Hello Kitty and her mecha will not actually be appearing in the upcoming PlayStation 3/Vita strategy RPG Super Robot Wars Z III: Time of Hell, but a April Foos' Day joke has some fun playing with the idea.
The mainline Super Robot Wars, bringing together a host of classic and current mecha anime, continues with Z3, set to be released for the April 10th on PlayStation3 and Vita.

The chogokin line of mecha figures and Hello Kitty both turn 40 in 2014, so the anniversaries are being celebrated together with a special Hello Kitty die-cast robot figure.
"Chogokin" ("super alloy") is the manga equivalent of Marvel Comic's adamantium, introduced as the building block for the pioneering piloted mech Mazinger Z. In the '70s, "Chogokin" also became Bandai's Popy brand's name for die-cast metal figures. The chogokin line and Hello Kitty both turn 40 in 2014, so the anniversaries are being celebrated together with a special Hello Kitty die-cast robot figure.
Set to be released in June 2014 for 4,400 yen, Kitty bot figure features firing fists, an eye change gimmick, a clear cockpit with in scale Hello Kitty pilot, moving head, and a removable bow that can be placed under her feet. It is about 10.5 centimeters tall.
Serina, an idol from SDN48's 1st Generation narrates the promo.
