@pepsiman: Cool thanks for the info! My Japanese is decent, so I'll be ok for the most part I think. I just put the order through so I'll see how it goes. The game looks interesting to me and I need something while I wait for Tales of Zestiria in a few weeks. I'll just avoid the goofy DLC stuff...I don't like that at all, but I won't let it stop me from playing the game.
I have the opportunity to grab the game from a seller for the equivalent of $20 US and I want to know if it is worth it or not. I love the Shining Force series, but I have heard very little about this game, granted, it has only been out for a little over 3 weeks.
