For fans unaware, Mazinger Z was created by legendary Manga Artist and storyteller, Go Nagai, he created the characters back in 1972, with an anime version debuting in the December of that year. The show was then succeeded by Great Mazinger in 1974, and then later by UFO Robot Grendizer. Mazinger has enjoyed massive popularity, in Japan and worldwide. Mazinger was also shown briefly under the name Tranzor Z in 1985. Recently Mazinger returned for an all new movie called Mazinger Infinity, which had a limited stateside theatre release.

For those interested, here is the original opening to the anime adaption of Mazinger Z and of its 2009 remake

Thanks for the referrence ;)^ . Yes ever since seeing Tranzor Z myself as a kid (along with of course Transformers, Voltron Robotech etc...) I have been just as big a fan of Super Robots as I am of Transformers. This is a crossover I never thought would happen, can't wait to get this amazing comic.

Here are also some links to R1 US. Licensed releases of the original Mazinger Z and some of it's sequels/remakes

https://www.amazon.com/Mazinger-Z-Impac ... zinger+dvd

and Just released on Blu Ray....

I missed this in the theater, but will definitely be picking up the BRD.

Also, this is my pesonal favorite Mazinger series/opening, though the classic and first one for Z Mazinger are pretty epic as well.




In any case, I can't wait to see how these two universes collide! ;)^

Fire Wars is my favourite opening as well ;)^ it was my get way drug into JAM Project :lol: I didn't include it though as I just wanted to focus on Mazinger Z :)

You're right though, I never thought I would see a cross over like this, and I have to admit, as much of a long shot it is, I'm wondering if transformers will make it into Super Robot Wars :lol:

Well...Machine Robo-Revenge of Cronos made it in SRW...and although it's not truly "Go Bots" I still referred to them as such when playing SRW Impact & MX 8-) . Also I recall, it may just have been an April Fools day thing (like with Hello Kitty a few years back), but I thought I saw a mock-up of Movieverse Prime in a SRW game once.... :-? :???:

Also, looking forward to SRW T :DANCE:

I keep looking at the ps4 games but money is always tight for me :( also I think it was just an April's Fool's joke about movie prime being in the game but there's always a chance, I mean think of the scenarios, like Starscream getting confused by seeing the macross valkyries ;)

Yeah I get it. I got "V" on a good deal, but decided to skip X since the roster didn't impress me (although Mazinkaiser is my favorite, that alone wasn't enough to sway me).... I may wait and see if i can get T for a good deal as well, yeah, almost $100 US to import a PS4 game form Asia, even if it is in English, is tough to justify.

And yet we've yet to see (and most likely never will see) any incarnation of Transformers in Super Robot Wars. :(

If they release it here as well in english, it'll be great. I'd read it.

It's a Bandai game, Takara Tomy would never let it happen.

Isn't the brave series one of those complicated matters as it was made prior to sunrise being bought by Namco Bandai?

Did Floro Dery base Chromia's head on Diana A's? I always thought they looked too similar to be coincidence.

Yup, but as it currently stands TakaraTomy has left anything relating to Brave to the stronger Bandai. The final nail in that coffin would be who handled the model kits: at first it was TakaraTomy-affiliated Kabaya, but now Bandai has released Super Mini-Pla kits for the GaoGaiGar series, in addition to the various Chogokin releases.

I really need some of those kits.

Still it would be nice if Takara and Bandai Namco could play nice just for the sake of one SRW game...that technically would stay in Japan anyway (god bless import shops)

Well the nice thing about the SRW series for Ps4 is that they have had official English translations for Asian markets outside of Japan. The audio is still all in Japanese, but the script & writing is all in English, also since the PS4 is not region locked, they play perfectly on NA PS4. The only disadvantage is that DLC is not accessible unless you open an additional PS4 online account for a different region. But still, I have SRW V, and it is amazing. I am skipping X because it really didn't interest me, but T, which comes out in a couple months looks pretty cool.

Admittedly, there will never be an official NA SRW release because licensing issues would be a nightmare (except for OG games which are occasionally released). But I figure, this *Asian Release* work around is the best way we will ever get English releases of these games.

Just curious...other than some fan art by Matt Frank, when has there been any official Godzilla x Transformers media? I definitely want to go back and revisit that as seemingly I missed it.

I was going to ask the same thing.
I even checked TFwiki, and there is no mention of a Crossover with Godzilla.

Well chalk that one down to my overactive imagination, I could have sworn it was a real thing but I've removed the text from the article, thanks for the correction.

No worries, those art pieces by Matt Frank are totally awesome! (I have them both signed by him, and framed) 8-) Unfortunately Toho really has a death grip on Godzilla, and wont let him really "play" with anyone (I have no idea how the Godzilla vs NGE stuff happened, but again that's mostly just some official art, and a music concert IIRC)

IDW initially wanted to include Godzilla in their Infestation crossovers, but Toho gave them a big fat NO.
