    Project Diva Mega mix released in Japan today, there's a demo. Thankfully you can change the glyphs to PS symbols so it's not like starting again.

    It's coming out in the West in the near future, and I imagine it'll just be menu translations so shouldn't be too long. I'm going to wait for that.

    Good to play with Miku in portable mode though! I can take her everywhere with me. But not in a creepy way like that guy who married her hologram like I saw in that channel 4 documentary last night ;)

    Portable Miku ^_^ I will also wait for the Western release (and maybe get back to Future Tone while I wait).

    I'm feeling very, very guilty for being tempted by Azur Lane: Crosswave (out tomorrow). I know it will be absolutely terrible. But even though its anime adaptation desceneded into production-disaster (with the final few episodes delayed months), it earned a lot of goodwill with that "Enterprise, Engage!" sequence in its first episode.
    I was right! It's pretty terrible. It's an odd one in that in many ways, it's not dreadfully made. It's a decent PC port, provided you have a gamepad, which puts it leagues ahead of the likes of Kill la Kill IF. The cutscenes and character-art are decent. But then you get past the endless dialogue scenes and... my god... 1992 just called and it wants its basic low-tier PC 3d shooter back.

    I played the demo, it's a very Media Vision Shining game, though it was made internally at Sega: competent but nothing too exciting. Good voice cast but I understand it isn't fully voiced, which is a shame.

    I'll probably pick that up second-hand while I'm in Japan, that and 13 Sentinels.

    @ChiefGB I played the Sakura Wars title that came out for the Wii. The best way I can describe it is a mix of the storytelling-style of Tokyo Mirage Sessions (albeit slightly less stylish), with a combat system that was a massively simplified version of Valkyria Chronicles. It was ok and caught my attention because it was an actual proper game on a system that was never exactly over-burdened with those, but nothing to write home about. I'd genuinely forgotten about the series until they started ramping up the publicity for the new one.

    I downloaded the Sakura Wars demo but haven't got around to playing it yet. Similar with having bought the Wii one years ago (and regretted not importing the PS2 one which had a subbed version too) and not actually having played it...

    Might have been a bit harsh on Azur Lane: Crosswave. 5 hours in now and it does have some of the usual Compile Heart janky charm.

    Hey, now you are making it actually sound interesting.

    Just a quick heads-up - the Kingdom Hearts are up on the NZ Xbox store now, so will presumably be rolling out to other regions in the next 12-24 hours.

    Those there Kingdom Hearts games sound a bit mainstream ;)
    I have foolishly purchased so many versions of this series and despite keeping starting on number 1 I get very quickly sidetracked by other games. Not bought 3 yet although it is down to a tenner now and I doubt it will get a physical all in one with its apparently overpriced DLC (or will get it with a code like I recall Nier getting)

    They are, but I felt it was worth a nod seeing as they've apparently been sent out to die.

    KH3 is coming out on Game Pass very soon so there's that.

    Unfortunately I've not played 2 and there's no way I'm paying for it, so I'm not gonna play 3 anyway.
