[eM] -eNCHANT arM- scans

[eM] -eNCHANT arM- scans

[eM] -eNCHANT arM- will be released in less than 2 weeks in Japan and was reviewed in this month's Famitsu Xbox 360 where it got a 32/40 (9/8/8/7). Famitsu also had a few pages detailing the combat system and even showing our old friend Raiko from Otogi as a Golem in the game. I can't wait to see "Mister President" from Metal Wolf Chaos kicking some ass in there !

the xbox needed some good RPGs when it was in it high life now the 360 is looking to get a lot of RPGs this time round, and thats a good thing in my eyes

I think each number is the score from a different reviewer.

As far as i know, there are four reviewers at famitsu, every one gives his own overall-score. no graphics or replay value ratings.

Exactly.

Raikoh is in the game! That's awesome. In the old scans I thought the graphics for the character models when they're in battle looked kind of unimpressive. They look great in these pics however.

Sorry, bit off topic here but Blimblim have you heard anything about Metal Wolf Chaos. I havn't heard a thing in atleast 6 months. Is their a chance we might get it in the States and Europe.

I am really looking forward to this game.

Nope, it won't be released outside Japan. Ever.
It's not that great a game anyway, it's fun at first, but it quickly becomes frustrating and repetitive.

Are you going to import this game Blim?

Hurrah! still if this kind of crap get the Japanese all excited, lets hope it helps the 360's sales in the land of the rising sun.

He was talking about Metal Wolf Chaos you fool. And this game looks absolutely cool and I have high hopes for a western release. It's great to have all of these great and imaginative quality games comming from Japan instead of the usual dull FPS, churn-a-sequel sports titles and racing games. Hurrah for Japanese developed games.

Yeah the guy in the last screen did look like otogi. But the game is looking better each time some new scans pop up.

I'm surprised the score of the game is as low as it is. Kind of a bummer, really. :(

Yep, already preordered from play-asia.
xspeedracerx: Anything below 35 in Famitsu has to be considered carefully.

Is the 360 region locked, because i want to preorder this game from a japanese website. EM got a 32, regardless of what famitsu says this game looks good, except for the run based battles.

Yep, region locked of course. Some games are region-free, but I doubt Enchant Arm will be one.

This is all good for xbox360 in Japan. Should see a good pick up in sales with all these Japanese games coming out.
Commented on 2006-01-01 02:38:28
this, 99 nights and DOA4 should give japan a reason to get a 360
Commented on 2006-01-01 02:59:11
I know it's off topic but back to the Metal Wolf comments--It's really a pretty fun and solid shooter..what really kills it for me is the HORRID voice acting. Fun game though..I was dying for them to redub it and release it here..but I guess that's not gonna happen :(

I don't think so. Square-Enix just released Kingdom Hearts II for the PS2, and there are some other huge titles coming out this year for Sony's and Nintendo's platforms. Xbox 360 still lacks big titles and true next-gen games. The console will not sell in Japan until it gets something really special content. All hopes are on Mistwalker's games.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Distribution is definitely a problem. I've heard Switch is pretty easy to find in certain parts of Europe. Not so easy in the USA. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth like here (norway) i know people who preordered it, none got it. so they can't have sent many this way. Personally i wasn't planning on getting one, but i feel sorry for those who tried and failed. (3 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth themselves), they should have put out a few more runs to atleast cover the people pre-ordering it. i'm fine with limited time availability otherwise. (3 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the whole nes-mini thing was lame. i understand they planned it as a limiteds-time release so people could get something cool for christmas 2016, but when they misjudged the marked (which they said.. (3 Hours ago)

    Tinks I stopped trying to make sense of Ninty's decisions a long time ago lol. "This cheap machine prints money? naaaah" (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I guess it was supposed to be a limited run in the first place.. but you'd think it'd be a pretty easy way to make money too. (5 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah they certainly decided against trying to meet demand. They probably wanted to focus on Switch demand above all (5 Hours ago)
