Yaaay, 9/27 marked on my calendar. I hope they show the game's new look soon! They said it looks much, much better now than it did before.

Can't wait for the first Okami screenshots in glorious HD.

... I kinda worry that the port won't be much better than the Wiimake, though.

Okami would have to be bundled with another game to get a US release, right?
We actually don't know. We know that Sony won't allow PSP remasters to be sold on their own, but I don't know if that also extends to PS2 games. If it does, then Squenix is in a lot of trouble with FFX HD.

At retail? Yeah but after the two RE collections, Capcom will probably just release it straight to PSN anyway. I'm psyched for Okami HD though, it'll be the first Capcom game I've bought since Miles Edgeworth.

Well, I guess Falcom thinks "If we're only going to sell 10k, might as well try to make as much money from it as we can" in regards to the Ys price.

PSN

Another Idolmasters PSP...now?!?
Probably it'll have connections with Idolmasters 2 on PS3.

So strange to see Famitsu leak being so early.
Idom@ster Gravure For You will be remote play compatible with Vita. You'd think with HD models they'd want to extend that creeper love, but meh.

Why are people surprised at the Ys price?

It's 1000yen lower than your average Bandainamco/SquareEnix PSP game that releases at 8000yen. Same price as most PSP games from other publishers.

Someone explain this Ys to me before I venture further into my attempt to play all these games in order. I assume it's a remake or is it new?

Holy shit. Okami and Ys are like... absolute, no-question must haves for me.

Well, assuming Capcom doesn't fuck Okami up, which would honestly be shocking for them at this point.

But Ys. Guaranteed quality.

Well, Ys Seven was 6090 for the standard edition, 7980 for the LE bundle. So this price might be the LE one.

It's a remake of Ys 4.

PSP/DS/3DS games are priced at 6279Y at most. There are a few exceptions (SRWZ2, FFT-0 at >7000Y) but that certainly isn't the norm.

Atlus and now Falcom have increased their prices by 1000Y with the jump to Vita.

Or it might just be that it's a bigger budget production, so the price gets an increase. Falcom was definitely selling their games on the low side of the spectrum if Ys Seven was 6000yen. Now they're just joining the big publishers in pricing.


Anyhow, glad Ys4r has a date. Hopefully the new famitsu has pictures of the game since Falcom said that visually the game would look very different the next time we see it.

DS/3DS games, sure. Most of the major PSP games (aka, titles worth caring about) have been 6800yen+ for a while now. Then again almost everything I buy these days is published by BandaiNamco and they are greedy.

But Okami is an HD remaster for sure? Or just a PS2 classic PSN release?

edit: just checked the source blog it's a remasterized version. YAYYYYYYY

Can't wait to see how astronomically high the price for Yakuza 5 will be.

Do we know the date for the Zero No Kiseki Vita or is it still sometime in Fall?

Wow so that Okami HD rumour was true. I wonder if this is a remaster like the HD collections or just PS2 classics on PSN (like God Hand)?
I would hope for the first but I can't imagine Capcom spending that much on Okami.

Have a fun! Enjoy!

The Okami part on the japanese page mentions PlayView. It also seem to refer to the very first Okami.

Via Google Translate
Remastered HD work, which is the origin of the first work
Product code of caricature Wicked Okami scrolls that have been edited for re-PlayView limited quantities as a benefit
