Super Robot Taisen (GB) – Final Fight

The game that started it all. Way back in 1991, Banpresto managed to acquire the rights of various popular mecha anime. And what did it do with those rights? It decided to create a game for the Nintendo Gameboy called Super Robot Wars where robots from various series would duke it out for ultimate supremacy. The game was released on the 20th of April, 1991.

The plot is simple. Girgilgun invades and invades the planet of the Super Robots. You pick a team from the respective series namely Getter, Mazinger or Gundam to kick Girgilgun’s and thus free the planet.

You can have a maximum of 8 robots on your team and the robot whom you choose to be the leader of the team will have access to seishin. The seishin available to you are all random and it really depends on your luck. The way to recruit other robots is simple, have one of your team members go convince them and they may or may not join depending on your luck and the health of the enemy.

Considering that this game came out way before Pokemon did, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Pokemon developers had some inspiration after playing Super Robot Wars. Cause seriously speaking, this game introduced many basic aspects and systems which Pokemon would further improve and develop upon in 1996. Then again, this game could be considered an early clone of Fire Emblem but only better.

The game can be really difficult at times so you have to be very patient if you want to win. Anyway, with the success of this game, a new franchise was born and it would continue to grow and thrive as long as fans continue to love Japanese Mecha Anime.
