RPG Land: "NIS America has confirmed our suspicions and announced Atelier Totori (PS3) and Cladun x2 (PSP via PSN), as well as the unexpected Bleach: Soul Resurrección for PS3."
Atelier Rorona was a great game for 20 hours. Then the item management interface gets ridiculous and tacked-on combat becomes extra annoying. Kind of muddied what could have been great.
Dammit! I haven't even had the chance to pick up Neptunia or Ar Tonelico 3 yet. I will try to get them before they become difficult to find. But 3 more games coming to PS3 over the next few months? More Atelier, a new Bleach game, and my most-anticipated Disgaea 4. Holy cow. NISA releases more PS3 exclusives than any company besides Sony themselves, I think.
I still haven't picked up those games as well. I also need to go back and beat Atelier Rorona. So many games, so little time.
On the plus side, Totori reportedly fixed all the dodgy issues Rorona had. From a better story to a more in-depth combat, cleaner interface, and bigger area exploration. Oh, and of course, the better graphical presentation. That's what I've heard from importers, anyways.
I'm actually surprised. On Rorona, I didn't think its sales were super high. I did expect Cladun 2 because not having a disc and case means they don't need to make a big investment on it and lose cash. That's an example of a game that needs to be digital to be profitable in North America.
Nice that they're bringing Bleach over. Was hoping it would come to NA.
all hail NIS
Not really a fan of bleach, but I find it hard to resist ANY cel-shaded game. ~__~ And what's Totori? Is it another "timed" game like Rorona where you're forced to do stuff within a time limit? I hate that.
Re: "And what's Totori? Is it another "timed" game like Rorona where you're forced to do stuff within a time limit? I hate that. " I think so yeah. It's a direct sequel. I could be wrong though....
"And what's Totori? Is it another "timed" game like Rorona where you're forced to do stuff within a time limit? I hate that." Supposedly, the time limit is less punishing this time around- but yes, that's basically it.
finally a bleach game!!!! been listeing to the anime in japanese and reading the manga since a long time. Can't wait to buy that game and play it. does anyone know if the bleach game support japanese voice over?
