Honestly, seems like industry as whole were down the last couple quarters going by sales trends , so JRPGs  aren't alone here. Perhaps JRPGs maybe able catch break once this lengthy console is over.

True, but that's game industry for you, what else a developer is going to say about his/her game? At least he didn't it's going to be the best " FF " ever or something.
19  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: October 05, 2012, 05:12:47 PM
Some of you guys are jumping on that statement tad too much. He's basically saying he's trying to make Lightning Return best game it can. Last time I checked there was nothing wrong with that. Of course it will be up to fans and reviewers to judge how really "polished" when it is released, but there is hardly anything offensive there.

Famitsu - 10/9/9/10 = 38/40, not bad for what is essentially a new IP.

I'm a bit worried about the multiple turn thing because it seems to go against the goal of fast gameplay. Look at the youtubes and you'll see people in the menus for near 30 seconds even when all they're doing is having everyone attack four times each.

That's only because the videos posted here are of players in low-levels (and Job Levels) without much in the way of abilities aside from attack. It's not necessary to use 3BP with all characters in normal encounters if you have strong AoEs or take advantage of elemental weaknessess that enemies have. I've seen higher level Japanese players only choose two actions to wipe out enemy parties. It's ultimately to the player on how he/she uses the tools given to them that determine battle efficiency and length.

From what i can make out with my crappy Japanese the trains name is "Prometheus".

@NicoNico: Who thought it was a good idea to have comments zoom buy on the screen while you're watching the video? And why doesn't the "turn off comments" button work for me?

It seems like the person who recorded did it with comments on.  -_-


BTW, TGS trailer

Bravely Default was featured in Iwata Ask's yesterday, and cleared up somethings and spoke about the direction and concept of the game. This a summarized version, but there is pretty good info all round.

Quote
Translations of Iwata Asks. Tried to focus on stuff we didn't know.

-The first RPG Asano (white shirt) ever passed was FF3. Ironically, he was in charge of the FF3 remake on the DS. Also worked on Four Warriors of Light and the FF4 remake.
- Hayashi (Mages) worked on the scenario. Used to work at KID. Worked on the scenario for Stein's Gate.
-Asano first said to Hayashi he wanted him to create characters you could fall in love with.
-The 'base' idea of the game was four characters who had changable jobs.
-They focused on creating characters who had good interactions with each other, and a balance of personalities and how to show the drama between them and the "bad guys".
-The main character's motivation is to restore her hometown.
-For example, say it takes 1,000 hours to restore it with one person, 500 with two, 250 with four and so on, where the additional villagers are collected through StreetPass. The main character is the one who bears the communication functions.
-One of the heroines is the daughter of bad characters.
-The notebook held by Ringabel can be read by the player at any time. It contains information on the future.
-The game (scenario, characters) has a nostalgic feeling of older style RPGs.
-Abi-Link system; can use friends higher-leveled character's abilities for a time.
-Can connect the game online for those living in regions where StreetPasses are uncommon.
-Core-concept: "A single player RPG that you play together"
-Quests, like item collections, don't make up the main part of the game, like the 5th demo.
-Order of learning abilities is different too.
-Changing the game based on feedback from the demo was based on seeing how social games are improved on after release with feedback from players.
-Team worked hard to increase the battle speed, but Asano recognises it will still not please everyone.
-Asano feels the pressure because of the expectations with this being a SE RPG.
-No problems picking the battle system up for FF or DQ fans.
-Been in-dev (since planning) for about 2 years.

For those who don't have an account use this:

Copy the video link then paste into the search bar in that site and you're set. Enjoy!

BTW, something that was not mentioned:
-Ifirit and Shiva (or at least in her case heavily redesigned) seem to have been replaced by Doomtrain and two new summons.

Damn this game oozing a shitload of charm. :D

EDIT: Forgot to say this, but the video may take a little while to load.

EDIT2: Seems like the video was taken down. =/

EDIT3: Seems to be working again, weird.

A Niconico Broadcast just finished awhile and here is a summary of the most important things.

-Some bosses have huge amounts of HP



FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

I see that Squeenix still can't be bothered to figure out how difficulty works in an RPG.

It's pretty normal in an RPG that a few bosses will have high HP, doesn't mean they are just a sandbag of numbers or that it says much about the general balance of the game. From all the demos, impressions I've seen and read most Bosses in this game regardless of HP are pretty challenging thanks to how the battle system works.

Plus the Producer of this game was one behind FFIV DS most challenging but fair fights so, I'm not worried about difficulty here.

A Niconico Broadcast just finished awhile and here is a summary of the most important things.

-Effects of finishing moves (which can be customized) stack
-Each character has a unique theme which plays after using a finishing move

-Abilities gained via abilink are less powerful and require higher cost
-"Fear" status ailment prevents Braving and Defaulting
-Some bosses have huge amounts of HP
-Dark Knight job shown, looks like FF4 Dark Knight Cecil

I thought this was an action RPG for second when the protagonist attacked first enemies.

Anyway, looking pretty good. Probably the best looking Atlus title so far, dethroning Catherine and P4. It also seems like time-traveling is definitely involved and will likely be intertwined with both the plot and gameplay.

Crap, now I'm triple posting, but whatever. This needed to be shared.

Someone ripped tracks from the demos and has uploaded them online. Revo (and Sound Horizon) is not a composer I'm familar with, but after hearing these I can see why he's popular. Fantastic stuff all around.

Track names are unofficial BTW.
