Blue Dragon in Shonen Jump

The famous magazine Shonen Jump had the privilege of doing a big unveiling on Blue Dragon this week. Considering who the character designer is, it makes sense. A japanese friend sent me these two low quality cell phone photos showing a bit of the game. It will have to do until we get some true scans.

I got a feeling this game will be pretty big in Japan, not Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest big, but it'll be something. This past week the best selling game in Japan was a mediocre dragonball z ps2 gamer whose sales probably came more because of the love japanese fans have for toriyama's artwork than the actual game itself. Personally, I loved Chrono Trigger on my old SNES so I'm psyched for the stateside release of Blue Dragon.

My Prediction: This game sells a million....a cartoon starts up and triples in popularity....Blue Dragon 2 sells 5 million!

All good, I see MS are trying very hard to break into the Sony sphere..

One of the best of that era. Great game, great adventure!

Kurisu311d ago

I bought this game a couple of days ago, along with Lost Odyssey, while they're on sale in the Xbox Store. I never had a 360 back in the day so I missed out on these games, so I'm glad that I'll finally be able to try them out soon on my Series S.

raWfodog311d ago

Yep, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, and Gears of War were my favorite 360 games back when they first released.

Seraphim310d ago

no doubt. To this day it baffles me when this game gets hate. Sure it wasn't as epic as Lost Odyssey, but in it's own right it was a great game.

MrNinosan311d ago

Lost Odyssey is one of the best jrpgs of that era but got killed because it was bought up and released on the "wrong" console.

repsahj310d ago

Is there a chance that Lost Odyssey will be released on PS5? I really want to play it and Blue Dragon, too.

autobotdan310d ago

Both games are owned by Microsoft

andy85311d ago

Great game. The 360 had some really good turn based games back in the day. Absolutely loved Lost Odyssey too. I think they are both Sakaguchi creations.

ZwVw311d ago

Correction. Both Blue Dragon & Lost Odyssey (as well as Infinite Undiscovery) started off as in-house developed projects that went third party after MS killed off their Japanese development studios.

andy85311d ago

Doesn't really have anything to do with what I said though 😂 Sakaguchi wrote them both

Hofstaderman311d ago

This game together with Lost Odyssey, The Last Remenant and Tales of Vesperia convinced me to buy a 360. This game made my 2007 which ended off with mass effect.

CrimsonWing69311d ago

Honestly, a fantastic game, especially if you were a fan of old-school JRPGs. I hate that this genre rarely can come back to these roots.

Did you play Blue Dragon? Whatever the case might be, it deserves to be remembered

Destructoid: I remember where I was when Blue Dragon was announced. Although I already had an Xbox 360 and was ready for it, some folks I knew bought one just for it given who was involved (Nobuo Uematsu, Hironobu Sakaguchi, Akira Toriyama): as Mistwalker and Microsoft Game Studios made a mad dash to put out more games from Japanese studios on the Xbox ecosystem.

Blue dragon was fantastic. Love that game. It was my biggest reason for getting a 360.

gold_drake340d ago

i wanted to play it, but ...
1. its on xbox
and 2. i missed it when it was on gamepass ha.

shinoff2183340d ago

Kind of a shame it's not on gamepass so more people could enjoy it.

gold_drake339d ago

yeh, i missed it by one darn day.

Tacoboto338d ago

It's only $20 on the Xbox Store.
Lost Odyssey is only $25

-Foxtrot340d ago

I thought it was pretty good but I personally I think Lost Odyssey is better

Also, I know a lot of JRPGs are cheesy but damn…this one was amped up to 11.

shinoff2183340d ago

Lost odyssey lost me when I started to realize my grinding to level up wasn't adding up. So I never picked it up again. I really really despise that.
