If you are please let me know why you're getting it! And also if you're also getting the art book! :)
PM if you wanna add me to your friends list and so we can play some PSN games together!
Yep, I'm definitely getting it but I'm not sure exactly when. Tales of Xillia comes out on the same day and I've already got the limited edition of that pre ordered so I might pick it up then or the week after. I also kinda want to play Muramasa on the Vita before then but I don't know if I'll have the time.
Man, you scared me for a second. I thought this was in response to the release date approaching but it's still off in August. Yeah I'm definitely in, I just wish it was a cross-buy title. I haven't read anything about the gameplay quality, if it turns out not to be up to snuff I may opt for that Muramasa Vita release.
I've been ready since I bought my Vita on launch.
The hang-up on the sorceress is understandable, I guess, but it's not anything that you haven't seen in a Vanillaware game before. The only difference is that it's one of the main characters now. The Queen of the Underworld in Odin Sphere was far more traumatizing. Vanillaware is pretty consistent in equal opportunity oversexualization, and I get if that's a personal turn off, but honestly I dig it. Someone whose username I don't remember compared the aesthetic to Frank Frazetta's artwork, and that person is a genius. I will mention, by the way, that some of my favorite art design in a game is unironically from Ai Cho Aniki.
I'll probably end up importing the Japanese version since it's out next month, and then pick up the US release later on.
I think it looks pretty good so far. The video footage of the gameplay looks really fun (especially the amazon, dwarf and elf) but I need to eventually read some e3 impressions to see if it actually is fun.
I thought Muramasa was pretty good, and Odin sphere was okay -- but both games suffered from too much repetition. I guess the art is a lot harder to make than most games, so it gets reused.
