Still have the PS2 version via PS3 BC and have yet to play it. Probably won't bother with the remaster. I am curious as to why a lot of people are hyping this game up. It has a 82 metacritic score. Is this hype warranted or is this another one of those quirky, cult classic niche japanese games like Deadly Premonition that gets overhyped?
Same. I remember finding a copy at gamestop and the clerk whined that he had planned on buying it at the end of the day. I was disappointed by the relatively thin story but it was alright. Never got super far, probably got stuck on a boss. The game was difficult.
Its more along the lines of the game's nature of the press turn system. Not the fact that its a turn based game in of itself. Its designed for the player to fully take advantage of to exploit the enemies and at the same time the enemies can do the same. It heavily punishes players who dont have a balanced party composition. Theres also the fact that resources and save points are very limited in Nocturne.
Other witnesses say that the amount of ratings on those games had doubled after this mini direct. Which means what you say is right, but the bombers returned yesterday for another round. I bet 90% of these bombers are the ones with he/him in their Twitter bios.
At last, the king is back.
The greatest game Atlus has ever produced is again available on modern machines.
If only anyone could understand their developer. (Atlus, P4G on PC and Nocturne on Switch/PS4? I just don't understand the distribution.)
Doesn't seem like it. Other people have explained in this thread already, but there's another version of Nocturne that was released in Japan only that substituted Dante with a character called Raidou who's from an SMT spinoff. Raidou appears in the trailer too so it's 99% this is the version we're getting.
That may be a downer but consider this: It seems clear Atlus will not be following in the footsteps of their previous remasters and enhanced iterations of shoehorning in waifus or drastically altering the original artstyle. We're safe.
This is going to sound stupid but I swear I'm not making this up. They saw Call of Duty breaking sales records and thought they could get comparable sales by courting a western audience. They sold a franchise high with DMC4, but compared the numbers to CoD, said "Why aren't we selling those numbers?", and decided the best course of action was DmC.
Looks like this is based on the very last version of Nocturne (Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Maniax Chronicle Edition which features Raidou ) as a base which never saw a release outside of Japan. This came after the Dante version. I am guessing that since this is a remaster HD, they will want to release the full on ATLUS version and also probably expired license to use Dante. Im ok with this.
Does it matter if the game runs 60FPS or not? this turn based game, extra frame is not going to effect the gameplay. I personally getting this on Switch, it going to be fun playing this on my bed before going to sleep.
