    The mobile game is completely separate from the remake. Different developers as far as I can see, and probably different gameplay.

    The remake also doesn't have a crossover with Yu Yu Hakusho (for some reason).

    I thought they had done it so that you could switch back to the old models? Might give it a run and see....

    Did they not do okay with Dragon Quest XI? Will they not make another at some point with turn-based mechanics?

    No, just the old environments, portraits, and music. For some fucked up reason, they couldn't just add the battlefield and combat sprites too.

    I still don't see how these guys are still just being paid for promo games, someone hand them a couple mil and a make a full fledged 30 hour metroidvania. Maybe even more, their gameplay is so pristine.

    Yeah, picked up Touhou Luna Nights despite having not played Touhou or knowing much about it before and genuinely had fun before the game suddenly ended, it feels like the developers have talent and could make something truly great or fun, but are doing short games and being fanboys in a way picking franchises they probably like.

    Just giving a minor PSA about Final Fantasy Type-0 in case anyone is interested in playing it someday:

    Currently the cutscenes are broken in Windows 10 since version 18xx, the codec compatability broke so the game cutscenes show only a blank screen until you mass a button to skip them, OR the game will simply crash on you when a cutscene triggers. In my case it was the blank screen.

    Some people reported that installing K-Lite Codec pack fixed it for them but it didn't for me, your mileage may vary. If you want to play the PC version the *only* way to play it now is with an older version of Windows 10, one before the 18xx version rollouts, or simply be on another edition of Windows entirely.

    I'm currently on a quest to try to play all of the FFs I never played, so this is amusing to me because just last week I was on Windows 10 ver. 17xx and then decided to update in order to be able to use Game Pass (forces you to update or the App won't run); so If I'd bothered to play this earlier in time I wouldn't've had a problem.

    ...needless to say it is highly doubtful this will ever get fixed officially, so unless the next Windows 10 updates magically fix this the game will remain unplayable on Windows 10 for the rest of time.

    EDIT: BTW, you can check your Windows version by typing "winver" (without quotes) in a run command box (win key + R).

    Yes I loved the original look of (and generally the game) Der Langrisser - this new look however looks amateurish unfortunately. Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth all the way even if it is only going to be 6 hours long....

    You can switch most (some?) of the graphics to the original through a setting in-game, from what I read on the reviews.

    Because yeah, they is some ugly as fuck drawings. Poor Satoshi would be rolling in his grave.

    I guess its Compile Hearts most popular IP. There is really no "popular numbered series" other than Neptunia for Compile Hearts

    Trails of Cold Steel 4 (Europe and US version) is not in that video and should be.

    For something different, I was looking forward to Tales of Arise...but maybe that is no longer coming out this year?

    Man, i still have to play any of those games, but it seems like a good series, i also notice there is an ongoing anime, how is that?

    It does seem to be a sequel to a game which worries me as i know nothing about Sakura Wars...also haven't heard many people talking about it, but that doesn't mean much, i am not seeing a lot of anime places talking constantly about Hamefura as it's going on and that show is charming and awesome as hell, so good stuff sometimes just slips by.
