Everything that's known about Namco Bandai's latest robot strategy game.
Super Robot Taisen L now has a teaser site. It is very purple. See it for yourself here.
There's no info at the site at present, but as usual we can turn to Famitsu.com and its print counterpart for specifics.
Super Robot Taisen L is the latest DS entry in Namco Bandai's robot strategy franchise. The game is due for November 25 release at ¥6,090. As a pre-order bonus, Namco Bandai will be including a case that can store such things as game carts and memory cards.

On the gameplay front, L promises to retain the familiar pairing of conversation and turn-based strategy play for which the series is known. Of course, you'll also be able to modify and improve your units using money that you earn during battle.
In this week's Famitsu, development producer Ayumi Uta (just one of the producers... Takanobu Terada is also listed as producer) said that the game has been made more simple and friendly in its return to the DS. We can expect improved quality and smoothness for the game's trademark battle cut-ins. Uta also promised event animation similar to what was used in K.
Development on Super Robot Taisen L is currently 80% complete, according to Famitsu. A promotional video consisting of combat footage will be posted to the official site in early September.
That video was actually aired in advance at the weekend Chara Hobby 2010 event in Makuhari. Dengeki Online posted a short writeup on the event, which featured a talk stage with Uta and various voice staffers.
