Here's a summary for people that might not know the game by it's name.

This is the JRPG that Studio Ghibli did the artwork for, and has a soundtrack created by Joe Hisaishi.


There's also a demo on PSN.

Just picked up my copy with a pretty steelbook case.



Still bummed that I missed out on the Wizard's Edition, but I'm just happy to finally have the game. biggrin.gif

Studio Ghibli is part of my childhood. I play sheet music from Joe Hisaishi on piano all the time now... Maybe from where you're from only weeaboos would know about it since it is from Japan. But for a lot of us here on the West Coast at least, it's at least somewhat well known.

Miyazaki's movies (Studio Ghibli) are amongst the top 100 in IMDB also thumb.gif

oh that sucks. I had this on reserve on my lovefilm game rental list whilst i had a 2 month free trial. The quoted uk release was the 25th and it's been pushed back til the 1st Feb! My free trial ends on Saturday frown.gif I've already downloaded the demo to play before my subscription ends to decide whether its worth paying for a 1 month subscription to get it. Has anyone here played it yet?

I played the PSN demo last night,

The music, artwork, world map, everything about it is breathtaking.

The combat system is great as well, it's not complicated, yet it's still more complex than turn-based combat.

My only complaint from the demo is the horrible World of Warcraft dwarf voice that Drippy has. it's completely out of place for this game and for me, at least, it kills the mood.

The demo has translation errors, but it's a demo, so that's not an issue.

Played the demo today and loved everything except...the combat.
I maybe was doing something completely wrong but the 2 bossfights it put you in were not challenging but long and very tedious.
Unless the mana regen majorly improves later there is no way i will pick this up but will just watch a lets play on youtube to see how the story goes.

Mana regen was annoying but I couldn't base anything on it. The game has items for mana that might be easily obtained. The demo was a little too limited for me to know for sure.

Yeah, tried playing it last night and I'll admit.. took me the entire demo time just to defeat the spirit of the woods. Didnt realise you could move for ages (thought it was like ffxiii). Hopefully its like most rpgs that once you progress a little you can start dealing more damage and defeating enemies a little quicker.
