    Default Fate/Extra

    Since UMD games are region free, i've picked up a copy of the US limited edition. I probably shouldn't have done what with the intense backlog, but watching Fate Stay Night has made me want to experience the universe in game form. I expect it will arrive Monday since where it shipped from isn't massively far from where I live.

    Anyone else thinking of getting an import or are you waiting for a Europe release announcement? I read the reviews and it seems to borrow heavily from the Persona series, pretty good source to imitate a game like this from really.

    I've looked at it and want it so will probably buy at some point but with so much stuff coming out and with Christmas coming up it's time to watch my spending, lol.
    What's actually in the limited edition?

    Well, everything from the Japanese limited edition apart from the Saber Extra Figma.

    I really want to play this but I'm hoping a EU release will happen, but otherwise I'll probably import (not that I can afford it right now anyway... ^^; ).

    I think Ghostlight should bring it to the EU, I did mention it to Ross but who knows.Ghostlight have been great with their releases, definitely one of my favourite publishers.

    It did arrive today, first impressions. I f**king love it. I have to say the battle system is pretty good, you have to plan your actions and what order and since it's 6 actions at a time it really feels like a flowing intense battle like in the anime. That and it relies on information gathering in order to get the advantage over the main opponents. It really pulled me in and was sad when I had to stop to recharge the battery.

    I've had the game for about a week or so now, since i found out a store here had imported some of the limited edition copies, and i just couldn't keep my hands of it and I've been playing it a lot since then and I'm currently on the 6th round of the tournament.

    And I have to agree, it's so damn good! Though it can get a bit difficult late in the story, which is somewhat annoying.

    Definitely looking forward to Fate/Extra CCC now, so hopefully the game sold well enough for Aksys to bring the CCC to the US too (so that i can import it).

    And after playing this, I really hope they'll make a Fate/Extra anime, because i want a Nero anime. That little cameo appearance she had at the end of Carnival Phantasm ep 8 was awesome, but not enough.

    Well I got it for Christmas and I think it's great. It kinda feels a bit Persona-esque but not if you get what I mean.
    Great news that Ghostlight are bringing to the EU.

    I agree that it's kinda got some kind of persona-feel to it. And it's truly great that Ghostlight is publishing it, but i kinda feel bad for buying an import of it now (kinda thought that it'd never be released here, or that it'd end up digital only, like Fate/Unlimited Codes, if it ever was).

    Hopefully it'll sell well enough for them to bring F/E CCC to europe too, as the first game is really great.
