    About Black Rock Shooter The Game
    Black Rock Shooter The Game has been generating all kinds of buzz among fans for its appealing character designs from the renowned artist Huke, and later on given voice by the ever-popular MikuHatsune. What began as a single character design has now evolved into a PlayStation®Portable title.
    Story
    2032 AD—Earth has been ruthlessly assaulted by extraterrestrials, and nineteen years of nonstop battle now threaten the very existence of humanity. The last hope for human survival is BRS, a heroine created solely to save planet Earth; she is the ultimate battle android. But when she is awakened to end the battle once and for all, there are only twelve human beings left on Earth…[/p]Source

    The OVA was rubbish, the Anime will likely be rubbish but this game looks amazing.

    Amazingly rubbish. Repetitive to the nth degree....

    Suppose it's good news but it won't sell.

    Dunno, there's been some Hatsune Miku marketing going on in America and if NIS advertises this well along side Miku, I'd think they'll get to the profit mark.

    The OVA is below average, don't ask me why a TV anime was made for the NoitaminA block, bad choice, but the game is good and a recommended buy.

    I have the Japanese version, the missions are easy to understand and the gameplay is intense, only complaint is lack of free movement. It's moderate in difficulty, the motorbike events can get difficult though. It's a pretty decent ARPG despite the graphics being a bit average. You can repeat missions as much as you want to gain levels, items, and records.

    Hmm, seems pretty cool. I'll get it once it's released.

    If I ever buy a PSP, this is definitely going into my library right next to any Miku Hatsune games I decide to import. I love Black Rock Shooter, and the OVA wasn't enough for me.

    Couldn't care less for Hatsune Miku (I seriously hate that annoying voice) but this game looks decent.

    Still, the PSP is dead.

    In the west, yes. In Japan... not even close. It's the dominate portable around there.

    Game looks great, it could give me a reason to pick up my psp again, just hope they wont mess with the voice acting or anything. And @slyakin, i'm not often a fnan of how the voice soinds either, but you have to admit, some of the songs are quite good. I've been listening to some covers from nico nico douga, and they're quite good. As for how well this will do in the US, I'm not quite sure. I know many people who will just look at the cover, and if it's anything even vaguely anime looking, then they'll hate it.
