    Lack of sleep is getting to me. Read this as Makai Wars at first lol.

    • AkuLord3

      Oh How i wish…come on NIS, You know you want to!. Just wait, Makai Wars for the Ps4 then i’ll definitely get one soon

  • JonathanisPrimus

    I was going to say that it was a big sign of confidence in the property to develop a game before it even starts, but then I saw Free To Play.

    • TheExile285

      lol same. killed any and all interest

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      As if that makes a difference when it’s japanese

      • TheExile285

        retail games can be imported (still waiting for GE2)

        free to plays however…………

        its not like game had any chance of localization :/

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          You can import moblie games to lol, you don’t even need to jail break them as long as you can make a japanese itunes account. The same way you have to make a japanese psn account to get their extra goodies.

          • Kayseur

            It’s not that easy and convenient on PS Vita, though. Not everyone want to format their console each time they switch.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Well i completely understand that i only switch when there’s a new demo out and even then it takes me a while to find the energy to deal with the crap.
            but that has nothing to do with being able to easily create a japanese itunes account and download games with ease and then being able to switch back to your regular account just by logging into and still being allowed to play it despite different country account

          • Kayseur

            For sure. But I was talking about the Vita version actually, since that’s what was in the news’ title. And since I don’t know whether it’ll be the same game or not.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Ahh i see well worse comes to worse you can just stay away from any dlc news if you import.

  • The character design is beautiful. Looking forward to the anime =^_^=

    Also, Gainax is involved =)

  • Kami nii

    Japan always gets the good stuff :( With the localization of Conception 2 by Atlus I hope for other more localization plans God Eater 2 please?

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Gainax bounce. Waiting on Panty & Stocking 2nd season….that will never come since Gainax doesn’t do second seasons.

    • Spirit Macardi

      Maybe years down the road they’ll make a Rebuild of Panty and Stocking film series.

    • WingsOfEternity

      iirc They don’t have the resources to make a proper sequel because most of the former PSG/TTGL team is working under Trigger. Kill la Kill is pretty much the spiritual successor to said series.

    • They did a second season to Mahoromatic.

      Still waiting on that Abenobashi special Yamaga promised years ago, though.

  • Spirit Macardi

    A new anime series by Gainax?

    Who wants to take a wager on when they’ll blow their budget for this one? x3

    • Erikdayo

      Eh. This isn’t the GAINAX we used to know. They don’t make anything worth watching anymore.

    • FlyingPony

      Gainax? I really pissed at them with Panty and Stocking ending.. What a cliff hanger, and annoying way to end the great series!

  • Pdugna

    I know its F2P and all but man all these new Vita Games announced…they just keep coming…


    hmm..I can’t get hyped because the new Gainax Staff have to grind alot to be on the same level of the old Gainax Staff

  • Minos

    And the “Gainax ending” will be that everything was a phone game!

  • Does Gainax even have any of its major figures left anymore? It’s like the Squaresoft of anime.

  • leingod

    Everything Vita is good for me. Bad thing is, most of these never get localized :(

    This seems to be related:

    The artbook came out in October and is still available from Also, Kinokuniya Los Angeles has a bunch of these as well.
