    I can't wait to buy Ghibli and Level 5's Ninokuni: The Another World. Supposedly it's hitting the maket here this spring. What really caught my interest was the new 4gb game cart they're useing. I'm hoping for more 4gb games to come.

    You realise it will mostly be used by video cutscenes and voice acting rather than extra gameplay?

    Game cartridges are measured in (mega/giga)bits rather than (mega/giga)bytes so it's only 512 megabytes. Still, it's big for a DS game. And now that I come to think of it, a massive amount of Ghibli cutscenes might not be a bad thing at all.

    my bad -_- that completely slipped my mind I associate GB or Gb with gigabytes and not bits. but till 512mb is still huge I'll still have to find another SD around my room XD my 8GB card is full up.

    I hope you can read Japanese because this game is text heavy.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I believe this was confirmed (or at least speculated) when the game was announced, still it's a huge precedent, though I doubt any other game will be this large in size.
    I very much enjoyed the Professor Layton games and I love RPGs, so hopefully this game will be released in the States as well.

    Yeah, this is old news. I actually had a go with the demo that Level 5 sent to previewers. The demo was dumped as "Level 5 Platinum demo" or something. It has a couple of other games on there too. The demo was 256MB in size. The game is looking very promising, despite having pretty standard RPG turn based gameplay. You can find it online if you look hard enough, it's an XXXX release. If nothing else, the game is absolutely gorgeous, oozing with style. Has a lot of full motion video cutscenes in traditional animation worthy of Studio Ghibli. What isn't animated is rendered ingame, which is still gorgeous, boasting lush hand drawn environments. The characters are surprisingly high-polygon cel shaded 3D models. They look spectacular and are animated with much attention to detail. The animation is very realistic and doesn't look artificial like most other 3D DS games. I can't think of a single 3D DS game that animates as beautifully.

    The soundtrack is equally gorgeous, it's streaming and sounds to be fully orchestrated. There's a ton of voice acting too, about 85% of the demo was fully voiced..

    This game looks like a winner. Production values are through the roof, you can tell a lot of heart went into it. It's gorgeous and charming, the story should be magical too. All that waits to be seen is the gameplay. From what i've played, it's standard turn based fare, solid as a rock though. You run around environments, run into random battles, give commands, win, rinse and repeat. And of course, there's treasure to collect and more characters to use. There's some stylus mechanics too, where you draw on the screen. I came across two ways to use this in the demo. The first way was to enter the other magical world (which is like an alternate magic dimension of the real world), and another design you draw seems to summon another battle partner, who looks like his head is made of a horned pumpkin.

    Looking forward to this, one step closer to cartridge games reaching CD-sizes. And with modern day compression, they can do a lot with 512MB. Lets pray it comes to the US. Surely it will though...

    Oh my god!!! I watched the trailer.. It is epic, awesome!!! The graphic. The music. Awesome.. I think the story not bad too [​IMG] Cant wait for it!

    LOL I thought this thread was created by Another World and telling that he will use a 4gb gamecart/memory card. Then first thing came out from my brain was :" What the hell? Why do he posted this thread here? It supposed to be in blog or any Edge of The Forum" LOL

    Holy CRAP, for a second I was thinking how a DS game could possibly be 4gb O___O

    This game looks absolutely amazing... Something I would love playing, since I love games with good stories and STUDIO GHIBLI [​IMG]

    But if it's not even released in Japanese yet, I'm not gonna wait up for an english release any time soon... So sad [​IMG]
