    Please get localized. I need this.

    That’s a pretty standard Limited Edition. If there is an actual card saying “DLC” in it, it would be quite funny.

    Its a Nippon Ichi game so no doubt NISA will bring the game over.

    Most of the dialogue will probably be refurbished into memes and censorship will likely rear its head it more than once. Flip a coin and if it lands on heads then there’ll probably be one or two US exclusive glitches, some of which might be game breaking if we consider what happened with the first Witch and Hundred Knight.

    NIS America needs to die. That evil needs to be eradicated from the face of this planet . Every Soul on Earth wants NIS America dead. To bring destruction to NIS America that is my raison d’etre.

    10,200 yen? Is that extra 200 necessary?

    How was the first one? I skipped it cause REASONS. But I might get this.

    Gorgeous box art, as usual. Hopefully the inevitable localization retains the artwork unlike the recent PS4 re-release, which disappointingly opted for a less interesting cover.

    Pretty standard LE all around. I enjoyed the first game after the PS4 version released, so I’ll probably pick this up too.

    The PS3 version was rife with game-crashing bugs and terrible performance all around, but the newer PS4 version fixes those and is much nicer to play. It’s a pretty grindy ARPG but if you can get into the systems the story is actually decent and the characters are really fun.

    Do you need to play the first to understand the story?

    Yes because that $2 or so goes to the poor starving devs.

    From the so far released details, no. It seems to be set in a different world or time and aside from the titular Hundred Knight no recurring characters are revealed yet.

    I wouldn’t be terribly surprised if there’s a link to the first game or cameos, but otherwise they seem to be standalone stories.

    Sadly the alchemical arts of shitty localisations turns NIS into NISA.

    FAA will make carrying copies of this game on board a plane illegal due to fire hazard.
