Banpresto has revealed some new information regarding its upcoming PlayStation 2 title The 3rd Super Robot Taisen Alpha: Shuuen no Ginga he. Just like its prequel, the newest installment in the company's flagship will employ the so-called platoon system. This system will allow players to form teams of up to four mecha units and lead them into battle.

The development team however has implemented several new features. It will now be easier to create your own platoon leader. Furthermore, two new systems have been added as a reaction to fans complaining about the system's difficulty. They are geared towards series' newcomers and veterans who have trouble adjusting to the platoon system. The auto-formation system will let players select one out of three preferences, based on which the game will automatically create a platoon. This will take about two seconds. The second system will automatically use the remaining cost points you might have at your disposal in battle. It will distribute these points based on one out of six selections, the player has to choose from.

The 3rd Super Robot Taisen Alpha: Shuuen no Ginga he will be available in Japan sometime in July for 7,980 yen ($74.07 US).
