So any of you looking forward to this game? Also known as X Edge, its an RPG crossover game for the ps3 made by Compile Heart along with Nippon Ichi, Capcom, Gust, and Idea Factory. Their characters in this game are from from Disgaea, Ar tonelico, Spectral Souls, Atelier Marie, Mana-Khemia 2 & Darkstalkers.

Unlike Namco X Capcom, this one is actually being translated into English and is due to be released in America sometime in May this year... I cant wait! :D

I'm really looking forward to this game. So May is the expected U.S date? Hopefullly it will come to the UK if not it looks like importing is the next option. :)

I'm actually relieved. I thought it was coming out in March, and I was worried that I wouldn't have the money for it. This way, I'll have enough for both games I plan on buying.

I don't have a PS3 T_T
But I went to see the characters, and they gave several outfits. Etna looks very cool in chinese dress :P

I watched the battle video again, and I still haven't figured out how they got so many turns against the enemy. Maybe its something like Atelier's burst gauge that stuns the enemy when its full?

Yeah I thought that one really suits her. Etna's prinny costume in the video section was just plain weird...

(looks NIS is getting like KOEI now - new costume/same character marketing lol!)

This game is one of the reasons i really want a PS3, and now i hope that Koei, NIS Europe or maybe even Square-Enix will bring it to Europe around maybe june or so (because there's not that many Japanese rpg games out for it yet so i'd really want some more like this when i get a PS3 in June) and if no one brings it here i guess there's always importing. :D

I wonder if they'll have more costumes in the game though because they have made some really nice ones, and i'd like to see more stuff like that for the characters.

I know very little about this game. Also, I recognise very few characters in this game. I have heard about the Darkstalkers series and have knowledge of 4 characters in the link provided, but that is not really enough to make me want the game. I do realise there are probably males that I recognise but still..

PS3 JRPG is limited to Disgaea 3,Enchanted Arms and Eternal Sonata with a few games possibly fitting in like Valkyria Chronicles. Thats rather low so any more would be great to see.

Would Europe get a game when so few characters are recognisable? Of the link provided Etna is the only one I imagine qualifies easily (I dont know about Darkstalkers in Europe) and no one else since Ar tonelico was released in 2 countries (IIRC) and the rest besides Atelier Iris have not been released in Europe.

Who are the Atelier Iris characters in the game? Whim reminds me of someone from AI2 but I dont think its her.

Leady FF ^^
24-03-09, 10:00 AM
I think Morrigan is well known here (amoungst long-term gamers anyway, shes been in any so many classic Capcom fighters).

PrismZeo

I might have made a mistake there....but here's a character list if you want to check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_Edge#Characters

(I haven't read it myself since I want some of them to still be a surprise for me)

Onislash
24-03-09, 10:26 AM
There is no Atelier Iris characters, but I wont say more in fear of spoilers. (better safe than sorry)

Looking at that list that Prism provided there is 2 characters I do recognise that I imagine Disgaea fans will know but no one else beside possible Darkstalkers characters (there is a few on that list). Sure, if some company is brave enough to try it great but not really likely, besides NISE I guess.

PrismZeo
24-03-09, 10:35 AM
Well I've fixed the mistake and added the link to the wiki in the first post now. I wonder if other people from those games might appear too but aren't playable?

Onislash
24-03-09, 10:51 AM
Hmm.. Sure why not?

Etna but no Laharl? Why? I can understand the prinny choice however, dood.

ManaAlchemist
24-03-09, 02:40 PM
Etna but no Laharl? Why? I can understand the prinny choice however, dood.

The only reason i guess Laharl isn't in the game while Etna is, is because the game seems to focus mainly on females from the games. And if that's not why i have no idea why he's not there.

We did those and we used THQ as our distributor. Not sure who is doing it now. Maybe THQ directly?

Hello, i'm from france; can you tell me if the game gonna be traducted in french (and german/ita/esp like others games) for the european release ?
Because the period between the US release and the EU release is very short, i'm afraid the game is gonna being in english

Someone have informations about this please ?
Others koei games have been traducted in a small period between us et eu release or not ?
thanks and sorry for my bad english, that's all the problem !! :p

I buy all my games in online uk shop so it's not a problem, but so the version of the game by koei is traducted in other language or just english ?
i just want to know that ;)

In france, at a moment, a french distributor of mangas and animes KAZE was interested to release the game in france, but there is nothing one their officiel website so i don't know if it is a rumor or something like that.

thank you,

ManaAlchemist
24-06-09, 01:18 PM
Damn I'm getting tired of when developers reveal ports of games before they're even out in europe like the situation is now with Cross Edge as it's apparently being ported from PS3 to Xbox 360 and is supposed to be released in October in japan as Cross Edge Dash. Also here's where i read it if someone wants to read it: http://kotaku.com/5301926/fan-service-ps3-game-crossing-over-to-xbox-360

Now i just wonder if the 360 game has extras, but I'll probably end up getting both versions if the 360 one also will be released here.

Onislash
24-06-09, 01:22 PM
Heh, 4 millon years is far too long for some people. Never mind the 5 millon years for Australia.

I found Cross Edge on Australian EBgames site, so at least it looks like coming.

27-06-09, 12:06 PM
Since CrossEdge is being converted to Xbox 360, are there any plans to release that version too or is it dependant on sales?

I've had the game for a couple of weeks now (good thing the ps3 games are region-free) and I think it's really good. The game didn't seem that good at first to be honest (I had very high expectations), but after playing for a while I really started liking it.

There's one thing I don't like though, sometimes there can be some slow-down (if you encounter a lot of enemies or so). The sprites also look a bit blurry, kind of like in Disgaea 3 is you have setting B (or was it A?), but you get used to it after a while. it's also a bit strange how some enemies are 2D sprites, while some are 3D models.

Other than that I think it's a great game with a lot of depth. It's also pretty hard, but that's probably because I'm playing on hard mode =P

EDIT: I just beat the game ;)

ManaAlchemist
25-07-09, 05:32 AM
I was just wondering, has Cross Edge been delayed about a week? Because some stores here in Sweden have been changing the date from august 28th to september 4th.

Leady FF ^^
12-08-09, 04:36 PM
Some news on this. Sorry but the game has been delayed again by NIS until September 17th

In better news the Japanese Voice Option is confirmed for the EU version.

ManaAlchemist
12-08-09, 05:01 PM
Well i don't mind it at least since those japanese voices will be in it :D (and of course also because i will probably not have a ps3 yet by that time :(). Also now i probably won't have to go to the city several days in september since One Piece UC2 comes the day after so i can get them at the same time. :)

Delayed again huh? Oh well at least we know its still coming out, gives me more time to save for this & Disgaea 2

If you would have read a little while back you'd have seen that Leady confirmed Japanese voices in the game. As for the text I'm guessing that it'll be english only, but i have no idea if it'll really be like that.

I don't see the point in this release. ALL of the characters are playstation established characters from playstation established franchises. If the game sold **** on PS3, then I can't even IMAGINE how **** it's going to sell on the Xbox 360, especially in Japan.They should have just made a new multiplatform game instead of spending more resources on this version.

it's not unreasonable or farfetched to assume that the group of people that ported Agarest is still around (Cross Edge was built on a modified Agarest Senki platform)

the Agarest port was plagued with bugs (overflow error preventing XP from being gained if you earned too much from bosses, impossible to achieve all achievements, could not be installed) and patches were never released. The only thing Agarest gained was I believe 4 CGs and some dialogue that was a bit more risque than the original.


BTW: At this time, there are no plans to bring the game over.

You know, not everyone has a PS3. Also, PS2 owners sometimes have 360s too. It's that simple. Regarding port quality, that's too bad but games can be patched nowadays and it's often better than nothing for us without a PS3.

Don't make this into a war, I was just asking :)

21-09-09, 05:02 PM

23-09-09, 12:31 AM
being a resident of the us, we have had the copy for some time now, i dont want to spoil anything, but i will say this game is by far one of my favourite games of all time, the pickup is really slow, thats the only flaw i see too it, and it has a quirky, yet serious storyline, the battle system is really hard to get down unless you played the game Ar Tenelico, overall i think the game is greatly worth the money (and i havent beaten it yet because my friend went off to college and weve been playing it together the whole time :()

If it helps when i started the game i used Teenage Croix(York), Lyner, i dont know how far you are so im going to say Miko (Meiko maybe?) and especially Aurica, her Revival SP is such a life saver(literally) and well cost you a lot less than if Misha is your healer

heres my setup for them

------------------------------------------
l----------l----------l----------l----------l
------------------------------
l-Lyner-l-York-l-Miko--l----------l
------------------------------------------
l----------l----------l----------lAurical
------------------------------------------


i mainly put Aurica off alignment so that she isnt hit by and attacks that are more than 1X1, and if theres an enemy on the field that can hit her i usually dispose of that enemy as quickly as possible

if that helps at all for a basic setup

If anyone got that Teenage Croix joke im VERY surprised

Onislash
03-10-09, 09:37 AM
Eh, better not to spoil things.

I picked Misha over Miko as Misha hits everyone and Aurica needs to heal pratically every turn. I did use Miko for a while but she has Sweep only, and Misha can hit everyone.

Lyner/Ayatane are my main physical fighters but Lyner is turning out to be better for me.

I recently obtained Raze and Lily and neither are doing very good for me. Raze's damage is pathetic and Misha still hits for good enough damage to compare with Lyner and York while having better range than Lily.

Its possible that they might learn better moves but it takes an eternity to get 1 move up a level and I got 10 odd characters who are in the same boat.

CJZ
04-10-09, 12:27 AM
me too haha

i only used Miko until i had gotten Etna, and even then i found myself using Zelos in her stead very often, i never attacked with Aurica, i only used her to heal Lyner York and Miko, also, Raze is a terrible character in my opinion, Lilt is ok, but i much prefer physical attackers (later on in the game it comes back at you though

and Oni, what i wrote next pertains to very far in the game, i hope not to spoil

USE MIKO AND AYATANE A LOT! theres a portion in the game far into it where you can only use Ayatane, Miko, and (i cant remember his name, Yorks friend, looks like Vocaloid Kaito) also, i tend to use this combination when playing later in the game

NONE, NONE, NONE, NONE
LYNER, York, Lazarus,NONE
NONE, NONE, NONE, Aurica

York has really good movesets later on.
and i think Lyner is better to use later on, due to the skills that he knows later on (anything after Cross Slash ans Impact is still his best EX skill)
Lazarus is just a character i like to use and is funny, pretty damn strong though
And Aurica heals that cross area so i never have to worry about anyone dying(until INA).

i mainly chose these characters because i like their attitudes and they look cool honestly, but they are good characters (except maybe Lyner i think Meu might be better.)

Onislash
04-10-09, 01:53 AM
The "Dark Prince York"? La Pucelle is a older game now, but that pertains to something that is rather major for the game.

I have read the first spoiler but I"ll avoid the second for now.

Bosses have turned into somewhat of a joke after a point Etna plus prinny squad

For example -

Lazarus - Runs close to ko, fair enough but
Lillith + Vampire Guy - 1 gets a ko, other runs like a coward
Crazy claw guy - Gets hit for a round battle over
Troy and Friend - Does more damage after the battle
Bourd - Ends fast, I swear I was not that weak in battle
Raizen - Runs after getting a minor scratch, not to mention the first boss mentioned here hit a lot harder

I realise that people dont drop all the time after 1 battle but cant someone free up their schedule for 2 rounds?
I dont mind the first case that was at 20% HP remaining but the others barely bothered and ran almost instantly (Or I did... unwilllingly)

CJZ
07-10-09, 10:32 AM
most enemies run off after 5 rounds of combat if its not their designated time to be defeated, if your playing through on "hard" mode you need to kill them all in those 5 rounds to unlock the best of the 3 endings

PrismZeo
07-10-09, 01:04 PM
I must be slow at playing this game...I only just met & defeat Lazurus for the first time
So.. how much further do you have to get before more 4-slot weapons appear? I only have one for York and Marie so far...

and i STILL 4 slot weapons (i really dont understand how you synth items and make them appear in the shop, i made really really good items for my characters through synthing and she NEVER puts them in the shop, only the crappy ones)


i just bought a RAILGUN (<3) and put it on York and a Blacksmith on Lazarus (Ginji Amano) ]


but really, you have to make the weapons unless you reach Post game
you start reaching the weapons with 4 slots on them around the third area of the mechanical looking place (cant remember the name)

Had to restart, chose hard mode for new game+. Why are new skills not equipable half time? An example would be Raging Waters (Miko skill) which is technically a skill from the start except you cant use it for quite a long time. For sure its not a unique case. Admittedly, it would help if more weapons would have equipable skills types other than the arrow.

if you notice when you look at a weapon it has 3 categories (which correspond to the attack) the categories are BURST, DOWN, and (something with a yellow arrow), or all. you can only equip down to down, and burst to burst and all can take all of them

earlier in the game youll find that X is "DOWN" a lot and circle is "BURST" later on when you get better weapons you will be able to place your skills where you please (im not sure but i think X is always DOWN

Im aware. Few weapons besides Guns dont bother with anything but the arrow for a long time.

CJZ
19-10-09, 10:20 PM
most of Yorks attacks are arrow attacks excluding i believe Quick Shot and Point Blank

Lazarus has some Burst moves and Down moves but you get him late in the game so you should be able to compensate

by the time you get Yorks burst attacks youll have weapons that say ALL on them so you wont have to worry about that

as far a weapons like Tera Memory and Mega Memory go, they really screw you over with those until near Ina

Normally the sword users besides Lyner have Burst attacks, but i value Lyner because i think he has one of the best play strategies in center front row.

The first free Cross Edge DLC has been released now in yesterdays psn store update.
Hm... is it cheating slightly to use those items? Does anyone know what they are yet?

Final Boss spoliers

Raizen and Lazarus go off and kill themselves and cuts my party in half for the boss. Teach me not to read spoilers.. I cut the boss hp in 1/2 but then the boss gets 2 turns kaiser breaths me for 70000 damage.

EDIT: Finished! Interesting ending Miko "sacrifices" herself, York cries for eternity.

Beat the final boss on the true ending and having some problems with the extra bosses. Anyone else in the same boat?

Well I've finally just bought it, yay!

Love love love the battle system. Nice to see more characters than I expected from Ar Tonelico. I only expected Shurelia, Aurica & Misha.

How long on first play through would you say the game is?

The main game is not very long, but I didnt keep track of my time to complete it on hard. I would avoid the free DLC, it makes it very easy very fast.

Thanks for the tip. I'm playing through on normal mode first then i'll play through on hard.

Yeah, like Onislash said, avoid the DLC or the game will be too easy, you can get it later anyway. When I started playing Cross Edge there wasn't any DLC yet, I was playing on hard, and I was pretty under-leveled for the mostpart of the game, so it was pretty challenging, but fun =P.

Now I have most of the DLC, but I'm still missing a few of the trophies. I might get back to them someday though.
Anyway, enjoy the game ;)

I'll wait until I've finished normal mode before I get the DLC.

There's so many characters to choose from. My favourite four characters at the mooment are Lyner, Morrigan, Miko & York.
I've just recruited Raze, Lilly & Whim so I'll give them a whirl next.

I loved it although my trophy attempt on this was really bad. I think it was something like 7% that I got in the trophy department, lol! Also I found the searching was a bit tedious.

I think it's great though, but extremely time-consuming if you want the platinum trophy (which I don't have).

It's almost impossible to do everything without using a guide, but fortunately there's a New Game+ feature, so what I did was that I used a walkthrough on my 2nd run.

It takes too long to level up, strategy RPG's aren't my forte either. I only made it up to fighting the Prinny, all the enemies were higher levelled than me so after I was trounced I gave up and traded it in. I wanted to like it but the aforementioned problems stopped me.

If you get the DLC you'll probably find it a walk in the park saying that by the time PSN is up and running you'll have beat it!

Don't get me wrong, I do as well, it's just taking forever to level up to be competitive that gets to me here. I mean only like 70 exp from the best enemy team and needing almost 1,000 to level up, it just takes too long. I mean I might pick it back up, since it's dead cheap pre-owned now and with the lack of money I could use a game that'll last.

If I remember rightly I think the main party or the party I used the most was Lyner, Morrigan, if the guy with the blue hair was Raze then him and Meu. I also used Miko, York, Etna and Marie quite a lot too. Morrigan and Lyner were two of my favourites though.

ah cool i was wonder if anyone just used a party of magic users is all and now 5-3 has become insane :( further grinding is required plus the ultimate weapons.
