GameDynamo - "BioWare seems to be prepping gamers for a reintroduction of the Jade Empire franchise with its release of Death's Hand Armor for the Dragon Age Legends closed beta..."
God, I hope so. I fucking loved that game and never understood all the hate. The lore, the characters, the martial arts fantasy and the world simply sucked me in and did not want to let me go. One of BioWare's finest and has heaps of potential to make it even better.
I completely agree. As underrated as Heavenly Sword and 27x better. Please let this be true.
... and bought this game on the first day it came out. Sadly, I felt it was a little bit too lineair for me, and by the time I got to the big city, I kinda lost interest and stopped playing. Such a shame, cause like I said, this should have been everything I would want in a game...
There is some truth to what Yi-Long is saying. I still have Jade Empire and KOTR right beside each other with DOA Ultimate and Sega GT/JSRF.
There was hate on this game?! How could anyone ever hate on Jade Empire? It's one of my favorite game for the XBOX and one of my top 10 RPG for last gen. And I hope this is true, I want to play Jade Empire 2 on this gen consoles or the next!
That would be like a dream come true to me. Jade Empire is one of my very favorite games from last generation. I loved everything about it. A new Jade Empire would be incredible. I am begging you, Bioware, please make this happen.
Bioware has easily moved towards the top as one of the best developers in the industry as they have great quality and very strong franchises. glad to see Jade Empire coming back. Maybe after ME3 and DA2 will they maybe have MDK, Baldur's Gates, Neverwinter Nights, or Shattered Steel make a comeback
yeah it is a great game, although i do wish that they have more variety in fighting mechanics. One of the best RPG last gen that i played.
NGP remake or port with the PS3 and Xbox. Please Bioware.
Would be VERY surprised. I'm pretty sure Bioware have enough on their plate to last them a while...
Hell yah! Jade Empire was dope as shit I think I remember owning that game. It was like kotor style combat set in some Chinese Dynasty.
That'd be awesome! I've just been re-playing past BioWare games, Jade Empire included, and the constant quality they put into their games is mind boggling.
yeah, bioware along with naughty dog are my two favorit devs, with dice following right behind.
Very nice day for announcements, now I can finaly play this considering I haven't played the first. I FAIL :(
lol yes go play it now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i loved this game; this was very underrated.
It needs to stay on its original console
DO WANT!! Jade Empire was a fantastic game - I've probably played it 30 times. I'm always disappointed how often it's overlooked when talking about good rpgs. It would be sooooo awesome if BioWare came out with a new one. Jade Empire had my favorite videogame character name ever - Sir Roderick Ponce Von Fontlebottom the Magnificent Bastard, voiced by the legendary John Cleese. He also had my favorite weapon in the game, a blunderbuss named Mirabelle.
one of the most funny and witty part of the game was w/ sir roderick ponce. Ah good times, good times.
I got one better BioWare Bring back Knights Of The Old republic franchise. @Darkfiber I don't want a MMO I want Kotor 3 or at lease a HD Kotor 1 and HD kotor 2 for Xbox 360 and PC.
They are, it's an MMO and that's all it'll ever be.
Perhaps if they gave it a nice update it could be cool. The subject matter isn't something that's terribly interesting to me but I'd probably give it a shot.
Fuck yeah! Jade Empire is one of the best!
I have the Jade Empire collectors edition, it's a truly amazing game. I seriously have been waiting on any news with this franchise, we were promised sequels and have yet to see any. Would love a new version or straight up sequel. E3 reveal perhaps?
I have the xbox collectors edition i bought for 5 bux a few weeks back. It acually looks great on the 360 with my 46in tv. They have it on live also but i wanted a disk. Great game, the xbox had some great rpgs that still hold up today.
i picked up the collectors edition on steam awhile back for 3 bucks! loved the game, got stuck however and have yet to complete it.
$5 says they'll turn it into a Mass Effect clone like Dragon Effect 2.
Over the last few years i've took a rather backward stance to Bioware. Some of their ideas...disconcerted me. To me, Dragon Age was laid out to be more than it ever could be. Game was okay, but between linearity, lack of scale and shit dlc, it disapointed me. Jade Empire was such a game however, and if you look at all of Biowares games, JE stands out (at least) as one of the most original. I'd love to see a sequal. I mean come on, its fucking ripe for the making, but as Vegeta said, i dont want no ME clone. They can do something different. Incorporate the speech within combat or something, would make it all Kung fu movie style. Tried to play JE a few months back but i swear the 360 generates massive frame rate drops that i don't remember at all there being on the xbox. Wierd.
Pfft, that's like saying Shenmue 3 is on it's way because Ryo Hazuki was a playable character in Sega All Stars Racing. Still, you never know, and I would love to see a Jade Empire 2. I regard it alongside KOTOR as the best RPGs ever made.
This was the one game I wanted on the original xbox. With as much as Bioware has improved since then, I'm sure they could do an even better job with a new Jade Empire.
I really hope this happens! Jade Empire is my favorite Bioware game!
