    Your mom's basement.
    I hope they include the SNES original as a bonus!

    Why would I or would I not be getting it?

    Because it is a port of a remake of a remake? Who cares.

    I was never talking about getting it or not, I was only stating that it having not been officially released outside of Japan the first time around does not change the fact that it is a port of a remake of a remake.

    The goalpost remains unmoved.

    This makes me so happy. Although I'm more excited for SO2 that's likely to follow.

    Dunno if I'll play these on switch. Already have them on my Vita, which I kinda prefer. Might grab it on PS4, though! (Depending on price...)

    Rendered at a higher res, I assume 1080p and cleaned up

    The art reminds me of the Trails in the sky series, which I very much like.

    Or, another port of another PSP game. Seems really popular and timely these days considering how many PSP batteries are biting the dust for good I've heard about.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I think the first three games may have been fine (with 3 maybe being the peak of the series? Couldn't say for sure), but I know the 4th and 5th game bombed critically.

    Also, Tales of Phantasia's best played on the PS1 with that one Tales fansite translation, though I'm sure you'd be fine with Gemini's (God bless this man and his work on the Resident Evil 1.5 restoration based on that leak from Team IGAS six years ago) translation. GBA version's the worst one from what I've heard!

    It really is a shame the only official international release of ToP is the GBA version. The graphics are arguably better than on SNES, but the music samples are bad and the controls absolutely kill it. The PS1 version is definitely the way to go in my experience, though I've never actually seen the PSP release in action. It's just the PS1 version in widescreen I assume?

    I don't honestly know, but in the age of the Switch, I would say the PSP version, if it is a port, the only thing going for it is widescreen and the lack of a translation since I'm sure it's not like Eternal Punishment PSP where it has more sidequests and a sidestory starring the main character of Persona 2 Innocent Sin in addition to some things being more streamlined. (yeah, there's two Persona 2's, Innocent Sin is the first with Eternal Punishment being the sequel, or the Disc 2 of the game if I'm gonna be honest, as IS' ending is VERY sequelbait, not to go into specifics!)

    If anything, I'd rather see the Yakuza games for PSP (both of them, work is being done on the first, but I'd love to see the second get translated after) fan translated next, though who knows, they may do an up-port of those games and finally localize the Kenzan! and Ishin! games. PS3 remasters on PC and PS4 first, though!

    I'm looking forward to Switch ROM hackers making the uncensored undub of this.

    Unless this version has dual audio *shrug* we don't know if it doesn't.

    sweet, looking forward to this, hoping they release the 2nd version as well (and maybe the 3rd)
    the 3 first SO titles are the best ones.

    I'm torn on this, I mean i enjoyed it on the PSP a pretty fair amount, but as for this i'll need to see more than just a teaser picture before i can make a hard decision on if i want this or not.
