Bandai Namco has announced that a Super Robot Wars-centric live stream will be airing on November 19. Taking place between 21:00 to 23:00 JST (7am to 9am Eastern), the stream will focus on the latest news for the franchise. What exactly that means, and if that includes some sort of reveal, is not known right now.
So let’s talk a bit more about the stream and why there may be a game announcement in it.

These streams are a fairly common occurrence in Japan, due to the ongoing support for Super Robot Wars X-Omega, which is a mobile game we’ve reported on before. However, the broadcasts for that game are normally an hour long. Combined with the lack of anX-Omega-specific hashtag, this hints at the idea that there may be more than just this one game present.
In addition, the series almost consistently has at least one release per year. We’re starting to enter that period of time when a game reveal might happen. The announcement for Super Robot Wars X, which came out this year, was almost exactly a year from when this live stream is scheduled. Whether it will be for a new licensed title or a new Original Generation game, who knows. Given the silence from the team responsible for the 3DS entries, along withOG: The Moon Dwellersreleasing more than two years ago, it could literally be anything. Keep your expectations checked if you’re looking for a specific platform or series.
Namco has yet to provide links to the live streams; however, we’ll update this article when they’re posted.
