Yep, that's exactly where I got it from :) Their 3DS stuff isn't insanely cheap (although still a solid 15 bucks cheaper usually) but all Wii stuff I've seen is less than 50, which is half price for most decent stuff :)

Yea that's where I'll be getting it from :) (unless something better comes up)
I got Golden Sun from them and I think Strange Journey as well.

That's also the site I got Civ 5 from for $39 instead of the insane $79US Steam was trying to charge (and the copy I got was a boxed Steam version ;) hehe)

An Australian release date has been confirmed.

The article mentions that the limited edition soundtrack CD will be available in certain retailers only. Better stay tuned to find out which ones. I'd really like a soundtrack CD!

Australian release confirmation is fantastic.

I want the Red CCP damn it, I'd chose that over the Soundtrack any day. I hope the US gets Xenoblade and the other JRPG's soon, I'm sick of seeing their spam on Nintendo sites and facebook groups.

Unfortunately I'm a PhD student, so I have neither the money nor the time. OF course that doesn't seem to stop me, but I'm sure that has nothing to do with my 6 year long PhD... right?

JB Hi-Fi seems to have some kind of dodgy-looking 3rd party Classic Controller.

Not sure what's up with that. Has anyone seen any better versions?

Ewwwww.

Why do people prefer the soundtrack over the CCP? It's not like it's going to be a uber collections item that you can sell on ebay for $100.

I personally don't like the look of the CCP. I have the black one, which came with MH:Tri and it looks quite stylish and classy. The red one (to me, and this could seem offensive) looks like a clown hookers lipstick. At least, that's my opinion :)

Edit - I should mention that the JB Hi-Fi one is far uglier than the real one, but I still hate the colour of the official one:)

Apparently the music in the game is very good and I've been getting into game soundtracks lately. I'll take either though. The proper CCP would be great but it's something I can buy from a shop for $25 (albeit not in red) so I feel like the soundtrack would be more valuable to me personally. I wouldn't intend to sell it though.

I agree with Leirith regarding the soundtrack. I could get the controller later if I wanted to, but the soundtrack is usually not as easy to get (or can be more expensive to get).

Here's a dev chat video:

Not to spoil too much of the game's goodness, but from the few tracks I've listened to already, I definitely get the impression that the soundtrack's quality is absolutely superb. Combined with the fact that there are some big name video game composers behind the scores, it's definitely making me excited to get my hands on the game sooner rather than later.


Such a solid tune. Really love the diverse blend of instruments.

Likewise here, except my copy is coming from Zavvi, thanks to their generous 10% discount on top of an already reduced price. Here's hoping that the shipping time isn't stupidly long like the last order I got from them; my copy of Last Window took a month to arrive, although from memory that was due to supply issues at launch.

So I hear this is one of the best JRPG's ever!

Seriously though, not so much best JRPG ever but more best JRPG of the generation. I'm not a huge JRPG fan, but most seem to think that this game is one of the best in the genre for a while. Honestly wasn't thinking of grabbing it, but I've changed my mind now. :)

Didn't know much about this until a couple of days ago, certainly looks interesting. Although I can't find a video review anywhere(or many gameplay vids too for some reason)

There's a Let's Play type series on YouTube, which is almost all gameplay.

There's tons on youtube!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLVaDpUIky8&hd=1
The vid has japanese language (and the game will give that option too, between english/japanese voices - I'll be trying out both, tho may most likely stick with japanese voices).

Quick overview of the various areas, and battles and other bits:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UT1Sgxu_VI
In this video, if you want to just see some battle stuff forward to 1:30. You can also hear the english voices.

I have to say, it's certainly refreshing hearing english accents in a game, rather than american. I do kinda get sick of hear american accents all the time.

Really looking forward to this game :) I'm almost squeeing with delight :woot:

I thought about it, but instead have gone local.
Trading in a bunch of games that I will never play again (like Donkey Konga and a bunch of PSP games) - better traded in rather than sitting on shelf collecting dust (traded at GameTraders).
