    Finished the Project Octopath demo and I am hooked. The game play, combat system, and graphics were exactly what I was hoping for. Even the more serious tone of the story was a welcome antidote to the sophomoric themes found in many JRPGs of recent years.

    Several classic JRPG franchises could certainly be identified as having influenced development, but SaGa Frontier and Suikoden were two that jumped out at me.

    Nintendo just sent the survey requesting thoughts on the demo and I said the best thing they could do for this game is offer more of what we have seen here.

    Looking forward to this episode! Cannot wait to hear your thoughts on Alliance Alive and Project Octopath Traveler.

    @Tetragrammaton - Very true. It originally released in 2011 when interest in the DS was waning. Not sure why Atlus is repeating that decision with the 3DS. RH is a terrific game--under-appreciated largely because of that late in console life release decision. It deserves better.

    I was glad to see Alliance Alive getting a western release. Just imported the soundtrack from Japan and it is really good. This game has a strong SaGa vibe and I am loving it.

    Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology launch edition looks very nice. Such an amazing game--too bad it is releasing at the very end of the 3DS life cycle when almost no one will play it.

    Xenoblade 2 combat has me a little concerned. I need to see more before I decide whether to pick this up at launch. Not a fan of the frenetic combat systems a la Final Fantasy XV.

    Starting the Project Octopath demo now. That was my biggest and best surprise of the evening. Gorgeous graphics. I feel as though I am living FF VI all over again. Day one purchase for me.

    @orient - So many people are saying this. Makes me wonder if I will be the only one purchasing Radiant Historia on the 3DS next March???

    Excellent review, Kat! I am glad to hear that MercurySteam held true to the Metroid 'formula' while at the same time identifying areas in which they could leave their own mark on this game. The use of parrying in combat is probably the best example.

    Too many years have passed since I last played Metroid II on Game Boy, so I look forward to digging into this one on Friday.

    Hoping for a Xenoblade 2 firm release date and Collector Edition announcement.

    Kat and Nadia are spot on regarding the Secret of Mana remake and Caty is smart to stick to the SNES Classic version. Graphically it looked like your average mobile game and the character voicing sounded like something out of Saturday morning cartoons. I completely agree that the upgraded pixel version that came to mobile devices would have been preferable to this remake.

    The Seiken Densetsu collection on Switch posted relatively poor sales in Japan (which I have to believe is largely due to the wide availability of those games on a number of platforms in Japan). Sadly, that probably ensures that we will never see the collection in the west.

    @nadiaoxford - When I first heard about this remake, I was hoping for something along the lines of what we saw in FF III or FF IV on the DS. This trailer (albeit short) had a closer resemblance to a game being released for mobile devices as opposed to one headed to consoles.

    I am trying to keep an open mind and see how this develops, but it seems like another argument for leaving classic gems alone.Edited 2 times. Last edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown

    @The-Challenger - Would be a great investment from my perspective. I bought the Majora's Mask N3DS XL day one in large part so I could play Xenoblade Chronicles 3D when it released. Being able to play the game on the go was ideal for me.
