The Super Robot Wars series has been churning out games for decades now, with the first game being released for the Game Boy back in 1991. Despite numerous titles being released in Japan, not many have made it overseas due to licensing issues between the numerous anime shows being represented. Games such as Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier, however, did make it to the West.

The game’s atheistic closely resembles that of a anime, with richly detailed 2D sprites duking it out on the map. Here and there, cutscenes were shown featuring 2D-esque anime characters. The game wasn’t given a specific release date, but it is coming out in 2019.
