Thanks mate. I definitely will play both!
NNK has a better story, with better characters (thanks to Studio Ghibli) but NNK2 has far superior combat. It should make no difference in which order you play them but I do recommend you play both (y) Heat for the deal - I'm tempted to rebuy, even though I've played this through already... (:I
Is the DLC worth it for this game?
Third one is announced already isn't it?
Play the first for sure. It's a far superior game, one of best JRPGs of all time and recently been remastered so it's a must play!
