  • Awesome, Can’t Wait!

  • I don’t  recall a PS3 version of 2017.

       It was 360 only.

  • Oh wow this is great!

  • $3587643

    Goody. Time for some nostalgic bug blasting. Important question though, will they use the same dub from the original>

    This game looks hilariously fun.

    So many games to look forward to when I get my Vita.

  • Oh wow. Vita is getting everything localized even though it’s selling terribly worldwide. I guess there’s more hope for Shinovi Versus then Burst at this point. Any Senran Kagura is fine with me now.

    That’s unexpected. I didn’t think it would leave Japan. I’m looking forward to it. I haven’t played 3, but I imported the English European version of 2. It was a great game. I’m glad they added Palewing back. She’s the best part of 2.

    I just bought this game from Hong Kong last night….and I will happily buy it when it comes out in North America as well :D

  • EDF! EDF! EDF!

    Pretty impressive Vita is getting all these titles into NA. Not that any of them would sell or anything, but I’ll make sure to pick up a copy.

  • Oh heck yeah, I gotta grab this whenever I get a Vita.
    I hope D3 is also considering God Eater 2, I would support them even more.

  • Loving how that Vita library is growing and growing…

  • sherimae1324

    is AMERICA’S DEFENSE FORCE ready for this?

  • Juuu

    Thank you based D3! This is one I’ve been waiting for! I think the fast, mission-based gameplay will work wonders on a portable system. So ready to go kill some giant ants and spiders with my friends! :P

  • An easy blind buy once I know the release date!
