Next week, ladies and gentlemen, is a wonderful week for RPG fans. Not only is Soul Hackers headed our way this Tuesday, but another itty-bitty game that no one’s ever heard of around here…something like…Pandora’s Tower…is set to go out in the wild on the same day.
Two amazing experiences are just around the corner! In today’s Foreign Wrap-Up, the stand-in for the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words…not me) would like to celebrate the wealth of RPG experiences still waiting to be played across the pond. One or two, I’ve most definitely reviewed. And the third…well, someone seems highly confident we’ll be getting it eventually. Hope springs eternal, as I’ve always said. And E3 isn’t too far away.
Here are the highlights from this past week:
Namco announced a Tales of Xillia Collector’s Edition & Day One Edition for Europe. As if responding to North American fans’ collective despair, one was announced for our region as well. Be sure to pre-order it and the super-sleek Project X Zone Collector’s Edition as well! Details about that here.
Justin Graham took a look at Fist of the North Star 2 in this week’s Anime of the Past segment while a reveal of Sword Art Online’s English Trailer and Funimation’s Spring simulcast schedule rounded things out in terms of anime news.
A new episode of The Downpour Podcast surfaced Monday, and will likely be scheduled to release on Mondays from here on out.
And last but certainly not least, the oprainfall Staff voted on legendary blades in our special feature, STAFF PICKS: Top 10 Swords in Video Games.
