Akai Katana port this soon. Amazing.

Maybe I should rethink about buying the NTSC-J system.

Tidbit: when you met the new boss Nazuna, she says (in Japanese) "I'm going to chop your body to pieces!". Sounds like a nice gal.

Nazuna sounds like my kind of girl. I came for the tits, and stayed for a bit of sauciness.
Stoked for this port, looks very nicely packaged so far, particularly the selection menus which aren't the sparse lists of ports previous.

This is probably the most marketable Cave release yet. It'd be stupid not to localize this. I'm willing to wait.

ouch. their games keep going up in price! $85 USD for the SE!? Or maybe that's just our money losing even more of its value.

The pricing is exactly the same as DFK 1.5.  Also, the SE is priced the same as Futari's, and the LE is less expensive.

It wouldn't hurt to goto the Cave Facebook or Twitter and mention that you'd enjoy being able to play the game on an NA region console. I'm sure Cave will be looking to have this (as well as DFK) published overseas by either Aksys or another company, but it can't hurt to express interest.

I paid 75 for both DFK 1.5 and futari. I guess I just assumed those were the original/stock prices since that was the same price I saw available through multiple retailers. I did however pay 85 for my MMP/PS SE preorder.

regardless, I'm very curious to see how the mechanics work in this game since I'm having some trouble figuring out what's going on  :o

Not yet. It's probably a soundtrack CD again, but I hope they'll do something a bit more creative.

I really like the soundtrack for this game.

Maybe I'll buy my first LE once NCSX opens pre-order

It will come bundled with a ?Shin mode? music soundtrack CD, in a box with a different, new cover made by the game?s artist.

Well, shit. Totally expected but still a bit disappointing. I think they should be a bit more creative with this stuff.

This why I never buy the LEs. You're basically paying an extra $40 for a game soundtrack, a goofy box (that's almost always not as nice as the SE box art), and a different disc art (MMP/PS lacked the last two).

Yep. ESPgaluda II was the worst offender. The SE box art was one of the most gorgeous pieces I've ever seen, an absolute gem in my collection, and then the LE was... two (one) character(s) standing there.

The SE Espgaluda II is one of the best deals around. You get a soundtrack CD inside the case, awesome cover art, and more game modes on one disc than any other Japanese X360 Cave release.

No kidding. I'll probably settle with SE this time around.

I think I'll go for the SE.

Anyone notice this clip going up on YouTube? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnRw3G8-qI0&feature=player_profilepage

The description has DLC in it. Is this the limited "shop edition" as a DLC?

I've seen that movie on NicoNico a few days ago, but it's only a showcase of the voice acting DLC compared to the regular game.

The description says it's a first print bonus.

And yes, the video shows the difference if you have it or not. I prefer voiced. :righton:
