    hmmmm, wait till summer to get free jp voice track, or be left out in april during release???? Yeah……….No, come April, a sacrficing a few months of my social life. True story. (o_o)#

  • Ayaka

    I guess this is turning into a good habit?

    Totally need to encourage developers doing it!

  • gamefreak86

    Between this and MH, so little time :(

  • isotrex

    Yay, more reason to save up for a PSV console.

  • HassanJamal

    English text? Im teared up between getting the Asian version early or getting the US version later.

    • TheExile285

      US release would be better so you can get the pre-order DLC and play online with US. I feel like voice chat was be essential in the MP of this game.

    • ZEROthefirst

      I would get the U.S. version, because one it will be a little cheaper, and two so you support the release of more Vita games in the West. We don’t need another PSP here (instead of every game being pirated it gets purchased from Asia).

      • HassanJamal

        That makes sense. Will wait then like everyone else.

  • see Tecmo Koei? If Sony can do it you can too :O
    Be smart on March 8 and do the same…

    • raymk

      Do what exactly? This isn’t dual audio and it only has one language spoken, its the same exact thing that tecmo is doing.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Ehh I’ll wait for the US version.

  • almostautumn

    I doubt the US DLC will be applicable to this version, so I will wait.
    Sure hope they keep Japanese voice-overs as an option in NA though!

    • Relytgninroht

      It’s included for free as one of the pre-order bonuses, but if you don’t pre-order, you’ll have to buy it as a separate DLC.

  • Demeanor

    By English text you mean a proper, high-quality translation or Chaos Code’s horrible Engrish? (tho the game is fun XD)

  • Oltheros

    devs and publishers doing this – you are awesome

  • Istillduno

    Sweet, so cheaper than buying it in England and buyable without supporting dodgey DLC practices, looks like my Vita shall have a game when I finally get around to buying one.

    Tbh the Engrish in chaos code wasn’t even too bad, a few errors but readable and understandable, not like an unreadable machine translation or anything.
