  • DesmaX

    Didn’t feel like picking this up at full price, but, as a PSN title I’ll buy it when I get the chance

  • bloodiOS

    I’m intrigued, but the price will still be the deciding factor.

    • RyoonZ

      Probably $29.99 like Legasista.

  • Elvick

  • Budgiecat

  • artemisthemp

  • shoryumike

    • Kevadu

      It’s a PS3 game…

      • shoryumike

        Wow. I’m getting older.


    That’s pretty cool, I was on the fence to import this

  • $3582264

    Totally going to buy that if they release it on the vita.

  • Ladius

    I look forward to playing it, this game intrigued me since its Japanese announcement. I would have loved to have a NISA limited edition for this game, but probably a PSN release is the safest bet for such a niche release.
