Super Robot Wars T getting update on June 25th, paid DLC coming June 27th, 2019

A serious challenge

Super Robot Wars T is getting some paid DLC on June 27th, 2019. This 'Expansion Pack' DLC will give players a new scenario to check out, which proves to be a pretty beefy experience. There will also be some new characters and mechs included in the paid DLC options as well. From what we hear, this new scenario is meant to really challenge players who have mastered the game up to this point.

In preparation for this paid DLC, Super Robot Wars T will be updated to Version 1.04 on June 25th, 2019.

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.
