this one is a looker. stunning and beautiful graphics combined with a unique and interesting gameplay elements. i'm sold! can't wait for the US version.

WKC is the same as FFXII but in HD... I'm not saying that like it is a bad thing but is not unique in any way. Or are you talking about the online aspect? Because that's pretty unique. This is the first Jrpg ever with something like that I think.

meepmoopmeep3582d ago

In Level 5 I trust

:)

(now please make another Jeanne D'arc type game for the PS3)

kewlkat0073582d ago (Edited 3582d ago )

I wonder what exactly they are talking about? This JRPG doesn't do much, and personally I still think, it's doesn't look as polished, but that's just me.

Final Fantasy 13 killer my @ss. Reminds me of FF12 with IU(western) characters. I'll still get it though. Not much JRPG's on PS3

INehalemEXI3582d ago (Edited 3582d ago )

All ive seen is melee so far it looks great but I wonder how much deeper it gets spells, ability's etc... and if theres haste items and spells. At first I was meh towards ff12 but Its a 9/10 in my book.

alster233582d ago

famitsu is full of sh!t. this game looks awesome.

@arika lol ur avatar saboteur class ftw

Did you guys see the same gameplay video as me? I mean the setting looks like a Fable 2 wannabe. And the combat, the person was simply button mashing combo over and over again. Very innovative.

ThanatosDMC3582d ago

I'll be fair and compare it to FF12. Am i the only one who noticed the emptiness of the town? I mean, the walkway/streets are gigantic yet you only see a handful of people walking around or doing something. They should have opted for something that FF12 did and had lots of NPCs that dont really do anything but they do fill the streets.

I was hoping that the gameplay was more like Kingdom Hearts or Tales of the World in which you constantly attack and not have to wait for a time interval deal. That would have been more innovative.

Either way, i'll just wait for FF13 Versus or the other. I cant see myself enjoying this game even with co-op.

Fair comment and I agree PS3 fans really need to stop over-hyping our games , but I think it's also not fair to really judge the game based soley on one video , but it does wreaks some-what FF12-ish...which is a good/bad thing in my book.

Im still looking forward to this game because I haven't really played a good JRPG on my PS3 and im a huge fan of Level 5 games.

And one last thing FF9 and FFX is two of the best FF games ever created....with the edge going to FF9 IMO...I just love that game..

Danja3582d ago

FFX is really good I suggest you give it another try the battle system is pure genious plus the Sphere Grid...good story also

FFX-2 was just to tie up loose ends I guess but I didn't really like it to be honest seems like they were just trying to milk FFX success..

RPG Guy3582d ago

Story and characters better be good though, honestly, Square should sue. This looks VERY familiar...haha

elorm93582d ago

I was excited for this game, but the combat system is really lacking. Meh, I just hope this isn't the only exclusive RPG that they'll make

Marceles3582d ago (Edited 3582d ago )

I've been watching the game on justin.tv all day and it plays alot like FF12 which isn't a bad thing. But please don't overhype this game...it's a good RPG but I didn't see anything to go OMG EPIC over, I don't know if it's the guy being a n00b and not doing the combos or what, but the combat didn't look much like the first trailer with the main character counter attacking with his shield and helping his friends out. It's the same 3rd person view, same command text on the upper left corner, same attack while a meter goes up which either you can do a combo or transform. I'm still picking it up because it'll probably be the best RPG out when it arrives, I just don't want PS3 fans to be upset if this game gets lower than an 8.5 or an 8. It's gonna be good, I'm just saying reviewers aren't going to give this game the props you think it deserves if you think the game is going to change the world of RPGs as we know it, or whatever hype everyone is carrying on about. Any game that's not "innovative" for PS3 is never going to get props and judging from the game, they're going to compare it to everything, maybe even Gears for some stupid reason.

@Danja - FFX was great, FFX-2...published by Square-Enix, you hit the nail on the head. Milking the hell out of it...

If you loved FFXII (I did for gameplay...story and characters sucked) then you should go for this game. HOWEVER, this is not the revolution, FFVII OMG GOTY title some of the Sony crowd were hyping it to be.

Day one for me, love the vid. Great visuals, solid music, and the feel and atmosphere is pure Ivalice. I'll be buying into this and may even be more hyped for it now just for what it represents than any other title releasing next year.

ButterToast3582d ago (Edited 3582d ago )

i agree. i'm looking forward to this game and it will probably be a day one purchase but it will probably be lucky to get a few 8's out of reviewers. don't over hype it, you're just setting yourself up.

I don't know how the combat system works but it looks like a mix between FFXII and Xenogears. I would love it if it was a mix between FFXII, Xenogears, and Legend of Dragoon. that would be sick. I really just don't know how the combo system works though.

Man i stopped playing RPG's cus i wasted so much time in them but i might have to do an exception Lol

ngg123453583d ago

Surprised by the graphics. Most japanese developers make crappy looking games (outside of MGS4, and Capcom). Looks very good for a rpg, probably on a higher level graphical fidelity than fable 2 (looks slightly worse than Mass Effect though).... Looks better graphically than fallout 3, and oblivion though.

lord_of_balrogs3582d ago

You're not serious are you?
I think this game looks better than Mass Effect, that game was amazing but the detail was really bland, but really WNC looks like a Fable 2 wannabe, that city could of been dropped straight from Albion. And Fallout 3 destroys this in graphics in every single way.

ukilnme3582d ago

@ lord_of_balrogs

This is to be expected. Let them have their hopes and believe what they must. A lot of hopes are riding on this because of the lack or JRPGs on the PS3. They need this to do well to keep their sanity.

Menchi3582d ago

Umm, how many different interpretations of a Medieval Fantasy city can you -really- have?

It's not a "Fable 2 Wannabe" it's simply using the same typical fantasy setting. There were PLNETY before Fable 2, and I imagine there will be plenty after.

tetsuhana3582d ago

Apparently Fable invented Medieval Fantasy settings...

Why o why3582d ago (Edited 3582d ago )

he's saying it doesn't look as good as mass effect. Did he edit or are you guys getting the wrong end of the stick here.

Fallout graphics were not that great in my opinion. What was so great about them?? White Knight C graphics look as if they have aged to be honest. I would prefer better graphics of course but if they deliver a glitch free rpg with a great story ill be glad. Im tired of UE3 and you should be too if you know what i mean. Merry xmas

LOL @ 'Fable 2 wannabe', yeah that pioneering title just like Gears pioneering cover system right? Not to be disrespectful but some people may over hype games whilst overs think that their games were the blueprint that other games copy.

While Mass Effect was a good game the graphics weren't the best it could be and it had some framerate issues. Frankly, Fallout 3 was gorgeous, well the 1st person perspective was gorgeous, the third person was plain hideous and revolting to look at.

WNC is a Fable 2 wannabe, it looks and feels the exact same as Fable 2 but the JRPG elements tacked on. That being the combat.

Obviously, Fable 2 is not the pioneering title for this setting but it definetly brought it to the next level, WNC looks like it wants to emulate this level but it obviously doesn't do that great of a job.

Gears wasn't a pioneering title for the cover system but it brough it to the next level as well.

Why o why3582d ago (Edited 3582d ago )

what can i say, merry x mas and that was a fair reply. Ill wait for wkc to be released before i compare it to fable 2 but i see where ur coming from almost. Im not sure fable bought anything to the next level to be fair but thats ur opinion and ur entitled to it. The combat videos from e3 or tgs looked WAY better than the ones shown recently.

I also think uncharted borrowed from and improved on the gears cover system but i wouldnt call it the uncharted cover system just the cover system used in uncharted
