Super Robot Wars 30 was announced in a Japanese Nintendo Direct earlier this year. Very soon after the reveal, Bandai Namco followed up by confirming plans to release the game in Asia. It’s especially noteworthy since that region will have English support.

Play-Asia has now opened pre-orders for the Asian version of Super Robot Wars 30. You can reserve it here.

Since Switch is region free, you can play through the game without any issues. Bandai Namco hasn’t any plans to bring Super Robot Wars 30 to the west on Switch, so the Asian version will probably be your only way to play in English on the system.

Clannad Side Stories is coming to Switch this month. The title is confirmed to be supporting English, and will be getting a worldwide release. However, only Japan will be receiving a physical version.

Clannad Side Stories launches for Switch on May 20. Pre-order the physical version on Play-Asia here.

Play-Asia has now opened pre-orders. You can reserve both games here.

SD Gundam G Generation Genesis and SD Gundam G Generation Cross Rays Platinum Edition are due out for Switch in Asia on March 25.

Koei Tecmo and Gust announced Atelier Mysterious Trilogy Deluxe Pack earlier this week. Although it’ll be released in the west, similar to past titles, it’ll be digital only.

Citizens Unite!: Earth x Space is planned for a worldwide release, but in the west, it’ll be digital-only. That’s in contrast to Japan and Asia, which is also getting a physical version.
