VG247: Korean developer Softmax has told videogaming247 that the recently announced Xbox 360 exclusive RPG Magna Carta: Crimson Stigma will be published by Namco Bandai.
Awesome more epic games to enjoy on my 360 can't wait.
Hope its good! The first Manga Carta started with very good ideas but failed to keep me playing it! The Korean style characters where very strange! Lets hope this game surpasses and excels its predecessor!
very gay if you ask me. at first I thought that the protagonist was a girl and it turned out that it was a man. the art style is even gayer than FF. lol the sequel could be good but the first, mmmmmmm, it was a pretty crappy game. http://www.gamestats.com/ob... even the newer Wild Arms games were better.
found a publisher for this game. Can't wait to see how the game has been coming along.
They would of gotten Microsoft Game Studios if they couldn't find another so either way it still would of came out.
I was going to put that picture as my avatar, but when I went back to look for it... it wasn't there anymore. And the one on my blackberry is in the wrong format. Well... Good choice man!
Not better then MINE!! XD
and say it will be coming to the PS3 in 5............4...........3.... ........2............1!
what do you think magna carta is? FF or something? this is just a generic korean rpg... http://www.gamestats.com/ob... enjoy the sequel to a game you know heck about. =)
I loved Tales and ES.
Question: How many eastern RPGs does the 360 have compared to the PS3? Answer: A hellava lot more. But do they sell well? No
Another 360 exclusive RPG? Huge mistake. Don't these companies do market research?
Cause Valkyria Chronicles was such a huge success on the PS3 that SEGA had to re-release it...
i know jenzo that is so true the other day a sackboy in n4g was claiming how the playstation 3 had the best rpg and that the rpgs in the 360 were tanking. but eventhough the only decent rpg in the playstation 3 was valkyrie it only sold about 50,000. lol so i really do not understand this new excuse and/or argument of the sackboys that the rpg's are being wasted in the 360. it is, as most of their whining, mystifying.
my sister picked it up, she loves it, i dont like to play it because its a different genre to your general rpg. ITS PRETTY MUCH A TWIST ON SRPG, what SRPG DO 360 got?
what SRPG the x360 got... I lol'ed at the way you tried to put this question trying to act smart and all. Well to answer your question . What SRPG the Xbox360 got??? Operation Darkness.... been out for almost 2years now Zoids been out for almost 1year now.
What happened to Square's excellent Front Mission series? I used to play Front Mission 3 like a nut back in the Playstation days.
While you're throwing numbers around, how about WKC outselling both TLR AND IU's first days put together?
First Magna Carta sucked, this one will too because those developers can't catch up the true power of the Xbox 360.
Tears of blood is included on my list of "worst games ever played/bought" the battle system was retarted and booring, the artistic direction was well differend, Graphics where ok, gameplay was booring and bland and story took ages to start, this combined with worst voice acting in the history of gaming (I am not kidding) and with horrible travelling between cities... If the Upcomming sequel is anything like the original (except for graphics and art) the game wont be good. I really recommend focusing on upcoming star ocean 4 and Final fantasy instead of this..
The first game sucked and this one looks like it will suck just as bad. I'm actually surprised they are even making another game after how much of a flop the first one was. Putting this on a console that has a fanbase who don't really care about RPGs to begin with and it looks like this game will suck even more than the 1st one.
another RPG on the 360. it's great that the 360 is getting more RPG's this gen. keep up the great MS.
Isnt this like the game that ps3tards were celebrating a few months ago as the top secret exclusive ps3 game? ''Tears of Blood?? OMGZZZZZ MAYBE ITZ TEH NEW MAGNA CARTA RPG GAME FOR PS3, EXCLUSIVELY ONLY ON TEH CELLLZ!!!'' Yup, but now its just a mediocre 360 RPG franchise, right lepers? Namco is pretty much 360 1st party developer now with only crap like tekken goin on sonyplat as charity I guess.
Check the full list of 360 RPG's in the link below, it is stunning http://www.gamespot.com/pag... The number of RPG's and epic huge titles 360 gets is unbelivable, it is by miles the best next gen system for RPG's already, but in 2009 gets 10x bigger in that genre
Yeah, except nearly all these 360 games are flop... On the other hand, PS3 has less RPG but they're far better : - Valkyria Chronicles - Disgaea 3 - White Knight Chronicles - Folklore (most underrated game ever, maybe...) And with compatibility, you can even play all the FF, Persona 3/4 and tons of other awesome games.
The best console for rpgs was and will always be the PSX/PS1, unless they manage to top Xenogears, FF7-9, Vagrant Story, Valkyrie Profile, Grandia and I'm not even going to bother to list others since you wouldn't even know what I am talking about. What the 360 needs is a game from defunct Sacnoth/Nautilus which noow forms part of Mistwalker...MGS which made the great Shadow Hearts series.
fanboy with the pics of sackboy and others... How are you going to put Disgea3 when they almost scored the same in all the reviews? Both Tales and Disgea scored around 8 to 8.5. same thing for folklore. plus disgea did not sell..so did not folklore. that leaves only White knight story and we havent seen any reviews yet exect the one from famitsu that gave the game 29/40.
I'm surprised no one has imported WKC yet... That game really isn't good.... But I'll just leave that for you guys to find out when it releases in the states and EU.
Namco/Bandai have published the best RPGs this gen(with the exception of Valkyria Chronicles). That alone is promising.
IMO Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon > Tales of Vesperia
urgg why Bandai ? Even Ubisoft dont want the sequel of that awful game ..... And i know people will disagree , but the only good j-rpg platforms so far in 2008 was the ps2 and the portable ds/psp couple . The only noteworthy next gen j-rpgs have been so far Vesperia , Symphonia 2 , Valkyria chronicles and apparently White knight chronicle . I could count disgaea 3 too but it feels more like a ps2 game ported on ps3
In my opinion, Namco Bandai is currently doing a much better job of rpg development/publishing than Square-Enix. They may be doing fewer RPG's than S-E, but they are of a higher quality. Tales of Vesperia for example is a game that I personally believe single-handedly made the 360 a viable purchase in Japan, pushing console sales for MS more than other games out in JP. I don't know much about Magna Carta, but I do know that Namco Bandai has their head on straight and will not disappoint fans.
I dont see how Bandai's involvement here means anything ... it is just what it is , them publishing a game for money . They know that despite the first title's horrible quality , it attracted a bit of attention with it's design , and still sold decently in Asia However i agree that Bandai's own rpg input has been great lately , with obviously the tales games , but also on PS2 the .hack G.U games from cyberconnect2
can't wait how more feminine looking the male protagonist will be in this game for mor LOLs @Bengoshi-San don't expect too much as Namco Bandai will only published this game, not the ones who will make it(just like tri-ace make Star Ocean not SE). Quality depends on Softmax
Magna carta LoL
Now, some may not like them, especially some people that have nevber played them, for obvious reasons, but that won't make them any less for me, that is for sure Not only 360 has got hands down the best RPG's this generation for me, and some of the best ever created, but is the only system that has RPG's actually, given PS3 only gets Strategy RPG's so far As for White Knight, that game looks generic and like a MMO to me, would never even rent such a game, i do not buy so low quality for me titles, like i did not buy Spectral Force of Operation Darkness
Yeah with Last Remnants framerate drops aside....it's actually quite a good game.
Namco Bandai will get my money when they finally release Tales of Vesperia in Australia, that's the only Namco Bandai game I'm really interested in.
