Andriasang: Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino revealed via Twitter earlier this week plans for a new title announcement to be held in April. "Once this is announced," he wrote, "it will become an extremely anticipated title."
Dark Cloud 3 was rumored title by PSuniverse, durring last TGS. DC3 and Legend of Dragoon 2. I want both, but i want more DC 3. Please let it be it.
I find it weird that Level-5 would be announcing the new title. Usually Sony announces the Level-5 developed games unless of course it is a Sony event happening. Famitsu will be the first to announce it probably. I'm hoping it is either Rogue Galaxy 2 or Dark Cloud 3.
i hope its Dark Cloud 3 or Legend of Dragoon2 it might be White knight 2, if they haven't officially announced it
White Knight Chronicles 2 has officially been announced.
PLEASE BE DARK CLOUD 3! #2 was VASTLY underrated and overlooked, it was an absolutely beautiful game and I really want to Falcon Punch somebody if this game doesn't get announced! Level-5 would be MENTAL if they didn't make a new Dark Cloud game.
I'm not a huge RPG fan but I love both Dark Cloud games.
This i hope this game isn't for Wii or DS or even PSP.. i want another RPG for PS3... i'm thinking RG2, that game was awesome
its white knight story for ds + dark cloud 3 ps3/wii. Maybe?
Sony own's both IP so Nintendon't get either... Dark Cloud 3 is their announcment. We made mention of this long ago... We saw some stuff at GDC and talked to a few here and there about what Level 5 was up to and everyone is under the impression Darkcloud 3 is Sony's Febuary 2011 RPG.
Don't screw with me man! I'm serious as a heart attack, I NEED Dark Cloud 3 to be announced, I just have to know if it's happening or not.
I'm 100% sure of it... The kicker here is that from what we've been hearing Sony isn't backing many RPG's. A lot of them have been put on the table for Sony and 85% of them are being rejected by them. We know they are spending millions on Legend of Dragoon 2 and they're footing the dev cost for Darkcloud 3 but aside from an MMO Sony is creating for PShome there isn't much to pick from we gather.
I really hope it is Dark Cloud 3 though. What happens if you are wrong nogolis? Are you going to disappear?
Whoa whoa whoa When did this happen? 0_o Legend of Dragoon 2!? I didn't see this
The only time I disapear is when my band and I are on tour... And that's for obvious reasons. I am 100% positive of this. A side note, Sony is buying another studio this year too. A close one. I can't say it's Level 5 because I don't think it is level 5 but some people said it could be the case as a ton of Sony employee's are setting up shop with these guys in a new office.
Ok now back up and tell me where Legend of Dragoon 2 was confirmed lol
listen, nogilis/VGtilt/Gamesblow you better be right, if not get ur butt out of n4g.
@pope: it doesn't matter if he's wrong or right, he's gone about it the right way and told an interesting story, bravo sir. Also if your right about sony denying most RPGs then F*%*$$% dammit sony that's the one genre you need more of right now!
Dude that isn't funny. You BETTER not be lying about LOD 2. Seriously. That's mean.
Sony is buying another studio? Hmmm... Well, the only candidates I can really guess from would be Insomniac, Sucker Punch, and Relenteless. All are independent studios that work very closely with Sony. Insomniac may be the best bet, really, what with all the multiplatform rumors spinning around all the time, Sony may find it necessary to sweep them up if Insomniac wants to go along with it. Considering how utterly close of a relationship Insomniac has with the Sony-owned Naughty Dog, I would think that it would be a no-brainer to have Insomniac as an official developer under the Sony umbrella rather than just an independent with VIP treatment. Sucker Punch and Relentless could be the choice for largely the same reasons, though they are not under constant scrutiny to turn over and do multiplatform development so Sony may not deem it necessary to take measures to keep them under their wing. I think that From Software seems like it could be a choice, but they are a pretty large studio that has multiple teams working on projects for many different platforms, so even though Sony has worked closely with From Software on some projects like Demon's Souls, the entire company may not be a good fit for Sony, but the thought of them leads me to another company... Perhaps they would be looking to buy just Silicon Studios, which is working with From Software on 3D Dot Game Heroes? Silicon is an independent company and Sony already owns a share of the company (here's the list of shareholders): CREEK&RIVER Co., LTD. CSK HOLDINGS CORPORATION EXA CORPORATION GAGA COMMUNICATIONS. INC. IMAGICA Technologies Corp. ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Corp. Mitsubishi UFJ Capital Co., LTD. NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc. Ray Corporation SGI Japan, Ltd. Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. SQUARE ENIX Co., LTD. Sumisho Computer Systems Corporation YAMAHA CORPORATION At one point Takehiro Terada was talking about 3D Dot Game Heroes being ported to the 360, but in recent days he keeps saying it'll never happen, and he never gives a well fleshed out reason, so perhaps it is because his company is being optioned by Sony to purchase the remaining shares? Finally, I would say that Level-5 is unlikely. There are probably even some smaller developers of PSN games that are more likely to be picked up by Sony than Level-5, such as ThatGameCompany (Flow, Flower), Q-Games (PixelJunk series and XMB design, seems like a good candidate), Hello Games (the upcoming Joe Danger), or someone else. Level-5, though, may be too big. They are not just a developer in Japan, but also a publisher, with most of their games now being self-published and not even a majority being released for Sony platforms. They have over 150 employees, the company assets include a football stadium in Fukuoka City... They just might be a little too diversified and valuable right now for Sony to purchase them. It's possible, but I think the least likely of all the companies I've mentioned. Insomniac is similarly valuable in terms of assets, but they have a more ingrained relationship with Sony and they are more important to the Sony brand, having already released 5 PS3 games, versus 1 by Level-5, and Insomniac has not diversified out into self-publishing and multiplatform development, so even though they would be quite expensive, I think they make a much better match for Sony's purchasing conquests than Level-5.
After playing White Knight Chronicles....the sequel better damn well be a significant improvement. I felt so let down...I still like it, but it fell way below my expectations =(
With the current JRPGs not being on par with the PS2 generation titles, having an online component isn't all that important to me, i just want a solid JRPG, only 3 PS3 JRPGs this gen have been solid, Valkyria Chronicles, Demon's Souls and Tales of Vesperia(yay for no worldwide release /s).
Regardless of what a lot of sites and crappy magazines (Edge) are saying, FFXIII is a great game as well, and ranks right with Valkyria Chronicles as my favorite this gen (unless you count Persona 4, since it came out this gen time frame). Demon's Souls would be right there with them, but even though it's made by a Japanese company, when I think of JRPG, I do NOT think of a game like Demon's Souls (not a bad thing, it's just that it seems more like a WRPG than JRPG).
Extremely anticipated? Am I reading this from Level-5, who just released White Knight Chronicles out here? They'd better start redeeming themselves before they predict hype among RPG fans. Maybe they'll do Dragon Quest X... maybe on a real console this time? That worked pretty well for them not too long ago, and I don't see why they wouldn't come back to that series.
I WISH it came out for the PS3, lol.
me want legend of dragoon 2 i mean a sequal is long overdue and even the first one is my favourite to this day out of all the rpgs that come out.
It was a really good game, and has almost become a cult classic. The group of people that made the game are still around, and it was announced a few years ago they were working on something. I think it was called Angel Rings, but seriously believe it has to be vaporware, as no pics, info, or anything other than who was making it, was released. That being said, they have to be working on something. What I believe would happen is they would make a game that might be the spiritual successor of LoD, but doubt they would call it LoD2, since the first one wasn't a very good seller, and the average consumer wouldn't know what it was. Anyway, LoD sequel is nice and all, but much more interested in Dark Cloud 3. Probably the best RPG released on the PS2, in my opinion (that's saying a lot...might have to put Persona 3 and 4 up there with it), and we all know the sequel's gonna come eventually. Just imagine if they did as much to DC3 over DC2 as they improved DC2 over the first one. Very anxious to see the art style of the game as well, because DC2 was also one of the best looking ps2 games. Technically it was great, but the artistic value was phenomenal.
I still have LoD sitting on my desk near my PS3, i have been starting to play it again. If there is another i dont know if there will be a sequel, maybe a remake? It has been a while since i have played but I dont know how they would tie in a 2nd one...
Isn't there some big PS3 game being revealed next month? That really coincides with Level 5's announcement <_<
AND ANOTHER DAY AND ANOTHER EXCLUSIVE FOR PS3. POOR POTS NO EXCLUSIVE GAMES TO PLAY, LOL NOT EVEN EXCLUSIVE DLC.
Heck yes. I LOVED Dark Cloud 2.
I want to know when is Legend of Dragoon remake and Legend of Dragoon 2 coming out or anytime soon if its possible.
After the White Knight travesty I won't be anticipating anything from them. Try making an rpg instead of an mmo.
dark cloud 3
The bots don't deserve any EXCLUSIVE GAMES OR DLC after what Microshit pull with GTA IV Episodes, Fallout 3 and other Titles with timely exclusives for bot owners, Sony's PS3 fans had to wait almost years to get some of this DLC thats ridiculous.
Pfft, Level 5 will never make an exclusive game for Microsoft, let alone a multiplatform game, after what Microsoft pulled on them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
hotly anticipated by their fans. i'm hoping for Dark Cloud 3, but it could just as easily be another Professor Layton title. i'm loving White Knight Chronicles. it's a very addicting RPG, different for Level 5, and yet still feeling like a Level 5 game.
Please for the love of god let it be Dark Cloud 3. F%ck a sequel to White Night Chronicles, it better not be that.
WKC is good but I'd be real happy to see Dark Cloud 3.
I think the majority of Level-5's fans think this :) Like someone said above, some print did mention Dark Cloud 3 being in development. I just hope it really is Dark Cloud 3, it's been so long since the 2nd, my favorite so far from them. I'm all for them making new IPS, but damn gimmie Dark Cloud 3 first!
Glad to see more from Level 5 please be DC2 or LoD2 i want them both
I'm level 5's lil b*tch. I'm gonna buy what ever they make.WKC was good if you could get around the clunky battle system. I like it and will be geting WKC 2 and DC 3. If they get released. I think tri-Ace needs to get going on a current gen Valkyrie Profile game. That game had a Advanced Tactical Combination (ATC) battle system which kicked ass.
Extremely anticipated? I hope it is a Dragon Quest or Dark Cloud game. I'd be disappointed if it is anything else.
Dark Chronicles 3 with playstation Move?
I really hope it is Dark Cloud 3. If not that I hope it is True Fantasy Live Online. Mr. Hino has said he would like to revive the game and so I would be thrilled if it is either of these two games.
