New FeaturesSubpilot System.
The Banpresto Original
character is allowed to choose between three sub-pilots ; each sub-pilot boosts certain stats of the Original machine.Improved Animation. Super Robot Wars: Original Generation 2
arguably brought the animation in handheld SRW games to the level of Super Robot Wars Alpha
on the Playstation. SRWJ would improve on it even further, recreating many attacks featured in the PS2 iterations of the series.Self-Destruct Attack.
Instead of using the "Self-Destruct" Spirit Command, units self-destruct by using a regular attack. Only Boss Borot and Millions Alpha from Mazinkaiser
can use this attack (Justice Gundam was originally planned to have a self-destruct attack, but it was removed in the final version of the game).
