Oh man...and here I thought you were going to be massacring all the cute Etrian Odyssey dudes. But, is it like EO or not?

On the bright side, Dizasutaaaa is looking mighty awesome.

That is pretty simple. I'm assuming there are 7 dragons?

Infinite Line sounds so freaking amazing. I'm glad there's a window for release in the Spring; it sounded as if it might have been a Fall 09 release.

Hopefully the product at least somewhat matches their ambitions.

Ooo interesting. Thought Level 5 would announce a PSP RPG soon enough.

Why would they when their first one bombed. Besides, they'd probably to prefer to have funding from Sony when it comes to developing on Sony's systems.

Ha, I called this. But I thought the Inazuma sequel was going to be on a console, are they still planning a game for consoles?

Inazuma Eleven Break is not Inazuma Eleven 2.
