The PSP continues to live. Class of Heroes 2 may still get a physical release. Even though the kickstarter was unsuccessful it looks like they still may do a preorder only physical release of the game if enough people commit (with an alternate version exclusive to people who backed the Kickstarter).

Kickstarter link for better details:

That's cool. I still would've preferred the CE they were shooting for, so I don't know if a standard UMD would be something truly special.

I'd be all over this if Amazon or Gamestop was doing a pre-order for this. I want to continue to support the PSP.

I got an email this morning from them confirming this. It's unfortunate that the KS didn't meet its goal, but at least there's still a chance of a physical release.

Like others here, I want to continue to buy PSP games, but won't touch non-physical releases.

Class of heroes 2 won't be on amazon or gamtop. It would just be on monkeypaw website with a limited release

I have a question about international shipping.

How are sites like YesAsia able to offer free shipping? I sent them a return and the shipping cost was $24. That was the cheapest available. Also how are international sellers on ebay able to offer $2.99 and free shipping on items? Is there a certain method they are using?

The postal service in those countries charge less than USPS for international shipping. The recent price increase for USPS increase domestic by 10 cent, but increased international mailing by A LOT.

Vic will probably produce the physical copies to have different disc art. Kinda like how he did for the original Lunar: The Silver Star and the Playstation remakes of Lunar 1 and 2.

A majority of the discs will have the same art, with a select few having the more rare artworks shown.

The Class of Heroes 2 pre-order interest gauging email address isn't being announced until Monday. This is the most recent message they sent to those of us who signed up to fund the unsuccessful Kickstarter CE project:

"The complete informaiton regarding the Class of Heroes 2 physical+digital combo release will be posted on http://www.gaijinworks.com at 10am Monday, 2/4. If you're interested in micro-updates on Class of Heroes 2 and other Gaijinworks information, my official twitter is @gaijin4life Thanks!"

Also, they increase the prices of the actual items a bit to absorb the extra shipping cost. If you compare Play-Asia prices to Yes-Asia prices (I picked P-A because it's a similar Asian import store aimed at Westerners) you'll see that Y-A costs more for the same items. P-A also has free shipping now but there's a minimum order and it's only for small/light/flat things, so they don't have to pay much for the small packets and they make enough profit off the order to cover it.

The biggest factor is the economy of scale at work. E-tailers (whether domestic or export) have bulk shipping contracts with their providers of choice, they don't pay anywhere close to the same rates you and I would. What would cost you or me $10 to ship on a one-off transaction only costs an e-tailer a fraction of that because they ship in such bulk.

I used to work for a major US e-commerce provider and it would cost us on average about 25% of the normal retail shipping charge to send something out. That discount rate was pretty much the same whether domestic or international.

There are easily 2500 people who would purchase a physical copy of this game just for collector's sake ALONE. Half of the problem is the same problem every other indie game and B/niche game has - few people take the time to look to see what's out there unless its free-to-play MMORPGs.

I don't know about that. It really depends on the price and how well it's promoted. Holy Invasion of Privacy Part One couldn't even hit 1000 preorders and that was long before the second one was announced for localization.

they can lower the price since they don't have to give a cut to the kickstarter people.

Sign-up for the physical copies of Class of Heroes 2 is up over at http://www.gaijinworks.com/

While it's not an actual pre-order, Victor Ireland is seeing if enough people would sign up for this project. Also a few tidbits of info: Class of Heroes 2 will be $24.99 on PSN but if the physical project sign-up is a success, the physical copy plus download code will be priced at $34.99. I already signed up to support Ireland's work toward this. There's also video footage of the localized game on the site.

Nice, signed up for a copy. I like that for only $10 more, you get a physical copy plus a downloadable version.

Glad to see that the threshold for making the physical version a reality is 2500 copies and not 2500 orders. In for 5 to try and help make this thing a reality.

Yea, this is a fantastic deal. We still get a digital copy so that we can keep our physical copies mint while enjoying the game either on PSP or Vita. I'd love to see more of this in the future and I also support this idea as well.
