    Apparently the PSP and iOS version of Lunar: Silver Star Story uses WD's script, but redoes the voice acting?

    So I won't get my hopes up for the Sega CD versions to make it to the US version of the mini 2. But it sure would be neat!

    So... we could get them with the text, but the original VA? Though if WD is defunct now, maybe the rights automatically go back to GA?


    Also, the PSP version was retranslated by XSeed.

    Ah, I missed the differentiation between the PSP and iOS versions there.

    I think the trouble is that hacking new VA back into the Sega CD version could be more work than they'd get paid for.

    I think most would be happy with the text alone, even if it means JP VA, though losing John Truitt as Ghaleon would be a blow(and I don't think the cutscenes have subs, not to mention the in-game voice with just sprites).

    So... just found out that this thing is apparently not available to Canadians. Not through Amazon.com, at least, and we don't get our own listing on .ca. Again.

    I... am not pleased with this.

    Nightmare scenario, maybe someone here would be willing to get it for you as a proxy?

    I'll try to get one for you.
    Edit: The US version is in the Amazon store and still available to pre-order. I have it in my check-out cart right now. Give me the word and I'll pull the trigger. We can work out the details later.

    Thanks, but you don't have to do that for me just yet. ^^;;

    While I doubt the situation will change, I would like to hear more of what we're getting, since this one's more expensive. It's really more the principle of the thing; the way they handled the SEGA CD/Tower of Power add-on for the Mini 1 was bad enough, but this is just insulting, particularly having the gall to label it "For sales in North America." That, at the moment, they've managed to top how badly the TurboGrafx-16 mini was handled impresses me.

    Curiously, I just now tried to search for the Genesis Mini 2 again (to check the wording), and no result for it came back.

    I'll be sure to let you know if we go for it, though. Thanks! =)

    You have no idea how much of a pain it is to find a decent priced replacement controller for the A500 mini. I was trying to get one from Retrogames, but it is absurd.

    You can use a Buffalo controller. So, I may say screw it.

    You can also use 8bitdo's wireless adapter and hook a wide variety of Bluetooth controllers to it.

    It seems like the A500 mini uses some kind of standard interface.

    I was just trying to get a controller that was made for it.

    If you really want the Genesis Mini 2, you'd better order it now - Sega said they're only shipping one tenth as many Mini 2s in North America as the original Mini.

    I wish they would announce more games for the US version. I'm looking at all these old WD games being announced and we have no clue if we'll see them on the US version. I'm really hoping so as I need easy access to the Lunar games. :(

    Since it's officially a Japan-only release, apparently, what's the betting the monkey's paw does its part and the games are included, but only in Japanese? I mean, hopefully not as at least those ones are badged as Genesis, not Mega Drive, but still...

    There is a separate North America list. If it's anything like how the mini 1 worked though, both region lists will be included on every console, no translations provided for regional exclusives though.

    Snatcher as an "NA exclusive" would be pretty damn sweet. Would mirror the Japanese version on the PCE mini.

    Eh, I went ahead and pre-ordered one from Amazon Japan since I had some credit over there and wanted a book that I was eyeing up. Shipping wasn't so bad since it is split between this and the book, plus the overall price was cheaper than the US Amazon price.

    I just have to remember to pay off the balance while the dollar is high.

    Ah, right, hadn't realised they'd set it up like that again. My bad!

    With supply constraints etc, this seems like a weird time to release it, too...

    Also, no sign of it on Amazon UK. Guessing it's import or bust over here.

    I'm literally waiting just based on whether or not it includes the WD games, and I'm sure that's most everyone else.
    (And this is coming from someone who already owns most of them!)

    Honestly, if that's why you're waiting, order it now. You can always cancel, but if they sell out you're screwed.

    Amazon Japan says "currently unavailable" and Amazon US specifically states it's not an item they'll ship to the UK.

    Yeah, if you're in a region where you can get it, get your order in now and cancel later if need be.

    Astro City Mini V get.

    I hooked it up using my computer as the power supply and played some Tatsujin.

    Lag didn't seem that bad but i don't really notice lag unless it's horrible. I would recommend waiting for a video by ShmupJunkie if you want lag testing before buying the thing.

    Specifically Nintendo of America, Japan got the 6-button one. Which I joked about because Sega had done the same thing with the Genesis Mini 1.

    If you want that physical device--which is a good enough reason in of itself--it makes sense, but as someone who already noted they prefer the original rectangular model, and has Hakchi set up for the Megadrive mini, this is very difficult to justify. You could just put the games you want on it, most obviously.

    (Except the Sega mini consoles have a weird bug that any hacking--added games, removing them, whatever--breaks the input for one preincluded game, Alisia Dragoon for some unknown reason. Though you could just add another copy of the same game to fix the issue.)
