Just so I'm clear, this will not run PSN software right? It's not a PSP Go with a built in phone, it's something new. I couldn't play Crimson Gem Saga or Tactics Ogre on it, just whatever getss released for that platform. That was my understanding based on what I saw.

It's still useless in my book, for now. Same with the 3ds. Pointless until something I actually want to play drops on it (Zelda + Master Quest for the win)

Back on topic, what makes this game so great? I haven't seen anything too original about it.

I just think it's a game that does everything or almost everything very well. According to people who know japanese, it has a great story, well-developed world, and great characters, it has an endearing art/graphics style, the music is charming and fantastic, and the gameplay is fun. I've played up to a certain point in the Japanese PC version, and without being able to understand Japanese, I still found it a very fun, enjoyable game. If you like classic JRPGs, then you'll probably enjoy this game.

Thought that some of you might find it interesting - Xseed just posted this on their facebook page:

"Phew...you guys love your free swag. Finally finished going through all the e-mails from the latest pre-order promotion, thanks to everyone that participated. We can't respond to each and every e-mail personally, but if you haven't heard back from us by now then that means all your materials were in order and you're all set. Shipments going out later this week, expect them to start arriving next week."

lol. I was wondering what that thing was. And the game is getting an anime? Cool. I hope it's good.

Crap, is it too late now to send Xseed your pre-order receipt to get something free?

I think I'm one of the few people who actually enjoyed the Gagharv Trilogy when it came out stateside. Of course, that was mostly for the music, and I didn't even know about all the changes until way afterward. I'm so happy this trilogy is finally coming out too. I've been waiting so many years to play it, and after seeing how XSeed handled Ys, I can't wait!

Been reading up on that blog link...interesting that this game is coming out now...at the end of the psp's life cycle. I mean it's a bit strange that the first game in a trilogy is coming out this late in a console's life. Still, I have doubts that we'll actually even see the other 2 chapters released. If they do get released I don't think it'll be on the psp...might be on the psp 2.

Well, the best games usually come out in the end of a console lifespan (look at Radiant Historia for DS), so I'd say it's a good sign! :P

Good point...With the PS1 I think Final Fantasty IX arrived late in its run. The thing is though I could see if chapter 2 was maybe 6 months behind 1 and then ch. 3 another 6 months or so out. I don't think chapter 2 or 3 are even remotely on the radar anywhere. My guess is Chapter 2 and 3 will go to the NGP if they come out at all.

I thought they had made some kind of deal to make sure all three of the trilogy were released. I know the PSP's days are about up, but I was hoping it might linger for a bit like the PS2. Of course, it was never as popular, but I can dream.

Zero no Kiseki, on the other hand, I have no clue about.

Yeah, the potential problem is the fact the PSP never had the PS2's momentum, and thus may not be able to thrive at retail for an ungodly amount of time. Maybe they'll surprise there, or at least retailers like Amazon and GameStop will still stock the games online and sell them while digital versions get put up on the PSN, Hell, the fact Trails 3 and Zero are both 1 UMD at least ensure the PSN's still a route if Trails 2 can still hit retail but not those two.

Also, I remember reading somewhere that Xseed definitely want to or will try to bring out the latter releases, so maybe there's still hope for at least PSN releases for them.

You could hold out hope that the success of Recettear convinces Falcom to allow Steam releases of these games with translations. Possibly other publishers too, but it doesn't seem there is much in regards to PC development in Japan that isn't visual novels/porn BUT Falcom's output... which is now gone.

By the way: I haven't received any replies myself on the pre-order thing. Kinda want that Lunar CD since I got the DL version on sale and it's the only thing in the package I wanted anyway.

Digital DL is the way to go, especially going Steam route is the way to go.  Cut out the manufacturing costs.  Recettear is a huge success for a small indie company.  Falcom/Xseed should definitely work something out with Steam to deliver their games that is already on PC to Steam.  Steam has a huge customer base in the tens of millions, it would be foolish not to take advantage of that.  With PSP's weak marketing momentum, as someone mention earlier, I don't know how it makes budiness sense to only bring a game and only produce 50k copies at most.

Personally, I could not care less about physical/LE DVD packaging.

Found some tibit info:

OMG man, if the people that brought Recettear here had their hands on Falcom, we probably could have been seeing PC versions of Trails and YS in the US by now!   :(

Edit:
Just realize how old the links were. I'm so slow hohohoh  ^o^

I started to listen to a little bit of the soundtrack for this title and it seems pretty good. At first, I was on the fence but after a couple listens I have to say it is pretty good. The one battle track was upbeat and but yet fast like a battle track should be. Most town themes are typical but memorable.

Looking forward to the Limited Edition...for only $10 more the soundtrack alone makes it worth it considering to import the entire soundtrack would be significantly more.

I should note that Ys 1 & 2 have become hard to find as of late. Gamestop and Amazon are your only bets since nobody else really even carries PSP games anymore save for a few generic titles and KH:BbS.

Thankfully, there's always the VC option for the TurboCD port and it's excellent sound quality if you really want to play those games.
