Played the first hour or so last night of Tokyo Mirage Sessions, and really enjoyed it.

Love the old school turned based battles, and the upgrades / skills are thrown at you rapidly.

Love the anime sections, very well done.

Port of a 7 year-old game where the sequel is already on the Wii-U. A bit random!

I believe they're also rereleasing it on XBONE and PS4 too, so you have to give them credit to not only not forget us but fill the upcoming void a little. Besides, given that thy gave away the sequel via Humble Bundle, I guess they're hoping that'll sell the original. :lol:

Games are looking a bit thin on the ground now.

Just as well I have a silly backlog.

I completely forgot to download Fast Racing Neo so this is welcome news. Always prefer a physical release too so double bonus.

I should finally be getting a Wii U very soon. :D

One thing i'm having trouble with though is locating a specific type of game pad protector online. It's like a plastic shell cover that you clip on an it covers the entire face of the game pad. It's not the Hori flip cover thing and it's not one of those plastic/rubber cases that go all around the gamepad but leave the screen and buttons open for use. It's thing that just clips onto the front and covers both the screen and controls. I've seen it in blue with a Mario design.

Does anyone know what I mean and where I can buy one? I want it to protect the screen as i plan to take my Wii-u around to different people's houses a lot.

Ah found it, it's called a faceplate, by Hori.
