    wtf….do want

  • kdashkula

    I think this game might be similar to NAMCO v.s. CAPCOM

    • Kobracon

      @kdashkula: Namco X Capcom. Not vs. Although a fighting game would’ve been interesting….but I guess its a little too soon after Marvel vs Capcom :P

  • whiteferrero

    Strat RPG? kinda reminds me of that game from NIS. Chaos something… or rather… isn’t this super robot wars all over again?

  • Malcolm Reynolds

    Why oh why on the 3DS?
    I’ll still buy it but I truly hate buying games on an inferior system.
    Mehhhhhh.

    • Blades64

      @Malcolm Reynolds: You sound VERY intelligent!!! We should all take this guy’s advice!

    • Sal Romano

      @Malcolm Reynolds: A system is defined by its games. So I wouldn’t go calling 3DS inferior.

  • Rydak

    I didn’t think much about it at first, but these details make me interested.

  • howardmoonish

    Needs Sonic and Tails and then I’ll buy it.

  • Malcolm Reynolds

    @Blades64:

    Oh noes…..lets fling personal insults at a multiconsole owner b/c I myself obviously only own 1 console and must defend its honor at every turn!

    Mehhhhhh

    why not for ps3 ?

    BTW i like it the game, i still trying love my 3ds :)

  • FaithlessMr

    This just became one of my most expected releases. So.good.

  • Kobracon

    OMG pls let this be the next Namco X Capcom! I LOVED that game, and if u knew me you’d know I HATE SRPGs with a passion (Exceptions being SRW and NxC)

    The combat in NxC was amazingly fun. Much like the battle system in SRW Endless Frontier. For those that haven’t played it, I highly recommend getting the ISO and using an Emulator. Theres a fantastic translation patch for it.

    P.S. KOS-MOS and T-ELOS in one team?! DAAAYUM!

  • Zero

    A strategy RPG? eh?

    Hmmm…

    You know what, that sounds like it could really work.

  • Malcolm Reynolds

    @Sal Romano:

    I agree. Can you please point me in the direction of some of these “superior” 3DS games?

    I have sadly grown out of Mario and OoT has been played to death and repurchased by me on multiple platforms so I see no value for a $40 3DS version.

    I mean they could still make some killer PS1 games now days if a dev saw fit but although the PS1 has arguably the best library of games ever….is the PS1 not also an inferior platform in this day and age?

    I will never understand the blind love and free pass nintendo gets when they continually release outdated hardware at inflated prices.

    Although I am likely buying a Wii-U….my statement applies to it as well.
    I’ll buy it…but you wont see me pretending its the second coming of E-Jesus. Mario and Zelda be damned.

    • Sal Romano

      @Malcolm Reynolds: There are plenty of great games on 3DS. Resident Evil: Revelations, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Tales of the Abyss, Cave Story 3D, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 3D Land, and Pushmo, just to name a few.

      And that’s not to forget what’s in the pipeline. There’s Fire Emblem: Awakening, Monster Hunter Tri G, Kingdom Hearts 3D, Bravely Default, Fantasy Life, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, Etrian Odyssey IV, Rune Factory 4, Monster Hunter 4, Guild 01, Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry’s Wonderland 3D, Luigi’s Mansion 2, and more in the works.

    Yuri and Estelle are in it, so that means I’m interested. Very much so.
