    I can’t help but wonder why this series has been overlooked in the west 0-0

      dub coming out..does that count?

    • British_Otaku

      The dub is coming and Viz have been releasing the manga for a while (maybe Volume 2 is out, I’ve got the first one).

      It seems to have a decent following in the west already, not that it is getting simultaneous game releases with Japan or the type of following that Dragon Ball, Death Note, Fullmetal and others have secured with time.

  • .:Raphællius:.

    This is just a big scheme! they will only cover the Sindria Arc, just so they can make a lot of money on a sequel that will only cover the Magnostadt Arc! let’s be honest, if they had waited a little longer they could have squeezed two Arcs on one cartridge. (they were probably working on this game since before they aired the first episode.)

    • British_Otaku

      I’ve only read the first volume of the manga and played the demo of the first game (it’s honestly becoming a guilty pleasure even if I was far from impressed), but I think it’s fine if they pace themselves like this.

      Sure it would be awesome to get content which is fresh from the manga like those other licensed games, but I would admire a game series which has a polished take on individual arcs much more than one that has a shallow understanding of later content… See Legacy of Goku 2/ Buu’s Fury vs One Piece Pirate Warriors.

      • .:Raphællius:.

        Fair enough @British_Otaku:disqus A game that is based on a long and/or ungoing anime series should indeed work with Arcs, but all i was saying is that they could’ve fit two arcs on the cardridge, since they are way past the Sindria Arc in Japan, plus there were Arcs before the Sindria arc… lol they already skip a few Arcs, might as well throw in a lil extra for the fans.

      • .:Raphællius:.

        OWWWWW wait!!! i did read that wrong… it seems this is the second game in the franchise, which means both games will most certainly not hit NA/EU in a long while.

        • British_Otaku

          Yep it’s the second game. I’m not so sure that we will wait that long for games to start hitting NA/EU… We got Dragon Ball games long before it aired properly in the States or UK and all it takes is a few European countries with a really strong following for One Piece for Europe to consistently get retail One Piece games even if the UK is far behind America or Australia in official releases.

          Being honest, Magi SHOULD have games arriving here before Attack on Titan but given how popular it is, it may be the other way around.

          I heard the anime skipped tons of stuff, but I expect the 3DS games to market themselves by taking content that the anime decided it didn’t have time for… When the manga or anime hits a major milestone, we will probably get those games which make us have that “Goku vs Raditz” feeling over and over…

          • .:Raphællius:.

            I Think it’ll get a later in 2014 release over here. They are just sniffing out some sort of fan base for this series, because the translated manga has just been released in the west. If it gains more popularity it will soon be followed up by Anime DVD box sets, and then eventually the games. (i hope) and hahahah how i long for that Goku VS. Raditz feeling again..
