    Wasn’t it confirmed already? Anyway, I can’t wait for this game! August is gonna be an awesome month for gamers. This, Xillia and Killer is Dead, Mario & Luigi Dream team, Lost Planet 3, Splinter Cell…damn, I’ll need more money.

      The previous confirmation was the Japanese release date, IIRC.

  • Adol Christin

    Another game I lost hype for ages and ages ago this gen. Will wait for a bargain deal.
    Take note, devs; teasing gamers for year(s) is not good marketing. Game looks as good as it did when first teased, but I’ll be damned to say I actually care it’s here now. I’ve waited this long already; why not wait for a good, solid Used price?

    • HarryHodd

      Or you could buy the game because you want to play it and its worth the money and not buy games based on hype?

  • miyamoto

    Tha only games that matter to me this year are Dragon’s Crown, Toukiden, Phantasy Star Online 2, Soul Sacrifice, Muramasa: Rebirth, Black Rock Shooter: The Game, Tearaway, Killzone:Mercenary, The Last of Us, Beyond,

    The Last Guardian, FF Versus XIII can wait next year.

    PS4 day one

        I don’t see why anyone should buy that game, i still don’t know anything about it really , poor marketing

        • Bryce Blalex Douglas

          Look it up it looks to be pretty interesting. Poor marketing doesn’t equal poor game

    • Elvick

      No Puppeteer? ):

    • Bryce Blalex Douglas

      No Xillia?

    • PrinceHeir

      already pre ordered Muramasa Limited Edition, Soul Sacrifice(paid in full), The Last of Us pre ordered, Tales of Xillia Limited Edition!!!

      and now im thinking or cancelling the Vita version and ordering the PS3 version again(cancelled it for Vita, but the art looks too fucking godly)

      if they put a limited edition , consider both versions both in limited edition as well ^^

  • HarryHodd

    Have my copy pre-ordered. This looks like its going to be tons of fun! Will alternate between Xillia and this.

    regarding the JPN audio by John Hardin PR Manager, ATLUS, a brand of Index Digital Media, Inc. from PS Blog


    “It’s not that they are conflicting opinions – there are decisions that haven’t been made yet. The issues with keeping it in or out are business issues that are still being discussed. Bottom line, I had one expectation of what was going to happen to the audio, but production told me something different. Neither of which are set in stone or things I can talk about in any detail until that decision gets made. I was trying to tease you without getting in specifics and you’re calling me out on it, so there’s an actual response for you.”

    knowing Vanillaware(which all of their games are dual audio one way another) i think it’s safe to assume it’s gonna be the same here as well.

    for me all i ask is can you please put a limited edition run?

    i already plan on cancelling my vita version(after just cancelling the PS3 a few days ago) and revert back to PS3 since the game is gorgeous as hell.

    if you put a limited edition run, i’ll buy both copies in LE Day 1!!!!!

    They should offer a discount for getting both

    dangit was hoping for some announcement with limited edition artbook.
