Super Robot Wars is a simulation RPG with various robots crossing-over from different works to fight against common enemies. More than 90 titles have been released to date, and 2016 was the 25th anniversary. In the upcoming Super Robot Wars T, the game system and graphics have been improved. First-timers to the Super Robot Wars series will also enjoy the novel world view and standalone story.

Heavy metal

Super Robot Wars T saw a very solid debut in Japan for its first day on the market. It looks like all the marketing efforts have paid off, including print ads like these. I'm guessing the game did well in Southeast Asia as well, considering how many people were eager to import that version due to its English support!

Super Robot Wars T Anime Sound Premium Edition download codes do not work with Southeast Asian copies

Ya heard?

This one isn't really a surprise, but it's worth pointing out. The Super Robot Wars T Anime Sound Premium Edition is only available in Japan, and it includes some download codes for music. Those codes will only work with the Japanese version of the game, meaning they do nothing in Super Robot Wars T copies sold in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. There's simply no way to access that Sound Premium Edition content in any other region at this time.

Super Robot Wars T's English localization team revealed

A quality localization to be sure

Back in the day, a number of Super Robot Wars games were localized by Atlus USA. That's when Atlus felt like going through the insane hassle of getting approval for all the content included in those games. Nowadays we don't see Atlus involved with the franchise anymore, and there aren't any official stateside releases. That said, the games still get English translations. Super Robot Wars T's Asian release included an English localization, but who on earth tackled it?

Turns out some of the team from Super Robot Wars X's localization have returned to handle T. Christina Rose and Jason Moses returned to handle English work once again, and they were joined by newcomer @gtcaphi. Those who were worried the English localization might not be up to snuff can now rest easy knowing a pair of veterans and a new team member have done a bang-up job.

Bandai Namco to rectify Super Robot Wars T Day-1 DLC troubles for those who purchase the Southeast Asian copy

Mission success!

Things were touch-and-go with this discussion over the last few days, but we're very happy to give you a final update on the matter.

Those living in Southeast Asia will not get the Day-1 download code for Super Robot Wars T

Super Disappointment

The news for Super Robot Wars T's Day-1 download code in Southeast Asia just keeps getting worse. Bandai Namco has officially confirmed that the code is not going to release in the region, meaning as of right now, there's no way to get that Day-1 content. Bandai Namco says that they are not distributing the code/content because there is “no official Nintendo eShop” in the region. This reason doesn't make much sense, as other companies have found/implemented workarounds for this situation.
