    This looked pretty good from screens... Wonder if it's worth trying out.

    *would have to kill other games to check this one out.* [​IMG]

    This is kinda strange..first I heard of it was from Famitsu a few days ago. Now it's out already? The website says the official date is the 25th so I guess it's not a leak. Surprising.

    Anything published by Nintendo is worthy of my attention, but RPG + Japanese, usually = futility. [​IMG] And since Nintendo hasn't exactly rushed to bring us Soma Bringer, I'm not gonna look forward to seeing this game localized anytime soon.

    This is a huge game with huge budget with two companies and anime cutscenes, its the biggest new RPG for the DS well until late summer when Sega release World Destruction.

    Yes the last two were released on the SNES and were so amazing for the time with the last one having a special cartridge 24 MEGABYTE this was big deal at that time,
    luminous ARK and Yume Niko doesn't work on my R4 with the latest update, I have a feeling this will not too.

    I've had no trouble so far.

    Damn amazingly well animated for a DS game. Probably the best 2D animation I've seen on the system, short of Castlevania series' running animations.
    This is what Golden Sun DS should look like, minus a bit of polish on the sprite scaling.

    It's probably playable with a guide,but it will be a fair while before a guide comes out.

    No, really, no guide necessary. The game explains everything with very long, simple, unskippable, mostly visual tutorials, and other than that, you just run around doing stuff. This is about as easy as an RPG gets.

    I may have to get this considering the very slim chance it'll actually come out in English. =\
