Not sure what is the need of demo. Just treat this game as a VN with some gameplay like Ace Attorney or Danganronpa. That's my mindset going into it.

I wonder if they bring their Vanillaware style to other games, not just artistic but in general. Have you seen any games from other studios that could have a trace of Vanillaware influence in them?

Other other game i can think of is this. The Vagrant

I'm not fully sold on this, VNs are not my thing... Still the game looks pretty to the max, so I might end up checking it out.

I've been hyped for this game for years, yet I can't seem to find anywhere to purchase the physical edition here in México. I don't really want to go with the digital version, so sadly it seems like I may have to skip it for a few weeks while I find someone who sells it.

At least it makes me happy to see that it's reviewing very well! It's currently at 87 on Metacritic.

Niche games like this going very hard to find physical version.

In my local EBgames the game was sold out..

So I had to get it on Amazon, which was little pricy but I dont mind, Vanillaware deserves my money.

Aye, I've been hounding my country's Amazon listing like a fucking madman for the last couple of months and it has never once been available for preorder. I usually don't have such a hard time getting games like this -- probably after it launches there's going to be someone selling it on the Amazon marketplace.

Was very dissapointed when first saw gameplay. Yeah maybe it's a very good game like reviews says, but not for me unfortunately. Regardless, glad for Vanillaware, hope it would be success for them.

Art looks great as always, but it seems light on gameplay that looks fun.

I hope it does well though, its just a shame it wasn't a cool mech action game.

I might be alone here but to me gameplay looks fun and fast paced but similar to Zero Escape and Ace Attorney the story and characters is big selling point here.

Hope this helps. I'm getting mine from here too.

Will get this some time in October when I’m done with Super Mario 3D All Stars.
I actually might do that with All Stars when I'm done with 13 Sentinels, I don't mind re-visiting Mario Galaxy again.

I don't know, for the video it looks like a soft porn visual novel with weird ugly combat, like a Front Mission without money.
Hype is real or is this a sort of Deadly Premonition shitty unplayable over hyped game?

Its real and you seem to have no experience with Vanillaware. Thats their Art Stile for all games and they all end up being amazing!

There are many reasons we’re interested in this game, it has many things that are rare in video games nowadays: gorgeous 2D art, the visual novel genre, mechas, an alien invasion scenario... plus this is the first Vanillaware game that’s story-heavy and takes place in our modern world. It’s unlikely they’ll make a similar game in the coming years. So yeah it’s a unique, well made game.

I'll be making Little Witch Nobeta and N1RV Ann-A threads when they're close to release, although i doubt people would be too hyped about them.

But fuck it i'll be doing it anyway, there's worth in putting effort towards promoting games that go under others radar a lot of the time.

I've been a fan of vanillawares past efforts, so I'll probably end up getting this.
