$20 says the PS3 version is going to be either watered down or run terribly.

but yeah I'm pretty excited for it, the gameplay seems very fun, the character choice seems pretty good for now, and the visuals look... pretty nice.

also speedwagon

LOL I'm not taking that bet. There was a side by side video with both PS3 and PS4 footage a while back but I couldn't really tell much from it. I pre-ordered the PS4 version even though I don't have a PS4 yet. Planning to pick one up during holiday sales this year and I had the same concerns about the relative quality of the versions.

I'm probably gonna get the PS3 version; I don't have a PS4 and I don't like purchasing a new console unless there are a good amount of games that interest me (there's also Persona 5, but it's getting a PS3 version too, so that only leaves Street Fighter 5 for me). I'm already planning on getting a Wii U first too.

Any news on a western release? Importing games can get a little pricey and I think it's very important to support a localization so that the series can gain more momentum over here (as long as we don't get BS like Jean-Pierre Eiffel again...)

That's understandable. I probably wouldn't be getting a PS4 either if it weren't for the fact that my husband wants one, anyway.

No date for the western release yet but I'll update as soon as I hear about it. I am sure the copyright-dodging name changes will be the same for Eyes of Heaven. They can't really get around it legally-speaking.

I'll check out and I hope it'll be a great competitor for other games based off of shounen manga.

I hope it gets localized. I need to read the manga so I can know who all these part 4 and beyond characters are.

Have you played All Star Battle? It's pretty fun. A lot of people seem to be playing it who haven't read the manga or seen the anime. I am terrible at fighting games, though so I don't think I can give a very informed opinion on the technical aspects. I just played it for the characters, tbh.

You should get on that.

I'm pretty sure it will be localized. It seems ASB was pretty popular outside Japan so I'd expect them to capitalize on that.

Well, this is interesting. There are details on the new story mode written by Araki. Apparently a mash-up of characters from both worlds with the introduction of a new original character "with a connection to Heaven" I guess. There's video with the translated info on YT. Here's a screen:



I'm guessing maybe an ascended DIO? But that wouldn't exactly be original. We can only speculate at this point.

Here's a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QCeM1pGxQQ

CR just posted a news article with video of recent clips from the new story mode. Most of it is manga recap but the end is a surprise.

Is there any chance we will see a PC version of this gem, or will it be a Sony exclusive?

Like Thefirestrom83 says in all likelihood it will be a Sony exclusive.
