Super Robot Wars Compact 2 was the second Super Robot Wars
strategy RPG to be released on the WonderSwan. Like Super Robot Wars F
/ F Final
before it, Compact 2 is split into multiple parts: Part 1
and Part 2 occur simultaneously, while Part 3
continues from Part 2. Using the WonderSwan's internal memory, players can send their clear data to each successive game; several events are altered based on the player's previous save, gained items are carried over to Part 3, and a special final scenario can be unlocked by clearing the entire trilogy within 777 turns.
The game, like its predecessor
, borrows almost all of its gameplay mechanics from F/F Final; however, it introduces the "Support System" which immediately became a core mechanic of the SRW franchise.
Earth Crisis introduces Ninja Senshi Tobikage and Hyper Combat Unit Dangaioh, while Cosmoquake features the debut of Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos.
The entirety of Compact 2 was remade into Super Robot Wars Impact
for the PlayStation 2.
