Ee, neat, this looks like as good an excuse as any for me to finally go back and play through all of Zwei!. ^^; And for me to...umm...finally pay for it? <_< I like the fact that they're adding voices, too. When I was younger, I often wished I could disable most of the voice acting in the games I played. But starting to play games in Japanese, as well as the recent step up in the quality of English voice acting in many games, has caused voiced dialogue to...sort of grow on me. Lots. ^^; To the point where it now feels almost weird to me when it's not there. I guess I've gotten a little spoiled...
It looks like the port is being handled by Falcom themselves, too? Wasn't their work on Gurumin and the Sora no Kiseki games meant to be quite good? After playing Konami's (I think?) PSP port of Napishtim, that's...kind of reassuring.
I'm actually getting happy-excited about this even though I wouldn't be able to understand a thing of it! XD I'll most definitely get this one though! (Unless if some confirmation of an English release comes out! Now THAT would be extra amazing! I would be able to play it before a decade passes by or something.)
PSP games are so much more hassle-free as compared to PC ones! :'D
Very very cool news...i can't wait to see Zwei!! non my PSP. Is there the release date specified? ;)
Seems to be listed as being "sometime in 2008". The text is sort of hard to see and it's blurry toward the crease.
wyrdwad: Say, you do translation for a gaming company, don't you? Can't you exercise some sort of ... Falcomy mind power on the higher ups to bring this over? Or nudge Mastiff a few times (as they seemed happy with your pimpage of Gurumin)?
Everyone needs to experience the cuteness and funness of ZWEI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Heh, I liked the typo they made on the official website. It's fixed now, but where it currently says 'PSP『Zwei!!』公式サイトオープン[09.26]' it originally said PSP『Zwei!!2』公式サイトオープン[09.26]. I thought for a second they were announcing a Zwei 2 port already.
Dream Labrynth lulz. THAT LEVEL 20 IS MISLEADING as, with each increasing level (re: going deeper), enemies increase in power and defense, INCLUDING the bosses. >:O The 4th level *enemies* always killed me. ALWAYS. homepage1.nifty.com/sugimo/falcom/other/zw_gdm14.htm
Er, I should mention that I was maxed out in levels when I did those dungeons. :P

Yeah that's the walkthrough I was using. Doesn't say much about defeating the Earth Dragon. I could only decrease a third of his life before he annihilated me. And using the combo specials did nothing since he always heal after each. So how the hell do I kill him?? Unless you're telling me to defeat him by attrition... god knows I need deft fingers to keep myself alive for a whole 15 mins...
Japanese PC Gaming DIED since 2010. So after travelling for years in gameless limbo, I'm now rocking a PS VITA (JAP).

I wish I could help but it's been way too long since I've played the game. However, I am certain I beat all the optional bosses and enemies except for the 4th level bosses (and in some cases, 3rd level ^^) from those labrynths of insanity.
Oh, gotta add this: If I can do it then so can you!!! For certain!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Cuz I suck at action games!)
