News: Super Robot Wars Z 3 Announced

First off, apologies for the lack of updates. We’ve finally moved into our new place in Tokyo and only gained net access yesterday. That aside, Bandai have announced what looks to be the final installment in the Super Robot Wars Z series of games. Released this April, the game will be available on both PS3 and Vita. The game is also using the new updated engine as seen in the last OG and Masou Kishin games. Considering that the last major console release in the “proper” series was back in 2008, this will mark the first and only installment on current gen hardware (XO doesn’t count as that was a port of GC anyway, plus it was in rather manky 3D). Thankfully, Bandai released a nice long promo (shown below) and whilst the line-up is rather decent, the lack of Eureka Seven and Final Dancouga is slightly saddening. There’s even a nice little video that chronicles the Z series of games too. The really lovely news though is that the original 1991 GameBoy game that started the whole Super Robot Wars phenomenon is getting an HD remake. For those that buy the new PS3 and Vita game at launch, they will receive a free download code for the remake. Alternatively, if you miss that then the remake will be released on April 24th via PSN for 1,204 yen. The remake, like the new game, will also be available on both PS3 and Vita.

The series list isn’t perfect, but its been a really really long time since we had one this good.

I’m super excited for this.

But…I used to own the original SRW and I think an “HD” remake would have to be, bare minimum, HUGELY re-worked. IIRC, there isn’t any story, the mechs don’t have pilots, and the “graphics” were about as exciting as those from a horse racing sim.

The cast list doesn’t look too promising for a penultimate series of SRW Z not too optimistic how the game will turn out considering Z2 is overhyped. But in the end i still hope that Z3 will conclude with a bang just like Alpha 3 did.

This is a pretty small cast list at the moment so I’d say its just an initial teaser. As we all know they love to reveal more series as further trailers come out – for example I doubt they’d leave out Final Dancouga after the last one.

What’s got me excited here is the Gunbuster announcement. I’ve missed it since Alpha 3 (if it’s been in another I may have missed that one). The reveal of FMP! interests me – although the animations for them didn’t look particularly great (Arbalest’s running anim was pretty rough looking compared to some of the other animations)

I have to say though this announcement made my Christmas when I saw it!
