Who says JRPGs are dead? Take a look at some of the best games of 2013: Fire Emblem: Awakening, Ni no Kuni, Shin Megami Tensei 4, Etrian Odyssey 4...
It's no secret I'm a fan of the Shin Megami Tensei (SMT) series. Nocturne, the Digital Devil Saga, Persona 3 and 4; I consider these games to be not only among the best JRPGs I've played, but among my favourite games of all time. That's not to say I wasn't disappointed/shocked when I heard numero quattro was for 3DS, and used 2D sprites. Really? 2D sprites, on a console that does 3D? I still trusted Atlus enough to overlook these "mistakes", and crossed my fingers as I pre-ordered my copy.
Desolate landscape? Check.
Good news, everyone! Zelda 3DS is coming!
Nintendo greatness on the way
Oh my. You'll have to excuse me here, because I am still in shock.
Enjoy your 3D gaming in 2D!
It seems the steaming turd that was, is, and shall remain to be Ninja Gaiden 3 was not enough to convince Tecmo Koei they couldn't make a decent Ninja Gaiden game without Tomonobu Itagaki. Instead, Yaiba Ninja GaidenBall Z is on the table. Starring Yaiba, some random ninja that was killed by Ryu Hayabusa. So it's basically a side-story to Ninja Gaiden. A side story to Ninja Side-Story. With a Z? Can it get any worse? Sadly, yes. Just add zombies.
Itagaki-san must be rolling in his sunglasses
