      Pretty sure it’s gonna make it here, most people that own a vita want it.

        That’s true, but most PSP owners wanted Valkyria Chronicles 3 and Final Fantasy Type 0, too, and we see what happened in both of those instances. Sadly, I remain pessimistic until an official word from the developer/publisher.

          You’re comparing bandai namco to sega amd squeenix though, they don’t really care about the vita, bandai namco isn’t as bad as them.

            While that’s true, I just used those as examples of fans voicing their opinions and not getting what they want. Frankly, Bamco is a business just like Sega and Squeenix, and the fact remains that Vita isn’t that popular her as in Japan. I hope it comes, but I’m just not holding my breath for it.
