    Glad Buddy Complex finally got in. 00 and Destiny are finally gone for a game, which is refreshing. I knew G-reco was getting in eventually.

    Wataru is surprising but not too unexpected. Nadia as the battleship series is surprising though. All in all, a very different cast list.

    X is the BX of the Console games, I think. Just enough changed to keep things fresh, and some new stuff.

  • Godmars

    Still, and will likely never, see a big budget strategy mech game that’s “serious” rather than fan service.

    Still this is good news.

  • Some furf

    Reconguista is in, AGE is a no-show. This amuses me greatly.

    After War Gundam X missing from Super Robot Wars X, on the other hand, that is disappointing. Although, it’s probably supposed to be pronounced Cross and they at least included Crossbone.

    There was the Front Mission series.

  • alterku

    Oh man, I haven’t even started my copy of V. I’ll end up buying this one too if it gets a physical English release for Vita.

  • porkbun

    No Macross? Well we could be getting this one in the West guys!

  • MasonF2

    Is this the first game with no Getter Robo whatsoever?

  • David Curry

    And whatever that FM spinoff with the Metal Gear artist turns out to be

  • Godmars

    With 90’s anime mech combat?

    I want it all!

  • Dawn Blast

    Aw…No Exkaiser or Dagarn.

  • Dawn Blast

    Nevermind, it has Cybuster. SOLD

  • True Goddess Reincarnation

    > Cross Ange: Rondo of Angels and Dragons

    Hahahahaha oh wow

  • Grzegorz Kucharski

    No, it happened before. SRW J or SRW L for example.

  • Happening alongside Dunbine and Buddy Complex, it is sure to be the most gigantic clusterfuck imaginable. IT WILL BE GLORIOUS

  • It is rare for every Series appearing in a game to be announced all at once. There are probably 2 or 3 more series that will be announced later. Hopefully they add Gallient, it’d be a huge mistake not to considering the Isekai route they are taking this time.

    Shit, I was hoping for a new OG with Banpreios. Ah well, let’s look at the roster and hope it’s not as bad as Z3.

  • UnpluggedBeta

    I would recommend Front Mission 3 and Front Mission 5 to you ser.
