    the ds Valkyrie profile worth playing. I think its way better then FFT then again I'm in the minority apparently that thinks FFT is actually the the worst tsrpg besides phantom brave I played. Games like vanguard bandits and hog of wars were far more entertaining.

    A future Switch purchase is likely to happen in 2019 in stead of 2022.

    Octopath Traveler has a WW release date: July 13.


    For people that speak Japanese, SaGa Scarlet Grace is also coming to Switch. A localization seems likely, now.

    [​IMG] :bounce::bounce::bounce: Assuming it's still doesn't get a translation (unlikely as it's coming to steam) I can at least translate the mobiles versions.

    Edit: not a straight of port. It will be an enhanced version called saga scarlet grace ambition of scarlet, and will have new music, bosses, characters and probably might remove that super weird loading screen during combat.

    Port for iOS and Android coming this Spring in Japan: http://www.valkyrieprofile.com/LENNETH/index.html



    Looks like a straight port with faithful (unlike Chrono Trigger) hi-res UI.

    It sounds like it will have hand made 24 dungeons AND procedurally generated dungeons.

    that game looks interesting.

    from what im reading in that post above then the 24 dungeon levels are hand-made with an additional set of ((infinite!!)) dungeon levels available inside the infinite dungeon part of the game right (question mark here)

    IF that is how it is then there is hope the game might be worth playing!!!

    however if all dungeon levels are proc-generated then it will be shit.

    I think one of them is Mary Skelter because they often work with Idea Factory.
