    Gosh this game looks awesome. I love how neighborly the art-direction is; definitely seems like a very approacable title, even for a rogue.
    I’ll be very dissapointed if this doesn’t get localized; item-creation game + Weak Japanese = Big Trouble Ahead

    Honest question, why is Compile Heart so popular? Before Hyperdimension Neptunia they’ve generally been seen as a D-List developer(from what I’ve gathered), and the reviews from Hyperdimension Neptunia seems like many people agree. But they still seem able to fund full PS3 games + translations. Are they getting funded by an ever growing niche or are their games truly that good?

      Niche, the moe funds them.
      Seriously, they’re still D-list.

      I’m not too sure, but Neptunia really revitalized a lot of interest in Japanese-centric games with western audiences, and I think it has just spurned a strong following. Not to mention Compile/Idea are of the very few still bringing JRPG’s to consoles rather than portables, so maybe that gives them a boost in popularity?
      I think of them sort-of like Suda-51 games; while the gameplay itself might be riddled with faults or just not too inventive, the games themselves are very creative and offer unique experiences you can’t get elsewhere. So— respect and admiration, I guess, is what Compile Heart runs on.

      (Personally though, I think Neptunia is one of the weakest series of all time. I truly do not understand why the series succeeds)

    I really hope Aksys licenses this game. I’d say NISA too, but they have a lot on their plate already it seems.

    So yeah, COME ON AKSYS!!

    i thought this was related to the Monogatari series by SHAFT XD

    also please show us some gameplay :P

  • ShinAsura

    Well, I do like the character designs

  • I have a feeling that this game is a mixture of Atelier + Disgaea + Cooking Mama for some reason….

    But I do not care about that, I love games that don’t take themselves seriously…
