Despite the apparent non-tactical gameplay, I'll probably look into it. Though, it looks kinda like they took Kingdom Hearts and gave it a pair. :p

...well, at least the main character does.

Cool. I appreciate being able to at least get a look at this game that I'll probably never have the opportunity to actually play.

Very nice looking character designs. Like Shining the Holy Ark, they've managed to create beautiful variety in the cast without resorting to a huge diversity of species. (Though I must say, I can't help but think that the main character must be compensating for something whenever I look at that sword.)

It's the same way in Shining Force EXA. If the weapon is 2 handed, there is NO WAY Toma should have been able to wield it. Hell, you'd have to be a giant to comfortably wield them.

That's the Japanese release date, right?

Unless I've missed something (entirely possible!), I didn't think there were plans for Cross to leave Japan...

Damn, Moogs is gonna have to slpash some moolah out to get that one, too... Isn't it the Arcade-only title?

Yeah. Wouldn't it be something to have that huge cabinet shipped halfway around the world. You can't get shipping charges much higher than that!

Well, assuming they don't have a specialist cabinet, you can get the boards and decals for the game and slap them in a standard cabinet... The trouble comes if it has a unigue button config/feature of some sort that requires a specialist cabinet.

In fact, in the early 90's there was a bit of a problem with a lot of SNK arcade titles having a board that would fit and play in the NeoGeo console. People could swipe the boards right out of the back of the cabinets and play them at home, as long as they didn't mind a circuit board sticking out of their console, rather than a nice cartridge!

Remind me again why they are wasting this title by making it an arcade game that will never make anything outside of Japan instead of making a quality title and slapping it on a real console?

Each cabinet is roughly 37000 USD not including shipping and taxes to your country yet. You'll need four. Also need to get the data cards to keep all your relevant data, and find 3 competent players to play with.

The game is fast paced action MMORPG style and can get quite hard if you lack teamwork or the person you're playing has no idea what they're doing. If they ever put this on a console, it may be online multiplayer.

This game has story for its respective story mode. Typical boy meets girl and saves world type of story.

Just that most playing don't really bother and jump straight to the co-op mmorpg style multiplayer.

I doubt it. The series has always jumped around in format, producing console and handheld entries at the same time. Now they've just added arcade games to the mix.
