Game Informer Preview

I'm really happy that there is some intra-party banter. With the way the game seemed structured, i was afraid that individual stories would treat your characters like they didn't exist or something without a pre-set central narrative .

Thoughts on the demo.

I've completed the first chapters of Olberic and Primrose whom I plan to have in my final party along with Therion and Ophilia. Played a little of H'aanit's and Therion's prologues. I won't go over the Olberic and Prmirose since there isn't anything new for them here. The Demo itself offered 3 hours of play time before it asks for a final save to transfer into the retail version. You choose a new character to play by going to new game again.

Mostly going to talk about battle here.

Tempo and flow are good once you get used to the mechanics. The synergy between the Weakness and Boost systems work really well while still providing a nuance through individual characters and their skill-sets.

For example, becasue of how H'aanit's Capture and Beast Lore abilities battles with her feel a bit like something out of Pokemon where you are not only gonna be focused on defeating enemies, but catching them for their skills. Not does expand her abilities but the ways she can hit weakness (she limited to bows and axes) while simultaneously applying debuffs like blind without the need of a party. She also the best DPs among the cast and breaks enemies like nothing.

Contrast, Therion is much item dependent, but his a ability steal alleviates this and overall skill-set makes him incredibility powerful both in therms of strength and utility. Stealing get spell-stones much easier than other which grants to use AOEs to deal with encounters that have multiple enemies. HP Thief and SP Thief not only deal decent damage, but heal enough to sustain him easily. They deal two hits to making them even better when fighting with enemies weak to daggers because you don't have to use a Boost to wear down shields quickly.

I also love the fact that your HP and SP refill once you level up.

I especially like the sprites of the human enemies. Maybe the size, but there is just something about them...

Does anyone know when the Party Chat option first becomes available?



This article mentions that other party members will eventually chime in on each other's story events, but I'm currently in chapter 1 with five characters and have never seen that option once. I'm beginning to wonder whether your party members interact at all.

Not until the Ch 2 towns and storylines.

Man, I was just following the story (no sidetracking), but there is definitely a level jump from Chap 1 to Chap 2. Totally need to get some leveling done.

Finally got my copy today, but apparently, you cannot use save data from a demo of a different region. My main account is JP and I downloaded the demo on the JP eShop, but my EU copy simply doesn't detect the prologue save data I've done. Oh well.

I started with Cyrus and went through North, thus recruiting Ophilia, Haanit and on my way for Therion. The game feels really great so far, although I wish the sub quest system wasn't so obtuse, and characters arcs would be affected depending of certain travelers in your team.

But seriously, I'm not sure how some people could pretend the game is an indie game. I wish most indie games could look as nice as OT.

Kinda weird, considering every version of game has multiple langues installed in it.

The same people who think this game isn't worth $60 dollars for some baffling reason.

Forgot to comment on this earlier, but Lvs aren't actually as important as Gear. The main thing you get from Leveling is HP and SP, but stat growth is minor. Equipment has much more significant impact and carry through areas you under the recommended Lv for along with good strategy.

Before fighting Therion Chp2 boss, I did steal all of the 3% equipment in the town, but I ended up swallowing a lot of healing items during the boss fight. The suggested level is 22 and I was like 13~18 and it is still doable, but for the future's sake and for some freedom in strategy, I thought it would be better to just level-up.
