Released Feb 16, 2018

 

I did not 'own' it either, nor do I remember this particular one. But the date is the reason why I added it. I usually sort by last 7 days and free. It might have been part of a digital purchase campaign for a limited time and now finally released to everybody?

I guess I haven't been keeping up but just realized Little Witch Academia is digital only. Why does the Seven Deadly Sins game and the Black Clover one get a physical release in the west but not this one? LWA is the only one that I thought had interesting gameplay/combat.

I'm one of the suckers who buy the $3 dynamic themes (with the 20% coupons at least...) I have all the Senran Kagura ones which I switch between from time to time, and yeah, they are awesome (but not $3 awesome...) 

 

Best themes I've used so far are the Horizon Zero Dawn (CE theme), Bloodborne (CE Guide), and The Witcher 3 (Free.) 

 

Right now I'm using the Persona 5 Haru one (which I also paid for the the P5 ones like a fool.)

The Bloodborne CE guide theme is one of the best. The dark background and the Hunters Dream playing is just a perfect fit.

I must have missed that one :(

 

I have been using the one orange lines theme rez I think?  either that or bit trip after the christmas one. Prior to that it was the ff12 theme and the rwby theme.  Love the rwby theme.  My mother and niece thinks it is a fish tank though xD

I don't think I've switched out of the Bloodborne one since that game came out. Everything else is too bright and flashing, I prefer the bland gray background and somber music, lol.

That and the Witcher ones are great, both in looks and usability.

 

Nier: Automata and Horizon: Zero Dawn ones are also good, but not as good.

I just use the KH1 theme you get from beating the game in the HD collection, it replaces the sound effects on the xmb (or whatever it's called on PS4) with the KH menu sound effects which makes me happy  :D/  

 

Actually like the 358/2 theme the most visually but it's a bright yellowish color and it burns my eyes so I can't use it. The KH1 theme on the other hand is mostly black.

Pretty much the same reason I put the Until Dawn one on my PS4 when I first got it and have never removed it.  Anything else just doesn't feel right.  I just got my brother a PS4 this past Christmas and every time I see him boot it up to the stock theme I just cringe a little. :lol:

The themes I use come from LE/CEs or digital pre-orders: Kiwami 1 & 2, Yakuza 6, Dragon's Crown Pro, Nioh, Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation, Blue Reflection artbook & LE themes, Atelier, FFXV, FFVII, Bloodborne, SAO, Horizon Zero Dawn, Nights of Azure 2 [JP], and a bunch more. 
 
I just pick whatever I fancy atm.

I bought the Megadimension Neptunia themes the moment they were sold and tend to swap them around. I mainly use Noire's since it's the most fitting with Neptune's 2nd most used while Blanc's from time to time and Vert's once in a blue moon. While I have so many other themes I never feel I can keep them around longer than a minute.

Hm-- only an LE is listed on the NIS store. Any indication that there will be a non-LE release?

 

I'm also interested in information on this as well if anyone has any.

Glad to finally see the official announcement. Enjoyed what little bit I played of the Japanese version, so I look forward to finally playing this in English.

This looks like your typical pandering-type of junk jrpg, but... so does Xenoblade 2.

 

I guess I'll give it the benefit of the doubt until reviews pop up :P. This was the one that was getting favorable impressions for a while, right?

Yeah, all games with Tony Taka art look like that. It's pretty much his trademark and I don't think he's capable of drawing something relatively normal.

I mostly use the Futaba theme from P5 atm.  But I also loved the Touhou Genso theme, the Atelier themes, and the FFX theme off the top of my head.  I wish the DQ theme that was on the JP psn had music. 

 

I'm kind of a sucker for buying themes too.  I've bought a bunch... Disgaea, the legacy PS2 one, Neptunia ones, some P5 ones that weren't free, AoT (which seemed really awesome at first, but the intense music got old fast lol), and a bunch of others. 

 

The PS2 one is awesome.  It has the iconic PS2 turning on sound, and  I really loved the techie side of how they pulled off the whole thing with the limitations of the theme software.  I won't bore you guys with the details, but they have a really awesome in depth video going over it all.  Naughty Dog even got involved to help pull it off.

I've been wanting to play a Shining game since the PS2 days. I hope this is a good one. The Tony Taka art is OK for the most part, though he seems to reuse or use similar faces a lot. The good thing is if you collect a Tony Taka type figure, you likely don't need another haha. I got the Max Factory Luka with his art style. Enough for me. Thanks Sega for finally bringing this series here along with the Yakuza titles. Good times we are in right now.

 

On the subject of themes I sometimes play around and change around the free ones that become available on PSN. I currently use the PS2 legacy theme on my PS4. I have a tried a few, but sometimes the theme being too bright or loud gets to me. Simplicity is beautiful usually for me.

I’m really glad this is finally getting localized. I’ve been wanting to play this game since it came out on the PS3. I’m really hoping they do a physical release too.

Now if we could just get Sega to localize Phantasy Star Online 2.

You know there's been 2 Story of Seasons released, right? They're the real Harvest Moons, not the in-name-only one this one is.

As an Xbox One owner, I'm beyond ecstatic to see Xbox support! Never thought I'd see the day where I would see a Falcom game on Xbox, lol. 

Both will be Day 1 purchases for me.
