Yakuza HD collection is that coming out over here? How come Tales of xillia 2 out in Japan and we havent even got 1 yet.

Because the Tales Of games are hugely popular in Japan? We don't even have a quarter of the Tales Of games they do. I'm not holding my breath on getting Xillia for sometime either. Probably be will around July/August time. Graces went from being a January release this year, to March, to July, to November, to September again. Was pretty ridiculous. I ended up ordering it when it came out in America.

Yeah we seem to miss out on a lot of RPG's over here I am not sure how well Tales of Graces sold over here hopefully it did fairly well so that they release others over here. Shopto have Tales of Xillia on there coming soon page but no date next to it as of yet.

Price is high for Vita (even more so when you consider it is a handheld device). PSP isn't such a bad machine when you look at its price. Love the title of one of those games, "Bravely Default: Flying Fairy."

Bravely Default is a really REALLY REAAALLY good game. I'm eagerly awaiting confirmation of a UK release.

I badly want Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, this could possibly be the best game to come out for the 3DS! I think we really need a deep RPG game for a handheld and this I'm 100% will be the best to date! C'mon Enix give us a UK date!!!!!

I'm assuming you're just talking about the 3DS itself? Excluding the DS games since that had tons of amazing RPGs. Yeah unfortunately the 3DS only really has Tales of the Abyss at the moment :/ I was hoping they might have done some more by now but nope.

Halo 4 at third is pretty impressive!

What's so 'ultimate' about the new Monster Hunter game then?
Robichoico's avatar
It's Monster Hunter 3 (previously on the Wii) on the 3DS. I'm sure it's got more monsters etc too.
