I wish they had more to show in that basically a tease for a Switch exclusive. I'm glad it's exclusive. Give Nintendo Persona 5 then Sony can have this. ūüėĚ

I'll be darned... exclusive huh? That's a major win for Nintendo, and helps offset the balance of Persona 5 being PS4 exclusive.

@JaxonH we knew that it's gonna be exclusive for a really long time tho. Well, relatively speaking, since the game got first teased only at the start of the year.

Holy cow, can you guys believe it's only been like 9 months since the switch presentation? That just sunk in on my end XD

What a beautiful signature.

@Tsurii
Actually, we didn't and technically we still don't (although the likelihood is more favorable now).

They said a 3DS version was coming and an "HD version", but didn't specifically say a Switch version, leaving other versions on the table.

Then there was a report that a sequel was coming to PS4. The only thing was, they were talking about SMT, Persona and Etrian Odyssey. So it theoretically could have been referring to Persona 6 or a PS4 Etrian Odyssey 6 (seriously doubtful since both those games just had their 5th entry released) or it meant SMT is getting a sequel on PS4. That, coupled with labelling it "HD version" when originally announced is enough to convince me it's coming to PS4.

Maybe not... but the more I look back on those facts the more I'm convinced this may not be Switch exclusive after all. But for now I'll roll with it until more evidence comes to light

@JaxonH Timed exclusivity is a possibility as the term exclusive has little meaning nowadays (see Microsoft E3 2017 conference for a perfect example). Unless the 3rd party game/franchise being talked about has 1st party characters, there's a very high chance that exclusive doesn't really mean proper exclusive.

I'm really eager to hear more about this game. I mean, the little tease was OK, but can we get actual gameplay footage, or a release window, or... something?

I could see this being Nocturne-esque, based on the footage.

I've never played a SMT game before but I'll definitely be giving this one a go. I just don't like turn based battles, never have. Xenoblade's battle system I can handle as it's more loose. I'm not going to let that put me off though as I've always wanted to play a SMT game.

Shin Megami Tensei? What is this? A new huge defining JRPG running on the Unreal engine coming out on a Nintendo home console outside of Japan for the first time ever?
You can count me in on that.

The Switch makes playing big adventure and RPG games a so much more enjoyable experience due to its hybrid nature.

Hopefully Xenoblade 2 will be completed by moi once SMTV is released over here.

Don't know bout Persona 5 though.

@OorWullie SMT's press turn combat system is easily one of the best turn-based combat systems out there, as it emphasizes planning, strategy, and skill management over level grinding. Even if you don't usually like TBC, I think you'll be able to appreciate the genius of this system's design once you play one of these games.

Rumours were true after all. No surprise really after what happened to Disney Infinity and Skylanders.

Putty Squad is one of the most boring games I've ever played. Someone gifted a PS4 copy to me during a holiday. Bless their heart.

Nights of Azure 2 Collector Edition just arrived. Exact same size as the Disgaea 5 CE, and the hardcover artbook is the exact same size too. Makes for a wonderful matching set!

I like the game, it's a lot like Tales of Berseria, both in main character design and plot. The combat is similar to Fire Emblem Warriors combos, only a bit more rigid, and it's a JRPG obviously.

I haven't noticed anyone talking about this game. Wouldn't rate it above Odyssey or Fire Emblem Warriors, which are both in a league of their own, but for Jay RPG fans this is a solid release. Very story driven with lots of cut scenes. The women look like they forgot to put their clothes back on after trying on lingerie at Victoria Secrets, but that's a modern JRPG for ya.

@JaxonH So I got that $100 Amazon gift for applying for a credit card. Used it for a 256gb micro and only ended up paying $32. I feel so much better about the whole situation now.

@Spoony_Tech

Oh, I'm so glad to hear it! A 256gb is about as respectable as you can get without going full Daddy Warbucks on a 400gb.

That should ease your concerns. Now you can buy whatever game you want to buy without worrying about the space. Even if you bought every single physical release with a major download- NBA 2K18, WWE 2K18, Resident Evil Revelations Collection and DOOM, that would still be just 78gb (well, minus 3gb save file on internal storage for NBA, and this total is counting the large update patches which fixed NBA 2K as well).

My advice is leave the 25gb remaining internal storage for save files, screenshots and videos, and some free space since systems always run better with 10% free space on the drive which the OS is on. That means any space taken up by 3 GB save files will just automatically go on there and you won't have to worry about it being counted against your SD card space. Even if you bought every single game available with a large download you would still have 234gb usable space minus 78gb = 160gb. And even if a few more games came out next year and the year after that required large downloads you would still be able to make it until 2020, and that's if you were buying every last single one of them which you're probably not going to do.

But even in the off chance you did fill the card up eventually, by then 400gb cards will be $100-150 and you can upgrade. Heck they'll even have 512gb cards by then, maybe even 768gb cards.

I'm going to buy a 128GB card the next time amazon has a sale on these, and that'll be enough for me. I'll just treat it like the PS4 where I delete games when I need room. No reason to horde data for games I'm done playing.

I'll only be buying a card for extra screenshot/video space. Until they do the proper account system I'll refrain from going digital. At least for retail games.
