    So…only in Europe huh?

    • TheExile285

      Probably Europe first and then NA :V

      • Highasthesky

        I hope so, i need this demo to confirm if i’m going to buy this game =(

        • Thrasher429

          Could you not just make a Europe PSN account or do you only have an Xbox?

          • Monterossa

            If we play the European demo then our save data won’t transfer to NA full game.

          • Thrasher429

            Well yeah but you will at least get an idea how the game plays and decide whether you want it.

    Man, Namco doesn’t even try to hide there favoritism towards Europe xD

    • fairysun

      I think it’s because many European countries are exposed and generally more positive to Anime than USA.
      Saint Seiya, Dragon Ball, Naruto, Bleach and One Piece are very popular in Europe. In US, we only know Dragon Ball and Naruto (and probably a little bit of Bleach).

      • SerendipityX

        Its mostly more about sales than being exposed. Most of those anime should have been popular in US. One Piece and Saint Seiya for example should be far more popular than it is now but most of them were drowned out by very odd decisions in licensing.

        • Thrasher429

          Like 4Kids. I still don’t understand why anybody would have allowed them to license anything

          • ヴァルラシュ

            in their defense, they did an amazing job with pokemon

          • It is funny, no? Only Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! were their best and generally accepted dubs so far. Although, now Konami owns 4kids. And I don’t know what happened to them afterwards.

      • Kaihedgie

        ” In US, we only know Dragon Ball and Naruto”
        And Bleach. And Gundam. And One Piece. And Hellsing…hell, anything that Toonami is showcasing at this very moment

        • Only for those that stay up till the sun goes out. And only once a week. And this doesn’t include all of the US. The difference is that Europe can watch Anime on weekdays (and on a more frequent rate) on TV than what the US channels allow. Meaning, there is more support to Japanese Media over there than over in the US.

          And yes, watching Anime over the internet doesn’t contribute to Mass Japanese Media support than you’d think, especially from a business point of view. Well, yeah, it grows awareness to those who know how to look for it, but it’s not lucrative to original producers and companies.

          Say, maybe I did missed something. Is there another channel that airs Anime shows, aside from Cartoon Network’s [Adult Swim] time block with Toonami nowadays?

          • Kaihedgie

            Yu-Gi-Oh ZEXAL, Beyblade, Tenkai Knights, Digimon Fusion

          • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

            theres the FUNimation channel on u-verse thats about all I’ve seen.

  • Can’t wait to give this a go.
