Back in the days of cartridge converters and illegal modifications all for the purpose of playing imported games, most American gamers only heard about elusive Japanese games and could only find out about them from rare magazine articles or word of mouth. With the internet and a greater interest in gaming, not only is more information making it to western gamers by way of individual user created videos, but there is a greater number of games being published here as well.

Fresh off our look on SD Gundam G Generation World, we still have a tingling for some more strategy RPG action. Luckily, Dai-2-Ji Super Robot Taisen Z Haikai-hen (or Super Robot Wars Z II) just came out for the PSP in Japan and satisfies our mecha craving even more. Rather than several series from one franchise, Z II includes a myriad of both classic and modern robot series, ranging from Mazinger Z to even Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Robot nerds, look no further for your nerdgasm.
