Super Robot Wars Gaiden: Masō Kishin – The Lord of Elemental (スーパーロボット大戦外伝 魔装機神 THE LORD OF ELEMENTAL) is a Japanese tactical RPG video game developed by Winkysoft and published by Banpresto, which was released in Japan in 1996. It marks as the start of the Masou Kishin side-stories
An updated reboot for the Nintendo DS was out in 2010, under the heading Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Masō Kishin – The Lord of Elemental, bringing the game to continuity with the rest of the Original Generation series. To mark the 15th anniversary of the Masou Kishin series, another reboot of the original game was bundled with Revelation of Evil God, complete with enhanced visuals and extended voice acting.
The storytells solely on the origins of the entire Masou Kishin cast, and the genesis of the long feud between Masaki Andoh and Shu Shirakawa. The plot is split into two parts: "Part 1" occurs prior to the events of Super Robot Wars II, while "Part 2" takes place following the end of 4th Super Robot Wars .
- This is the first SRW title to premiere the following:
- Produce one of its meta series.
- The last SRW game to be made for Super Famicom.
- Give original characters the exclusive spotlight while lacking license predating even SRW-OG.
- Feature non-superdeformed graphics and a 45° angle view of the map (widely seen since).
- Incorporate voice acting
- Despite facts saying this SRW game could have been released for localization, but was prevented due to its rather racy, risque dialogue.
