    Nah, the news categorized in "PC/Console" at SEGA website: https://sega.jp/topics/171113_soft_2/

    It means it could be console only, PC only (very unlikely), or PC/console multiplatform.

    Great game, guys. Hands down the best Chinese to English release I've seen to date. The game is a solid mix of JRPG and C(omputer)RPG. It even has a faction system! Really like the combat system when it's set to "round" rather than real-time. I've had a number of challenging battles already.

    Absolutely. It runs around 50-60fps on my AMD FX-8350 and GTX 1060 6GB, but there are a lot of options to play around with. For example, my FPS suffers a lot from the in combat lighting effects, which you can switch off under "Combat Effects." It could certainly use some better optimization, but it runs really well with a little tweaking. I'm assuming if I had a better processor I wouldn't have any issues running it at a stable 60FPS both in and out of battle.

    OMG OMG

    Dorar slipped me a copy of the JPN ISO of the E: Original PC remake and I was fujcking heart-broken that it was super-duper encrypted in tons of ways that disallowed hacking it with the english lang. files from the PSP version... the graphics are fucking beautiful.

    true HD resolution and all of the icons, UI elements, all that shit looks fucking gorgeous. Not only am I now uber-hyped to replay E: ORiginal on PC, in English, with beautiful high resolution remastered sprite work and reworked UI elements...

    ./..but this ALSO means that Starfish is probably not gonna go bankrupt any time soon, and although we know that making a quick n dirty PC port which already has a translation done is not expensive for a studio, it at least signifies that Starfish is well aware of what games in their ouvre butter their bread, and I choose to be optimistic that this eng. language port of the PC "HD remaster" of Elmi: Original bodes glad tidings for the future of the series, or at the very least for the continued production of crawlers by Starfish.

    newtmonkey

    Heh, looks like you're gonna have to double-time your E: Original experience, cos you really really really do not want to miss out on the gorgeous work Starfish did scaling up (or whatever the fuck it is they did) all of the game's 2d artwork/sprites.

    I have no idea if it will but I assume that logically it will feature the revised/new-ish E: Original game script they did for the 3ds release, since it would be baffling for them to port the jpn PC version to english language with the (very, very) poor script in the PSP ver.

    Dorarnae

    hey, what exactly did they add to the E: Original PC ver.? I know there is no new actual content (dungeons/items), but did they do like with the 3ds "remakes" of Elminage games where they added in all the portraits they could borrow from the other Elmi games, the sound loading, face loading, etc and adding in music tracks from other Elmi games in the series?

    Exciting news, but I am 100% happy with the 3DS version of this one. The high res art looks great indeed, but it looks fine on 3DS to be honest... plus I like having a worthwhile game to play in bed before going to sleep at night :)

    It's a cool feature indeed (not a fan of the soundtrack in Elminage Original, I usually just play at night in bed with the sound/music off, so as to not wake my wife up haha)

    More than just the combat is a VP homage, though it is more action oriented than VP. Even summoning characters from a weapon is part of it, heh. You can 'execute' characters for buffs, not unlike releasing Einherjar. Sounds like there's C&C as well, but not sure how in depth it is. Edit: PS4 and Vita versions are wholly different, it seems. PS4 version pits you as Princess Cecille, Vita's MC is Legatus, who seems to have betrayed Cecille, and is a bit darker, and more antagonistic. I guess this gives the PC version 2 separate campaigns to play?

    Low metascore, high user score. Usually this is a pretty good sign that it's at least fun for its target audience. One of the "professional" reviews called it a "unique take on the ATB system." Jesus, these people are morons.

    Fantastic. And can be applied to Tales of..., Disgaea, action games and p. much everything else. As long as the only game you played in your life is Final Fantasy 7.

    :bravo:
