Why I think a TWEWY sequel is unlikely.

Now before i get started, I would be all for a sequel for TWEWY. I would absolutely love a sequel, prequel, alternate 7 days, whatever.

BUT.
These are just my ideas. You can take them as you like.

1. My first problem with a sequel is that the first 21 days of the original game took care of most of the information in the game, especially after reading all the secret reports. So a second game would have to introduce at least a new story and or mechanics, since you already know you and your partner are dead, and you are playing to go back to the RG.

I think this can be done, but i dont know how. Unless its interesting cost to get into the game is introduced...
Mechanics worried me, but honestly, solo mix put most of these to rest... i think.

2. Sequels tend to do one of two things. Either improve on the bad parts of a game and make them way better. Think Assassains creed, NMH2, etc. Or the devs are money hungry and the sequels dont work will at all on new hardware. Or the sequels just bury the series under a pile of crap. Newer Sonics, Yoshi's island 2, etc. Somehow the iPhone made most of the fighting and pins work, but i feel kinda silly now that its the "Solo" remix and still needing a partner to survive. But thats a port/remake not a sequel. Rarely do games ever seamlessly line up with their last game, unless you are playing SMG2 lol

3. TWEWY hinges on the touch mechanics (or shitty gimmicks if im being Guildy. The original was played with two characters, on two screens simultaneously. Straight up sequel would require the 3DS for the touch screen and the 2 screens for both characters. Unless they went with the "solo" idea, TWEWY dies at the 3DS. If the "solo" idea is embraced, the Vita could utilize the large HD screen and rear touch pad.

A 3DS sequel would be amazing, But i have my concerns. None of them are airtight reasons, just concerns. Please, i would love to be proven wrong. Im not kidding.

I get what you mean, ugh... if only we had some more specific info about what SE actually are working on.
 
4. SE isnt the company they were anymore. The Square that brought us FF1-10, Chrono Trigger, etc, doesnt exist anymore.
 
I agree with you for the most part. If there happens to be a sequel, I want a new cast of characters. It's kind of meh to see characters that have completed their story come back for some bs reason.
 
G
#3 isn't a concern since the 3DS is selling great in Japan. Square has a lot of incentive to release TWEWY 2 on the system.
 
What if the game centered around a Reaper?
You, like any reaper, would understand the mechanics of the game. So there's no point trying to bring a "surprsie" about it into the game. Not to mention it could be unique playing a bad guy. They could easily go in this direction, but I doubt they would. Even if you know all the workings of the Game, if they put an entirely new cast in, I don't see why it wouldn't work out just fine.

Soulx hit #3 so I don't have to. I don't think anyone would be worried if it released exclusively on the 3DS.
Thanks to their port though, TWEWY2 is more than capable of being a vita game if they felt like it.
 
I don't think there will be one cause the game sucked total balls :(
I tried to force myself to like it three times, but you shouldn't have force yourself to like a game XD
 
[quote name='BortzANATOR' timestamp='1346617366'] No no dude its not your fault. Im just skeptical thats all. [/quote] Poorly worded sentence. I'm not 100% certain either and wish there were more concrete info about it.

That's exactly how I feel about Half-Life. Sad so many people like that game ><

hhhhnnnnnnggggggghhhh

Losing hope in GBAtemp. Half Life is a masterpiece in every sense of the word.
 
I found that there is a huge rift between people that like TWEWY and those that dont.

You either love it or hate it. Sucks.
 
If there is one, I wonder if they will use that same style of Kingdom Hearts.

Vita could possibly do the non-solo one by turning it vertical.
:unsure:

Yeah except turning it vertical would be awful.
 
I think we will get one, I don't want one I feel that it's a great game that should be a standalone title...not every game needs a damn sequel BUT this is Square Enix, if they feel it'll sell well then regardless of what the developers want they'll do a sequel even if they have to undo some of the prequel. I can even see them going the FF route and using different characters and settings and sell it on the concept and name.
