  1. There’s still no mention of it, and at this point, it’s likely that there isn’t going to be full voice acting in this game. It’s not a deal breaker or anything, but it feels like such a missed opportunity. It worked well with Devil Survivor and Radiant Historia, and those were 3DS enhanced ports of DS games.

    On a more positive note, if that special edition is released for the west, I’m totally getting it!

  2. Feel free to re-ban me, but I just feel my point has to be made. I don’t care if a game has voice acting, since 99.99% of the time I just skip through the text if possible, and am too impatient to sit through unskippable dialogue. I’d much rather the music be the voice of games.
