Ever Oasis (3DS exclusive RPG from maker of Secret of Mana)
« on: September 02, 2016, 10:29:50 AM »
Ok so, I didn't see a thread on this, maybe because of lack of enthusiasim, but yeah basically the mana series is one of my favorite JRPG series (or ARPG series, if you will)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ever_Oasis

It was announced some time ago but they referenced it again in the recent Nintendo Direct, it looks really cute exactly like all the other Mana games.



So yeah, I guess I'm kind of excited.

I think it looks super neat, to be honest. Excited for new 3DS RPGs and this one has a promising pedigree.

Yeah I've been looking at all of these 3DS (and some Vita) RPGs, and this is the one I want, basically.

Going to be awhile though.

We didn't have a thread because it was announced during E3, so it got mixed in with that discussion. I agree that it looks pretty neat. I'm still waiting for a new trailer, though. I ain't sitting through 30+ minutes of game footage I could care less about...

Oh man I forgot about this title! Looks really promising, as Secret of Mana was one of my first rpgs growing up. That game actually taught some basic rules of rpgs like leveling up, buying new equipment to increase defense, item conservation and most important of all, grinding.

And this game is being made by the Zelda Tri Force heroes team, so combat will be silky smooth.

Ah yeah! Glad you think I mean I think so and I think people in the video were pointing out the style and stuff it looks like a 3D version of Secret of Mana with other bits from other mana games thrown in (like the oasis from Sword of Mana)

They haven't announced the composer yet, I wonder if it will be Kikuta or Ito

But yeah either way I'm pretty excited, cool to see what Ishii actually looks like too IMO (never seen him before)

While I'm here again here is a 20th Anniversary Medley of Mana music which has those two present, pretty cool IMO

Ok so I got this game on release, but I haven't played it yet, but it's here and I hopefully will and then talk about it.

Damnit! It's out and I don't have money. :( I guess I'll download the demo and see if it's worth selling a kidney...if it's even still usable, I've been pretty hard on the poor thing...all those years of drinking nothing but sugar...

I posted about it a bit in Game Journal since I bought it to play on a plane last weekend. It is really good. Best game I've played this year, in my opinion (which Aeolus has already reminded me isn't that on point with everyone else). It feels like a cross between Animal Crossing, Zelda, and Rune Factory. I'm actually in the middle of the first "major" dungeon and it honestly feels like exploring a dungeon from Zelda because of how satisfying the puzzles are; easy, but satisfying.

I honestly wouldn't be shocked if I enjoy this more than Zelda...
