I'd usually preorder ASAP, but I want to see if Xseed is doing an LE for this one ad they did with their psp Ys releases.


I thought all launch copies of those PSP Ys games were LEs with stand alone game-only copies not coming until subsequent production runs (if at all). If that remains the case, a pre-order now would essentially be a pre-order of the LE.

Only Ys I and II PSP had first print thats LE. For the other games they got two different SKU

Currently, Class of Heroes II sign-up is now at 1,000. Almost half way to go, people.

Plus, barring Sony's interference, if this sign-up is successful, it could open up for Gaijinworks to localize the rest of the Class of Heroes series.

I know this kind of random but has anyone heard if dj max technika tune was ever sold through amazon? I remember hearing somewhere that it would eventually be sold on amazon. Not sure what happened.

It's sold by Pentavision through Amazon third party. It's cheaper from Pentavisions site cause you'll save shipping.

Oh ok . I couldn't find it there. But if it is cheaper at their website might as well get it from there. Thanks!

Xseed sent out an email today. In addition to Ys: Memories of Celceta available for preorder, so is Killer is Dead (360/PS3), and Valhalla Knights 3 (Vita).

It also mentions Pandora's Tower (Wii), Rune Factory 4 (3DS), and Y's I&II Chronicles (Steam), but I think those have been up for preorder for a while.

Nice! That is really great and I hope they will be able to release the others physically too. Isn't there a Vita Class of Heroes game coming out in japan or is already out? That would be nice to have yet another vita game to look forward too also.

Killer is Dead looks so awesome. The gameplay will hopefully be as cool as the rest of it looks. I actually really, really want to play it!

Nice. I hope it makes it. I'm willing to throw $40 Vic's way if it helps localize more games like that. Makes me wonder if some of the WD voice actors will be used in many of their localizations.

Well according to his response in this NeoGAF thread, Kathy Emma (who had a speaking role in Lunar 2 and sang the opening theme in Growlanser III) sings a song in CoH 2.

If the CoH Kickstarter was successful and then some, John Truitt was supposed to lend his voice talents to the game but sadly that never happened. However, if CoH 2 happens to be successful whether due to physical sign-up, digital sales, or a combination of both, he did say he'll bring back more WD voice talent in his future games.

Thanks for heads up. I had absolutely no idea this would actually get localized.

Current status update for CoH 2:

Spoiler


Gaijinworks latest Twitter post states the sign-up has surpassed the halfway mark at around 1,300 units. Let's keep it up!

Joystiq and RPGamer have posted articles about the game today.

I signed up for two copies, but since I was in the KS I may raise it to 3. That way I can have a KS one to play, and a regular and KS one to look at and go "OOOOOOoooooo"

Ahh Lemina's voice actress. If I recall right, her and Jenny Stigile were seriously smokin'. I was hoping Xseed would have reached out to the original Lunar cast for Harmony of the Silver Star, but I think all of them but Stigile declined.

That would be cool if he can manage that. I'm sure everyone will have a blast working together again. In for more outtakes. "I AM ZOPHAR, MASTER OF... shit!!"

"Then we can get a fantastically huge dragon diamond worth $1,000's and $1,000's of shit!!!!" XD

I think that's about right for the Ramus outake. Plus there's a very special hidden Zophar voice recording in Lunar 2 ps1 that REALLY is aimed to mess with you and funny as hell. Seeing if anyone remembers it.

I think CoH 2 will reach the 2500 mark, but Siliconera is doing it little favors with the title of the CoH 2 article that they did..."Would you buy a boxed copy of Class of Heroes 2 for $35?" (even though it says you get a digital copy with it I'm sure there are many people who will take it as insulting).

EDIT - I didn't read the rest of the text below the title ROTFL - ass - u - me right?
