I love to find out why this couldn't be released in NA. I mean, after all, XSEED had the balls to say Grand Knights History was canceled due to the developer not being able to lend a hand in programming the English script.

I know this is their own IP but they should be honest to their fanbase. Well, we'll find out what is in that blog post in the coming weeks.


That's considered having balls? They threw the developers under the bus. The developers likely have their hands tied for reasons unknown to us. It's no surprise that a publisher would want to keep mum about delivering an inferior product, especially their own. My guess: porting a PS1 game is considerably easier/cheaper than porting a PSP game.

that seems odd to me, I don't think there is any major difference engine wise between the PSP versions of Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment

what possible problem could they have run into with Eternal Punishment that is impossible to overcome that Innocent Sin wouldn't have had?


There is a huge difference. The PSOne version is done and very little work is involve. They dont need any original stuff to do any work. The PSP version got some new stuff, requires Q&A and so on.

There could be a few reasons. The PSP team was let go, assigned to a new project, ect.

Does anyone know what's going on with the Class of Heroes 2 stuff? I know we hit 2500 and I signed up for 1 before we hit 400. So what is the next step? I did the Amazon payments account thing. I haven't gotten any e-mails or anything.

Well voting for the cover art was supposed to begin a couple of days ago but it sounds like Vic was busy designing five potential candidates to win the coveted spot. Supposedly, everyone who signed up will be sent an email Monday morning on preordering a voucher for the retail copies. No idea if that will face a Working Designs delay either.

UPDATE: Voting has officially gone live for the CoH2 cover art over at Gaijinworks' website.

What was previously announced as 3 choices for the cover art, it looks like you have a choice between 6 different front cover art works for the physical release. Furthermore, it looks like it won't be a dual-release launch for the digital download game and the physical + digital code bundle. The game will hit the Playstation Store first and until a timedate on when the games will be reached to us, the preorder sale is on a temporary hold. It shouldn't be too long, I hope. By the way, I chose C. Cover art D is currently in the lead with 33%.

Thanks for the notice on the live voting. I voted for C. (Was torn between A, C, and D).

98 votes in, D has taken the lead at 47% to C's 30%. All the others are single-digits at the moment.

I wrote them about this, reminding them of the disastrous Ni No Kuni debacle with Digital River, asking them to make sure everyone who pre-ordered a physical copy will be able to get one. I'm sure I'm not the only one. No reply yet, but hopefully the fact that the emails haven't been sent means they're thoroughly testing their ordering system.

EDIT: Oh, and I voted for cover "B". "D" was my second choice.

The PSP refuses to die, as Natsume has announced that they are localizing Mystic Chronicles, a Kemco RPG that goes by the name of Fantasy Chronicles on iOS. The PSP port cost only $7 when it was released in Japan, so hopefully, the US release will be cheap as well.

I've played a few of these kemco rpgs (eve of the genesis, symphony of eternity) on my android tablet. They're fairly short, run-of-the-mill rpgs with very linear storylines. Their fairly grindy rpgs (which I like). You could do worse for a $7 game, but it's not something you'd write home to the family about.

Just thought I'd share this message from GaijinWorks, in response to my asking about the physical Class of Heroes 2 and my concerns about not everyone who wants one being able to get one:

First, there's no Digital River fulfillment with this. That's a positive start for not getting things screwed up.

Secondly, we are preselling it, not pre-ordering it, so we will close the presales, then make as many as we have hard sales for. So if you've bought the voucher in the presale when we open it, you're guaranteed a copy!

Thanks for your interest, and watch for the purchase links to go live. They'll be open for about a week.

I LOL'd at the first paragraph.
