During the latest Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo and Square Enix introduced a brand new trailer of the upcoming JRPG Project Octopath Traveler.
My jaw dropped watching that... it's one of the most visually striking games I've ever seen.
I wouldn't go that far, but the art style is nice. This and Xenoblade are my 2 most wanted switch games.
It's really original and gorgeous imo. A perfect blend of SNES and UE4 graphics. It's striking and gorgeous not like super demanding high end graphics obviously...
suprised you didn't include mario
@thegamefox93 I will definitely buy Mario, but for some reason I rarely anticipate its release. Zelda and Xenoblade were the reasons I purchased Switch day 1.Most likely I will use the system for RPG's more than anything else.
'from the developer of Bravely Default' 'nuff said, day 1 buy for me
I also do think that the graphic look great. It is like a 3D SNES rpg. I can't wait for this.
don't mind the downvotes, those are from "ultra hard 4k realistic graphics games with guns pew pew shooterz are the best fans" If you don't appreciate this type of graphics there is a perfect game for you it's called "real life" just go buy a gun and it'll be a shooter game.
I completely agree, when I saw this trailer my jaw hit the floor, holy crap this is one beautiful game. Don't mind the haters, they are just salty
It is also one of the most visually striking games I've ever seen. Ever since Square teased it a while back, it has been the sole reason I will be buying a Switch. It reminds me of Tactics, FFVI, etc. I wish more games were this beautiful.
This game looked sweet
HD-2D. That's pretty cool; a blend of old and new, and the 8 protags having their own unique skill to make the story play out differently is also pretty neat. I'll definitely be getting this one. Switch's RPG game is getting pretty damned strong.
apparently you can play through the 8 regions in any order you want, it made me remember the first dragon age which is a great thing definitely getting this one
That's good news, and did you hear that MUSIC? Man, the team behind Bravely consistently NAILS great music tracks. I don't know how they do it, but if they ever made a compilation disk of all the music from all the games they've helped Squeenix make, I'd buy that in a heart-beat.
@wonderfulmonkeyman. Download the demo and listen to the music !!! I had to leave the title screen on for 5 mins..... This game is looking awesome. Come to think of it, so do many other Switch exclusives.
looked sweet, I personally wouldn't go for it but it definitely is a nice game to have available for the system. Only gripe is everything looked just way to dark
Nice will definitely try it out
This is gonna be a must have for the Switch. This is why I got one. I am so hyped.
Here here!!! *plays demo*
This is the only reason so far that I will be buying a Switch.
I have plenty of reasons myself.
this and xenoblade really make a case for a switch since i'm a rpg and jrpg fan
This looks INCREDIBLE.
dunno why, but watching nintendo direct always makes me excited. It's like they're focusing on having fun, the most important part of playing games is having fun and they're capitalizing on that in their conference instead of participating on 'who has the bigger d*ck competition' and shoving the tagline 'best place to play' every 5 minutes in your face and having fake presenter with fake excited face unconvincingly telling you that what you just saw is the greatest thing ever. just, show me what you have and let me decide if it's exciting or not man, the damn commentary is longer than the old trailer you just show itself (you guys know what conference that is lol)
On top of that lately the directs have gotten a lot more focused. They no longer linger on games longer than they need to and they barely mention system updates, phone games, etc . . . The directs lately have been entirely about games and they've delivered in spades. Nintendo is back and they're throwing some heavy punches.
This is what you use for a Final Fantasy 6 Remake. I knew this wouldn't disappoint. The way the background scales, reminds me of3D Dot Heroes.
That because it's the same developer. Silicon Studio. They also made Bravely Default/Second and Final Fantasy 4 Heroes of Light.
Yup! I know they did Bravely.
I'll have to keep my eye on this one. I was a little skeptical at first, but as the trailer progressed, I got more and more on board. Looks pretty interesting!
i need this, download the demo right now, but still need this
The demo for this was really good! Day one. Can't wait. Been waiting for a quality RPG for my Switch.
Played Primrose's 1st chapter. I'm hooked. This game is day 1 for me. Love the SNES look with a touch of 3D for good measure.
Played the demo and it's beautiful
holy crap.. a demo?!?! Yes please!!
Looks incredible. One of the best art directions I have seen in my 23 years of gaming. Visually stunning! This is will be why I buy a Switch.
