Nice Ex+ is coming over I was hoping it would. I'll definitely grab it.

Stable 60 fps except for the last ex+ boss (though it might not happen in PS4 Pro or PC), but other than that.. well, a more balanced difficulty where it's actually frustrating when you're trying the hardest difficulty on 1st playthrough, more stories, better gameplay system since some enemies need to be hit with strong melee attack to break their shield instead of the vanilla one where you can just spam long-range attack and wait for X-Drive... also what else? Oh right, new playable characters and more character info to put down on your character notes.

Also it kinda explains on one mystery that wasn't really answered in the vanilla game, mostly about what happened during the Tokyo Calamity. Although it's more like a teaser instead of explanations though

For me when it comes to RPGs I want to get the full story if possible, so that's what will make me buy Ex+ rather than the vanilla version.

So is the vanilla hardest difficulty harder than Ex+? You say EX+ is more 'balanced' but then mention it is also more frustrating? I'm confused which version is more difficult.

Yeah, I'm a sucker for hard games (even frustrating ones like hard difficulty Type Zero where you get one-shotted by literally anything, and the only way you can kill even trash mobs is through killsights XD), and ever since I got my interest picqued by this, I might as well play it with a challenge. This game got me interested because while the main heroine isn't childhood friends with the MC, I believe one party member and one really important story character is one was well.

It's more balanced in a sense that because the vanilla Xanadu was piss easy even in the hardest difficulty (not sure about the limit run where enemies get boosted level at 2nd playthrough because I never play it in both versions though) and that Xanadu+ fixed that by increasing the difficulty which makes the hardest difficulty matches it's name...hence why I said they 'balance' it. For example, you can get a couple of scratches from enemies in hardest difficulty and you won't feel a thing except if you just stand around doing nothing while in +, a single hit might prove fatal. Normal mobs won't one hit kill you but it'll take huge chunk of your hp. The mini boss or strong enemies in dungeons might be able to one hit you though

Anyway to make it simple, hardest difficulty in vanilla version doesn't feel like one while in + version it actually feels like one. Also what I mean about frustrating is that until some point of the game, you'll have a hard time to stagger the mobs or bosses so you'll probably end up getting scratches here and there while killing bunch of mobs. Since they took large chunk of hp...it makes it kinda frustrating to beat for me It's still possible though but I'm just not good enough for that so I lowered the difficulty

Well, no doubt I'm stoked about this news about TX, but I still find it odd that it's Aksys taking care of localization this time around, especially when Xseed's been handling Falcom duties for close to a decade now, heh. Maybe the Xseed guys' hands were too tied with the Trails games to focus on TX? I suppose that would make sense. Makes me wonder what will become of Ys 8.... will it be Aksys handling duties for that game, as well? I mean, that's ALSO getting an updated PS4 version with exclusive content like TX did, so.... maybe?

Game is out on Vita today.

That said I'm still on the fence whether to get it now on Vita or wait for Ex+ in November.

I'm thinking of getting both if ever. It's the summer drought right now and the only thing going for me right now is FFXIV.

So I bought the game on Vita and will do so again in November to tide me over until SenIII comes out. That said, 4 hours in, I can tell that for this version Sora is the true Waifu.

Given that, I really think Falcom has a thing for making their main characters literal Chick Magnets. Joshua has 2 or 3 more going after him despite being with Estelle, Lloyd is surrounded by such women at work and throughout Crossbell, and Rean has head patted at least half of all Erebonian women of childbearing age. In this game Kou despite being characterized as a friendly loner still has women attracted to his gravitational field.

On that note I have a question:

Yeah but he's a cool guy to friend and talk to so I'm not really surprised. Also unlike in Sen and Crossbell series, girls attraction towards him doesn't really develop to love interest other than couple of characters

I have to say I REALLY wish they gave the translating job to XSEED. Not to knock on Aksys's work, they did a fantastic job on the Danganronpa series, but the game's English script needed a good lot of proofreading and editing. Lot's of formatting errors, typos, and a few lines that feel like it was machine translated. Not to mention a few obvious quirks with some colloquial terms and inconsistencies.
