    I hate that they got rid of the original Japanese cover art. It was way better

  • Gonzora

    So, delayed again, 432 pages instead of 512 and to replace the amazing Japanese cover, we have images from the psn themes. Well. Fuck u Prima Games.

    • Chris Jackson

      Those came in the Japanese version too, so we don’t get anything special.

  • Dionissios Mposkos

    I’m really underwhelmed.

  • Good thing I asked my cousin to buy me the japanese version!

  • Rob

    What a great day to release it on. Everything else…not so much.

  • daniellllle

    can someone tell me what’s the difference between this copy of the artbook and the japanese one? is there anything different about what you get in both, apart from the language differences of course. just wondering where those extra 80 pages in the japanese version went.

  • DarkJokerOfAmuro

    wait….. why is it 512 pages in japanese and almost a hundred less in the English version…. prima what are u doing???

  • ScarredBushido

    it has got less pages then the japanese ver and still delayed. i’m just going to buy the japanese version instead

  • KokuyoKid

    if it was Pokemon or Zelda then they would’ve published it on time!! Jesus, I am getting sick and tired of this bulls/*t!!

  • Two delays and eighty pages of content cut. I don’t think I’ll support this.

  • Bunny-Boo

    What the heck man. Maybe I should just cancel the preorder. Besides, the japanese version is way better…
