    It's got potential, but it'll all come down to the story telling. Do they take the "whatever the endless amount of focus groups tells us and promotes future games" approach, or will they try and craft something meaningful and engaging? One can dream.

    That DMC anime was mediocre, not bad. Certainly nicer than most of the trash waifu shit we got running around.

    There is a tremendous amount of negativity in this thread.

    The AC series have a very wide lore and I honestly think someone could make a good serie out of this material.

    Nobody wanted this... Okay.. Maybe if they hired those people who did Aeon Flux and that Alexander the Great animation thing and just let those people go crazy with it, it might be okay... But we won't get that will we? This will just be some watered down re-telling of the plot of the games, providing no new insight on the whole overarching Templar thing. This will be as entirely meaningless to the series as AC:Unity was, and end up being just as much of a shitty disappointment as the movie was. No, that's still probably not very positive, but really, how good could this ever be?

    They can't shine new light on the whole meta plot without killing potential for future games.
    They can't do side stories within the same universe without potentially using up storylines for their future games (how many of these super secret assassins can they have within any period of time before everyone is an assassin?)
    It's 'anime', written by a group of French Canadians and produced by this guy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adi_Shankar... That just doesn't work on a fundamental level.

    I hate this kind of news, it's always the same thing : people just ranting about how bad is milking the franchise, about how they're sellouts, how it's going to suck, etc... And on the other side, there's people just ranting as much, telling them they don't understand business, or telling them to wait for the actual release before judging. Yet you can find many examples defending both sides, with good arguments, so who's right?

    In my humble opinion, nobody is right or wrong, it's opinions, it's subjective. As long as the quality is there they can do whatever they want. Plus if I don't like it I'm just going to not watch it, period.

    I love this community because honestly that's one of the few places on the internet where I can have really cool discussions with very smart and open people, but every now and then there's a thread like that where instead of having real arguments, people just throw their opinion like it's Gospel truth...

    Tl;dr : Keep calm and debate

    The games hasvnt been good past the ACII trilogy (and I would argue only the first two in trilogy were the good ones)

    So another game series is getting a cartoon adaptation.
    If I'm not mistaken, it's being made by American studios.

    You ARE kidding right?
    1 was good because it was somewhat fresh gameplay. From there on it went downhill hard

    Squeenix really went off the hill with FF7. Like honestly speaking. I hated FF7. The series really didn't take to 3D well, and with the series now going for action-rpg if I'm not mistaken (which is a shit genre and I don't like it). Probably the only 3D Final Fantasy that was good IMO was FF9, and that is because it felt like a traditional Final Fantasy, which is: "Here is a medieval style tale where the most advanced tech is Steam tech, magic is common and the most common monster is likely ripped off from some DND manual". Not a "gritty moody teenage anit-hero tale of romance and all that other bullshit that makes teenage girls write weird fanfiction" game.

    Sorry, just had to fuel that rage out.

    It'll probably be better than the games.
