We have been introduced to the new original mech “Cybaster” for Super Robot Wars X last December, but that is not enough for the eager fans right? Bandai Namco has heard your wish, and now here is a new trailer revealing more information about the protagonists and mechs along with the other units’ special abilities featured in Super Robot Wars X!
Players can choose between the male protagonist (Iori) or female protagonist (Amari) at the start of the game, check out their information below:
Iori Iolite is designed by Yun Kouga and voiced by Ryohei Arai. Iori hails from the Otherworld of Al-Warth, where he maintains law and order as part of the Keepers of Order. He is also known as the Sorceror of Iolite. Competitive and serious, he has a strong sense of justice. He has trained in Dogma (magic) since young. To discover the possibilities of his powers, he sets off on a journey in the Xelguard.
- Mech (Ally): Xelguard
- Pilot (Ally): Iori Iolite + Spero
- Weapon (Ally): Whirlwind 2-10-5: VARTEX
- Mech (Enemy): Rune Golem
Amari Aquamarine is designed by Yun Kouga and voiced by Satomi Sato. Amari is a member of the Keepers of Order too. She is also known as the Sorceror of Aquamarine. Courteous and serious, she can also be somewhat timid. However, deep in her heart lies a resolve of steel. To discover the meaning of her existence, she sets off on a journey in the Xelguard.
- Mech (Ally): Xelguard
- Pilot (Ally): Amari Aquamarine + Spero
- Weapon (Ally): Storm 1-10-6: TEMPESTA
Spero is designed by Kazue Nakajima and voiced by Keiichi Noda. Spero is an artificial lifeform created using Dogma and understands human speech. To widen its knowledge, it journeys with the protagonist. It co-pilots the Xelguard and provides support in battle.
Finally, there’s Xelguard, an Autowarlock developed by the Keepers of Order who maintain law and order in Al-Warth. With magic circles on its forearms, it is able to use Dogma (magic) swiftly. However, its magical power amplification is unstable, and its combat abilities are directly affected by the pilot’s condition and magical powers.
