Title: Langrisser: Reincarnation coming Stateside?
Post by: TheMaskedOtaku416 on April 07, 2015, 06:42:39 PM
I've been a fan of Langrisser/Warsong since it appeared on the Genesis in the 90's and I got excited to read about the 3DS game that would revitalize the series but was sad to hear that there is not a release date as of late for the game.  I'm really looking forward to hopefully seeing it come over here, so have you heard any news about this title and if not, who might show interest in such a title?  Thanks.

I'm interested, or at least curious. If it does come over here, I might give it a go; might be up my ally.

The only news I've heard is that it is a thing that players in Japan will be waiting until somewhere in July for.

Any news of a possible localization will probably be after it gets released. Maybe E3 if we're lucky.

That said, I have no idea what this game will have or do compared to the earlier titles. That said, I still can't get over what they did to Jessica, (http://gematsu.com/2015/02/langrisser-series-regular-jessica-appear-3ds-revival (Warning: NSFW)), or the bikini armor (I mean, where's the armor's nipples?).

Well now. That's just uncalled for. (Seriously, she looks like a 12 year old dressing like she's 30; what's she doing, going out for Halloween?)

Yeah yikes.  It's not my culture (and that BS excuse of being mature, reincarnated, or older than she appears doesn't cut it), but c'mon... ō_ó

While I will never try to defend the old character designs with a straight face, at least Jessica's previous design (as she only ever really had the one across all four or five games she was in) didn't make her look like she's five years too old to compete on Toddlers in Tiaras anymore (not that there weren't like a hundred different ways to complain about the old designs, but at least borderline (http://i.somethingawful.com/forumsystem/emoticons/emot-pedo.gif) wasn't one of them).

Yeah, considering that Jessica looks like she's not even 10 or 11 and she's wearing something like THAT makes me REALLY wonder if they're even ringing the pedophile alarm or not... I mean, at least in Langrisser I, she looked her age but come on!  That is just ridiculous!  Other than the awkward costume designs not withstanding, I'd much rather go with the much more tasteful costumes that were seen in Langrisser II and possibly III instead of these, especially where Jessica's concerned (although I liked the name the English Warsong gave her, even though let's face the fact that everything else was translated so horribly that we should've asked for a revisit to the game at some point.  What was Masaya's deal with the U.S. anyway?  Why didn't they allow the rest of the series come over here?  I would've loved to at least see Langrisser I and III come over here or at the very least, Der Langrisser which was the SNES version of Langrisser II.  But yeah, if only we could get NIS or even Atlus interested in buying Langrisser: Reincarnation and maybe even a few more games in the series and bring them over, I'd very much like to see it happen.  It's been years already... Can we PLEASE be able to at least play ONE more Langrisser/Warsong game?

Speaking of which...I mean, speaking of beastmen in Suikoden...Tierkris apparently has a bunch of recruitable beastmen. I am now happy I bought it. Especially since I only spent $12 on it. :]

Code: [Select]
I am aware Tierkris has no more beastmen than any other Suikoden game. Don't take this moement away from me.

I was fortunate to grow up with Warsong (along with the Shining series), I've imported a few of the sequels for Saturn just because but I would love to see the series return to the US again... pastie wearing underage goddesses not withstanding.

Another old-school Langrisser fan here. Personally, I think there's a good chance we'll see this stateside. I think FE:Awakening was kind of a surprise hit in the West and I wouldn't be surprised if publishers were looking for more fantasy SRPGs or the next FE. While Langrisser is somewhat of a different game, there's enough similarities to draw in the FE crowd. Maybe Atlus will pick this up? Otherwise, I'd love to see a re-release of some of the previous games. Doubt it'll happen, though.

That reminds me, wasn't there some character in Awakening that was like a thousand-year old goddess who "decided" to appear in human form as a little girl, lol. But yeah, totally agree. Satoshi Urushihara's designs in the old games looked pretty skimpy too, but at least they looked like grown women (mostly). But these new designs? I don't know if I should play this in public.

Secret's safe with me, Dice.  In all seriousness, though, I do like the guy's art.  He has a distinctive style that you can easily pick out.  I'm just saying that given his track record, I wouldn't expect the modesty of a nun in the female characters.  That being said, Jessica looks disgusting.

And pubic hair, but lets not go there.

Comments about the previous guy's work aside, sadly Jessica is not the only offender of (http://i.somethingawful.com/forumsystem/emoticons/emot-wtc.gif) fashion. Even the protagonist can't seem to find actual clothing for his little sister (http://gematsu.com/2015/03/langrisser-3ds-theme-song-singer-new-character-announced) (again, fairly NSFW).


As for Awakening's artstyle/character designs, while I have a litany of grievances with Kozaki's character designs (Nowi, 'breast' plates, so many crotch windows, mini-skirts and bizarre pants(?) among other things), his designs for FEif look significantly better across the board (though the crotch windows don't seem to have toned down at all and now there's boob straps, at least there are fewer toilet bowls and jetpacks).
Title: Re: Langrisser: Reincarnation coming Stateside?
Post by: Dincrest on April 09, 2015, 03:25:39 PM
Mayhaps we'll see some Bravely Default style modesty modifications?  Personally, I felt that girl's more modest booty shorts looked 10x better than the string bikini bottom.  (Insert Spongebob pun here).

Title: Re: Langrisser: Reincarnation coming Stateside?
Post by: Aeolus on July 24, 2015, 05:05:40 AM
Welp. Just checked a stream of this and my god was that player really fucking bad at strategy games (the game wasn't that great either, but I'll get there in a moment). Like he just flat out sucked. The best moment of the stream was watching his shock and confusion translated in-game at the sudden and almost inexplicable change of the main character's mount (made even more amazing due to this not even being the first promotion he reached, it was just the first one he noticed). And of course, there's no way for me to tell what kind of secrets or path splits were involved with this game due to the guy's single-mindedness and piss poor management (he literally ended the game on three named characters since they were the only ones still usable by that point; by the time he even tried to salvage anybody they were already cannon fodder at best).

That said though, yeah. If the screenshots of the battle sequences weren't indicative enough, this game was not well made. It really suffers from trying to be like Der Langrisser, but whiffing on certain critical aspects (like good map design for the brand new maps or having any sort of personality) and bringing nothing worthwhile to the table (the character designs were weak, instead of midbattle convos that brought personality to the characters you had a talk menu during the intermissions and you could only talk to three characters at time and they were very low effort themselves (and the reward is being able to get a really low effort/tacky CG of said character wearing debatably less than their normal attire), the writing seemed weak (unfortunately the steaming streamer only played the light route which by necessity is the most dull and boring route in the game), there's like two cutscenes in the entire game and combined wouldn't last 30 seconds (and are incredibly lame), the character portraits were entirely static (further diminishing the weak character designs), and there seemed to be a complete dearth of secrets, side missions or special victory conditions (beyond what was straight up lifted from Der itself)).

The saddest part though was that the stuff that was actually legitimately good (i.e. the music, the concept of having a meaningful choice in sides and the maps that weren't just static rout maps) are the things that were literally straight up taken from Der Langrisser. With that said though, not everything that was taken straight from the source was actually good for the game like the balance issues (though having the gaming skill of a gorilla doesn't help matters on that end either), or the Genesis/SuperNES era system limitations/lack of quality of life improvements or OG DS era graphics.

My tl;dr is that if this game actually came out here someday (and if it does, I won't be surprised if it does so with a slipshod translation), I might pick it up during a sale, but I wouldn't pay full price for this thing as this is basically Shadow Dragon all over again (but worse as Shadow Dragon actually added some legit mechanics that the series has been using since). It also really doesn't help matters that it came out in Japan in the wake of FE:Fates which has practically set a brand new benchmark for the genre at this point.

So to answer the main question of the thread,

http://gematsu.com/2015/11/langrisser-reincarnation-tensei-coming-north-america-spring-2016

yes. Its coming stateside (http://fi.somethingawful.com/images/smilies/emot-geno.gif)

I suppose its not that surprising to see Aksys localizing this one, I doubt that even NISA would've dared to touch this. Hopefully they'll sensor the crap out of the character designs (or better yet, straight up replace them).

This is like that 'game' where wearing clothes is slutty so people wear almost nothing.

Yeah, I saw that go by the other day. Wasn't aware that they also brought back hidden items, but I kinda assumed they did because they were badly ripping off everything else from Der Langrisser.

That said, that article is pretty much in line with what I saw during that one live stream I saw. This game is almost Lunar: Dragon Song levels of bad (at least Re:Incarnation Resurrection had some kind of base game to build off of (and a good one at that) rather than L:DS's random/meaningless bullshit).

Now I'm REALLY curious to see how Aksys handles the localization, given that the game seems to have more deep rooted problems than just character art verging on child porn.  All those complaints about the UI sound like my worst nightmare since I've complained about clunky menu layouts in my reviews of many games lately.  What happened to the good ol' days when interfaces were ergonomically designed and user-friendly?  I still can't get over that the player and enemy units on the touch screen map are all the same color.  That takes the cake for me.

The last Langrisser game that achieved critical acclaim was Langrisser 5 for the Saturn in 1997. After that, the original team migrated over to Atlus to create the Growlanser series, and later lend a hand on Devil Survivor 1&2, while Masaya outsourced Langrisser to a company called Santa Entertainment who went on to make a bad Dragon Force clone with the license for the Dreamcast. So uhh, I guess play the Atlus games if you're looking for a really great follow-up? Growlanser IV Wayfarer of Time on PSP is pretty excellent.

But really, total lol at Reincarnation. "Seek the legendary sword! The Langrisser? Nope, the Excalibur!" WAT

It truly is mind boggling how they managed to make a game that looks and plays this much worse than even the first Langrisser game.

There's mediocre or bad revivals like Thi4f and Turok, but things like this game is in another category of its own alongside Turtles in Time Reshelled and Bomberman Act Zero.

Don't forget the attempt Masaya made to make a Langrisser MMO. It never even got off the ground.

At least the Langrisser not being around would make sense if this game wasn't taking a massive dump over the rest of the series' lore (since it departed for its home planet at the end of Der's Good Path).

Title: Re: Langrisser: Reincarnation coming Stateside?
Post by: Aeolus on May 03, 2016, 01:44:28 AM
Siliconera's been shilling this one hard. I've yet to see them post even a single negative thing about this that wasn't immediately brushed under the rug. Not the really budget feel, nor the clumsy interface, nor the awful balance, nor the lousy AI, nor the weak plot, nor even the incredibly questionable character designs. Only the parts that were lifted straight up from the older games are any good (and the music as they got the original composer back for the game, as the only original staff member on board).

Yet I'm still tempted to give this a try anyways because unfortunately, much of my experience with the game came from a Day 1 streamer who was actually, really shitty (he kept trying to use the maid in spite of the fact that the maid fell behind and he never took the time to stop and bring her back up to speed; then again, he did get the healer enough levels to the point where she just completely steamrolled the back half without even trying since the AI just kept constantly suiciding on her and her two minions).

Though on that note, even reducing the number of minions tied to a unit might have been the single idea that was an actual improvement over the original games, except that commanders' Auras are also smaller in size and the minions stats are complete garbage without said Auras, and now they don't even have sheer attrition to fall back on as a strategy. Also this is where the enemy AI fails since a unit's commander will always go first and either win the fight outright, get crippled or killed against an enemy unit since they can't hang back and have their minions do the dirty work from under their command Aura, and if a commander goes down, the entire unit goes up in smoke regardless to the presence or state of the minions (and minions are worth Exp which is of limited quantity in this game).

The game's only saving grace appears to be the music. The NeoGAF thread is full of giant red flags. It just saddens me that the devs did this to Langrisser, and that Aksys thought it was worth publishing.

And Siliconera shilling is nothing new. Should've seen how hard they were pushing that damn Unsung Story KS.

Yep, I'm less worried about the style and more just about the general gameplay and such... it seems like they were shaking things up on that direction in a bit of weird way.

It doesn't help also that going forward Langrisser Schwarz appears to be vaporware, I guess that just makes me even more curious. Like, it's an official release of Langrisser stateside, don't know, felt like maybe they had some enthusiasm behind the project but it's a pretty obscure series and stuff like that.

My problem is that some of those 'quirks' involved mostly naked lolis.

That kind of crap soured me on otherwise not-terrible things like Nanoha. Just ask Annubis.

Also I preferred Urushihara's semi-outlandish/semi-ridiculous half/two-thirds-naked designs to Reincarnation Resurrection's "How to Draw Manga: Half/Two-Thirds-Naked Females Edition" style.
