Super Robot Wars V Switch version ships in Southeast Asia on October 3

Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia announced on July 25 that it will release an English version in Southeast Asia for the Super Robot Wars V and Super Robot Wars X games on the Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.

The Switch version of Super Robot Wars V will ship in Southeast Asia on October 3. The digital version of the Switch release will also have a limited edition, but players must have a Nintendo Hong Kong or Japan eShop account to access the limited edition bonuses (as there is no Nintendo eShop for Southeast Asia). Early purchasers of the Switch version will also get a code for several bonuses, but players will need to have Nintendo Hong Kong eShop access to redeem the code.

Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia did not reveal release dates for the other releases.

Bandai Namco Entertainment recently announced the games for PC and Switch release in Japan. The releases will be the first Super Robot Wars releases for the PC in the franchise's history.

Super Robot Wars V debuted for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan in February 2017. The game also received an English-localized release in Southeast Asia. The game featured the debut of mecha and characters from Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway's Flash, Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam: Skull Heart, Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam: Steel Seven, Yūsha Tokkyū Might Gaine, Shin Mazinger Zero vs. Great General of Darkness, Space Battleship Yamato 2199, and CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon.

Super Robot Wars X debuted for the PS4 and PS Vita in Japan in March 2018. As with Super Robot Wars V, Super Robot Wars X also received an English-localized release in Southeast Asia in April 2018. The game featured the debut of mecha and characters from Gundam: Reconguista in G, Buddy Complex, Buddy Complex: Into the Skies of Tomorrow, Nadia - The Secret of Blue Water, and Mashin Eiyūden Wataru.
