    Looks awesome. Definitely something to check out, as Tales of Vesperia was awesome (4-player co-op ftw!). Hopefully it'll be as good as some of the Tales games.

    The character design looks fantastic. Shame it doesn't last long and it's on the Wii.

    Looks very good, but also kinda gay to me [​IMG] But that's usually the case with Final Fantasy games....

    One of the things I like about the Tales series is the character design... but the characters in this game look terrible [​IMG]

    IF it's incredibly fun and has enjoyable music and a good storyline then maybe I'm going to play it...

    Looks like Tales crossed with a little DQ8. This could be amazing.

    huh...

    Luminous Arc dev team are the main developer..

    the character design seem to be similar from Luminous Arc series and tales series....

    looks quite amazing, beside the graphic...:S

    this game should be on 360/PC/DS rather than Wii.....

    The character designer is Kenichi Yoshida, who's probably famous for doing the character designs in Eureka Seven, and I think that's the only thing he's really done (aside from technical stuff like keynote animation and whatnot) which explains why I thought I was looking at Dominic while browsing the official website's character page.

    Actually it doesn't look as bad as some of you made it out to be, the only picture I find to be horrible is the store(if that's even what it is)

    Looks graphically generic, but the game could be good gameplay wise. Is it me or does the blond hero look like a recycled 3D version of Roland from Luminous Arc 2.

    The term "PS2-tacular" comes to mind, as does "meh." Not too impressive. What's less impressive, though, is that the pickings are so slim on Wii -- not only in the RPG genre, but overall -- that some folks are actually excited for this game. And third parties wonder why they can't sell their products on the system. [​IMG]

    Online mode?

    This is not a FPS. LOL.
