How excited are the Japanese fans?

Postby Aaron » Wed Oct 14, 2009 3:06 am

Simple question really. I wanna know if the Japanese gaming community is excited about this remake. I realize that Lunar isn't a real headliner type of game. But I know that it can and should be.

I hope that it's getting a big hooplah in Japan but I guess we have to wait for game sales to see if anything happens.

Over at Amazon.jp, preorders have gotten it ranked 125th in Games, 20th in PSP, and 5th in PSP RPGs. Dengeki Online has a half dozen articles on it and Famitsu.com has run four. I haven't seen any banner ads or anything like that yet.

Most comments I've found have been postive and written by fans of previous versions. As far as negative, I remember someone on 2ch commenting that the new art made it look like a bishojo game reject. That was good for a chuckle. ^_^ Lots of people are wondering if Lunar 2 will also get PSP treatment, even Shigema (on his blog).

2ch review bombed Dragon Quest IX too for trivial things...

But yeah it looks like the campaign Gungho is doing is really generating hype for this game.

Um... really? Its Xseed. Its been stated all over the place. *tsk tsk*

Edit: Orrrrrrrrr, xseed is merely the translator and you are talking about the company that will actually manufacture the stuff and ship it out. Outsourcing, it confuses me in talk like this.
