Well, there's a demo out for this game right now, at least on the EU eShops. Being region free most people should be able to access it.

I'm playing now, and already I love it! This is a quality Sega RPG. And it's a really polished, good looking game too. Production values which easily match that of the recent Tales games, and tbh it looks almost just as good as Tales of Berseria did on PS4... even despite running on Switch. Seriously, it's a good looking game.

This demo just made me take this game infinitely more seriously. I was already excited for it but now I actually believe in it, and know for certain it's a real gem.

I recommend all of you go check this game out. Yet another quality RPG landing on Switch in the next month or so.

So excited for this game!

Have it preordered for a long while, so yeah, I'm skipping the demo xD

Ah, I couldn't wait. I just had to check this game out.

I could pretty much stop playing now if I wanted to but... I kinda don't want to!

The goofs had the map up the whole time lol. Can toggle it to a mini map in the corner or just toggle it off.

@JaxonH That's a relief! Maybe it's just because of Sega's inconsistency on quality, but I was concerned about this game.

If you don't mind, I have a couple questions about it. Do you find the characters and overall setting likable? Did anything stand out to you in particular?

Good to hear it’s good and hope NA gets a demo. I realize I COULD make a EU account to access the demo but I don’t feel it’s worth the hoops, I jumped through them to get a Japanese demo awhile back and getting rid of the extra newsfeeds was enough of a headache, especially for a demo. I’ll just wait and see if we get a demo, the game sounds good and it’s on my radar but so are a lot of other games at the moment.

@ShadJV Yes NA will get demo too, should be at the usual time eshop update (9AM PST or something? Around 9 hours 7 minutes from now)

I mean, from what I've played, ya. The characters are great. Honestly this game feels like a better Tales. That may be a premature assessment but that's just my impressions from the little bit I've played. I feel like I am more connected to the characters at this point in the game then I was to Velvet in Tales of Berseria.

I really like the designs of the characters too. It's just really great character design and art style.

As for the setting I can't really speak too much on that, but I see nothing wrong with it. I think that's something better gauged from trailers and gameplay footage, and from what I've seen in the gameplay trailers it looks pretty nice.

I'm really surprised how much this game impressed me though. I'm not sure what I was expecting with this, but it really feels like they've out done Bandai Namco with the Tales series (disregarding Vesperia, since that was an older entry and at the height of the series- I'm stoked for that one).

The combat is different though. But I like the system, and from what I've read it can get pretty intense in this game. Complex, unique combat. And I've read the game can get pretty difficult too, so it's good they included a casual mode for those who so choose.

@JaxonH You made a compelling endorsement! Thank you for that. As someone coming from playing Berseria too, I definitely get your point about the disconnect between player and characters. I can't wait to try this out!

And just to be clear I'm not trying to attack Tales of Berseria or anything. I thought it was a great game and I know a lot of others enjoyed it as a great game as well.

I think it's more of a testament to this game's impressive quality than it is a knock against Tales, although I think we can all agree there are some issues with the newer Tales

The writing and voice acting weren't great in the demo, but the gameplay itself was fun enough and it looks very nice both on and off the dock. SEGA did a good job with this port.

I kind of want to wait on this until I finish Octopath and Ys, but I also want that metal case you get for pre-ordering. What to do. What to do.

The steelbook is nice.

If you can snag a 20% off discount via BestBuy or Amazon, on top of the $49.99 price tag, then you're basically looking at $39.99 for the steelbook version day one.

Not a bad deal if I do say so myself. Unless the game is a full $60 I... honestly can't remember. I think it's only $50 though... maybe... definitely maybe

@JaxonH Yeah, it's only $50. Even less on the eshop at $45, which is probably the better deal when you combine that price with gold coins if you're like me and live in a state with a high sales tax.

And, you know, digital is super convenient and I don't regret going digital for Xenoblade 2 one bit. But that metal case, man! I absolutely love steelbooks.

Played through the demo and loved it. I will definitely be buying it when it comes out. Between this, Ys VIII and Octopath Traveller I'll have my hands full with JRPG's for awhile.
But yeah, It looks like its going to be a great game.

Ralizah

Yeah, this is reminding me a bit of how much the 3DS' JRPG prospects changed in 2013. Before then, we had, like, two good RPGs on the 3DS, and then suddenly: BAM! Etrian Odyssey IV, FE Awakening, Soul Hackers, SMT IV.

Switch had exactly one great JRPG until now (Xenoblade Chronicles 2), and suddenly: BAM! Ys VIII, Octopath Traveler, Shining Resonance Refrain, and Tales of Vesperia.

@Ralizah
And Valkyria Chronicles 4, Fire Emblem Three Houses, Mario Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Pillars of Eternity 2, The World Ends With You, and eventually Dragon Quest XI and SMTV.

They're really stacking up.

Nice! I'll give the demo a try and it seems like this would be the next logical RPG to grab when I'm done with Ys VIII and Octopath. I'm still playing it by ear whether to get Dragon Quest XI on PS4 or wait for Switch, I really prefer playing RPGs with lots of grinding on Switch. Disgaea 1 Complete on October 9th USA is a day one purchase for me, dood!
