    Neat. Always nice to have more PS Vita titles announced.

  • bloodiOS

    Wow, I didn’t think they would announce a Vita port that quickly. I do suppose it’s more likely to sell on the Vita then it would be on the Xbox 360.

    • icecoffemix

      I don’t understand why they even bother putting it on 360 for game with no western release in mind.

      • bloodiOS

        One last title for any Xbox 360 fan that’s still around, perhaps?

  • Alkhan

    For some strange reason I read “Palace” as “People” in both of those titles…

    It’s probably time to get off the internet and go to bed….

  • RyoonZ

    Why can’t I hold all these JRPGs?

  • MrFinalgamer

    this is nice, i guess. maybe kami-Aksys will localize this too ;) ?

  • Kobracon

    Whoa whoa what is this? This looks pretty cool. Can’t wait for more details!

  • Pyrofrost

    This kinda irritates the shit outta me, seriously.

    Tokyo Shinseiroku: Operation Abyss (which was supposed to be out in Jan) is now TBD with a place holder for a release date, and now we have this.

    • bloodiOS

      That’s because Cyberfront went under, wasn’t it? I’m thinking they’re still busy sorting things out.

      • Pyrofrost

        Yeah, I just wish they would get the game that’s finished ironed out before they moved on to the next project.

        Of course, this is just a development announcement; the Operation Abyss issue is just a publishing one. I’m mostly irritated because I don’t want the game to disappear.

      • Nate

        I did not know that Cyberfront had issues. They are supposed to be making my Xbox One/Ps4 dot hack rpg.

  • icup ✔️

    for a min when i read the title i thought it had something to do with Sword of the Stranger (the anime).

    so tell me again why this is on the 360 console but playstation gets it on a portable? not that i’m complaining i just prefer to play my games on the home console than my portables.

    • bloodiOS

      The Cell >.>

      • Elvick

        Most likely.

    • GhostNomad

      +1 for Sword of the Stranger. Had the exact same thought when I saw the article’s title. Ended up watching that movie again because of that :D

      • icup ✔️

        definitely a good movie, worth re-watching.

  • Kattaro

    So this means that PC version will be released later than PS VITA version. Well maybe it will be released on steam or something if of course it will be released outside Japan.

  • TetsuyaHikari

    Well, this isn’t surprising. It would be weird to see them suddenly break away from Vita when they’ve already been showing it support lately with dungeon RPGs. I’ll keep my eye out for this one.
