Coming to PS4 and Vita June 21st!

I've been editing this project, so I'm pretty excited that it's finally out in the open. I'd be happy to answer any questions about it!

Will there be any content edited out or censored in the final product?

Please excuse the new account, I just joined. But I can promise it's not a throwaway account.

Will this game have cross save between PS4 and Vita?

Might not be a translator question...but I'm very curious. I'd like to get the 100 dollar edition but if its not cross save I might do Vita, and if it is I'll grab PS4 first.

No content has been censored, but we had to edit out all the Japanese and replace it with English. I know that's a controversial move on our part, but I'm sure the fans will forgive us.

The PS4 version will have dual audio on release. Due to Vita cartridge limitations, we're hoping to release the JP audio as free DLC for the Vita release, like we did with Danganronpa: AE.

Grand Kingdom does not have cross save, but the online multiplayer does feature cross play between PS4 and Vita.

Drat! Ok...that'll make the decision considerably harder.

But that Grand Edition just is too pretty to not buy :/.

Thanks for the information Dood!

edit: Just read your first response on the censorship question. I died a little inside (from laughter), thank you.

OK, I deserved that. But excelent to hear. Censoring seems to be a big problem lately, so it's a bit of a concern. (You can thank Nintendo of America for the current paranoia. Now I have to make a quick decision if I want the CE or not.

Thanks.

There isn't a difficulty option, and battles can be pretty straightforward once you get a feel for the gameplay. However, battles do run the risk of turning ugly due to the following factors:

-Limited sources of healing. There is only one dedicated healing class and healing items can be hard to find. If you're taking a lot of damage in combat it can quickly come back to haunt you. This is mitigated somewhat by the fact that units recover a small amount of HP at the end of battle.
-Friendly Fire. This feature is always on. You absolutely must pay attention your units' positioning during battle at all times. One slip-up with a skill that affects a wide area can easily mean you've just wiped out your entire party.

I'm sure there are other factors, but those are just off the top of my head. I also know certain types of quests can be really difficult to complete (i.e. get from Point A to Point B without entering a single battle), and completing them is kinda like figuring out the correct path to navigate a maze.

Really, the difficulty will vary from player to player depending on the tactical decisions they make.

Thanks for the answer. I wish you'd keep the original voices in the game and put the dub as DLC instead, but as long as it's possible to play the game with Japanese voices + English text, I'm happy.


NISA has actually commented on this in the past, at least one of the blues did, not sure which. Since it's being released in primarily English speaking regions (at least as far as the US is concerned) the primary cartridge language will be English. If Japanese fits, it gets added to the cartridge, if not, DLC. I am with you that I would prefer Japanese be the primary, but I can absolutely see their reasoning for focusing on English first.

To be honest be happy you still the voices you want. Unlike us who prefer dubs we are screwed if theres no dubs from the start and have to stay stuck with jpn audio. For example night of azure. At least you guys have the hope for DLC we dont as dub dlc has never been done before.
