surprised vita is being ditched given the listing

even if the first one had "questionable performance" on vita
I think the page is a list of release dates for PS4 games. So not down and out yet...

Though they clearly had incredible difficulty getting the game running at all on Vita, so I wouldn't be surprised if they ditched it. Will be interesting to see how many sales they lose by doing that though.

How well did the first do? In the West this didn't do that well but don't know about Japan
It opened better than any Atelier PS3 game in japan.

Huh, I thought the game was hot garbage? Why cheer for a sequel?
It's not.

This was that yuri-bait ARPG thing, yeah? I think I watched the Quick Look. I recall thinking it looked... not terrible.

In any case, It's always nice to see a B-game get a sequel.

In retrospect, the game didn't left me much. Bad plot, repetitive gameplay... it's not THAT bad, but I'm not particularly interested in a sequel.

Been waiting on a decent price drop for the first game to check it out. Glad to see it do well enough to get a sequel.
It already dropped to £20.

i wouldn't say it was garbage, i thought it was very uh lackluster and somewhat unsatisfying in hit detection

I think you of all people very well know they'd lose a lot of their potential sales

Not really. I know the Vita SKU of most of these kinds of games normally matches the launch sales of the PS4 version and out-legs it, so ends up selling more, but I don't know how many people would buy the PS4 version instead if a Vita version didn't exist.

Not all of them, surely, but if it's a big enough number then it's a justified choice. Especially for an action RPG after the mess they made of the last one.

I actually enjoyed the first tremendously for being Gust's first action title while also containing a love theme between the same sex gender AND also being handled very nicely rather than making a big deal out of it. I'm super excited and the first definitely was a good game but (felt somewhat rushed). If they had more time for the sequel, this series definitely has amazing potential.

Also the soundtrack was probably one of Gust's best.

Enjoyed the hell out of it. Pretty much the definition of a game that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Though I enjoy how it looks.
And I enjoy how it sounds.
And I enjoy how it plays (wish I could jump, though).
And the story isn't 100% garbage, even given whatever everyone else's standards are.

I welcome this sequel with open arms and wallet.

I never got far into the first game. The story didn't seem good and the combat felt more than Musou levels of repetition.

Maybe it opens up later?

Either way, I'd be interested in a new one if they can make the combat more fun. And maybe have some slightly less ridiculously ... buxom... characters.

Is it? Didn't start playing gust titles until this gen. That's impressive. Wonder why they didn't dub this than
It was the only way for them to justify probably localizing. Dubbing would cost too much and seeing the sales in the west not being stellar would have made it a waste of $. Hopefully the sequel fares better in the West. The japan sales though are great for it being a new IP.

Some details on those making it and the story

The project features Fatal Frame and Kagero (Deception) series director Makoto Shibata on the story, and Production I.G.’s Junichi Fujisaku, who wrote the script for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and directed Blood+, as the story supervisor.

A line of text on the website teases a “story played by the new moon, interlaced with love, love, and love.”

I really enjoyed the first game so i'm hyped for this.

maybe i assumed too much when most ps4-vita titles sales are sustained because of vita
i just think gust's base is more vita orientated anyway

I wasn't expecting a sequel but I'll take it.

The first game had a bit of a Nierish quality to it, in that it was rough around the edges, but despite that I still enjoyed it quite a bit.

Looking forward to seeing what form the story will take considering what happened in the first game.
