If etrian odyssey has a future on the switch, how do you suspect they change the game?
I still remember being really excited when games started really getting made for phones, especially RPGs, back before the majority were revealed to be micro-transaction riddled cashgrabs with little depth to them.
Where did it all go wrong, really?
And A second, related question, Did you ever have a game/series you thought would really work well as a mobile games,that never got made, or was just made badly? I always thought TWEWY could have an awesome sequel or spinoff for phones. Joshua already uses one as a weapon in the original! And they could have had updating pins and maybe region or loaction based functions…what could have been.
Why do you think it is that Zelda is more popular in the West vs japan?
Im pretty sure I share of love of card based games with sssomeone on this podcast, so I feel comfortable posing this question.
Are most card-based RPG battle systems really that far removed from a lot of other more traditional RPG battle systems? I see the most resemblance to stuff like old school DnD and spell memorization and such, but if you just replace A lot of limited resource reliant functions like mana or weapons with cards, I Dont think the end result ends up being to different. And in any case, theyre more fun to collect,and a useful abstraction anyway.
I thought of this while watching some Death’s Gambit gameplay but… Is Dark Souls just a 3D Castelvania series?
It’s what 3d castlevania could have been. The way the world sort of connects in dark souls 1 feels a little like a metroidvania.
With Octopath Traveler having as of now sold over a million copies here in the US do you believe it might influence if the next FF game could be turn based? Personally I believe that ship has sailed for series. But games like Octopath, Divinity Original Sin and if Dragon Quest XI sells I hope might plant a seed that turn based rpgs can still appeal to a Western audience.
And are you looking forward to Bards Tale IV and the upcoming remasters of original trilogy?
