I want a fanfiction of Lilysse being a ghost and happily schlicking as she watches Arnice being pleased by Alushie and other cute girls in bed every night. A great Girls Only NTR scenario.

Is it really ntr if Lilysse died, and urged Arnice to move on after her death?

You posted this in the video game thread and it's still as retarded as ever.

>>2377485
Oh I'm sorry, Lilysse. Arnice prefers cute sexy winners like Alushie and not dead losers like you.
>>
>>2377488
Cringe.

What if Arnice became Nightlord and Lilysse merged with her?
When she masturbates, they're fingering each other.
When she gets it on with Alushie...

More Muveil and Alushe together is always a good thing.

>>
>>2379964
Don't remember if this was on the website, but that part about Arnice says she got the title of Nightlord after defeating him (her).
That should mean that "Arnice is the nightlord" has nothing to do with a magical state, but it's a title.

I'm starting to suspect the game'll give just some vague mention of Lillysse, so none of the first game's ending will be canon over the others.

So the English limited edition is a gimped version of the what they showed, right?
>>
>>2380205
What they showed is the Premium Box. English Limited Edition lacks the 3D action card, the DLC (?), the scent poster and the small character posters but has three posters that are only in the Collector's box. Also doesn't come with any retailer extra like keychains or extra posters.
>>
>>2380206
Also the English art book is tiny.

Alushe is supposed to save Muveil here, right? Does she even want to be saved from the sexy spider-demon waifu? I wouldn't blame her if she wanted to stick with Valderossa.
>>
>>2380234
So it was Valderossa who corrupted her? She even calls her "My Muveil" if I'm not mistaken. Muveil saying how Alushe should give in to the pleasure of demons now seems even more gay.

>>2380243
I'd have to guess that Valderossa is the one that corrupted Muveil sometime between the time Alushe last saw her at the Curia and after Alushe herself became a half-demon.

Valderossa probably had a lot of time to enjoy her new plaything before Alushe showed up to take her away.

Valderossa has to go. She's got too many advantages over Alushe in the competition for Muveil. There's no way Alushe can beat that rack and she only has one nice set of legs while Valderossa has several. There's also the problem with Valderossa probably being Muveil's first and who knows what kind of kinks Muveil has picked up thanks to her.

It's in October, there's still plenty of time. You can start worrying if there's still no preorder by end of September.

You don't. Liliana is the canon LI. "You" don't get to choose anything because Alushe is her own character.

>>2384456
As long as they don't make the bad ending canon, I don't care. I want to believe Arnice lived with Lilysse until her last day alive.

Then she dies at the end while saying: "We'll finally be together again."

>>2384464
I don't doubt that Liliana is the "main" heroine but what makes /u/ so certain there won't at least be special scenes if you get affection levels up with other Lilies?
>>
>>2386372
There will be "special" scenes but they will just be yuribaits and won't matter in the end like the devs confirmed.
>>
>>2385667
I wonder who the blindfolded woman is.
>>
>>2386480
I do believe it'll be like that yet, but remember that the dev said that a long time ago, before the long delay. Even the game's graphics evolved after that, so their vision might've changed, too.
>>
>>2386987
It wasn't that long ago they said that and altering how the story progresses is a much bigger change than you seem to think it is. They needed the extra time to finish their existing work, not scrap it to change the story.
>>
>>2386993
Well, they added one unplanned character since them.
Although she's probably useless, so whatever.
>>
>>2387001
They're too lazy to do actual character routes like in a visual novel. The lilies might get a few scenes, but the main story just doesn't revolve around them for them to get their own endings. The best you can hope for is Alushe teamed up with someone combating demons in one of the non-canon endings.
>>
>>2387003
Maybe 3P ending.
>>
>>2387001
She was always going to be there. Like a shopkeeper NPC. They just made her into a lily.

>>2387003
True but the game still features multiple endings like the first one.

Not that anon, but "faggot" is not an insult on 4chan and that post is universally understood as a lighthearted statement about doing his/her own thing. The fact that you thought it's aggressive, and the fact that you use cringily passive-aggressive reply, are proof of your newfaggotry. 4chan is not a hugbox like tumblr, so stop talking in a politically correct manner.

Why you cheating on Lily there Arnice with that bridal carry?

So that's their burst link huh. Alushe dual wielding her sword plus Arnice's and then Arnice pretty much laser beams them in darkness with the entire "I'm evil" vibe going around.

Still has some clipping problems I see. As well as floating ones.

Or Arnice has some interesting new powers.

>>2399623
Hopefully Arnice and Alushe's relationship ends up being more Mother/Daughter.

With the true end being Arnice taking Alushe and Liliana home to meet Lilysse.

>>2399655
Also Arnice having a pocket dimension where she keeps Lilysse forever young? Who knows what she learned for all that time.

Anyone know the specifics on all the north American editions coming out?

Do you mean rip NoA2 manga off nicoseiga? It's pretty easy compare to ripping Adachi to Shimamura off ganganonline. No programming skill required.

My waifu. Hopefully there will be at least one ending where her and Alushe team up together.

Dang, I know that you could screenshot them off the side but only manually. Yours look very nice and clean. There's a tool that can rip from gangan online if you still need it, I use it for comic walker and pixiv but I just tried with AdaShima, works well.

What's the name of that tool? I want to know how it can rip from gangan. That site go the extra mile to chop image up, so I can only think of using bot to take screenshots, or segmentation and edge matching. For the 2nd approach, I got the segmentation done, but my edge matching is still buggy, especially when there're big homogeneous color regions. Reverse engineering is pain in the ass, so I haven't tried it yet.

So I finished 100%ing the first game today. Was pretty disappointed to find out that the "bonus" ending was actually just the first one I saw, that happens if you beat Ludgert without unlocking the Sword of Jorth/reaching level 9.

In the end I guess N2 really is the best ending. Definitely the most fun to watch, anyway. The "true" ending is alright too, I guess.

Anyone else confused at the way the Reminiscences described Arnice's first 'friend' as having a heavy resemblance to Lilysse? I guess the only sensible conclusion is that she was also a relative of the Saint somehow, but both Arnice's initial reaction upon meeting Lilysse and the Night Lord's monologue about wanting to see what she'd do "if she met that girl" seemed like they were implying something more.
>>
>>2410904
The 'bonus' ending isn't that. You can adjust how the relationship is in the 'dream' after you beat the final-final boss and there's a fifth option and then you gotta beat her again to see it.
>>
>>2410905
The fifth option was what I was talking about. It's the ending you get if you beat the game without unlocking the Sword of Jorth. I got sidetracked by the fact that you could buy fetishes from the half-demon shop and ended up spending all my blood there while I was grinding my Servans, and I was curious about what would happen/if it was possible to beat the boss without going to level 9 so I made a secondary save file and that happened to be the first ending I saw.
>>
>>2410916
It isn't. And you can't see it unless you go to the 'dream' and change it to the highest affection level. You can only get it after you get the True End and even then, as I said you need to change the affection level yourself to get it.
>>
>>2410918
I'm telling you that's not the case, I saw the exact same ending twice: once when I beat the game at level 8, and the second time after I completed the post game, chose the highest affection level, and beat the game again as the last part of my 100% run.
>>
>>2410919
Tell me what's the ending then so I don't spoil you.
>>
>>2410920
Arnice takes the Nightlord's blue blood instead of Lilysse, tells her she can't be with her, and takes away her memories of them together. A year later Lilysse shows up at the Ende Hotel and Simon tells her a "fairy-tale" about their past.
>>
>>2410922
That's interesting. It's either a bug or 'highest affection' isn't really that because there's two answers that you skipped which raise it.

As for Arnice's first 'friend' a few people think that it's Christophorus. I forget how much time passes after the Night Lord dies and the beginning of the game but it's possible Lilysse is a relative of the first Saint. Then again, if she was I assume we would get more of an acknowledgement since you know, she's still alive.

I think they were wanting to just be cryptic and not expectant to make a sequel.
>>
>>2410929
That's a good point regarding the affection points. There are two things which make the bonus ending logically fitting as a special ending for beating the game 'too early':
- In the N1 ending, Arnice surrenders the Sword of Jorth over to Ludgert, which implies that reaching level 9 is a logical condition to unlocking the ending.
- The affection-raising answer for the post-level 9 dialogue is the point at which Arnice admits that Lilysse is the thing holding her back from achieving her maximum strength/power, and expresses that power is meaningless if she can no longer be human to be with Lilysse. The outcome of the 'bonus' ending could be considered the direct consequence of not observing that piece of dialogue.
>>
>>2411451
I really hate the way that question was presented in the game, since when you look at your possible responses it seems like the negative choice, but it's actually the one that raises your affection.

Checked some streams and it looks like devs did nothing to improve the challenge, the first game was too easy and now it looks even worse.
I mean, enemies do no damage (not even bosses) and players can just keep spamming burst attacks.
Don't remember the first game having difficulty settings, so I guess that's just how it is.

I'd rather play a good 15 hour game than a bad or mediocre 50+ hour game. With the former there's usually a lot more depth in the gameplay that keeps me coming back for more and can encourage me to get better and experiment with stuff, while the latter can become tedious, and once you're done you're done.

Given NOA 2 is a game with multiple routes, the former sounds far better for it.

There probably is. The player on that run only maxed out Liliana and Ruenheid's affection. On the bad end run posted earlier I don't think he had anyone maxed out or if he did it was just Liliana. I'm guessing maxing out all the girls affection unlocks the true ending.
>>
>>2417659
No kisses this time around. Or heartfelt confessions. Just more fanservice and tits.
Them killing the yuri pairing from the first game is just an extra salt in the wound.

Gust is really incompetent.
>>
>>2417667
Is that even possible in only one playthrough?
>>
>>2417667
So Aluche has to bloom all the lilies to get all naked with the other girls for best end?
>>
>>2417668
Have you seen every possible ending to say that with such decisiveness?
>>
>>2417673
>>2417696
It's just a guess from what I've seen so far. It makes sense though going off what's been shown with the other endings.

Also since Arnice is coming up a lot here's the last leg of the quest chain for recruiting her. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvfJQ5q2Iuw
>>
>>2417715
What happened to Lilysse anyway? Was that her portrait in the Nightlord's abode? Did Arnice fall to the darkness after losing her ring inscribed with the initials of both her and Lilysse, or when she lost Lilysse?
>>
>>2417668
>Aluche potentially with each of the main girls longingly stare into each others' eyes while totally naked
I would think that the obvious implication of this is that they go waaay further than kisses, but it all happens offscreen because an Adult Only rating is unacceptable.
>>
>>2417717
People kept saying the game is few hundred years after the first, unless something else happened she would be dead by now.
>>
>>2417655
What a shit ending. The gameplay is once again underwhelming and if the endings are also the same this game won't be even worth 20$ .

>>2417918

>>
>>2417933
They pussied out and killed off Lilysse so they can make a bland Neptunia ripoff with ditzy and shallow yuribait fanservice with a bunch of characters instead of focusing on a romantic pair. They missed the mark.

>genius!
>>
>>2417950
>>well, let's put tons of girls teasing the MC with only one bland love interest

That's the one thing that really hurts the game for me. The only thing stopping Liliana from being my least favorite girl is the fact that Eleanor exists. I can kind of get past the game's other faults, but I'm always going to be salty over Liliana being the the sole, boring love interest. Not even indecent swimsuits can make up for that.

It's less explicit than the first game, which was already tame as it is but it was still romantic and focused on two girls. NoA2 has no kisses, no confessions, just skinship fanservice. The fact that it's not even focused on a pair anymore but dispersed on other undeveloped big tittied cardboard cutouts that aren't even romantic interests makes it even worse. It pains me to say this but Valkyrie Drive Bikkhuni at least paired off side girls with each other and gave us multiple OTPs. NoA2 just makes a shitty irrelevant cast that doesn't even go full yuri with anybody. It's basically like Neptunia which only has baiting and the waifus remain "pure" for the waifufags.

Unromantic, unfocused, bland and just overall fucking trash that completely missed the charm of the first game. Actually scratch that, it didn't just miss the charm of the first game, it retroactively ruins it by killing off Lilysse and giving Arnice another amnesia. After all that bullshit about her precious memories.

I would've preferred no sequel at all.

I wouldn't be surprised if there is already an NoA3 in production. KT seems to be pushing Gust to produce. I believe Atelier has basically become an annual franchise now.

She was held hostage by the Queen of the Moon to make Arnice surrender. As part of torture, Arnice was told she was killed and that was what made Arnice go berserk. However, Lilysse had actually managed to escape and had left her ring and a hidden letter for Arnice to find. Arnice will go look for her after the Queen of the Moon is defeated.

I don't know far ahead it's supposed to be set, but I'm certainly not making up the spoiler.

In the final scene Arnice is warning Aluche to be prepared emotionally for the fact they age far slower than their partners, but it doesn't sound like so much time has passed that Lilysee would have died but it does sound like Arnice has experienced seeing her getting old.
>>
>>2418376
So there's stuff to be done after the game is finished, kind of like in the first game? That'd be nice.

I see that NoA 2 is also following Akai Ito/Aoi Shiro's "blood sucking scenes are stand-ins for sex" formula. In the first game Arnice makes Lilysse "hers" by biting into her.

Vampires are cool and all, but I'd like to see a lesbian succubus/demon girl corrupting another girl into one too for a change.

Arnice is kind of close seeing how she's half-demon and has a demon form, but it's not the same (especially since she doesn't like being a demon). It needs to be a full time demon girl with permanent horns and tail and red/purple/blue skin etc.

True End?
>>
>>2418646
What happened to Aluche and Liliana in this version?
>>
>>2418669
I think that the aftermath of the normal ending. Like in NoA1 you have the default ending where Lilysse gets an amnesia and leaves the island after Arnice kisses her and in the True Ending it just continues on and it shows how she comes back to the island to meet Arnice once again.
>>
>>2418673

>I think everyone's talking about waiting for the time when both of them return or something.
Yep, they were. NoA1 had a relatively conclusive ending but NoA2 ends on a cliffhanger. Seems like they already have plans for a sequel. They're probably expecting it to sell even more than NoA1.

Well, Gandalf was pretty darn flexible.

In all seriousness, Arnice was likely talking about some distinct future. She is certainly thinking ahead.
>>
>>2418802
She just bashfully avoided giving a proper answer.
>>
>>2418811
Gandalf has several advantages:
Gandalf is a rugged wizard who spends most of his time travelling the country side and so has got to be quite physically fit. Not to mention he is quite capable in melee combat himself.
Gandalf belongs to a race that lives thousands of years so he's not really that old as you might think.
Males don't suffer from osteoporosis as early as women.
Also magic.

On the other hand, Lilysse has the advantage of being 3d animu bishoujo, which means even when she's really old, she'll just have silver hair (she'll match Arnice's) while maintaining her big tits and comfy ass and not have a single wrinkle or skin discolouration, nor stoop lower from worsening spinal problems.
But come to think of it, she's a bloody powerful cleric, surely she knows some magic to keep herself healthy and looking youthful at the very least.
Unless she didn't specialize in healing/life magic and pursued the deepest secrets of lesbomancy instead.
>>
>>2418827
Now I want NoA3 with playable Arnice and Lilysse as her lily rescuing Alushe and Liliana from wherever they've gone
>>
>>2418816
The stuttering doesn't help Aluche's case of the gay for Lilliana.

Just admit it and get it over with, Aluche. Arnice admitted that she's in love with Lilysse, after all.
>>
>>2418827
> thousands of years
More like forever, his race is literally angel.
>>
>>2418842
That kind of response is cuter than admitting it. The Japanese understand that embarrassment is treating something with intimate significance.
>>
>>2418849
It also means that Aluche is a beta lesbian. Arnice needs to teach the young blood how to get her girl.

This is why the sequel was quickly announced. It was simply successful.

Now let's compare that to other Gust games:

Rorona: 43k
Totori: 53k
Meruru: 82k
Ayesha: 60k
Escha: 57k
Shallie: 43k

>>2420158
>games sells more as it get gayer
>sales fall when it gets more het

I wish Gust wasn't stupid.
>>
>>2420174
I know right, Sophie and Meruru have the most yuri and coincidentally they're the best selling ones as well.
>>
>>2419888
I'm disappointed in how she plays. She relies heavily on support attacks as it were. The wood golem boosting her (because apparently she can't jump) the toy soldiers rushing an enemy. Not to mention the Bravery system is stupid, it basically invalidates your need to level.
>>
>>2420197
Summoning servans is a signature mechanic of her game so they had to incorporate that into her moveset. Giving her regular combos and making a special unique ability to summon would be too much work for a single character.
>>
>>2420200
I know and I'm not opposed to having Servans be in the combos, but I would've liked at least them not to be in all of them. It's not fun to play when you always have a delay and you get caught off-guard because you miscalculated and can't dodge-cancel. That's why Zhou Tai is more or less my preferred character in DW.

That is kind of appropriate in a funny way though since NoA has no jump button and she only jumps as part of the sword/daggers launcher combo. I can't count the amount of times I set off a magic attack by wanting to jump and reflexively pressing X.
>>
>>2420221
In that game sure. In Warriors All-Stars she can jump freely. When funny interferes with gameplay then they've screwed up.

I was also looking forward so much to better gameplay, but at this point I prefer NoA's combat for her, cause at least you had different weapons to chain.
>>
>>2420175
The het game market is flooded in Japan, so there's much more competition there. Meanwhile the yuri game market is very niche, so Gust has a chance to get a majority of the sales for that.

That's the only thing that bums me out about the game (right now). The thing I wanted the most when I heard Arnice was going to be in teh game was for her to be like Caim in Drakengard 2.

"Fuck the world, I don't care what the consequences are, I just want to be reunited with Lilyesse."

Nope, first game's "confession" was also shy about it. 2 also features lots of heartfelt moments between Liliana and Alushe.

It's simply a yuri game and as a sequel it did not harm the first one either seeing how Lilysse is very much alive.

There's still room for some recoupment.

Nights of Azure launched at 79,000.
http://gematsu.com/2015/10/media-create-sales-92815-10415

But their financial report claimed total sales figures at 150,000.
http://www.siliconera.com/2015/11/02/koei-tecmos-dead-or-alive-5-core-fighters-downloaded-4-million-times-nights-of-azure-sold-150000-copies-in-asia/

Perhaps Nights of Azure 2 can still make it to 43,000 copies eventually, which puts it par with Blue Reflection at least.

Truth be told, after watching a series of video walkthroughs, the game seems shorter, and packs less of a punch. While the Yuri is there (The stuff involving Arnice talking her feelings for Lilysee and asking Alushie about her's was great, per anon translating + the vampire "Yuri harem" claiming scenes), it's feels less personal in a way. But I don't really understand moon, so might be wrong.

1) The change of character harms them. Arnice has a little charisma this new girl nothing remarkable, (it seems less interesting the cast of NOA2 only highlights Ruenheid and muviel)
2) did not optimize the gameplay, and retouched the lilies in weapons, nothing new in terms of skills
3) the concept of a new story without binding NOA did not help much
They made this game fast taking advantage of the sales of the first but you see the results.

if you compared it to other games from gust/KT small division/subsidiaries, the first game are doing great, KT even state that NoA was their major title
>>
>>2421999
Maybe, who knows. Things are looking grim. Gust is a small team and attempting to make three games at once was a costly mistake.

Hopefully they take small bites in the future and just focus on the development on a single game at the time.
>>
>>2421981
>>2422009
Opening weeks are very important and NoA2 is the worst selling Gust game since KT acquired them. Even if they reach 50k in a couple of months it will still pale in comparison to everything in their library. Blue Reflection sold more than Firis and KT still came out and said it under performed.

Despite NoA2 ending on a cliffhanger I doubt they'll be making a third one now. They'll only be able to do it if they somehow recover/stay afloat.
>>
>>2422010
Yeah. They should have focused on making a really good sequel to Nights of Azure 1, taking in account all the things people liked and did not like in the first one.

Instead, everything bombed. And Nights of Azure was an interesting IP with room for exploration to boot. Even managing to compete with some of usual het stuff >>2422009
>>
>>2422018
Forgot to add, and ditch Blue Reflection. Just focus on Nights of Azure 2.
>>
>>2421942
Guess people didn't like the girls they kept adding, the new main couple and the 10 months delay for nothing.
>>
>>2422042
The new girls they added after the main trio and arnice look pretty bad.
>>
>>2422050
I liked Arnice. She was a pretty alright MC.

Did they really want to go the Senran Kagura way and appeal to the other waifuretards to sell this game?

I'll never understand what's mentally wrong with people like this and if it's linked to their incredibly poor language skills.
>>
Well, I'll still buy it for the PC when it comes on October 24th. Neptune games got a nice boost from the westerners so maybe NoA is salvageable too, especially when the release dates are so close.
>>
>>2422086
At least mod wiped him and now he's too busy shitting up /v/ instead.
>>
Why would anybody waste several hours of their life shitposting a small game like this one? Is this Mugino acting out his revenge against /u/?
>>
>>2422097
It honestly feels like Mugino. And judging by his comments it seems that he really likes Arnice and is upset about her not being the MC and being around Alushe instead of Lilysse.
>>
>>2422087
There was lots of shitposting before the western release of the first game too and once again I'll wait for my copy to come and make up my own mind.
>>
>>2422101
Even after the western release NoA therad had a shitposter. It's weird.
>>
Anyone here who knows Moonspeak care to translate the lyrics for Eve?

Amazing.

>>2422229
Did Arnice's breasts get even bigger?
>>
>>2422231
Doesn't seem like it to me. The outfit is just more revealing.
>>
>>2422233
They probably did get bigger, though. Who's to say Lilysse hasn't been engaging in some skinship with Arnice after the first game's conclusion?
>>

>The new girls they added after the main trio and arnice look pretty bad.
Yeah, the first part was better cause it focused on two main characters and their relationship, now even if in this we would get trio it wouldn't be bad, but adding more girls to pair up as Lilies gave it less impact as expected.

It would be really better as a strong love triangle story than what we got.
>>
>>2422285
Or not 15 hours (allegedly). Multiple pairings and protagonists would be nice too.
>>
>>2422047
I can't agree with that since Camilla, Muveil, and Veruschka were my three favorites.

>>2422290
I guess side pairings could have been MuveilxCamilla (They do have history of some kind) and VeruschkaxRuenheid (Both a part of the Lourdes Order).

Well, if making a third game involves making the franchise a het game to "save" it,, I'd much rather NoA2's cliffhanger remain unresolved and the series lay dormant.

A third game would probably be about Arnice searching for Lilysse. This is probably the best way to go to try to save the franchise since it can at least focus on the main couple that lead the first game which is one of Gust's best sellers. That and double down on quality control and actually get some staff that know how to make a good action game.
>>
>>2422353
If the westerners save it or at least help them break even I'm certain they'll attempt to finalize the trilogy. This time however they probably won't be trying out experimental new IPs at the same time like BR.
>>
>>2422359
>If the westerners save it or at least help them break even I'm certain they'll attempt to finalize the trilogy.

An arduous task though. NoA2 sold less across all platforms than NoA did for just the Vita in Japan week one. NoA2 wasn't just coming in with its own problems. It was being weighed down further by Gust's growing reputation as a kusoge dev. I feel like a third game has to be made as an effort to win back lost fans, but I doubt it'll happen. And even if it did Gust would find a way to fuck up again sadly.
>>
>>2422412
>t was being weighed down further by Gust's growing reputation as a kusoge dev.
Yeah I agree. If NoA2 released before Firis and BR like they first announced before all the delays it would've fared much better. They spread themselves way too thin over the three ambitious games and all of them ended up unoptimized and short because of that.

However NoA2 doesn't need 100k sales like NoA1 to be successful. NoA1 was already cheap on its own and its crazy good success was big enough to fund an entirely new IP. This gave Gust a harmful confidence.

Like I said here >>2422181 NoA1's 150k milestone in three months was solely from the Asian market but this time around they're also releasing an overseas version so I'm hoping westerners can contribute as much as the other Asian countries did for the first game.
>>
>>2422421
>Yeah I agree. If NoA2 released before Firis and BR like they first announced before all the delays it would've fared much better. They spread themselves way too thin over the three ambitious games and all of them ended up unoptimized and short because of that.

I agree with both of these. I think the delay was a real killer. NoA2 had good momentum and build up in regards to its advertising heading into its release date and the delay just brought it all to a crashing halt. I also believe at some point Gust has to make a hard decision regarding its Vita ports. They appeared to have doubled down on shoring up the quality of NoA2's Vita port and despite their efforts the drop in sales was precipitous for the Vita version. I can't claim to know the costs for a Vita port for a game like NoA2, but if it was going to flop that badly surely the money and manpower could have been applied elsewhere.
>>
>>2422494
After Firis' buggy launch and BR underperforming, I think people became skeptical that Gust can deliver with NoA2. That the game gets delayed not just once but twice just make it obvious Gust can't handle developing 3 games at once.
>>
>>2422525
>I think people became skeptical that Gust can deliver with NoA2.

Even though I wanted NoA2 to succeed I'm guilty of this. I remember when the Switch port was announced. I was seriously considering going for NSW version instead of the PS4 version, but then I started thinking back to all the frame drops in the previous trailers and wondered if I could really trust Gust to not fuck up the port. I doubt I'm the only one who thought this judging by the NSW port's sales.
>>
>>2422532
I don't know if porting to Switch hurts the game since they have to put work in porting instead of making the game better or the decision to port was because they're already aware they can't deliver and the game will underperform.

On an unrelated note, has the trophy list been posted somewhere?
>>
>>2422548
It failed because. Of fan survice and same story

Ouch. Game tanks so now they're whoring out Alushe. Wouldn't mind the tapestry that features Alushe with Liliana and the punching bag though.
>>
>>2423085
I wouldn't have thought of Alushe as a big butt girl, but I guess she is the least busty out of the trio.
>>
>>2423105
I think they probably did it for shits and giggles than for anything else.
>>
>>2423085
Do they realize first game sold better without the need to do this kind of shit?
Well, fuck them. They choose to appeal to the wrong crowd, and they'll die because they're stupid.

30k? Did something happen?
I remember some japanese preorder charts posted on /v/ from weeks ago and this game had like 50k across all platforms.
>>
>>2423367
>30k? Did something happen?

With all of Gust's previous fuck ups and let downs eventually they were going to take a hit and it just happened to be now.
>>
>>2423379
It wasn't just this game, just from my experience:

>ROTK13 with PUK still fall short of ROTK10 without PUK
>DW8E is worse than DW7E

I don't know what's up with KT and sequels.
>>
>>2423367
Maybe they saw that swimsuit teaser where Arnice's hand clips through Aluche's torso and decided that they were going to get some serious QUALITY and cancelled.
