CoP is being billed as just that(spiritualy, of course), and from what I can tell about the game it screams Guardian Hereos. The screens look fantastic.
As some of you might now, and others, I am sure won't care. lol. I am looking into getting a handheld this fall/winter. I have been weighing the games libary, the price, the features, and the conectivity to a console counter part. A game like CoP is a tipping point game.
If CoP launched tomorrow on a console that I didn't own, I would buy it, just for this game. Thing is, it isn't on a console. When people talk about getting away from console ports on a handheld, games like this are what they mean. This is a reason to buy something I don't already own.
Needless to say, I am VERY excited about this game. This and Hereos of Ruin have leaned me towards 3DS. I really like the Madden 13 Vita bundle, Dungeon Alliance, PSO2, and the fact that I am a PS+ member about the Vita tho. Going to be a tough call lol. But I can get Madden on a console, I own Dungeon Alliance for PS3, and can play PSO2 on PC. Again it comes down to what can the handheld offer that I can't get anywhere else?
