    Now, will this be a Steam-only localization or will PSN get a release ala Tits:SC. For some reason I suspect it'll be Steam-only.

    This is very exciting. I hope the port is better than the first game, though. It would seriously suck to lose the music player and Goddess Shop again.

    This is awesome news, if it winds up true.

    Totally day 1 purchase.

    If this is legit, I'll definitely buy. I want to believe but it's so easy to fabricate these screenshots...If it does come out, I suspect it'll be Steam only too just because HMH's portable sales were...well... >_>

    I don't believe it, if only because of all the other stuff on that list. If it had leaked via other methods maybe I'd be inclined to believe it.

    Well that would be the non-Falcom PC tittle.

    Pfft, that's so obviously not a tease about an upcoming announcement. :p

    They actually released English multi-player gameplay which showed off the translated main menu.


    I await the inevitable announcement that an unforeseen circumstance caused them to cancel the release, which will explain the refusal to actually announce the game. :p

    Not going to lie, I'm still hoping this comes out. I was one of the few people who purchased the PSP release when it first came out and I loved every second of it.

    Just watched the video. It's obviously on PC, as I can hear and see MSN notifications. I guess that means there's no PSP release, and this will be locked to Steam. *sigh*

    I'm not too surprised, unfortunately. HMH sold terribly on PSP and obviously did better on PC (enough to make it worth localizing, anyway). I hope Steam's not the only site it's available, but it seems like companies don't care about alternate digital stores without DRM restrictions. :p

    I wonder why Half-Minute Hero sold so bad. Other RPGs didn't sell that bad on the PSP, so it begs the question why all those RPG lovers didn't get it.

    Thanks a lot, non-buyers. :(

    Yeah, I remember it specifically being singled out as a failure for XSeed so stunned to see a sequel may be coming in any form to the west.

    It'll be PC-only. One of the people working on it posts on NeoGAF, and said this:

    "PC/Steam has been good for the series. I'd love to have a portable version, too, but the cost/profit ratio is too low when compared to PC.

    Maybe someday I can be open about all this stuff, but working for a Japanese company I doubt they'll ever let me talk."

    The first game's PC port also saw release on Playism, so it might not be Steam exclusive.

    It was a $30 retail product when it looked like a $10 downloadable game ... which was the price it launched at on XBLA, and Steam.

    One has to wonder, with Half-Minute Hero's performance for XSEED being seen as so dire, why did Aksys pick up Jikandia?
