    Just announced for Spain? That’s kinda random but it’s still great that the game IS coming over in other languages.

  • not the strangest news i’ve read today

  • zferolie

    What was the call on this game? I know it looked beautiful, but I don’t know how it played in the finished product, and what people thought of it…

    • From what I’ve heard it’s not amazing.

    • From what I read, it was considered an average game with a gimmick. The graphics were so-so, the battles too easy and a bit long, the story uninteresting. The good points were that it was supposedly charming with a nice mood, fun characters, and an easy to understand battle system.

    • Just what I catched on Twitter when it was released, but it’s apparently mediocre to really bad. Game seemed to have no appeal at all and was pretty bland.

      • Ereek

        I read this as well.

        There’s a review of it over at Japanator, if you trust them.

        • Yeah Elliot’s tweets and then the Japanator post are where I got the informations about the game. I trust that man a lot~ :P

      • Guest

        I have the game and and am currently playing through it. Really the only the thing the game has going for it are its anime-style visuals if such appeal to you (as they do to me) and some of the characters and dialogue can be interesting/funny/entertaining at times. But other than that, the game is indeed pretty bland.

        The story is generally uninteresting, the quest-based gameplay isn’t all that entertaining, the field exploration is quite dull/boring and the battle system overall sucks in my opinion.

    • LynxAmali

      Not amazing but not too terrible.

      Had a lot of ambition behind but it fell through, possibly due to lack of budget. At least, that’s what it felt like.

      It was enjoyable though, IMO.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      The game is not bad at all but it just failed to reach the promise they make.(The best Jrpg lol.)
      If the actually intent to expand and further upgrade this game, i am sure this game can do much better.^_^

    • British_Otaku

      Seems to be decent enough, but not one of the definitive RPGs ever.

      There is a video review below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4o24BRXtJ8&feature=g-all-u

      In short,the 2D animation style (watch the video) looks really nice but it is let down by the lip sync, repetition, limited angles and weak backgrounds. The combat is real time and seems good, though the foe variety isn’t high enough to avoid tedium. He has some words on the story too.

  • ¡Enbuenahora! Really nice!

  • chibisake

    You are welcome guys, i’m a big fan of your awesome daily work! and thanks for the mention, i really appreciate it, you are awesome!

    Namco Bandai Ibérica distributes in Spain the games localized by NISA (The press note mention the american site of NISA, so I think that the game is being localized by NIS America). In Europe (except Spain) Tecmo Koei usually distributes NISA Games.

    Sorry, I know my english is not perfect, but I’m doing my best :)

    • Your English is fine, man. Thanks for the info.

    • David García Abril

      Enhorabuena por la exclusiva, paisano. XD

      • Prithivi

        Vaya, ¡más españoles por aquí! ¡qué curioso y agradable al mismo tiempo! =D

    • Thanks for the heads up. Much appreciated. :)

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      O.o I never knew Siliconera had so diverse demographics of gamer here.^_^
      Well, your english is great anyway. Hope to see you keep posting here.^_^

  • Heh, I suppose this is going to be NISA’s announcement this afternoon?

  • Luna Kazemaru
  • rorschacht

    Damn namco iberica ,Persona 4, Xillia and now this…..I DONT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY ;_;

  • Yes! It has begun! =^_^=

  • Aristides

    Yeah! Thank god I was raised bilingual. I’ll import if there’s no there option (but I’ll obviously wait for the domestic version lol)

  • David García Abril



    Now, seriously, guys, if it’s coming to Spain, you can bet your ass it’s coming to the rest of Western Europe too.

    Spain is the fourth biggest market in Europe and the seventh-eigth biggest in the world. That means that there are another six-seven countries that will get it.

    As a matter of fact, when they localize games for Western Europe it’s always in the “EFIGS” package: English (normally the American version, although there are companies that make British English), French, Italian, German and Spanish.

    Cases of localized games that feature ONLY ONE of those languages (aside from English, naturally) are EXTREMELY rare. And I seriously doubt this will be one of them.

    • Raharu95

      Tales of Vesperia was one of those Rare games, if I remember correctly, Right?

      • I think he means European games localized to exactly one non-English language, from a different language origin. The practice I’m describing is almost unheard of. Several old Dragon Ball games were translated from Japanese direct to French.

  • DesmaX

    Oh, NISA and Namco Bandai, together? Hope I’ll see more of this


  • Nitraion

    NISA and NAMDAI together?!
    okay let see my “wanted localize list”

  • Yeah this is cool, I’m sure US news will follow soon for me.

  • Ooh Bee

    Sweet. At least I know it’s coming for one language I understand. Even if it doesn’t make it to the US, I can get this version.

  • Demeanor

    I’m happy for Spain ^ ^ and wondering about the rest of eu, including my country… :P

  • HarryHodd

    Looking forward to this. PS3 is still going strong with Jrpgs in the west. :)

  • Solomon_Kano

    I’m completely forgot about this game. Considering NISA’s involvement here, US release is assured.

  • Prithivi

    That was unexpected!
    Good news for English speakers too since I’m pretty sure the game will be in English (sadly, we rarely get low-budet jRPGs translated into spanish -what the hell, Square-Enix didn’t even bother to translate Kingdom Hearts 3D). So be angels and import it from Spain so you help our economy! :p

    • Sylveria

      Hey if it gets released in English and isn’t a PSN only and doesn’t get a US release, I’d be happy to import it.. if it’s good. Certainly my taste in art style. Need to make sure I have a hefty PS3 backlog since the PS4 is looking to be a huge pile of bullshit and chips.

  • FetusZero

    Now bring it to North America! ..or make the release in Spain in English so I can import it :p

  • neo_firenze

    We’ve already heard separately from both Namco Bandai and Imageepoch that they were planning an English western release:


    So it was already a pretty safe bet, but still nice to see more momentum building. Can’t help but think that it’s pretty good timing for Namco Bandai, in the wake of a ton of good press for Ni no Kuni and some positive buzz for another highly anime styled JRPG.

  • biskmater

    Spain, huh? sounds like a random place to start at, but hey, all the better the Spanish gamers.

  • Ceci “Ruzuzu” Kiyomizu

    I’ve been dying to get my hands on this.
    Glad at least it’s coming out somewhere besides Japan.

  • Hans Satori

    Just Spain? They better release it in rest of europe or i will be pissed.

  • If this is being published by Namco Bandai Iberia, then by definition it would mean the game would see a released in Portugal as well, correct? And not just Spain :)

    I’m totally okay with this, ahah!

  • I hope they may cooperate to localize 2nd Super Robot Wars Original Generation for the PS3.
