This will probably get you even more excited then. Also the article causally mentioned that it has both on-line and off-line play, which brings its own potential awesomeness.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I'll see how it goes. The screenshots look good, but the description made it sound really boring.

I love the artwork and this will end up being one of my favorite PSP games.

Will this even come to USA?

I don't have any basis but I have a feeling we'll stop seeing new releases here

I agree, we saw the same type of onslaught from the snes - n64 transition. No love for a LOT of rpgs that were too close to the death of snes to come over here.

And unlike the SNES (or PS1 and PS2) the PSP isn't pulling strong still in software sales. ON THE OTHER HAND none of those had the digital distribution method, or even plans to allow the prior gen games to be released and upgraded for the new console, so if retail is out of the question for a lot of titles then at least maybe they'll go and put them on the PSN, or release them as VITA games instead (and probably give the system an unusually strong first year).

you have a good point Eusis, especially since the Vita doesn't use the UMD.

It'd be sweet if the stars lined up like that, late-gen PSP games flocking over to the Vita.

Of course that'd suck for those who can't afford a new system.

Between never getting them at all or having to get a new system for them I'd take the latter, at worst you wait a few more years.

Only having the Vita memory card version at retail might make sense, but even if they go that route there is no reason not to have it on the PSN.  Especially since all Vita games are supposed to have PSN versions.

All Vita games are stated to have simultaneous retail/digital releases, though I guess they could always make it a Vita-exclusive anyway. Seems more likely in the case of something like Type-0.

I'll believe it when I see the Growlanser games on the PSN.

Until then, WHERE'S GROWLANSERS DAMMIT!?! (Also VC3?)

There's always certain cases where the publisher simply wouldn't care to localize a game unless there were a guranteed million sales, and I'm thinking Growlanser's one of those (disappointingly, although I can live). VC might be JUST a big enough deal for Sega, plus they might be able to both gain back good will from their niche fans (as much as you can get anyway) while getting a strong foot in the door for the Vita if they just put it there.

Forget this game and VC3 (and Growlanser, hahahahahaha...oh wait, you were serious...), we might not even get Type-0.  The PSP is officially dead in the west...

That is preposterously pessimistic, I take "unsure" to mean more "We aren't really sure just how we'll release this in the west" than "we don't know if we even will". I'm half expecting either a PSVita launch-period title or even a console release; given the size of the game the latter definitely seems doable though I'd prefer a portable release given that's what it's designed around.

Though if they seriously do skip it entirely then... yeah, JRPGs really are about dead outside of Japan, if not entirely, but that just doesn't seem likely.
