    Put your god damn heads inside the tanks and close the hatch. I don’t care how anime you girls are, that is live artillery being fired at you that you do not want blowing up in your face.

    don’t worry, they are lined with carbon so they are totally safe

  • Audie Bakerson

    Why does LWA game get PC release but not this?


    Time to grab some ammo racks and attack from the rear!

  • Hiecchi

    Great but i want still a official english release in the West…..

  • sanic

    Sweet I was hoping for this.

    Did you watch the show

  • RichardGristle
  • Touma

    yeah.. if it’s anything like the release of the last Super Robot Taisen I’ll pass thanks (or rather, I’ll just get the Japanese version)

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Is it that hard to say “English Asian release”?

    Little Witch Academia

  • Mr_SP

    What are you talking about? Moon Dwellers was pretty bleh. Readable… but Engrish.

    The LAST Super Robot Wars, however, SRW V, was effectively perfect English.

  • Touma

    Yeah, I was thinking about Moon Dwellers, I forgot SRW V also got and English release but you’re right that was a decent release, still, I don’t thrust Bandai Namco when it comes to Asian releases in english.

  • Ging3rpowd3r

    My flame for shenshadou has been re-ignited!

  • Mr_SP

    They’ve been a bit rough and hit-and-miss, but it sorta seems like their standards have improved.

    Sword Art Online and Moon Dwellers were not good, G Gen Genesis had a fair number of errors. SRW V and Extreme Vs Force was good.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Oh, then it’s likely because of how much more popular Little Witch Academia is with it having its anime funded and put up by Netflix.

  • Leandro Teixeira

    I can imagine the JP online on this game being like something out of a real war with everybody following orders and executing shit with perfection, I heard the military otaku in japan don’t fuck around when it comes to games

  • Zack Attack

    Shut up


    Just remember “Trails Of Cold Steel for Pc” Faggot .

  • sleepysloth13

    So does that mean its not coming to the us at all?

  • DeeeFoo

    After watching the anime, I’m starting to think that the ammunition that they’re using isn’t live artillery at all. I mean, none of the characters ever get seriously injured, even when you’ve got tanks blowing up and being flipped upside down.

  • DeeeFoo

    I’m pretty sure the English used in Asia isn’t too different from the English used elsewhere.

  • DeeeFoo

    Not necessarily. They probably want to wait and see how it does in sales before committing to localization.

  • sleepysloth13

    I really hope if thats the case it, that it does well. I mean i hope it does well in general but ya know

    Who’s to say it won’t?
