Okay Here it is, the complete Episode guide. Thanks to all who emailed

error.
Please note that his Guide is still incomplete. Version 2.0 will be
the last

1) INTRODUCTION:
-----------------

Shin Super Robot War is the latest (as of 4/4/97) of the Super Robot
War series.
Previously the other Super Robot War games were released on the Game
boy (SRW1 & SRW2G),
Famicom (SRW2), Super Famicom system (SRW3, SRW EX and SRW4) and
Playstation (SRW4S).
SSRW is a new start for the series as it has no relation to the
previous SRW games (thus
the word "shin" or "New" in the title), this is to more or less
attract a larger 
audience. Also in the previous SRW games, the units were Super
Deformed (SD), in SSRW
this is no longer the case.

SSRW features the units from the following Anime:

Mobile Suit Gundam:Char's Counterattack
Mobile Suit Victory Gundam
New Mobile War Chronicle Gundam Wing
Blue Comet SPT Layzner
Voltes V
Giant Sky Demon Dragon Gaiking
Mazinger Z
Invincible Torider G-7
Brave Hero Raideen

If you are new to the SRW series , then this is the perfect game to
start.
