Finally! An homage to a game worthy of exaltation!

This is a game that deserves--nay, *needs*--a reboot, or at least a continual.

The premise is awesome and it'll indubitably introduce troglodytes to this amazing game.

The 3rd birthday is a reboot, kinda. But SE messed up a lot with the story :(

Now i can only replay PE 1 & 2 on my vita and wonder when will SE make PE 3...

What a great read, thanks for this! I replayed this game a few years ago and it still holds up! The characters, writing, music, set pieces, CG, gameplay mechanics-- all of it combines to become a truly unique and special RPG. And that running animation.... Haha. But I had no idea how the game originated, or where SquareSoft got the idea. I remember I imported the PE movie well after I had played the game and I was so bummed that there was no NYC, NYPD, or really too much of anything to do with the game outside of some of the science with the Mitochondria and whatnot. And it wasn't until this recent play-through that I got Maeda's mention of the "Japanese" incident. It all makes sense now! Great stuff. =)
