Wow, nice.

Are we going to see any improvements over the Japanese release? After all, the playing field for online games is quite different over here.

Dear Square Enix – THIS is why you can shove FFXIII.

Can’t friggin’ wait!!! Loving Cross Edge right now and looking forward to playing WKC next. Day 1 buy for me. Will we be getting a release date at E3?

Any way you could check up on SEs PS3 release of The Last Remnant? Keep bugging them for us please. Let them know that we haven’t forgotten.

+ MADARAmagekyo on May 28th, 2009 at 2:47 pm said:

I prefer both of the trailers downloadable from the Japanese PS Store. Still, it’s looking like a good game. Level 5 has a solid history with RPG’s.

It’ll be nice having it a true PS3 exclusive after the recent Eternal Sonata, Tales of Vesperia, and Last Remnant debacles.

I think the only thing holding this game back now is the “Japanese” approach (read:not good) to online gameplay. If they can streamline the process to get people into a game and include voice chat then I will strongly consider buying the game. I think Sony realizes this, it’s just a matter of devoting resources to make sure it happens. If they don’t, the game will get trashed in America over the online.

There was an interview with Tsubasa Inaba and he said that the Japanese voice over might be something they would add to the North American release of the game.
Is that happening?

PS3 60gig + PSP FTW!

White Knight Chronicles
Demon’s Souls
Valkyria Chronicles
Persona 4
Disagae 3
Jeanne D’Arc
Folklore

Absolutely amazing series of games from Sony,Atlus,Level 5, Nippon Ichi, From Software, and Sega this past couple of years.

Don’t give a damn that Wada has destroyed Square Enix anymore.

Level 5 stepping up to take the crown while SE sinks off into their whore out to the highest bidder crapulance.

I have to agree with ppbobby.

I don’t think there has been an JRPG character with a beard.

Let’s keep those JRPGs rolling Sony! Up next Zill Oll – not once have we been graced with one of this series’ magnificent titles in the West! Atelier Rorona! Last Rebellion! Trinity Universe! Possibly a release date for Vesperia in the U.S. (at E3, I wager). And… Persona 5! Hopefully Money Bags Mgee (you know who I’m talking about) doesn’t grab this one.

What a terrific year to be a JRPG lover/ PS3 owner.

Btw, I’ve already played and adored Demon’s Souls to death. Anyone who considers themselves a JRPG fan NEEDS to pick up that title (imported myself, and worth the 200% markup).

I’m very excited for this game! I’ve been waiting for it for such a long time!!

Personally I didn’t like the trailer though. I don’t know whats up with everyone Americanizing JRPG trailers with dramatic music. Personally, I’d rather enjoy the original japanese music that went with the trailer, the music makes it something that it wasn’t originally intended to be.

Is there text chat in the game like Metal Gear Online or LittleBigPlanet?

*sits down, all i want now is a response from Namco to bring Tales of Vesperia PS3 to USA market*

and also Thanx Lvl5 for this awsome game! PS3 really needed something like this!

mhhh you should show off more the big environments in the trailers. That is imo the part, where WKC shines, graphics-wise.


44

+ Christian399 on May 28th, 2009 at 3:04 pm said:

And as already intimated in a few of the above posts, after watching that trailer, the following scenario should ensue.

Square Enix will head to Level 5′s headquarters, weeping with shame, beg forgiveness for their sins (Infinite Undiscovery, Last Remnant and SO: 4) and then commit glorious seppoku at their doorstep for the good of humanity.

Level 5 will then take the JRPG crown from their body and wear it, deservedly, and with pride. And shortly thereafter Dark Cloud 3 will be released in the U.S.. (I can dream can’t I? :) )

Looks Good! its been awhile since ive seen such story telling in a game. Children are the best protagonists. Classic story arc, children are innocent and pure and adults are corrupt. Looking forward to this one. Hopfully more previews to come?

will we be getting any making of content or interviews on the PSN for this game any time soon?

Definitely a day one buy for me though, been waiting a long time for this title. Just hope a few of my friends jump on with this game for the online component. I hate playing with random people.

I’m also with #42 We need to hear from namco on Tales of Vesperia in the US for PS3.

i just would like to know what kind of rpg is this? is this a dungeon crawler?? or just a normal rpg in which you can go in to towns and what have you??

another thing,i have seen and heard the japanese song or opening of this game and i to tell you the truth it blew it me away!

because the song sounded so epic!

so, my last question is will the original japanese song be included in to this game and what made you guys cut it out from the trailers??thanks
