    This is rather import friendly. I also want to point out that you can change voices from the title menu (not sure if he showed this in the video since I want to avoid spoilers) and if you want Japanese subtitles, change your console settings to Japanese. Otherwise, all of the menus and such will be in English, which is typical of a GHM game.

      Rather wait. It’s not like its that long from now plus it’ll be cheaper..

        Good for you? I was just informing people that it would be okay to import if they didn’t want to wait X3

  • TheFoolArcana

    Jesus fucking christ, 87 minutes?!

      Did you expect the game to only be an hour long…? Why so surprised?

      • Bobby Jennings

        He didn’t expect 87 minutes of gameplay

          I wouldn’t either if I read impressions of the game and saw that the first mission is only about 5 minutes long, and a cutscene no less, lol. That’s what I’ve heard anyway. I’m not watching those videos cause I’m trying to avoid spoilers for the most part.

          I just wanted to find out about the gameplay mechanics and such from someone who already has it.

          • Bobby Jennings

            Understandable. Game looks friggin awesome..I can’t help but thing it won’t be long though. I might wait a bit on it since I gotta pick up Jojo

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Ah. This is going to be holding me off until Jojo since that comes out towards the end of the month along with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Masou Kishin III – Pride of Justice. So yeah, this along with Mind-0 is supposed to hold me off until those three arrive, haha.

    blows my mind!

    could it be that the japanese version has multiple language settings(like Blazblue and Anarchy Reigns?)

    i asked the uploader the question.

    if he confirms it, then i’ll cancel my US order and go with this one instead!

      Well, if my message wouldn’t have fallen into the abyss, you would have the answer to this already. For whatever reason, it completely disappeared a few minutes after posting. I’m not sure if it’s awaiting “moderation” or what. Anyway, I’ll just give a brief recap of what I said though.

      EN and JP voices are selectable from a menu. All menus are in EN unless your console setting is on JP. So, this makes it very import friendly since you can have EN menus/subtitles/etc. with JP voices, but if you ever want JP subtitles, just switch the console language setting and voila.

      • PrinceHeir


        yeah the uploader also confirmed it just now


        it seems this is like Lollipop Chainsaw except this time they allow you to change the voices in the menu and not depending on your system language settings(like Lollipop Chainsaw did)

        i love region free games! and i wish more developers do this kind of stuff!

        menu is based on your system language, then voices are selectable on the options

        fucking awesome!!!

        i’m guessing you have yours? :D

        i know Limited Edition is the first print run, did you get the Famitsu DX Pack?

        it has a phone cards posters on it :)


        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Nope. I haven’t got mine yet. My Premium Edition is still in ‘preparing order’ status on Play-Asia. I’ll probably receive an e-mail in the next 3-5 hours or so letting me know they’ve shipped it though. Just judging from the timestamps on my previous e-mails anyway.

          Mind-0 shipped out earlier today, which I found out comes with a poster as well with the other first print goodies, so that’s cool. I should have both of them on Friday though since I always go with FedEx Next Day Air.

          Afterward, I’ll start posting some gameplay on Youtube as well :3

          • PrinceHeir

            hmm i’m still deciding if i should get this or wait for the US version.


            yeah definitely do!

            what is your youtube channel again?

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Really wish there was a PM system on here since I don’t want to look like I’m advertising here. I guess it can’t be helped.

    I think one video should be enough. I don’t want to be spoiled further.
