Oh, fuck yes. This looks even BETTER than Odin Sphere. Atlus, get started working on the localization now! No, like, right now!

Dunno why, but it reminds me of Usagi Yojimbo for C64. Hopefully it'll be just as good.

Beautifull AGAIN.

I wonder how it will play. Looks early and right now it looks like it would be kinda a Ninja Gaiden type of game (i mean, like the sidescrolling ones of course)

But they say "RPG" so...

RPG?

So I can't actually whack anyone with that sword or what?

I love the art. Buying this (provided that impressions turn out favourable) on launch. Hopefully the waggle won't be a nuisance for this kind of game.

Fantastic.
 

Stop It

Perfectly able to grasp the inherent value of the fishing game.

Thats too late, it should be localised yesterday, it looks outstanding, I would love to see this in the UK, but I can't see it happening :(

Hmm, it took 14 posts this time, impressive.

Certain shots really remind me of Mystical Ninja on the SNES:







Here's hoping it plays in a similar vein (complete with first level of Gradius) :D

I'm there if they include a GCN/classic controller option. Unless waggle turns out fine, doubt it though.

I have not purchased Odin Sphere, the miserable broke bastard that I am. I will make it my mission now to get that title. This looks beautiful, can't wait to see it in motion.

Sweet and Beautiful 2D Bliss... now if only other 3rd part devs could put quality like this in to their Wii games.

This is looking awesome. What is with all the awesome Japanese screenshots we've been having lately. First King Story and now this. I'm impressed.

PAL release plz kthx
Considering we don't have Odin Sphere and I think it's not even announced for Europe .... little hope.

GrimGrimoire is out end of september, and there have been rumours about Odin Sphere, but nothing confirmed.

Wow, this is a game that I approve of. My frothing demand grows!
I hope it comes to the U.S. If it doesn't, is it possible to mod your american console so that it supports japanese games?

The only thing to worry about is the control transition. I hope no pointing or waggle is involved. Even so, there aren't enough buttons like there was on Odin Sphere.

When I knew about Wii's lack of horsepower I was dissapointed, but at the same time I hoped that its low development costs and non HD would end up being an attraction for small developers. I guess I was right for once ^^

Also ZOMG @ 2D art done right in a 2007 videogame! Awesome.

The art is so amazing.

I just hope this game isn't as repetitive as Odin Sphere. Game art was great, but I can't finish the game. I don't like how repetitive the game is.

And I don't care if this game has waggle. I waggled the 36 hours it took me to beat Zelda. I will waggle through this game if it's amazing.

Odin Sphere isn't an indicator. Odin Sphere was published by Atlus, OMY is published by Marvelous. Marvelous has a European publishing subsidiary, Rising Star, and pretty much every Marvelous game comes to Europe these days. That's why No More Heroes is confirmed for Europe (published by Rising Star, of course), but not for the US (no publisher).
