Just a reminder for those of you that don't know, this was also added to this weeks store update, so you can just buy the digital version for $15 today too.

guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Would love to have a physical copy of this game (already bought on XBL and will probably eventually buy on PSN as well).  I doubt there will be a physical release outside of the JPN/Asia versions.

 

I assume the box and manual are all in Japanese, but why is the Asia version so much cheaper?

Their games just "cost less", so PA charges less (also helps that they're in Hong Kong too). Same sort of logic how US games typically cost less than Japanese games and quite often EU games, though they're all the same.

Japanese version (not sure about asia version) will feature the ability to customize hero outfit with a color palette as well as the ability to choose up to 4 of the same hero in a game.  More about the differences can be read here:

I've been struggling with the game in Japanese for long enough to know that I'm sick of not knowing what spell I'm about to cast.

 

That said, if the deluxe JP version has a language switch, I... I might bite.

 

EDIT - The gaf thread mentions that there isn't a language setting. None for me I suppose.


As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I'm in the same boat. Really struggled playing the saturn version and was hoping this one would have a translated text in the asia version. Since it doesnt, I may as well buy the digital version as much as I hate to do so.

This is not the same as the digital version.

This one is being developed by the original arcade team and looks to be a better port overall.
Very strange that its being "remade" twice.

Just gotta weigh in here.  Granted I know nothing about the Asian market and no I won't advocate piracy or anything but $40 for a boxed copy of this?!?!  $170+ for a limited edition?  Honestly some of the threads on this forum make me wonder if I'm still on Cheap Ass Gamer.  It's more like 'What The Heck Are You Thinking' Gamer.

Any mention if the Asia version is in Engish or not. (or has an option for English)?  I'd like a physical version, but I'm not paying for a JPN only language copy.


The CAG motto: "Maybe you'll luck out and get the game during a sale before it sells out, maybe not, that's the life of a CAG. Luck of the draw. And timing is everything."

It is very weird. That said, Iron Galaxy are no slouches and my time with the 360 US downloaded version has been very enjoyable.

Since when is MAME stealing?  I believe this discussion has been had ad nauseum and the consensus is that since the arcade machines are no longer produced then it's fair game.  Now, copying the console versions?  Piracy.

While that topic is debatable, saying it's over priced and using piracy as a justification is in fact stealing.

I'm buying the Japanese version because the scaling and filter options in the Iron Galaxy version are crap.
