Both protagonists are designed by Yun Kouga of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 fame, and they will be accompanied by a speaking owl-like familiar named Spero, who is voiced by Keiichi Noda.
Due to the sheer amount of licensing processes needed for the numerous anime shows featured in SRW series, it never made it to the West except for the first few SRW Original Generations games on Game Boy Advance and the OG Saga: Endless Frontier on Nintendo DS as they didn’t feature any existing shows. However, recently we have been seeing new SRW games localized to Southeast Asia which has been seeing a growth in console gaming market, and it is also much easier for Bandai Namco. to handle the shows’ licensing processes in Asia.
The English localization of Super Robot Wars X will be released for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Southeast Asian countries of Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines on April 26. This game will be available earlier in Japan on March 29.
