    Thought this was not coming outside japan?

    • HeatPhoenix

      It isn’t.

      • Marco Tinè

        … and it kind of sucks.

        • HeatPhoenix

          LET’S IMPORT!

          -> play-asia.com

  • PrinceHeir

    man this looks fast paced and awesome :D

    definitely need to localize this Capcom US!!!!!!

      It actually looks good. That’s why they aren’t localizing it, lol.

      • PrinceHeir

        what do you think about these games that are similar to Ex Troopers??

        Earth Defense 4
        Steel Chronicle
        Gunslinger Stratos

        i played Lost Planet 1 and 2(yes 1 on PS3, wasn’t that bad, but the movement was slow as hell)

        and im very hype for Ex Troopers, seems like the kind of game Lost Planet needed to stay fresh ^^

          Mmmm… Not too crazy about EDF games, honestly. I just never saw the appeal of them. I’m not familiar with the other two, so I can’t really say one way or another about those. All I know is, I’m interested in E.X. Troopers and I’m sure I’ll have more fun with it than any of the Lost Planet games (and no, not simply because it’s an “ANIMU GAEM”, but because it actually just looks like it would be more FUN in general).

            here some gameplay of Steel Chronicle :D

            you’ll be amaze on how this reminds me of Ex Troopers mix with Phantasy Star.

            the gliding is nice and it’s also fast paced crazy action :)

            Gunslinger Stratos looks fast paced too :)

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDUrYd3liak

            agree, it’s not because it’s anime look, but it freaking looks fun especially as a shooter nowadays.

            i don’t care about the latest graphics or physics, i just want to have FUN, and it seems Ex Troopers might get the job done.

            it’s a shame only EDF4 is console, while both games above are arcade.

            maybe Konami(ha not sure about this one) and square should release this on consoles ^^

            • http://soundcloud.com/tet-chan TetsuyaHikari

              Ah… No wonder I wasn’t familiar with them. They’re arcade titles. Yeah, I don’t usually follow arcade stuff since 9 times out of 10, the ones I really want to play only stay in Japan anyway.

              The only arcade stuff I actually keep up with is Gundam or a fighting game since most of those come to consoles at some point.

              • Kobracon

                Yeah…thats why theres a time in most gamers life where you just hafta man up and hit the books. Because learning Japanese is the best way to enjoy any japanese game you want regardless of whether they are ever localized or not because its “too anime/weird” for the rest of the world…

                • http://soundcloud.com/tet-chan TetsuyaHikari

                  Er… I’ve already “manned up”, lol. I’ve been importing games since the mid 90’s, man. “Hitting the books” has nothing to do with this. I just don’t really see the point in following Japanese arcade titles since:

                  A. I don’t live in Japan
                  B. I’m not spending $5,000+ just to fly to Japan and stay for a week to try these games
                  C. Most of the obscure ones like the ones PrinceHeir is talking about won’t reach U.S. shores anyway

                  I’d be more than happy to give them a shot if they were ported to console, but until then *shrugs*. Hell, I’ve only bought one domestic title this whole year and it was Persona 4 Arena, and that was only because of the region lock issue with the JP version. So yeah, I don’t really need somebody telling me how to enjoy imports :P

                  • Kobracon

                    I’m sorry it sounded that way. Didn’t mean to sound like I was telling you how to enjoy something. Its great that you know Jap already. I’m having a hard time with the Kanji’s. How long have you been studying it?

                    • http://soundcloud.com/tet-chan TetsuyaHikari

                      Oh… I apologize for taking it that way. I guess I’m just a little sensitive when it comes to stuff like that. I was self-teaching for a while with a couple of books my friend got when taking it in college. He left them at my place when he went to travel overseas for a teaching position.

                      Unfortunately, like any self-teaching individual… I kind of fell out of the loop with it since I didn’t have any real teacher or anybody to tell me to study. Basically, one day I was just like, “Meh. I’ll study tomorrow.” Well, tomorrow came and I said, “Ehhh… I don’t feel like it today. I’ll do it later.” So forth and so on, lol.

                      Basically, it got to the point where my knowledge of the language degenerated into basic stuff like katakana and hiragana. I figured since I knew enough to navigate through the games I import, I didn’t have a reason to study any more. The only problem I really have in games is when they throw in kanji in the subtitles or use it to name things (or describe them). Even then though, most games are voiced these days and that’s what I picked up on first, so I can pretty much fill in the blanks by process of elimination (i.e. only understanding 90% of what is said and figuring out the remaining part, I mean).

                      Yeah, I guess it can be annoying at times, but I’ve noticed a LOT of games don’t really use kanji much anyway. It’s kind of a dying form of writing I think. They probably just figure that since less and less people these days are bothering to learn kanji, it would just be easier to put a majority of the menus and stuff in hiragana and katakana. The only games I even play these days that still have a lot of kanji in them are Ryu ga Gotoku and Sengoku Basara.

                      Other than that, they’re fairly easy to navigate through even with a basic understanding of Japanese, which is fortunate for someone like me.

                    • Kobracon

                      Oh god Basara! Even my friend who is studying in Japan says Basara is a nightmare to read. All teh olden day Kanji used in there, while authentic, is really hard to read for the aspiring Japanese game player.

                      And yeah what you described pretty much sounds like me too. Although I’m a little worse coz my Katakana is still rusty. I figured I’ll just get some kinda Kanji dictionary on my phone or something and refer to it as I play.

                      Yeah, haha. I’ve been following Basara since the second one, but even being a hack and slash title, the menus are a NIGHTMARE, lol. I understand what they were going for to try and keep the authenticity of the timeline and everything, but sheesh. They even go so far as to put something as simple as “Options” in kanji. What is that?! Lol.

                      Well, in any event, judging from the gameplay and screenshots I’ve seen of E.X. Troopers, it won’t be a hassle to play. Oh and I guess I should have also mentioned the Super Robot Wars series for kanji heavy games. They still seem to use a bit in those.

                    • Kobracon

                      Funny you should mention SRW. Been playing the series since Alpha gaiden on the PS1 and was my first Japanese game. I used to go through the games through pure trial and error and never caring bout the story. But as I got older, I started getting curious and reading up how epic the past stories have been. You could say SRW was the series that sparked my will to learn Jap once and for all.

                    • http://soundcloud.com/tet-chan TetsuyaHikari

                      It’s funny. I can think of three people off the top of my head who learned Japanese simply BECAUSE of SRW, heh.

    For those who wanted to try the game, a demo would be available for both PS3 and 3DS:

    If you happen to have a PS3 and a Japanese PSN account, you can download it once it’s available. If you haven’t created one, then I hope this would be useful:
