Blue Dragon TV ads

Blue Dragon TV ads

Well it looks like we did not have to wait long before the first TV ads for Blue Dragon were aired in Japan. It's short, but the quality is excellent !

Awesome stuff. Thanks Blim.

I get chills when I see that TV spot! Great stuff. I'm hoping Sakaguchi's 360 support will help popularize the console with other great Japanese developers.

Now I can't get that music out of my head. It's oddly addictive. I'm going to hear it 24x7 once I start playing the actual game. hehe

"Sakaguchi: Mr.Toriyama that's amazing." "Toriyama: Is that so?" Great tv ad that is bound to win over some of those japanese Dragon Quest zealots. The Game looks awesome btw =)

Does this mean the game is coming out soon?

Either way, this is the smartest TV ad campaign MS has done so far with the Xbox.

Hey I have that Wacom tablet :)

Thanks Blim. I'm new to your site, but I've been downloading your pics and trailers for a while. How do you stay so up on the news compared to the other larger, but useless sites. The Blue Dragon stuff is awesome. Keep up the good work.

short ad but i'm hyped for this game since the first news i read about it.i love lost odyssey for the story and blue dragon for the shadow thing.i heard MS wanted game dev to make games for the Japan audience.i hope they ship these game to the states too.

Oh man,that's such a good commercial.They have Sakaguchi and toriyama,with Uematsu's music played in the back ground. That's sure to catch alot of attention
Commented on 2005-12-18 22:54:12
that's a bad commercial if you ask me. only people who know the background for the game (or the people behind it) would be excited. For me, it did nothing. I don't know who those guys were and i don't know what kind of game this will be.
Commented on 2005-12-18 23:02:20
The people in Japan know ofc the akira who made art for dragonballz/dragon quest 8/chrono trigger,and btw in famitsu you seen and read many times sakaguchi and they even have cartoon of him,not a serie but a cartoon pic they sometimes use.
Commented on 2005-12-18 23:11:13
that's why this commercial won't be airing in USA ;)

I still can't get over how good that water looks.

I am glad to see MS is right there this time around. It seems we will have some nice games in the horizon. It will be fun to see how things evolve in the next 6months. Allthough there are few things I would like to see on Xbox360.
- FFVII remake :)
- Final Fantasy -series(not the mmporg)
- MGS4

I can hope... It is nice though that Resident Evil 5 will appear on Xbox 360.

In Japan, game developers are like rockstars in popularity and fanbase. There are going to be people who buy the game, hopefully, simply because of the people making it.

That's why the commercials work so well.

my sister walked in while i had paused the trailer on the bit where u see the river and she asked "where's that?" haha
very very nice...i just want control the characters around the environment, even if i coudn't do anything else, just let them walk aroud...ok i'd like a jump button too but thats all haha
soo very excellent, the look of the game is the best i've seen so far, artistic wise and technical...lets just hope the gameplay is all good and then this game will be an absolute gem

Wada (president of square-enix) gonna announce next E3 if Final Fantasy and Dragon quest serie will be multiformat.
And yes he wasn't talking about a game like Final Fantasy crystall like a spin off,but like FF13 and Dragon quest 9.
He said,he would make them into one format or two.
Basically its doesnt take a genius to figure out that the only one will be ofc then ps3,not only because of sonys 8% stocks into square-enix but because of all history and because they sell like crazy in japan,(yes ff is world wide hit,but now dq) and ps3 gonna sell more then 360 in japan with huge marginals,xbox360 already sells bad in japan now,ofc thats is because of the delay of doa4+enchant arm+pgr3 too ,but nvm its not only that and we know that,they doesnt seem to ntrested in 360.
Hopefully these two titles will do,and if not,i dont care,i still get those games.

Yes both is coming to eu/usa,the genelra manager for japan said so,and btw MS is publisher,so spending a lot of money on rpgs that they lack off,ofc they will need it into all markets and they even show LO in e3 now why do that else if its not coming to usa?,however if these titles will come much faster to japan then to usa/eu is to be seen.

You obviously don't have a shadermodel 3.0 videocard (Nvidia 6800/7800 series) in your PC.. ;)

The water in i.e. Age Of Empires 3 of Half-Life 2 looks almost the same using SM 3.0.. Very beautifull indeed.. :)
