Ironically, they only pulled the post-apocalyptic setting of Armageddon once- In D. In Z2, the apocalyptic setting is linked to Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, in V the radiation was mitigated by the dragons from Cross Ange (Ironic given the dinosaurs had a weakness to Getter Rays in the Toei anime and the original manga), and in T, things go off the rail early on before the time-skip ever comes up, mostly thanks to Shin Getter being brought out immediately.

Hmm. The switch to Armageddon likely affected the story for future SRW games from here on out, as demonstrated in V (world in ruin after the event and the constant war, starting with Space Battleship Yamato).

It was likely a matter of popularity and getting the voice actors together, although Z1, which had the Toei anime, had a glimpse into the future that heavily implied they would be using Shin Getter along with some version of Ryoma that was far more unhinged in appearance, implying they were planning the switch to Armageddon. Koji mentions seeing a Mazinger, and while Shin Mazinger was used for Z2, voice clips from Rubina heavily imply Mazinkaiser was planned to show up for Z2.

Right, the release date. And was very odd that it was bundled with other Toei anime until Z2.

Actually, it debuted in the Getter Robo Go manga- That honor belongs to Mazinkaiser. In addition, thanks to Shin vs Neo, HEATS wasn't the only time it had a proper soundtrack to itself. Two games, GC and R used Shin vs Neo, while D had Armageddon's debut in SRW- It's just that until Z2, Shin Getter Robo would regularly be bundled with the Toei Anime.

At the same time, it's battle BGM is HEATS in later installments instead of the original Getter Robo theme, the main theme of Getter Robo Armageddon when the storyline for that OVA series when it made it's debut, officially making the Shin Getter the first SRW original mecha to make the jump to television screens across Japan.

Started in the Classic Timeline- 4, F Final. It's just that in trailers and in this case, the series select, they have listed copyrights. That said, origins will vary between games on occasion. In its first appearance, it was Getter-1 undergoing a controlled nuclear style meltdown, mutating the machine to the point that it actively transformed without using Open Get. In the context of SRW W, Shin Getter was made by Dr Saotome in collaboration with Dr Juzo Kabuto in order to serve as a preventative measure should Mazinkaiser go berserk.

Licensing? Hm, I remember early SRW titles having it as an optional unit, a stronger version of the Getter. That being said can't wait for the remaining two.

Okay, to clear things up on Shin Getter Robo in the game- While the pilots are from the Toei anime, Shin Getter-2 and Shin Getter-3 are lifted straight from Armageddon and Shin Getter-1 is some mix of the manga and Shin vs Neo (Pulling out the Getter Tomahawk in two pieces before putting them together is straight from Shin vs Neo's Tomahawk Lancer). That said, Shin Getter's presence in the game is strictly as support to the Mazinkaiser plot. They just call it Getter Robo G and Shin Getter Robo (Manga) for the sake of licensing purposes as Alpha 3 has a similar mess.
