      I so want to play it too. Btw what day is it in The Us. Because l live in Australia and in 6 hours it’s Tuesday.

        Its usually Tuesday for the U.S. but I don’t know about Australian Time Zone. I’m guessing Thursday for Australia.

            Don’t expect the demo for at least another 22ish hours from now.

        Keep in mind that the Australian PSN is different than the US one, mate… Australia might be getting the demo some time around Europe’s date…

    Looks like I’ll finally get a chance to play the game I pre-ordered months ago. =) Looking forward to it.

  • PrinceHeir

    already pre ordered the Wizard’s Edition exclusive to Club Namco Bandai store.

    they’re not taking any orders now, and i freaking hope i get it since i was one of the few first that pre ordered it as soon as it was up.

    don’t let me down Namco!!!

    i’ll probably not play the demo just so i can be surprised.

    • xMCXx

      I also already preordered the Wizard’s Edition! :D
      Just over Amazon, though, a few months ago.
      Can’t wait to try it out!

      • PrinceHeir

  • LegendaryLos

    A demo? Pfff… I rather wait for the full version since I want to remain un-spoiled as much as possible..

  • Mar Mar

    Eh? A RPG game getting a demo? That’s unusual but all I can say is, YAY!

    • LordKaiser

      D3 Publisher soiled their image by pointing fingers to Lavel-5 about WKC2 DLC being Japan exclusive only. So maybe that’s the reason or that this game is to child like and people overlook them or that many think is a copy of Pokemon.

      wuts unusual?

  • new_tradition

    I was planning to import the special edition from Zavvi already, so I kind of forgot about the game. Definitely wanna check out the demo :3

  • LordKaiser

    I hope this game sells well or else there will be less JRPGs to us. Lavel-5 have to adress issues with past games and clear their image.

    • xMCXx

      This game is Level 5 + Studio Ghibli + Joe Hisaishi.
      If this doesn’t sell like hotcakes I’m gonna leave this planet.

  • hoez

    PSN EU will get it the day after the US :)

  • vertical09

    Nice that this game is getting a demo.
    It’s hard to recommend the game to some people because they blow it off for having a childish artstyle.
    Hopefully this demo can change their mind~

  • fireemblembeast

    Can’t wait to try this out while my parents are gone. They don’t let me play on weekdays, so I have to do this. Like hell I’m waiting until Saturday! :/

    Does anyone know how long from now demos usually come out in the U.S.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

      It’s currently 8:26 AM EST. The PS Store will likely be updated sometime in the early evening/late afternoon. I would guess 4 – 6 PM EST. (For the U.S.)

      It could launch sooner, but I doubt it. My best advice is to check the PS blog, they typically update it with a post that lists what is new on the store this week, which means the store has probably been updated/fixing to be.

    Is this gonna be on the USA’s PSN? I just checked and it’s not there. :[

  • xMCXx

    Just played it.
    It’s…..beautiful….! I got the same feeling I had when I played Dragon Quest 8.
