The official website for the New RPG by tri-Ace and SEGA has been launched today
Sega and tri-ace. Might be interesting.
It already looks better than Star Ocean: The Last Hope.
I wonder if this is in any way tied in with the old "Eternal Arcadia" (Skies of Arcadia) game for Dreamcast. It kind of reminds me of it a little bit. Anyway, still looks like it will be an OK game. BTW, guys please quit hating on every Jrpg that doesn't get high praise and has a few bugs. The truth is, these games have had the same problems for years, but with all this technology, we are just now starting to see it clearly.
People forget that some of the end of the PS1 era were excellent and the early PS2 were crap and they improved over time. It is the same again they early ones are poor buy will improve.
Well it looks like tri-Ace (huge fan BTW) finally got out from under Square-Enix's boot. Maybe with a new publisher they'll return to their previous glory. I'm keeping a magnifying glass on this one.
STAR OCEAN 4 THE LAST FLOP IS ALREADY KILLED.
until i see the reviews...last hope was the last hope i had in JRPG...im tired of being disappointed...its sad when im still playing last gen rpgs
Until I see see some gameplay. So far its only real selling point is that its multiplatform.
After checking out the website I can say this looks promising in just art style and mature theme alone. The girl character doesn't look like an anime ho, and the lead character reminds me of Rubedo from Xenosaga which is a good thing. We already know from other screens that the game will be a third person action rpg, so it should be a fresh take on a JRPG. Winter 2009 till we know if it's a hit or a dud like the rest.
Awesome I never though I'd say this Im glad its Sega not SE this time. For PS3 fans lets just hope they don't pull a Last Remnant on us.
Fully agree with you. After the AWESOME Valkyrie C, I'm very glad SEGA is after this game. Lets hope the best without too much hype :D, Tri-Ace yet need to prove itself.
I hope there is a North American release
Really loving the look of this title, wish we got a trailer but I'm assuming we'll see one soon enough.
looking at the backgrounds of the World link and thinking, "man, that kinda looks like Midgar FFVII?" Just curious. Site shows a lot of promise. Like the music.
I think it has a parasite eve touch...looks promissing...
Doing business with SE, only SE published thier games WTF is going on in Japan ---edit--- Also it seems like SEGA is jumping into the JRPG scene heavy this generation
That they're doing a pretty damn good job with it too! SEGA!!!
my friend, Agreed
It has nothing to do with bugs or glitches, its to do with the fact the about 98% of J-RPGS released so far. Have nowhere near the level of story telling as games like Xenogears, Suikoden II or FFVIII had. The majority of the people eating this stuff up are either new to J-RPGS or veterans accepting a new low. I as well as some people on here an other sites will not lower our standards of what we have come to expect of the J-RPG genre. If my standards had grown unrealistic then I wouldn't be still playing those 3 games I mentioned above. I just expect equal or better quality then before just as people who love any other genre expects. Problems I see currently 1. Extremely generic story lines I could have thought up in ten minutes. 2. Although fine for some games its like every time you turn around there is another J-RPG coming out that looks like Dragon Quest. Its time to step it up an I'm not talking the unreal engine leave that for FPS games as intended. 3. This odd crying sound for innovation, yet no one knows what they would consider innovation. That cry can yield some pretty poor results an standing around on a flat ground in typically a circular battle field in real time isn't really all that great. Some of these same people are also like many others still playing PS1 J-RPGS. Innovating for the sake of innovating whatever you would consider that to be isn't necessarily the key. What is needed is the very thing that made us an still make us play those games. Where when we discussed those games an used words like epic an great we could actually say it an know it was true without a doubt.
Agree with you. If the storyline is mediocre then that RPG is worthless. You should try Valkyrie Chronicles and Folklore. And then you have portable consoles, perhaps you can find out something for you there.
Is it possible Tri Ace might redeem themselves since they did Infinite Undiscovery and Star Ocean 4 if this game is good there could possibly be a sqeual to it. And Tri Ace did not do Last Remnant that was done by someone else Square just slapped there name on it. But I am glad to see Segas name on this title so no more excuses on why there is no PS3 version like Square.
SE excuse is that there is NOT PS3 version because they went multplat this gen. *My head is gonna explode*
If this game turns out good, I'm gonna say Sega is the new squaresoft, after the greatness that is Valkyria Chronicles and all.
superior version on the PLAYSTATION 3
