I, uh, may have preordered the Asian version of Super Robot Wars 30 too fast. Because for the first time ever, a non-OG SRW game is coming to North America. (And South America, except Venezuela. And Europe. And Australia.)
It’s Steam only outside of Asia, but still, a huge deal.
Before I say too much, I’ll let this speak for itself:
“Music from a licensed game”
How many licenses do you want?
Ever notice how long and often silly most light novel titles are? What if more anime/manga/etc had titles like that?
Announced on Japanese side Villagebooks is an unexpected but cool upcoming crossover.

The trailer for the next Super Robot Wars game is here. The next two, actually. Here’s Super Robot Wars T, for PS4 and Switch, which already has an English release for Southeast Asia confirmed like the last three:
Arr! Today be talk like a pirate day, so let’s talk about the fuzzy boundary between piracy, popularization, and preservation.
I’m all for creators being able to profit off their work, and not about to defend people who pirate content just to get out of paying retail price. And some media is a lot harder to justify pirating than others; I can’t think of an acceptable reason to pirate e-books, for example. (It’s also a bad idea because you’re more likely to get malware than the correct book.)
I’m not dead, but I would be if I wound up in a mecha setting and didn’t follow these rules.
1. Don’t mentor a younger pilot.
2. If you must break rule one, don’t be cooler than your protege.
3. Don’t fight anything powered by a black hole.
The next Super Robot Wars game has been announced, and this time there’s an English trailer from the start.
