Thanks to the convenience of the Switch and its advantages over the 3DS and Vita, the recent release of Octopath Traveler may be the start of something great. | Venturebeat
This is the first ot three Square Enix "throwback" JRPGs to knock it out of the park. I am Setsuna was decent and Lost Sphear wasn't. Octopath Traveler is incredibly put together and hit all the right notes. I hope Square and Nintendo develop a good future because we really need that next Chrono Trigger.
Nintendo & Square haven’t collaborated on an RPG since 22 years ago and on a game in general since 7 years ago. Idk why you’d think Nintendo would have anything to do with any of Square Enix’s future titles.
What do you mean “collaborated”? The guy is just hoping Square and Nintendo have a good relationship to bring more titles like Octopath over, and hopefully one of them is a sequel to Chrono Trigger.
Collaborated as in develop a game together, which Necrum mentioned in the last sentence. Chrono Trigger already has an actual sequel and two spiritual sequels. Square Enix isn’t going to make a second actual sequel for Chrono Trigger.
They never said that they should collaborate on a game together at all though. They simply said that they hope that they develop a good future, nothing more. So don't know why you're asking them why do they think that Nintendo would have anything to do with any of Square Enix future titles when they never got close to saying that in the first place lol. Sounds like they're just saying that given the success that Project Octopath Traveler is having at the moment that the relationship is becoming better and that square enix will maybe give them more support or titles like said game.
I mean, sure they haven't collaborated, as in developed together, recently. However Nintendo has been involved in a few Square Enix RPG's in recent years due to the DS and 3DS's success and the flood of JRPG's that those consoles received. Children of Mana, Dragon Quest 9, Bravely Default, and Dragon Quest 8, possibly others I'm missing. PLus, of course, Octopath Traveler. It's worked in the past so I'd some it will continue in the future. Also, NecrumOddBoy literally never said the word collaborated and never implied that he meant that they co-develop a title.
So you are ditching Bravely Default and FF crystal chronicles? typical ignorance right here.
Nah they did that back with Bravely Default/Second which is spiritual successor to FF1-5 and 4 Heroes of Light.
I actually like Bravely and it's ilk more so than recent FF.
I wonder when the west will receive Dragon Quest XI on Switch. Probably 2020 at the earliest
Really depends on where it is in development. The translation work and everything is already done, so if they get it out in Japan next year then it's possible it could hit the US next year as well. Being Square Enix it'll probably be another 3 years before it's even out in Japan though, lol. I'm super excited for the game, but I'll probably just pick it up for PC unless we have concrete info on the Switch version before the September release on PS4/PC.
Don't matter, once the news came out the switch will have content the ps4 3wont have when it comes out i already cancel ps4 pre order
Well it is out on September 4th for PS4. I'm a fan of the series, so platform doesn't matter to me.
It already is.
PS4 is a JRPG beast.
After the success of this game, prepare for a flood of rpgs to hit the switch. Developers move for $ signs.
Please do, I'll have 5o buy it earlier than I originally planned.
I haven’t played many jrpgs, how accessible is this game?
There's a three hour demo available, I'd check that out if you're interested. As far as JRPGs go it's certainly pretty straightforwards and easy to understand. However, turn-based JRPG's just aren't for everyone.
I expect higher budget games than that (read: that doesn't mean AAA). Give me mid-tier.
Why wouldn't it be? 3DS got tons of JRPG support. It's pretty much where all the big JRPG's went. PSP and to some extent Vita, also got a lot of JRPG's. It's really the biggest reason I play handheld systems, because it's where the games I like most are.
I pray that some miracle brings a persona game our way on the switch. It's literally a match made in heaven.
