 Add me to the list, I was think is this a Monolith game? Then I got thinking, I hope they are stilling making that Fantasy game. The faces on the characters were the biggest thing drawing me to them. But its made sense when I started seeing the names come up.

I also thought of Monolith Soft. The character designs and some of the camera angles felt a lot like Xenoblade.

Add me to the list of those who thought of Monolith Soft. apart from the start of battle looking more like a choreographed dance performance than two people entering combat, it held my interest.

Really really interested in this, looks pretty good. Seeing that the NieR Automata team is involved makes me feel even more excited. I wonder if it's an action-RPG (like Automata) or a full action game (like Bayo or DMC)



I have a feeling DQ11 will be in September. I’m gonna be so happy that each month I’ll have some great game to play.
July Fire Emblem
August Astral Chain
Dragon Quest 11 probably September
Animal Crossing will also probably be September or October.

God damn. And then Pokémon in November probably. Hell yes.

I know it's early but it looks like it could be one of the best games of the year.

Yeah, I think you are right about Dragon's Quest being released in September, but I do believe we will see multiple Nintendo games release in the same month.

Demon x Machina releasing a couple weeks before Astral Chain in August.

I both Dragon Quest and Ultimate Alliance 3 are gonna end up as September titles, with UA3 being first half of September and DQ11 being second half. 

Luigi's Manson 3 and Zelda are releasing in October.

Pokemon the weekend before Black Friday.

Animal Crossing in December.

The game looks fantastic. I can't wait to find out more details about it. I'm hoping it is 2 player local co-op.

Unless I am forgetting something, the new Nintendo IP for the year are Astral Chain and Daemon X Machina. Maybe Nintendo is trying to stretch away from its kiddy image by developing more games in the "T for Teen" rating? Might just be a coincidence. I like that both new IP look edgy and original, but I think Astral Chain stole some of the hype away from Daemon X Machina.



Looks like fun, VA and story sound bad.

At this point, I am surprised Nintendo just hasnt outright bought Platinum.



Hyped for this game. The most interesting for me from all this Direct. It was a nice and unexpected surprise.



 

I could not be more down. Cyberpunk open world game actually set in a city and actually dark with good combat. Just hope the story is good.



Well, this is new.

Read.
