    Wonder what the release schedule for this one will ultimately turn out to be like, given that last year’s show implied a day and date Switch port (possibly one that’s releasing earlier, even).

  • If this comes to PC I would buy it day one.

    Of all the games to get sequels, I really never expected NnK. I thought it was really bad (and that’s coming from someone who finished it anyway).

    If they make a less terrible… uh, everything, it could be alright. Redo the repetitive music, don’t make monsters reset levels (and heavily rebalance all the ally monsters), make non-monster party members do something useful in battle alongside monsters, make endgame content less of a horrible meaningless grind, or at least make the reward for it all something not fucking shit like a useless car that honks

    Still need to play the first.

    Surprised they changed the combat (normal combat instead of Monster summoning). I keep saying I liked the first game- but I’ve not exactly rushed back to finish it. (Maybe I’m playing wrong, trying to raise one of everything instead of sticking with a reliable party). I hope this does improve because the games visuals and music was beautiful.

  • Still Here

    It’s funny after they first announced the game I could not care less about it. That is because all I could think about was the original’s meh combat with terrible AI. Seeing this change has got me a lot more interested since I did like both the art style and story of the first.

  • Maria Maasaa

    I never had a problem with the AI. But then again I controlled Swaine in every battle.

  • Juan Pablo Fernandez

    DS version is the real one, PS3 was heavily butchered on game mechanics and story.

  • Guin

    So is this Evan a trap?
