Glad they announced the english version of this so quickly, I wasn't looking forward to importing and having to miss out on the DLC, which seems like it'll be worthwhile.

That sounds very interesting and kind of looks like Xenoblade from the pics.

good news people should be happy that we are getting stuff like this at all even if it is digital, not long ago there would be no chance. Loli you do know that the american version is digital only as well? just be thankful we are getting these types of games, you and i might like them but to be honest there niche titles and its not worth the time and money to make physical editions. only negative as they dont need to pay for stuff like packaging etc price should be cheaper, £20-25 not £30 plus.

Also other publishers sometimes release digital games as limited physical editions and Bamco could have done that as well

Fairy dance? I stopped watching at about 15 episodes in, its not that i disliked the anime it was okay but i think i had too much other shows too watch at the time which became a higher priority on my watch list and i just never got back to this.
