Looky looky another turn based jrpg doing great.

ZeekQuattro66d ago

It's amazing that so many studies are shocked everytime a turn-based RPG sells well. Its almost as if theres a market for them or something. 😆

Square Enix: “I’m going to ignore that”

shinoff218365d ago

Pretty much. Said the same thing on reddit and peoplenare killing me over it. I ain't wrong though.

VersusDMC65d ago

Of course they are...the article says they are impressed with 1 million shipped week 1. FFXVI shipped 3 million week 1.

If you're going to make this turn based games sell more argument at least use pokemon for it to make logical sense...

@versus FF is a much bigger name than Like a Dragon though. Of course it sold 3 million compared to 1. If FF had LADs miniscule budget, they'd be happy

I haven’t bought it yet. There’s been a flood of games and I have missed a couple games I wanted to play. I’ll get it sooner than later but I still don’t have time to play it

Outstanding game. 2nd best in the series for me

Ravenkiss65d ago

This game deserves even more praises and should be in my opinion the best JRPG of the year.

MrNinosan64d ago

If Rebirth and Dragons Dogma 2 wasn't released in the same year maybe.
I got the Platinum in both Infinite Wealth and FFVII Rebirth, and Infinite Wealth is absolutely amazing, but Rebirth is a masterpiece, a few steps above.

Ravenkiss64d ago

I'm pretty sure Rebirth is a great game. I'd get into Remake and Rebirth when the time comes, but after I'm done with LADIW Platinum, I'll go right away on Rise of the Ronin!

Persona 3 Reload, Like a Dragon Success Proves The Viability of Turn-Based RPGs

Nameer from eXputer: "With Persona and Like a Dragon, SEGA delivers a bold middle finger to the idea that turn-based games are outdated and I couldn't be happier."

Barlos40d ago

I love RPGs and spent 151 hours with Infinite Wealth. Currently playing through Rebirth and Reload, and I have to say I'm far more engaged with Reload because I prefer the turn based combat. I'm not a fan of the real time combat in Rebirth. If the game and story wasn't so good, I likely wouldn't entertain it at all. I much prefer turn based games.

CrimsonWing6940d ago

As someone who prefers turn-based I’ve real-time, I can definitively say I would choose Rebirth’s battle system over everything. It’s the perfect fusion of turn-based and real-time and I get. Rush using it over turn-based. That being said I do like the turn based for Infinite Wealth.

Barlos40d ago (Edited 40d ago )

I agree, even over 150+ hours I never once found the combat in Infinite Wealth a chore, I loved every minute of it. I can't agree with Rebirth's system though. There's something about it that just doesn't click with me. I prefer pure turn based combat for sure. That's why I also enjoy Persona's combat so much - in particular P5 Royal. With all the Persona fusing options it adds a lot of depth, and you really can create the perfect Persona for you.

shinoff218340d ago

Same thing, nostalgia and story. My biggest issues in rebirth are combat, and not being able to talk to npcs.

VersusDMC40d ago

Persona 3 reload and infinite weath boasts sales of 1 million at launch on multiple platforms.

And Rebirth launched to 2 million which is seen as concerning on one platform.

Why is it more viable to make turn based games when they sell half as much?

Theses articles should at least highlight turn based games that sell the same or more than non turn based games to make a coherent argument. Like Pokemon or Honkai Star Rail.

Ironmike40d ago (Edited 40d ago )

Rebirth sales are do wn there's multiple articles stating it hasn't sold as well I don't y game is fantastic but it hasn't done was well hope they do 3 as spent a lot time on both remake and rebirth but I like both turn based and live action

raWfodog40d ago

The author acts like turn-based RPGs are a dying genre. Recent successful games such as Octopath Traveler series, Sea of Stars, the Trails series, Honkai Star Rail, and Baldurs Gate 3 (mentioned in the article) would prove that there is still market out there hungry for them. I’m blessed enough to love both turn-based and action rpg games.
