This isn't surprising. They've reiterated 2017 many times and there's been no proof of a delay.

For a change, not everyone on the fictional planet has some strange American based accent. The horror!

(Considering I know people with most of these accents... it's all good :P They all sound authentic.)

Fortunately that was the exception because they didn't consider it a collector's edition for whatever reason. Maybe this will get it too.

Having the old timey Titan narrate the whole thing was so damn goofy

I really hope there will be an option to mute the VA and have subs, or this could be the first game I actually skip due to the voices.

Huh, that's sucky, but regardless - will definitely preorder as soon as it's up on Amazon.

The talking dragon is adorable.The titan lore and new mechanics looks great! It's too bad I genuinely think the game looks bad. The anime art clashes HORRIBLY with the art of the scenery, townfolk, and older folk.

Yeah that's my reaction. I was resigned not to get the game due to the character art, but now the world looks completely different and awesome. Confused now...

At this point, I'm expecting on December 2, 2017

It will probably still get delayed, copies being out in stories and people playing it right now mean nothing \_(ツ)_/

Yeah I'm rather surprised by it honestly, mostly because: the original, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower being so excellent. All done by NOE :/

Looked great, environments look awesome, and that skies of arcadia kinda similar world is getting me all giddy inside

barring the only kids MCs, and 1 or 2 character designs, which i attribute more to their clothing, I assume we can change their clothes like in previous Xenoblades

That's pretty damn good (even if 8 Deluxe is a spruced-up port).

Yeha but they didn't announce new first party games today so Nintendo is the worst amirite?

Same and I didn't hate the VA even. I get tales vibe from the game instead of Xenoblade mostly because how the characters look.

The humans and other living creatures live on a giant moving creature is straight out of the original Xenoblade and makes the story sounds far less exciting to me

EU Special Edition:

I think both the artworks on the US & EU Boxes are good, digging the more colorful US version though.

The worlds are wonderful. But the characters, the voices, that glimpse at the story and the fights that looks just as boring every time they show them makes me skip the day 1 train. Maybe sometimes in the spring if the spring will be as barren as might be.

I'll probably get that pro controller though.

Framerate does not look great running around with lots of enemies on screen though.

Wow. The NA version is actually the better version. I'll take it.
