A Premium Sound & Data Pack will be available for download with music from the original IP titles. (Previous games in the franchise offered physical editions with the music from the various IP titles.)

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.
