Earlier this year, Namco Bandai announced the release of Super Robot Wars OE for the NDS. Now they’ve announced the release of Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Masou Kishin III – Pride of Justice.
The original Masou Kishin game made its debut on the Super Famicon in 1996 and was the first of the Super Robot Wars games to not only feature all original characters, but also the first to not utilize super deformed animation. Masou Kishin was later re-released for NDS and PSP. The follow-up, Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Masou Kishin II - Revelation of Evil God came out for the PSP last year for, also for the PSP.
There’s not a lot of information about the story for Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Masou Kishin – Pride of Justice, but regardless, I’m excited! It’s another Super Robot Wars game and original Super Famicon version was one of the first Super Robot Taisen games I’ve ever played, so needless to say, there’s a bit a sentimental value for me.
This third installment of the Masou Kishin series is slated due to be released for both PS Vita and PS3 on August 22 in Japan. First print copies of the game will include a code that allows players to change the appearance of Valsione to Valsione R from Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector.
