Like many of us feared, the Switch version of Super Robot Wars T will NOT have custom bgm. Now it's a choice between custom BGM on the PS4 or portability on the switch pic.twitter.com/xo2VAMHUIc

Ooh. I don’t know if I should get Super Robot Wars T on PS4 or Switch. Might be nice to have it portable, but probably can’t do the music-import (which I haven’t actually bothered with yet)
