    I was waiting to hear more about this game since the western release was confirmed months ago. Can’t wait to pick it up.

    • Joshua Myers

      is it ps3 or psp or vita?

      • Ladius

        It’s a PS3 game released digitally in the western markets.

    • Ladius

      Agreed, I’m really looking forward to it too.

  • Firion Hope

    I love me a good brawler, I’m excited

  • Tiredman

    Depends for me on whether or not it is digital only, and if it is, the price. I don’t spend over $20 digital on anything, and for that price I expect one heck of a game. I missed out on two of NIS’s games due to digital only and way too high a price.

    If the price is right according to how it is released, then consider it bought.

    • Zonic505

      It’s digital/PSN only. & yeah, wanna hear a price on it as well, since I had some interest in this, but then heard negative opinions about it from importers.

      • Tiredman

        I don’t really listen to negative opinions. I just watch youtube videos about it, and if it looks fun, I go for it. Just like with super hero moves I so enjoy, too many of the things I like gets bad reviews, and if I listened to them, I wouldn’t of had anywhere near as much fun in life as I have.

  • Jettythesunfish

    Ah, too bad this isn’t on the Vita D:

    • Hau To

      I would have love this to be on the Vita as well!

  • MrTyrant

    How good is this game? have anyone tried the japanese version?

  • Oh cool, can’t wait. I’m expecting it’ll be like $30 at the most, all things considering. … But $20 might be doable, too.

  • Kornelious

    This is one of the Digital only games that I’m actually looking forward to, along with Sword Art Online and Rankos Tsukigimes Longest Day (Though I might just import that) It looks off the walls fun! (Though it would be even better if it was on Vita as well :D)

    • God

      Don’t buy Ranko, it’s not worth the money, it’s short (about 2 hours long) and it doesn’t make sense, just watch gameplay online.

      • Jumbokitty724


        • God

          Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day

          • Kornelious

            Yeesh, no one seems to like this game, and I’m hearing the same things (The story doesn’t make since, it’s really short, It’s to expensive)…..But I really want to like it….it looks cool…and has cool designs….and i like physicals…..Guess I’ll have to make my choice soon -_-

          • God

            I liked the design too, for the 2 hours of gameplay it had…

      • SupaPhly

        listen to this man, you can even 100% the game in 3 hours

      • Alex Sargeant

        From start to finish it took a single hour here. Would’ve been fine if it was priced like Liberation Maiden or Crimson Shroud.

        It was not in the UK.

      • DyLaN

        Does the bundled shorts justify the price though, I’m curious?

        • God


      • Ash_Riot

        A Suda51 game that has confused even God. ]

        Suda51> God – confirmed

        • God

          It wasn’t confusing, it just didn’t make any sense, even the developers admited it…
          Relevant: God, 3 letters… HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED!

  • FTM

    This is great; been interested in this.
    From what I hear though, it’s a pretty slim title. If it launches at $50 I’ll probably be day-1.

    EDIT: Missed the ‘digital-only’ part— yeah, I’ll do $30 max.

    • Ladius

      NISA has always priced its digital-only games reasonably, I doubt this will have a 50$ price tag.

  • Mind0105A

    Wow this game looks fun.

  • Learii

    how much will this be?

  • Slickyslacker

    Eh. I’m just waiting for Hotaru no Nikki, which I’m importing.

  • Yay~! I know this game didn’t do great (in any regard, it seemed), but I really want to play it anyway. ^u^;

    • leingod

      It didn’t? I wonder why? It looks fun and gorgeous.

      • I think reviews are a part of it; I don’t think its Famitsu review was that good certainly (if I remember correctly). But I agree~.

  • Radprofile

    This game have multiplayer?

    • Wappuli

  • Demeanor

    Will get :) I have a thing for fighting maidens.

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. Interesting. Most of what I’ve heard about it says that the actual gameplay was hit and miss, even if it looked really charming. Wonder what the western reception will look like…

  • Haganeren

    I have heard this game was really really bad… I wonder if it will not damage Nippon Ichi reputation… Or maybe i just heard wrong and this game is not THAT bad.

  • Hector Velar

    my body and wallet are ready!

  • SlickRoach

    I nearly forgot about this game. I heard it wasn’t too popularly received, but the same was said for Witch & the Hundred Knight and I enjoyed that.

  • Vash bane

    o.o I forgot all about this game thanks for the heads up :D

  • Kitestwinblades

    Cant help but compare Child of Light’s main character to this one. Looking Forward to Trying this out soon. With so many download only titles coming out lately, Its probably time to get a bigger hard drive.
