Alright, everyone pack it up. Arika has already won.

I was already feeling April Fool's fatigue before it even began, but this set my heart on fire (and broke it lol)

Ah what could have been. Hopefully this is something more than just an elaborate prank!

Maybe somebody more versed in FFXI would feel more pain watching this...

Good grief, that looks fun! I wonder what they are using those assets for; it seems like too much work just for a joke.

Ya know what? Looking at Arika's Twitter (which was stupidly hard to find--it doesn't show up first when you search for "Arika" or "アリカ") I'm gonna go ahead and say, I think this game IS real and they were real smart to announce it today and make everyone cry and beg for it :D

Good grief. When did April Fools become synonymous with breaking the aging hearts of longtime fans of your video game franchise?

So this is what Shinkiro has been up to!

This joke about the Shin Godzilla phone is rather dumb but it still makes more sense than the N-Gage.

The most amazing thing about that Street Fighter Quiz game is that, even there Alex is useless.

Yeah I said the same thing when I saw it. I'll eat my hat if this isn't real in some form.

It would've been one thing if someone was an obvious Street Fighter V clone, but they threw us three characters and recognizable mechanics on top of that.





I found Kagami's sword in a junk yard.
I will rule the world and find that truly good cup of coffee.

I do not follow the street fighter thread but didn't they announce four new characters for the next season of SFV? Maybe these characters could be the new ones.

This SNK's, nothing special, but it seems to be a send-off homage to their pachislot IP, Sister Quest (now owned by Highlights Entertainment).

It's real insofar that someone can sit down and play it, but it leaves me wondering: what's their goal? It's not very funny, so if this is the last we see of it then it was quite the failure.

There's simply too much effort here, but not enough to call it a product with the lack of polish (especially the sound). It really doesn't look like it was made specifically for April Fool's Day, but if it's a tech demo or proof of concept then doing this on April Fool's day is a pretty strange move. Were they pitching it to a publisher? Or are they maybe still in the process of pitching it and using this as a bold way to show that there is consumer interest?

yeah they're clearly trying to gather interest/money, I think there is some degree of extra emotional response/exposure they wouldn't have had on any other day, not sure how relevant it's gonna be in the long run but ehi, doubt it will hurt one bit.

As far as I can tell from my mediocre translating job (if I'm getting it wrong someone else jump in please), this article seems to summarize what went down on the stream and according to it Arika stated that it is definitely nothing more than an April Fool's Day thing right now, but they'd like it to be more if they can get the budget for it.

So, kind of a shame but not unexpected. If people really want the game to happen they ought to show their support however they can.

Hmm some of you might remember they tried the same trick when 3DS was newly released, by offering users to download 3D photos you could check from your 3DS and hoping to raise interest for a 3DS game with their own characters. In the end, this helped them get some contractual work on Tekken 3D but they never got to release their own game.

The painful part is that SE puts money into stuff like that and sponsoring Wrestlemania while XI gets nothing. Putting XIV's director in charge of SE's online games was a mistake, and it doesn't help if another other fondly-remembered games are at best only allowed to have something resembling a future as references in XIV...
