Chou Super Robot Wars Æ (超スーパーロボット大戦Æ Chō Supā Robotto Taisen Æ , Ultra Super Robot Wars AE) is a crossover mecha tactical role-playing/fighting game co-developed by Banpresto and Monolith Soft and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for the Nintendo Switch. It was released alongside in Japan and Asian territories on December 8, 2021 as part of 30th anniversary of the Super Robot Wars series. The sixth installment of the Cross Crisis Series, the game's events are linked to Project X Zone 3: War of Infinite Worlds, developed by much of the same crew a year after the release of its Ultimate Version, the sequel to 3rd Super Robot Wars OG that was also released a year prior and the chronological series finale of Super Robot Wars.
The game was a commercial and critical success, having shipped 450,000 units in the first month of Japanese release and sold 4 million by the end of the year, being one of the highest-selling games in the Super Robot Wars franchise.
The Æ in the title stands for either Æon or Æterna (Eternal) (also spelled as Aeon / Eon and Aeterna) and the game's catchphrase is “The great war of giants of metal, transcending through eons” (時代に超越する、金属の巨人達の戦 Jidai ni chōetsu suru, kinzoku no kyojin-tachi no ikusa ).
An updated port on the PlayStation 4 would be released a year later entitled Chou Super Robot Wars M.
On June 13, 2019, Sam Imbecile, one of the head writers and developers for Project X Zone 3, stated in E3 2019 that his next game project would be a midquel to Project X Zone III where its story takes place during the events of the game. He also stated that it would be as large, if not possibly larger than the massive crossover.
On September 6, Sam posted in Twitter: "My next game project? Think of it as Super Robot Wars on steroids, mixed with 97 beers, weed, acid, LSD and cocaine." and it became most liked and re-tweeted post of the month. As such, fans of Super Robot Wars and mecha anime in general were excited to see a new game in the series where it coincides with the events of Project X Zone 3.
Two weeks later, Sam announced the release of the new SRW game which was originally the same date of release as Project X Zone III: Ultimate Edition. However, just like the case of Project X Zone 3, he had to research and marathon several anime in the mecha genre so that he could write the story of the next game, as well as play every single mainstream Super Robot Wars game from the first to the latest. Therefore, the game became two separate ports: one to be released for the Nintendo Switch alongside the PXZ3 Ultimate Edition for Bandai Namco's 65th anniversary and a PlayStation 4 port for the Super Robot Wars' 30th anniversary.
It is also announced in the live event that it will officially receive an English release in East and Southeast Asia and be the first game in series to be given a D rating by CERO due to mature and controversial themes that carried over from Project X Zone 3. In addition, the game will provide enhanced animation and graphics seen in 3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Celestial Prison Chapter, Super Robot Wars V & Super Robot Wars X. It is also confirmed to be the definitive finale of the Super Robot Wars series and by extension the entirety of the "Banpresto meta-series" that expanded over the aforementioned franchise, as well as Project X Zone, Compati Hero Series and more.
The game itself marks a lot of new entries to the series and also a lot of returns. The game marks the return of UFO Robot Grendizer, Brave Raideen, Space Runaway Ideon, GEAR Fighter Dendoh, Chōdenji Robo Combattler V, Chōdenji Machine Voltes V, Tōshō Daimos, Gaiking: Legend of Daiku-Maryu, Koutetsushin Jeeg, Sengoku Majin GōShōgun, Keroro Gunsou, Cyber Troopers Virtual-On and many more into the series proper after a long hiatus, the debut of Transformers in the form of the Unicron Trilogy incarnation (Armada, Energon and Cybertron) and the appearance of various franchises and characters that previously appeared in the mobile game Super Robot Wars X-Ω, including ones who also made an appearance in Project X Zone 3. The game also sees the appearance of the Original Generation cast.
In the game's second promotional trailer, the game debuts the Grendi-Caesar (グレンダイシーザー Gurendaishīzā ), an upgrade to Grendizer, making it the third original mecha from the Mazinger franchise to debut in Super Robot Wars since Mazinkaiser and Mazin Emperor G.
Like the previous titles of the series, Chou Super Robot Wars Æ is a tactical RPG game with story elements and utilizes the same graphics engine seen in 3rd Super Robot Wars Z, Super Robot Wars V & Super Robot Wars X, but with an inclusion of a 3D isometric map unlike its predecessor.
It adapts many same elements of combat and gameplay from 3rd Super Robot Wars Z and 3rd Super Robot Wars Alpha: To the End of the Galaxy, such as attack bonuses, squads composing of a maximum of four units, team attacks and combination attacks.
The game is also notable for being the first in the series to provide the player with an avatar character and an entirely customizable robot, rather than just an original character and mecha like with all other entries.
Player and enemy units are divided into seven classifications with different functions and stats: Super Robots, Real Robots, Power Armors, Giant Heroes, Kaijus, Vehicles and Battleships.
- Super Robot - (i.e. Optimus Prime, Mazinger Z, Gurren Lagann, Shin Getter Robo, EVA Unit 01, MechaGodzilla, etc.)
- Real Robot - (i.e. Zeta Gundam, Tsugumori, KG-6 Sleipnir, ARX-8 Laevatein, Guren S.E.I.T.E.N., VF-1S Valkyrie, etc.)
- Power Armor - (i.e. Tekkaman Blade, Boosted Gear Scale Mail, etc.)
- Giant Hero - (i.e. Ultraman, Gridman, etc.)
- Kaiju - (i.e. Godzilla Earth, Mothra, etc.)
- Vehicle - (i.e. Super X-III, Aircrafts, Tanks, Drones, etc.)
- Battleship - (i.e. Macross, Yamato, Blue Typhoon, Nadesico C, Brunhild, etc.)
Taking place after the events of 3rd Super Robot Wars OG and during Project X Zone 3, various worlds across the Multiverse are slowly being destroyed one by one and countless millions of lives lost in the crossfire with the suspicion that a great evil is responsible for this.
Ten years after Unicron's empire of Decepticons laid waste upon Cybertron and forced the Autobots to flee their destroyed homeworld, Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots, along with his comrades who were scattered across the galaxy seeking for a new planet, visit Earth… along with a wandering seemingly-almighty source of power called the AllSpark.
Meanwhile, in the Land of Light, the Father of Ultra observes the situation of what's happening with the Multiverse and understands that the problem is probably the gravest and most dangerous anyone will ever face, so he sends his sons Taro and Leo, as well Seven, Astra and 80, to summon a grand alliance of heroes from any world they could find that had not been ravaged by the Genocide of Heroes.
After some time, a grand alliance of good is formed from the heroes of ten Earths:
- Earth-35 (Universal Century Earth);
- Earth-6C7G (Cosmic Era Earth);
- Earth-A509 (Anno Domini Earth);
- Earth-9909 (After Colony Earth);
- Earth-8334209 (Post Disaster Earth);
- Earth-123P (Build Fighters Earth);
- Earth-007F (After War Earth);
- Earth-10O8 (Regild Century Earth);
- Earth-233 (Advanced Generation Earth); and
- Earth-ZY48 (Future Century Earth).
Time begins to run out for the Earths in both the past and the future while in the present, the Father of Ultra tells the heroes of his plan to halt the approaching antimatter waves by transporting them to various times in various Earths where they help the Ultras build Time-Space Towers by harnessing the power and technology of the AllSpark that are to be activated to save reality.

When starting the game, the player creates an avatar and chooses between the four scenarios in the second chapter, one for each combination of a male or female protagonist and super or real robot, as follows:
- Avatar/Hero of Earth-Prime - Male/Female. (Default Option: Kazuki Okino - Male.) The first Super Robot Wars game to provide the player an avatar with a customizable mecha, the protagonist who would later be known in the game as the Hero from Earth-Prime is an avid otaku and fan of mecha anime, to the point where he/she even imagines him/herself piloting a robot. He/she is rescued by whoever the player picks will be his/her companion throughout the game when his/her home-universe, Earth-Prime, was unfortunately destroyed in the Genocide of Heroes. Afterwards, in his/her quest to avenge his/her lost home, the player can choose to pilot either a Super Robot or a Real Robot, customize and name it.
Super Robot Pilots
If the player chooses to pilot a Super Robot, he/she can choose either of the two of the following protagonists to be your companion.
- Isaac Flynn - Male, pilot of Dragonturtle Mk. II - Victory God Mode and later a co-pilot of the Chou Mashiach Ben Yahuwah after giving the Victory God to either the Avatar or Aya Nishio. First appearing in Project X Zone 3, Isaac plays a more central role in the game. If Avatar is female, Isaac can become her love interest.
- Aya Nishio - Female, pilot of either the Ferrum Opus and would later control Isaac's Victory God. Becomes one of the main characters only if Isaac is selected as the deuteragonist. If the Avatar is male, the player can have the option to be Aya's boyfriend.
- King Aurelio - Male, the King of the Mewni Dimension and the father of Princess Eve Butterfly. He was thought to have been killed two decades ago, but he actually went into hiding to lead the creation of the two ultra-powerful mechas, Grendi-Caesar, which he gave to Duke Fleed, and Evangelion Unit-Omega, which he pilots himself.
- Manami - Female, pilot of Magical Robo MagiSun, if the Avatar is female. If the Avatar is male, she pilots Magical Robo MagiMoon instead. Later, she pilots the Magical Super Robo MagiEarth. In addition, the player may choose Manami to be his girlfriend.
- Queen Amayano - Female, pilot of Seikishin GingaSeiShi the 37th. She becomes one of the main characters of the story if Hanami is selected as the deuteragonist. She was the Queen of an intergalactic Terran Empire from Earth-DG00X but was driven out after her universe was decimated by a wave of antimatter.
- King Endymion - Male, the King of Crystal Tokyo and the Earth that is turned into a frozen wasteland in the future. He appears as a spiritual entity, controlling the Gaea Aeterna, the embodiment of the Earth.
Real Robot Pilots
In contrast, if the player chooses to be a Real Robot pilot, he/she can choose one of the following below to be the deuteragonist throughout the game.
- Mikio Yunose - Male, pilot of Gallileaneus AstroMark-3.
- Haruto Asuka - Male, pilot of the ZGMF-X67A Truth Gundam and the fifteen-year-old son of Shinn Asuka and Lunamaria Hawke.
- Miriam Moonway - Female, pilot of UNCL-FM-23 Europa. Miriam is a Filipino-American Fighter Model pilot in the United Nations Combat League.
Cross Crisis Series Characters
These recurring characters from other installments in the Cross Crisis Series also play as major characters and are given "Banpresto Original" robots or kaiju forms to fight. Since the majority of the series' original characters are co-created by Arc System Works and Banpresto, they count as being Banpresto Original characters.
- Tsukuyomi - Male, the patron deity of the far-eastern kingdom of Rad in Eostia. Initially awoken in his sealed and weaker form by Katsuma, he would later evolve into his true and awakened form, Shin'ou Tsukuyomi, which would be "piloted" by both Katsuma and the shrine maiden Kaguya.
- Katsuma - Male, the villain-turned-anti-hero who debuted in Namco X Capcom: Crisis. Known by his alias "Moon Knight", he is the summoner and pilot of Tsukuyomi, and later, "co-pilot" of the more powerful Shin'ou Tsukuyomi.
- Kaguya - Female, the beautiful shrine maiden and devoted priestess of Tsukuyomi, and one of the seven members of the Order of Chivalry. She would fight alongside her lover Katsuma by acting as Shin'ou Tsukuyomi's spiritual medium while the Moon Knight commandeers him.
Other Original Characters
- Goldstreak - Male, commander of the Orbots, an autonomous sect of the Autobots stationed in the Orb Union, Earth-6C7G.
- Prince Kamimura XXVI - Male, pilot of Jakishin Kuro-Zeta-0 and later Hyakkishin Gin-Omega-100. He is the son of Queen Amayano and King Kamimura XXV and was presumed dead when Earth-DG00X was erased. It is later revealed that he is alive and under Megatron's control.

- Not counting the mobile game Super Robot Wars X-Ω, Chou Super Robot Wars Æ surpasses 3rd Super Robot Wars Z as the game with the largest playable cast in the series before the sequel Chou Super Robot Wars M takes the spot.
- It is the only entry in the Cross Crisis Series that doesn't have "X"/"Cross" in the game title.
- As a side-story to Project X Zone 3, characters, villains and plot elements from the game are also present here. Many other characters only appear in cameos in cutscenes.
- References from Project X Zone III are also made in various points of the game.
- The follow-up Chou Super Robot Wars M will correspond directly with the events of Project X Zone 3's endgame arc.
- In the same vein that Project X Zone 3's story is the darkest in the Namco Cross series, the Chou Super Robot Wars storyline is also considered to be darkest, most surreal and mature in the entire Super Robot Wars franchise, due to presence of disturbing themes such as rape, slavery, genocide and child abuse, sexual content, nudity, excess blood and gore, extreme graphic violence, profanity, religious implications, character deaths, surreal realism, drug materialism and moments of depression throughout the game.
- Additionally, the game was originally going to add eroge elements similar to Project X Zone 3, but the idea was dropped because the creators thought it would be "too much and go for copying Project X Zone 3".
- Because of such, it is the first SRW game to receive a D rating by CERO.
- This is the first game in the Super Robot Wars series to feature characters from the Transformers franchise.
- The Galactic Empire-Free Planets Alliance divide and civil war between the heroes is reminiscent of the ZAFT-ZEUTH split and the in-fighting among ZEUTH allies in Super Robot Wars Z. The difference is that the player can choose to fight alongside either of the two sides or stay neutral for ten stages.
- It is the first non-Original Generation SRW game to feature multiple Banpresto Original characters from the Original Generation cast.
