    Anyone have it? Anyone know if a translation is happening? PRAY FOR LOCALIZATION.

    EDIT: Removed video since it's now added to the OP.

    I'm not exactly hopeful for a localizations and its certainly nothing I'd personally pick up instantly. If I pirated for the system I'd get it in a heartbeat.

    I was wondering if it was just a similar name, or if it was actually somewhat related to Ragnarok Online.

    ...and then I saw, and heard, the porings.
    I lol'd.

    I'd buy it day one just for porings if it was localized.

    This game sucks imo...it's like a gimp'ed version of PSO / MH for me. controls not clunky but it's a little awkward...demo is up on JP store if you want to try it out.

    Are you serious?

    This looks like the result of "HD", "Monster Hunter", "Dragon Quest Slime" and "Ragnarok" foursome, how does this not validate a purchase? I am dissapoint in you.

    The music sounds nice too, definatelly my sort of game.

    less like MH , its like they only really took some menu like stuff from it like the ranks/quest hub setup/hp/stamina bar but the rest is flat out PSO...and it looks less apealing after the demo

    So I also found out that this game will have local 4 player co-op. I hope it has online 4 player co-op and this will be awesome.

    I've only really played Monster Hunter and I certainly wouldn't say I'd die for it. It's fun now and then but I certainly wouldn't put it as my killer app for anything.

    Oh no, definatelly not. Monster Hunter is one of those games where you play Single Player to learn the ropes and test stuff out and then immediatelly turn on Multi since Single Player gameplay is mundane, sometimes even boring and definatelly frustrating.

    Seeing that this looks like Monster Hunter crossed with the more fast-paced Phantasy Star and more "complex" Ragnarok (as far as stats go) it may have fixed many issues with this type of gameplay. It's not a "unique" approach to the style like Lord of Arcana, but it's definatelly worth a try. I also like the general graphics style.

    I have it and tried it out on my friend's Vita, it's can get really hard, really fast, button mashing will get you killed 9/10, bosses are great and quests are ok, this will be 100x better when online is up though. I reccommend if you are getting this wait until a week before the online patch is released.

    In monster hunter, you CAN'T LOCK ON TO A TARGET. that's what makes the gameplay more engaging.
    no crosshairs whatsoever.

    this one can lock on to a target. looks like Gods Eater. but games like these i like. lol

    thats probably a better comparison (God Eater) though after playing the demo im still not super impressed, which sucks because having a PSO/GE/MH game right away on the vita to convince my buddys to get would have been awesome. For now we will stick to a mostly english patched MHP3rd.

    I asked this on gamespot...but then realized gamespot is full of morons.

    Is there any way to digitally buy this game assuming I have my North American PSN tied to my Vita?

    I'm going to guess no unless it's the USA version or you tie a different, Japanese account to your Vita.
