    Go Go Power Famitsu!!!! XD lol I laughed so much at the V-Jump Bulleta. I think that’s the most clever one.

    • Joanna

      Yeah, V-Jump Bulleta is one of more clever ones. Although I think Shounen Jump’s hook, which is reminiscent of pirate hook, is pretty clever too because they have a pirate mascot. :3

    Another day, another PSP2:I update, another slap to the face on the western audience.

      Why? Is not like the game has little chance of coming here, all PSO/U games have been released here before.

        If you’ve seen all the stuff they put in PSP2:I, it’ll take a lot a time to take out all this content that belongs only in Japan just to distribute this expansion. Valkyria Chronicles and KFC I can see that, but Vocaloid, Famitsu, V-Jump. and every other niche cameo? This game doesn’t have a chance.

          But we got the Miku and Fate stuff on PSP2 I dunno..

            Hmm, I must not have been very far in PSP2. :/

            You don’t need to get far, they’re available via the visiphone.

          Zettai Hero Portable had niche cameos but it manages the transition fine. We’ll see about this :(

      i agree. due to multiple licenses and such it’s really hard to localize something that is published by multiple companies.

      think of it as Super Robot Wars coming to the west. very unlikely though i am impressed with Tatsunoko vs Capcom. i heard it was a pain for Tatsunoko localizing some of it’s characters due to companies like Warner Bros owning some of them.

    Dreamcast own all.

  • Code

    rar, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an obnoxiously large and shiny sword ever xpx;

  • alundra311

    Polytan knuckle FTW.

  • holyPaladin

    Famitsu sword looks really cool

    I can just see everyone going for the Polytan stuff because “Dawwwwww its so darn cute”.

    Personally I want the Dreamcast Grenade :D
