I am really hoping they bring many if not all of the tracks exclusive to Special Stage back. Because of those exclusive tracks, I still think its better than any arcade stage.

There was such a little amount of tracks on AS4, im sure they are able to add more than just Happo. As great a track it is, I want to see more of them.

it seems, it's similar with special stage (arcade port with some story mode)

Look at the bottom right! It's Tomo!!

I bet the lineup for Happo is back to daiki, smiley and tomo!

What great timing to learn about this... I was excited because I was going to buy a Wii for the new Smash Bros this weekend but after seeing this... now I'm torn at getting a PS3 for this game. Plus I can find a PS3 anywhere-- the cash on the other hand...

Not to mention I leave to study abroad in Japan on that exact day the game is released in Japan so I can come home with it in my luggage.

I will definitely be buying a PS3 solely for this game. Online versus play FTW.

Preordered the Asia version on Play-Asia just now smile.gif Picked the fastest shipping option available, and getting the Asia version saves me a few bucks, has an earlier release date, and hopefully nets me a quickstart guide in English (lol).

I have not played ID since version 3/Street Stage. I had actually retired from ID with no intent of playing IDASv4 in the arcades, but since the console version is coming around in less than two months, I'm back in the game....without the use of tokens this time smile.gif

I personally hope they have EVERY stage from every game. Happo has already been revealed. The screenshots don't really show any room for other stages (i.e. there aren't any "??????" boxes on the stage select screen), but maybe they just did away with the "?????" options and just decided to add the courses to the list as you unlock them.

The courses still yet to be confirmed, shown, or otherwise added, are:
- Myogi (IDv1, 2, 3, Special + Street Stages)
- Usui (IDv1, 2, 3, Special + Street Stages)
- Akina Snow (IDv3)
- Shomaru (IDv3, Special + Street Stages)
- Enna Pass (ID Special Stage)
- Momiji Line (ID Special Stage)
- Tsuchisaka (IDv3, Street Stage)

Now I haven't played v4, but I've been watching videos as of late, and it looks a lot more "slippery" than the previous versions. Imagine Akina Snow in IDASv4/Extreme Stage... now THAT would be extreme.

If they decide to include a Story mode (like Special Stage had), it would only make sense to have all of the above mentioned courses in the game, so that manga/anime battles could take place on their respective courses.

I hope we get confirmation of more courses eventually. Can you tell how excited I am for this game?

If Siona is in this game, I'm definitely going to be buying it.

It was my best course in Special Stage, BY FAR.

It's an ID game for consoles that doesn't require a mod chip or buying a JP region PS unit. No-brainer!

Is there a translation of the famitsu web pages or magazine scans anywhere? Or is that just something you're assuming since ver4/Extreme Stage ends later than Special Stage did?

yes it can. the ps3 is region free for PS3 games only. you can't play imported ps2 games though. anyways if you have a PS3, please be sure to leave your Playstation Network ID so we have battles with the US members. hopefully will kill the lag issues we might encounter with battling against people overseas.

I personally preordered the Asia version because it's like 5 bucks cheaper and comes out 2 days before the Japan version. I also ordered the Asia version of ID Street Stage for the PSP when it first came out. If the Asia version of Extreme Stage is anything like the Asia version of Street Stage, it will come with a quick start guide in English. Helpful to us non-Japanese speakers.

Preordered with the fastest shipping option (FedEx/UPS), and had like $10 still on my Paypal, which cushioned the overal impact on my wallet a little smile.gif

I wonder how bad lag will be playing with overseas players. Hopefully it won't make the game unenjoyable/unplayable. Plus, we'll probably run into some people who imported it online smile.gif

Is it to early to start a PSN id list? Whatever, I'm "keisukeMamoru86". I can't wait for this to come out - ID and MGS4 will finally pull me off of COD4

The differences between different versions are few.

The Japan version is in Japanese (no duh), whereas the Asia version is in Chinese and (usually) comes with an English manual for some reason.

I don't know...are you sure the Asia version is in Chinese? Because with the Asia version of Street Stage I got from Play-Asia, I could recognize some Katakana and Hiragana here and there (off the top of my head, the characters for Irohazaka on the course select screen). The characters also looked the same at the matchup screen ("blah blah vs. blah blah" Akina DH wet, etc.)

Yeah I hope they include a language change option. How hard could it be to implement the story script, menus, etc. from IDAS4? It's not like they worked too hard translating IDAS4 to English anyway (one of the screens that probably should've said "Please Wait" says "Waitings..." instead)

I never played the Asia versions myself, but product descriptions listed the language as Chinese so I could have been wrong.

It does come with an English manual, that is a fact.
