Meanwhile SE is concerned about releasing a mainline Final Fantasy game the same day as Persona...
At what cost?
Literally every single japanese game with anime artstyle looks the same, they are all horrible.
Sure there is a middle ground between literal garbage like Etrian Odissey/compile hearts and stuff like Dragon Quest which imo looks great even if it's anime, because it's something more traditional and not as extreme, but still.
Jeez, try something new every once in a while, now even Fire Emblem went to the route of idol and in the process raped it's own IP with an abortion like "genei ubon ruko something".
But i guess this is what the market wants right, Persona, a japanese highschool simulator outsells mainline shin megami tensei.
Awakening and Fates are now becoming a waifu breeding simulator and it keeps selling more.
It's terrible for me because JRPGs are my favorite genre, it's like loving FPS and hating regenerative health.
