I played every characters introduction and I didn't find the length or amount of text an issue, but I've never played a Final Fantasy game before so it could be more text heavy compared to the RPGs like that. For some reason most people I speak to count FF as the standard for JRPGs...

Can someone confirm that the japanese language is available on europeans cartridge please?
i think it should be inscribed on the back of the box.

thank you

Anyway, if you don't have the time, patience or excitement to "read yourself" into a new game, then you should take a pause from the gerne and look for something different. Sorry to be the one to tell you, but there's more than a dozen great action-RPGs on the system that don't expect you to read that much story and dialogue.

Patients isn't exactly the right word. I read books all the time so it's not a problem with text or dialog itself. It's basically a complaint that it seems like a lot of these games are writing more to extend the run time of the game without having a good story reason for these things. That was why I was making reference earlier to the lengths of books and movies.

You're generally supposed to distill a story down to it's essential elements. Don't say in two words what you can say in one and all that. The worst offenders in recent memory(and granted I havn't played every rpg to release) are XC2, pokemon sun/moon, and Fantasy Life. Really it's all about balance to me. I'm not saying I want a game with no story or you know like a mario story. But at the same time I feel like 80-100 hours is asking a bit much.

Well, "patients" definitely isn't the right word.

(sorry)

@maelis Yeah, the Nintendo UK website confirms Japanese as a supported language for the game. It might only take effect if your system language is also Japanese, but it should be there. The demo confirms that you'll also be able to have Japanese audio with English text if you wish.

I actually do agree that JRPGs nowadays can be needlessly long, especially with dialogue. My favorite example is Ni No Kuni, which is filled with 5-10 minute conversations that are 80-90% redundant and boring.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

I think modern JRPG writers think more dialogue = more depth. So they push to make sure every character has an opinion regarding something and hope that's enough to flesh out their characters.

Valkyria Revolution was this at it's worst, where the most original opinion anyone had was 'war is bad'.

I want to finish Wolfenstein New Order on XBOX and Bayonetta 1 on switch. I also heard you can start the demo for Octo and pass it to the game. Anything worth doing it for or can I just start the cartridge?

@magnumc500 Not really, it's just 3 hours headstart of the game, just start at the cartridge unless you are super impatient.

@magnumc500 At this point I would iust start the full game. I played the demo but felt rushed due to the time limit, might as well start with the full version

Kimyonaakuma

Kimyonaakuma

@darkfenrir Wow it looks even more amazing...

I preordered on the eShop but I don't know if I should start it at midnight or wake up early

Kimyonaakuma

darkfenrir

@Kimyonaakuma I would say wake up early, that way you won't pressure yourself to not have fun because you need to sleep soon XD

I'm a bit surprised we haven't seen a review yet...

Tibob

Kimyonaakuma

@darkfenrir That's a good idea!

@Tibob I doubt most reviewers have finished the game, they're probably just trying to get a general sense of the game and write something before it comes out.

Kimyonaakuma

darkfenrir

I think today or tomorrow we'll see reviews, since right now there's probably some sort of review's embargo going on by SE.

@Kimyonaakuma Wake up early, not only can your first session last longer but you can't guarantee it'll be available at midnight. I preordered the Mega Man Legacy collections and they weren't playable until like the afternoon of launch day.

@Grumblevolcano Thanks for letting me know, I just assumed that it would be available instantly

I guess I'll be going to sleep early then...

@darkfenrir I'll wait for the cartridge, I've had the demo downloaded a while and just never got around to it. I know they said no multiplayer but I'm still excited to see for myself. I hope it does. It's not gonna happen but I'd love an MMO that looked like this.
