Anyone on /v/ going to get the western release of Stranger of Sword city?
It's getting a vita and xbone release in the west, and there appears to be a PC version being brought over too.
Apparently it's a really tough dungeon crawler with permadeath mechanics.
Also new artstyles you can switch as you please.
I'm interested in it, though I have yet to finish Dungeon Travelers 2. DT2 has a ridiculous amount of content.
It's been nice seeing some dungeon crawlers actually getting localized lately.
Original above, reworked below, same characters; the localized version allows you to change it between whatever suits you, the nip versions were separate games so this is an exclusive localized feature.
>Bottom looks better.
Dude just no, I am a pretty big weeb but even I can´t say that with a straight face
I guess I'll play it with the newer art style, it seems way more serious and less pander-y than the old one, I like anime but that weeb shit artstyle is obnoxious and feels like a parody.
I have no interest in a game with those mechanics but i must say that art work looks really good. School girl outfits with armor pieces on top is kind of stupid but it actually looks really neat and is a style i'd like to play a game of.
what in the flying fuck, holy shit I can't believe they forgo their artstyle for something more appealing to manchildren, this is ridiculous, this right here is why japanese games lost the respect and recognition they had in this industry, weebshit is exactly what they are turning this game into, it looked really detailed and unique before, you could see it was japanese but they didn't overdo it and emphasized on otherwordly themes that mesh well with the concept of normal humans reaching a fantastic world, now it's just generic shit, ok that I can switch the artstyle, but the whole concept of them having to re-draw everything to suit pathetic losers makes me mad as a fellow artist myself, if someone doesn't like my art I tell hm to fuck himself, the world is big and there's plenty of people that like different styles.
I'm assuming the change was made to allow for more sales but I bet my fucking ass it tanked because it was put on a fucking xbox, seriously who thought that would be a good idea.
she is a normal schoolgirl that got meshed with a fantasy world so her clothes are a merge of the two worlds, its symbolic of her predicament, merging something known and human like a school outfit with fucking pauldrons and shit
Bone might be to appease the nips who had a 360, Stranger of Sword City was first released on 360 then it spread over other plataforms.
PC and Vita goes without saying, they are crawling with Dungeon Crawlers.
I hope the different hands on localization won't fuck things up, I'm looking at NISA of course.
Boner version will be localized by Experience itself.
Meanwhile NISA will be handling the Vita.
I actually meant the game coding itself though, which NISA is known for fucking up during localizations.
In terms of package they did really well since the Boner version is Digital Only.
It's a Dungeon Crawler, the character profiles are cardboard cutouts who talk to each other in Visual Novel style.
The battle screen is like this, and the Dungeon Crawling in 1rd Person 3D maps.
Like a dungeon crawler
Basically confirmed due ESRB's rating, just need an official announcement.
The new artwork is shit, absolute SHIT.
I actually feel sorry for Tsukamoto, seeing his original artwork absolutely bastardized like that.
You get to choose
I'm going to give you an example.
Take from this what you will.
Not unless the xbone version gets a physical release. Pretty stupid nis will do avita version, but no bone. It would really stand out on the platform.
Guess I'll wait and see if a Chinese release has the translation.
>Pretty stupid nis will do avita version, but no bone.
Has NISA ever even worked for something on Bone yet?
Maybe they just didn't want to do it and Experience did it themselves.
I guess that's better than nothing. Pic most likely related.
Nope, I don't think they did anything on 360 either.
I see.. What a shame. I would pay a premium for a physical release, but that's not likely given this companies size.
Why's she a JK? Doesn't look like she's the POV character
If you unironically like the tryhard grimdark artstyle or the kawaii desu moeshit artstyle over the other and don't dislike both, then you need to fuck off to NeoGAF and /vitagen/ respectively.
The POV character is a random human that came from our world, there is a guild composed of "Strangers" from other worlds, she is a Main Character from the same guild as you the player, her name is Riu/Liu Tsukisada.
Riu is the most important character after the Player Character.
I'll get it for PC. I like Wizardry like games.
You can compose your party entirely of created characters with no personality yes, but the Strangers Guild have 6 members with actual speaking roles that you can also select, and there are more guilds in the game.
Yes there is quite the plot, serious even, many endings to boot.
I couldn't get into the first Etrian Odyssey when I tried a few years ago. Are there any dungeon crawlers you'd recommend that are playable or emulatable on pc? I might give EO another shot, or I could always try out Grimrock, but I'm curious if you'd recommend something else for a filthy casual
