It was NOT confirmed if FMA2 will be a strict manga adaptation, although very likely it will be. I think an official announcement will be made later in Winter.
So if there isn't one out there could someone please make a FULL translated list of all the game's items, accessories and how/where one can obtain these items?
I doubt anyone has completed the item list. And most of the items you'd actually need to use are the potions anyway. Everything else are just for looks and unlocking certain scenes with Sofie, and most of them disappear/gets turned into different items, so although I might have 85% items completed, I don't actually have all of them listed in my items inventory. Now that I have a job, I won't wasted 10+ hours to translate something solely for one person =P When you import something that's not of your language, you should expect to play it and not understand everything.
The best way is to just look at every single corner of each stage of the game, get all the items you can, and just give them to Sofie. It will show if you have got any new items to show her anyway. (the old items get blacken out)
One legitimate reason y the U.S hasn't seen a FMA3 could be primarly that Al can "clap alchemy" which is sumthing that has only been shown in the manga
But then English manga has already been released up to Vol 15. I don't think that's a legitimate reason anymore. I heard that they didn't bring over the FMA3 game because FMA1 and FMA2 didn't sell very well. Another reason is probably because FMA3 has a lot more features than FMA1 and FMA2, so they probably found it a hassle to translate everything (especially if it won't sell, then they can't regain the cost) =P Or perhaps, if they license this game, then they'd have to buy the license of Kitade Nana's Kanashimi no Kizu from Sony, and that's too much work/money.
I look forward to a FMA4 Playstation game, though =D They better release new Playstation/NDS games with the animation of FMA2!
