The maps look fantastic, and with how expansive they are they remind me of those from Radiant Dawn and Path of Radiance.
I hope we get giant maps that are divided into different parts, like Serenes Forest in PoR.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

The maps really do remind me of past console entries. It's a much prettier game when in grid-based battle than it first appears.

@Ralizah
My brother LOVES Shin Megami Tensei. He said SMT IV was his fave game on the 3DS. I enjoyed it but never played past the beginning parts.

But given his high praise, and how much I trust his opinion, I'm more excited for SMTV than a Persona port.

Because some people want simulation/visual novel elements in their strategy games. If anything, Sakura Wars' story holds it up on its own, the fact that it's also a decent strategy series is only icing on the cake. It's an anime game for anime fans who also game, with production values that were certainly great for its time. And "cheap? Like, seriously? Have you ever actually seen a visual novel? The intro cinematics in Sakura Wars 2-5 would probably break the bank for roughly 90% of VNs out there.

Don’t take it so personal. I never said there wasn’t an audience for it. I said I never got the appeal.

And ya, seriously. It’s always looked cheap to me.

For the record, fans self describe it as “part visual novel”. It’s not an insult, it’s just a descriptor.

@JaxonH And I was trying to explain the appeal, so you could at least understand the appeal - from what I've gathered, I don't think its fans see it as an alternative to Fire Emblem. The story, setting, characters, and their relationships have been developed over the course of 5 games, and I think its safe to say that the fans are more invested in these aspects compared to other strategy games. It also helps that the games have always had professionally done animation on par with anime OVAs of the mid-90s, adding to the appeal for anime fans - so much so that nearly every game in the series have been adapted into an anime at this point. The mix of strategy and sim elements add more situations to get to know and interact with these characters, something with we've only seen crop up in strategy games more often in the wake of Sakura Wars' success.

And I only complained about it "looking like a cheap Visual novel" because I've seriously never seen more than a handful of VNs that have more than just text with still images in the backround, aesthetically speaking. Even the more successful ones that are guaranteed to make their money back.

Seriously, Steins;Gate 0 looked like this:

Still portraits, stock backrounds, panning art and effects when necessary for emphasing an emotional or climactic moment, and maybe an animated opening and climax scene if they can afford it - that sums up my experience with Visual Novels from a visual standpoint. I'm genuinely curious as to what VNs you were comparing it to, because in my opinion, to call Sakura Wars a "cheap VN" undermines the amount of effort that went into it.

Sakura Wars is like a VN with the budget and interactivity of a major console RPG.

@JaxonH Steampunk mechs and romance simulation set in the Taishō period. What's not to love? So Long My Love was pretty good. Also a big fan of Valkyria Chronicles of which I've played the first and 4th entries and enjoy them both more than the Fire Emblems I've tried...all of which I have yet to finish.

Which... is exactly the kind of stuff shown in the trailer I posted. (Aside from blinking eyes). It’s not the only thing but it’s certainly a part of it (and from descriptions I’ve read, a big part of it).

If you feel differently that’s fine but I make my assessments based on what I see. Again, don’t take it so personally. Nobody’s trying to strongarm you into changing your opinion.

Well that’s probably your answer right there. I like Valkyria Chronicles, and spread word about that game when it released. I’m not against it. But it doesn’t come close to Fire Emblem. Not playing in the same league.

So if you enjoy that more, that’s probably why you find the game appealing and I don’t. Taisho period? I don’t even know what a Taisho period is, which probably explains my lack of interest in it.

Are you blind??? There were lip movements, 3d backrounds, animated movement in even small details...look, I'm not trying to change your mind on the game, but your willful ignorance is frankly appalling. It'd be like if I said that Fire Emblem Awakening looks like a mobile game with no feet, and then flagrantly ignored comparisons like this:

I mean, there are just clear visual differences I could spend all day pointing out...but I won't, because you've clearly demonstrated that you know literally nothing about except that the hypothetical version that exists only in your mind based on what I assume is exactly 30 seconds of research considering how it took me at least a couple of minutes to find and read through the Sakura Wars wiki...pales in comparison to Fire Emblem, and therefore doesn't matter to you.

I'm sorry if I mistook the phrase "I never got the appeal of ______" as an invitation to learn about something. Now I know that what you meant was "I don't care for it."

I'll tell you this: SMT is a dream series for hardcore JRPG fans. It's top of the list. I'm literally struggling to enjoy playing classic JRPGs I used to love now because the SMT series raised my standards for what can be done with traditional, turn-based JRPG gameplay.

This. So much truth.

Atlus has become my favourite jRPG developer after I discovered them upon the Square Enix merged.

@DenDen Looking at the expansion Pass details, it looks like the "Day 1" DLC is the bonus costume stuff, while new quests and stories come out far later, if that makes any kind of difference. I'd compain, since I still wish BotW had a complete pack, but I wound up buying the base game anyways and now I have to pretend the DLC doesn't exist until there's a time where I would rather purchase expanded content on an old game over a brand new game I haven't experienced before. I'll probably do the same here as well...

@DenDen Day 1 as others have said is only bonus costume and stuff. The rest will be released later down the line kinda like how Torna the Golden Country works. I hope it becomes standalone so it will move more units.

This is why I had you blocked for a long time.

You go unhinged, off the rails over the smallest things, you take offense to and relentlessly argue against opinions you dont like, and you aggressively respond in a civil discussion.

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt this time, but respond to me like that again, and it'll be the last post I read from you. I've lost patience with being disrespected by people who can't handle differing opinions.

New info

  • the continent of Fodlan is about 2/3 the size of Europe
  • the game’s story revolves mostly around the three major countries (Adrestian Empire, Holy Kingdom of Faerghus, Leicester Alliance), but characters from other countries will also show up
  • other than permanently scouting students from other houses, you can also ask them to assist you, after which they will join you for one month only
  • if you tap a Fire Emblem amiibo, you will receive a music track from their respective game that you can set as the background music for non-story battles

I LOVE the amiibo use. I really hope the songs chosen are good ones. Like the track from chapter 6 of Path of Radiance, or the track from chapter 10 of Awakening, or the main theme of Fates.

If it replaces battle music, isn't it likely to be that game's battle theme?

If true, now I want a Lyn, Eliwood, or Hector amiibo for Blazing Sword's battle music.

There's always Roy? Binding Blade is probably closest you're gonna get. Not sure if it shares same music though
