This game was largely a hidden gem ignored by the masses now getting over hyped becoz of nier automata, hopefully this game doesn't make people expect to much haha

From what I can tell they're doing a lot more than what the term "updated version" would suggest, so it's not like it will be the same game that released back then. But it is true that living up to Automata would be a very tall order.

Actually if you look for games exclusive to Japan and several mangas/animes that didn't got released worldwide you'll see a lot of very long names =p must be common over there.
