Although what's kinda funny with this, besides the Amazon listing, UFO Int. hasn't really officially annouced the game yet. Its not even mentioned on their official site or their social media, but I doubt that's going to change sometime soon.

Either way, since they do have a history for bringing both Raiden 3 and 4 over...yeah, I assume as much they'll do the same for 5.

Does the Xbox One version have voice volume and/or japanese audio options? If not, I hope the Director's cut adds them. I don't like the english voice acting at all.

There's voice volume options but no Japanese audio.

No version on Xbox One has Japanese VA, they're all English-only. Voice volume can be adjusted to your liking, even turned off completely.

Isn't it all in Japanese if you get the disc and don't download any patches? I recall a patch coming out that switched everything to English ahead of its Western release.

There weren't any Japanese voices to begin with, in the original disc version none of the dialogue is voiced at all.

There are two things that I find kind of surprising about this:
  • After the Raiden III and IV Overkill Steam and the Caladrius Blaze PS4/Steam release I figured H2 Interactive would be the one releasing the Raiden V port(s worldwide) - not UFO Interactive (in just North America).
  • UFO Interactive hasn't done a physical release in ages.

Another point of uncertainty is who is doing the port - Shanghai Riceman Technology Co., Ltd. did the Caladrius Blaze and Raiden IV Overkill PS3 ports but they haven't been active since mid-2014; I suspect that the PS4/PC ports of Caladrius Blaze were either done by H2 Interactive internally or subcontracted out by them. I doubt that MOSS is involved in the Raiden V PS4 port any more than in some kind of "directive" capacity.

Ultimately that listing on amazon.com may be the only opportunity to grab a physical PS4 copy (going by GameFAQs the "regular" version may be PSN only - UFO Interactive's usual MO) and may only happening because of the precedent of small print runs set by the likes of Limited Run, iam8bit, etc. The quantity of pre-orders could very well determine the size of the print run as I doubt UFO Interactive plans to have physical copies hanging around like they had from the Xbox 360 Raiden IV physical release.

PS4 and PC too, huh?
I'm still wondering what these new stages are about.

So what are you saying, does it have alot of chances of being rare? Cause I haven't gone ahead and per-ordered yet, I was waiting for a price cut, but if it won't be staying available for too long i'd better pre-order it.

For example Gravity Rush Remastered US Version was only available for a few months exclusively on amazon.com and then it suddenly was all sold out and hasn't been available ever since.

So new stages to go along with the addition of a 2-player mode? I assume new music to go along with those new stages too. Now I'm even more curious to see if/how they rebalanced the game. If they changed it up enough, it might actually be worth double-dipping.

No, if you play it unpatched there is no VA at all, though the text would be in Japanese of course. MOSS only funded English VA for the game, which is what all versions have once they're patched. After the patch, the language of the text is dependent on the Xbox One's region setting. For example, my Japanese version of Raiden V shows me English text in-game because my Xbox One is usually set to US, but I can make it all show up in Japanese again by switching my console's region to Japan.

They didn't print massive numbers of copies of Raiden IV 360 because they wanted to, they did it because they were forced to by Microsoft. During the 360 days at least, Microsoft in the US required a publisher to order a minimum print run of ~50k copies of a physical 360 game, which was fine for a mainstream game but ridiculous for niche games like shmups (for reference, the US localization of Deathsmiles which is the best-selling 360 shmup released in the US, only managed to sell through half of its print run at full/near-full price). This is why the US localizations of very niche Japanese games available on 360 are so cheap and easy to find.

On the flip side, Sony allows publishers to order very small print runs of physical PS3/PS4/Vita games, which in turn has made a number of them rare and valuable. This is also why companies such as Limited Run Games are able to exist.

I don't care about rarity but I also don't care for being in a position where I may have to pay more than I would have at release. At this point the circumstances around the availability of the physical release is speculation - but I'm in the "better pre-order it" camp. The price is pretty much in line with "Limited Run" releases; US$24.99 - 29.99 for the game and an additional US$15 for the soundtrack (though this one will likely not have a separate CD case, and the Astebreed OST was 2 CDs) - so I wouldn't hold my breath for a "price drop". The advantage here is that you don't have to commit to the typical LRG buying frenzy to secure a copy - you just pre-order it. Now there still is the danger of a CD in a PS4 case with a just a download code - but that risk is probably acceptable given that low quantity print runs aren't an obstacle on the PS4 right now.

The article lists 22 tracks in the soundtrack (which is the current size of the soundtrack), but it's noted as 22* tracks in the article, so who the hell knows what that means.

Well, the cheer system is still in the game. So maybe they switched to a different service, or made it offline-only.

Yeah, I just noticed that. Would be both weird and unfortunate if they just reuse the music already used for other stages, especially since I really enjoy the OST and would like to have more new tracks to listen to.

I don't see any changes, other than the edition of two players now.

Yeah, co-op is the only new thing in that trailer. Maybe they're not making any changes after all.

edit: MOSS said on twitter that it will have a new mission stage.

I hope they tie it to microphone input so you have to shout cheers into your mic to charge up the cheer gauge.

I was expecting a lot more than just co-op, though. If it's called "Director's Cut" there has to be a few more changes.

Really? In my experience "Director's Cut" simply conveys a few iterative refinements over the original. I think sometimes your expectations are largely driven by wishful thinking.

I'll be happy if the port isn't botched in a "PS3 Orange Box" kind of way (not that it should but there is always plenty of opportunity for some kind of failure).

Because I see a few movies with "Director's Cut" slapped onto the title. Like Blade Runner, Rambo IV, Aliens, to name a few.

I'm pretty chuffed this is coming to PC. I'd kind of given up hope when I saw this thread when it was first posted. Just presumed it was going to PS4 and that would be that.

Between this and Shikigami no Shiro coming to PC, it's been a good month for me and shmups. :)
