I'm kind of pumped for Exist Archive, tbh. It looks interesting and holy crud we're getting a Vita game for once.

Hmm, yeah.  Definitely prefer the older artwork.  She's barely holding her sword and the flimsy feathers in her helmet look too dainty compared to the ones much more "stuck" in the helmet before. 

PSX artwork struck the balance between warrior and elegance much better, the new art just goes for 'pretty':


I think the only real thing I like about the new art is she grew out those dorky bangs.

Obviously, in the new art, she had a lot more feathers in her helmet but they are all in the process of falling out onto the ground.

And now I'm never going to unsee that dumb swath of hair between her eyes.  I LOATHE that on Azura in Fire Emblem Fates, and now I have to deal with it on Lenneth.  Aye yai yai....

Lol, you'd laugh at this hilarious and yet related article on Kotaku today:

Without even reading the article: I thought Ran's hair was pretty obvious: her long bangs are swept to the side late 80s/early 90s style. Granted, the whole thing escalated as the artstyle became even more stylised and then the anime fucked it up royally, but yeah, there is an explanation.

After reading the article: yep, I knew I was right!

(I might have 80 or so volumes of Detektiv Conan manga on my bookshelves.)

I see 'action points' with a timer next to it. I see a gacha system. That does not bode well.

Yup, it's a mobile game.  In that it just kinda looks like a cheap version of what's come before.
I mean, no big loss, I'm sure it's good fun for handheld title (I'd probably play it if it was released here) and it's great that VP is alive and well still after tri-Ace went through some sticky times.

It looks good to me, personally. The animations and stuff look even smoother than perhaps earlier VP games. .
