Namco Bandai published a new trailer from Magna Carta 2.
Wish they showed some gameplay.
Never played first one but the screens from magazine and trailer looked good.
I like to fight so that is just as important to me as the story telling in this genre. I need to know if I will have fun. Battle comes first drama 2nd. I'm just a bot with a Ghost after all.
Oh thats what this trailer was missing.... A few things: At first it looked like a PS2 game, not much of a budget for the animations. Then it started looking a little better The voice acting sounded Ok (for what it is/compared to older jrpgs) Another jrpg for the 360 really makes me think i should just get one already. I don't even care if it's crappy i just like the genre and pretty cut-scenes (seriously) and the PS3 is lacking BIG TIME. Don't mention Valk, i like casting spells and summoning sh!t The end of the trailer say "Xbox 360" but it doesn't say "only on" so that's good, for them and me as 360 owners aren't really big on jrpgs (as we've seen so far) I don't care how crappy people claim Lost OD, Inf Und., and Star Ocean 4 to be I know i would like them. Lost Planet 2 is more of a push even though i thought the first one looked like crap (fun-wise). I'd be the first 360 owner to have no interest in Gears, mass effect or Halo if i did buy one LOL. But I hate that damn controller and i hate learning a new controller.
^^^What a pointless ramble that was.
Can't say I'm excited for this. For some reason it reminds me of The Last Remnant. It will be a nice sales boost for the 360 in Japan.
Considering that it has yet to show if it brings nothing new to the genera.
is this only for X360?
yup. only 360 version mentioned.
At least until some gameplay is shown. Anyone sane who's have played much less seen footage of Lost Odyssey or SO4 have to be able to see how sub-par the cutscene animation is.
I don't know I like the cut scene animations and graphical style. story seems like it will be pretty typical though, which is too bad. I wish Japanese developers would start making more developed stories for their RPGs rather than the same old love story. BTW I don't think it has anything to do with fanboy mentality. I don't own a 360 and the graphical style is very nice. you're right that its not the most technically brilliant looking game but so what.
i never played the first one but i will wait till i see gameplay b4 i hype it or break it.
Me neither but I heard the first one wasn't too good.
If it's ANYTHING like the first one, it's going to be garbage. The first one was one of the worst RPGs I've played on the PS2, up there with Unlimited Saga
Is this really a sequel? The art looks so much different from the first game... At least males look like males and females don't have insanely big boobies. The only way to differentiate males from females in the first game was by looking at the boobies. The first game had a great battle system but the music was mega crap, the story was the definition of boring, the voice acting was as bad as they could make it. I would describe the game as a real piece of crap. But the sequel looks a little bit more interesting. Not a copy paste of FFVIII.
Look Ma! Another 360 'exclusive' RPG that will hit the PS3 a year later with more content! Wipppy!!!
funny you say "another", as of right now the only jrpg getting a ps3 release is tales of vesperia. i think your just bitter to the fact that we have all these jrpg's to play, why else would you have commented here? @GWAVE yea i seen that after i posted, ES was ported over. the fact remains i see a lot of petty bickering back and forth about who gets what, personally i don't care, and wish you guys did get tales when the 360 version came out because its a very good jrpg.
@ maxcer Eternal Sonata ringing any bells? Actually, if you look at the list of JRPGs on the 360, it's pretty slim. It only looks big in comparison to the Wii and PS3, but the DS and PSP have it owned.
I was really excited and happy to find out that Magna Carta II was getting a US release but now I don't know after finding out the game is using the Unreal Engine 3. That engine has just about ruined any game that used it because of horrible frame rate glitches and collision detection issues. Hopefully the team will be able to work around these issues and make a great game regardless but i guess time will tell.
