I was semi-interested in this one, until I realized that it was being made by the same people that did Valkyria Revolution. 

From what I've read, combat is clunky, the story and settings are very generic, and the game is extremely grindy.

I'm planning on picking it up. Looks alot like Tales.



I'm getting it on the switch. Perfect console for grinding. Plus it does look very very similar to Tales games.
After Octopath that is.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I played the demo on Switch, i thought it was OK but not something that is a priority right now. Didn't get to deep into it but the combat i played was OK



Nothing to see here, move along

I’ll be writing up a review for the site ASAP so stay tuned for that!

Considering how it looks visually, I may as well nab it on Switch, but knowing the price range all around, I'll probably put this on my watch list and wait for a very long time till a sale happens.

I've read a lot of differing opinions as well. And you're talking about Media.vision as the developers, so please put a little respect on that name despite Valkyria Revolution.

Reviewers hate jrpgs apparently..... I dont always trust these reviewers, because of how much taste levels effect things.
All I can say is I saw the trailers, and those looked intresting. I wanna try it out, dispite whatever reviewers score it.



meh I played the demo didn't like it

That's good, because if they all shared your exact tastes, then we'd get shitty review scores for stuff you dislike all the time. It's good to have different reviews and reviewers who like different games.
