They should use Devolution at some point.


This would be cool, but if there's backlash with PoD!Akito, people would hate Devolution. It's pretty dark & edgy.

Well in hindsight the two are quite different. Idk. What do others think?

They should use Getter Robo Daikessen next time. Plenty of cool units there.

My only issue with Armageddon is the Invaders along with Stinger and Cohen are utter trash compared to Dinosaur and Hyakki Empire baddies.

As for 'Shin Vs Neo' beside the dramatic opening scene and the catchy theme, the OVA isn't that good Getter fans love the original characters and they barely had anything to do in that show.

I've read a few chapters of Devolution it's really great but considering SRW helps in boosting featured series merchandise sales I doubt we'll see a fully featured manga in the game there might be a chance of having the units from the manga just like Shin Mazinger Zero.

I'm already sick of Armageddon. More Shin vs. Neo or New Getter please.

Daikessen is a big change adding it in the srw lineup, Did'nt expect them to include that and maybe if they can add Getter Emperor in the next installment of srw.

We would also need another OG game :( its been 3-4 years already

I'm rooting for Devolution. I've started buying the English translation of the manga, and I've caught up with the newest chapters... the story keeps getting cooler every month.

That gigantic (though imperfect) Emperor? And the six-member Getter?

Yeah, I love how they went all out with the plot. They have adult (real) and teenage ("physical data") versions of Ryoma, Hayato and Benkei piloting Getter together, and they do a "six heart" Stoner Sunshine into the Emperor's face.

I really hope Go and Gai end up piloting the disassembled Dragon, and find a third team member (Michiru?). Then we can eventually have a nine-person Shine Spark.
...I became a Super Robot Wars fangirl without playing the games. Bite me.

New Getter in SRW Neo was pretty cool, its ending would have been a good fit for X.

The new stuff was cool enough I suppose, but it feels like they're just desperately trying to keep Armageddon in there because they don't want to use use the 70s versions anymore but Getter is typically expected.

There's a bigger issue in that the other recent iterations of Getter have their share of problems
New: the characters are significantly wilder than even Armageddon that'd end up getting watered down, but at that point they might as well use Armageddon.
Neo: Ryouma isn't a pilot, overall power scaling is a lot lower that can make things kind of lackluster.

Armageddon provides a convenient mix of an STMC-like "big" threat to humanity (and an equally big power to fight it) while having a Getter team that's grittier than the 70s version but still good at the core.

It's also worth mentioning that how Shin Getter Dragon gets acquired and the scenes related to it is very similar to some scenes in the original manga Musashi and Saotome becoming one with Getter is typical, but Musashi having a moment of Enlightenment regarding Getter right before said scene with a lot of Ishikawa-style lines, which can be taken as them trying to add more manga and other material points to Getter in SRW while using Armageddon as a base. Hell, T's take of Armageddon can be summed up as "Armageddon in name only" in terms of plot at this point.
This is fundamentally similar to them adding ZERO to Shin Mazinger in V and X or Demonbane in UX which used some elements of the original game with the anime as a base (except UX is hard to use as an example due to it being exceptional for a lot of reasons).

Beyond everything, the loss of Ishikawa sucked a lot of drive out of Getter as a whole. A lot of the recent and continuous activity with Mazinger Z could likely be attributed to Go Nagai still being alive.

I still haven't gotten my copy yet (damn you play asia), but I honestly never watched it so I dont think I will be as attached to it as some of the other series like Rayearth, Gundams, Bebop (heard it was implemented horribly though) and Gun x Sword

I agree Armageddon beats New in everything also New got this weird art style and barely any Getter upgrades.

I wouldn't mind SRW changing "Neo vs Shin" plot and making OG Getter and pilots playable contradicting the Anime events. Hell if they can disgard Armageddons next-gen pilots why not the opposite for "Neo Vs Shin".
