Hmm. Never got round to this on PS3. If it's a Vita port I'd be down for that. Possibly not on PS4.

For anyone that cares, the countdown updated.

There are now 4 letters revealed, Revi, and there's a spinning wireframe model of the Hundred Knight. Not really too much to go from for now.

I guess all of that hype I have will only have to be postponed a bit longer.

Anyway, that certainly took me by surprise a bit though. I didn't get the news of the second countdown when I looked it up at first. It was at 0:00:00 and the music was playing. I left the page open to listen to the music for a while and then suddenly I heard a "hehehe" and suddenly Metalia was there.

So there´s a 21 days countdown now, the difference is that it shows metallia walking instead of the hundred knicht.......hopefully is a tease that means she will be playable :)

Gematsu saying we'll get news about it in tomorrow's Dengeki.

So hopefully we'll know at least whether it's a sequel or a remake by then, maybe even platform too.

Oh, so that's what that date along the bottom in the teaser was about. Though the date is for April 23, which for Japan is two days away I believe. Not exactly tomorrow but close enough I guess.

Either way, hopefully it does enlighten more on what this is all about. Though it does makes me wonder what else the countdown would be for then.

I think 23rd will be the date Dengeki update their website with the news, but tomorrow is when the hard-copy magazine releases and people leak the news online and upload scans and stuff.

Something like that at least.

Edit: The exact quote from Gematsu is:

"But we won’t have to wait 21 days for more information. According to the website, first details will come in this week’s issue of Dengeki PlayStation, which should leak tomorrow morning."

According to Dengeki it's a PS4 port.

Never got the original, so if NISA bring it over I'll definitely get it.

Aside from the graphical changes, I noticed that there is now a function where you can swap between weapon sets. That certainly was one of the things that a good amount of people noted was probably needed. Makes me wonder what other mechanics were introduced/changed.

Great, so now instead of a PS2 game, it looks like an HD remaster of a PS2 game that probably could've ran on PS3 if NIS knew how to code.

Instead, they're now going to directly port it to PS4 hoping the extra horsepower will make up for their own incompetence. Considering how unique PS3 architecture is, unless they put serious effort into this, it'll probably be more buggy than it's original incarnation.

According to Siliconera, Metallia might be playable. If that is accurate, that could definitely be rather interesting. There are a lot of mechanics tied to the Hundred Knight due to what it is so for Metallia to be playable, a good bit will have to be mixed up.
