Bandai Namco has just released the second trailer for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Super Robot Wars BX. The trailer is rather lengthy, clocking in at around 14 minutes. The heft is due to the fact that it showcases the special attacks of many characters featured in the game.
For the uninitiated, Super Robot Wars is a strategy RPG franchise that pits various mechas from popular licenses (including internationally famous ones such as the gundam, mazinger z, and macross franchises) and throws them in a continuity-spanning story that will see many odd yet fan-appreciated matches. While the franchise has already made several forays to the west, the sheer amount of licenses (which need to be relicensed for the West) involved made it impractical to port the actual games, so the English games used original characters and mecha designs. With that in mind, it’s highly unlikely that Super Robot Wars BX will be making its way to the West.
