    Looks like I finally might have a reason to buy a PS4
    I really hope the giant robot controls the same way it did in Robot Alchemic Drive. That game was rad.

    Oh well, still EDF2 should be pretty good.

    I hope they don’t touch the English voice acting, other than to include lines to account for new equipment. The VAs in 2025 were the absolute best.

    They get released on the same day? Interesting. I guess the strategy for Europe can be similar.

    Agreed it is curious that they would release both games at the same time, especially considering the holidays. More than likely Xseed is counting on the diehard fans to double dip on a day one purchase, but the real question, is how many of them are there?

    I’m one of those people, but it just seems strange to have them on the same day and having to decide which to play.

    I feel for your pain to your wallet, and your loss of free time, it’s usually a very hard time indeed!

    The tags still say Vita by the way.

    This is still just a remaster of EDF 2025 with some added enemies and vehicles and missions, right? Until now I haven’t wanted to have a PS4, but I do feel like I’m missing out a little bit due to mainly this game. Glad I played it on 360 so it’s not quite as big a loss.

    EDF is a very fun yet underrated franchise.
