I was wondering what the Crunchyroll community thought about it. I'm contemplating buying it when I have the money. So I guess what I want to know is, will it be worth my money and how engaging is the story and gameplay?

Have you tried the Demo, if not go download it now.

I'm currently playing it and having a blast, there's an option to have Japanese Voices on instead of English for those nit picky types.
you can Also change the random encounter sliders for easy grinding or no grinding
The story is soso (but I haven't really played much to form a good opinion) and the characters are charming enough
its basically Final Fantasy III or 4 heroes of Light

**side note: play the game in 3D the storybook/Hand drawn style look the towns have makes it really come alive when you turn the 3D all the way up.

I'm loving the game. The characters are funny, the story is good and the artwork/scenery is awesome. It's one of the few CE's that I actually liked getting the soundtrack and art book for too. Most of the time I never even look at them but these ones are nice.

Combat can be made super easy with auto mode repeating your last selections and such for grinding if and when you want to do it. Being able to change difficulty settings and encounter chances are a big plus too. Plenty of classes and with the ability to combine classes and use abililink as well there is plenty of room to find a mix that works for you. I haven't tried out the Japanese voices but that's only because I am pretty entertained with the voices of Agnes and Edea. The "Mrgrgr" makes me laugh way too much probably.

I played the demo and now I really want to buy it...probably the best demo of all time. Over 5 hours of unique content not found in the main game, with bonuses that you can transfer over. If you haven't played the demo, go download it now!

Thanks guys! I did download the demo, and after playing a few hours I was hooked. I'm definitely gonna buy it now.

I'm planning on getting a 3DS XL just so I can play this game.

Love the XL so much more than the original but I hate the screen scratching issue.

Yea, I made the mistake of thinking it would be fine for a week before getting a screen protector. Didn't know the black border along the bottom scratched the hell out of the top screen. Now I have a permanent box etched into the top screen. It's almost enough to make me want to replace it...almost....

Is that a common issue? I bought one of the Pokemon edition 3DS XL's, and haven't had this issue. (have had it since they first released it and have no screen protector) Maybe they added some more clearance with those two nubs on the top screen or something with that edition? Pretty serious design flaw though if so lol

No clue if they ever fixed it for later XL's but it seemed to be a common issue when I used Google to see if there was anything I could do about it. A lot of people at the time seemed to think it wasn't real when people mentioned it though. Mine is just one of the original red versions of it. Although, when looking at mine, if you have any sort of nubs on yours that adds cushion between the halves then they had to have improved it since mine has those spots but they don't extend outward at all. I honestly don't know why mine even has them since they literally do nothing. They are just two rubber squares set all the way into the device.

Most people said that when they contacted Nintendo about it they were charged like $70 for a new screen even though it should have been covered too. I never bothered sending mine in since I didn't want to lose it for a long period of time just to have the chance at being told I need to pay more money.

I was actually really into it when I first saw it. I watched the trailers and such. I got the demo version and it was just kinda "meh" to me. So I don't think I'm going to get it now, thank goodness for demos.
