19  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Namco Bandai trademarks Tales of Xillia in Europe on: March 23, 2012, 07:03:02 AM
Tales of Graces f has been out in North America for about a week and it appears Namco Bandai already has plans to localize the next game in the series. Siliconera found a trademark for Tales of Xillia in Europe’s trademark database. Yes, we realize Tales of Graces f isn’t available in PAL territories.

Tales of Xillia came out for PlayStation 3 last year in Japan. The game follows two lead characters, doctor-in-training Jude Mathis and spirit user Milla Maxwell, created by Tales artists Kosuke Fujishima and Mutsumi Inomata. Namco Bandai said they are looking to bring over more Tales titles beyond Graces f and Abyss, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed that this is more than a protective trademark.

21  Media / General Games / Kara - Quantic Dream's (Heavy Rain) newest tech demo on: March 10, 2012, 08:18:02 AM

I'm guessing this tech demo is more-or-less related to their next game.

Impressive presentation I say, the whole thing tugged my heart a bit.

I just platinumed the game and I really seem to like it... Except for the ending, a number of ultra-cheesy dialogues, the lower image quality, and reused enemies. The game is fun and the story is serviceable for me.

I find Noel to be a good character actually, and his theme song is fantastic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcLetgnrcIo
23  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Tokitowa - Time and Eternity (third person 2D/3D RPG, imageepoch, PS3) announced on: January 18, 2012, 06:48:21 PM

More details on Tokitowa have surfaced from this week's issue of Weekly Famitsu via our usual source, Sokuho@Hokanko.

As detailed earlier, Tokitowa, which can be translated to English as "Time and Eternity," is a PS3 RPG that's being published by Namco Bandai Games and developed by Imageepoch and animation studio Satelight. The game is produced by Kay Hirono and Kensuke Tsukanaka, has character designs from Vofan and music from Yuzo Koshiro.

The game is set in Kamuza Kingdom, a nation formed when a prince, known as the Knight King, and a magic wielding princess married. The castle town floats on the water (I'm not sure if this means it's on an island or if it's actually floating on the water like a ship).

You play as that prince whose marriage formed the Kingdom. You're 18 years old, and even though you're married, you still haven't had your first kiss. The prince is meant to be named by the player, although he does have a voice actor, Tsubasa Yonaga.

The princess's name is Toki. Toki is 16 years old and always keeps Drake, her blue colored dragon-like pet, at her side. Toki is voiced by Kana Hanazawa.

In this image from the game's teaser site, Toki is the second girl from the left.
One of the big early talking points for the game appears to be its animation system. The game uses hand drawn 2D animation for main characters and enemies during movement throughout the world and in battle. This isn't an approximation of hand drawn artwork using cell shading -- it's actual hand drawn art. Backgrounds and other areas appear to be 3D.

Outside of these story and character details, Famitsu scored commentary from the various staff members along with Imageepoch CEO Ryoei Mikage. Here's what they had to say:

Kay Hirono (Producer, Namco Bandai)
The project has been in development for over two years. Hirono promises a completely new title that is full of new experiments.
Ryoei Mikage (CEO, Imageepoch)
Mikage said that he created this project plan long ago when he thought that he wanted to show 2D anime as is on a game system. The systems at the time were incapable of pulling this off. To get it to work on the PS3, they had to do many trials.
Vofan (Character Concept)
Vofan is from Taiwan, but loves Japanese games and anime. He started character design for the game in 2012. The themes for the game are "Love" and "Time."
Yuzo Koshiro (Sound Composer)
Yuzo says that when he was first shown the design doc, he was drawn to the game by Vofan's characters. The background art is also beautiful, he said. This is serving as inspiration for his composition.

Development on Tokitowa is currently 45%. In a blurb next to the percentage, a Namco Bandai PR person refers to the game as "the world's first HD animation RPG."

From what I've completed, top (best) to bottom (worst):


I don't hold much nostalgic love for IV and VI but I think they're solid games.
25  Media / General Games / Re: Resident Evil Revival Selection on: September 24, 2011, 04:51:05 AM
Resident Evil 4 is the best in my opinion and here's why....

Resident Evil 4 is the best action/horror/shooter game I've ever played. Sure it's not old RE but it's still awesome as balls. Not to mention Ada and Leon are badass.

So I guess Square Enix wants to apologize to their fans for "trolling" :P
