Bandai Namco has revealed through the game’s official website that the upcoming Super Robot Wars 30 will allow players to use their own custom BGMs. This feature was also available on SD Gundam G Generation Cross Rays, which was released in the west exclusively via Steam, while also having Asian English releases on Switch and PS4.
This custom BGM system will have restrictions similar to Cross Rays. Namely, only MP3 files are accepted, and they must be in frequencies of 32000, 44100 or 48000 Hz. But it’ll also be restricted to files encoded with constant bit rates of 96, 112, 128, 160, 192, 224, 256 or 320 kbps. This feature will be available on PC, PS4 and PS5 via retrocompatibility, but not on the Switch one.
Super Robot Wars 30 is the newest title in the long-running strategy franchise that works as a crossover of multiple mecha franchises. Not counting the Original Generation games which featured only non-licensed robots, this is the very first game in the series’ 30 years to be released officially in the West. But the series has had Asian English releases since 2016’s Super Robot Wars OG: The Moon Dwellers.
The game will feature newcomers from series such as J-Decker, GaoGaiGar vs Betterman, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Movie III – Glorification, Mazinkaiser Infinitism, Knight’s & Magic, and SSSS.Gridman. Other series included are Gundam (original, Zeta, Char’s Counterattack, NT and Victory), GaoGaiGar Final, L-Gaim, Getter Robo Armageddon, Mazinger Z: Infinity, Magic Knight Rayearth, Gun X Sword, and Majestic Prince.
Super Robot Wars 30 will be released on October 27, 2021. It’ll be available on PC -via Steam– in the West and preorders are already open. PlayStation 4 and Switch versions will have Asian English versions which can be imported and played on those systems as well since they aren’t region-locked.
