Tales of Graces
« on: December 14, 2008, 02:59:51 PM »
I know it's really early to be making a topic on this, but the trailer that was shown at Ninty's October Conference has been released to the public...

Directfeed Download
YouTube Trailer

Looks like a 3D Tales game, which means it looks nice...Good music, too (though old)... =)

Main character appears to be by himself to start off with (of course, they could just have hidden the other characters for now), and he utilizes a mix of swordplay and hand-to-hand styles...

(Oh, and Mothership is obviously not the title, nor the temporary title...I just felt like calling it that since it has no other name...)

No NPCs either, I guess they just don't have much to show off yet.

1.  Looks like it has a decent graphics budget.
2.  Dawn of Fist has better combat animation.

There are NPCs, you just have to look carefully... =)

Here's some high-quality grabs I took:

Now, is Namco announcing this so it's not left out of the public mindshare after the DragonTon X announcement?
Cuz this still looks very early.

1.  No mo-cap?  (hard to tell, especially with the stiff Virtua Fighter sidestepping and the robotic town running)
2.  Main character is hardly cel-shaded, just like Dawn of Fist.
3.  Enemies have zero cel-shading, unlike Dawn of Fist.

And Bill was roomering, in external channels, that the Destiny team is working on this, meaning it's another "it's the first time we're doing 3D" project from Namco 4th-tier devs.  WAY TO TRY HARD, THERE.

Good luck with that. They're better off waiting. There isn't a bigger game to announce in Japan.

Maybe making game announcements with Iwata present (consuming free beer and shrimp) at the conference is the hip thing to do among Japanese game publishers.

Of course it's not bigger but there's a chance they want to remind gamers that "hey, we're making Wii RPGs too, when you're picking up DQX why not get one of ours as well?).

I see where you're going.

Iwata might not show up to their press conference, maybe they WANT Iwata to step up and share some promotion support as well.  Dragon Warrior bombed two decades ago in the West, and DQX will bomb as well, so maybe Namco wants Iwata to realize there are better RPGs to promote.  And maybe they'd love to have Nintendo take care of the promotions because they don't want to spend a penny to market another Wii Tales game as well.

According to VG Chartz (lols),

Tales of Vesperia sold 110K copies in the 3.5 months it's been out in the USA

Tales of Awesome: Dawn of Fist already surpassed that, selling 120K in the 4 weeks it's been out.

I'm actually excited about this.  Tales of Symphonia was my first foray into the Tales of... universe and I had a wonderful time with it.  There's something about Dawn of the New World that makes me a little bit apprehensive about purchasing it, but the overwhelming popularity of it on this site might make me change my mind.

But this new "mothership" (even with lack of basically any details) has me incredibly excited.

Maybe I should continue playing Phantasia but I'm at a point where I have to find some "leader" in a labyrinth of TONS of enemies and that's just too damn tedious.

Phantasia has some very tedious stretches.  It's ok to stop, i stopped as well after some wacko plot twists.

Ugh...still no cel-shading (Vesperia and Symphonia 1 pretty much established for me that's how this series SHOULD look, just with better animation)?  Well, at least the environments look better this time around.  I suppose getting any Wii RPG is better than getting none at all...

Yeah, I was shocked by the lack of cell shading, especially after Symphonia.  Here's hoping for better from Dragon Quest X.  And has anybody seen anything recently on Skies of Arcadia II?

hi, I just recently read that this tales of "mothership" is supossed to be the prequel to tales of symphonia,which is set durign kratos, mithos, yuan and martel's travel. The displayed character is supposed to be a young Kratos aurion.

@-@ I dont know but I think this is kinda odd. though it would be awesome to have the prequel of tales of symphonia
