Suit up

Super Robot Wars is a massive series in its native Japan and brings together many classic Mecha series into one convenient package.

The latest entry in this long-running franchise has just been revealed by Famitsu, and goes by the title Super Robot Wars BX. It launches in Japan on August 20th for 6,640 yen.

According to the report, the developers have used the experienced gained from Super Robot Wars UX - the previous 3DS title - to make this a more compelling offering. Combat will be improved, as will the partner battle system. Full voice-overs will also make the cut this time around.

If you're interested in the various Mecha series which will be represented in this latest game, feast your eyes on the list below:


  • Panzer World Galient
  • SD Gundam Gaiden
  • Mobile Suit Gundam AGE
  • Giant Gorg
  • Macross 30: Voices across the Galaxy

A Western release is highly unlikely, meaning this is only going to appeal to importers. Will you be taking the plunge this August? Let us know by posting a comment.
