Long-running anime strategy game Super Robot Wars finally gets a Steam release

Super Robot Wars 30, which marks the strategy game series’ 30th anniversary, will launch on Steam¬†for the first time in series history, publisher Bandai Namco announced today. The PC version, which has been localised for Western audiences, releases October 28, and it’ll be a chance to pit all your favourite giant anime robots against each other in tactical turn-based combat.

Super Robot Wars 30 includes characters from a dizzying 22 different robot-centric anime series, with this latest anime game debuting five anime never before seen in the series. There are the classics, like Mobile Suit Gundam, alongside newer series like Majestic Prince and Knights & Magic.

Gameplay is split between turn-based tactics battles featuring teams of hand-picked mechs, and visual novel sequences that feature narrative dialogue and interactions between characters. Super Robot Wars 30 adds a new auto-battle system for players who want to focus in on the cut-in animation sequences rather than the individual moves during battle, so you won’t be stuck fiddling around with robot positioning if you’d rather just sit back and enjoy the story.
