    Awesome! I’ll be on the U.S.A on that date. I’ll be sure to take my 3ds with me on my trip!

  • Dice

    For lack of better words: YAAAAAAAAAAY.

  • Budgiecat

    kinda tired of that art style. Woulda preferred a cleaned up Vagrant Story type style

    • Aiddon

      it works better for the 3DS due to the smaller screens. Yoshida’s VS art style wouldn’t be appropriate

      • Budgiecat

        BS…SMT IV works just fine as does the One Piece and Toriko games. No need for chibi

        • Aiddon

          Toriko and One Piece also have very exaggerated, colorful, cartoony art styles. Stylization and exaggeration are better for smaller screens

    • Dice

      I can see where you’re coming from, but I think it’s also kind of harking back to the 16-bit era RPGs of chibi & chubbier graphics like all the old FF games..

      • Budgiecat

        The CGI and the 2D art isn’t chibi though

        • Dice

          Neither was it with FFIV, V, and VI. The PSX ports of the games also had properly proportioned CGI models.

    • Raoni Marques

      Although Vagrant Story had a pretty awesome art style, I really dig this one too. Anyway, I’d be happy with either

    • Samsara09

      Maybe the sucessor to the 3ds’s sucessor can pull it off.If you don’t like it,well,don’t buy it…or try to become one of SE’s designers.

  • Anime10121

    Damn February’s gonna be packed with dat RPG goodness!

    Bravely default on the 7th
    LR FFXIII on the 11th
    Tales of Symphonia Chronicles on the 25th


  • bldudas

    I want the collector’s edition.. >.< I almost imported, too.

    • Raoni Marques

      I might as well get the collector’s edition. Hope it’s easy to find on stores

  • Auragar

    So does that mean US is getting the CE?

    • Dice

      Read that article again

  • EX+

    Hey uh, Sal? This is some big shit:
    Sony wants to bring SHENMUE to PlayStation!

  • Azuardo

    For me, this CE is actually better than what we’re getting in Europe because it doesn’t have the figurine, which has bumped up the EU CE price heavily. I wish we had two options in EU – one with the figurine and one without. So I think I’ll just pick up the regular EU edition.

  • Zero

    I can’t wait to get this game. I plan on buying the CE. =)

  • Samsara09

    it is the same game as the European version.Can’t believe it will take 2 months.Oh well.At least it is coming…but man,my holidays will be over by then.AHHHHH!!!Oh!Shit….there is also Lightning Returns!Crap,now I am done.

  • Elvick

    I want the figure… fucking NoA.

  • new_tradition

    Not to bag on Europe, but why are they getting the game 2 months earlier than North America? If anything, there should be less to do for a NA release O_o

    A little sucky about the lack of the figurine, but oh well. Truthfully, I’m not sure if I wanna get the CE. I pre-ordered the game at a promo price (saved about 7 bucks), so taking that into account, I don’t know how much extra I’m willing to spend for a CE. Hrmm…

    • Elvick

      Because NoE cares more than NoA. The struggle to get the Rainfall stuff is evidence of that. NoA is just going through the motions.

  • PrinceHeir

    why no figurine :(

    such a disappointment. it’s the same with Metal Gear Rising and instead we got a stupid overpriced piece of shit lamp.

    is US against figures for some reason??

  • LustEnvy

    Down to buy a 2DS just for this game. I sold my 3DS XL a while back since I’m not much of a portable gamer nowadays, but this is a true as a portable Final Fantasy as we’re gonna get in awhile. My Vita is collecting dust, but Y’s is coming out in a few weeks, not to mention PS4 remote play…

  • Shinsua

    Ah, good, just a week after my birthday. I’ll have funds for once.

  • Astrid Huang

    I’m SO excited!
    This game is one of the reasons why I bought a 3DS.. I can’t afford the CE though, so I’ll most likely just buy the regular one..

  • Hunter French

    Can’t wait! Haven’t played a real RPG since FF6!
