NEO is the first Super Robot Wars title to appear on the Nintendo Wii. NEO carries on from Super Robot Wars GC and Super Robot Wars XO by using 3D models for the battle animations, rather than the standard 2D sprite animation which the Super Robot Wars series is known for. NEO also stands out as the many anime series featured were shows aimed at a younger audience, three of the titles making a debut: Haō Taikei Ryū Knight, NG Knight Lamune & 40 and Shippū! Iron Leaguer originated in the early-to-mid-90s “chibi robo” style of robot anime marketed to children, in which the robots were presented with super-deformed proportions. Most of the Eldran series also make their first appearance in this game. Super Robot Wars NEO introduces several new gameplay features to the series and a new battle system.
