    I really hope they make The Lost Canvas game in the future. That would be my top preorder.

      Not that big a fan of that since it doesnt use the original artist. I’d rather they do the other arcs first (Poseidon, Hades).

      • Crimson_Cloud

        Shame, people sometimes form an opinion based on the fact if the series is cannon or not, regardless if it’s is enjoyable or not. In this case, it’s the different artist. And it’s even more insulting to them when something is better then original. We can argue day and night which is better but it still doesn’t change the fact that The Lost Canvas is one of the better shonen mangas around today, from every aspect of that genre. Oh, and thank God there isn’t that ” I’ve seen your technique now it won’t work on me second time…”

          First off, the creator still oversees it he just uses a different artist other than himself.

          Second, like I said, I’d rather they NOT skip important arcs that come after this arc in this game like they did with the PS2 games. I didn’t say they shouldn’t do it; I just said they shouldn’t skip these to do it. My point makes sense; more so then yours for the sake of continuation and consistency.

    The gameplay trailers so far look nice (except no sound, guess they would go w/ the new cast again), each char’s moves very reminiscent of the show.. The LE is expensive, I wonder how nice the figure is, is it a Cloth Myth?  I alrdy pre-ordered the movie blu-ray set in Nov.. and w/ some Cloth Myth EX figures, my wallet is drained :(…

    I really need to get this Aries Mu EX figure, so much more posable than the regular ver.. but it’s pre-sold out on AmiAmi..

    Hopefully they would have Araki Shingo/Himeno Michi (or Chino Kyouko) illustrate the cover art too, or the in-game portraits if any..

    too bad its won’t come to NA

    just like 2nd Robot Wars OG doubt they’ll make release it overseas :(

  • Since the PS3 will play any game, either PAL, NTSC-J or NTSC, I will definitely get this!!!! I ordered Ratchet and Clank Quest for Booty from Australia, and although it is PAL and region 3, it did play perfectly on my region 1 American PS3. So this is good news! Cant wait to play this!!!
