The popular J-RPG tactical series Super Robot Wars has another released planned – Super Robot Wars 30 – celebrating its 30th anniversary. Included in this 30th anniversary is none other than SSSS Gridman!
Here are the details of the game:
30 years on, the battle for our world’s future continues.
Super Robot Wars is a tactical RPG that brings characters and robots from a variety of mecha anime together to battle their mutual foes.
Players follow characters through adventure and battle. Take control of giant robots on a battle map, commanding them to defeat their enemies.
The battle switches between ally and enemy phases. Once the player has moved and attacked with their robots, the enemy takes their turn. When all enemies have been defeated, the game proceeds to an Intermission.
During Intermission, the player can use resources earned in battle to train pilots, upgrade robots, and earn bonuses for their army. They then can proceed to the next chapter of the adventure.
In Super Robot Wars, players can enjoy a unique experience that combines all-star mecha series crossovers, action-packed attack animations, and the chance to upgrade your favorite machines and pilots.

Inferno Girl Red – the brand new graphic novel co-created by Mat Groom and Erica D’Urso – is 161% funded at the time of this article with the first stretch goal (ribbon bookmark) already achieved and the second stretch goal (20 extra pages) within striking distance. The success and popularity of this project has allowed a special reward tier to be created for the biggest Inferno Girl Red fans.
Partnering with Starlight Studios – makers of those impressive Omega Rangers helmets from the Power Rangers comic books – is creating an extremely limited set of 10 Inferno Girl Red helmets. As we contemplate how to scratch up the extra cash to get in on this (seriously there are only 8 left at the time of writing) you should definitely get in on Inferno Girl Red now before it’s too late.
Inferno Girl Red – a brand new tokusatsu-inspired graphic novel by writer Mat Groom and artist Erica D’Urso – is fully funded on Kickstarter and is guaranteed to be in your hands in 2022. We now enter the stretch goal phase of the campaign and with that we’re on board with showing just how amazing the artwork and story are.
Check out the following character studies by Erica D’Urso.
Don’t forget to make your pledge to Inferno Girl Red on Kickstarter. The first stretch goal unlocks a bookmark for the hardcover copy at no extra charge to you.
The hottest tokusatsu-inspired hero is one step closer to reality thanks to a successful Day One Kickstarter campaign. Inferno Girl Red – a graphic novel written by Mat Groom and drawn by Erica D’Urso with colors by Igor Monti – is well over the 50% threshold on day one and will very likely see a successful campaign.
We’re thrilled to share with you a five page preview of the upcoming graphic novel.
The story is as follows:
We all need something to believe in. Especially Cássia Costa.
An ancient cult and their army of demons have stolen Cássia’s home, Apex City. When a magical dragon bracelet rockets into her life and affixes itself to her arm, Cássia’s the only person equipped to stop the cult from offering the entire city to their dark lord.
There’s just one catch…
The magical bracelet is powered by belief, and Cássia — an intensely pragmatic, rational girl – doesn’t have much to spare. She’ll have to find something to kindle her faith, though, and fast —because she has a secret legacy to live up to. Because her mother’s life is on the line. And because Apex City needs Inferno Girl Red.
There’s still time for you to back this Kickstarter and land some awesome pledge rewards. Click here to check out and support the Kickstarter.
