Looks great, but I don't really like the 3D top-view Kairosoft titles as much because of the emphasis on scenery placement and optimization. I'm pretty OCD about that stuff so when I realize that my set-up is really un-optimal and it's too costly to change it, it makes me feel really bad

Waiting for: Chaos Rings II, Phoenix Wright 123
I will always love: Kairosoft and CAVE Co. Ltd., Capcom, Godzilab, Simogo
Feel free to add me on Gamecenter; I'm Kirbychewy!
Dodonpachi is no longer my favorite iOS game.

Looks utterly fantastic and I'm not only referring to them lovely isometric graphics. Getting to play in the Edo period without having to murder scores of peasants on a battlefield sounds too refreshing to ignore.

I am exactly like you. The combo system and object placement makes me go crazy. I will stick to GDS and GPS.

Don't think that matters. Just like the rest of the Japanese releases it will come on international stores a few weeks after the release.....

Ikr? They used to hold off for like 4 months before releasing or even announcing a new game. Now it's like 4 DAYS before they announce a new one.
