The "Super Robot Wars Steel Ultra Appreciation Festival 2021" event debuted a new promotional video for Super Robot Wars 30, the latest game in the long-running Super Robot Wars crossover strategy role-playing game series, on Sunday. The video announced more of the game's intellectual property lineup and October 28 launch.

The festival also announced that the Super Robot Wars DD smartphone game is marking its second anniversary this year by adding the 45th anniversary Super Sentai series Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger and Pac-Man for a limited time. The staff announced that Guinness World Records certified the franchise's world record for "most intellectual property licenses used in a role-playing video game series."

In addition, there will be two DLC sets this year, each with nine playable mecha (including two from the Super Robot Wars OG sub-franchise) and 13 missions. Players can purchase a season pass with early access to both DLC sets and two bonus missions. The "Ultra Limited Edition" will bundle a Metal Robot Damashii (Ka signature) Side OG figure of Huckenbein 30 and a serial code to download the original soundtrack.

The game will launch on October 28 for the PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam in both Japan and Southeast Asia (in English).
