Ar Tonelico 2, the most highly anticipated console RPG title of the year (in my own brain, at least) is now on sale! Its release was commemorated on October 21st by a premium event held in conjunction with the currently running Akihabara Enta Matsuri at which the creative talent behind the game rocked out, literally and figuratively, in praise of the title’s many obvious merits. Those wondering what all the fuss is about are advised to check out the demo movie available via the “special” tab on the game’s official website; the Wikipedia entry for the original game may also be of service. If you’d like to support HD with your purchase the game is currently available (Japanese version only) at Play Asia, as is the OST; shots of what you get if you are truly insane below:

Before anyone asks: none of this (other than the bags of shredded packing paper) is still in my possession, it was purchased for a friend and is now on an airplane somwhere over the Pacific. ;__;

I still don’t have a PS2 (or a TV for that matter) but I swear I will play this game at some point in my life…
