...on PS 3, but the Japanese PS 3 release is in November, so that's not such a bad release window.

I, for one, am glad Level-5 switched gears from "No localizations" to "Oh, you meant THOSE localizations! Yea, we'll get right on it!"

I've been interested in this for a while, but I haven't really heard much about the gameplay...anyone know what it's supposed to be like, other than turn-based?

Hopefully the DS one will come out too.

I think the DS one is toast due to the platform being pretty dead, sadly.

At the very least, there's still DS backwards compatability in the 3DS. Does the PS 3 version also have a big-ass book?

I think it'd HAVE to, since the game makes you go to those pages.

Heh. I have both a PS 3 and a DS, so which one it comes to doesn't matter, nor does any official European release as both consoles are region-free.

I will probably wait, though. There's plenty of other stuff to get like The Last Story, and all of those delicious games coming soon (Q4 2011 -Q2 2012. Oh, and I haven't played either of the ports mentioned. If you have played them already, replace them with Dark Souls and Sonic Generations or something.)

it seem same team that make DQ
This isn't quite entirely true. They helped with the programming and graphics of two Dragon Quest games(VIII and IX), and that's about it.

These are the people who made Dark Cloud I and II as well as Rogue Galaxy and White Knight Chronicles. Their console RP Gs usually have some issues, but they land in the upper echelon of jRPG creators. I'm looking forward to this.

EDIT: The announcement was made at a Sony event. The lack of a DS announcement might not mean anything.

actually i thought the no localization thing was because they didnt have an american branch?

now they do and were getting layton 4, ni no kuni and theyre strongly hinting at layton vs wright

either way: OH HAPPY DAYS!!!

Most excellent! I've been interested in this game for a long time. Nice to see Level 5 localizing it!

I'd be even happier if they do an American release of Inazuma Eleven but hell, that's probably not happening. A dude can dream, though!

Hmmm, the DS version's gameplay does sound kind of interesting, but have we found out anything on the PS 3 version's gameplay?

BOOK. I WANT BOOK.

I also kind of want to play the cell-phone prequel, if only because it's a big homage to the MOTHER series.
