I thought the platforms were known beforehand.

MilesTeg 07-01-2014 11:12 AM

An RPG you say? Mind blown.

Blablurn 07-01-2014 11:12 AM

I actually wanted it for Android.

Seriously.

I couldn't be happier.

They will get the success they deserve!

YES.


YEEEEEEEEEEEES.

Even with a title like that, there was a 50% chance it was going to be another surfboard game.

I bet there are units you collect with different elemental alignments like Fire, Leaf, Water, Light and Dark!

Looks like an RPGmaker game.

That title logo is channeling FFIV with everything it has.

[QUOTE=Ramrock;119037428]How the mighty have fallen....[/QUOTE]

Well,as a concept developer first and foremost, his sustainability in console development lies in his ability to actually deliver high value game designs and stories.

Unfortunately, he couldn't move the needle.

Some Nobody 07-01-2014 11:18 AM

Surprising literally no one. Well, now that those hopes are fully knocked out, we can move on to something else. The "Mana game in two years", perhaps?

UltraGunner 07-01-2014 11:21 AM

Saw that shit coming a mile away. It was boarding a plane 6 states over and I saw that shit coming. It was driving to the airport from Japan and I saw that shit coming. The thought of coming over hadn't even registered in it's mind yet and I saw that shit coming.

Zalman 07-01-2014 11:22 AM

Excuse me while I hug my copy of The Last Story.

Aostia 07-01-2014 11:22 AM

Well, if I often blame softco to direct their resource into mobile and not into "proper" consoles, in this case I can't blame Mistwalker.
They are indipendent developers, who work "for hire" pitching their concepts to various publishers.
If their next game is mobile, it's because someone (GungHo I think) decided to publish it; we should blame softco like MS or Nintendo (who published their most recent works I think) to not hiring them for a console RPG.

Psycho_Mantis 07-01-2014 11:23 AM

Bwahahahaah I told you guys. Well I'm surprised Mistwalker is still making games.

cw_sasuke 07-01-2014 11:23 AM

Good - lets see what the Gooch can bring to mobile gaming, might be something nice.

CapHarlock 07-01-2014 11:23 AM

Kinda sad, I have been waiting for them to state their next game. Hoping it would be some great RPG and then I get this. Lame

HORRORSHØW 07-01-2014 11:24 AM

will try on android. still want another console game by the gooch.

Guymelef 07-01-2014 11:25 AM

Now we wait to see if it is the standard phone game crap with microtransactions everywhere or if it is a proper RPG game that happens to be on iOS/Android.

Yeah, but until we get a confirmation I would just to point out that Mistwalker in this case simply did the right choice.

Zephyx 07-01-2014 11:31 AM

Expected. Hope it's good for those who will play it.

You should put most of the blame on gamers who have mostly given up on console JRPGs. Nintendo & MS can't keep funding flops, especially with rising development costs.

REMEMBER CITADEL 07-01-2014 11:33 AM

If there will be a version in English, I might try the Android version.

mclem 07-01-2014 11:34 AM

Is there any info other than name, platform and the fact that it's an RPG? Or is that all still to come at the Expo?

Busaiku 07-01-2014 11:35 AM

I am shocked.

reptilescorpio 07-01-2014 11:36 AM

RPG? Android?

Cool! I'm happy with that :)

Yeah, that's where I usually place it. But was The Last Story even that good? I hear varying things.

*prepares for that trend to continue*

[QUOTE=1337;119038049]So much talent wasted, such a shame. That art on the left looks awesome.[/QUOTE]

How the hell can you say that at THIS point ? lol
You know next to nothing about the game, its mechanic, staff size, budget and so on.

People need to stop acting as every iOS/Android project means that said dev will never ever work on bigger projects, maybe even on consoles or PC. iOS/Android is just another revenue stream but many devs still need and can to cater to other platforms to pay their bills.

manueldelalas 07-01-2014 11:39 AM

I believe that we heard about this game a few months ago.

Not surprising at all.

I actually really liked it. It hooked me right from the start. Bit short though. And there is no denying the game could have really benefited from a more powerful console.

zerokoolpsx 07-01-2014 11:41 AM

Not even mad. Will try it out when it comes over here.

Sir_Crocodile 07-01-2014 11:45 AM

As long as it's a real, chunky jrpg that I pay for once and not some f2p garbage with dungeons and characters behind paywalls I'm happy with it being on android.

Muchi Muchi Pink 07-01-2014 11:46 AM

Aren't they working on several projects? Hope one is a bigger project though. I blame japanese gamers.

Cheebo 07-01-2014 11:48 AM

[QUOTE=Ramrock;119037428]How the mighty have fallen....[/QUOTE]

Doing a 3DS or Vita game would be "fallen" far more than doing a iOS/Android game. iOS/Android are way bigger platforms who sell a ton more games in both $$ and in quantity than any other handheld could dream of.

People need to stop acting like iOS/Android are some how lower. The other handhelds, hell the CONSOLES wish they could have the kind of gaming revenue as iOS/Android brings in. iOS/Android is a major element of the gaming industry that would be far worse shape right now without it.

I mean making games on the most successful gaming platforms in the industry today or making hardcore gamers on a message board happy? I mean it's silly to assume most developers would pick the later. Especially small ones like Mistwalker.

random25 07-01-2014 11:48 AM

If it ain't f2p cashgrab like Final Fantasy All the Bravest or what the hell it's called, I'm ok with that.

Hopefully they'll decide to port it on handhelds in the near future.

The Famitsu link is basically just a tease for the article in the magazine and the Japan Expo reveal. Nothing about the game is detailed.

Its his first essential RPG, which is what i care about when it comes to the Gooch.

No, this is not ballin.

It compares unfavorably when associated with fellow OP Rainfall game Xenoblade, which had more ambition, scope, wilder plot twists, vibrant use of color to build an awe-inspiring dreamworld, and without various performance drops. Xenoblade is just a better built game.

... But I liked The Last Story better anyway. The gameplay did interesting new things interacting with the squad, the cinematic puzzle boss battles were memorable set pieces, the sidequests were weightier then MMORPG fetch quests (occasionally consisting of full chapters in themselves), and a swift-paced 25-30 hr adventure.
And the outfits are more stylish and have better customization, this is super important.

Izuna 07-01-2014 11:57 AM

No Windows Phone, so I won't be playing it.
