So Sony did a big press conference where we got to learn a lot of stuff that us JRPG gamers would like. However, we mostly got teaser trailers so I’ll save you the trouble of having to find 500 posts that just say “this games a thing” and put them all together with quick fears or hopes.
So the leaked Disgaea 5 image was real. As of now we are to believe the game will be ps4 exclusive although this wouldn’t be the first time a company said “Cough and in previous gens too,” Digaea 5 is intended to appeal to a wider audience (I wrote about why that’s a bad thing briefly here). I’m worried that the game will lose it’s charm by broadening and while Disgaea 5 may sell better the future of the series from that point could go way down hill. Disgaea already is NIS’s most constantly good series I don’t think they should mess with the tone of the games but i’ll pass on judging the game until it release.
Luminous Arc Infinity was announced for the Vita. Luminous Arc one was one of my favorite DS games and while I never beat 2 I was upset to find that Luminous Arc 3 never made it to the states. This game could face the same fate and it’s always just slightly jarring when a game is know for being exclusive to one company and jumps to another. Still the Vita needs more games so good that they are getting one.
Persona 5 got it’s first real teaser trailer showing off super pretty boy MC who looked really sad at all the people. Maybe he is sad because the game got pushed back to 2015. The game will also be on ps4 so good news for people who sold their ps3 towards a ps4. The MC is pretty cute, but this says almost nothing about the actual game. I am assuming this is meant to show that everyone is a slave to society stuck in uniforms as they go from one place to another or something. At the end we had some blue flames as tease to actual stuff happening but apparently that wasn’t worth showing at this point.
Just like Nintendo the Vita is getting custom themes. Psp had hacked themes that were amazing for a while so I’m shocked this wasn’t already a thing on the vita.
Resident Evil Revolutions 2 got officially announced with a really odd artsy teaser trailer. They say the game will not feature Jill or Chris but instead brand new characters. The games coming world wide and capcom said they will share new details soon.
Gundam is getting a ps4 game but that’s no shock because gundam gets games on all sony systems. We know nothing about it other then it comes out 2015.
Dragon Quest heroes was announced for the playstation 4 and 3 with a trailer that showed cool CGI and actual gameplay! It’s a cross over with Omega Force so the game will be a more or less Dragon Quest Warriors and features characters from across the series history slashing up Dragon Quest monsters. The game will see Japanese release spring 2015 so if this excites you get ready to import because I square hates us. The game looks really cool and I can’t wait to get even more details.
Touhou is getting a ps4 game so yay for fans of Touhou. We have almost no details but that’s because this game is going to be crafted by fans. To what degrees i’m not sure but players will be able to make things and share them. Fushigi no Gensokyo 3, The Genius of Sappheiros, and Touhou Sky Arena Matsuri will be playable games but more will come.
Well that’s everything I really thought was worth bringing up but their is even more news floating around. It looks like 2016 or late 15 will be a solid time to pick up a ps4. A lot of games are still ps3 ps4 so i’ll be holding back until their is at least 4 titles I feel are a most buy or if for some reason I find a ps4 for dirt cheap.
