What the hell are my fellow Europeans doing? This game is utterly fantastic and should be bought by every 3DS owner with even the slightest interest in RPGs. Here's hoping the somewhat low sales won't turn off the publisher from releasing the sequel in Europe..

I don't know about Europe but I can only assume that the release in Australia was heavily low key. I didn't see much promotional information and the stores I went to knew nearly nothing about it. That being said, they were also all sold out of it. It must have been that each store was only given 3 or so copies, because the difficulty I had in finding the game implied that it sold like hotcakes.

Also, the game was Nintendo published in the west. I'm not sure if SE would have even released it worldwide.

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

@JollyKarp, the difficulty in finding it is also a side effect of Nintendo, and other publishers, not releasing as many physical copies now. Sadly, it's a new trend that seems to be fueled by a lot of gamers begging for more DLC and the like, but meh. I am hoping other companies take the initiative to make the physical copies themselves and fill the market demand better, here I have to pre-order anything I want in a physical copy.

I like being pleasantly surprised.

I'm not sure what surprises me more, that they felt a new IP JRPG was worthy of tv ads, or that they acknowledged the battle system despite it being impossible to sound fun to non-RPG fans.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Nintendo has been pretty decent with RPGs at time. Fire Emblem got a pretty bug marketing push, and I remember Dragon Quest IX getting one as well

WAT!

Hey check out my awesome new youtube channel shingi70 where I update weekly on the latest gaming and comic news form a level headed perspective.

It seem all of Gamestop are no longer taking pre-order for the Collector's Editions in store. However, i was able secured a copy online via @Gamestop. Total came out to be a little over $63 US dollars. So with that in mind,

I hope the game turn out great. Fingers crossed.

Hey, can someone tell me about the 'second half' of the game? I've heard there's something there that really hurts the game.

I'm going to put it in a spoiler tag. I'll keep the story spoilers to a minimum though.

You have to refight bosses. Many, many times.

Would you say that affects the quality of the game?

I think it's four times that you refight nearly every boss in the game, although some of them are grouped together so they're slightly different. Perhaps what annoyed reviewers is that they don't actually add to the plot that much, but you do need to do them all for 100% completion.

No, I don't really think it affects the quality of the game. It does get fatiguing after a while, but it's less irksome than what I've gone through in some other JRPG's.

Uhh, I read up about it. I'll be so un-compelled to finish once I got there I'd feel bad. So I think I'll skip over this game for now.

My backlog sighs in releif.

For the people who have played this game so far: My mom can be slightly paranoid about games, so is there a large amount of objectionable content? FE: Awakening is a good reference point. And secondly, is there a large amount of weird japanese religious stuff, or is that considerably less than the average jrog?

I don't think there is much objectionable content (I may be wrong) but I have understood the plot and all the dialog fine without knowledge of japanese religious stuff

The objectionable content was already censored, so it's ok.

Yeah, I came here just to say I was surprised (in a good way) to see an ad for this on Adult Swim.

It's possible to make parallels between this game's lore and Christianity, as with nearly all other Final Fantasy games. Some players might see it as somewhat... hostile to their theism. You'll fight spirits and demons and the game's story can get very dark, but not much of that is made explicit graphically though.

I will say this once: Your mom needs to grow up a bit.

The reason I say that, "weird japanese religious stuff" is pretty racist. All religions are weird, because mythology is not based on reality, it's fantasy. As for "objectionable," well, everything in games is objectionable, because what offends someone is inherently subjective. The game has a clear line between "good" and "evil," and the player characters are on the side of "good."

As for nudity, if you find that sort of content objectionable, there is almost none. The outfits most characters have cover almost everything. There are no bouncing boobs or crotch bulges, and no sexual content. Actually, the outfits for the player characters are really awesome, very artistic and beautifully crated.

Monsters are clearly monsters, their intent is to destroy. There are no references to drug use, that I had seen, and the closest to criminal activity for the player is the name of the classes they used, like thief or assassin.

Honestly, if you can find something to be offended by in the game, you're looking too hard.
