    Another fun beat-em-up action game for the Vita! I cant wait!

  • DEnM

    Most likely will buy this, despite having imported the Special Edition when it came out in Japan.

    • NeoStrayCat

      Well, though the game itself was just only a download code inside the game case, nice extras too in the LE, but hey, at least now its in English and stuff.

  • KuroNathan

    Nice! I’ll definitely get this when it comes out

  • The trailer mentioned multiplayer–will that be online?

    Didn’t hear much about this game before, but it looks pretty fun. I might pick it up when it comes out.

    • NeoStrayCat

      Well, there was online multi on the 360 version, dunno how it works in Vita, unless its the same in console games. But hey, its fun as it is, lol. :3

  • Rintarou

    Kurisu costs half the game? I mean I would’ve bought her if she was the same price as the full game but damn.

    • This is the choice of Steins;Gate…

      • Darkwing7

        there is only one choice and that is to buy the dlc. Kurisu is my everything

        • Spider-Man

          She’s MY waifu.

          • Darkwing7

            xD spidey you needa protect us from goblin, go spin ur webs else where :D

          • Spider-man x Kurisu…

            I ship it.

          • Land of Green Pasture

            Kurisu entangled in white spider web? SOLD

    • Vesperion

      It looks like the same prices they had on XBL

      • Rintarou

        Oh I didn’t have a 360 anymore when it came out so I never bothered to see how much it was then. :<

        • Vesperion

          My bad the game was $10. The Kurisu DLC was $5

  • NyaBoy

    Like M. Bison said “Yes, yes !”

    I was making strange pose while reading this news.

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    5 euros to play as kurisu?!

    • NyaBoy

      But, but… Kurisu have futur gadget “Bit Particle Cannon” !!!

  • Seraph

    Looks fun. Going to have to definitely pick this up.

  • Roberto

    oh Kurisu my dear why you have to be so expensive

    • Darkwing7

      Because its Kurisu xD

    • Land of Green Pasture

      srsly Kurisu worth more than that…

      • Darkwing7

        xD shes worth half of the game you bought lol, but either way im picking her up day 1 and then making a perler bead spirte out of her

  • Jesse Torres

    This is a download only game right?
    I plan on getting it, i’m new to the series.

    • NeoStrayCat

      Yes, this is originally a Download/Digital game, even if the Import “Retail” Limited Edition is just a download code (with some nice physical/digital extras on the side), so yeah, if you’re new to it, have a good time with it. :3

  • Didn’t know about this game until now but it looks like a lot of fun. $12 isn’t bad at all so i’d buy this day 1, hopefully good sales would convince 5pb to bring more games to the West.

    • NeoStrayCat

      More is good! :3

  • tonyp1987

    It reminds me of Scott pilgrim vs the world on ps3

  • Genjo

    i hope this works on Vita T.V aka playstation T.V x.x

    • Maria Garcia

      japanese version works

      • Genjo

        AWESOME thanks <3

  • DivinePhoenix69

    Seems like a pretty fun game, plus i’m in the mood for a beat-em up after playing Muramasa:Rebirth so i’ll probably be downloading this along with getting The Last Of Us Remastered since they are both released on the same day.

    Also dat I Fight Dragons music!

  • Nate

    This sure was quit,e now it’s coming out. I have this game on 360. I bought it day one. It was fun playing through once. It’s got a good technical system for a beat em up. It’s great playing co op with too. Great fit for vita imo.

  • GameBruh

    This or Rogue Legacy? Decisions, decisions…

    • Jimmy Bump

      Personally I would chose this because Rogue Legacy can go down to like 3.75 when its on sale this might not ever go on sale.

  • z_merquise

    Game looked fun. More 2D beat-em-ups are always nice.

    • buddyluv324

      Right? After playing Dragon’s Crown ( and still playing it today) and the upcoming Akiba’s Trip, I say bring on the beat-em-ups!

  • if this game has juggle system or something similar, I might get it!

  • Nu Blitz

    This game was awesome on xbox glad I can play it on the now

  • Qunton C.

    Why is it more expensive than the identical 360 version? Even Kurisu is more expensive

    • NeoStrayCat

      I wouldn’t say inflation or anything, but that’s the same price also in the JP PSN version (+tax or w/e), I dunno if its justifiable in any way, but hey, 1 or 2 dollars more won’t hurt though.

      The game is good within its own right, but now waiting on that PS4 version one of these days.

  • Guest

    Hmm, hoping it has online co-op. Btw, wasn’t there a fuzz about the VITA having (Sony) exclusive characters?

    • Dee Ealey

      yes. it has online co-op

  • Hmm, hoping it has online co-op. Btw, wasn’t there a fuzz about the VITA having (Sony) exclusive characters?

    • NeoStrayCat

      Yes, there will still be online matchmaking, but nope on the character thing, they said it be available across all versions (360, Vita, and then upcoming PS4 version), I think, problem is, what’s taking them long to add them though. >_>

  • Prinny Dood

    Yes! Im soo getting it dood!^^

  • Kornelious

    Wow, completely forgot about this one, and I didn’t expect it to be release….I guess i know where that extra money in my check is going too :D

    And I hope that 5bp is still “Gauging” a localization for Phantom Breaker: Extra…..

  • The Watcher

    Great great title, felt pretty good on xbla and probably even better on vita.

  • Learii

    I wish there a ps3 version too
