If you love planet hopping in your spare time

If you love or may be interested in Werezompires
If you love deep combat that is truly unique
If you love 16-bit OMFG soundtracks (can’t overstate my love of the soundtrack)
If you love a large diverse cast of characters each with unique abilities
If you want an RPG that takes 12-25 hours instead of 100+ but is all action NO FILLER

If you want to support further rpgs from Zeboyd games
If you have a pulse, ~$15, and want rpg portable goodness

PLEASE BUY COSMIC STAR HEROINE!!!!!!

This is a phenomenal game.

Battle system is easily one of the best I’ve seen in a long time, and that includes AAA releases. Story and setting are very neat as well.

I played a few hours on PS4, tried it a bit on Vita, and when I found a Switch version was coming decided to wait for that. Happy it’s here

Werezompire, is there any differences between the vita and switch version? Any noticeable differences in fps or new content or pretty much the same?

Seems like it's got more patch fixes and faster load times, and the alternate control options ala Switch defaults.

SinCityAssassin covered it. Some extra bug fixes, but the game performs at a solid 60 frames per second and has very short load times on Switch. We're proud of the Vita version (Still a great handheld to play this!), but some areas can get a bit less smooth frame-rate-wise, and have longer load times than the snappy/fast ones on Switch. There's the alt control option for Switch too but the content is all the same.

I also got this back when it came to the Vita and what a gem of a game it is. Will probably double-dip on this one. I do hope the developer makes some money porting this to switch as I seem to recall him posting that they barely broke even with the initial release due to a problem with reviews not being posted.

We actually had a not-ideal launch on PS4 and Steam because it came out with enough bugs that it sort of set the tone. It's a very solid game now, def worth checking out on any of the platforms, IMO. The lesson we learned was to ensure that the game is content complete several month before release so there's time to test, report, and fix, and polish. Would help to get more testers but even with a lot of awesome testers, there still needs time to find/fix/polish stuff before release.

Doing the game on PS4 and Vita was great though. Sony was incredible to work with and did a lot for us to help get it out there. I'm still extremely grateful for that.

Pre-ordered despite telling myself I can't start it until I finish Octopath. I feel like I've waited this long, what's another few weeks?

It was an incredible game despite any bugs. The only one I can recall had something to do with reading the text of NPC's and the like. Regardless, very glad it came out on Switch and would love to see a follow-up to this game one day.

Ok I have to come in here and say, regarding Cosmic Star Heroine’s soundtrack....HOLD ME JESUS!!

Couple things:

-When taking off on 2nd mission of the game. the music REALLY reminds me of Mass Effect 1 Galaxy Map. so.damn.incredible

-Boss battle music is its ummm I am speechless. Music in the 2nd mission overworld is orgasmic.

I swear you all dug into my subconscious, found every damn button i have for game music, and pressed all of them at once. Soundtrack is seriously almost a classic for me it’s just that phenomenal.

Otherwise, yep the game is still amazing. Character portraits and sone of the quips characters make remind me dearly of Lunar 1 and 2. Just classy/classic. It’s a retro rpg overload for my brain, this game.

It’s magical, and I’m sure you guys are proud of it and I know it nearly killed y’all but damn was it worth it.

P.S. I will stop freaking out soon, promise. Game is just that good for me. Warm comforting nostalgia with new awesome things mixed in (god tier battle system). I am not associated with Zeboyd at all I’m just going crazy from their game (again!!!)

PPPS: Performance handheld is 100% rock solid. Game is gorgeous on the Switch Screen, load times are super fast, movement is butter smooth. Great job!

Have played a little bit now. The music is incredible and really drives this game forward!

I preloaded this game and my switch still isn't letting me play it. I would like answers
Try to redownload it or check for patches manually with the + on the icon, to see if that might solve it.

Have there been any balance changes since the PC version? Some of the characters/setups where borderline broken in how good they were.

Keep us updated regarding sales. Game deserves sucess.
Since LRG announced this in the AMA, I feel it's safe to post here as well. Game sold about 1.5k in preorders on Switch. People usually don't preorder indie games so I'm taking that as a promising sign that the launch & beyond sales will be strong.

Hmm, was looking for a game after Hollow Knight and not sure I want another metroidvania just yet with Dead Cells or Guacamelee 2!. Also afraid to dip into the big Octopath Traveler game so this might be right up my alley.

Their current plan is early 2019 since they have a lot already scheduled for 2018, plus they want to make sure that the Switch version can get any patches it needs done before physical.

Honestly, announcing the physical version this far out was probably a mistake. People would’ve just bought digitally if they didn’t know physical was coming.

Limited Run Games did the port AND did physical releases for Vita & PS4 so it's not like we could have hidden it. And the fact that the physical release is so far out means that a lot of people won't want to wait and will just buy the digital version instead (or will buy digital & physical). I'm not worried.

how is the cast? looking for a nice ensemble story



OK i am interested
It’s a really fun cast of characters. The game is action packed and stakes always run high but party members keep things light and make lots of jokes it’s really fun and reminds me of the simpler days of the 90s where games didn’t take themselves as seriously. The cast is around a dozen some later ones don’t get a ton of characterization. (but still some), but the core cast from the beginning are well developed for the game they are in.

That may be true, but I'd rather just let people know so that anyone who only wants to buy this once for physical will know in advance. If they are eager enough to play it now instead of waiting, they are always welcome to get it digitally for a fair price.

Depending on when you played it on PC, there have been some balance changes/tweaks (especially with respect to what you could do with Dave towards the end). But if you found a really powerful setup it's still gonna be powerful.

Replaying to get caught up where I was on the ps4 version. Just got to chapter 3, currently on agent difficulty even though I recall bumping it up to hard on the ps4. Want to get a full party and full set of abilities before going back up to hard.

The thing I'm loving the most about the game is the sprites, I'm such a nostalgic person.. &_& I really miss amazing sprites and their animations, 3D won't ever replicate this feeling to me.
also, that 90s sci-fi and music is really great.
