Aaaaaaaaaah, beaten by the prof and 10 minutes !

WTF !?

It's a SIMULATION RPG.

Released around may.
MONOLITH SOFT IS DOING IT. NOoooooooooooooo !!!!

It's done at 70%.
The guy who made the illust of Tekken 4 and CALIBU 2 is making the illustration. Remember Raphael. Production IG is doing the opening.
The heroes are 有栖零児 and シャオムウ (who !?)

More than 200 characters should appear (finally, for a character game, a sim could be better than a fighter...)
The figths are simple.

Haa beatcha! Though you've wrote a lot more than me. Thumbs up!

And talk about illustrations, fans of Kim Hyung-tae should wait up for the next issue of Arcadia magazine since he's doing the cover for it, featuring the female characters in Tekken 5 (including the panda).

In the first scan, who's the guy with the black and white hair with the blonde girl next to him (the ones above the KOS-MOS screenshot and the Cammy screenshot)? Please tell me those are two Namco characters and not the Capcom characters I immediately thought they were...

This may be more original than other past works (Specially Capcom ones), but it's still an example of lazyness: They're using their old characters, so the effort of thinking of new ones for a game is gone.

However, now that it's being done, I hope it comes out as a great game.

That's the very point of the game. Nobody is interested into playing a game with 150 unknown character (radi...); and you can't compete with Nippon Ichi in the customization. Therefore, Monolith prefers to compete with Banpresto and their Super Robot Taisen series.

If it is any good, it will be an accident. We are all going to buy it because of the characters, not because of the game; therefore the emphasis will be put on the characters and not on the game.
In other words, they will try to make a long game with tons of characters rather than a shorter but better, deeper game. Because that's what the players interested in the game want.

The only thing we can hope for is that it will be better than the Dynamic crossover game; anything better will be a bonus.

I'm curious if they are going to make a series out of it if it works, like the Super Robot franchise...

There's a certain kind of fun that can only come from crossovers between series. New X-Men vs. Original X-Men. Batman vs. Superman. Nameless Shin Megami Tensei Kid vs. Dante. Marona vs. Laharl (OMG PRINNIES!). "Snake, your mission... is to capture all the monkeys."

It's pathetically easy for the company that makes the crossover, but it's tons of fun for us, because it's usually either hilarious or cool, but always in a very tongue-in-cheek, campy way.

Shelve your jaded gamer cynicism, dammit! It's fun! It's stupid and a little lame, but it's fun!

Wolverine wasn't one of the original X-Men.

Being a fan of the characters and Super Robot Wars I think this game is the greatest single thing Japan can produce... at least until Phantom Kingdom hits.

I've been reading too many old X-Men comics and I keep thinking that people will know what I mean. In the trade paperbacks from the time around Giant Size X-Men, it seems like every other issue somehow features the Storm/Nightcrawler/Wolverine/Colossus/etc. team going up against the original X-Men... in their original uniforms. They've been brainwashed, or they're figments of the imagination, or they're evil robots, or something. It's different every time, but it's always stupid, and it's always kind of fun.

Oh no ! I just noticed something !
Not only this isn't her Pockefi sprite, but there is another picture where she is on the map, in pseudo 3D...
WHICH MEANS SHE HAS BEEN REDRAWN TWICE !

If I can rephrase it, she has gotten as many sets of sprites for one game as she received for appearing in the other 11 games she's been in.

What Iggy said is true...I'm interested in the game because of the characters, but I wouldn't be interested, or rather, I'd be interested but also irritated if there wasn't at least a tiny sliver of trust that the game will be at least...playably good.

After all, the SRW games are by Banpresto, who from my experience, aren't good game makers. Even if you're jaded and angry at the world, I doubt you'll think that Banpresto is better than Capcom or Namco.

The SRW games actually have a pretty decent system, though, so if someone said that the game would be as good as SRW, I'd be satisfied. The only thing that I can hope for is that the game won't have the same balatant disregard for the player that the SRW games have. The level design in almost every fight in almost every SRW game is so inexcusably poor that after the novelty of the animations has worn off, I find the games entirely unplayable.

So...I hope I can trust Monolith that much at least.

Actually, that's another bit straight out of the Super Robot Wars series. Really, this is a pretty shameless clone of an okay but really popular franchise. I agree that the level design eventually makes the game too tedious to keep playing. It's too darn easy.

Here

Y's music composer is going to make the opening and ending theme of the game. Hooray !

More characters : King from Tekken, Shion , Tarosuke, Taki from Calibur, ROCKMAN DASH, Felicia, Zabel, Captain Commando teamed up with Guy for a reason, a weird Red Aremer looking guy, and HIDEO AND MINAZUKI KYďKO.
VIVA JUSTICE GAKUEN !

There will be around 50 maps, and Inafune is happy.
OK, now, please try to take GOOD characters from the Vampire series, it's not so hard.

Edit : I am sooo ahead of Quiter. Is Wani dead once again ?

Well, Huitzil/Phobos is out. He's like the only character in the entire series that never truely appealed to me.

Which is saying alot considering when the series first started I only liked 4 characters.

True, the face is very different, although it might just be their "interpretation". (Come to think of it, the Arremers in G&G even have that little horn. I should play that when I get home!)

Edit: Looking again, he's also too muscular to be a Red Arremer (and there are Arremers in his force anyway) Maybe he's the "Arremer King" or something.

Has Koshiro made any good music in years, though? I know he's capable...he made all my favorite Ys tunes, which are my favorite game songs ever...and he also did Shinobi 2 and ActRaiser...but I seem to remember him producing a few stinkers lately.

I'm still pumped. It's better than announcing Ayumi Hamasaki or something.

Also, back to NxC : call me a retard, but I have just noticed that EVERY character, not only Karin/Sakura or Commando/Guy, were paired.

Also, Namco actually was thinking about a game like that (sim RPG with lots of Namco characters) for 2 years, for their 50th anniversary. They wanted something big, but they could only find 100 characters, and it didn't seem big enough. So they thought to Capcom, and it looked like the good opportunity to get closer to them.

Also, they are thinking about using this general idea for other projects, not limited to the PS2 (wink ! wink !)

Yuz˘ was only behind the music of the Ys 1&2 games. He joined Falcom in 1987 and left after composing the music from those Ys games, Sorcerian, Romancia (just the opening), Xanadu Scenario 2 and Dragon Slayer IV (Legacy of the Wizard). After 2 years (I think) he went freelance, so he was never part of the "JDK sound team", because it didn't existed at that time.

When he left Falcom, he didn't know about the royalties and that stuff, so he doesn't have the rights to the songs he composed, so Falcom has done whatever they wanted with the music. That's why in Ys Eternal, for example, he is not credited for the music. It's quite sad...

I really love his work in those Falcom games and in the Streets of Rage series, it's the first game composer name I learned because his name was in the title screen of Street of Rage, and I respect him very much. I know he hasn't done anything big or great lately, and even in Shenmue he only did about 6 tracks (being the other composers the authors of the most outsanding tunes of the game), but well, I still want to listen to his music. It seems he is more towards directing games nowadays, Kaijuu no Shima (Sega) is his latest work. The last thing he composed where 2 tracks for the Merregnon project. Check out this last one, it's really awesome!

EDIT: I forgot! He composed the music for Namco's Wangan Midnight arcade games. They're releasing the soundtrack to Wangan Midnight maximum Tune 1&2! Can you translate the last sentences, where they are talking about a special card that comes with the first press of the soundtrack?

They appear on a screenshot in the official pfd, with other SF characters like Ryű and Ken.
I hope Chunli will have an interesting teammate, not just Guile/Nash... Leilei, or that girls from Star Gladiator, for example ?
Also, I wonder if the teams will be solid, or if they will change when you'll encounter new characters (like, Valkyrie-Strider Hiryű, but when you manage to get super-hidden-character Strider Hien, both striders pair up or something).

On the subject of Midnight something : if you get the card and play in your arcade with it, you'll be able to play the game with an original Yuz˘ track that has been especially composed for this.

Also, the units can move by pairs, but characters not linked can attack together, like Tarosuke, Mitsurugi and Taira no Kagekiyo. (bottom of the page)

Hey! I have friends who are fans of Ayumi-san. I'm more of a Suzuki Ami-san fan though.

Oh yeah. Ayumi-san also did "Dearest" (the third "Inuyasha" ending song). Yuzou-san was one of the few composers selected to do a remix of a "Street Fighter II" song. (I think he did M. Bison's theme [as in the boxer one].)

Going back on topic, it does have something going. Let's hope it turns out to be good in the end. Otherwise, you might as well stick Ousaka in it to cover up every mistake. (Can't remember where's that image right now.)

The Pacman crew can't be left out of the game. Namco doesn't have enough characters to let a huge name like this out of the crossover; besides, the ghosts could be fun to kill with Arthur.
And, well, Pacman managed to be in in R4.

By the way, does anyone knows anything new about the rights of Street Fighters being sold to Capcom of America ? Because there are no mention of them in the copyrights (speaking of which, there is no Moto Kikaku even though we have already seen Strider. Maybe the copyright list isn't complete yet ?)

I have no new news of SF being sold to Capcom USA. Just what we all know, they have the rights. My guess is that the copyright list isn't complete yet without Moto Kikaku's name like you suggest. But what do I know about intercompany legalities? Nothing, that's what.
