The official website of Bandai Namco Entertainment's Super Robot Wars X-Ω smartphone game revealed on Thursday that it will add Baikanfu from Machine Robo: Revenge of Chronos, the Shining Gundam from Mobile Fighter G Gundam, and Getter Dragon from Getter Robo G to the game on May 1.
The Machine Robo: Revenge of Chronos television anime aired from 1986 to 1987, and is based on Bandai's Machine Robo toy line. Tonka imported the toy line as the GoBots, which inspired the earlier Hanna Barbera cartoon Challenge of the GoBots in 1984, and GoBots: Battle of the Rock Lords in 1986. Baikanfu itself is Machine Robo's remold of the titular toy for the 1979-1980 Toshi Gordian anime.
