The fan translation group AGTP is currently about half-way done with an English language patch for the PS1 game Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden. For those of you who don't know, Super Robot Wars is a strategy RPG that uses mechs from a variety of different anime. Shows featured are often from the Gundam, Mazinger, Macross, and Getter Robo franchises.

A preview of this patch can be found here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=y8qL9SLQMMY

This demo is only a sample of the many different mecha series featured in this game. SRW games don't normally get a U.S. release due to the large number of licensing issues that would be involved. The only exception to this rule so far have been the Original Generation games released for the GBA, which contain no licensed characters.

Well, it will be interesting to see if it is ever completed. Several other similar translations have been dropped in mid-development, and never released. If these guys follow through, it will make the game a lot easier for me (although in some small way, a bit less fun...).

didn't SRW have Eva in it too? I could swear I saw a trailer with an eva in it before... might have been something different.

translation project? ugh...

I'm sure the game is cool, but sooo many translation projects get started and never make it through. I had my hopes up for Kanon for sooo long, I even have the DVD-PC version of the game. Alllll in crazy moon writing .

And another problem with any translation project is that it's really dependent on getting ahold of the game. They finished Shingetsuan Tsukihime not too long ago, but that thing is rare as hell even in japan anymore. I know it's a great game, but christ people... pick some titles that are easier to find.

Actually SRW Alpha did have Eva in it, I don't know why it's not in Alpha Gaiden.

Gideon has also announced work on SRW Alpha (http://agtp.romhack.net/project.php?id=srwalpha). "But what's so awesome about Alpha?" you ask. The answer is simple: it has Eva.

Also, Studio Llama is now working on various GBA and PS1 incarnations of SRW (http://studiollama.com/projects.html). As to whether or not they will finish any of these is beyond me.
