As I stated in the previous post, I had taken a short holiday during the Christmas break, and that left me with no internet connection at all besides my phone, and it is not practical to blog with just a phone. However, for some game companies, it seems like Christmas was the best time to release new preview content. So, for the game companies I have press access to, I shall be doing a number of Christmas catch-up posts to ensure that this blog has all the recent updates for their products.
For those that have been following the series since it was announced for a Japanese release, you will notice that this is just the first Japanese trailer with Japanese voiceovers and a few descriptions. The storyline is briefly outlined however basically leaves it open for anything (Very vague description), however it is evident that your favorite consoles and game companies will be teaming up to save us humans from a villian. The voice-overs are okay, and it is moderately easy to identify what VA’s go with what character, whilst some of people appreciate the Japanese voice-overs in their games, I personally enjoy the English voiceovers the first time around, followed by the Japanese the second time, so it is relatively important to me. Besides that, Nippon-chan has been renamed to Nisa which is disappointing (At least keep it Nippon-chan!). Finally, this may be nit-picking, due to the awesomeness of Zettai Hero Project’s epic narrator, but the one in this trailer does not compare to Zettai’s one at all. However, I am currently assuming that this shall be just as good as Trinity Universe, so I can say I am definitely looking forward to it….
After the jump, Phantom Brave Assets.
The same time that the Hyperdimension Neptunia was released, NISA released a huuuuge number of Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle screenshots. These can all be seen below:
Phantom Brave Images (Stages / Attacks / Phantom Isle / Storyline)
As you can see, they have included a large pile of different screenshots to go through. In terms of comparison between the PSP and PS2 version of the game, there isnt that much different in terms of the general graphics or gameplay as a whole and it is evident that if you purchase this after having played the PS2 version, you won’t have to relearn an entire gameplay system again. The Hermuda Triangle storyline is an added storyline to the original, and both are on this disc. Personally, Phantom Brave, whilst being a good game, would most probably be the most frustrating out of all the Disgaea games I have played due to the game not accepting a cautious strategy (Due to the phantom turn limits) and generally, all the little bits and pieces that can get frustrating, so I am cautious about getting this one again.
