    Hot off the heels of their Nindie showcase, Nintendo have announced a new Nintendo Direct, focusing on the new mobile role-playing game 'Dragalia Lost'. The direct will air on the 29th, at 8:30pm PT. They have also revealed that the game will release on the 27th of September, about a month after the stream. The game was first announced back in April, and will be launching on iOS and Android devices. It is being developed by CyGames.

    Here's the reveal trailer, just in case you don't remember:

    Not sure if I forgot or simply didn't know about this game. Well, I'll try to watch it tomorrow.

    As if Nintendo couldn't disappoint viewers waiting for a direct further...

    Really though Cygames is reputable. It'll probably be decent. But still.

    I'll probably never have any real interest in mobile games even when Nintendo are developing the game in question. All the same, I do like that they have started to create experiences specifically for mobile, and its nice to see them doing something a little different with the platform as well. I wish this game luck even though I know I'll never personally play it.

    Too cute... I'll stick to classic Phantasy Star, Sword of Vermilion, etc. from back when art didn't go down the tubes.

    Yeah, I don't mind some cuteness, but this is way too much, it give a very weird feeling to have kawaii / chibi design with normal voices :rofl:

    It's a bit sad that a lot of J-RPG go down that path, I know it sells a lot, but there was a time when we had a little bit more choices, and everybody could find something according his tastes...

    E3 Direct, Smash Bros Direct, Nindie Direct 1, Nindie Direct 2, Mobile Direct. I don't all these new indies (as long as they're good), but if their next one isn't a full 30 minute Switch-centric new AAA Direct I'm done

    That's the thing, is that things like this sell, and a lot at that. Which is what upsets me about the fans because what they fail to realize is just how you can have too much darkness in your life, you can also have too much light. And that's the thing, these companies don't seem very hard pressed to make much that is dark anymore, at least from what I see. And if it is darker, it always comes across as semi if not full on homo-erotic, and the sex of the males is always ambiguous. Which again makes me just go back and enjoy the classic Anime films, and the old games time and time again, as no one seems to be eager to produce the next Akira or Vampire Hunter D, unless it's some OVA garbage. And as for games, well I'm talking in circles now...

    Anyhow, this trend sucks and bores the life out of me.

    They've done Granblue Fantasy, which is actually a very good mobile game (with a ps4 game in the work by Platinum Game).
    They've also made Shadowverse but I didn't really played it, so can't say how it is

    I'm interested in anything by CyGames. Gameplay looks really interesting. Art style is a little more generic but meh. Hopefully they do lots of cross-overs and get my Granblue waifus in the game. It's interesting Nintendo is helping them with this project.

    Granblue Fantasy is one of the top gacha games out there. It was actually so successful that they keep it fully translated and localized in English. They don't have an official English version cuz they do a lot of cross-overs, and licensing for that is a pain.
    But yeah Granblue is one of the more unique and interesting gachas, and most players feel it's very generous and fair. Granblue also has a lot of player interaction with a co-op mode you can play with friends, or raids you do with other people.

    Shame on Nintendo for joining in on the exploitation of people's psychological weaknesses.

    Shame shame shame shame shame.

    ;(

    (Yes I know this isn't their first freemium game.)

    It's not only about that. The resemblance is a bit more then just that. Even the transformation is almost exactly the same
