    Got some time today and played it a bit more straight campagn now.

    Selected Hikaru again, of course.

    I got up to the second part of the Everlasting whatever dimension or something, with the confusing moving vertical lines. The first part was in GERWALK mode and rather easy, but Basara's VF-19 keeps getting annoying as a tag-along.

    Enough for the night. I'll pick it up maybe next weekend.

    That said, my favorite dimension so far is the Remembrance., where Regulds, Missile-Regulds, N-Jers, and Q-Raus are the enemies. It's just really cool to battle against them than against the Vajras, Varautas, and Drakens. At least, visually.

    Guess I'm just so easy to please with DYRL enemy mechs...

    Do you know Japanese or are you even bothering trying to figure out what is in the cutscenes? I'm looking for a way to understand the game without holding my phone up with Google translate open the whole time.


    Also, is that a Sean Price sticker in your above photo?

    I don't bother with the cutscenes. I think I have it to be skipped when I set the Demo setting to Off on the pilot-menu.


    Which sticker?

    I have no idea about any "Sean Price".

    He's a rapper who often just goes by "P!" because that was how he would say his name is his raps. Here's an example of a shirt of his, which I thought of when I saw the "P!" sticker in your photo:

    Well, my P! sticke was the FLCL logo that came with the dvd' back in the day:

    edit/update:

    At any rate, I've completed the Story Mode in Normal level using Hikaru, and here as some screenies:

    Not really sure why Alto's in that Trophy pic, instead of just Hikaru and his VF-1S. Weird.

    As such, the Arcade and Boss Rush gameplay options are now unlocked.

    So, stuff I wish this game have in story-mode:
    • FAST Packs (Super and Strike), GBP Armor
    • Roy Focker, Guld, Max, Milia, Nora, DD pilot-selections
    • VF-0S/VF-0D, YF-21/VF-22, VF-4x, VF-11b, VF-5000, YF-29/VF-29, VF-31AX valk-selections.
    • Custom valk skins!
    Maybe or hopefully BushiRoad will offer all or some of these as free DLCs soon...

    I read there's supposed to be an English language release "later in 2024" but I don't know if I trust that.

    so a little update on this game since I'm still playing it:

    • beat VF-1S Max with Hikaru several times in the Ace Battle to unlock all DYRL cards, I guess.
    • I beat Max a couple of times with Shin/VF-0A, too.
    • Completed Story-mode again with Shin and Isamu, unlocking Nora and Guld in the Ace Battle.
    • Nora was easy with Shin. Beat her several times already.
    • Isamu's YF-19 is just so weak against the YF-21. Haven't won against it.
    • in contrast, Hikaru's VF-1S easily made minced meat of the YF-21.
    Currently going thru Story-mode again with Gamlin and will use Hayate and Alto afterwards.

    All just to unlock the other remaining Aces (Gigil? , Messer/Keith?, and Brera).
