  1. Hell yesh! Now I gotta get my disc back. Chances are the patch will be out by August in NA.

    • The patch is definitely coming out in May in North America. The press release just didn’t say exactly when.

  2. Getting this for the 3DS hopefully, I’m hoping that I can put in the same hours of GG: Judgement, Can’t seem to play the console versions for long :(

  3. So this won’t involve a new story, right? Because I’d hate to have to buy the same game with a minor patch to get the rest of the story.

    • This patch really isn’t all that minor at all. It completely changes the balance of the game and drastically changes the way certain characters are played.

      I don’t believe this update includes any additions to the story. The 3DS version actually does I believe.

  4. Its madnedd this game, but doesnt take much to get to grips with it, my bro adores it!
