Not exactly that infatuated with the JRPG genre but, I must say, that art-style is really enticing. I hope this isn't too 'deep' in terms of systems as I'd love to get in on this if it turns out good.

So it really does seem to be SaGa-inspired. I had a feeling the look of the combat when it was first announced wasn't a coincidence.

Really looking forward to trying the demo.

They did describe the battles as "simple pick up and play," so it probably won't be anything too crazy.

Ah, I must have missed that. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this, then. Hope the game as a whole is as good as its graphics and music.

Oh yeah, the music is easy to overlook because of the visuals, but it sounds gorgeous.

If you search for "demo" you'll find all the games that have them.

Is the demo only going to be up on the Jpn shop, or is the US included also? I don't recall this even being announced for a western release yet.

WHERE IS THE DEMO


btw when they put the survey up, make sure to fill it out. They put out a couple of demos for Bravely Default before release and they really took player feedback into account. That game really improved dramatically in terms of combat and stuff.

Out of curiosity, what changed with Bravely Default? I only got around to playing it long after release, and wasn't following it back when it was a demo.

there's some change from the 5 demo to vanilla version, but the major change is from vanilla to the version that western gets. stuff like 4x battle speed etc.

I'm playing as a princess turned sex worker out to avenge her dead father.

Holy shit.

Also, the VA is very good somehow which is surprising.

Very first impression (handheld):

Music is great
Aesthetic is incredible; the look really works
Gorgeous map in the menu
Character sprites look a little soft/blurry and too small
Fonts seem too small as well
English VO is not good
Can't tell if this is 30fps... or lower

Hopefully they zoom things in just a touch, sharpen it up, bump it up to 60fps, etc. Still lots of time. Will put more time into it later for gameplay impressions.

Playing as Primrose (of course). Amiibo please.

Wow. I had a feeling they were gonna break from traditional character archetypes. That's good to hear.

???? So far the only VA I'd say is not so great is Philip (Playing Olberic). I'd go as far to say that it's great.
