Hot freakin' damn! This is awesome news. Now I wonder if we'll get the same bonuses that Japan got. That'd be awesome.

I actually picked up the regular edition almost 2 weeks ago for 30 dollars, and then a few days later they're selling the LE for an extra 10. What a dick move on Play-Asia's part. :/ And then a few days after that (today), I find out the game's getting localized, but I was expecting that anyway because this sort of thing has happened before. Play-Asia's just clearing out stock like crazy because they're worried they're not gonna sell these anymore after today. Well, they didn't really need to worry about that in my case, since I only own a Japanese 3DS.

Excellent, I can keep my LE in the box sealed :D


I should point out that limited editions aren't actually worth a damn in Japan. So if you wanna keep it sealed because you think it looks cool, that's fine, just don't expect a major return on your investment someday. If you're ever in Akihabara, you'll see.

I'm not too worried. I'm a collector for the most part :D

Yes, PS2 games are all region locked. You can load up a memory card with some software to soft-mod it (& I think maybe a USB flash drive too) though, which would work just fine for your game backups. I've done it with my Beet the Vandel Buster & DQ VIII JP-region games. Works like a charm, & none of that quick-swap/ console mod bullshit. I don't think the board allows public posting about softmodding consoles, but I'll PM you about it if you want; only if you have original copies of your games, of course. Same goes for anyone else that's reading this & is interested, I guess.

This topic needs more cowbell.

Playing a game you buy right away instead of putting it in the backlog?
Perish the thought. This is CAG. People don't play games here.

Localized-schmocalized; Special edition of a JP region game that just game out/is coming out for forty bucks? Come on.

Then again, I don't have a 3DS ;'

As has been said already, Collector's Editions of Japanese games don't have much of a resale value. You'd be lucky to get $5 profit.

I don't know why so many sites thought it wouldn't be released here;. It has characters from franchises that were popular in the U.S. as well, so it only makes sense.

Probably the fact that there are so many different characters/series in it. We never got the Namco one for PS2. The game itself just made me think of the Super Robot Wars series and why we never get the games anymore.

No where close to Super Robot Wars. A Super Robot Wars got license owned by dozens of companies. This game Namco only have to go to 2 companies, Capcom and Sega. Namco and Capcom already got a relationship from SF X Tekken, and Sega isn't difficult to work with either.

It's still somewhat similar, and its a fairly niche game. Its understandable why so few people thought we would ever see it.

Plus, I was pretty sure that the Original Generation games didnt have any (Or very few) guest mechs, yet they never worked out a way for us to get any of those either. (Or simply make a new one for us)

I won't call a game with characters from Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Tekken, and Dead Rising niche. The cast is certainly more popular than Playstation All Star.

I mean the gameplay style, its basically an SRPG. We would be lying to ourselves if we considered that popular lol, though the cast would definitely help getting the game out there.
