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.
>>
she is perfect, post more please

>you can switch as you please.
Oh okay. I thought the new shitty animu as fuck artstyle was a forced thing.
Still puzzles me why they did that in the first place.
>>
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.
>>
>>323422770
Is it any good though? I don't think any of the vita dungeon crawlers have beaten EO for me yet
>>
>>323423710
It sold like garbage so they quickly added moe to try and sell some more copies this time around
>>
>>323422770
Is there anywhere I can see the difference in art?

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.
>>
>>323422770
What's the gameplay like?
>>
>>323425869
Huh, the original art looks way better and more detailed though the cute style on the bottom's not bad either.

I'm assuming the girl on the left is the MC?
>>
>>323425869
>there are people who likes bottom artstyle more
>>
>>323426021
Along the lines of Wizardry.
>>
>>323425869

Bottom looks better.
I swear you people will whine about anything...
>>
>>323425869
Is bottom by the Demon Gaze guy?
>>
>>323425000
I've heard nothing but good things about it and Experience are devs known for making good dungeon crawlers

Now I want a third artstyle where she has both shoulder guards.
>>
>>323425869
Am I seeing things or does the older artstyle seem reminiscent of Dragon's Crown?
>>
>>323422770
Will probably get it when it comes to our shores.
>>
>>323426486
I believe you are seeing things, the only reminiscent thing could be the coloring style which is hardly something George Kamitani is the only artist known to use it.
>>
>>323426486
You're seeing things.
>>
>>323422770

>she is way more loli looking in the concept art compared to the release promo art

huh, odd
>>
>>323426787
Those are art of the same character by different people. You get to choose between the art styles.
>>
>>323426919

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.
>>
>>323422770
Why know Ps4 release as well?
>>
>>323427038
Right is actually the new art style, see >>323425869

>>323426214
Yes.

Experience developed both games.

When will Japan stop with this shit it's so boring and overdone
>>
>>323425869
Faces look much better. Lazy as fuck detail though.
>>
>>323427078
Dunno, it originally was a 360 and PC game, then it got a Vita release, now it is getting a Boner release, PS4 may happen sometime in the future.
>>
>>323427094

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.
>>
>>323427268

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
>>
>>323427239
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.
>>
>>323427239
>Vita
All the retarded waifufag own one and they'll eat the new artstyle
>>
>>
>>323427523
Top is definitely better.
>>
>>323427523
Bottom looks like a Kyoani MC

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.
>>
>>323427738
And the PC version?
>>
>>323427523
For reference the original artist is Yoko Tsukamoto and the new artist is En Okishiji, the Demon Gaze dude.
>>
>>323427784
Not sure, it hasn't even been officialy announced yet, it is another ESRB rating leak.

Can't believe NISA might do something better than others in this case, Vita is getting a nice physical limited edtion while Bone (and probably PC too) is download only.

Cool cutscenes but what does the actual game look like?
I just played the Odin Sphere PS4 demo and holy shit that game looks godlike.
I should have played the original.

Isn't this game was rumoured to release on PC ?
>>
>>323428280
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.
>>
>>323428360
So like Wizardry?
I'll keep an eye on it but I can never really get into those kinds of games.

Nah, i'll import it whenever i want to start it

Not every dungeon crawler needs to look like Wizardry.

>>323428530
Boner version is being handled by the developer itself.

No physical release on this case though.
>>
>>
>>323428596
Well Wizardry has prescedence so many will take inspiration from it.
>>
The new artwork is shit, absolute SHIT.

I actually feel sorry for Tsukamoto, seeing his original artwork absolutely bastardized like that.
>>
>>323428473
Pretty much just like Wizardry, yes.
>>
>>323428809
Why would you be angry when its optional?
Do you hate when people have options?
>>
Wait, can you choose the artworks type or we are locked with the bottom version ?
>>
>>323428809
His style is still in the game, and he will always be "the original one".

Also the coverart still features his artwork.
>>
>>323428858
You should get better reading comprehension.
>>
>>323428896
Both will be in the localized version
>>
>>323428896
You can choose, the original japanese releases however were separate games.
>>

How is anything bastardized when the original is still there and completely untouched?

You get to choose

I'm in physical fucking pain from looking at that
>>
>>323422770
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.
>>
>>323429228
For it being released in English also on PC.
>>
>>323429141
Did they start burning old copies of the divine comedy in all libraries and replacing them with a synopsis of that game?
>>
>>323429316
NISA isn't doing the bone version. Experience is self publishing it on the bone
>>
>>323429370
A PC version got rated on ESRB. There has been no word from NISA about a PC version though.
>>
>>323429316
>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.

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.

Also he is a fixed human character, only random non-important guild members can be of other races. His equipment range is far greater than other human characters though.

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.

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
>>
>>323427363
this.

>>323432503
Grimrock is fun but it's not turn based and different from your typical dungeon crawler
>>
>>323432503
If you didn't like EO then there's a fair chance you won't like any dungeon crawler, but might as well try out SMT Strange Journey, it's an emulatable DS game.

Will there really be a PC release? I was bummed as fuck when I heard they were just releasing it on vita.

If you've got a 3DS, Devil Summoner Soul Hackers is pretty good as an intro to dungeon crawlers, so is Persona 1 PSP
