I'm super interested in this, but I'm wondering whether anyone here could help me decide between playing this on PC, or just getting the Vita version. 'Portability' arguments aside (I do feel like I'd be more inclined to play it on the Vita since I can theoretically do so from the comfort of wherever in the apartment), I can't quite tell what the benefits are (if any) to the PC version, other than a higher resolution.
Looking at the Steam page, it even says the PC version contains 'numerous updates previously seen only in the handheld version', so even in that regard it doesn't seem like I'd be missing much by going with the Vita version.
I think it's purely based on your circumstances. I mean it would undoubtedly look better on a computer monitor than a small vita screen, but then again I played chrono trigger on a psp and enjoyed it. I don't know what benefits this PC version have; sounds like it's possibly the older PC version with any bells and whistles the portable version had. The steam release of Ys book 1 and 2 had three different soundtracks to use for the game, so maybe in this game different audio tracks might be something, or maybe more extras.
But really whatever platform most suits you now, or whatever time you see yourself having the time to play through the game. It's on sale now on steam so now could be a good time to pick it up, even if you plan on playing it later on PC.
Thanks man, that's pretty much where my mind was going, and of course, in a fit of uncontrollable instant gratification last night, I wound up getting it on the Vita. :-)
Looking forward to trailing in the sky! Or whatever.
