A new scan of The Last Story has been released.
The Last Story is coming along nicely.
I bet this game will have towns.
Also not being made by Square Enix... Would like to know 1) what are the real cost issues with making HD JRPGs and 2) aside from fanboy bit*hing, why can't they just go with a sub-HD model? I mean if they're going to complain about it, use it as an excuse, then don't use it. Pretty sure the first "JRPGs" on the PS3 where $60-$90 date sims for crying out loud! That fu*king stupid Megazone 23 game!
It's not just costs with JRPGs, it's for all games. 360 and PS3 development is just too expensive and it means publishers have to concentrate on the big games that are guaranteed to sell loads. The problem is made worse for JRPGs which often have bigger worlds and more varied enemies and the teams can be working on them for years and JRPGs don't sell well, particularily on consoles this gen. There's very little guarantee that they'll make money. It's not the HD resolution that costs money either, it's the actual assets so if they were to adopt a cheaper model then there wouldn't be much point in putting them on the PS3 or 360 because they wouldn't look like PS3 or 360 games. You can see that strategy in Nippon Ichi's game, The Last Rebellion(that's right isn't it?). It's particularily striking that Nippon Ichi's profits dropped 97% and they don't exactly break the bank with their games production values so imagine what could happen if they did? That's why I think all three of the console makers got it wrong this gen, Sony and MS overshot the mark by lots and it's bit them(and a lot of third parties) in the ass and Nintendo undershot the mark(which has damaged their relationships with third parties).
The current gen just happened too soon, with the only thing to fall back on the generic UE3 game engine which wasn't as easy to use as promised. And even then we still got PS2 level JRPGs, mostly on the HD system that wasn't really using HD for a good period and further hampering things by relying on DVD9 for storage. Who knows what legitimate assets would have been there by waiting year or more if "someone" just didn't have to beat the other two more established console makers to market...
looks really good
What a wasted title. Should have done it on the HD console, and that will bring the full potential of the game.
I actually agree with you ClownBelt.
really? you mean just like blue dragon? or all those other jrpgs that can barely be passed of as HD jrpg's what full potential are you talking about
I would rather have big worlds and towns in my rpg thank you very much....looks at ff13 :( 480p wont kill me, bad voice acting and limited content might.
I don't particularly care about graphics, but if you're talking about big worlds and towns imagine what this game could achieve with on a blu-ray disc
You dont have to imagine, just look at FF13 to see what HD development does to games... That's probably one of the dumbest comments I've ever read on here. ONe of the biggest HD RPGS just released. Has no towns or any of the stuff you are talking about. How can you claim it would be superior in HD when the proof says something different. Not that it couldnt be done in HD but I wont want 10year development cycle for it. Took 13 5 years and look how it didnt include ANY of that stuff
oh please, some game uses all blu-ray space and it short. you press start and you finish the game .wtf is this shet
I was just saying that if a developer was to make a game with a big world and lots of towns, then obviously they'll be able to add more onto a blu-ray disc compared to a DVD, but it's up to the developer.
Wanna see video feed, looks interesting.
dont care what system. this gen needs more good jrpg
+1 for one of the greatest fucking pieces of TRUE HIP-HOP for your avatar alone. I like'em Brown, Yellow, Puerto Rican and Hatian Name is Phife dog from the Zulu Nation. Yes who cares what system, just get off your ass and check out more info.
well i give you bubble for your name
http://www.youtube.com/watc... wait and this for good old times, when i was chilling with friends. http://www.youtube.com/watc... and one of the songs to bboy to http://www.youtube.com/watc...
i gave you a bubble for your music taste
...but I probably won't. But interesting.
No new sreens:( but lovely new artwork.:D
i hope this gets released in uk
Last Story>>>>>>F F13.I buy Wii,this game and Zelda!
I did the same, but I never unstand why Zelda have so much hype :s Maybe when it came out it was great but right now it looks like a Playstation 1 game...
Where are these Zelda screens that nobody else has seen? Nothing showing what Zelda looks like has been released so how can you go around trolling it looks like a PS1 game?
I'm talking bout Twillight Pricess... Really looks like a PS1 game... And I dont need screens I own a WII!
@NeutralGamer Did you know Twilight Princess is actually a GameCube game ported to the Wii? and it still looks good for a Wii release title and no it doesn't look like a PS1 game. I'm sure the upcoming Zelda game will look WAY better because it's a true Wii developed game unlike TP.
why wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii? whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy tell me whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy y in that crap of console
Hey man, you have to remember it's not about graphics it's about presentation.
maybe because nintendo is helping with its production as well as publishing the game
yeah its not about graphics. i still played and loved morrowind, star ocean for the ps2 and kingdom hearts 2 dude and i had the next gen systems before i played them to.
Crap?Why?Look SMG 1-2,Last Story,Zelda,Metroid.FF13 its a huge CRAP!
Don't know what is going on, but the pictures look nice
Game looks great! I can't wait to finally have another RPG for my Wii!
Good, but FF13 & xenoblade are much better than it
the scan did not bring any news... BUT the header image is too EPIC!
I hope Nintendo shows off TLS at e3 or TGS
