From Software (makers of King's Field, Enchanted Arms, and Demon's Souls, among many others) has revealed their next game, and it looks a whole lot like a LEGO version of Dragon Quest as an action-RPG.  That's quite a leap from Demon's Souls, but it looks very intriguing nonetheless.  Gametrailers has a thread about it with some scans on page 3.

I will be much more interested when I can actually see gameplay.  November in Japan means probably a year or so for us so there is plenty of time.

There's a thread at NeoGAF with lots of awesome-looking screenshots.  I hope they release a video, as I'd love to see the game in motion.

I read at the GameFAQs forum that, according to the game's story, the kingdom started out as 2D sprites, but the king changed everything to 3D in order to attract more people to the kingdom  icon_biggrin

They're not really being subtle about it, either.  Honestly, I'm surprised Nintendo hasn't slapped a C&D on this!

hmm.. apparently it changes videos but not the address.  after it's finished playing the other video should be the one named dungeon gameplay in the list that pops up.

I just got the e-mail from Atlus that they are the ones publishing the game in North America.  It's coming May 11 (although Gamestop's page says 5/3 for some reason) for $39.99 smile  The official website is here, but there's not much at the moment.

Whoa From did Enchanted Arms?  I had no idea.  I really enjoyed it despite the weak story.  And how can the OP not mention Chromehounds?

I hope these guys make a lot of money from DS.  I'd like to see a little bit better production value in their future releases.

Don't know about "hilarious."  A parody of comedy?

Looking very forward to this game, though.

Am I the only one who isn't at all interested in the trailers they've shown for this? They've gone out of their way to make it look like a Zelda clone. If I wanted to play Zelda, I'd play Zelda.

Truth in advertising, I guess.  Every preview and review I've read indicates it is pretty much exactly a Zelda clone.

fixed smile . &, yeah, it's zelda, but featuring a character creator & a very warped, un-zelda-like sense of humor, & made by the people who made demon's souls. &, of course, priced at $40...

but, sure, if you prefer the real deal, you've already got lots to choose from as is, i guess. me, i've pre-ordered smile ...

Atlus games seem to have much better distribution now than they used to and 3D Dot Game Heroes seems to be a reasonably high profile release for them so I'm guessing it won't be hard to find later.

Played through the first temple, and I couldn't love it more.  Just great. 

My only wish is that they'd released a guide with it.  The one on GameFAQs is very good (they seem to have upgraded what they can do in a FAQ significantly), but it still doesn't let me put a bookmark in the remind me where I was.

yeah - got as far as you did. it's extremely cute, but i can easily see it getting challenging as well - very cool! smile ...


edit: now in the second dungeon, & found the from cave on my way (& enjoyed all the demon's souls references smile ). something suggested on neogaf that i've done is switch to 'camera b' in the options - between that & installing the game, it all feels much better now...

I switched to camera B almost immediately (it's a habit of mine to go into Options first thing for new games).  How big is the install and how big of a difference does it make?

I'm actually a little worried about the difficulty ramping up too much.  Right now I really like the balance, but I can see it getting harder, too.

For some reason, the load screens are turned off by default, so you only see them on longer loads, like when the game first starts up.  They also won't be entered into the Loading Screens album even when you do see them.  Be sure to turn them on under Options if you want to see more of them.

the install's 1220 mb, & cuts the load times by half at least - makes things smoother...

i turned them on, too - they're only visible for a second or 2, but they're nice smile ...


edit: somewhere in the depths of the 3rd dungeon, & am finding the challenge to be just about zelda level. very impressed with the dungeon designs so far (& the over-world, for that matter) - it's pretty obvious that the game wasn't just tossed together, & that these guys know their stuff smile ...

Got this coming from GameFly and I'm very excited to give it a try. I've been jonesing for some old school Zelda action. Darksiders have been scratching that itch recently but this looks like it will be even better.
