Does it need weapons? Cowboy Bebop can hack things with his computer. And I guess they can just launch spike out of it like a missile, that's an attack!

Throw it in alongside Gundam IBO and Nadesico for maximum Martian clusterfuck.

I mean, if you want maximum Martian clusterfuck, you'd also put in Diebuster. As a bonus, it means doubling up on the relationships between pink haired girls with attack drones and dark skinned blondes.

It boggles my mind that Blue Destiny didn't get in. A perfect compliment to NT with its own dead Newtype power system shenanigans, but...nope.

Blue Destiny is extant enough to get into EXVS or other Gundam-specific crossover stuff, but it's still rather obscure for SRW.

On the subject of weird wishlist stuff, I'd really like a spinoff where we play as the villains. Maybe go a little ghiren's greed with it where we take over the universe; or just make it a diabolical defeat simulator, I don't care. I'd think it'd be neat for a game or two.

The expansion disc for Z had a mini-campaign like that. Though of course it ran into the problem as ending right as it really got going and you got a bunch of neat toys.

Top of my head, way back in SNES Super Robot War EX has three routes based on which main character you choose to play, and one of them is Shu, the primary villian from the Masou Kishin series. His team is made up of characters that are bad guys from other series.

Weeeelllll, there's been a few changes in recent Masoukishin/OG titles....

Long story short Shu is now basically Masaki's engineer, and there was a scene in Moon Dwellers where the entire protagonist cast unanimously agreed to follow a suggestion from Shu that directly contravened orders in their own military command structure, to give you an idea of how much trust and regard he's earned from the protags at this point since his Armageddon stage. (Also his player unit is even MORE broken in a good way now.)

I'm still mad we didn't actually get the Bebop as a battleship.

I'm not sure when they recorded voice lines, but Jet's voice actor died about 9 months before T was released, which kinda makes it difficult to include him as a main pilot. I know Jet had a few lines in that one Spike attack but I'm not sure if it was just recycled from the show.

Incidentally, might be worth noting for the obscura that only the PS4 version of Moon Dwellers is available in something resembling English - the PS3 release is Japanese-only.

I am unreasonably hype for SRW 30 and really hoping they have fun with Combattler and Eldora existing in the same universe.

Even without a full villain game, I'd love a game where the 'reasonable antagonists' are on your side from some series and the protagonists join later. You could easily swing this with the Rustal faction from IBO, but it'd also work for Suzaku from Code Geass. As a bonus it might finally lead to playable Cornelia.

actually come to think of it, lelouch of the resurrection will probably lead to playable Cornelia. huh

Oh god a game where you play with the Good Guys (for some reason I'm just imagining Rustal and basically any other Federation types) and at some point, probably early on, the Barbatos just shows up in full murder mode to ruin your day would be amazing. "Those colours! It's a Gundam! I bet it's on our side!" And then someone gets smashed.

Probably, yeah.

I think Bright and Rustal could have some pretty good interactions. They're fairly similar people in a lot of ways, even if Bright is one of the last honest officers in his setting, and Rustal is incredibly corrupt. However, that would probably be something better saved for a second or third game with IBO season 2 in it. First time out, SRW tends to go with just a basic version.

They kind of did that with Z and how it dealt with Seed Destiny but that WAS admittedly reinforced by the source material itself. But yeah, that's another good one to add to the pile.

If OG ever gets around to doing Z, you could maybe get away with doing a Steel Dragon Battalion vs Divine Crusaders gimmick. Like, if you rebooted the continuity you could split things so that the Hagane and Hiryu go with the feds, while the Kurogane and (for instance) the Valstork go with the DC.

Fun(?) fact: while I was thinking about thread titles it turned out this game is just loaded with knights. Knights & Magic, Magic Knights, Knightmares/Black Knights, Gridknight, Knight Cop. It's almost a pity we're one Mazinger revision away from Kanjite Knight (but Gribblekaiser is worth everything).

Team Terrorist is one of the many reasons why we need a Z2 translation.

Or better yet, a new game with the players from team Terrorist returning, along with Hathaway and IBO.

It also got a new manga with a couple new MS designs a little while back.

I'd say a bigger sign of its importance is that its kits got mainline HGUC releases for all three Blue Destiny models. Meanwhile, G-Unit and Advance of Zeta are P-Bandai exclusive. That suggests Blue Destiny is, if not mainstream, at least not super-obscure either.

It is slightly wild to me that there has been exactly one (1) SRW with TV Gundam 00 in it, and that's Z2. Literally everything else is primarily Trailblazer.

Hell, full TV Geass is fairly rare; I believe SRW X doesn't do *all* of Geass and is based on the compilation movies, right?
