Yeah, i think everyone outside of Japan and Korea has waited enough now. They could at least give a date at this point...i mean, come on. It's been out for such a lopng time in arcades. Console release before i die of old age plx.

I don't think PC has been officially announced, could be wrong though. Doesn't matter much for me though. Got my HRAP4 ready to go, now i just need the game :P

That transition from cutscene to fight though? Looks really nice. Cool way to do it.

I think it's been expected to drop spring 2017 for some time now, but it's good to see them confirm it at least.

  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: yea, viewport performance in maya has improved the last year or so on geforce cards, it used to be hamstrung. (53 minutes ago)
