  • Chaos Raiden

    Excellent. Can’t wait for this game when it is released, since Suda51 games have amazing and interesting concepts.

  • TetsuyaHikari

    Damn yooooooooooooou! Okay, this is going to be quite troublesome, haha. There are three great imports I’m looking forward to coming out in August.

    Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle
    Mind 0
    Killer is Dead

    How do you expect me to buy all of these in the same month?! Bah… I’ll figure out a way to do so, lol. Still, glad we finally have a month for when it releases though~

    • PrinceHeir

      hell yeah JoJo, Killer is Dead will be my gaming on august :D

      shame college starts at september T_____T

      why not release this games on summer!!!!!

      • TetsuyaHikari

        Well, technically… August is part of Summer :3

        Don’t forget Dragon’s Crown.

        • PrinceHeir

          oh yeah i also pre ordered the PS3 version after cancelling to Vita a few days ago(can’t resists those art!!!)

    • Kurisu Makise

      I’m confused why would you need to import Killer is Dead when it’s being localized/released worldwide?

      • TetsuyaHikari

        The same reason I imported Lollipop Chainsaw Premium Edition even though we were getting Lollipop Chainsaw localized? Because I can? Plus, I like the boxart more for the JP version, lol.

        Also, 90% of my PS3 library consists of imports, sooooo… No real need to change that unless I have to (see: The Last of Us coming in June). It’s a preference more than anything at this point.

        • Kurisu Makise

          Ah, a preference, nothing wrong with that (though I admit I myself could not afford such a preference).

          • TetsuyaHikari

            Tell me about it, lol. Paying $90 – $110 per import is none too fun. That’s why I basically went, “FUUUUUUUUU-” when I saw that Killer is Dead was announced for August… The same time Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle and Mind 0 come out ;w;

            Life can be so cruel sometimes! I’ll get them all anyway, but my wallet is going to hate me =3=

            EDIT: Truth be told though, Grasshopper Manufacture is pretty good with their prices for imports. No More Heroes: Red Zone only cost me about $50 and the only reason I paid so much for Lollipop Chainsaw was because I got the Premium Edition, but even then… I don’t expect Killer is Dead to be any more than $60 or so as an import.

    EDIT: Owait, I thought it said August for everywhere, not just Japan. Nevermind :3
