At a Super Robot Wars live stream held in Japan today, Bandai Namco has revealed not only the new console game Super Robot Wars T but also a new mobile game for the series, which shall be known as Super Robot Wars DD.
Unlike the previous mobile title Super Robot Wars X-Omega, DD will have a proper strategy RPG genre just like the console SRW games, complete with event conversations and voiced battle scenes. The gameplay system in this game is, however, distinguished from the console games with turn orders that are determined by individual unit stats rather than using ally & enemy phases, and also an auto-play feature for casual players and those who want to grind.
With a more storyline-based approach like the console games, players will be able to obtain all available units just by progressing through the game's storyline. This mobile game will have a world selection at the beginning, with each world containing a different set of titles featured. However, all of them will eventually converge into one, so players can start from the world that contains most of their favorite titles. The Gacha system will instead be used to roll Unit Parts which can be equipped into units to strengthen them up.
While notably missing from the Super Robot Wars T roster, the more recent mecha anime titles like Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans and Valvrave the Liberator are making their SRW debut here in Super Robot Wars DD.
