AQ Interactive delivered some some sad news just in time for Christmas today with the announcement over in Japan that Cry-On has been cancelled.
I want to laugh but, i would hurt my self, because i looked forward to the next Mistwalker title. =/
I've been looking forward to this title since 2005 now, sigh.
Ive lost faith in japanese rpgs. Didnt like lost odyssey, blue dragon, infinite undiscovery. White knight got an average score at famitsu. What now. Star Ocean is really the last hope.
If you actually saw White Knight Chronicles you will now its the best JRPG at the moment. FAMI Gave MAss Effect 11/40 The Chinese and Japanese players where saying how good it is and how did FAMI gives 27/40 (Yes I can read little Chinese and Japanese) and the player streaming it (and finished the game....he didn't stop playing. 30 hours straight exlcuding every time he dies because the game reset timer when you die from last save point) main story only. He rates is 9/10 and said its best JRPG on current consoles. He also said next streaming will be Yakuza 3 followed by FFXIII Demo in March To whom clicked disagree. 遅延アメリカ
Well, the most you listed are for the 360... and Lost Odyssey ftw. =/ You see... White Knight Chronicles is going to be awesome imo. =/ And Star Ocean 4? Dude Star Ocean were never a real good RPG, just good. you see? So dont get your hopes too high.
star ocean is a AJRPG. and thus has more issues then a turned based anything. also Just FYI theres alot of really good JRPG for the ps3 and 360, that will never make it state side, i saw some really sweet trailers for some when i went on my jap 360 account. but i know SO4 will be worth my while. same for 13, and if i have to ill just go pick up a old ps2, and play some of the rpgs ive missed over the past 2 years. -nai-
Star Ocean is real time combat and Star Ocean 3 was medicore. It was very big (2 DVD9 that old 8.7 GB each, not 6.4GB) but it got too boring and they kept sretching the story too much. 事実をばかになるお客様の権利
so the game wasn't that good huh... so tell me what part of the story did you hate most, that kept getting dragged out. T_T -nai-
Spoiler of SC3 When you find out you're just a program and go out of the "screen" to the real world...
lol NaiNaiNai got pwned, he expected Gun_Senshi to be lying hahahah on topic - I liked Lost Odyssey from Mistwalker, so I was looking forward to this game. Though I didn't even like the look of Blue Dragon, but I'm guessing they will make BD2 because it is more recognisable (especially in Japan cos of the anime)
NOOOOOO! I was looking forward to this one.
Yeah thats what killed it for me too. Up until that point it was a great game, but when that happened i don't know i just didn't care enough to finish it.
Cry-On? When did they announce this game?
I don't remember it being OFFICIALLY announced, but there was a website and it did contain some early concept images
I remember Sakaguchi discussing the topic of the game, saying he wanted to create a game that could force you to cry, be it through sadness or happiness, trying to get you to feel massive emotion every 30 or so minutes. It sounded amazingly interesting and would of loved to see some form of outcome. I hope this news is false.
haha whatsup man. Yeah, It would be a shame if this news is true. Anyway, if this game is in fact cancelled, I'm pretty sure Sakaguchi's next project will still retain the same emotional impact as Cry-On.
Not surprised considering the sales of Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey
those games actually did respectable numbers... Lost Odyssey was good also
please dont make me bring up getaway 3 and eight days now 2 sony first party exclusives now yall run along now, go on get !!
They were not cancelled totally, just that the team working on them have been assigned to work on something else now. The Getaway 3 will definatly come, maybe towards the end of this gen but it'll come. The franchise was very sucessful on the PS2 and would be silly not to make a sequel.
Actually, sales had nothing to do with it. It was development. We hadn't seen gameplay footage of it at all (i think), no trailers, no footage, nout. Just that development was in progress and concept art. Development was lagging behind so they had no choice to cancel. Sales had nothing to do with it.
because I think the articles I have here says otherwise! http://www.ps3fanboy.com/20... http://www.britishgaming.co... http://www.gamesradar.com/p...
has said that C&C:Red alert 3 was canceled for ps3, but 2 month ago EA announced a ps3 version again, which will use the capability of the PS3 and BLU-ray EDIT: DANJA you are right here are some PHantom disagrees^^
Well i'm not sure then, just that because a few weeks ago there was an interview with a producer at one of sonys internal studios and they asked them their thoughts on the cancelling on those two games, they said that the getaway will almost certainly will be re-started at a later date. It is their job to officially deny things like this, they do it all the time - like said above, look at the C&C they flat out denied that a good few times before saying it is in development.
Nathan drake, you are misinformed, Blue dragon sold +- 2 million, and Lost odyssey did 1.5 M.
And a ps3 fanboy of all people wants to talk about how poorly these titles sold.........We are talking about the 360 not the pS3.
the 360 has no lineup for 2009. and this one is already canceled. its a bit different than sony's 2009 lineup which im sure you already know of.
My wonder is where did u get that 2m blue dragon sales ?? If ur talking about World wide then i guess alot of other game isnt a flop. As many of ur word have say n bash other titles makes me wonder if ur making number that dosnt even exits.
I actually didn't like Lost Odyssey. I felt like the main character was the most boring one I have ever played with. I didn't get past the first disc.
Merry Christmas Xbots.
Nobody here was hyped about it, most people never heard of it, and are looking more forward to Blue dragon 2 from the same studio. SO shove that controller up your ass.
atleast they didnt cancel it because it was to difficult to build on the 360 unlike a crappy system we all know about.
At least that crappy system is more reliable than a certain system we know as the XBox 360. Don't drag the PS3 into something that has nothing to do with the system in the first place.
Sad, just really sad, I was hoping to see this game being released!
I am wondering why Omega4 submitted the story. Basically, he is all about PS3 bashing.
lol, maybe hes no longer an xbot
he wanted to regain people trust. Sorry omega, keep losing bubbles not earning points.
I'll Cry On because I actually wanted this game, it was the one Mistwalker game that interested me from the premise alone.
yeh the concept did seem pretty interesting but I was more interested to see if Sakaguchi could actually deliver on his word to make gamers cry every 15 minutes..XD edit: [email protected] dis-agrees...I wonder what did I say now to offend the phantom dis-agreer with multiple accounts..XD
I don't think we're supposed to have wanted the game apparently.
well atleast Star Ocean 4 isn't far off edit: lol ..figured i'd get a disagree the moment I mentioned SO4..^_^
first time im hearing of it
""They (The Bots) are crying to us. Can you hear them? It is beautiful."" Just think of Daedalus from Resistance 2 saying that^ lol
Sad face =(
First Ensemble Studios & now this, Merry Christmas... Let's move on.
From the article: "Why should you care about this? Cry-On was the latest Xbox 360 RPG from Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey developer Mistwalker." So, apparently MS is abandoning its 1st party business. With the closure of Ensemble, Bioshock going multi, Bioware lost to EA, bleak 2009 exclusive lineup, things aren't looking good for the 360. Add to that the major 3rd party publishers closing down studios and canceling (multiplatform) projects and you have a crisis. Perhaps MS is slowly pulling out of supporting its console...
...Giving up on first party business? Aren't they stealing top developers and such and shoving them into new, internal studios? Like some new Scottish dev house? If so, shut it. Look how MS managed to fight its way into an already established industry and make massive ground and tell me they don't know what they're doing. Look how they managed to turn a bollocks year this year, one where they were predicted to get stomped, and are outselling its biggest rival 2:1. Credit where it's due.
What are you talking about ? MS isnt abandoning anything, they are reorganizing, for every studio they closed they opened a new one. And Cry one wasnt Mistwalker's latest project, thats Blue dragon 2.
Too bad, but i am sure they are working on other projects too, one of them being Blue Dragon 2, i am curious to see how much the Blue dragon team has improved since their previous title. Also i suppose the team that worked on Lost Odyssey works on something...
I agree, Alot of the Dev's say with the economic situation that they are canceling or are not going to make alot of new Ip's and concentrate on sequels of what has already worked.
so sony can 8days getaway 3 and pretty soon wardevil and all are 1st part titles yep nothing to c here move along
MS decided to dich Mistwalker for SE. Good choice. FFXIII is more worth than sakaguchi
Um, Mistwalker canned the title, not MS. It wouldnt hurt to actually read the article, instead of reading the title, pulling a conclusion and then start bashing.
Im not bashing. I liked Blu Dragon and i worshiped LO. I just got tired of Mistwalker when they decided no Nintardifie (destroy) BD with some sh*tty DS version. Anyways Square Anus in now making RPGs for microsoft.
Anyways your down to two bubbles one to go!
I was really looking forward to the next Mistwalker project. Their RPG's thus far haven't been exceptional, but they have been solid and very enjoyable. Sad day... :(
was it funding? But,you guys. . .it might be nothing. . .but Im totally throwing an idea out here.Maybe they want to buy the White Engine from SE to make a new I.P . . .cant see why SE would sell it to them,but,if Lost Oddessy used the Unreal Engine,their in the market of making games with other companies game engines.I hope MSFT didnt cut funding in any shape or form.
Cry some more - Heavy Weapons Guy
For a Company like MS that is looking to beef up it's rpg status, they are sure as hell cancelling or have a lot of them MIA right now. MarvelOnline: Canned FantasyOnline: Canned Huxely: MIA Boarderlands: MIA Dragon BallZOnline: MIA Conan: MIA RPG with the weird name (Can't think of it right now) Canned Final Fantasy XIII in Japan: MIA for now Project Offset: (Not sure which way this game is going to but it was mention for PS3,360 and PC the last I heard before had no publisher) MIA for now. And who knows what others have been canned or gone MIA.
On that note: Where is that Borderlands game? I remember seeing that game in "Game Informer" a while back.
They just arent the market they were before...it is probably a good thing if they all go multi platform....unless playstation can sell some because VC is the best rpg i have played this gen
VC is not a RPG it is a Tactical strategy game.
This is sad news because I really liked the idea for this game. I had a sick feeling this might happen because there has been no news on this game. But I really hoped it would not happen. I wonder what Mistwalker is up to making now instead of this game.
But this Xbot I know, Labwarrior, has been praising about this game forever, so - BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!
I wonder why Lab is not in this topic after all the Hype he was giving this game.
Still in 3rd are we?
