New video featured on Coded Soul website

PSP Fanboy writes:
Game Republic, makers of PS3 title Folklore, have been working on the PSP title Coded Soul for a while now. The game is shrouded in a lot of things, predominantly mystery. What information we can glisten generally come by means of pretty pictures or, as the recently updated Japanese site reveals, video. There are updated character pictures and profiles to check out and the new video may or may not answer some of the questions you've had about the game. We'll keep you up to date if anything else changes.

I need to pick up Folklore first

Doctor Strange3931d ago

Folklore is a good game sad it got overlooked for the most part. I'm still waitin on Dark Mist their PSN game to release in the America.

Coded Soul looks pretty good for a PSP game. I think its a rpg too I'm going to keep my eye on this.

It's just another Digital Devil Saga with Devil Summoner gameplay. I was really hoping for a Folklore portable game, but this Coded Soul game is 100% SMT

Skerj3931d ago (Edited 3931d ago )

Instant buy for me, I have every SMT game that was released outside of Japan. This just means PSP got an instant classic RPG, and it looks SO freaking awesome.

Dude, those are Folks in that video. I saw a Ga-Boi and at the beginning there were 3 Ogmas running. I hope this becomes Sony's first party SMT or FF. In the sense that both series has a metaworld and all games within the series share those similarities.

KidMakeshift3931d ago (Edited 3931d ago )

It's still not what I was hoping for. You don't collect nor use folks in the same way, and the battlefield is separate from the spirit realm / technological world. I wish they would've just kept the game within the confines of the original with new realms and folks to collect and use. However, I'll still give it a chance

Also, with the PSP store now incorporated into PSN I wouldn't doubt that there will be downloadable packs for the game

Skerj3931d ago

Yeah I know what you mean, here's hoping to a full fledged sequel for PS3 with more open environments and increased interaction. I wouldn't mind seeing some folks giving you passive abilities, or certain combos of folks increase each other's potency.

I just got back into the first one again and it's delightfully long, I purchased all of the packs and installed them but never got around to playing the game again. Now that I have time I'm so happy with the purchase.

KidMakeshift3931d ago

The game is around 30hrs if you upgrade the folks, plus the downloadable packs are quite long as well. There'll probably be 2 more packs (and possibly another pack in celebration of the PSP release) coming to the US (Japan has 6 so far with no new additions announced) then the contest winning folks.

I really wish this game sold better (it's practically adult Pokemon). It's nice that Game Republic has been supporting the game so strongly and offering a nice amount of downloadable content. I think they make amazing games (yes, even Genji... to a certain degree), so I can only hope they'll make a sequel or prequel.

Skerj3931d ago (Edited 3931d ago )

Yeah it was criminally undermarketed by Sony. I picked it up on launch and the store clerks at GameStop didn't have a clue what it was. I explained everything to them while they were checking me out and they concluded that it was cool.

It's funny that I downloaded the Japanese demo when it was first released and instantly paid off the game, yet I'm only at Undersea City with Ellen and Warcadia (HATE) with Keats. I'm digging the dual story dynamic though, it was instantly interesting to me from when the game was announced. It also has some of the most imaginative creature designs, art direction, and the best boss battles this side of Okami. I can't wait to see how this all wraps up in the end.

Game Republic is a pretty good developer, Sony should acquire them for 1st party titles. The first Genji kicked ass, the second well uh it was gorgeous but it was severely stripped of elements from the first game. You could tell it was rushed, hell a cutscene alluded to a horseback fight which was also listed on the back of the case and it's nowhere to be found in the game.

KidMakeshift3931d ago (Edited 3931d ago )

I wish they would add a map editor pack for the dungeon maker. I still haven't got to Okami yet. I'm now just getting to Zelda: TP

The thing that ruined Genji 2 was the length. The levels were stretched out to the point where they just became repetitive and boring (Purgatory, Boat Level). Plus, the camera wasn't very good. It was ridiculous how times I died from something hitting me out of camera view.

Skerj3930d ago

Hah it's good you're playing TP first then, because Okami is going to blow your mind. I think average playtime is around 40-50 hours and it's aaaaaaall good. I get pissed at Capcom for disbanding Clover because of that game and GodHand.

KidMakeshift3930d ago (Edited 3930d ago )

I know. TP is pretty fugly looking. How can you release a game that looks so dated after Wind Waker? I love Midna though. I'm going to hold off on Okami to see if the Wii version has any extra stuff. I have Godhand but I don't really like the custom combo system, maybe I just need to play it more.

I wonder what's going to come out of Seeds studios?
