Isn`t this game suppose to be an Action-RPG...

I heard of it just a few weeks ago (it is already out

) and I really have to say, that I got curious...

So is it just dungeon crawling or are there any towns and something like this?

Anyone opened the rom see if there's Engrish language? LOL

Yeah, there ain't.

But the game is gorgeous, and I think if the game sees a western localization, RPG fans will go nuts for this game. So far, it's kind of like a mix of Diablo and Final Fantasy VII. The gameplay is very much like Diablo, and you even get to pick what character you want, what class they will be, and their weapon set-up. However, monsters don't seem to re-spawn the way they do in Diablo or most other RPGs, for that matter. Why like FFVII? Well, though I don't understand any of the text, the characters seem to be somewhat modeled after the characters from FFVII, and story is definitely going to be a huge, huge part of this game. It's not a mindless dungeon-crawling hack & slash, ala Dungeon Explorer. This is the real deal.

BTW, did I mention the game is gorgeous?! Polish up the wazoo, and Monolith really seems to have considered everything a player would want for this type of game. A real-time mini map on the touch screen, tons of options and customizability -- the works.

Just had a quick run on this, it looks absolutely beautiful and I can't stop thinking the FF remakes should have been in this style, with 2D backgrounds and 3D characters, everything is so gorgeous and smooth. Too bad I can't understand a thing to play further.

This does indeed look like a nice game, but I'll wait for a (U) or (E) release. I can't stand looking at all that Japanese text.....looks like a bunch of TV antennas.....or chicken scratch....or something.

I can't wait to get my hands on this. Looks like the best game in a long time.

Can people please give some impressions on how hard it is to play with no Japanese knowledge? Are the menus and configuration fairly straight forward for an RPG, or is it too hard to get very far? Thanks.

I know I'll end up trying it anyway. I just want to "see" it, if nothing else.

Menu is very simple.

It goes like this:

QUOTEItems
- View items
- Assign potions

Equip

Use
- AP Points
- Assign Skills

Character

Map
- Area Map(The one you are in)
- World Map

Log(?)
- Act(Chapter)
- Something(Dunno what this is)

Options
- Save
- Configure
- Quit Game

By the way, I don't know Japanese :P

Man this is hard. The first mini-boss is a penguin that can rape your ass. He brought me down to 30 HP twice T.T
Also, there's a cooldown on potions. That will be a nuisance later.

If someone want to get inside the filesystem, this game is tricky.
Extract it with DSlazy or ndstool : you'll see only one file data/data.srl
This file itself is the real rom of the game, unpack it with ndstool or dslazy.
The text is in shift-jis with some html like code (like
for breaks) it's located in the data/menu directory.
