    Disclaimer: There is no snowboarding in the game.


      I will import the Vita version if necessary, clearly looking forward to this :D

        Hell, I’m sure this is the first game in the series that lets you jump . . .

        It does look pretty amazing though.

        • True, the jumping is indeed a very elegant act :D

    • Testsubject909

      But is there still bullying singular creatures by bringing in your crew of obviously overpowered characters since they’re not taking a single scratch from an of it’s attack for the sole purpose of killing it for mass loot and exp?

      I keed, I keed… But I am sad there’s no snowboarding. It looks awesome.

    Hey guys ! are they some people interested in creating a guild ? We can collect and gather information while we are waiting for the western release( I’m French ).

    • Testsubject909

      Quebecois ici, alors je parle francais aussi.

      In any case. I would certainly be interested in making or spearheading my own guild. That or joining whatever guild ends up being the general Siliconera guild.

      • Zakai

        let’s talk about it, if u have twitter u can add me for a first contact. My nickname is Zakaima.

  • Seven of The Scions

    only japanese version for vita?

    • Marcelo Henrique Chaves

      It will get localized, but so far they don’t have a release date confirmed.
      But i read it would be in Q1 2013.
      US and EU region will share same server.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        I don’t know where everyone is getting the information saying the vita version is coming the PC version is coming they haven’t said a thing about the vita one.

        • nick_54g

          i would think if they locaolize the pc version why not the vita one too? would have most of the same text and stuff

          • Luna Kazemaru

            there are major issues that would stop that from happening that being internet connections and the fact how handhelds aren’t really in high demand in the west. Internet connections alone would be the main factor.

      • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

        I don’t recall them ever saying that the PSV version will be localized. I’d appreciate a source proving me wrong~.

        • Marcelo Henrique Chaves

          Well yeah, that was a complete lack of attention of my part.
          I didn’t read it too carefully and started imagining things.
          I apologize for the misleading here.

  • Going to be sooooo sweet! =^_^=

  • Cephrien

    Geeaaawwd I can’t wait.
    I even signed up for the Vita beta. I SUPERLY HOPE I GET IN.

  • SirTeffy

    REEEEeeeeeeally hope SEGA doesn’t drop the ball on localizing the Vita version too… with the ships being International I don’t see why they WOULDN’T since US Players can play on a cross-play ship, but I can see them being like NO VITA VERSION FOR YOU anyway because this is SEGA…

    • Luna Kazemaru

      Ships are not international unless you mean NA/EU because Japan will have their own server.

    • Edzo

      i fully expect them to cancel the vita version for the west.

  • Kevin Lor

    Anyone knows if the Vita version can be play offline? If it can i might pick up a Vita just for this game

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      No, it can’t. I’m pretty sure this game requires a permanent online connection~.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      PSO2 is online only.

  • xavier axol

    oh man!, and i’m not living in japan. now the question is, will the sega ever localize (the vita version of) this game or will it be just another valkyria chronicles situation here? i can bet that the pc version will no doubt come, but i can’t say the same for the vita version. i’m sure that sega would at least do the wait and see approach, if we can see some positive numbers of vita units sold this holiday season for both here in the u.s. and europe. then may be there is a chance, eiher that or sony could step up and make a deal with sega. sony’s marketing division has been doing a good job (at least better than before) with making deals with third parties companies like ubisoft and 2k, sooo…. why not sega?.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      here is the thing VC is a single player game PSO2 is an online only MMO that requires online connection.

      • xavier axol

        yes, i know the difference. but that’s why i think it would be harder for sega to bring this over, at least that seems to be the case for the vita version. sega is not in a good position to lose more money, so as a gamer is heartbreaking . though i still hold on to hope, that’s why i visit their forums and give suggestions. in this situation, what sega needs is for the vita to have a bigger base. it might be a free mmo, but if it doesn’t have a following then it wouldn’t make a profit. that’s why i mention the importance of the vita units sells and sony trying to cut a deal with them.

    • Elvick

      Well they already confirmed the PC version was being localized awhile ago.

      I don’t see why they wouldn’t, I mean surely it couldn’t cost much since they’ll have already localized the PC version. Just use that for the Vita version, put it out and you’ll get more players.

      Like me, who has no interest in the game on PC, but would play on PS Vita.

  • xavier axol

    well… my vita is ready!, only problem is. i’m living on the wrong side of the hemisphere.

    • Syn

      You an me both buddy

  • Pokahontas McGuigan


  • Enigma_XIV

    All of my Vita based want

  • d19xx

    Damn it Sega, don’t make us wait another year for an English release!

  • eilegz

    omg that phantasy star portable 2 song in the end ;o; sigh sega never released the new version of psp2 here =/

    oh well this its the “killer” game that vita owners its waiting :D hope this do well

  • I’m sorry but that PSO2 theme made the trailer epic in the second promo when he said PSVITA hahaha.
