its not due for release in New Zealand/Australia untill the beginning of next year but it's already been released in Japan and North America. A few guys in my course have played this game and said that its amazing. On Monday i should get a "Magic Swap" for my PS2 so i can play it also. I am so freakin excited about this because the reviews say its got a new battle style which sucks at first but is very very cool once you get used to it. When I get this game sometime next week, i can guarantee that I will not be on this forum very often, and i wont be going out in the weekends either. Is there anyone else out there who has played it or is looking forward to its release?
