4th Super Robot Wars is a tactical RPG for the Super Famicom developed by both Banpresto and WinkySoft and published by Banpresto. It's the 5th entry to the classic Super Robot Wars series and the last entry to the Divine Crusaders Arc.

Gameplay

Gameplay of 4th Super Robot Wars is literally similar to its predecessor, Super Robot Wars EX which uses battle sprites for animations. When a stage begins, the character receives introductory dialogue between playable characters, leading to the scenario on the battle field. To complete a scenario, the player must accomplish scenario objectives. Some scenarios are longer, with multi-part missions or have new objectives added as the story unfolds. On battle field, the player and enemy take turns to order their units with commands available, such as movement, attacking, forming squads and casting "Spirit Commands", a set of magic-like spells unique to each pilot. Once the scenario is cleared, more dialogue is exchanged between characters before the player is taken to an intermission menu. Here, units can be upgraded or optional parts installed, characters' stats and skills can be changed or upgraded, and other maintenance actions can be performed before the player continues on with the game.

Plot

Four Months has passed since the Inspector Conflict, the Earth Sphere is once again at peace. But the increased number of terrorists that appeared throughout the world caused by the Divine Crusaders escalates, and put economic strain on the colonies which leads to some colonies in rebelling again the Earth Sphere.
