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:

Ahoy, Me Hearties! Let’s talk about fan translations

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.)

Super Robot Wars V: haven’t seen some of these guys in a while

Up until today, about the only things known about Super Robot Wars V were that it has a pretty good series list including the debut of Yamato, and that it would be the first licensed SRW game ever available in English.  Which was enough to get my attention, but with this new video it’s looking more certain that this will be a really interesting one.

Well, THERE’S an unexpected crossover

Super Robot Wars XΩ continues to use its less structured format as a way to include pretty much anything it wants to. Idolm@ster Xenoglossia was a little surprising, and Crayon Shin-chan was something nobody could possibly have predicted (and probably never asked for), but this new one breaks down another boundary.

For the first time, a live action work is included in a SRW game. And it’s not any of the ones you probably just thought of. It’s not G-Savior either, the obscure live-action Gundam movie that some people think they’ve avoided solely because they didn’t want to open the door to live action.

But, well…

The King of the Monsters himself, fighting alongside the King of Braves and the King of Hearts.  And yes, Shinji is in some kind of Godzilla-Eva hybrid.

The Mazinger Z villains really hate the fact that Hideaki Anno is directing Godzilla: Resurgence right now…

MechaGodzilla is there too, so I guess you can’t say it doesn’t have mecha. (Also, Jet Alone from Neon Genesis Evangelion was based on Jet Jaguar.)
