    I know October-November is considered the “fall deluge”, but it really begins for me in August (Dragon’s Crown, Xillia)… and that’s not even counting all the 3DS games I have bought recently. >_>

  • Taylor Davis

    Man, I can’t wait to play Dragon crown. The good thing is, its coming out next month. (I’m not getting xillia because I have the Japanese, maybe one day I’ll pick the english version.) So many games are coming!

  • z_merquise

    So excited for Dragon’s Crown.

    Though the game did receive a huge amount of hype and positive gameplay impressions, I’m still nervous on how this game would fare in sales. All I wanted is to see a big seller for Vanillaware.

  • Ni

    i totally forgot about xblaze ):

  • Silent-Hal

    Alright Japan, if I hear even one spoiler before the NA/EU release of AA5… BAM. Godzilla.

  • Herok♞

    Looks like a pretty good week can’t wait to see sales next week

  • DesmaX

    Oh, they’re going to release ZoE HD separately on PSN? Cool

  • Alestaos

    Im still unsure of what dragon crown is. Is it just a dungeon crawler or is it a rpg with a story. Can you chose a class etc etc. I want it cause the art looks amazing but i need to know what it is before i do

    • Jonathan Tse

      it’s a beat-em-up RPG, like Dungeons and Dragons: Shadows over Mysteria. you can choose between the 6 characters, each of which has their own class. there’s a story, but obviously I don’t know if it’s a deep story or not.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    I have to admit, I’m kind of nervous about how AA5 is going to do. I really hope that it will do well, but the poor performance by AAI2 and PLvs.AA doesn’t instill me with confidence. Then again, those were spinoffs, whereas this is a mainline title.

    Anyway, I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

    • malek86

      I’m sure it will do well. There’s been a lot of hype for this game. The previous spin-offs were either too off there, with Professor Layton being a weird match, or developed on a platform that, by that point, was starting to lose steam.

    • Testsubject909

      I would buy AA5 day 1 if it was available on retail. I don’t own a 3DS yet and the game itself is far cheaper to purchase then a 3DS, so I can afford purchasing the game long prior to purchasing the 3DS in question.

      • Tom_Phoenix

        Same. This is exactly why I’m hoping they will change their minds and do a physical release. I wish to support the game, but as long as it’s eShop-only, there is nothing I can do.

  • JunHoward

    Nippon Ichi, localization for the Witch and hundred knights NAO!!!

  • Kevin Schwarz

    Screw everything else, for me, it’s Dragon’s Crown this year!
