Just finished the first one!! while I'm new to the franchise, it reminded me a lot of "shining force", which I played as a kid. Classes, and even the "promote at 20" thing. ANyway, pissed me off though that 1 character died in my storyline(or rather 2 but one is mandatory) Merric, fucking used that mage through the whole game and kicked-ass and then he died on the last mission?!! Anyway, when is it coming? heard its on its way to Japan, and also, wtf is it? I mean, I heard its a sequel once, but also that its a remake of the first or something?
