    Here is to hoping this is better than the first. The first game was too much of a Pokemon clone for me to stay interested.

    The major thing that bugs me is the addition of different size monsters...so your favorite monster may take up 2 or even all 3 spaces this time around,basically you can have 3 size 1 monsters,one size 2 monster and a size 1 or one monster that is size 3,of course bigger monsters come with perks like size 2 monsters can have 4 skills and size 3 monsters can have 5 skills,there are other advantages such as bigger monsters do more damage to smaller ones and if I remember right size 3 monsters attacks target all opp. monsters...

    Wow! This sucks... [​IMG]

    I thinks there added something about the games plus corrected translation and make very closely with Pro version.

    Theres alot separating the vanilla and pro versions.
    Vanilla: Level caps, 300 monsters...
    Pro:MUCH higher level caps, 500 monsters, more areas to explore and fixed game mechanics.

    Ive been following a translation of the Pro version at Dragons Den. Right now the team has alot translated, but they are waiting for a few months while the US release gets here. Depending on which version it actually is, they will translate the rest (hopfully) and we will have a pro version regardless of the actual release.

    Personally im peeing my pants waiting for this. I LOVED the first one and i cant wait for another one. I would be ok with just the vanilla version, but after i saw the better Pro version, i MUST have the pro version.

    The only thing keeping me hyped about this game is i'll actually be able to understand the story this time around...

    Interesting. I'll have to look up skillsets and junk before I judge, but it sounds like a decent system for variation. I think I'd generally stick with either thee small monsters.

    Sad for the delay, though.

    If this is true I'll be pretty happy. It should be a good game judging from how people are saying it's better than the first one.

    Based on what you have said, I'm almost 100% positive that the version we are getting is Vanilla (NOT Pro). Here is what I got in my email today:

    [​IMG]

    It says "Over 300 monsters". If it were the Pro version, then wouldn't they say "Over 500 monsters"?

    Maybe they want to see what the sales for this game are like, and if they are good, then also do the Pro version?

    Well, so far the game is pretty fun. [​IMG]
    US version is Multi5 - that makes me very happy.
