Any other Popolocrois fans here?

I've mentioned this game in a lot of my posts during my time on this forum...but, I'd like to know because the game isn't all that known. Like the majority of people I only played the PSP game which is a compilation of the first 3 games I believe? I got the PSP game in 2007 just after I received a pre-owned PSP from my cousin. It was all I ever played on that

It's great. Definitely one of my favourites. I just wish they'd translate the original PS1 games to English. It's a shame that it has become a forgotten gem. In the west it doesn't really have much of a following at all. I guess it was popular enough in Japan back in the day.

In terms of difficulty it's not hard at all unfortunately. But, judging by the art-style they definitely tried to make it "kid-friendly." I'd imagine the PS1 games are harder.

Still yet to play the 3DS Story of Seasons game. It looks alright but obviously, it's not traditional Popolocrois.

Strange, my cousin had that game for PSP and he didn't like it so he gave it to me. I still haven't tried it for some reason.

My first tactic RPG, at the base I'm really not a fan of games. So graphically beautiful. The scenario and quite addictive, a combat system quite simplistic in itself, lively music. This games and simply sublime.

@glitch-: One of the things that really turned people off it was the English voice acting during the few Anime-styled cutscenes. I found it bearable though. The voices I thought suited the characters well anyway.
