I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Oh geez, and I just spent $40 on the PSX version just last month...though I already owned the PSP version, too...anyways, sounds like a good way to get players up to speed for the new game, at least. I wonder if there will be any enhancements over the PSP version?

I missed this both times around. It's the only numbered entry I haven't played. God yes, I'm happy.

Is it still going to have the garbage art? Though I have to say with the 1 remake it was within the realms of an acceptable sacrifice.

Just a liiiiittle bit cheeky that this is likely the reason the PSP game wasn't up on PSN...I guess if it's suitably enhanced it's not such a big deal. I wouldn't mind playing it again.

Fuck yes! This is extremely welcome news! More classic RPG love for my Vita!
I'm the Dark Souls of Xeno-everything and FFXII. YES, I CAN BE BOTH.

Wait, Vita AND PS4???? What is this madness??

Ok. I said I was done with JRPGs for awhile. I also said I was certainly done falling prey to the allure of "nostalgia value" but they got me. Day 1 digital for me here. I've wanted to replay this for like, 15 years now.

EDIT: You guys do think its safe to assume this will see western release too, right??? I mean they wouldn't dangle an already localized treat in our face like this and NOT pony over the biscuit would they?????

In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

With SO5 confirmed to arrive in the west next year, I think this is all but guaranteed. Hope it's cross buy! But seeing as it's a Japanese dev, it probably won't be.

Yeah, it's usually just American companies that do cross-buy, since they believe in freedom. 

....or rather, it's usually indie devs who need to make their pixelated Terraria clone seem like as good a value as possible while still making money within the slim margins usually seen in the gaming industry.



On a side note: is it really bad that when I looked at the American flag gif, it took me three tries to recall the correct anthem, despite living in the US my entire life? XP

tries

I don't know why, but I'm sad-laughing that Canada's anthem fell on the word "tries". xD
