    looks a bit different from the first, too many options for japanese games on pc this year it seems, they are doubling down on it.

    Won’t they just localize the switch version which includes both games?
    Already played the first one but it seems like a better idea just to wait for the switch port for more bang for your buck if they’re both 60 dollars.

    Oh but I thought the previous one sold like shit so they wouldn’t port any of the sequels?

    Enjoy playing in false 4K though.

    Cool, I was debating whether or not to get the first game on PS4 or PC since I wasn’t sure if they’d port the sequel. I wonder if they’ll port Builders.

    Wasn’t DQH one of those “shit ports” that wasn’t actually bad, just lacking extra bells and whistles?

    You guys need a new dictionary.:P
