Title: EXTRY EXTRY! Super Robot Gakuen announced!

Famitsu Scans [1] (http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/9577/2579309051320071c0d7b50.jpg) [2] (http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/8396/2578609051320072cae2f28.jpg)

After years of war, the world has finally managed some semblance of peace. Now, the records of those periods of conflict are being assembled to train the next generation in mehca combat!

The story revolves around the Super Robot Academy, whose main curriculum is the training of new students in the ways of mecha combat, and (something slightly resembling) Super Robot Wars seems to be their main teaching method!

Series (and their graphics) are J, W and K mashed together:
Mazinkaiser
Mazinkaiser: Shitou! Ankoku Daishogun
Shin!! Getter Robo Armageddon
Full Metal Panic!
Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu
Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid
Gundam W - Endless Waltz
Gundam SEED Astray
Gundam SEED X Astray
Nadesico: The Prince of Darkness
GaoGaiGar
GaoGaiGar FINAL
Kotetsushin Jeeg
Gundam SEED Destiny
Gundam SEED C.E.73 Stargazer
Overman King Gainer
Fafner
Gaiking: Legend of Daiku-Maryu
Godannar
Godannar Second Season
Dangaioh
Gun X Sword
Zoids Genesis
Virtual ON
Combattler V
Voltes V
Golion
Dancougar
Zeorymer
SPT Layzner
G Gundam
Brain Powered
Detonator Orgun
(No Tekkaman Blade, sorry...)

This looks to be a collect-and-battle game like Harobots, with similarities to XO's Online Battle mode as well. And, having started the local Harobots topic, I can safely say I am looking forward to this.

GOLION!
GAOGAIGAR!
GODANNAR!
DANCOUGA!

ALL IN ONE GAME!

...

One of these things is not like the other.
One of these things just doesn't belong.
Can you guess which thing is not like the other...
By the time I finish my song?




Possible answers:
Golion: Name is too short.
Godannar: No animal theme.
Dancouga: Doesn't start with a G, has no rocket punch.
Gaogaigar: Doesn't have a sword, only has one pilot.

Because SRW is a PERFECTLY acceptable method for training people in the ways of giant mecha combat.

I mean, it worked for us.

Indeed. Let the alien bastards TRY and take over!

Muge? Mangle 'em!
Zarkon? Zap 'im!!
Nozha? No sir!
Decepticons? Defections!

Okay, I suppose I COULD keep running down the list, but two pop-culture icons and two obscure animes no one here's seen seems a good mix.

Seems they've finally noticed their mistake of following the Shin Getter & Voltron combo with a game that had neither.

That said, WHO DOES A SAINT HAVE TO KILL TO GET SOME VOTOMS IN THE MIX?!

the lack of Tekkaman Blade and Gundam X makes me a little sad but other wise
