    Hot dang.
    It took half a year for the first one to be localized, so I guess I'll just dig in the Japanese version.
    Hopefully it's better than the first one, probably will [​IMG]

    The first game was good but overrated imo. Very shallow in terms of equipment, classes, movesets and actual strategy needed to progress through the levels.
    Hopefully this game will be much deeper but atm I'm not interested as FFTactics A2 is right around the corner and it doesn't get much deeper than that!
    Will check this out when the inevitable US/EUR version comes though afaik it hasn't been dated yet.

    Anyone know Famitsu scores for this game? Usually a good indication of quality/progress from first game.

    Huh? Where'd you get that idea? To answer your question, no this game is not based on "japanese rape cartoons".

    Seeing as the first game got localized, I don't see how this game won't be. But that would take a couple of months before they even annouce there will be a localization.

    I could see that you either watched hentai anime or played too many hentai games.

    Yeesh... that's decent but not quite great. Regardless, I hope it gets localized here in the U.S.

    Yay more witches with big boobies!
    I think theres another series with witches with big boobies too [​IMG]

    actually luminous arc 1 wasnt a good game at all. Too much useless stuff sitting around and balance was all wrong.

    There's no rape from my memory but the game is of typical perverted, Jap. design, intended for young adult males so there're huge amounts of references to female characters' breasts. Lines more or less like:
    "Wow. Looks like that's not the only big things you have! [​IMG] "
    submissive Jap.: " [​IMG] "

    I liked the first one too, sure it was really cliche but I quite enjoyed the battles and the character designs were pretty.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OYba55LeII < Trailer makes it look rather impressive to me, of course we'll be waiting ages for the US version.
