    Woah, some of the best 2D -> 3D adaption I've seen!

      Exactly my thought as well. Ridiculously impressive that there's no uncanny valley at all.

    Hope I can get this for Vita, preferably on cart.

    Got right near the end of part one & keep not finishing it because of Elder Scrolls Online.

    Disappointing that they're not putting all the characters from the first one back in. They aren't even putting the main character in (by which I mean Yangus, who is the main character in every game he appears in, and some that he doesn't).

    I always loved Akira Toriyama's work, there's something I just can't describe about the characters, and they did a truly fantastic transition to 3D.

    Also is it just me or could Terry easily pass for Trunks Brother or kid?
