I think these kinds of games I personally prefer playing on the go eventually, but sucks for those waiting for this port.

NISA has been incompetent for a while now so it's not very surprising to see them staying the course. Hopefully Falcom doesn't give them anything else to f*** up.

Sorry for ignorant question, but how's NISA being incompetent? I really liked their Disgaea 1 and 2 PC ports.

If you read the article they are delaying it because the port to PC is clearly not up to the quality they want. Way better that they do something like that then release some half-ass broken port and then maybe give us a patch a few months down the line. Looks like they will have to modify the core programming to get it to run at an acceptable level on PC.

Waited until a couple weeks prior to initial release do a beta. Beta full of problems. Announced at the last minute that the game is delayed.

Supposedly did work in the 4 months after the first delay. Announced the PC release will coincide with their "unf*** our lazy localization" patch at the end of this month.

Again waited until a couple weeks prior to release to do a beta. Again delayed after beta still full of problems. In the announcement of the delay they admit to not actually doing anything to make the game work on PC (seems they were trying to brute force it) and that they're giving it to a new developer at the end of the month to work on. Dunno if that means another in house developer or someone else altogether.

It's going to have a market value of $20 tops by the time it exists. Bet they don't get hired to localize anything for them ever again.

lol at unf*** their own localisation. To be fair, their latest PC ports was quite decent tho, nowhere near incompetent. Except for this game lmao

If it wasn't also coming to the Switch I would've thrown a fit.
I will rule the world, and find that truly good cup of coffee.

this is the 3rd delay,
first delay was after ppl played the beta and they announced the pc ver delay
on the same release day,

now they did that again after ppl tested the 2nd beta
and announced the delay 2 weeks later.....aka 10 days before release

"As the PC version of the game was originally envisioned as a port, we avoided touching the core programming as much as possible and focused on PC performance optimization. However, in light of the feedback of those who have participated in the second beta test, we have concluded that we cannot avoid modifying the core programming."
So apparently, they fail to understand that, in order to make a 'good' pc port they HAVE to modify the core system so that the game will be compatible to run on PC instead of PS4, that's what a 'port' is. But instead they think they can just toss the game on an emulator or something and the game will be fine with a few optimization. Really speaks a lot for their competence.
