That's why it's a prequel with the gears of lolis.

In case anyone remembers the BRS-themed browser game which imageepoch released last year; there's now an iOS version, plus a set of themed wallpapers to match.

Looks like there's a manga adaptation of The Game now.
Black Rock Shooter: The Game: The Manga?

The first chapter was scanlated a while ago.

Btw,if you clear the EX-Mission and don't do the record,you can't get it by re-entering the mission and you have to start the game all over again? Because I've been trying to make the records and nothing triggers T_T

FINALLY! Been looking froward the localization release date announcement for quite some time. I like BRS in almost all her renditions but the game's take on her and the universe is definitely the most intriguing to me.

I figured it would only be a PSN release, which is good because that means I'll have something to play on my Vita again and not have to buy a new PSP memory stick.~

Though I wonder how much the game itself will cost...

EDIT: I just read that it won't be available on Canada or Mexico PSN due to licensing issues. God dammit. Guess Youtube will be my best friend for this now.

Hope you live in the US because Canada and Mexico (And some European countries too) aren't getting it.

Nice, isn't it?

Even though it's been in the pipeline forever, it still feels like a ninja announcement. I'm not fond of digital downloads... then again, UMDs were kind of blah. I guess I'll check my memory cards for space or buy another one.

The actual game is worth playing, right? Right?

This sole game honestly isn't worth creating a whole other account for. I'm content with just watching a play-through on Youtube.

On the bright side it'll save me a few bucks too.

Honestly? No. The game is pretty mediocre.

The only reasons to buy it are if you are that big of fan for BRS franchise, or if you wanted the White Rock Shooter bundle that came with a figma.

Since this is apparently digital download, the latter reason doesn't even apply for us.

I like the idea of the game's story, they should just make that an anime series too.

I wouldn't be that harsh. I think the game is in general average. From a graphics standpoint I thought back then it was merely passable back then, so I assume for those playing it now it hasn't aged that well. While the story isn't exactly developed , some of the backstory was only explained outside the game (such as why the A-Class Aliens are not a lot) and a crucial plot point is just hinted at, I find leagues better than the animated version.
Gameplay wise it's decent, but can get repetitive, though I found the boss battles a bit more hectic than the normal ones.
Since it was announced back then but I want confirmation, did they cut "NO SCARED" from the opening?

Is that the metal song? Then yes, it's in.

I like it so far, but it could use some improvements, like adding preemptive attacks or maybe a jump option to spice things up.

I also think it looks really good, for what it is.

That's surprising. NISA hinted they may had to remove it.

Sadly some of the better skills that offer a little more variety are obtained only in the New Game+, which I recommend doing anyway for the Better End (as it was called in the JP version). What's interesting is that you just have to redo certain missions to get that ending and they're even marked, hence it's faster.

"Mediocre" does have a more negative connotation than "average", but that's what I was going for.

"Eh... it's okay, but not really that good."

Needing outside material to understand the story means the story itself isn't very strong on its own.

And I agree it's better than the anime, but that's not saying much at all

My problem with it was that the battle system is very middling. Some of the skills are essentially turn-based with their cutscene cinematics (see the Blade series and Charge Shot series), but it doesn't have any of the strategy or complexity of a true turn-based RPG like Pokémon or Shin Megami Tensei.
While there is movement, it's very awkward and restricted, so it doesn't hold a candle to any real hack and slash, beatemup, or action game.

The main reason why I played through with it to the end was because I like BRS. If this were a different franchise, or a completely different game with a set of unrecognizable characters, I'm not sure I would give it the time of day.
