I was actually checking the JP PSN like an hour ago and could've sworn the latest content was the Siren demo. Did they take this down? Either way the only fighter for me this year is SC4.

Yep, it is there. Downloading... Looks awesome.

It's still online and available to download. I really like the game...I'm going back to play more of it. :D

DJ when you learn how to do some more of the specials and combos, post a video man, I'm really interested in this new fighting game.

There's a demo of this game now? Might have to download it while I play more GTA4 on my 360 :P

Yeah no offense to DJ, but he made this game look terrible

It looks a lot more related to Guilty Gear

This game owns. It is a pitty we won't see it, well at least a Pal version of it. Anyway I don't care I have already preordered my copy from Play-asia for the 360 (I have an Hori Stick) and can`t wait to try it out.
By the way, Raiden Fighters Aces it is a blast, a really good compilation, and like this Battle Fantasia it is a shame that it won't leave japan.

Is 360 region free? That is something I was curious about... or does it have to be modded?

Certain games are, some aren't.

I tried the demo, it was OK. Visually it reminds me so much of Eternal Sonata. Although I don't think I'd buy it because there aren't many characters and I didn't see a whole lot of apparent depth to the game.

According to 1up, the game is headed to the NA.

i agree on the character roster, but as far as depth, you're right you didn't see it, but its there, wait awhile, the pro's at this game will surface soon, there's almost TOO much depth!

Sweet.. I wanted to try this when I first saw the arcade tests. I did not realize there was a home conversion planned so soon. Arc System Works <3

I guess it's time to create a Japanese PSN account.

They have US versions too.

This game is just awesome, the story mode is a bit too much talking etc, but the vs mode is pure fun :D

Love the art style too, there are some really nice moves also.

Think I might get this instead of SF4 TBH, and I'm sure it will come to the west at some point.

Arc knows their stuff.. Capcom should have hired them to make SF4 instead of Dimps ;)

I'm liking the art style and the graphics but doesn't the game feel so shallow and easy? I saw only around 3-5 basic attacks in that video and the opponent wasn't even fighting back! The whole game seems like a walk in the park...something you'll finish in a day.

It's a fighting game.. what fighting game can't you finish in a day, unlocks aside? And any fighting game looks simple when the person playing it doesn't fully understand how the gameplay works.

I wouldn't know for certain that the game has any particular depth, but I do know that Arc System Works knows how to make a good fighting game.. so I'm hopeful.
