Hardcore Gamer: Ambitious and multinational, French developers Kobojo will be teaming up with Final Fantasy greats Hitoshi Sakimoto and Kazushige Nojima for an upcoming online 2D RPG Zodiac.
Wow, another awesome RPG. TGS is killing it this year.
Another iOS title which suggest that a=maybe console makers took things too far with the focus on "real world" graphics.
Just because it's iOS doesn't make it bad.
Vita dude vita
IOS :O AHHHHHHHHHH shit I was like "Holy shit ex FF developers...RPG" then BAM...IOS Jesus Christ. You'd think with the PS4 selling so well Sony would have at least one first party Japanese developer making an RPG game. Why don't they just ask Mistwalker if they don't have any first party studios to do one. EDIT Oh the Vita aswell....still though console releases would be nice
looks like a Vanillaware game, love those, it's turn based so shouldn't need physical controls so I don't mind it on iPhone,the good news is that it's already in English.
@ValKilmer: Didn't say it was bad, really at this point iOS is comparable to 16 or 32 bit era games, but rather I was complaining about PS3/PS4/360/XB1 having to be 3D/AAA productions with real time mechanics and realistic graphics. No one seems to realize what that's done to the industry. iOS is not middleware for consoles.
Damnit. Why do these people refuse to put stuff like this on consoles, where they don't have to use an art style that looks like it was made using Flash?
But the art and animation looks friggin' awesome!
these developers are small teams with less than 10 people most of the time . plenty of big AAA JRPGs announced at TGS, Persona5, Y's, FFT0(worth the wait), FFXV, Dragon Quest Heroes, so don't worry
The art is beautifull??
Mock the graphics when you're going to play Bravery Default with that Final Fantasy 3 graphics engine from the DS, haha.
And yet you praise Bravely Default with its PS1 graphics
To both TongkatAli and Revengeance: No, I mock those graphics too. I did SETTLE for it though.
I have nothing against mobile gaming, but, c'mon!
FFFF!! I WANT THIS NOW!!!
Loving the look, but I'd never play this on my iPhone. PC release or bust!
before people complain about it being mobile. just check out the video. it looks decent and doesnt look like one of those money grubbing f2p. graphics / animations remind me of dragons crown for some reason. hope this game is good.
Yeah I was thinking Dragon's Crown, or even Child of Light, with the art style. It looks gorgeous. It's not because of micro-transactions etc. that I don't want to play on my iPhone. I crave physical controls on a device I can kick back and relax with. For me, that doesn't happen on my phone. iPad would probably be okay, though I would still prefer a Windows version!
ipad gamins pretty cool. but its on vita aswell. but i guess if you dont have vita then this wouldnt really be news to you at all.
Well you're in luck, since it'll be on a great dedicated gaming device with physical controls: PS Vita.
Yes, the Vita is a great, yet greatly under-supported, device. I don't have one. :/
Looks Great, I'll buy it on vita
Music from the guy who composed FF Tatics and Vagrant Story. Amazing art style, on the Vita, I'm so fing buying this.
- Graphic with 2D style ala Dragon's Crown? check - Epic music by Hitoshi Sakimoto (Vagrant Story, Tactics Ogre, FF 12, Valkyria Chronicles, Odin Sphere, Dragon's Crown)? check - Scenario by Kazushige Nojima (FF 7-8-10-15, KH)? check - Turn based RPG? check - Single player offline? check - Will it be localize? hopefully, because the trailer showed english dialogue Okay i'm sold and my vita will welcome this game in a heartbeat ^^
This game is just perpetuating the problem. "Turn-based? Better dial the production value down to 0 so it doesn't sell well and we can keep using that as an excuse to dial the production value down to 0."
