    I guess that's why it looks like a Zelda ripoff.

    Tfw people complain about an art style choice that sells tons of games in the primary region.

    Depends on the audience they're trying to attract.

    For a game like this, a more realstic style could do worse at attracting the attention of kids rather than a colorful chibi style.

    I don't see why some of you seem to dislike. I find the chibi style super adorable. And that fits perfectly a fantasy universe, in my opinion.

    Action combat seems decent enough to get me to try it. I just wish video game narratives would stop doing the "once, the world magic. Then nebulous darkness did happens long ago and magic didn't anymore. One chosen hero of destiny legend wakes the elemental spirits *Pttththbhtbtbhtbthbtb...*" It's weird I'm only taking strong exception to this trope now of all times, but I guess I've just reached the point of saturation. Here's a thought:

    In a world where few descendants of spiritual scholars are born with the ability to project their spirits outside of their bodies, there lives a boy who has been a servant to a young, noble woman of political clout in a large city. Taken in as an orphan, he develops silently within the household, never showing much emotion or connecting with very many people. As a result, he is regarded as something of an outsider and inhuman, and is more treated as a tool for service than a person. One day, by happenstance, he witnesses the orchestrated assassination of the young noble, the head of the house, by a group of people in foreign military dress. It turns out that this young woman is one of the people gifted with astral projection, and at the time of her murder, her soul separates from her body and accidentally takes residence inside the young servant. Under her command and without detection, they both flee from the assailants and escape the city. Being strong willed, she tries to control the boy like the mindless tool she thought he was, but as the adventure progresses, through their internal interactions the boy begins to develop a personality, slowly beginning to display preferences, ask questions, and fight against his aggressive commandeering spirit. The two, of course, come to understand one another through whatever and such, and slowly uncover an inside job orchestrated by her own government in an effort to, I dunno, something something economy something philosophy. The later twist is that the reason the boy was so docile throughout his life is that his parents were murdered in front of him and, unknowingly being able to astral project himself, his spirit fled from his body in fright. Story sequences contrive to take the party to the astral plane, where they meet his tortured soul adrift in the ether. Maybe he's a boss. Maybe not.

    I mean, that's kinda interesting, right? And I just made that garbage up right now. In all fairness, I don't know the story is going to be so simple as it's made out to be in the trailer, so I guess I should just shut up and wait.

    Oh shit, I remember this game! I remember seeing it during E3, I think last year. I'm so getting it. It gives me a bit of a Dark Cloud vibe, with the whole bringing back the cities.

    Been looking forward to this since I first saw it. I just hope it won't disappoint.

    I guess we can say 3DS is a RPG machine.

    The game seems ok, I might try it.
    Still have to beat some RPGs

    considering its developed by the same team that made the 3DS remakes of those N64 Zelda titles, it doesnt seem much like a ripoff to me but rather a team working with an engine they already developed to make a new game.
