Super Robot Wars V Launches Today!



BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Asia, the premier anime videogame publisher, today announces the launch of the English version of Super Robot Wars V, same day as the Japanese edition. SUPER ROBOT WARS V is available now for purchase in Southeast Asia for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in both digital and physical package.

Super Robot Wars V is the second and latest title in the Super Robot Wars 25th anniversary commemorative project. Robots from many different animation series will cross the boundaries of their worlds and join forces to fight a common enemy in this simulation RPG game. The game tells a complete original story, set in a new world.




「Extra Action」 - A New System Feature

A new parameter called ExC (Extra Count) has been introduced. Accumulate ExC by fulfilling certain conditions such as attacking enemy units on the map, or leveling up a unit's main pilot. Use accumulated ExC to activate a special 「Extra Action」 command, which allows a range of special moves such as 「Boost Dash」, 「Direct Attack」, and 「Smash Hit」.

「Extra Order」 - New System Feature

The battleship-specific 「Extra Order」 command uses ExC in exchange for granting special effects to surrounding allied units, such as 「Emergency Recovery」, 「Focus Up」, 「ExC Up」, and 「Recover Action」. Except for 「Focus Up」, none of the commands can be used on the player's own unit.


Nine - New Character

< A new Super Robot Wars character, Nine >


The addition of Nine introduces a new character whose existence is closely intertwined with the System 99 OS of the VangRay prototype anti-alien mobile weapon (the main character's robot). 「Nine」 works alongside the game's main characters Soji and Chitose.

Are you ready for the fight? SUPER ROBOT WARS V is now available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Southeast Asia.
