    Love that artwork. These editions are always too expensive for me though. Not a collector- just the games.

    Glad the Switch is getting non mainstream games. Unlimited weeb power!

    The European Special edition just came in the mail for me this morning. I was really taken aback by how large the whole package was. I was NOT expecting it to be that big, haha. I am also trying to decide which cover I like more, the North American, or European version. It is nice the NA version has the Characters, and such, but I also like the stark and simplistic style of the EU version. Awesome content in both, regardless!

    So what’s the verdict? How’s the localization? Is there any censorship?

    >tfw your copy won’t arrive until monday

  • Carl just started so we should have our review soonish. So far it seems like a pretty solid localization, English voices are surprisingly good too.

    I really want it, even though I still have no NSwitch, but Amazon won’t ship it to Mexico. Damn.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Does it have JP option for VAs incase I don’t like the dub?

  • totenglocke

    My special edition will be staying sealed until a year from now when the cock sucking pieces of shit at Nintendo have finished slowly trickling out the rest of the content.

    If I remember right, they said that would be a free download.

    The boobed mousepad from the Agarest of War CE smells funny.

  • Michael Richardson

    It’s pretty, but it’s just extra stuff that I’ll never get any use out of.

    My copy of the EU Special Edition has being delayed a bit, but given that I don’t actually have Switch yet, who gives a damn. By the time I get a Switch near Christmas it should be here.

    I prefer the look of the EU edition than the US one, and the EU version also gets a Jewel Case for the soundtrack instead of a paper sleeve and also has the game in a proper plastic case, along with the steelbook, where the US is steelbook only.

    But the US edition gets a hardcover art book while the EU one is softcover, so I guess Americans can’t complain too much this time.

  • True Goddess Reincarnation

    Great game so far. I’m sad I didn’t get this when I could.

    You can download the JP voices before you even get the game.
