Super Robot Wars Alpha.

Fat's in Seattle & called me to inform me he just dropped $100 on the Japanese import of Super Robot Wars Alpha for the Dreamcast (& the boot disk to trick his DC into thinkin' its Japanese). This is the version w/ mecha from 10 of the Gundam series &/or movies, Evangelion, Mazinger, Getter Robo, & Macross. WOW!!

I immediately started looking for screen shots & was FLOORED by the youtube snippets I found. The opening sequence, for example...

From Macross, the attacks of Roy Focker's veritech variable fighter! Yay!

The real gem. Eva units 00, 01, & 02. Check out how music, voicework, & actual cell animation from the series is worked into the game animation. Even a special joint attack derived from my fav episode: Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win!
