Super Robot Taisen L Coming November 5 2010

Super Robot Wars L | スーパーロボット大戰L
A new Super Robot Wars game developed by Banpresto and published by Bandai Namco Games is on its way to the Nintendo DS. The new game is called Super Robot Wars L (スーパーロボット大戰 L), a tactical game where you arrange robots in a grid-like environment, place them next to each other and battle each other. Special animations appear for each robot that makes an attack.

The game is primarily intended for anime fans who love mecha and the game features different mecha and characters from different anime. The most prominent robots in the entire series are those from Mazinger Z, Getter Robot, Gundam, and Evangelion but a whole lot of others are there too.

Some features that are going to be introduced in this installment is the tension system which either increases or decreases your chances of hitting your enemy for each successive attacks, and the partner battle system. Now  some of you might ask if you need to know or learn Japanese to learn this game. My answer is, base on personal experience the game can be played with no or very little knowledge in Japanese. You just got to know what to click, and which button in the game does to actually play the game. Sure, it would help more if you know at least some basic Katakana and Hiragana and at least know what Kanji characters are.

The original characters for the game has also been named (or those that don't belong to any particular anime)  has also been named. They are:

Nagumo Hazime - A 15 year old kid whose parents died in a war on Earth.
AL-3 Alice - An android who is a housekeeper and created by Dr. Grief
Dr Grief - An inventor who makes unusual inventions
