yeah, the current release date is June 30, 2013 and it has been for a while. I'm guessing Kenshindono just misread the year.

June 30th, 2013 is a Sunday, so more than likely that's just a placeholder that means that Amazon hasn't been given an actual release date yet.

Is that the same soundtrack CD that came with the UK Limited Edition? If so, I already have the LE, so it isn't that enticing a preorder bonus for me...

Am I missing something? The $35 difference between the two equals two 2.5" figures and one 1.5" figure? That seems a bit steep, unless its a Spinal Tap - Stonehenge type of mix up and the figures are 2'5" tall!

For real. Can anyone detail the censorship in this game for me? I usually despise censorship. This is the first exception.

Anyway, what did they do to the pedo-scenes? Remove them? Edit them? Did they change anything else?

I don't believe they've revealed what is actually being censored yet. The bath pedo fest is just obviously on the chopping block. I don't think anyone can comment on what else may go with it.

He's just confused, lol.

Fuck, though, man. So many games coming out September I've got on pre-order. Tekken Tag 2, DoA 5 (collectors) and now Mugen Souls (collectors).

Gonna be hard to justify $200+ on new games that month ><


Indeed, the fall is getting very spendy, indeed. I've also got the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary set, so that alone will set me back a good bit. All this after having just bought the Ultimate Loot Chest... :/ lol

Meh, Borderlands isn't a big one for me... so luckily I can hold off on that unless some friends pull me in. Either way, I don't care about the game enough to get any limited edition. I'm forcing myself away from the Street Fighter set too. X Tekken left a super sour taste in my mouth with the assist-gems. Broken as Fuck.

Agreed, SFxT was a huge let down. I'm long time Street Fighter fan, though, so even though I already have virtually everything in the set, I still wanted to get it. Definitely wait on Borderlands if you aren't playing it with other people. The first one was so much more fun when playing co-op!

Both Ys games are on sale on Steam. It may be wise to wait and see if they end up as part of a daily deal and go even lower.

I'm trying to stay out of this, but this came up because of this game in this thread. Why are asking to see his posts about completely different games that would be in completely different threads? It's changing the point, and re-shifting the focus. He also never called for it to be banned. Once again, changing the point, and even putting words in his mouth... just sayin'.

Man, I did not think that posting that the LE of the game was available to pre-order would cause such a debate...


Am I missing something? The $35 difference between the two equals two 2.5" figures and one 1.5" figure? That seems a bit steep, unless its a Spinal Tap - Stonehenge type of mix up and the figures are 2'5" tall!


If you think about the cost of how much Nendoroid petit are in Japan, a set of 3, depending on popularity ect, can range from 1500 yen to 3000 yen before shipping. If you take the average, 2250 yen, add about 750 yen for cheap shipping (which is typically uninsured) and it is about 3000 yen which is ~$38.

I am not saying that is how much NISA is paying, but they are getting these from Japan, and these are the same bonus that were in Japanese version, unlike the Disgeae 4 Figurine where the Nendoroid Petit was replace with the cheap figure.

If you don't want the figure get the regular LE, but I think it would probably cost you more than $35 if you try to buy the figure alone from Yahoo Japan Auction.

On to the LE for this game. I'm finding JRPG LEs getting worse and worse as time goes by.


Well, one reason I see is the price difference people are willing to pay for LE here in the US in comparison to Japan. I think the CE in Japan came with a short movie DVD and the nendoroid set only, and was about $100.

Even on this forum, someone thought it was too much to pay $35 more for the nendoroid figures.

Even on the NISA forum, NISA did a poll to see if there would be an interest in bringing a special edition with the White Rock Shooter Figma which lots of people wanted. However when asked how much they would be willing to pay in a poll, most people would not go past $50 for a PSP game, soundtrack, artbook, and Figma which makes me believe that they may not do that Special edition whenever they release the game since a Figma alone is typically ~$30 average before shipping.

We want the cool stuff that they give out in Japan, but we want to pay less than them which is one reason I think we have not gotten any good LE recently.

lol, well, to be honest, I find $35 for a couple 2'' figures to be too pricey. I wish they'd just get rid of the sponge and towel and give me the little figures for $75 or something.

I mean, I can buy a 10'' Poison Ivy DC statue for $50. So I'm not sure, aside from limited availability, how $35 for a couple really small figures is justified. Well... I guess it's not too bad.

Agarest 2's LE was so lame. That was also my 800th game, so it was kind of a let down for the set to be so shitty! lol

Well, like I posted earlier, if you do the math and import those figure which are only made in Japan by a specific company the price sort of pans out if not cheaper. Though I agree with you, I wish we could trash the sponge and towel and pay ~$75 as well.

If you are interested in the Aksys Zero Escape Series, they have confirmed that they will have a limited watch Pre-order bonus Zero Escape: Virtues Last Rewards like they did for 9 hour 9 persons 9 doors which I am looking forward to.
