First Japanese tv-commercial Blue Dragon

Blue Dragon is one the games that should become a major Xbox 360 system-seller this holiday season in Japan. Microsoft has already started their advertising campaign for the game and the first (kinda weird) tv-commercial today reached the internet.

I don't get it. The eye reflection and tear looked cool though.

Did i see the right one? Looked kinda short to me, maybe everything is just extra compact in Japan.

Capt CHAOS6337d ago

Lol, that wasn't a game selling ad to me.. But there you go, that's what makes me blitish and them Japanese :->

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

Kurisu171d 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.

raWfodog171d ago

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

Seraphim170d 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.

MrNinosan171d 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.

repsahj170d ago

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

autobotdan170d ago

Both games are owned by Microsoft

andy85171d 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.

ZwVw171d 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.

andy85170d ago

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

Hofstaderman171d 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.

CrimsonWing69170d 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_drake200d ago

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

shinoff2183199d ago

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

gold_drake199d ago

yeh, i missed it by one darn day.

Tacoboto198d ago

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

-Foxtrot200d 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.

shinoff2183199d 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.

MontyeKristo199d ago

I really enjoyed, at the time, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey and The Last Remnant.
