The import came in the other day and I have been messing it with it since. I really enjoyed Wild ARMs 4 and the game seems to borrow a lot from it. I really wish they would of kept the anime intro but I guess you can't have everything. Hopefully this comes over as timely as the fourth game did unlike alter code F which barely made it to the US. Those interested I ripped the intro and uploaded it on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkYu8qmDzPY

If anybody would like the opening song or a higher quality intro just say so.

More Wild ARMs! <:

No US publisher has even been named for Vth Vanguard, so it's unlikely we'll get as swift a release as what XSEED did with 4. Though, if it does come to the US, I hope XSEED is the one that does it. They did an excellent job with WA4, as they also did with Shadow Hearts: FTNW.

I've listened to the opening single from Nana Mizuki, I like it (expect a soundtrack review). You should consider offering up an import reader review for the site if the game really tickles your fancy.

FMV's pretty much dying from games. While not a big deal for CGI as graphics are really catching up with that, I do find it a shame to not get fancy nice quality anime or other such animated movies.

Yeah, I wish it had an anime too.

I definitely want XSeed to pick the game up, and I feel it's highly likely they will.  I'll definitely buy it on release.

They took away the usual good music that goes with the opening too. I can't say it's not trying, it's just not working.

Ah, so XSeed is still around?  I haven't heard from them in a while so I got worried.  Anyways, I'm a Wild Arms junkie and will certain pick it up if/when it hits the states.

They have Vahalla Knights coming for the PSP, so they appear to still be around, and WA4, and SH:FTNW sold well enough for them to justify thier continued existence.  So it possible.

Meh, dunno if i'll buy this game even if it ever does come out in Europe. I think WA3's absurdly long lifespan has put me off Wild Arms - though it still remains one of my favourite rpgs on ps2. Do all WA games have 100+ hours of game time?

Wild Arms 3 isn't supposed to last 100+ hours.

Also: Why does the main character punch things with his guns?

wild arms 3 is made artificially longer because of the stupid search system. wild arms 4 travel plays out more like FFX

I played the game for a while, so let me give some impressions.

Graphics: I'll say one thing, the character models are absolutely gorgeous. They are outrageously detailed and, combined with their awesome designs, look positively wonderful. Top notch stuff here. Unfortunately, NPC characters don't have nearly the same amount of detail, and the environments are sort of bland, with the world map being the worst offender.

Sound: The music is great. The battle themes are catchy and well composed. Some of the voices grate my nerves though.

Story: Haven't seen much of it yet, but God, Dean gets on my nerves so much. Rebecca and Avril are freaking awesome though.

Gameplay: I love it, I love it, I love it. It's a refinement of WA4's hex system, so anybody who remotely enjoyed that game will absolutely love this one. Also, there are LOTS of cameos of characters from previous games. I've seen screens for Rudy, Emma, Ashley, Lilka, Brad, Knight Blazer, Jet, Clive, among others. They also have hidden costumes for the main characters for some cameos; two for each, and three for Dean. Avril gets on for Anastasia! I think I'm in love.

I loved WA4's gameplay far more than I expected so if WA5 is like that but better, it's a must-have for me.
