Supposed to be a pretty solid musou title this from what I hear, but I'm a lot more interested in Warriors Orochi Ultimate to be honest. Character roster is pretty hilarious sounding in that game, so I can't really resist. Will probably pick it up on Vita.

Yep, PS3/4 only. TK really going all out on that musou market saturation this year. It seems they'll have released a new entry in every musou series and sub-series (One Piece, Gundam) within a very short time at this rate, in addition to also making that Zelda spinoff one.

Thats cool I though it would have been, its a bit random how they do it they seem to release the base games on the 360 but not the expansions anymore.
