Characters and screenshots of Project Sylpheed

Characters and screenshots of Project Sylpheed

The official japanese site of Project Sylpheed is now up and running. It's yet another flash site, though it's quite nicely done, but I've still extracted the images to keep everything simpler. Enjoy these shots of the 3 main characters Ellen, Katana and Margras, and these 6 ingame images.

Beautiful. They remind me a lot of Xenosaga’s characters.

Pretty cool, but I can't wait to see some videos of this one. The graphics are acceptable, but I want to see the gameplay.

I think its cool that square enix is making this game for 360.. Although just because its a square enix game doent mean that it will be awesome.. These screenshots are not very impressive.. I remember FF in PS2 ..while summoning a monster there was a mixture of realtime graphics and some sort of full motion video if I'm right which made the game look fantastic but still it was a trick.. So looking at these pictures now i'm not very impressed..The same goes with the characters.This is a shoot em up game so how will we see them realtime? You already see a graphics difference between the characters inside and outside the spaceship.. We'll have to wait and see a video.

Star Fox 360, it looks good but not great, however it's an awesome developer so I hope this will turn out good.

It's impressive how many japanese games are coming, the list is endless: over g, Chrome Hounds, Lost Planet, Dead Rising, Project Sylpheed, Enchanted Arms, Bullet Witch,Kengo, Namco Rpg, and a long etc. It's so strange to see xbox recieving so much japanese love, but keep them coming :)

Too much HUD on the screen. Really detracts from the game.

I duno why people keep assuming this game is by Square-Enix, it's by Game Arts.

I duno how closely they are working together on this or whether SE are just publishing it.

Art style looks good, I'm hoping this is on rails in all honesty, similar to Panzer Dragoon, i'm not a fan of space sim style fighters.

I'm hoping you get to fight on planets aswell as in space.

^I think there both working on it.. and both have in put..

plus I can tell ppl that think 360 is crap that, Square don't think so.. I may of already have 2 or 3 ppl getting a 360 now..XD

Because there blind, they think 360 crap, and they think PS3 will win no matter what.. I loved PS2 and PS1 but Sony is lost it with this crap there pulling..

Anyway, I think both have some work in it.. IF Oh well, I sold 2- or 3 360.. So its wroth it..XD

People will probably buy the game just to watch the CGI-cutscenes.

Totally agree with this, they need to re organize all that shield information , it's blocking the view of your ship. Also their is way to much text on screen in a few of those pictures.... it's annoying and hopefully it's changed or you have the option to remove it

For some reason, the characters look similar to those from Enchant Arm to me..especially the guy in screenshot 8, Margras.

The trailer looked good, i'm just not into space shooters though :\

Well I think the HUD fits perfectly for the atmosphere of the game.

those are pretty good

About the game

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea I can see them being more problematic on consoles.. it doesn't require much precision to run someone down with the saber either. (10 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: Yes, a little bit OP though. If one charges at you with a horse, you're f'ed unless you can pull off a headshot. Especially on consoles they are hard to hit because of the 'controller' (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And ya gotta count horses 'cause horsing is one of the best things in the game. (4 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @GriftGFX: yeah I've noticed the extra revive time. You shouldn't compare ww1 vehicles to modern warfare though as it's simply unfair. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm sure people miss the progression from more recent games tho.. some people are really into that. It's undeniably barebones by comparison. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you noticed that you can still be revived waaaay after the "bleed out" period? Still saves a death too.. hah. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's not just the lack of unlocks.. lack of stuff in general. Battlefield 2 still had more vehicle and weapon variety than BF1. Way more. (5 Hours ago)
