Comments

Let me know when Okami gets a physical release in English. Although the Japanese copy comes with English the Japanese characters on the spine look weird with the rest of my games.

You can let me know if you want. I want it on Switch though not Wii.

You all might want to try out the Valkyria Chronicles 4 demo. It's extensive and the save data from the demo carries over to the full game. I've been playing for 3 hours and recently reached chapter 2 and nothing has indicated that it'd be ending soon. It's enjoyable and different from what I was expecting. It's like Advance Wars made in 2018 with a slightly more anime aesthetic.
