Kizuna in May, Arc Rise in June. Hope they don't bomb.


Depends on what you mean by bomb.
New IPs by small companies are certainly not going to light the sales charts on fire...

Now that just looks goofy

Gotta admit being a giant that towers over trees is pretty amusing though

there are 2 new videos in the gallery section of the official site, can someone youtube them?

i noticed two things
- the black dragon knight is another Bright's power. didn't expect that, i thought that knight was an evil guy's power opposed to the white knight..
- first time in a jrpg where the characters talk and see them talking while fighting? dunno, it's just a nice addition imho, hoping they won't say everytime the same phrases in a rogue galaxy style

considering rising star games delayed rune factory frontier from march to october, and muramasa from november to march 2010, i'd just have to hope to play arc rise before summer 2010 <.<

Both Tales of the Abyss and Tales of Vesperia have this 'addition' [I don't remember if Symphonia has it]... the dialogue is specially cool during story related bosses :D ...

yeah but the characters don't change their expressions and move their mouth (at least not in abyss, dunno about vesperia), while here yes :D

With the Tales games, the last thing you need to pay attention is the characters faces while battling :p [I see your point though]...

There are four High Quality scans out in the wild!

By the way, why on Earth would the game have gone gold (as duckroll said he read) when the game's not out until June? Couldn't imageepoch open the game back up to polish it further in the meantime? Seems like a total waste! :'( But I suppose they're too busy on other projects to do so. This is like Rare who had Pocket Paradise in the back burner, finished, for months for some odd reason before finally releasing it.

Wow, really nice.
Also, seems there will be an arena type thing in the game, and it also uses real time cutscenes but also the anime 2D ones.

Yeah thats the first thing I saw. This game keeps making good impressions on me. I'm sure it will be the standard fare turn based jrpg but I personally haven't had much experience with any thing from the past 2 generations like it.

I'm not sure if it was confirmed yet but the screenshots show that you can have up to four characters in your party at once.

Yay.

Some of the images make the game look like it could be on the DS or something.

I hope your talking about the character portraits during dialog.

Says who. Are you basing that on the space at the top of the screen that could fit another portrait? I highly doubt it based on that, since the menus and everything have to be designed to also fit on a 4:3 screen. That's probably just dead space.

Unless you're basing it on some of the moonspeak.

THOUGH, it pretty clearly says "guest" next to the fourth character there. It'll probably be a 3-person party with occasional fourth guests that may or may not be controllable.

Yeah pretty sure its been stated a few times that its 3 character parties. So this is probably true.
