    Thanks Kat—great choice! CSH is a terrrific game that found itself swept under by the sheer number of strong releases in 2017. Look forward to hearing both your and Nadia’s initial thoughts on Friday’s podcast.Edited 5 days ago by Unknown

    The jury is still out for me regarding the Secret of Mana remake. The original remains my favorite game of all time (and I enjoyed revisiting it on the SNES Classic in recent months). A large part of me wants to remember the game as it has been and not as this half-hearted remake.

    That said, I will definitely be picking up the Radiant Historia remake in mid-February. The original was an amazing experience and this game deserves to be played by any fan of the genre. Long live the 3DS when we are still getting games like RH and Alliance Alive.

    My 3DS is going to be a go to console for me throughout 2018. As others have noted on US Gamer, the desire to bury and eulogize a console simply because a purported successor has come along is a logic that escapes me.

    In February, I have every intention of playing through Radiant Historia again. It is, without question, one of my favorite games of all time and each play through has always felt like a first. Amazing characters, soundtrack, combat system and story. RH is a top tier RPG in every sense.

    The Alliance Alive (releasing on 3DS on March) is one of the titles I am most looking forward to this year. Like Jeremy Parish, I really enjoyed Legend Of Legacy and Alliance Alive looks to be a continued development of that formula (with more story and additional characters). I have been waiting a long time for Alliance Alive to make its way west and I even imported the soundtrack from Japan a few months ago (it is terrific and I highly recommend it to everyone).

    None of this is to say that I do not enjoy my Switch. Quite the opposite. I simply elect to enjoy great games on whatever console they release on and I have no intention of storing my 3DS consoles any time soon.Edited 2 times. Last edited 2 weeks ago by Unknown

    My vote is for Cosmic Star Heroine. I cannot help but feel that it was dealt a tough hand by releasing in a year of so many outstanding games. There are many people who, in any other year would have loved the game, seemed to forget about or overlooked it entirely. For this reason alone, I think the Blood God should remind people that it is out there and worth playing.

    The bugs at launch made for a tough start, but once you moved beyond that, the game was fantastic. It reminded me of Phantasy Star in all the best ways.Edited 2 weeks ago by Unknown

    Just reviewed my comments from July on this article and I have to say that I am very much looking forward to the Switch release. If nothing else, the joy-con control set-up has to be an improvement over the DS controls.

    That aside, the game is fantastic. Kat’s description of TWEWY as an RPG classic that every fan of the genre should experience could not be more accurate. This wil be a day one purchase for me when the Switch release hits.

    @Kuni-Nino summed it up perfectly. The announcement of both TWEWY and Tropical Freeze for Switch served as the high points of yesterday’s Direct for me.

    I first played Tropical Freeze at the GameStop Expo in 2013 and it did not take long to appreciate just how great it was. I completely agree that it ranks in the top-tier of platformers from recent generations.

    With a larger install base on Switch, Tropical Freeze deserves to find a receptive audience. The inclusion of Funky Kong was probably necessary as a way to make the game accessible to a larger population. The final key will be price point. At $60 I probably could not justify double dipping...but if it fell in the $40-$50 range, I could justify adding the Switch version to my ever expanding backlog.

    I would like to second everything that@Ralek wrote about the forthcoming Fire Emblem Switch title.

    That said, Fire Emblem Echoes underwhelming sales numbers leads me to the conclusion that most of what you have requested probably will not happen, but I am on board with everything you wrote.

    @discohospital - My fear is that will happen to both Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology and Alliance Alive. Like you, I never understood why people abandon a platform simply because a purported replacement hits the market.

    Alliance Alive reviewed very well in Japan, but its lack of marketing in the west does not leave me confident of success. It would definitely require a word of mouth campaign similar to what Bravely Default received in 2014, but I am not confident that JRPG fans will be there to initiate the campaign this time.

    @Tetragrammaton - Agree 110% with everything that you have written. Radiant Historia has been done no favors with its late in system life release dates. So many people have already moved on from the 3DS that I fear this updated version will share the same fate as the original.

    I also share your concerns regarding the new story line. I am not sure that it was necessary given how well the first game tied things up. Like you, my hope is that it will not be an extraneous time filler. The game deserves far better than that.Edited 3 weeks ago by Unknown

    Project Octopath Traveler, Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology and Alliance Alive are at the top of my list for 2018. Looking to be a great year for JRPG fans.
