Yeaaa… I’m a bit very late to find out about this (just yesterday) and I’m sure everyone else already knows but I still wanna talk about it ^^. So this is the newest SRW and it is for the Wii time. Despite the name “NEO”, this SRW contains quite a lot of old school stuff I see xD. There are two big shockers to me here: The roster and 3D graphics.
From that video, the ONLY series I know is New Getter Robo. The rest I’ve never seen or heard of in my life o_o. I still have fond memories of Braiger and G Gundam though. It seems that with each new SRW, Banpresto is bringing in more obscure (to me) mecha series. That’s a great thing as one get more exposure to more mechas… but at the same time, I feel just that more alienated ^^;. I play SRW to relive those awesome anime moments and laugh like a maniac as I control my favorite mecha to go on an onslaught on hapless grunts. The one SRW where I was well-versed with most of the roster was SRW@3 (or the whole alpha series actually). Now the 3D… woah, why is it 3D?! The graphics look great and all but… some things MUST stay 2D. I supposed if it needs to make use of the wiimote, then this is the way to go. I just hope it is not a permanent change because there is a special charm about seeing attacks being replicated just like its anime counterpart. Even though I have a wii, I have no intention of getting this game because there’s just too many series that I can’t relate to here x_x
Any SRW players here? What are your thoughts? Oh, and last question… how is “Super Robot Wars” read? Is it “SUPER ROBOT- Wars” as in “Wars of Super Robots”? or “SUPER- Robot Wars” as in a super war of robots? xD
