    My thoughts on this are:

    1. I Am Setsuna is still a dumb generic name, should have just translated it directly as Setsuna of Snow and Sacrifice. That would have called more attention than this for sure.
    2. More Chrono Trigger always appreciated
    3. PSVita version would be appreciated

    My only thoughts are, how are they going to ruin it during localization?

    Would be nice to also know what kind of price to expect for this one, Square.

    Is it true that the West is getting neither a physical release nor a Vita release?

    I swear I should just stop keeping up with gaming news. Every time a game like this is announced for Japan I get excited for it being announced for the US, but with increasing frequency these days the Western release announcements are always filled with bad news.

    Digital only, handheld games being released not on handhelds (which I adore) but needlessly on home consoles, censorship, memes, retarded name changes, terrible cover art, etc.

    By the time I actually get these games that I’ve been looking forward to for a year+ my excitment and enthusiasm has turned into sour resentment, and it interferes with my enjoyment of the games.

    Is it really SO unprofitable to give a game a good translation and a physical release in the US???

    Yeah just LOCALIZE it, time to sit down to a traditional meal of jelly donuts.

    The art is really nice. It gives me a Child of Light vibe with all those water colours.

    Their live stream starts at 1:00PM EST if anyone is interested. Do they disable chat for this kind of stuff?

    “Yeah just TRANSLATE it”

    The guys in charge should just do a job of translation, not localization

    Playstation handhelds have always been neglected by Sony

    PSP has a shitload of games that never made an appearance in the West.

    Digital only… well guess it just means I pick it up on sale.

    There’s a lot of “where’s the PS Vita version?” and “no physical no buy”. This may turn out to be quite entertaining.

    Eww that generic voice-over.
    Hopefully the in-game voice acting is better.

    I don’t really like the localized name and it might not end up being a good game, but wow, that’s some gorgeous music and art.

    I thought it’s called “localization”?

    At least they’re releasing on PC at the same time now.
