    Anticipation in overdrive now.

    Interesting one of the reviews said 3DS is the console of choice...thrown a spanner in the works of my Vita preorder. Decisions decisions.

    The point about voice acting is making me consider importing it now...

    This is the sole reason I'm buying a 3DS.

    I'm going to keep myself in a media blackout until then, but it may prove difficult...

    Skim-read the IGN review, and it does sound good - seems to fix most of the issues that 999 has.

    Not having English voice-acting on the EU version is seriously bizarre, though, and so it's a case of Vita version with the voice-acting, or 3DS version without.

    Interesting point about using a capacitive stylus on the Vita for note taking...

    @Kay No English voice-acting in the EU version...?

    Such a ridiculous blunder can only lead to me importing, then. I suppose it's possible that a higher-capacity cart was used for this game and Rising Star Games aren't willing to splash out for such a niche title... I'm at a loss.

    Suddenly aware of this game!

    2 questions - is the lack of English dub for the European release is big issue? If I so chose - where would be the best place to import the US version from?

    Edit: Amazon.com will get it to me for just over £40...

    Well, it does have English subs so not the end if the world if you want to save a tenner and go with the EU version. You'll still be able to understand it.

    I certainly wouldn't pay more than £35 for the import-most sites seem to be selling at that or less from what I can see. I can dig out some links when I'm on the computer tomorrow. :)

    @Flying_Pig The cheapest place that I can find it in stock is VGP: here. It works out as just over £30.

    I'm having a wee bit of trouble with them at the moment though. Hopefully they'll sort it quickly.

    Thanks! I did look on VG , but couldn't find it...

    For a fiver more than the European version, this seems like a decent buy. No proposed DLC is there?

    Have they confirmed if you can turn off the Japanese voices yet? Have absolutely no interest in listening to Japanese whilst reading English text, so would import if you can't turn off voices...

    Reading this thread I've realised that I almost never play my handhelds on anything above mute..

    This looks great but I haven't played 999. Anyone know if it makes sense without it?

    @Flying_Pig Nah, no DLC for it at all. I want to support Rising Star Games as I think they're doing a good job, but the extra voice track was a little too tempting. :o So far I've only had a Paypal confirmation of my order though-it's not in my order history and VGP have sent me no confirmation of their own. I've emailed them so fingers crossed they'll get it sent out.

    @Humperfunk I doubt it but I can't say for certain. The Japanese voices sound fine to me from the OVA and trailers. There's always the volume control.

    @Stranded87 You will get a bit more out of it if you've played 999 (and if you have a DS I highly recommend the game) but it is a self contained story that doesn't need knowledge of the first game.

    By the way, I've noticed that Amazon have put their prices up, so would anyone want to take my £22.50 Vita order before I cancel it?

    @santashi - thanks for that. I think I'll give VG+ a bash :)

    Ended up ordering off VG+ too. It's where I get all my imports from (including 999, wahey!) and the voice acting will annoy me if it is in Japanese and you can't turn it off.

    That and I can't wait another three weeks. Impatient!

    Imports. Pft. Still considering importing Ragnarok but happy with my Amazon version of this. VO a non issue for me.

    Heh, imports are handy things. Thank goodness for region free consoles.

    I would have thought importing Ragnarok would make less sense though because of the DLC (I'm assuming it's not all junk from the way people have been talking about it). I'm trying to persuade myself not to import Persona 4 because I know I'm going to buy it when it's released on the PSN over here because I want the digital version.

    But I want both VOs for Virtue's Last Reward. I'm greedy. :D

    Tempted to go nowhere near it to avoid any further details but doubt I'll be able to hold out

    I was thinking of getting Persona 4 as a x-mas present, I'm supposedly hard to buy for even though there is always tons of things I'd get. Lego LOTR was another I was thinking of as a present if it's any good, as always enjoyed the lego games on the PSP. This is actually the first game I imported in years, mainly because of the VO's. Ragnorak is available here in the shops, hence me been very tempted. Either a feast or a famine.

    Yep, EU store.

    I have a night class tonight but I imagine I won't be able to resist a dabble at the demo when I get back. Hopefully the actual game will arrive next week. VGP are usually pretty good although I haven't ordered anything from them for a while now.

    JayG-I think someone said the Lego LotR is another 3DS port. I am not going there after that Lego Harry Potter rubbish. :D I could ask for Persona 4 for my birthday I guess... Hm...

    Lego Lotr vita is out in america, so will know pretty soon. I always head home to ireland for X-mas, so no pc access. Means I tend to use handholds a lot while my sister, mother and wife watch sex and the city. And I drink myself to oblivion.

    Do you know what time they're planning on releasing the demo? Just got home and went straight to download but no sign yet! /o\
