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.

I suspect that it might operate on the same principle that Radiant Historia did with its turn shuffling (i.e. you increase damage as your combo rises so shuffling everybody's turns around so that you'll have X number of turns to build the combo while occasionally spitting out a nuke to take advantage of the multiplier and wreck the opponent's health bar).


And with that said....

....here's some pictures of the guest designs and some info on the totally original, not-final fantasy summon mainstays summons that isn't in moonrunes. Doomtrain's just the fire summon and the Thunderballin' plane gets the last place name of Deus Ex (instead of pulling a name out of the mythological deities' naming hat (although if a summon comes out of this with either the names Drakengard/Drag-on Dragoon, Nier, or Cavia it will be worth it)).

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.

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

Still have that language hurdle, though that doesn't help if it gets localized only in the US (alternatively, only in Europe).

But it's not a hurdle for me :( I can read and speak Japanese. WAH.

eDIT: Yes, I'm being selfish. But it's Friday, so I get a freebie.

Well, we have no idea if that white 3DS XL will come to the US. Use this as an excuse to get one! If it's practical anyway and not absurd.

As swank as a white 3DS would be, I'm still hoping for this bad boy or something like it making it out to the US, despite the odds.

Reggie apparently said at one point "white doesn't sell".  He should try again given the iPhone 4 market for the white phones.  Buut~ I kinda sympathize; when I watch a movie, I don't like a white border -- same goes for mah gamin'.
