Level-5 teases Megaton Musashi W: Wired's upcoming addition of UFO Robot Grendizer [Update]

Update (June 20)

Level-5 has confirmed that they will add the UFO Robot Grendizer crossover content into Megaton Musashi W: Wired in the game's Version 3.1.0 update. The company did not specify the exact date for the new update patch's release, but it is implied that the patch may appear on the same day they put a 50% sale for the game on June 27.

The content's availability period seems a bit ambiguous, as it was previously only available temporarily in Megaton Musashi X: Cross as we reported earlier, and it's also coupled with Level-5 combining the announcement with the news about the discount that will end on July 12. However, it does seem like the content will be permanent this time around, as the only thing players need to do is update their game copy and receive the items from the Check Delivery menu.

Original (June 14)

Level-5 has confirmed that crossover content from UFO Robot Grendizer will eventually appear in Megaton Musashi W: Wired. The company has yet to specify the content's release date though, as they only mentioned "Coming Soon".

When Level-5 released Wired last April, the game included crossover parts from Mazinger Z, Getter Robo, Combattler V, and Voltes V. In fact, Grendizer had also been featured in the Japan-exclusive prequel Megaton Musashi X: Cross, but the catch is that it was only available temporarily as a limited-time content. Players of the free-to-play entry could only obtain the unit for around 2 months from late April 2023 until the end of June 2023.

To recap the Grendizer content in Cross, it has roughly the same amount of features as the existing crossover units in Wired. There will be a simple story mission that players have to clear first to unlock the content. Other than the full body part set, players can also get the Double Harken as a weapon. Two of Grendizer's special attacks—Space Thunder and Screw Crusher Punch—will also be unlockable in the motherboard tech tree. While the player must have a unit equip the full Grendizer part set to use those attacks, it will also come with an exclusive feature of transformation into a Spazer for its cruise mode.

As a warm-up for the upcoming content addition, you can watch the commercial trailer featuring the Grendizer in Megaton Musashi X: Cross which is still available to watch on Level-5's official YouTube channel right below. The company will soon add the unit to Megaton Musashi W: Wired, which is currently available worldwide on PlayStation 5 & 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. While Level-5 had also earlier teased an upcoming content update with version 3.1, they have yet to specify whether Grendizer will also be included in this batch or not.
