Bandai Namco held a new stream for the Super Robot Wars series on October 12. The first part of the stream was the usual, with new additions to SRW Cross Omega being announced, the toys corner, etc. The second part of the stream was a talk show with Producer Takanobu Terada and Soichiro Morizumi, one of the main writer of SRW games. We’ll be covering the talk show in upcoming separate articles. For now, here’s what happened on the first part of the stream, with all the announcements regarding the 5th anniversary of Cross Omega.

First off, Bokurano and Space Runaway Ideon were announced as the new time-limited additions coming to SRW Cross Omega. Bokurano was revealed with a trailer:

A Bokurano anime Bluray Box was announced as well. it’ll launch in Japan on January 27.

Producer Terada explained Bokurano is one of the series seiyuu Tomokazu Sugita has been asking him about for years. Sugita often brings up the subject when they meet, so now, Bokurano is finally in Super Robot Wars. Though many would like to see it in a console game too.

Another reason why they’re adding Bokurano is because they’re now also adding Ideon to Cross Omega. They wanted to add both at the same time. Seiyuu Kenji Akabane joked they’re adding way too much power in one go. Ideon has already been in a console SRW game.

Lastly, Bandai Namco released a Live 2D model for Chatte, the female main character of SRW Cross Omega. You can download the model on the game’s official site. Live 2D is the most popular app used to animate models by Virtual YouTubers.

Stay tuned as we’ll soon post summaries of the talk show with Soichiro Morizumi.
