    Finally a release date. Can’t wait to play this for extended periods of time.


    • GaySkull

      Sorceress says YESS!
      i wonder what is the rating….

  • Bloodios

    Sweet! Man, it sure felt like it has been a long time since the game was first announced. I wonder what took them so long?

    • Skerj

      Well it was announced well before the Vita came out, so you’re right mate. Buying it on both systems too.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Considering this was Vanillaware’s first foray into PS3 development, they likely ran into some technical trouble. It was said that Atlus/Index provided them with staff to help finish up the game when they took over as publisher.

  • JonathanisPrimus

    8190 better include both versions of the game…

    • DrForbidden

      I believe so. It wouldn’t make sense otherwise.

    • 新阿修羅(ShinAsura)

      Both versions?

      • DrForbidden

        PS3 + PSV

  • Solomon_Kano

    Will get for PS3 and Vita. Super psyched for this. Vanillaware definitely deserves the support, so I look forward to getting this.

    Hm. I think I might replay Odin Sphere while we wait for this to release.

  • DarthBrian

    So if I want it on PS3 and Vita I have to buy it twice right?

    Done. <3

  • rockman29

    Haven’t heard a ton of news and suddenly release date wtf….. lol.

    • Kurisu Makise

      Vanillaware was cooking in the kitchen, it’s almost time to serve up a rare and delicious treat.

  • DrForbidden

    Wow. Tanaka Atsuko AND Inoue Kikuko? Awesome.

    • PrinceHeir

      love Major in Ghost in the Shell :)

      KiKuko Inoue The Boss in MGS series :)

      • z_merquise

        Kikuko Inoue is also Sunny in MGS series too.

        • PrinceHeir

          oh yeah i forgot that too!!

          man she has a lot of MGS roles XD

  • Shadow_Raskolnik

    If the North American release date turns out to be true then that means this might be similar to Odin Sphere which had both the Japanese and North American versions released close together.

  • PrinceHeir

    already plan on buying both versions so announced a world wide release already!!!

    • Elvick

      Not sure about EU, but we know it’s coming to NA already. So there’s that at least.

      I’ve had both versions preordered on amazon forever.

      • PrinceHeir

        lol it;s still in there database O__O

        didn’t they removed sometime in 2012??

        • Elvick

          Amazon.ca didn’t.

          • PrinceHeir

            oh i see ^^

            must be a long time now huh O__O

            • Elvick

              My order is from August 2012.

              • PrinceHeir

                gonna be a year now huh O__O

    • As ATLUS are handling publishing duties it will at least arrive in the States soon after the Japanese release. Europeans are lucky if it releases within a year of the Us release (c.f.P4A).

  • Adol Christian

    Muramasa Rebirth, Valhalla Knights 3, Soul Sacrifice, Dragon’s Crown and
    my boy Ys: Memories of Celceta. A lot of good vita titles to look forward too :)

  • GaySkull

    Gematsu is Number 1

  • Kickersu18

    ‘m so hyped for this game. I#m glad to see the game comes out this year. Now all i need to know is, when the game will be released in EU

  • z_merquise

    Wow! They sure hire talented voice actors in this and just by imagining their voices seems to perfectly fit the characters’ looks.

    Kikuko Inoue as Sorceress. Hmm. I remember she also voiced the busty wizard queen in Grand Knights History. Also Atsuko Tanaka. I mostly see her voicing tough female characters so yeah, sounds good for Amazon.

  • Rafael Martines

    Elf is played by who make the voice of Tsubaki Yaoi (Blazblue CS) *__*
    Sorceress got the voice from Lust (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood) *___*
    Amazon got the voice from Lisa Lisa (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure The Animation) *___*
    Wizard got the voice from Yasutora Sado (Bleach) and Guile (Super Street Fighter IV)
    Dwarf got the voice from Van Hohenheim (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood)

    Only top voice actors *___* Hope for dual audio on western release o/

  • Ni
