    Wow... that game looks wonderful. I like the Japanese version cover better.

    P.S. Does this game includes an anti-piracy check?

    Kinda expecting a very basic RPG experience, so I'll probably wait for another drought before getting too heavily into it. But the premise is really cool, and yeah, the graphics look good.

    Been waiting for this.

    Looks very good from the images.

    Hopefully this works on EDGE.

    No, it's the Japanese version Wizard of Oz (RIZ-OWD). Thanks for my answering question, Yuan!

    It's a gorgeous game at the very least, you HAVE to give it that much. I really enjoy the game, but it will be mixed among others. It's a standard RPG for the most part, but with an all-touch interface and a trackball moving system. I think elixirdream mentioned a dpad hack for the Japanese version, but i dunno if he will make one for the US release. It's not his responsibility or obligation. The touch screen controls work pretty well anyways.

    No problems on DSTT running the latest test kernal. Obviously I couldn't test pre-that kernal...

    So far I love the graphics and definitely like the tongue in cheek narrator/tutorial teacher informing you that your dog should be played with every now and again.

    It kind of reminds me of what My World My Way could be been with a bigger graphics/production budget looks-wise.

    I don't like the trackball moving system. It's actually hard to control the move speed and direction IMO. Anyone got a hack that enables navigation using the dpad? Thanks!

    When you get to the Emerald City, you can save with the wizard. Until then, there might be a quick save feature.
