Nice...physical Sonic Mania...FINALLY.  A year late but at least its coming.  Will have to get the PS4 version to put in my PS4 CE, and the Switch version for the heck of it.

Sonic Mania already had a retail release, or is it actually going to come with more than a code this time?

 

Here's a link to the free character edit for MHW btw: https://store.playst...HARAREMAKE00001

Indiegala is having The Anime Heaven Bundle which has some mediocre VNs. I only mention it because it has Libra of the Vampire Princess: Lycoris & Aoi in "The Promise" PLUS Iris in "Homeworld" which I am mildly interested in which came out last year, for $4.49 during the early purchase price. Price will go up in 10 hours.

Also worth pointing out. Its normally priced at $39.99 on Steam, with lowest historical sale price at $23.99. So the bundle is really good value, if anyone is interested in Libra of the Vampire Princess. 

You're confusing two games. Libra of the Vampire Princess is $40 on Steam and a full VN. The one in this bundle is a prequel kinetic novel that is $16 on Steam and supposedly not much content. I would have bought the bundle if it had the actual VN.

Just try it and see if you may like the main game. They are currently doing a main route re translation that is going at a glacial rate. Maybe by that time it comes out it will be bundled.

Yeah I'll give it a try sooner or later. Still have other VNs to play first.

Still a good price for the prequel. Plus Osozaki Late Blooming - First looks decent.

Yeah, that looks decent as well. I just dislike spreading false information, so that is on me.

Sonic Mania is getting a retail release in Summer 2018.

Sonic Mania Plus

Glad I waited and didn't buy the digital version. I love the reversible cover.

They shouldve added the 4 Main Girls into the retail game, not split half of them as DLC. It's laughable only 4 of the RWBY Cast are in the game compared to the overall roster of 40 Characters. >.>

Now I just need a CE announcement. A nice steelbook that goes well with the recent remaster would be a nice start.


JPN VC1 CE BNIB was the best thing i ever paid for at $260 with shipping. Edelweiss tank and Alicia figure!

That’s cool they are localizing Kiwami 2. Now I just need to actually play through 0 and Kiwami. The backlog is real right now.

Awesome. Yakuza 2 was one of the few I didn't play...well haven't played 5 yet either. I don't own 2 though. Great news!

Great to see Kiwami 2 coming, with what sounds like some awesome additions. Getting another steelbook is great too, but I'm a bit hesitant to pre-order it considering you can still get the first game, steel book and all, for $20 ($16 w/ GCU).

 

Wouldn't mind 0-2 myself.

It was such a hassle to get a non Steelbook version of Kiwami. I don't want to deal with that again! Lol

The Kiwami 2 steelbook looks radical though

Need Kiwami 3 and 4. And a PS4 port of 5 now :P

i probably wouldn't get kiwami 3 or 4 since i have them physical on ps3. Yakuza 5 would be a maybe since i played it digital already, so ut would be just for collective purposes.

I hope that kiwami 3 does get made since it was the last game to cut content when brought over (afaik).

If they do Kiwami 3 with all the content that was removed from the western release of Y3 I'd probably buy it again.

 

I'd probably buy it again anyway to be honest.

I just think it would be neat to have all of Yakuza on PS4.

They should make Ishin remaster instead (I already imported it, but will buy it again)
