Namco Bandai is working on a new Super Robot Wars game, titled 3rd Super Robot Wars Z, and it’s in development for Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita.
The game is scheduled for release on April 10th in Japan, and it has 32 mecha franchises that are contributing to this cross-over. The game will have the cross-save feature between Playstation 3 and Vita, and it will be made up of two parts, making it the last game in the Z series.
The Playstation 3 version costs 8,070 yen, and the Vita version costs 7,121 yen. The first=run copies of the game come with a free high-definition remake of the first generation Super Robot Wars. This HD remake will naturally get its own release on April 24th, which will cost 1,204 yen.
