I really can't believe nobody has pushed out an English version of the game on physical media.

I can picture that korean PS4 release stay the only localized and physical one for a long time.

Because it feels odd, I mean they must have had a reason to publish it in that form only there.

Could be wrong of course but my 'missable alarm' went *DING!* when I read about it.

Limited Run has heavily implied that they've had something in the works for a English physical release, but nothing definitive yet

but if it does get a western physical release, I'd bet anything it'll be coming from them

yeah I know but...no
that was my point

that's exactly the kind of situation I had in mind saying it might not happen, wouldn't be the first time;
- waiting because a publisher said 'oh yes most certainly' or something
- time passes, only available edition (the KR one there) runs out, eol period
- western publisher later barely bothers with announcing they gave up on it

classic scenario

anyway even if I'm wrong and the physical west-localized Garegga happens I've spent only about 50+ zeni on the Korean release, which I can always resell for less if I ever care (not that having some korean text matters much)

So it looks like some people had to get both premium edition and Korean release

I was wondering if doing Premium is good practice for Arcade or if its hard enough you may as well go straight to Arcade. I can beat super easy, but honestly once I get to Junky Monkey I'm just going downhill at the cost of the extends I've stockpiled. I figure its worth taking at least the ships I havent used through Super Easy to get a little familiarity before going to Arcade/Arrange.

Also where does the name Garegga come from, is it a place in the story?

The 4 original planes are the "Gareggas", in the final version of the game the names were changed to G-101 etc but in the debug menu you can see older pictures of the plane descriptions.

Also, "Garegga" is apparently a misspelling of "garage".

I think it's time to let "Garage" die, there's no reason why the planes would be called Garage-3 or have Garage as their "G-" abbreviated codename meaning they're called Garage-1301 Wild Snail... Garegga is probably something like the ZIG in Zero Wing, it doesn't have to mean something.



Ok, actually, I got fired up a little and tried to dig up what Garegga COULD mean if it has to mean anything, by googling and filtering out anything to do with shmups, it seems it could be a misspelling or permutation of Gareggia, the Italian word for "to compete", Google Translate won't give you anything if you try to translate "Garegga" but it will accept "Tu Garegga" and turn it into "You Compete" and "Una Garegga" and turn it into "A Race"
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/gareggia
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/gareggiamento
https://translate.google.com/#auto/en/una%20garegga

This makes a lot more sense than Garage, it would make the game's title Battle Race or Battle Competition or just Battle Battle (in two different languages) for emphasis, and the ships would be something like Competitor-1, Competitor-2, or Fighter-1 etc, something in that vein.
A more correct title would be Battle Gareggiamento, which wouldn't brutalize the Italian language as much, and Gareggiatore-1 for the ships.

Another thing that fits with this is the title of Battle Bakraid, where the "Bakraid" part refers to the airshow battle of the game itself and is synonymous with "battle", Garegga would work the same way in being a reference to the battle of the game instead of some garages.

Also note that this word being Italian is not exactly as random as it seems, Shinobu Yagawa worked on Pink Sweets later in his career and that has a bunch of Italian references in the soundtrack titles and probably other places, references to Italy might be something recurrent with Raizing/CAVE.

"Garegga" is a bullshit word they made up during the planning stages of the game... basically, it's a corruption of Recca, but the individuals involved don't remember exactly where it came from--it might be derived from "Sugoi Recca", or "wagasha no Recca (our [company's] Recca)", something along those lines, and then they tacked on "battle" to make it sound cooler.

That makes a lot of sense, where does this info come from, was there any more? I could always go for more interviews or tidbits from the Raizing crew.

That reminds me, did a super robot anime has an attack named Battle Garegga though? I think it was Combattler V.

I forget the exact source... either the Bluescape book from the PS4 LE or just the devs talking on social media, I'll look it up again sometime.

Completely off-tangent but has there been any news of this getting released elsewhere yet? UK still hasn't had it, seems a bit of a waste porting to xbone and leaving out one of the only places where it's vaguely popular.

I bought the Asia region version via Play Asia, and just got shipping confirmation today (along with Defenders of Ekron), so I look forward to finally having this game in a physical form that doesn't cost more than a vital organ. However, if LGR decided to make an English-language release, I'd probably be all over that regardless. Better yet, if they work with someone to port it to the Switch :shock:

Lol, Battle Garage. "Hey man, you put your coin in, then there's a bunch of planes are parked in a garage, and when you pick one it takes off!"
