So, the only question I have is: How likely is it that we'll actually see the game come over here? Because, it looks amazing, don't get me wrong, but since it's not being put out by a big publisher like SquareEnix or Atlas, it kinda raises doubts over whether it'll see the light of day overseas, even with all of those big names attached to it. Which would be a shame, because the game looks pretty good so far.

XSeed or Marvelous or whatever they're called these days are pretty good about getting obscure games out into the west (even if some of those games are obscure for a reason). 8-4 is amazing at whatever they do and this does seem like it might be something Nintendo would pick up.

I wouldn't count on Atlus to localize anything not SMT/Persona/Etrian Odyssey, and Squeenix barely even localizes their FF games anymore (let alone anything else).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Namco Bandai's not doing so bad either nowadays and there's also NISA. I think it's more a matter of when than if.

They publish other games as well, but Persona/MegaTen is doing really when I can imagine that's were they want to focus their limited resourches on. Still, doesn't mean there's zero chance...

I also think it's a matter of when rather than if.  I was thinking XSeed or someone would likely take it. 

So, who are people thinking of making their main character and who'll be his/her companions?  It feels like Pokemon where we're looking at early art of the starters and asking each other "who you gonna pick as your starter?"

Every time I new pokemon generation comes out people get excited about the starters (or excited about getting to complain about the starters) but like...

What was massively popular in the 1950s that nobody cares about today?

That's pokemon in seventy years.

I think my first playthrough will be the cliche amnesiac character looking for her memories (Bianca) as my lead. Followed by Owen and Filmia. I'm hoping Bianca will be support based, Owen will be the tank and Filmia will be crit based to make them balanced.

Depending on their classes one could potentially make an all female party. Bianca with Garnet (tank) and Eloise (mage).

It's really hard to decide without having the game in hand to view all of their attributes.

When given a choice of protagonist, I always pick the girl, but since I have multiple to choose from... I'll probably choose Garnet since she's not the type I would normally choose, so she should be interesting.  My next choice would probably be Meurs because his ancestors could communicate with the ancients and they probably harbor secrets in the game's world.  Not sure who I'd pick as my third. 

Either way, like I said, it's almost like trying to choose a starter Pokemon based purely on snap judgments.  Like, I don't think anyone expected Chespin to be as tanky as it was.

That's exactly why I'm picking him as my last playthrough. I feel like he is going to reveal most of the main story arc that the developers intended to put out

If Romancing SaGa 3 taught me anything its that the average looking girl is always the one most important to the plot.

Also how did you not assume that the Chestnut Pokemon was going to be a tough nut to crack (like Fortress's base form is that of a Pinecone, and its one of the tankiest Pokemon there is)?

Because it's a grass type and most folks naturally expect grass types to be anything but tanky.  Beacause it's all flowers, right?  That being said, yeah Torterra is a freakin' tank.

Also Venasaur and to a lesser extent Chikorita. Grass starters tend to veer either towards Speed (gens 3 and 5) or Defense/Sp. Defense (the rest).

So a ship trading system sounds pretty intuitive for streetpass and reminds me of suikoden 3's selling of spices and misc items for profit. Although they are different, it still brings out that merchant vibe that I really enjoyed in Suikoden 3.

And I love that the developer is bucking the trend and saying "no DLC, the game will be 100% complete right out of the box."  You don't see that very often these days. I like the idea of the game being the full monty right out of the box.
