Wow, that games looks beautiful! I also really liked the prologue.

I think it'll be an interesting title and a nice addition to the Vita. which i don't have

So apparently this game is going to be completely import friendly from as far as I can tell. Supposedly the story is all going to be told through actions/atmosphere instead of text.

I'm liking the sound of NIS taking a chance at getting more experimental with their titles (although I like the usual NIS and hope they keep doing what they do, of course).

Unsurprisingly, this game will actually be a bit "gruesome" (for lack of a better word, since I wanted to avoid the term dark). The reason I say unsurprisingly is because, after looking at some previous screenshots, the world looks sort of twisted, or at least that one picture with what looks like various corpses entwined in thorns/branches of some sort.

Still might just wait for a localization anyway. Cause it's NIS :D

Not really experimenting, but copying. That description matched Dokuro perfectly.

Dokuro was not the first to try something like this...

It's outside of their usual work, so i'd definitely call that experimenting. Dokuro wasn't even a gruesome platformer or anything. There was chalk, a skeleton that tried to save a princess and that was it. If anything it sounds closer to Limbo (although I haven't played Limbo, so I can't really say, all I know is you played as a boy that was lost, searching for his sister and there were various traps. There was also an emphasis on death and atmosphere from what I hear).

Except for how it doesn't at all, you mean? What "perfectly matches" Dokuro here "perfectly matches" a ton of other platformers.

will is right on the money, I think. Interesting how they keep talking about this "New Brand" stuff.

Limbo probably would be the closer one (game was really dark, in more than just being devoid of light). Though there have been lots of others like this.

I'd say it looks closer to Limbo than Dokuro.

Anyway, I think the title looks really interesting so color me excited.

Loving this. I hope it turns out as nice looking in hand as they're making it in pictures and trailers.

I wonder if NISA could do a limited print for the game and sell through the NISA Online Store.

I kinda doubt it, nor do I see the need really. It's not getting anything like that in Japan, right?

Then... I suppose NISA could, maybe? I thought it was download only, given how they're all "this is an indie!" and stuff.

They're making a limited retail edition for the game in Japan, though.
