I felt like this game deserves a topic now that there's an actual release date (June 12!).  Sure there's the Atlus announcement topic, but most of that was talking about Growlanser anyway.

Even those Sting seems to have a reputation for doing weird stuff, I gotta say I'm looking forward to a pure SRPG from them.  Yggdra Union remains my favorite Sting game to this day.  They do strategy well.  Gungnir looks great from the screenshots that have been posted.  But I'll probably get it digitally since I plan on getting a Vita soon.

While having only dipped my toe in the lake of Yggdra and Knights, I am still super stoked about Gungnir.... I have had it pre-orderred since it was officially given its date.... I hope I can find the time to get through Yggdra and Knights before this comes out though, because my current "to play" list is massive and  I fear these maybe gems that slip by me despite being on my shelf..... Because If I am correct and Gungnir is not related to those titles in any way, than I feel it may take precedence to me before those. I absolutely adore the art style and aesthetics... major selling point for me.....

I'm looking forward to this too. It's Episode IX in the Department Heaven series, right?
I was a little iffy for a while because I couldn't figure out Yggdra Union, but I played it again recently, and it just clicked. Eh, the stories are always really interesting in Sting games.

Technically yes. However, it's actually only the 5th game. Sting are weird.

Sting is indeed weird. But I'm a huge fan of their games, so this'll be a day 1 buy for me.

Eh, it's better than the wonky numbering of the Ogre Battle games. There's four of them, and only two of them are numbered, as VII and VI. Sting seems to be at least planning to fill the numbers out.

So I found a copy of Knights in the Nightmare today, and I'll be picking up Gungnir when it comes out - but I'm missing Riviera.

Is it really crucial to play these games in order?

No, they're not really all that related.  There are some links with story (Yggdra in the PSP version of Knights in the Nightmare), but don't think you need to play all the Dept. Heaven games.

As far as I know, Riviera is the one at the end of the timeline. Riviera's final villain is the total villain of the series as a whole.

I've never been able to find Riviera, which is a drag as I'd actually like to play it regardless.

Strange that they're out of order though.

Least it's better than Tactics Ogre where episodes VI and VII exist and then no other numbered entries were made. Although, the Dept. Heaven series works much better with the messed up timeline than most because each game details a different part of a vast universe at a different time.

Riviera is on the PSN if that helps.

I believe it's the first actually, otherwise the only way their numbering schemes make any sense is if they are something like "we've had X numbers of ideas, and each installment is numbered for which idea it is". But, yeah, they're related but it matters about as much as which order you see Star Trek series or whatever, at best.

It's on the PSN, you know.  Pretty cheap too, if I recall.

Oops, that was already pointed out.  Never mind.
