I hate that the overwhelming majority of Americans only like games with guns. It's pretty difficult for me to come up with 5 NA CEs that don't involve games with guns.

Oh well I guess I should be grateful that at least an English speaking country somewhere in the world is receptive to Japanese games so that we even get a chance to import something like this.

After purchasing Last Story CE, Pandora's Tower CE, and soon Ni No Kuni, I should just move to Europe.

The full-colour Wizardís Companion contains a bestiary of all the creatures found in the game along with in-depth item descriptions, spells and history of the other world.

So hopefully some nice art in there as well.

I'll buy one of those CE. If I somehow can't get one I will randomly choose one of you guys that will boast here on GAF that he/she got it, murder you and take it from your cold dead hands. Consider this a fair warning.

Good Point. I do enjoy my Halo and COD online with friends, but i love rpg's! And it bites that this kind of stuff would not sell very well over here! :(

If I get the game, yeah, definitely doing this. The book's a neat novelty and it's a great compromise to put out an LE with the book, but include it digitally in all games. If we can ONLY get it digitally in the US, not even a retailer exclusive LE, then I'd rather just import.

Yeah I like my occasional FPS as well, but I also like many other types of games. I wish the American general public were more like us, then we would get all kinds of CEs and releases.

Eff'n this! Dammit I'm tired of this "everything should be shooters and "bro-op" now or it's no good!" I have a hard time even thinking I'll be able to enjoy Borderlands 2 or Bioshock Infinite because of all the shooters I was exposed to on the 360 (which I've sold now for a Vita).

This is a game I've been looking forward to ever since it was announced. I wanted that book when Japan got it. Now I'm gonna have to preorder this if I can and I won't cancel it unless NA gets it.

EDIT: I just realized I went from Junior Member to Member. Yay! =D

Same. I'm willing to splurge a bit on this game since I have plenty of time to save for it from now til mid January. And it's one of my most anticipated games. Don't have many RPGs now a days. At least not on consoles. This is gonna look so beautiful. And from what I've seen of the book in Japanese, it looks like a lot of work and care was put into making it. I bet it's really interesting to read.

want, very badly.

I've been so starved for good JRPG's lately. All the 360 ones from the beginning of the gen seem like a distant memory now that MS just cut their losses with the Japanese market.

This and Xillia, please hurry up.

Awesome!!! I'll have to import anyway because the American version will cost twice as much here, but much cheaper than importing from Europe.

Edit: Club Namco exclusive and they only ship to the USA. FUUUUUUUUU

I'd like to know this as well. Went ahead and preordered in the meantime. Ended up costing $119 with tax and two day shipping.
