Super Robot Taisen: Card Chronicle coming to iOS and Android

Super Robot Taisen – known as Super Robot Wars on this side of the pond – is coming to iOS and Android devices in the form of a card battling game. (That's battling via cards ... not two giant, thin paper sheets scrapping it out for world domination.) Siliconera reports that Super Robot...

11 minutes of SRW OG Endless Frontier's elaborate battle animations

As shallow as it might seem, these battle animations are the only reason why we bother watching these SRW OG Endless Frontier clips, or any video for the Super Robot Wars series, for that matter.
