    YES! I”M SO IN THERE!

    I’ve been wanting to play this again since I’ve sold everything related to Xbox. Good thing I have a Vita!! ^_^

    THANKS MAGES!!

  • HououinKyouma

    Wooow, awesome.

  • Prinny Dood

    I wish I knew japanese that way I wonldnt have to wait 1 or 2 years play

    • Zak Ledward

      Japanese required to play beat ‘em up, what?

      Honestly, there’s little to no reason that language should be a barrier in enjoying this game. Everything is the same as it was for the xbox360 version so you can safely assume that every skill, name, and whatever else, is exactly the same. Other than importing costs or JPN exclusive DLC, there shouldn’t be anything barring you from getting the full ride, even if it is released in Japan first.

      • Wappuli

        Well this game has some systems of its own and they are told in the “how to play” section only without tutorial, so if you want to read that then you’ll need to how to read it, but I’m sure they can be found from the net.
        Only other part where you might need Japanese for this is skill names, but yea, they most likely the same as they were for the X360-version so they can be found from the net easily too.

        But then again, everything is translated already and the X360-version was released simultaneously everywhere, so I don’t think there should be much wait for this either if they are thinking about localizing it.

      • Prinny Dood

        I dont have an xbox, but I was really talking about the other games I want to play that are exclusive to japan at the moment

  • Onizuka Gio Hikari

    I played the demo at a friends house and I absolutely loved it! This is such good news! and it’s a retail release def buying the LE :D

  • Wappuli

    Is it still not known who the new quest-character for the Vita-version is?

    • NeoStrayCat

      Didn’t you already posted before mentioning that “Frau Koujiro” might be the added character in the Vita port anyways in that one screenshot? (Or maybe PS4 ver, I dunno). >_>

      • Wappuli

        Yes, that screenshot was for PS4-version.
        Even there I was just pondering on if Frau is the new character solely for that version or for Vita aswell.

        • NeoStrayCat

          Not only that, but the 360 port isn’t gonna be left behind as well, at least they’ll probably add her in there too.

        • 324234

          With both Frau and Kurisu, we’re missing the Chaos;Head representatitive: Rimi.

  • Aristides

    Any chance for a western release? Was the 360 ver even localized?

    • leingod

      I believe it was.

      • Aristides

        Well i hope they localize the Vita version too if someone already has the license and translated the text.

        • NeoStrayCat

          Well, the 360 port already had English and everything, hope its the same in the Vita port.

  • leingod

    I’d rather have the actual fighting game, but hey.

    • NeoStrayCat

      You can actually Import PB:Extra for either console (PS3/360), and play them anyways, but yeah, a Vita port of the 1v1 fighter would be nice.

  • Slayven19

    Still no ps3 game…oh well.

    • NeoStrayCat

      Actuall, PB: Extra (1v1 fighter) is on PS3, but you gotta import it, but PB: BattleGrounds-Overdrive will be on the PS4 coming soon.

  • mike dickson

    in NA right ? *sees japan icon * sigh god damn it

    • 324234

      The 360 version was released in the US on the same day, so I wouldn’t worry.

      • mike dickson

        but i dont have a 360 its a sin if i use it
