The Folklore demo is up and the guys at ps3fanboy have already played it and here are their impressions.
A must-have for me.
THIS game looks damn phenominal! the power of the ps3! yeah!
is a sleeper...never thought much of it but after seeing the footage and gameplay - looks like its gonna be a winner that alot of ppl will properly pass up
ill be grabbing it...and i like how the sixis is used to capture souls!
Well if you can't read Japanese like me you'll be at a loss for the story. Which is kind of a good chunk of the demo. It looks good and has some colorful areas and so far I'm liking the battle system. Action RPG this is right here. What's neat is that every creature you suck out their souls with the yank back with the controller, then you can summon one of there moves. I got the most creatures while playing the girl and there is some sort of tier system with each mob. Most likely stronger moves and such just couldn't figure it out or wasn't high enough to use yet. The one boss fight was cool and it's a different mob for each character, just a hint but once you defeat it and you got to suck the soul remember to wait for it to turn red to yank at it.
All in all they need to translate this soon and get it to the states. I want to play some more and know what the story is about!
others forums is talkin about this game..lol..so i hope ps3 owners isnt sleepin on it..because this is one of the great game for us to enjoy..
Yes,just create a Japanese account.
The best looking PS3 game I've played so far....yes better than NG:S!:)
i'm more interested in this game now than i was before, and i was really interested in it before.
i thought it was a lot of fun, and has some surprising depth hidden in there (such as your souls leveling up as you collect more souls of the same type).
the game is gorgeous, controls well, and has a great visual style to it that is both new and familiar. it looks like something out of a painting.
i didn't understand the story at all either, but that's ok.
i'm actually hoping that the Japanese release has the option for English subtitles, like the Ninja Gaiden Sigma Japanese demo, because if so, i may just importing it along with Ninja Gaiden when they both release in Japan this month.
i'm eager to see how this game will look on an HDTV. it's already gorgeous on a SD set (my paycheck isn't getting here soon enough! i want my HDTV, dammit!)
game sounds really good
The demo's great!
another killer app for the ps3
i haven't gotten the demo yet but since i'm here in japan... i'll prolly just buy it. i already know that NGS has english subtitles in the Jap version so thats already my first purchase. My ship is Stationed here in yokousuka, and i've seen posters for NGS for ps3 all over the Daie Mall... so i'm gonna get it once we pull back into port.
man i'm excited i really cant wait for this game. folkLore is gonna be awesome... i cant wait... i'll try out the demo once i get back to port.. from what i've seen this game looks even better than NGS
did he say he can read Japanese. I'm jealous.
