Andriasang: Plus, secret design documents show Inazuma Eleven 3DS.
I really hope this RPG gets released in the states
Me too. Looks like alot of fun.
graphics are ridiculous. il get alot of hate, but this impresses me way more then ANY graphics out there, including kz3, uncharted 2, etc. dont even care.
No, you're right. This is one of the best implementations of cel-shading I've ever seen. For the first few moments of watching this, I thought it was a pre-rendered CG cartoon. Then I realized they were really playing in-game! edit: I followed the link after watching the video. "A couple of other revelations from the show: Hino apparently said that he only sleeps 3 to 5 hours a day." Wow, that's some intense dedication to your craft! Also, I didn't even realize that they were going for the Studio Ghibli look, but watching the video really made me feel as though I was watching a Miyazaki film or something. Impressive tech!
Studio Ghibly "look"? I thought the studio was directly involved in the production of the game? Was the main reason I was interested in this to begin with--I love Studio Ghibli!
@Blaine yes Studio Ghibli had more involvement. There are also animated cutscenes throughout the game, and Ghibli produced those.
Sometimes I wonder why Developers go for the realistic graphics approach all the time. Journey is another game that I think is beautiful. More developers should us cell shading if they cannot get the visual fidelity that huge development houses with big budgets get. VC is another game that is fantastic to look at aswell. Nice post SansanovaS1987.
i'm pretty sure there will be plenty of people out there who will be stunned after realising that it is a game running in real-time. This and FF13VS will be the prettiest RPG released this gen.
I demand PS Move support! >:[
comes to life.
This MUST release here in the West.
You mean it's not confirmed for the US yet?? Dammit, I was planning on buying it
This game is deep though. There was an unboxing of the collectors edition on youtube and there is a huge book that goes with this game that will enhance the experience of consulting it for tips on spells etc... A lot of love went into the creation of this game.
This is by far the best usage of Cell shade tech. no other anime rendered game looks as good as this. not even the recent NS:UNS2 and i thought that was as good as it gets. this looks amazing!!!!
well knowing level 5, they will release it in the US. cant think of a game this gen they havent brought stateside
Heh, might be too soon to comment about this, but WKC2 and the DS version of Ni No Kuni both have yet to be announced for oversea releases.
yea, but WKC took a year to get released stateside. Im not saying itll come fast, i just think we will be getting it.
Seriously, WKC took WAY too long to get ported to North America. The wait completely killed my interest in the game. I hope they learn this time around and bring it over sooner.
I agree B-Real206, I've been watching Ghibli films fro over 15 years. Own almost all the them on DVD. This game looks amazing, especially for anime and RPG fans.
is that a new anime!?!?!
Am still somewhat unsold on this game, It looks fun and its an JRPG too. Is this even announced for a NA and EU release? I have my doubts
the ds version which is a different game scored a 38/30 from famitsu.............. its amazing, so will this
You mean 38/40 but yes this game is amazing.
Looks awesome. I hope they bring it over here to the US. I love a good JRPG.
move support and a release date, day 1 buy, ghibli FTW
my body and ps3 are ready for this delicious jrpg.
I hope the translation to america comes super-fast and clean. Looks like an authentic RPG i miss rpgs like those Level-5, nis america, atlus etc. all make authentic new era classic rpgs.
This may sound a bit fickle of me, but when/if this game comes to western territories I hope that it has Japanese audio. If the NA version of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood can have 4 seperate languages then JRPG's can find room for both English and Japanese audio. I'm suprised it isn't more standard.
Where you can fit multiple languages on one disc.
I was going to make the same comment Swiftfox. It would be nice if Japanese devs would understand that many people(if not most) would prefer an option for English subtitles w/ Japanese audio. Can't wait for this Ni no Kuni, it looks amazing.
I've said it before.. WOW that game looks amazing!
that game looks just like a ghibli film so smooth. i really hope this and the DS version get released in the west and i hope they keep the big magic book you get with the japanese version.
"Hino goes into the debug screen to take control of the camera in order to prove to everyone that it's a real time scene. " yeah ..it's THAT impressive . This NEED to be translated by someone .. i hope someone is on it.
that would be a great idea.
Oh wow, your right. This would look dumbfoundingly(new word) good on the NGP OLED screen.
Release in Ausland please.
Where's my Dark Cloud 3 Level-5?
I got Spirited Away-dejavu by looking at the gameplay..
Traditional JRPG's... My PS3 is starving for them.
don't we all? :) At least we have Atelier Totori, Ar Tonelico 3, TrinityZ, HyperDimensionNeptune, Disgaea4 and FF13-2 to keep us busy this year. Then hopefully Ninokuni,FF13VS and Tales of Xillia for 2012 :)
Gah, I still can't pre-order this at EB Games... Anyways, I hope there is some sort of pre=order bonus/collectors edition for this game.
I played this at TGS last year. Honestly one of my most anticipated PS3 games. You need to see it running in front of your eyes on a decent HD tv to truly see the amazing work that level 5 have done here. Youtube video's just do not do this game justice. Hoping this gets released in the west because importing Japanese PS3 games is expensive and troublesome these days.
