■ Introduction to Protagonist & Their Mech
The latest in the series, Super Robot Wars X features the same concept of uniting characters and mechs across different anime titles against a common enemy. This is a standalone story, so newcomers to the Super Robot Wars series can also enjoy this game!
Introducing the protagonists of Super Robot Wars X and their mechs! Players choose between the male protagonist (Iori) or female protagonist (Amari) at the start of the game.
Iori Iolite (voiced by Ryohei Arai)
The male protagonist is Iori Iolite, designed by Yun Kouga and voiced by Ryohei Arai. Iori hails from the Otherworld of Al-Warth, where he maintains law and order as part of the Keepers of Order. He is also known as the Sorceror of Iolite. Competitive and serious, he has a strong sense of justice. He has trained in Dogma (magic) since young. To discover the possibilities of his powers, he sets off on a journey in the Xelguard.
Amari Aquamarine (voiced by Satomi Sato)
The female protagonist is Amari Aquamarine, designed by Yun Kouga and voiced by Satomi Sato. Amari is a member of the Keepers of Order too. She is also known as the Sorceror of Aquamarine. Courteous and serious, she can also be somewhat timid. However, deep in her heart lies a resolve of steel. To discover the meaning of her existence, she sets off on a journey in the Xelguard.
Spero (voiced by Keiichi Noda)
Not forgetting Spero, designed by Kazue Nakajima and voiced by Keiichi Noda. Spero is an artificial lifeform created using Dogma and understands human speech. To widen its knowledge, it journeys with the protagonist. It co-pilots the Xelguard and provides support in battle.
Finally, there’s Xelguard, an Autowarlock developed by the Keepers of Order who maintain law and order in Al-Warth. With magic circles on its forearms, it is able to use Dogma (magic) swiftly. However, its magical power amplification is unstable, and its combat abilities are directly affected by the pilot’s condition and magical powers.
