@Cynas
They’re both huge RPGs. I think I’ll spend more time in MH Stories 2, to be perfectly honest, but we’ll see. I’ll be going back and forth between them.

Lot of games coming out. I’m also doing Ys IX, MH Stories 2, Zelda, Ace Attorney, Neo TWEWY and want Samurai Warriors 5, but they always release an Ultimate Edition a year later with all the season pass content. May hold off for that.

Drowning in games. Not a bad problem to have… at least for us. Could be a problem for Ys success though. And after the lackluster performance of Trails, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a smidge concerned.

Can someone tell me how well, or badly, the demo captures what makes these games enjoyable? Cause what I played of that was...not fun to me.

@JaxonH mine is coming on friday! I most likely will play Monster Hunter first but if the case comes with no cartridge I will cancel my pre order and this ones gets full attention instead

@DomGC it kind plays like VIII so I would say it is a fair representation on the other hand the time limit was kind of meh as the fun is to explore and follow the story

@DomGC
The demo was just a short run with combat.

Full game is an RPG with engaging story, lovable characters, tons of exploration, and fun combat.

I strongly believe that won’t be the case. See my post here which explains why that whole thing is almost certainly an error.

If the combat mostly stays the same I probably won't bother then. That's all I wanted to know, thanks.

I know better than to judge if I'll like a story from a demo, I'd go into that with an open mind either way.

Will probably be my next game after Ninja Gaiden Collection, but I'm not even yet done with the first game.

@JaxonH I believe so too but if that is not the case I will definitely cancel it and buy it on heavy discount later on (I don't pay full 60 for digital games)

Ys IX on Switch is out in North America tomorrow. I'll be picking up my pre-order at GameStop; I traded in a couple games I no longer needed for a discount. I rarely pre-order, but Falcom games don't seem to have long print runs.

Funny thing is, I haven't played Ys VIII yet. I keep going back and forth between which one I want to play lol. I know there are no connections in the series outside of the first two titles, unlike the Trails games.

@Snaplocket
Same. The tracking said it was supposed to arrive yesterday but it never did, which I think has to do with the holiday.

I have the Ys VIII Switch Collector Edition, and both Trails of Cold Steel III and Trails of Cold Steel IV Collector Editions. I really love the Falcom CE’s released by NIS. I forget if this one has a steelbook though.

@Tyranexx
Is it tomorrow? And here I thought I was going to be getting the game early. For some reason I thought it was Friday alongside MH Stories 2.

@JaxonH IIRC, Ys IX doesn't release in Europe until Friday, so that could be where your wires crossed. A quick Google search also shows that poor Australia has to wait until July 16th. Competing with Monster Hunter Stories 2 in the same week is insane enough, but with Skyward Sword? Crazy!

But if you had ordered physical from Nisa's Europe store, you'd probably get the game a few days early, @Tyranexx .... All my games from them came between 1 day before release & a week early!

No, @Balta666 .... It unlocks at 5/6 pm? You thinking of PS4?

@BruceCM I knew It released earlier in the year on PlayStation but was believing it had released on Steam at the same time (and I had it on wishlist there until I bought it on switch)

BruceCM

Sadly not, @Balta666 .... The Steam release is worldwide today! They announced that along with the dates for the Switch one, too! 4 hours to go

@BruceCM After import fees, it wouldn't have been worth it in my case. I've not yet been blessed with receiving a game before launch! Though to be fair I rarely pre-order anything lol.
