I can't immediately tell, but this better not have the same dub cast as the anime. God, that was horrendous. Confused

Not too big of a surprise honestly. I wouldn't be surprised if it has the same dub as the anime. Generally these anime/games try to match as best as possible.

Nice that they finally confirmed it. Not quite happy with the $50 price tag, even if it probably does have more quality content than a fair amount of $60 games. And this is coming from someone who didn't bat an eye at the price of "SMT IV" or "Persona Q."

Also surprised that they're relocalizing it. The original script certainly seemed fine to me.

Okay, Atlus are now seriously being shitheads for marking up their 3DS titles.

I was kind of sort of okay with it with SMTIV cause of the disc and guide, until...you know, the first print ran out. And they still kept the $50 price tag.

Persona Q on the other hand was just a dick move. Those "premium tarot cards" were crappier than what my printer churns out. :/

If I don't see anything of substantial relevance packaged with it....I'm probably done with them. Cause as much as I was looking forward to it, I'm not paying f**king $70 for a barebones Persona 5.

Oh wow. I didn't even notice that price tag. $49.99 is getting real old. I was fine with SMT IV doing it due to the bonuses. Didn't care when PQ did it because I got the limited edition, but this seems to be a continuing trend.

The price did drop... eventually. I don't know how long SMT4 stayed at $50, but Amazon, GameStop and a few other places list the MSRP at a only $20 now.

So, if you hate the price so much and don't care about whatever bonus items they might include with it, just wait for it to drop. It might be awhile, but it will drop eventually if SMT4 is anything to go by.

Welcome to game prices literally anywhere outside the USA, this will probably be 55-60 up here.

I'm kinda on the edge about this one, had it released when it was supposed to, I would have probably picked it up, but I got and finished the DS version over the past year, and I'm not too sure about dropping three times what I originally paid on a port.

Chances are it'll be done in California like all other franchise games. While it would be interesting to see Seraphim Digital get a video game contract I honestly don't care for and don't like 95% of their talent pool...

I don't expect things to change anytime soon, but it's pretty annoying as a dub fan when you kindly request via email if it would be possible for certain Texas VAs you are a fan of & interested in to audition for their dubs but no luck... And yet other outsiders make the cut and leave me cold. (Whoever makes these decision sucks at their job)

I know there's long been assumptions that Seraphim Digital's production schedules are ridiculously fast which would prevent more out of towners being cast yet the VAs I actually want to hear in Sentai anime dubs (and improve the overall quality) are still residents of Texas so traveling to Houston from a nearby city isn't impossible

I will buy into the $50 price tag because atlus games are the highest quality on the market (both in terms of physical qualities and game content)

Yes knowing Atlus we'll get this this a year and a half later and digital only. Or have ghostlight localize it with some game breaking bug.

*Reads the title*
"yes!" and stands up
*reads the rest of the article*
"no!" and sobs on the ground

well i should be glad that they have a schedule for Record Breaker (whyd they change the name, idk why but Break Record seemed cooler to me)

haven't heard the dub so hopefully it wont sound too bad though crossing my fingers theyll be some sorta vague, obscure, hard to get connection to Overclocked that only the fanatics of SMT will understand.

I know a lot of people hate the price tag, but this game will honestly be on sale for 15 dollars on the eShop within six months.
