    Downloading now. 10 minutes left.

    Also, if I was runnin’ things at SEGA, I’d have put the demo up on U.S. PS3 & PS4 just for shits n giggles and see how many people download it…

      They probably need to have the game rated too, which is way too much work for shit and giggle.

    To anyone who had already downloaded the demo, how accessible is it for non-Japanese speakers?

      Just look at pink marker and fight.

      The animations have improved though

      Interesting how the X button is the default action button though and not the traditional Japanese circle button…even when the on screen button prompt to open the door was a circle….

        I have a JP PS3 so the O button is the confirm command.

    OMG there is a gaijin in the game?
    So far, guns are fun. Things like equipment and Inventory should be accessible if you are familiar JRPGs. Still not sure how to change fighting style.
