Well the Wii games are out too. Prince of Dawn and Daughter of the Dusk are the names in English.

No release outside of Japan if anyone's asking...

And errghhh... Can't get the beat of Broken Angel's first cutscene out of my head. It's so cool that it's not on the OST.

I've just learned that the next FMA game for PSP called 'A promised day' has been out in Japan. No news about the US release yet.

To my surprise I found a PSP game in the german amazon shop sheduled to be released on the 11th june.
I say 'a' because I'm not entirely sure if it's 'the' same one as the title is simply "Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood". Looks awfully like it, though. Only thing worrying me, that it isn't featured in the UK store. So even so it's says fully translated in german it could just be wrong information.

If it's released I think I'll get it, even so I'm unsure if it's worth it .. just with the faint hope other games might get translated, too XD

Alright, got the PSP game and finished the story mode with Ed. Didn't take very long about 1 1/2 h?

The game follows roughly the manga route. Very roughly. It's the same story, but you kind of rush trough it and just get thrown into fight after fight. Ed's story begins around the first encounter with Scar and ends after he escapes Gluttony's stomach. There are also some changes, like Ed and Al kill Lust (XD).

You level up and then can upgrade your battle skills. The battle system is fairly simple and the alchemy skills are easy to use. You almost always fight in pairs and utelize a combo special attack when you have enough energy. Cool thing: The characters look more battered the more HP they lose, Al gets a lot of holes for example.
The hardest enemies for me were Roy and Riza, surprisingly. Riza especially. God that chick is way too fast. I guess Roy is just posing around too much. Their combo was a killer D:. That fight was an optional 'mission'.
I can play their story modes now, too, after completing Ed's, wonder what that will be about. Also got a 'new game+', but dunno what purpose that might have, since you can revisit eberything with the old save anyway.


My first impression is so-so. I liked that they used the original japanese voices, but there were no subs in the menu or during the battles. It annoyed me I could only guess what lines they throw when a fight ended and the overall presentation isn't so good. The dialogues aren't very entertaining or tell much of a story. It's more like they give you the necessary information as fast as they can without further ado.
The focus are the fights and they are pretty repetitive and not that challenging. They are still fun, but far from Dissidia sensation for example. The special combo attacks are neat and look cool, but they get a bit annoying after a while because you can't skip them (even so you won't be able to use them more than once or twice per battle). It's the same with non skipable summons in a FF
It does have some charme, specially when you are an obsessed fan like me, but if it's truly worth 30 bucks? Dunno. I also don't want to judge before I've played more.

Still looking forward to the other story modes, I guess.

Spoiler for kinda offtopic - regarding firmware:


Here some pics if you want an impression, covers only three fights .. yes that crazy language is german :
Spoiler for screenshots:

Yeah, you can use costumes (and change the voice / lines) ... it's not that I like Ed in a pink shirt I just found the idea amusing to dress him in something he would hate

Just wanted to drop in to complain that ROY IS WAY TOO USELESS in the PSP "To the Promised Day" RPG game.
*gets burned*

Look at the screenshots that Zebra posted, and you'll see that it's not.

Wait you fight Roy & Riza why is that?

I would love to try out this game if I had a system to play it on. The problem is I don't.

My brother got the game and I'm playing it too, it's very entertaining. We've unlocked Roy, Riza, Scar, Mei, Gluttony, Armstrong, Izumi and Ran Fan so far. The game's so much more interesting as you get to play different characters, and as long as I ignore those annoying combination attacks, I get quite addicted. I'm wanting to play Bradley now but my favourites so far have to be Roy and Scar... although the Roy/Riza partnership is quite awesome, I have to say.

It's not bad for my first PSP game

I'm interested in this game so i need to know, is it true that the game was released in Europe? if so then the text is in english, right?

Because if it's in english i'm thinking about importing the game.

I got interested in the game because I played the PS2 game, and because of these images

It's based on the omake when Ed fights Mustang, I think. It doesn't have an explanation storywise, since it's an offtrack mission. You fight Ed and Al in their story modes, too.

Just tested with my version to be sure: Yes, it's in english, too - just as it says on the backcover. So as long it's stated 'manual and game in english' - it will be.

Gotta say it gets more fun as you get the other characters. Also like the characters differ in gameplay a lot (attacks, speed, range etc.).

The extra scenes you get for finishing a character's story are my favorite bit in the game, though. They are pretty amusing xD
If people who are PSP-less are interested I could post the epilogue pictures or even record them on a video, since I have the software already anyway (once I'm through all story modes).

I still wouldn't recommend it without hesitation, but it's a fun game for in between. But I bet that the PS2 games are better ... I'm stalking them on amazon and ebay for months now Not too easy with a PAL PS2 D:

Did the PSP game got released in other countries now, too? I'm looking at you Spain and Italy! .. since my manual is partly in Italian and Spnaish, too . And the EU releases are generally simultaneous ... but that would include the UK normally.

I'm pretty sure those are from the Promised Day RPG and not Brotherhood, the fighting game we've been discussing I'd love to try that one, too....

I have to say, they are very interesting pictures.....

Thanks i will try to import the game then, too bad the game is not planned to release here.
Oh and about the pictures or videos from the epilogues you mentioned i hope you can post some (because normally i don't finish my games 100% just once and that's all ).

Um yeah i know those are from the game, that's why i posted them here and said that the pictures got me interested in playing the game. My comment about "expanding" the manga's end was a joke

I said I might, so I did. I present you the extra gallery of the PSP fighting game "Brotherhood"! Meaning the extra scenes you unlock by beating the story mode.
Greed(Ling) and Greed are playable as well but miss the story mode - so no extra for them.

Quality isn't the best, but it's sufficient. I even made my PSP speak english so you have subtitles, wohoo! I'm just happy it worked at all and the sound and motion are synced so I won't bother anymore XD

If you are interested in the art, I can screen cap a bigger version (and way better quality) of all background pictures. Only if I like you, though

So here it is - spoilertagged in case someone hasn't finished yet and wants the 'price' unseen:

Spoiler for video~:


My PSP buttons are bitchy, that's why I sometimes have trouble to hit the next name right away
My playtime is exactly 20 hr 0 min! If that's long I can blame it on the buttons

^ Wow, that's pretty awesome, zebra! Ed's and Al's endings are way too cute!

No extra for Greed(Ling) is a pity though, I miss his voice.

Anyway, congrats on beating the game!
