    Not sure if you saw this, delayed until early April.

    Pisses me off, really looking forward to it and my son is born in early April. I was really hoping to try and have the game beat before he got here because I know my free time will be limited

    proof? link? tumblr/reddit posts?

    If this is true, hopefully this doesn't screw over the release spread. if it becomes exclusively for the PS4 or Vita, then i'm going to be a sad puppy... i have no intention of getting a PS4 until the PS6 is announced; so my reservation is for a PS3 copy.

    I watched some of Giant Bomb's Persona 4 longplay and have been intrigued. TBH I don't want to play a PS2 game so I'm interested in this. The delay is not a big deal for me. Disappointing, but it's only two months and at least it's like Zelda and is because of the task of translating the whole thing.

    With the popularity of some J-RPG's, one has to wonder why the various companies don't go to localizers and say "here's the [original japanese] script, translate it while we're finalizing the game."

    as for the delay, ah well. gives me more time to procrastinate finishing Trails of Cold Steel II and my backlog.

    They do. Not sure about Persona, but the Zelda case was about them just underestimating the scale of the game.

    I hear that babies watching their mothers play JRPGs increases their IQ by as much as 10%.

    I completely made that up, but if it works for the President-elect, it works for me!

    After the first couple months if you can get the kids sleeping at a reasonable rate, you will have from 7pm until bed time for gaming. I have a 6 month old and 3 year old, still have time for games. Though it took my almost a year to beat the Witcher 3.

    Saw this earlier in the week, honestly I'm okay with it. I'm probably getting FF XV this month and I won't beat it until early next year most likely.
