Welp, PS5 news hit today with confirmation that the console will have discs and feature backwards compatibility with PS4. So there's that.

I emailed Dispatch a few days ago asking if there was any news on the on-disc releases, and just heard back:
Quote:
The Cybattler DLC will be via a code included in the box.


I figured it would be that way since they only included it as an apology for the delayed release, but in case anyone needed it confirmed, there it is.


So, I got tired of waiting and picked up the Japanese Switch retail release on a trip to Tokyo last week (sealed copy from a Bic Camera store)... and was surprised to see that it included a redemption code in the box for the same Cybattler Blanche character DLC.

This makes Dispatch sound even more lame, since they're positioning the DLC as an "apology" bonus that they would have charged for if not for the delay... but the Japanese retail release included the DLC for the game's base price! Ugh. I still have the US version on order from Best Buy for $24 with GCU discount (order placed a good 7 months ago), but I don't think there's any reason I should keep the reservation and at this point I'm not very interesting in supporting this garbage publisher anyway.

I'm currently looking to see if I can cancel my pre-order (maybe through my bank since i ordered directly from the website?). It's pretty ridiculous at this stage. I'm glad the game is out on steam and in Japan but these guys have been nothing but incompetent.

Second that. I stopped looking for it on psn and will probably just buy the steam version when the price drops. Disappointing.

On YouTube, playthroughs of the original are like 11 minutes or something. And the new one is 18.
Any explanation for that?

I am no Psyvariar expert but I think some of the later stages are only available if you reach a high enough level. It's thus possible that some of the playthroughs you've seen do not go through as many stages as theoretically possible in a single run.

I was rooting for Dispatch games, but have to say I'm less than impressed.
I went ahead and ordered the Asian version they have/had listed on their website, because I was tired of waiting and I liked the artwork on that cover better than the others with odd looking children pilots on the cover.
I get the game and it's the children on the cover version - not the one pictured that I thought I was buying.

I also ordered a Clarice City Connection t-shirt just to show some support and to get a goofy tshirt. The print is the thickest iron-on I have ever felt, it is like plastic laminated on the front of my shirt. I didn't even know anyone made iron-on type shirts anymore. It looks plasticky and I'm sure it will wear-out and crack or shrink after a few washes and cycles in the dryer - but I'm not even going to wear it as it's uncomfortable with the plastic/rubber sheet across my chest.

I suspect that sales from their other couple releases were poor and they've gone broke. And shit, how many people were going to buy physical copies of Psyvariar Delta anyway? like a few 100, maybe?

Well, I sent Dispatch two different emails asking for a refund, and I have yet to hear back from them with any type of response.

I wrote them an email to try and cancel my order as well. No reply yet. Has anybody gotten a reply from these guys? Starting to feel like they took the money and dipped out.

We're about to hit the 1-year mark from my pre-order. I've basically written that money off at this point, and if I ever get the game it'll be a nice surprise.

Meh, well I was going to ask if any one had any info about the US release of Psyvariar Delta since this place seems to the best source for shmup info. I've emailed Dispatch and of course no reply at all. This all seemed very strange as the Japan Soundbox I ordered arrived on time and I just don't understand why there's not one hint of info about the US release for Switch. Been 9 months tomorrow...

...also, Hi.

^Welcome !

Well I finally breached 100m in Revision. Doing this requires actual boss milking, but I have a route which leaves me with enough bombs left for Gluon.

Also for those who are interested to see a demonstration of the new Delta stages then don't forget to tune into the electric underground shmup slam stream on Saturday! I don't go as all out on the bosses but I think the stages themselves are given a good showcase.

I'm actually surprised to say that Dispatch got back to me finally and they cancelled my order and gave me a refund. I kinda got impatient and started bombarding their FB and Twitter pages with complaints, so maybe that helped. Maybe I'll just go spend the refund on something I can play now, I guess.

Just posted on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/dispatchgames/ ... =3&theater

I'm Brian Schorr - the Founder of Dispatch Games.

Allow me to apologize and take full responsibility for the delays with Psyvariar Delta.

We have been working diligently behind the scenes to get everything completed and ship the game to you ASAP.
Obviously, we blew past our original dates considerably in the process.

This situation has involved a variety of issues and resulted in substantial process changes for us - but I won't use any of those as excuses. I know we let you down. I know the lack of information was not encouraging. I understand the concerns expressed.

The good news is -

We are addressing all of the issues so that they never occur again.

We aren't gone or disappearing as a company.

The game is coming. We are awaiting the final inbound shipping information before announcing a hard date again. We absolutely expect to make a hard announcement THIS month with details on shipping.

Anyone that ordered on our store WILL get the game shipped well before it ever sees a retail release. Store orders will also get the DLC pack for FREE as part of our apology for the delay.

Any shipping date you currently see online for retailers are currently placeholder and incorrect. We are working to address those issues.

Anyone that requested a refund will get one. Those are being reviewed and processed now. No one was, has been, or will be ripped off.

Trust is earned - and I will do everything in my power to earn yours back.

Brian Schorr
Dispatch Games

I hope this means the end of delayed shipments and radio silence. Still looking forward to my physical Psyvariar release, even if I've been playing on Steam for some time now. :P

Chances are the Digital will be $30 the same price as the Physical.

You might be right. The steam version is $30 and never seems to go on sale. I think this is overpriced, but that's always the way with obscure shmups.

Considering you are getting 2 games. It is a good price as is.

Hey, weren't they supposed to send out shipping emails, finally a year later, today? I haven't received any news. BIG SURPRISE. Holding out hope to add an "edit: nvm fixed it ;) " to this post, but come on. I want that Radirgy Swag in English but I still am distrustful.


edit: nvm fixed it ;)

Supposedly they've started processing shipments and are sold out.

Also it's more or less "good luck" as to whether or not retail orders will be all right? :/

Is there a standard edition for Switch? I can't find the Switch listings on their website.

edit: just answered my own question. looks like the standard edition is available at retail like Target and Best Buy

They'd originally promised to ship orders made on their site two weeks early...as of a few moments ago my order there is still listed as "unfulfilled". Maybe they said something about this on their Twitter or some other place I don't follow, but I honestly doubt it. Much as I'd like to support at least some of the obscure stuff they publish they need to get their act together before I consider buying from them again.
