various robots from famous old Anime shows, coming together to fight a common enemy in an alternate environment than the anime counterpart. Japanese fans love this type of game because they get to control their favorite robots and pilots and get to see their cool attacks again. The first few SRW games are for either Gameboy, Famicom or Super Famicom, and the last few are for either Playstation and Saturn.
The most popular SRW game probably is 4th Super Robot War, since it's the only SRW game that actually has an ending, well, it's actually a paragraph of what do the characters do after the war. The 4th Super Robot War was released for both Super Famicom and Playstation, with Playstation version is the first SRW game ever to have the original voice actors/actresses doing the character's voice and there is minor changes to the game also. This game, SRWF, is also based on 4SRW, except that there are new robots from different series and some robots are taken out, and the storyline is almost completely rewritten. This game has all the voice actors/actresses, like the Neo Super Robot Wars for Playstation, and the robots are still in Super Deformed, SD, or big-head-small-body form, unlike NSRW. It has a new feature that isn't found in other SRW games (except for Lord of the Elementals, a SRW side story based on the characters created specifically for 4SRW), that most main pilots have several face portraits, with each one expressing different emotions. There are also DVE, or Dramatic Voice Events, which is basically famous spoken line, taken directly from the anime shows, like Hiro Yui of Gundam W's "I will kill you" to Relena.
Power of LoveEdit
It is possible for your team member's attack power to increase, if your attacking team member to close (next to?) his/her lover. Here are some examples:
- Judo - Roux
- Rain - Domon
- Shou - Marvel
- Bernie - Chris
This has to be one of the best trick in the game. In order to do it, first you must:
- Have at least one pilot with Dream
- Have at least one unit that has more than one pilot (Dancougar, Super
Gundam, L-Gaim with Lilis, etc.)
To do it:
- Use Dream.
- Right after you choose Dream, then pick on the unit that has more than one
- Press Cancel twice.
- Press L or R.
Now, the Magic list would be a randomly picked pilot. If that pilot is not in the MAP (You didn't pick him/her in the beginning of the MAP), you can use his/her magic without using any SP! However, some warning:
- The magic used must be Magic that effect other pilots or units, like Rally,
Confuse, Exhaust, etc., not Magic that effect the caster, like Spirit, Miracle, etc.
- The combination (Dream user and the unit with more than one pilot) will
also effect what pilot will be picked. It means that if you use Masaki's Dream on Dancougar, it will yield a different pilot if you have used Masaki's Dream on Combattler V instead.
- The pilot they most likely to be pick is usually from the list of pilots
that appear first in SRWF (basically the ones that appear earliest in SRWF has the better chance of being picked). Which means that it would usually pick Amuro, Emma, Bright, Chris, etc. if you're in Realistic Robot side or Kouji, Boss, Getta team, etc. if you're in Super Robot side.
Once you figure out the proper combination, just keep on doing it. I used Rally all the time and it works like a charm. My team always starts with 150 morale. It's even better if I am in Super Robot side, since I can also use Exhaust!
Seishins are spells which help you in battle. this does not depend on what mech you got.
Seishin are used by pilots therefor, the pilot can change mech, but will keep the same seishin.
It consume Seishin Points (SP), which is different for each pilot. The Seishin "Dream" ( 夢 ) is new to Super Robot Wars.
It allows the pilot to use a seishin of an ally but cost twice the SP.
