It's Sunday, and Gust always loves to publish new information on its games at midnight as the week ends in Japan, so it's not surprising that they sent another large batch of information and screenshots on the upcoming PS3 exclusive JRPG Ar Nosurge.
The backlash... i can sense it.
What backlash? Given that this is - currently - JP-only the loli and ero factor is just another example of "Oh those wacky Japanese!" But because the genera is so starved in the West that when/if it gets announced for localization that it'll only be applauded.
I meant the recent "butthurt" articles coming from Kotaku and the rest regarding females in dragons crown and the rest of the anime like jrpg. I play that kinda games coming from nisa and gust.
i remember the days where jRPGs were not about little girls in bikini...
You're like the bunch of idiots who think that jrpgs are dead cuz SE has been messing lately. One game does bikinis and all games are doing it.
Generally speaking, the only home console JRPGs that get localized these days are either Square-Enix trash, or otaku-pandering rubbish.
Grandia 1, Grandia 2, Suikoden, Suikoden 2, Legend of Dragoon, Wild Arms, Saga Frontier, Legend of Mana, Terranigma, Breath of Fire 1-4, Xenogears, Xenosaga, Illusion of Gaia, Lufia, Chrono Trigger... Never saw a good classic console rpg about girls in bikinis. Strange. But fuck me, right?
Er a few of those classic titles you mentioned had plenty fanservice actually . like Xenogears
But of course you guys will just pretend the game described here is ABOUT girls in bikinis not a game from a pretty good and long established serie , since the ps2 era ... It's an impossible battle to win anyway , once minds are made up anyway
Thing in that back in the day most games were doing nothing but girls in bikinis. Were more about dating or harem subplots than saving the world. But just like FF has become more about FX games like the Tales series and this are about young - too young in many cases - sexy girls.
To clarify things , not out to antagonise anyway . it's true that the serie traditionally features fanservice and sexual innuendo , but it's far from the sums of its parts and content .
But hey maybe you guys did try it and still feel that way , or maybe you didnt .. no harm done or hard feelings , i just dont see it the same way .
@Loveforgames I don't see the girls in Ar Nosurge have the body size like little girls. They all seem mature or in 17-18 years old teenager to me. And almost all JRPG titles you mention had fans service or girls with bikinis.
c'mon man, bikinis are always nice, I think all games should have them : p the game is lookin great!
Me too. How about less fanservice and more actual gameplay depth and graphical fidelity? Remember that? There's a reason why Journey and A Link Between Worlds will be remembered forever while this will be forgotten as JUST another jrpg. Not expecting a lot of these types of games to survive the next gen.
Nah it was the same with previous Ar Tonelico stuff ... it was just too niche for silly crusaders to notice and annoy people about it . it will just get the expected few crap reviews and comments riff with "generic animu story bla bla bla sexualized themes bla bla bla" .
The art is lovely as for those retards who complain about bikini's they r all f@ggots & fck them, is there really a man that doesn't like a little fan service in their game? there is so many other things that must concern u when a new JRPG announced like story/characters, battle system or even graphics & the first thing I read in comments is how this game is going to be about young girls in bikinis pfff... it's like those ppl play it already & saw it all :/
So nice to see technically a new Ar Tonelico game! This series is so underrated with some beautiful music to boot. This new game is looking fantastic!
Nice more from the Ar Tonelico series. I'm ready to play this now. Sony going to overload me on JRPG's LOL Nope never happen keep them coming guys.
Nice. I'm a fans of Ar Tonelico and i'm glad Gust/KT still continue this series. For people who don't like the series, like people up there who complaining about girl in bikini's, you free to skip this game. No one force you to play it.
