Alliance Ailve for 3DS (maker of Suikoden involved)
« on: November 23, 2016, 02:35:36 PM »
So I guess maybe a thread about this?

I kind of think of Suikoden in general as like the grand master of JRPGs in many ways, or rather the series as a whole, even 4 and 5 which have often been much maligned. I don't think 4 (or 5 for that matter) reached the heights of the first 3 but there ya go.

I guess I just don't know what to expect from this, but honestly it does look kinda fun so here's the trailer and all.

And the gameplay teaser which is sort of the same deal (other trailer shows gameplay)

So people are commenting oh my god Chibi should be yes goddess chibi because some of those characters look pretty cool to me.

Like every other JRPG not named FFXV though there aren't a lot of details right now because it's coming in the future.

Hmmm.

It looks generic to me. Nothing here is exciting me other than the prospect of the plot being awesome like Suikoden.

I dunno. Opinion reserved.

I posted about this in the Legend of Legacy thread as this was being made by the same team (plus and minus a few star players, i.e. Suikoden's scenario planner over SaGa's scenario planner).

It should be noted that the devs tend to make budget JRPGs (though not nearly to the extent that Kemco craps them out) so they don't look too flashy on the surface. That being said, LoL was pretty lackluster due to having no real plot and requiring to play through it 7 times to get everything. And with that being said, it was the developer's best selling game to date so with the tools in place and some experience under their belts, this game might yet surprise us.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

If you're expecting Suikoden, it's probably best not to.

I'm hoping for the best here. Not Suikoden-Best, mind you, but I'd certainly like to see this team go at least a couple steps beyond what I saw in Legend of Legacy...

I said that the Furyu game I'm most interested in is Caligula, since that's stylistically more my thing.  But I worry that it will be another case of squandered potential (as Legend of Legacy was) and/or another blatant Persona ripoff like Mind Zero was.

I half-forgot I had Mind Zero. So...thanks, Dinc!

I'd kill for a true Suikoden sequel (none of the "infinite universe" crap like in Tierkreis).
