit.”
New System Feature: “Extra Order”
The battleship-specific “Extra Order” command uses ExC in exchange for granting special effects to surrounding allied units, such as “Emergency Recovery,” “Focus Up,” “ExC Up,” and “Recover Action.” Except for “Focus Up,” none of the commands can be used on the player’s own unit.
New Character: Nine
The addition of Nine introduces a new character whose existence is closely intertwined with the System 99 OS of the VangRay prototype anti-alien mobile weapon (the main character’s robot). Nine works alongside the game’s main characters Soji and Chitose.
