This Spring will be piled high with RPGs, but one of the unexpected titles is the recently announced Rhapsody: Cornet's Musical Adventure. The translation of this "musical RPG" is being handled by Atlus, the company which become well-known through their translation of Red Company's Thousand Arms. The question is this:
"Do you plan to purchase Rhapsody this Spring?"
A few things to think about before making your choice. The vocal interludes in this game will be redone in English so that might be a turn-off for those who like the original Japanese songs. But don't automatically assume that English voices/singing means it'll be bad. Some hailed Thousand Arms as having some of the best English voices in an RPG. Besides, the Japanese version of this game is very difficult to find, according to a few import-savvy RPGFan editors.
It looks like a tough call for RPG fans everywhere! If you'd like to participate in this poll, head back to the main page and vote! If you would like more information on this game, see RPGFan's complete preview.
Last week's poll yielded some not-so-surprising results. It looks like our readers strongly support FFIX's journey back to the world of fantasy-based RPGs. The support for sticking to futuristic FF games was weak and even weaker was the opinion that "the FF series sucks!" There were, however, some middle-of-the-road players who have no preference on whether the next FF game is futuristic or fantasy-based. This poll has been placed in the newly-organized poll archives as will each subsequent poll for all eternity!
Now you have your mission, go vote! And if you have a better poll idea, just e-mail me!
