Dengeki Online has scored a ton of in-game screenshots that should lift gamers' spirits across the continent. The screens feature intricately detailed dragons and characters, character creation, and certain battle mechanics.
This game will be a sleeper hit.
Look like A Darker Oblivion but its a must buy cause i loved Oblivion
Here's a quick video of it. http://www.ps3fanboy.com/20... The game actually looks pretty damn good.Combat could use some work,but it looks promising.The thing is..this game is completley under everyone's radar.There's little to no hype for it. People won't get the game expecting some "GOTY" but im sure they'll be surprised by it.If it's anything like Kings field im buying it day 1.
Great atmosphere, art style and music. It's overall medieval style seems to harken back to some of the classic adventure games of old. Definitely will pick this game up immediately upon it's release, assuming it's released in NA.
Looks great. Anyone know when it is coming out?
Febuary 5th in Japan.It's supposed to have full english subtitles to so i may just import this.
Only known release date is for Asian regions on Feb 5. There is some kind of English option with the Chinese version which can be preordered on play-asia.com for $65, not including shipping. Not sure if it means the whole game can be in English or will they have only subtitles or have English voices but will the game menus not be in English. Would be wise to wait and read a post or review verifying what's what.
I LOVED that trailer that was recently released on the Japanese PS Store. A game in the spirit of King's Field is just too good for me to pass up. Hell, even the music sounds like King's Field. Count me in for the day one release, cause I'll be there.
looking good so far....haven't really been paying much attention to this game but it is shaping up real nice....
Game looks like it could be good but its still made by From software and all their games that i have played have sucked so i am not really holding my breath. It should do well in japan though
Feb. 5th is the release? Holy Hell I thought this was like a late '09 release! Shouldn't take TOO long to get to NA if it's coming... Wooooo!
This game is going to be sh1t just like Ninja Blade. Just look at trailers from Armored Core games. They look awesome but in realty the games are crap(well, in a general aspect because I love the Armored Core franchise).
Your opinion is sh!t.
So sh1t that it affected you in some manner to come and insult it. Pathetic isn't? (quite ironic too) Opinions are as subjective as the number of humans living on the planet. BTW your nickname is sh1t. It sounds like the name of a pedophile or something.
What is with all this "mark my word," I doubt anyone is going to remember it one way or the other when the game ships. I think I wanna see more, like some mature hands-on and previews, before deciding whether this goes into my wish list.
I still have reservations about this game but its starting to look pretty good
game loooks really hot!
Then why don't you marry it!?
Looking at the screenshots, the game looks like what I expected WKC's gameplay to be like. It kind of reminds me of a third person King's Field. edit: oops same developer...yeah this game's gonna be great
The screens look ok but looks like there is still work to be done. Only other thing I notice is the lack of on-screen action. Mainly 1-on-1? however, this comes back to why I asked what type of game it is.
That's an interesting observation. Now I see what you're saying. There's never more than 1 enemy at a time in any of these screens. Hmmm... I'd like to see some more gameplay video. Looks pretty cool though.
There's actually a screen with about 7 or more enemies on a bridge. I can't read Japanese, but I think most of this is an explanation of the game's features; combat, inventory, story, allies, heroes, bosses, death and respawn, co-op (?!) etc. Having a battalion of enemies on screen at once isn't exactly favorable when trying to show off your melee, magic, block and evasion, as well as the enemy's reactions. I'm sure there will be scenarios with a lot of enemies to battle though, the whole city-under-siege (?) story makes it more probable than not.
This is a game similar to Oblivion. Don't expect to just hack'n'slash your way through hordes of enemies. There's also a focus on HUGE bosses (bigger than anything in those screens).
Is it like Oblivion?
If I were to make a comparison from games I have played (no King's field), I'd say it looks a bit like Diablo (inventory, environment and enemies) + Oblivion (scale, middle-age fantasy setting) + a little Shadow of the Colossus with those huge creatures ravaging the city. All combined and with original features of its own, it will probably be quite unique.
Oblivion was fantastic and shadow of the colossus was one of the best games ever
is this a turn based RPG??
No, it is not turn based. Think along the lines of Diablo + Oblivion combat.
you're Wii fanboy what does your dumba$$ know about Demon's Soul's or Ninja Blade. You talk about sh!t, looks at your own 480p sh!t games.
Probably the same as you. Nothing... I'm just talking utilizing the reference from their past work. They aren't good developers. From the "huge!" amount of games that they have done if 3 or 4 are good that's a miracle. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... -People disagree with me because they don't like the true or maybe because they simply disagree with me? You can disagree with me, everybody has their own opinion. Why the insults then? Maybe deep inside of you, you know that what I'm saying is true(?) or maybe is that you just like being a vulgar person... I hate the Wii to such extend that I put it on my nickname just for the ultimate irony. The only console I like from this gen is the PS3. But when I think something is crap or going to be crap I just say it. Isn't this the purpose of the comment section in the articles? edit: = Ok, I have another disagree but with what are you disagreeing with? I'm just stating the obvious for you guys. I mean, didn't you know that everybody has their own opinion? I already said that I like Armored Core but the good and bad games from FromSofware are based on reviews not my opinion. Nothing make sense here.
I wish JP developers would go back to making traditional JRPGs instead of these WoW/Oblivion knock offs.
King's field was made in 1994, even though it was made after TES: Arena I bet my sweet ass they took a lot of inspiration from King's Field when they made Daggerfall.
All I want is a traditional JRPG but with next gen graphics and I'd be set. Now leave me alone lol.
They've apparently been making games like this for quite some time with their King's Field franchise, so I wouldn't call it a knock-off. But really, games have genres because they have similar traits to others, so all this "doesn't do anything new" fuss is ridiculous, imo. And while really original games like Flower are very appreciated in the gaming press, it doesn't necessarily appeal to the gamers as much. I really doubt original and unusual games like Flower will sell as well as tried-and-proved traditional shooters like Call of Duty. EDIT: @7.2 White Knight Chronicles should be your fix. Hopefully it won't be long until it arrives on our western shores.
and I'll probably buy it, but the gameplay is a bit of a turn off. Little too much like WoW/FFXII which I don't care for but if the story is cool, interesting characters and all that then I'll be happy.
"All I want is a traditional JRPG but with next gen graphics and I'd be set." I fullheartedly agree with you on that point. :)
Turn based JRPGs with next-gen graphics: -Lost Odyssey - 360 -Eternal Sonata - 360 PS3 -Blue Dragon - 360 -The Last Remnant -360 -Enchanted Arms - 360 PS3 Whether those are good or not, I leave up to you, but they have next-gen graphics and are turn-based. Granted only Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon have the true "old-school" combat system. If those don't do it for you, I'm afraid you're out of luck because games like those seem to be a dying breed. Most games of that style are remakes of old games for DS and PSP. Keep hoping for a next-gen FFVII remake, because I think that's all you might get.
It's a spiritual successor to King's Field. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Still undecided on this one. I hope it's good.
Looking ok, would like to know a lot more about this title. @Patterson I agree some more traditional/retro JRPG's would be nice.
Lots of people talk about an updated FFVII or Legend of Dragoon, etc. yet developers aren't making them. I believe what people are really saying is, "Just make a traditional JRPG but with the updated next gen graphics!". Doesn't have to be re-makes. Just give us ANYTHING ;_; (lol). I don't know, maybe developers have focus group information I'm not aware of but I think there's still a big enough market for it. Not FPS big but still significant.
hmm I am still not sure about this game. So far I am not very impressed but it could surprise me. I just need to see more gameplay videos.
You guys WANT JRPG's??? I really want to play this game. Don't ask for JRPG's though. Turn-based was a system I would like to forget. It takes you away from the game. It's not real. It feels like your playing a video game and not an alternate reality. It's not fun.
I'd completely disagree , people could actually argue that real time jrpg are or became stupid beat-them-alls with the AI doing half the work(and often a bad job to boot) and you spending your time building up combos . Personally i like both style , i just dont see why one should obliterate the other , instead of having variety . Just like i dont see why every fricking pc rpg now is a damn fps , even if good . The only thing that turn based jrpg needs to do away with , is those random battles . I prefer to see the foes , even if they are unavoidable .
Agreed Baka-akaB, I prefer the turn based system. Everybody and their dog complains about turn based fighting. It gives you more time to consider your options and is a lot more strategic. I guess us older gamers (I'm 30 in a week) just have a longer attention span than the teenagers of today. Hell I was 17 when I started playing JRPGs and grew up on turn based fighting. I like free range action style RPGs as well don't get me wrong. I LOVED the King's Field series as well as Oblivion, but I won't pass up a good turn based RPG. Hell, Final Fantasy Tactics was one of the best turn-based strategy games ever made and I'm still loving it on my PSP, especially since I can bring it with me everywhere I go. :D
I really like some of the weaponry designs (swords/shields). However, the environments lack creativity. I still might import, but it's most likely going to come over here and possibly at a discount price
the graphic suck
The one thing that actually pretty much even haters or undecided people find good about the game sucks ? Yeah right ...better check those eyes
You guys are the biggest hypocrites ever.
Cares to give more details and facts about ur comment o.O
Whats this "You guys" bull sh*t?
I better check this one out. Is there going to be english version coming soon?
asian (not jap asian) version february 5th with english in option
The only link between it and armored core is the From software origin . It's a Sony game with From software staffers .. and basically a more mainstream version of King's Field . King's field games are generally recognized as good or decent (like wizardy) , but just for a particularly hardcore niche . Hell you like like their worst franchise so far : Armored core a poor man's Mechwarrior , constantly struggling between assuming the Mechwarrior way , and trying to look appealing to gundam fans (and i dont mean because of the look , but crappy attempts such as the next gen core games so far) , among king's field , otogi , tenchu and a few older and newer stuff . it hardly make you imo a worthy judge , if there were any here ..
quantom thery+demon soul+ ninja blade=FLOP OF 2009
There not release date for the US yet right guys?
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boa... Scroll down a bit. There's some stuff translated by a poster. The multiplayer sounds incredible.
This is sort of looking like the 3D Castlevania title for the PS2, especially Curse of Darkness, in the combat at least. It also looks like Two Worlds which came out a couple years ago. I certainly hope it's better than that game, because it was a huge disappointment. So is it free-roaming ala Two Worlds, or more like Curse of Darkness with separated environments?
From what i've seen its a bit of both ... though mind you you could have picked a better exemple of free roaming than two worlds lol . It's not an open world like an oblivion or two worlds with huge lands , but you are frely exploring the vicinity of the castle , and most of all it's interieur .. like a castlevania , or well any usual dungeon rpg
