News: Super Robot Wars Z 2 Saisei-hen Announced

As expected, we now have the second part to the awesome Super Robot Wars Z 2. Titled Saisai-hen, it will continue the narratives of the multitude of mecha series featured in the first game (which we utterly adored). However, there is one new addition to the roster that has caught our eye, specifically that of Taiyo no Shisha Tetsujin 28-go from 1980 (pictured above). It’s an interesting choice and one we wholeheartedly approve of. Though to be fair, we’re more excited to play with the ATM-09-DD Burglary Dog from Shining Heresy, as many of the series involved will receive the latter part of their mechanical menu in the game. In terms of the game’s release, it’s still on the PSP and will be out on 5th April for the pretty steep price of 7,330 yen. For those that pre-order the game, they’ll also receive a lovely digest book for their trouble. In addition, your save data from Hakai-hen will net you more cash and other bonuses in Saisei-hen. Depending on your clear count of the first game, those bonuses will change too apparently. Considering that Banpresto are still pushing the whole 20th Anniversary of SRW (despite the fact that it was actually last year), expect big things for this release. For us though, April can’t come soon enough.

    I don’t think Shining Heresy is featured in this game.
    The series roster listed Votoms, Pailsen Files and Roots of Ambition.
    I was surprised that Big Battle wasn’t listed, considering we’re going to get the end of the Votoms TV series in this game.

      Well, I’d heard that the game would go all the way up to Phantom Arc in terms of the chronology (though this was mentioned on 2ch admittedly).

    So, Tetsujin 28′s 80′s sequel is the only completely new series to join in part two (the rest are continuations and OVAs, and the return of Macross 7)

    I believe it also states that the Frontier movie and Char’s Counterattack are only contributing units again, and apparently, the Japanese PSN will have the game for download for standard retail price. Very interesting.

      Yeah, the only completely new show is 28, but there will still be loads of new units and attacks that were purposefully not used in Part 1 like the Sazabi, Shin Mazinger’s big bang punch (whatever its called) and a ton of other things. I’m really excited to have Macross 7 back.

      The inclusion of this version of Tetsujin 28 is odd. Is it just because they needed more Choukogin/Poppy stuff? There are three eras of 28 and this was the least popular, I think.

    I knew it wouldn’t be much longer until this got announced. Awesome news.

    now here is a series in desperate need of modernization. I love SRT but the formula is getting damn stale. NEO played with some interesting ideas that could use developing. We need more stuff like that.

    FINALLY! I’m so excited for this.
