Super Robot Taisen OG: Original Generations is a tactical RPG game and a remake of the two Original Generation games for the Game Boy Advance™. The game is intended to celebrate the Super Robot Taisen series' 15th anniversary.

Original Generations has been developed by the team that produced Super Robot Taisen MX, and uses high-energy, dynamic action for the in-game battle sequences.

The game features a new combat system called the "Twin Battle System", which allows two adjacent units to combine into one squad, similar to Super Robot Taisen Alpha 2 and Alpha 3's squad system. The Twin Battle System allows both robots to attack simultaneously, and either focus their fire on a single target (with a damage penalty for one of the robots) or, when facing another squad, each target a different one of its members.

Squads can also support-attack with other squads, allowing up to four attacks in a single action. As in the PS2 Alpha games, a single unit can also use an ALL attack to strike both members of an enemy squad at once. The game also features "ALLW Attacks," similar to the "Double Attacks" in MX, which can strike both members of a target squad and a single unit (or squad) directly next to it.

Original Generations has the largest amount of pilot cut-ins in the franchise's history, along with individual, unique animations for certain pilots when using equipable weapons (i.e. Brooklyn Luckfield with the Shishio Blade).


Originally anticipated for release in late 2006, but pushed back to June 2007, Banpresto's Super Robot Taisen OG: Original Generations for PlayStation2™ is finally shipping today as Asia release version at US$ 59.90 only. Each Asia version preorder will include a Perfect File mini guide as preorder gift. The Japanese release version is expected to follow later this week.

From the publisher: In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizarding community is in denial about the teenager's recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort, preferring to turn a blind eye to the news that Voldemort has returned. Fearing that Hogwarts' venerable Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, is lying about Voldemort's return in order to undermine his power and take his job, the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, appoints a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher to keep watch over Dumbledore and the Hogwarts students.

But Professor Dolores Umbridge's Ministry-approved course of defensive magic leaves the young wizards woefully unprepared to defend themselves against the dark forces threatening them and the entire wizarding community, so at the prompting of his friends Hermione and Ron, Harry takes matters into his own hands. Meeting secretly with a small group of students who name themselves “Dumbledore's Army,” Harry teaches them how to defend themselves against the Dark Arts, preparing the courageous young wizards for the extraordinary battle that lies ahead.
