Are you fully caught up on the lore for KH3 and/or DMC 5?  If yes, those are good to go with.  If not, watch vids on youtube (I recommend Barry's KH3 primer or SBF LPs of the DMC games).

DMC5 of course.

KH3 Lore.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
There is no hope attempting it.  I don't expect to understand it beyond hearts and darkness, darkness and hearts.  I'm here for the gameplay.

Barry's "A Good Enough Summary of Kingdom Hearts"

I'm sure, even if you can't really follow it, you will at the very least be entertained.

It's too late Kethrian.  I am already Eijinort.  Fortunately for you, Xeiji my nobody, Jeie my Heartbody, and Eijiplex my Heartnope are all here to...

Wait, sorry, apparently actually I am half-possessing you with my digital dream self Electronic Eiji or Eeiji, so you're also Eiji.  I could do that due to your Darkness, your Dark Darkness, and your Darkheartness which I unlocked with my Chiblade, Kiblade, Keyblade, and X-blade.  But it's pronounced [REDACTED].

Too many good games have come out all at once.

Which do I conquer first?  Kingdom Hearts 3, DMC5, or Sekiro Shadows Die Twice?

Wait. Sekiro is out already?!

DMC5 is good. And something you can actually finish quickly.

It took me registering an Hong Kong account but I got SUPER ROBOT WARS T in my Switch! :D :love :cloud9

First impressions:
-Electron Fairy! Noble Gundam! Engrish is alive and well.
-Man Domon's VA just sounds older, at least it fits the plot since it is after G Gundam's events.
-Checking in the net seems like MKR only joins in stage 19 :shakefist but at least I have their theme available right away and can slap it in Noble Nobel Gundam that arrives relatively soon.
-New MC original theme pretty spiffy.
-Mooks with actual faces but there's like only 2 different faces per faction makes me feel like I'm fighting mass-produced clones. Which may actually be true.

Huh. The Hong Kong version is in English? Or are you using translation FAQs?

Right, the version they sell through the Hong Kong eshop is the english one.

The payment must be done through this site which then gives a an activation code for the Hong Kong Switch eshop, which literally only has the option for putting in game codes.

Oh and seems to have come with the DLC right away, yay early Gespent!

Also gotta love how the translation uses the "politically correct" burning gundam/finger while Domon and Allenby are explicitly screaming GGGGOOOODDDD FFFIIINNNGGEEEERRRRR.

And sometimes they just don't bother like Van finishes his sword attacks with [chestoh] that gets written just like that.

More Super Robot Wars T!

Master Asia: Fight me!
Domon: Wait didn't you die?
Master Asia: Heh I got better.
Domon: So, think you can help us fight this army of robot aliens that want to mechanize everything?
Master Asia: If by 'helping' you mean a 3-way FFA, sure! Now arise once more my death army!
Kamille: IF YOU HADN'T COME CLOSE TO ME YOU WOULD STILL BE ALIVE!
Zombie Soldier:...(already dead).
Neo Zeon: Hey look at the time, it's colony-drop-o-clock!
Master Asia: Damn kids get off my lawn!
Neo Zeon: It's a gundam AAAHHH

Meanwhile at the original villain organization HQ...
Villain 1:Damn the protagonists already beat us 2 times despite we hiring pros and building our own super prototype mechas, what are we missing?
Villain 2: I know the perfect solution LET'S PUT AN ANGSTY TEENAGER IN OUR SUPER PROTOTYPE MECHA!
Villain 1: BRILLIANT!

Then said angsty teenager procceeds to get epic smack talked by all the protagonist cast to don't get in the way of the "grown-ups" (which includes the pilot of Tryder 3 being a 6th grader although granted that kid is also already CEO of a company) and that it's not enough to be an angsty teenager in a super prototype mecha to win the day. :lmao

Still Judau and Kamille shouldn't be pointing any fingers since they didn't start much better.

Judau arriving in Cephiro: "Sure I grew up in a space colony surrounded by giant robots that break the laws of physics everywhere and aliens and people like Master Asia and cyborgs powered by COURAGE and then I discovered I have psionic newtype powers and there's also boson jumping genes and ancient civilizations that left behind even more uber technology, but a magic fantasy world? No way that can be true, this isn't anime."

Also damnit game how dare you make the Rayearth girls play the damsel in distress role, just watching while everybody else blows up the monsters of the level? Sure you can't just hand them their mechas right away, but previous SRW let us play people like Domon and Iczer-1/3 on foot even if they didn't do much! :shakefist

They remember to mention that magic can't be used in the forest of silence only for everyboy in both sides to use magic no problem. :psyduck.

Tetsuya can beat golems. On foot with his bare hands.

Awww, no quest to find the Escudo ore. At least Presea lives.

Of course Mokona can make even super AIs overheat just trying to decipher His speech. The greatest elder one is amused by those big human toys and so allows them to exist another day. Puu. Pu! Puuu? Ppppppppuuuuuu!!!

And now the three magic girls must reach the place with their new mechas on foot while the way is blocked by an army of golems and aura battlers.

Of course the rest of the cast will be providing fire support to clear a path

Meaning Hikari, Umi and Fuu are running on their own while some 30+ giant robots battle all around launching fire, lighting, beams, rockets and whatnot all over the place. Now that's properly badass!  :love

Fuu's a vancian spellcaster with actual prepared spells while the other two magic knights just have their spells be normal attacks by any other name. Wait, the secondary character getting unique abilities in a SRW game? What madness is this?

Also Eagle arrives right in the next stage? Damnit man we're still in season 1 plot, you're only supposed to appear in season 2!  :shakefist

 And of course he charges alone against two battleships and a small army worth of mechas. At least he actually has all his attacks from the anime! All two of them, vulcan and beam saber, truly a discount gundam. Also damn his beam saber has a whooping 5 range, even Kamille and Judau can't go over range 3 with their newtype power enhanced super beam sabers and even Domon can only reach 4 range twin beam sabers with his martial skillz.
