    "Is it just me or does it give off a very Death Note-ish vibe? The ominous background music…the close-up of the girl’s face and mouth (or was that a guy?) as veins sprouted all over it. The tagline at the end. Heck, even the art looks like Takeshi Obata’s to me.

    It was interesting to hear that Ignition Entertainment was going to be localizing and publishing Lux Pain in North America, and that they were playing it safe and staying true to the Japanese script by keeping all the original names.

    I fully expected Marvelous or XSEED to pick it up, so I was a little wary when I heard that Ignition - a company very new to the localization scene - was going to take ahold of the reins. I figured I might end up having to import the Rising Star release from Europe.

    Well, thankfully, it looks like there’s no need for that.

    Congratulations, guys. I’m sold. Give your marketing department a pat on the back."

    I can't wait for this to come out in English, I remember seeing the screen shots (in ign) and thinking that the game looked similar to Miteha Ikenai. I heard that this was heavy in jap text so decided to wait for the E/U release. Comes out a week before gauntlet as well (if Gauntlet comes out on April fools day, that is!).

    The trailer makes me think of resident evil with the locations reminding me of Doki Doki Majo Shinpan! Would be interesting if it was, rubbing zombies up the wrong way! [​IMG]

    did a quick research, turns out that the guy who voiced Yagami Light in Death Note, voiced the main character in this game
    LUX-PAIN (VG) as Atsuki Saijo = main char
    Death Note (TV) as Light Yagami

    probably the same studio did the animation ? and that's y they picked the same actor ?

    It definitely seems to be giving Death Note-ish vibes, but is that really a bad thing? [​IMG]

    Hope to see more of this game soon.. Any other trailers or stuff out?
