I'd stream anyway via my capture card, though. Sugiyama can suck it.

That's what I thought too, but on the other hand iirc I was able to stream the entirety Dragon Quest Heroes 2 without problems.

Man the 3DS is missing a ton of effects on the spells compared to the PS4 version. Would actually be kind of cool to get the 3DS version on Switch with the graphics cranked up to 11. Also would be sweet to play the old style version on a big screen.

Amazon's sending my 3DS copy whenever they can be arsed. They've been pretty quick so if I'm lucky I'll have it by Wednesday.

Starting with ye olde 2D version, will re-play in 3D right after, and will probably pick up a nice white PS4 Pro at some point and get the PS4 version in the fall.

I'm hoping the Switch ver will have both modes. But it is unlikely because of the map size difference (3DS map is smaller).

Ooh, didn't realize Japanese release was so soon. This is up there with my most anticipated coming titles, so I'm excited to hear some impressions.

The 3DS version looks incredibly close all things considered!
I'll end up getting all 3 versions without a doubt, even if one of them remains Japan only.

12 hours :D Super excited. This game was one of my major motivators to learn Japanese, and it's gonna feel great to dive into it.

Going with PS4, even though the battle camera looks kind of terrible (as much as it hurts to say).

Can't you change the camera? Pretty sure it's got two styles to choose from

It does. I think a free roam camera and a fixed camera.

Yeah, its just I won't be using free-roam because it looks bizarre to move around while everyone else is stationary, and imo the angles and pace of the auto-camera are really jarring.

But who knows, hopefully it's a non-issue when it comes to the actual game.

I'd say that's what Square-Enix America wants you to think, but what they actually want you to think is that the game doesn't exist.

Same, tempted to get it anyway through a Japanese account just to play it for a bit and support the series.

I Imagine there will be walkthroughs. It's going to be hard to ignore when there isn't even a release date for the west.

Japanese wikis are already starting to go up, you should be able to play through it without too much trouble (aside from story details) with Google translate.

Looking forward to impressions of this. It's a game I'm definitely interested in but not 100% sold on yet.

Of course there's also the matter of the NA release not being confirmed yet. I'd be in for the 3ds or the switch version. But I have a bad feeling that NA might only get the PS4 version.

That's what I get for laughing at you for considering playing both versions at the same time, because now I might just be right there with you.

I mean, I'm cautiously optimistic that we'll at least get the PS4 version, but it's not like they're saying "please be patient, we hope to announce something in the future" or something along those lines. Just complete radio silence.

No way we get both Dragon Quest Heroes and Dragon Quest Builders and not the mainline title. It wouldn't make any sense.

We'll see what happens but I think we'll get something. If we don't...I'll just wait until some wonderful fan translates it, import it, and play it with that script at hand.

I was just having fun reading what you were saying as SE embarking on a malicious, Orwellian scheme to deny the existence of DQXI to the RotW, is all. That would be some nightmarish stuff :P.

But yeah, looking forward to impressions.

You'll have to buy Japanese PSN codes from a site that emails them after purchase. Play-Asia, Solaris Japan, and Japan Codes all do that. I'm sure there are others.

Yeah it's one of the better games to try out while studying Japanese. And I'd even say those worried about the kanji and all shouldn't too much as this is a good game to help you brush up on your kanji.

But yeah I can't wait to play in the morning. Part of me wishes I had gotten the digital versions so I can play at midnight tonight but I can wait a little longer. Japanese delivery companies are very good at delivering early in the morning games on release day so I should have not too long after those who buy it in stores in the morning. Plus I need to try and get through ffxii zodiac tonight so I guess I can wait a little. I just hope I get that shipping email soon. Square Enix's Japanese store emails usually come late though.

Yes I ordered that huge final fantasy ultimate special edition from them before last year. Their email came a little later than some stores, I think I got it like at 10pm, but it was delivered on release day the next day around 9am. So yeah they are good, fast, and very reliable. Although I wish they were like Falcom's store, which delivers their games the day before release date. Main reason why I always order from falcons store for their games.

But yeah me too, got the double pack coming from them, it's going to be awesome.
