Full details on new 2nd Super Robot Wars OG features

More details on 2nd Super Robot Wars OG have been posted by Famitsu on their website.

The biggest reveal is the Ability Slot System. Each character, and each robot, has three Ability Slots that can each be filled with one of four ability boosts between missions. Equipping 3 of the same boost item total between pilot, robot, and their Twin Unit counterpart causes it to activate, but only one boost of each type can be active at a time so stacking to 6 is ineffective. At first, everyone has a limited set, but as you recruit more characters and pick up extras off of defeated enemies, you can customize to your liking.

Example 1 (Solo): Robot A is equipped with Ranged+, Ranged+, Ranged+
Pilot A is equipped with Hit+, Armor+, Armor+
With three Ranged+, two Armor+, and one Hit+, only ranged damage is buffed.

Example 2 (Twin Unit System): Robot A is equipped with Ranged+, Ranged+, Ranged+
Pilot A is equipped with Hit+, Armor+, Armor+
Robot B is equipped with Ranged+, Hit+, Hit+
Pilot B is equipped with Ranged+, Ranged+, Armor+
With three Armor+ and three Hit+, armor and chance to hit are buffed. While the unit has six Ranged+, they have the same effect as if they only had three.

Also in added customization, robot loadout swapping makes its return; the reliable old Gespenst MkII now comes in type N for standard operations, type G for close-in melee combat, or type C for bombardment.

Finally, if you missed out on the earlier PS2 games or want to refresh your memory quickly, a digest mode is available that plays back selected clips from previous games in the series, along with explanatory notation.

2nd SRW OG is due out on November 29th.

    There will also be the usual difficulty system where the amount of SR points you have determines whether you’re on Normal or Hard mode.
