Blue Dragon scans

It's been 6 months since we last saw something new of Blue Dragon. But finally Microsoft Japan released this new images of the game through the very popular magazine Jump, just in time for the big hype campaign there.

Lost Odyssey I'm almost 100% sure, Blue Dragon I don't know for sure but I'd say so.

Wow, this game is interesting but they hardly release any details on it's progress, hopefully that will change soon.

sorry, this is a little bit OT but i've got an important question :)
as someone who's playing on a DLP and who's also played on the LCDs from the 360-kiosks, would you say that gaming on a DLP is better or worse than on a LCD? i'm considering a sagem DLP in hope that they deliver better image-contrast than the sammy LCDs used at the kiosks.

on topic:
if these screens are ingame than it looks really impressive. coming very close to CGI-cartoons.

I hope so.

I honestly don't see why MS wouldn't. One of the ressons PS2 sells so well,is because of it's diverse lineup. I mean,theres comes a time when someone wan't something else other then Action games or racers :/

Blim Blim your character pic kind of looks like the same art design of the creator of DBZ. The pic kinda looks like that fat little samurai guy who is always afraid to fight, he only fought once and that was in DB. LOL, srry i had to bring it up. Hopefully thats not you look like in real life,LOL, JK.

Actually it was a character created for a japanese TFLO fan page. The guy who did that is now a professional Manga creator and has his work published in Jump.
And while I'm certainly not skinny, I'm not as big as that :D

I really would like to see some Japanese rpgs make it to the xbox360. I really want to play Lost odyessy, Enchant Arm, Blue Dragon. I really dont care much for any square enix games, to me it seems like they are runnin out of ideas and of lately they have been churning out a couple of horrible games. What other RPG games are being made for 360, Blim Blim.

Well seeing as FFXI is coming out on X360, could mean there is glimmer of a hope that FFXII may appear on X360. If anyone knows either way would be good to hear?

GI: Do you think most of the Japanese titles made for this market are going to be making it over to North America? Like the Mistwalker titles...

Maruyama: They'll all go to the U.S. market and the European market because there are certain audiences in north America and Europe who want to play role playing games.

Yoshihiro Maruyama,is the Executive Officer General Manager in Xbox Division for Japan.
Oh Btw MS publish both games,which means they paid mistwalker to make those games,and if xbox did lack something it was RPG'S so if ms is not retards,it will comes here ofc :P

Well, MS also paid for Phantom Dust...
Commented on 2005-11-18 12:40:09
ok...But Lost odyssey was shown at E3.
And MS really need rpgs if they want a chance,and as you know,oblivion was delayed...
Basically they gonna be overun by ps3/nr if they cant deliver a blue dragon to usa/europe in 2006.

GI: What do you think of some of the Mech games or even the titles from D3 or From Software?

Maruyama: I have to say not all of the games will go to North America. Some selective high quality games because when I joined Squaresoft ten years ago most of the business was from the Japanese market. At the time 95% of the revenue came from the Japanese market. But Final Fantasy VII totally changed that landscape. In the design of Final Fantasy VII we modified character design and everything to suit the North American market, which really opened the door for Square Enix. So I would say more and more Japanese publishers now believe that there is business in North America and Europe. It's much more important than it used to be. Or you look at Tecmo. Tecmo's business is.. "

Basically he doesnt think enchant arm will come to us/europe at all....

Game looks great. I can't wait for it.
Commented on 2005-11-18 13:22:11
if those are the in-game models,i m really impressed...

Remember this game is supposed to look "Cartoonish" like chrono trigger :P
Ofc CT was 2d,but it was the only way to make games at SNES era...
Commented on 2005-11-18 13:54:03
I prefer the anime-art in this game rather than Kameo's "Cartoon Network" style.
Commented on 2005-11-18 14:09:17
I agree.

I wouldn't see why Blue Dragon wouldn't come over here. If Dragon Quest 8 does well, they will almost certainly do it. This looks fantastic BTW, I can't wait to see a gameplay video.
