Bioware: "We would love to revisit Jade Empire"

In an interview with Strategy Informer, Lead Designer of Dragon Age: Origins, Mike Laidlaw, said that Jade Empires is a favourite among the staff of Bioware and that the firm would love to revisit the franchise.

"we will certainly announce it if it's going to be coming out. At this point, Jade Empire is a staff favourite and a lot of us love it, so we'd love to revisit it at some point. But right now, we are very focused on Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2." said Laidlaw.

What and awesome game the first was lets hope they do bring this 2nd one out...

I'll just put this out there:

Jade Empire was their best RPG on the Xbox. Yeah, KotOR 1 and 2 were cool, but Jade Empire was a completely new universe with a great story and several awesome plot twists.

KOTOR 2 was done by obsidian...

I liked JE, but didn't get into it much. I think it was because it felt too much like JE: KOTOR. And I actually felt that Obsidian were more progressive with KOTOR 2 than Bioware with JE. Although nothing beat getting the *ahem* menage romance plot. Did not expect that my first time through.

Sure, I'd play another JE.

... and I also like adventure RPG's and such, but somehow I just never really got into Jade Empire.

The fighting was boring to me, and the voice-acting I felt was mediocre at best.

It wasn't a bad game by any means. It just wasn't anything special either. And I felt it was all a bit too lineair.

(I DID like KOTOR btw, despite not being a sci-fi/star wars fan)

I loved Jade Empire. There were so many different ways to play it I probably played it 10 times. To this day my two all time favorite videogame character names are still "Sir Roderick Ponce Von Fontlebottom the Magnificent Bastard" and "Egregious Provaricator, respected scholar and grower of pipe weed". I don't know why it's so frequently skipped over when people list Bioware's great games.

They could just improve the graphics and release it to nextgen consoles/pc and i would easiley buy it.

Kal8532756d ago

I totally agree with you. The weirdest part is that I actually think the graphics from Jade Empire are better, or at least more aesthetically pleasing, than what I've seen from Dragon Age. But I'm still gonna buy it.

Remake for the XBLA? hehe.

The game is already on Games on Demand and holds up pretty nicely even today.
