Super Robot Wars 30 new trailer, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection new mecha
First, you can find the new trailer for Super Robot Wars 30 below. This is the second full-length trailer for the game. The English version of the trailer should be published by Bandai Namco Southeast Asia in a few hours. We’ll update this story as soon as we can with the English version.
In Super Robot Wars 30, Lelouch and C.C. pilot the Gekkoei Sui, a new mecha based on the Gekkoei appearing in the Lelouch of the Resurrection movie. In the movie, the Gekkoei is incomplete and has no legs, so producer Terada asked Sunrise if they could make a new design with legs to put the unit in the game. The design was handled by Eiji Nakada. Sunrise also did the storyboards for the mecha’s attacks.
The trailer also revealed Banagher is playable. But it’s Banagher from Gundam Narrative and producer Takanobu Terada specified that only Gundam Narrative is in the game, not Gundam Unicorn. He also teased that the third trailer for Super Robot Wars 30 is coming very soon, so they purposefully avoided showing certain things in PV2. GaoGaiGar doesn’t even show up for example, and they saved the final Victory Gundam upgrade and L-Gaim MK2 for PV3.
The final trailer wil also reveal some of the characters and mecha being added as DLC.
