    Well earlier last year Sony setup a third party relations team to help with ports, localizations, and what not. Perhaps this is the result. I know Borderlands 2 is their first gig at porting a title to the Vita that was highly requested.

    Well then this team deserves some major props. I can only hope that this sells well enough for them to continue with the idea of porting more Japanese games to the Vita out West.

    Hollow Fragment is getting an update in July that will add 30 hours of content. New areas, items, bosses, and increased level cap will be part of the update.

    No official word on if the update will hit the NA version eventually. As its just an update one would expect it to release here. Depending on how late in the summer it hits America the game may ship with the update on the cart, but the cart size restriction may make that unfeasible.

    Its very odd press release from NamcoBandai, Hollow Fragment is actually is split into 2 chapters, Infinity Movement and Hollow Fragment. So them trying to sell us on Infinity Movement HD version is odd as it technically was already apart of the game.

    Kind of strange, either way I'm really looking forward to it. Hoping to see a release date before the end of the month.

    I think the trend going forward to lower cost of bringing Japanese games over is to make them digital only. It sucks, but if that's what it takes to make sure m ore games come Stateside, then I will deal with it.
