Robot and mecha fans who like to see their favourite anime battle machines duke it out in turn-based fashion: Bandai Namco has news for you.
The next Super Robot Wars game, Super Robot Wars 30, will be out for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC (Steam) in the Japanese language later this year on 28th October. An English subtitled version is definitely in the cards for Bandai Namco, at least in Southeast Asia.
