Sounds exciting but it's only in Japanese, isn't it?
Actually, no! This will be the first licensed SRW with an official English release. the Asia version of the game will have English text for people interested in playing the game! The quality of the translation probably isn't going to be the best but you will be able to play and enjoy the game even without knowing Japanese. Check out the Stage 1 video in the media section for what the English version of the game is like!
A lot of mecha games are getting English releases now too. Check out these recent titles if you're interested:
Gundam Breaker 3
Super Robot Wars OG Moon Dwellers
SD Gundam G Generation Genesis
There's a music edit mode!
You can insert your favorite tracks to play in the game. So if you prefer the vocal versions of the famous tracks and didn't buy the Premium Song edition from Japan, you can use your own!
Featured Series - I collapsed them into one umbrella but a lot of subseries are here like for Crossbone, etc
