If I had to get all arm-chair economist on this game and guess the reasons for why this game did so poorly in Japan, I'd say:

- Really poor timing due to the most recent tax rate hike inflating costs.
- And I mean REALLY poor timing since people who might have picked this up, tapped themselves out for the near future trying to get the most out of the previous tax rate before the hike.
- The fact that it was released for so many platforms has probably divided the fanbase and thus causing total sales per console to be divided too heavily.
- That it was targeting a niche audience to begin with.
- That the developer isn't a company usually associated with SRPGs, which might lead to several potential customers wanting to 'wait and see'.
- Not enough Moe Pedo Bait Waifu Wars CCG.

Either way, hopefully it'll be a self contained story because there's now a zero percent chance of this ever getting a sequel.

It could still get a sequel, if the localized version does well, seeing as Kadokawa makes some money back from licensing fees, not to mention the Zero Escape games have flopped so far in Japan, although they likely have lower budgets than this.

Just don't go all raving an ranting about how reviewers know nothing and your opinion is fact. That's annoying.

but it is fact

I guess it may be a thing.

This seems like it deserves its own thread.

The movement is definitely reminiscent of Valkyria Chronicles. It's surprising to me that a game that revolutionized the turn-based strategy genre like VC seemingly had so little effect on the genre. It often seems to me that, while new games in longstanding SRPG series are still fun, that they are still so dependent on many of their legacy systems and fearful of branching out.

VC mostly built upon Sakura Taisen and added light third person shooter elements.

Not necessarily RPG, but Rockstar titles are great sandbox titles with (perhaps?) RPG-ish elements (or at least I like it, maybe you will too?).  Red Dead Redemption is a really great game.

I got weirdly hooked to Kingdoms of Amalur and Dragon Age is a lot of fun too.

+1 Amalur, it's not especially strategic iirc and narrative seems competent, but it has a damn good class system with fluid combat.

Weird that it was toned down, but FF10-2 stayed intact (at least with Rikku's underage sex appeal) iirc although it probably had something to do with a change of staff.

And also notice the mention of PSP in the last paragraph, although it may just be referring to Tits SC.

Er, even if it wasn't I'm not sure how that's related to this.

Um, it wasn't, it was just pointing something out.

Okay, that makes more sense. Also noticed Wikipedia didn't have a source for Shinovi Versus, so I guess I should've known better than to trust it.

I had a similar issue with it but with Zeno Clash supposedly being a fighting game but it's an FPS/beat em up.

And dunno if it was posted someplace else but someone at Marvelous' forums pointed this out:
The silhouette in the left side of the image in this article matches up to this character and Marvelous even did something similar to promote SV.
And also notice the mention of PSP in the last paragraph, although it may just be referring to Tits SC.
Then in the bottom left is maybe this character.
No idea about the big one on the right, but looks like he(?) has glasses.

I wonder if we should be sensing a theme with Caim in D1 losing his voice and Mikhail also having a voice issue both in about 20 minutes after the game starts.

Scrooged is an old favourite

This times a billion, that movie is criminally underrated.
favorite moments are 1, 2, 6, 8 and the toaster scene
a playlist

And still gotta watch the rest of Love Actually but this scene seems like it goes under the radar

The combo system from SH2 is ridiculously satisfying used on bosses, like deathblow combos from Xenogears but refined.
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: December 10, 2013, 12:24:40 AM
I'm starting to think the only good voice in Bravely Default is Ringabel. Edea isn't too bad, but Tiz and Agnes are BLEH.

Guess it's a matter of taste, I really like Agnes' voice.

I want to support this game. I don't want to support MTs.

I'm torn.

Unless you're completely new to games (unlikely) and can't beat the game on its easiest setting then you should be able to avoid them, and even then you could put the game in sleep mode.
