Downloading Hollow on my Vita right now. I can't wait to go through the game again with full-voice.
I heard the mini games are voiced too, if so that's even better.

I wonder how long it'll take to rip the voices and throw them into the PC version.

Is it just new voices, or does it add sfx/music and remove ero scenes as well?

Original didn't have voice in the first place. I did notice they added some sfx as well. Honestly I have a easier time going through the story because sometimes I'll get lost in who's speaking a certain line in the original. I have yet to get to the adult scenes yet so I don't know what they have replaced it with.

I was watching a compilation of all the Fate series openings and I didn't realize the Vita version of Realta Nua had new ones.
I really love the Heaven's Feel opening, but wow they sure do spoil everything. I guess that's why there wasn't a new opening for Heaven's Feel in the original VN.

I'm pretty sure the actual reason is that Type Moon ran out of money and had to release F/SN sooner then planned. Which is why Heaven's Feel has no anime opening, and a lot less CGs then the other two routes.

Just a guess from how HF has the most new cgs in the Realta Nua version.

Yeah the Vita openings are really cool. I think the neat thing about the songs are how each of the lyrics change slightly to reflect the theme of each route although obviously Heaven's Feel is the one that changes the most.

I played the weird patch with the hacked-in Realta Nua stuff, so I didn't realize until watching Nine Bullet Revolver on Niconico Douga that the CGs where Shirou projects Berserker's sword were apparently not in the original? Those CGs totally made that scene.

Yeah, I had a hard time telling the first two apart, but the lyrics changes are neat. Sad anime songs are my jam, though, so the Heaven's Feel opening is definitely my favorite of them. That said, I tried watching the UBW anime opening with the Realta Nua song and they sync very well.

Speaking of Sakura, though:

They do a lot more with sprite effects and such in HA. Just the prologue has a lot more movement then a lot of the actions scenes in FSN.

HA does a great job of underlining how Sakura is the most boring character, she sucks the life out of almost any scene she's in. Sometimes other characters, Caster or Taiga for example, salvage and/or carry it for her though.

Sakura is the Boss Monkey of the house since Saber and Rider immediately stop arguing over the merits of octopus as a meal when she intervenes while Shirou just wants to get the drat meal done.

To the man who loves art for its own sake, it is frequently in its least important and lowliest manifestations that the keenest pleasure is to be derived.

I feel like HA does a great job of underlining how Sakura is the most divisive character, the entire community can only take opposing extreme opinions out of any scene she's in.

Really though I'm one of those guys who actually likes Sakura in the VN, and I absolutely love how she's handled in HA. Mostly because HA has many moments where it drops the pretense that Sakura is in any way sane and perfectly acknowledges how terrifying and possessive she is.

Pretty much. Although to make it even weirder, in Oblivion Recorder, young Azaka has pigtails that make her look exactly like young Rin.

The openings were cool, but honestly the originals were better. Not animation wise of course, but just as far as fitting into the story went.

Also not going to lie, I miss the two OPs being called hollow and ataraxia respectively. That was cute.

Who cares about the openings, you should read F/HA just because Bazett and Avenger are both fantastic.

I've got to agree with this.

The first Vita OP has Archer + cat at least, though!

Caren was super boring except for the post-game scene. She's also attached to the creepy non-skippable ero scene.
