    Not often I use the phrase "too good to be true" these days, but this is the right moment.

    Even if we never get the DS version, this is fantastic news.

    It looks like 2012 might mark a resurgence of the JRPG on consoles. Cross your fingers.

    A shame it's coming near the end of the current generation, but great news. Nice crop of games coming out next year. Looks like it's time to finally look into a PS3.

    EDIT: I suspect the main holdup on the DS version was the book that accompanies the game. I can see GameStop refusing to stock that due to shelf size considerations, and the fact that it makes pre-owned sales a royal pain. Not to mention additional localization work and production costs.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    I read it exactly the same way. I don't know anything else about the game, but that's all I needed to see, heh.

    This is the one piece of news I've been waiting for above all else. Finally proof that Japan loves us, and wants us to be happy. Also, the final confirmation that I will be getting a PS3 by the end of this year.

    I love Level 5 and JRPG's, and them teaming up with Studio Ghibli is fricking fantabulous, can't wait for this to release here.
    Still holding out for the DS version as well, but as long as we get the beautiful PS3 version I can't complain.

    I hope it goes exactly the way Bigmark puts it.

    OK, so I know I seem pretty picky, but I gotta ask. Is the PS3 version going to have the magic book too? It should. A real book to accompany your game like that is just genius.
