The game is from the Bravely Default team which is cool.

Yeah, I guessed as much when they showed that picture of them in the pub. Very similar art.

One for the Cappas and Jasses of this world. Grin

Looks potentially grand, much though I'm no fan of retraux art styles. Anything from the Bravely boys is good with me. Thumbs Up!

I almost fell asleep during the rpg bit of the presentation. Laughing

I'm guessing the name is hinting at a branching storyline - the trailer voiceover was suggesting as much, at least.

The art style is unique enough to get me interested, so I'll be watching this space closely.

It doesn't dissuade me at all (because I'm not allergic to choice in video games Wink ) - in fact, it actually has me even more intrigued as I can't recall a Squeenix RPG which didn't have a linear storyline. I'm probably missing something obvious, of course.

Chrono Trigger? I mean it's Squaresoft instead, but y'know...

Yeah, fair shout! Still, most Squeenix RPGs don't afford you choice in their stories, so I'll be interested to see how this one pans out. I'm purely speculating at this stage as it could end being as linear as the first twenty hours of Final Fantasy XIII. Laughing

I almost fell asleep during the rpg bit of the presentation. Laughing

The section where they announced, like, eight RPG's in a row? I love RPG's, me, but even I thought that bit sagged. Sad

That said, totally up for this. The art style made me wince a bit until they got to the battles; then I was like, "Oh." Ready for this.

It was a Japanese conference but like I posted in the old Switch chat, Japan are getting behind the Switch and will hopefully see more of games like this better or for worse depending on who you are.
