My Japanese is lousy, but I thoroughly enjoyed the import without too much issue. Besides, the recommendation still stands for when we inevitably get it localised this year.

I mentioned this in the LRG thread, but it might be of interest here as well.

The developers of Fallen Legion recently announced that the Vita version of Fallen Legion will include a unique story and focus on a different character than the PS4 version making it a companion game to the console version rather than a port. I haven't been able to find much information about the specifics but it sounds like in the Vita version you play a character who is opposed to the main character of the PS4 version and that there will be unique scenarios and some unique enemies in the Vita version.

I'm assuming Badland either stepped into to fullfill the physical rewards (PC DVD) of the campaign or else they just licensed the game for that PS4 retail release?

Interesting. Sounds like Ukiyo no Roushi/Ukiyo no Shishi.

I know Badland stepped in, but there were no physical rewards in the campaign. They just decided to do a physical release for PS4 for whatever reason. XB1 got digital-only either, so it's not a massive surprise that Vita was, I was just pointing it out when we were discussing possibility of them doing physical releases of other games (i.e. they're the console publisher of Dex, so they'd have first refusal on that and chose not to).

Not entirely true. As a backer you could get the game on a (PC) DVD.

As for the PS4 release of the game, here's a press release by PQube:

http://www.gamasutra.com/view/pressr..._in_the_UK.php

Given how these 2 companies seem to either be related somehow or at least closely working together (in this instance and seemingly also on other games) who knows which Vita games they might do together?

A game publisher having an office in a country doesn't make that publisher a distributor, it could be merely a representative office.

As to why they are using a distribution partner, perhaps they are using it to save on distribution costs themselves (warehouses, salaries, etc) or perhaps as PQube has a better understanding and better contacts on the UK market than a new company does.

I don't have an answer as to why they have their offices so close together.

No way. Falcom has already decided that the game will be PS4-exclusive, the only ones that could change that decision are Falcom's themselves.

0. It's ps4 only. With the asset upgrades the game wouldn't be able to run on the Vita. Falcom already started moving away from the Vita.

I assume Punchline would be PQube? Although not sure why anyone would bother bringing that game over. It completely fell off the radar.

NISA and XSEED have also done 5pb titles before (Psycho Pass and Corpse Party). So who knows, really? PQube has only done Science Adventure at this point.

I was wondering about this the other day. LRG said they were doing a Vita exclusive in February? Maybe that could be Kenka Bancho otome, and they're using "exclusive" in the "it's not getting a physical release anywhere else" kinda way (since I assume it'd be on Steam).

Who knows!

Anyway, in other news, Arcadian Atlas writer is optimistic about its chances on Vita:

Unity is very Vita friendly. It's a final modification step, so first to finish, but looks good!

I'd seriously like to know what's happened with Koei Tecmo and Vita. It's crazy that we get Chin pretty much confirming that Kiwami bombed and we wouldn't be getting any more physical games from them, then we didn't in 2016 (not even in Asia with fairly well known games such as Attack on Titan).

Then all of a sudden, not one but two physical releases in 2017 with Atelier Shallie and Toukiden 2.

Very happy. And I'm gonna be buying both of them!

Best Buy is pretty random when it comes to what Vita games they want to continue to stock past the first shipment. IFI and Nisa are about the only ones now that hang around for any significant amount of time, while everyone else drops off after a shipment or 2. Even Cold Steel 2 didn't get a restock past it's first shipment and it was sold out after the first launch week.

With vapor ware, unless we get official word, then I'm not gonna count them out. Don't think about it to much. If they come then they come. We can all rejoice when it happens. If they don't release, then it's not the end of the world. I learned a long time ago not to get hung up on games that go ghost and stay that way. That's a fine way to miss out on other great games.

John Hardin recently said on Twitter that Caligula isn't that far along so don't expect any news about it until the new year (this was early December).

So yeah, I wouldn't expect it until Summer at the earliest.

Tokyo Xanadu is probably held up by the PC porting.

I imported it late last year. Still haven't gotten round to it yet.

I think there are 0 chances of it coming west, so you might as well. It's been nearly 2 years since it released in Japan, it's too late now.

Yeah, I agree, sadly. Has been my most wanted localisation for Vita, but hadn't had enough time for the import to be urgent. It's going a bit cheaper now, so shall pick it up.

Play-Asia occasionally knock loads off the price of specific games, but only for one copy (i.e. after you've purchased it, price goes back up). I managed to get it that way. Though I think it's going cheap on amazon.jp anyway.
