Does anyone remember the Samurai Showdown RPG that SNK made for the Neo Geo? Hell, I’ll settle for just a localized port of that game to the Switch.
Anyway, I’d love to see a remake of the four original Super Robot Wars titles, but combined them into a single game.
QotW: To avoid the obvious Square answers, I’ll go for the only slightly less obvious Phantasy Star IV. We’re probably never going to get a new entry in that series (that isn’t an MMO), so at least a remake would give it the attention it deserves. For a non-RPG, maybe Dune II, the RTS breakout. Or even the weird original Dune.
TBH, I’m pretty excited about the DQIII remake – and the Front Mission ones look pretty good too.
I would be most interested in seeing remakes of either or both Kyūyaku Megami Tensei and Shin Megami Tensei: if… The former would be sort of funny since the KMT is itself a remake of the very first RPGs in the metaseries, Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei I and II. As for SMT: if…, it is the transitional form between (Shin) Megami Tensei and Persona. I find the game fascinating and would love to play it on a modern console.
QOTW: As a Tales fanboy, and since Breath of Fire and Wild Arms were already spoken for, I’m gonna say the OG Tales of Phantasia. I have it on GBA, but I would love to see that given a 2.5D modern polish and updates that made it feel and run better.
Long time listener first time poster. I can tell you that Overlord is a fun bit of power fantasy isekai anime though try not to be disappointed in the cgi they use its a bit ugly not quite Berserk 2018 levels bad but its not good either. For the question of the week I would like to see Lufia 2 get an HD 2d remake I loved the puzzles and the Ancient Cave side mode plus the capsule monsters had been pretty cool.
I would like SEGA to properly update Phantasm Star 1- 4. Another game I would like to see is Sailor moon another story. I know it was never brought over here, but it would be interesting to see them remake it.
Literally came here to high five the Sailor Moon Another Story remake. At this point I would take a port to Switch with like a FF mode or something, since that’s how I always play it 🙂
Follow up from Last week. Overlord very good anime, though Season goes a little silly at times. Apparently there is a season 4 on it’s way though.
As for a question of the week, I’d love to see either Chrono Trigger or Lufia 2 get an actual loving remake. I know Lufia 2 did get a remake … but I’d prefer to not believe that game exists.
