This is fantastic news for Xbox 360 gamers in Australia, Lost Odyssey is shaping up to be another quality JRPG on the Xbox 360, the Xbox 360 is looking to be the system to own if you want to play JRPG's in 2008. I know I will be pre-ordering Hironobu Sakaguchi's latest epic for the extra bonus.

sorry pal but no xbox console will ever be the best console for jrpgs. what a tard. but this will be a great game .

ruibing6001d ago (Edited 6001d ago )

I'm sure it'll be a great JRPG, I just don't know why you bothered to refer to the 360 in such a honorific way three times in a single sentence. This game is probably the only thing that could entice me to purchase a 360 some years down the line.

Im working on Eternal sonata, I will be getting this one. It's old-school and that's how I like my RPGs.

I've been playing FFXII on and off and sadley, I've gotten bored. I've miss the suspense of not knowing what monsters are in a certain area before I fight them. Now you got monsters looking like retards, walking around aimessley, which are easily avoidable.

I don't like the automated fighting system. I Wonder how FFXIII will be like. This game is old-school which is my style.

I liked blue dragon more. Lost odyssey is the shit though.

jznrpg120d ago

Two of the few games I still own for Xbox360 . I have Magna Carta 2 , Last Remnant but also have the PS4 version so I may have got rid of it and I have the DS version of Blue Dragon. I think and a few others but I forget what they are since I don’t dust them off. that’s about it.

shinoff2183119d ago (Edited 119d ago )

Another one I still havent got to try is infinite undiscovery. I read it was pretty linear but I usually fk with tri ace(star oceans are great).

Really my only issue with lost odyssey was the level cap they hit you with throughout the game. I enjoy just relaxing and doing some grinding every once in awhile. Could've atleast given the option. Other then that. Excellent game.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The 360 imo had atleast half or more that Gen of being the better jrpg system. I bought one earlier then I normally would have for some, and Alan wake. Japanese devs really got in their feelings that Gen and dropped the ball(thanks Phil phish, cocky ass ign, etc)

You'd be better off playing Lost Odyssey on an XBO or Series X as no disc swapping and it looks and plays much better. Same with Blue Dragon. I still keep my 360 hooked up for games not on the bc list. for everything else, I use the series x now. Just last night I installed arkham origins as there is no 8th gen version like asylum/city.

I love having bc on xbox one/series hardware.

When I bought the the Xbox one off a couple worker. That was the first thing indid. Bought blue dragon and lost odyssey. Been waiting to catch infinite undiscovery on sale but I forget to check.

I used to own the 360 versions but I bought these digital. I'd like to track down the 360 ones again but no huge deal. I was actually playing through lost odyssey waiting for starfield to drop.

Is Lost Odyssey coming to PS, too?

cthulhucultist120d ago

The game was indeed amazing. Great characters, gameplay and story!

But the dream sequences penned by Shigematsu were sublime.

I still remember many of these stories and I have integrated in the past in my D&D campaign many years ago.

RpgSama120d ago

I'm not going to lie, I cried on more than on a couple of them

Dabigsiebowski120d ago

Microsoft should have just kept pumping money into these guys. Same with a lot of the other studios... the blundered hard.

Lost Odysee deserved a franchise even though development wasn't smooth

Michiel1989120d ago

Am I the only one who doesn't wanna see every good game get sequel after sequel? It was a great game, but sometimes it's better to just make a one off and then create a new universe. Sadly that costs a lot more money and publishers don't wanna risk it, but I would definitely prefer it

shinoff2183119d ago

I'm fine with sequels in jrpgs, even in the vain of ff sequels, all new stories and characters. It does get old in other genres though sometimes. For the most part I just game by game basis it all.

FinalFantasyFanatic119d ago

They could have done it like Final Fantasy, kept the title name and just start with a new world/characters, it's not like the creator isn't familar with that.

Concertoine120d ago

Idk, Japan never bit for Xbox despite their best efforts around this era. Mistwalker never exploded either, despite future partnerships with Nintendo whichhad a much better chance at success

BrainSyphoned120d ago

It's not like it has had any competition since 2007. Would really like to own the short stories from it in book form.

PapaBop119d ago

360 had some amazing JRPGs in it's early days, Blue Dragon, Eternal Sonata, Tales of Vesperia off the top of my head were all amazing games.

jznrpg120d ago (Edited 120d ago )

The problem with most MS games on 360 was they didn’t make the games they paid for them and that makes you less money in the long run and isn’t something you can continue to do especially with declining sales of consoles. MS should have been starting and growing studios from the beginning but they went for paid games and it leaves them without the knowledge and culture of making games.

shinoff2183119d ago

Good points. Never thought of that like that back then.

Sgt_Slaughter119d ago

Not to mention killing the Japanese market that had all sorts of crazy and fun releases up until 2009-2010. They could have gained momentum on Nintendo and kept that going into the Xbox One era, but decided to "unify" efforts and that all but ended their presents in the country. Now, PS4's outsell the Xbox Series S three years into the new system's life cycle, and the 2/3DS at one point was doing the same.
