Enchant Arm: 40 images

Enchant Arm: 40 images

From Software released 40, really really small, images of their promising RPG [Em]Enchant Arm. It's up for an early january release in Japan, and somehow, I just really like how it looks and the colors in it.

This game looks cool, though the graphics could have been sexier.

Looks good, but not a 'turn based' fan myself.
Come on Japan, give the 360 some love.

Looks like it has all the elements to make a Japanese gamer happy.

I might care if this game is coming to the US.

I'm sure EM will make it stateside. Isn't it being developed by the guys behind Shadow Hearts? That series has always been picked up here.

Anyhow, I wish the screens were bigger. I'm not an RPG fan myself, but the game does look pretty. The blond kid looks like a character straight out of Virtua Fighter.

It needs some fast cars and kudos, then it would kick butt! n/m that's all the pgr3 in my blood talking....

Something tells me this wont come to Europe... sadly.
And all though i want it,it doesnt looke like a must have title...but still i would have wanted it.

Looks cool as always, one of the early titles that I'm really looking forward to. I'm a big fan of turn based JRPGs. Looks like it has every element to make a great game, I just hope it gets released in the west.

from software is developing it, or am i wrong? the guys who made otogi should have worked on this game..... anyway, i like very much the overall quality of this game, i hope it will be released in europe too (or at least i hope in a region free usa release )

The same dev team that worked on Otogi IS making this game.

well Otogi was a really good game, so we can expect a nice rpg :-))

holy crap you sound like an idiot. you could easily be mistaken for an idiot


In regards to the images, I don't get why the japanese basically always release images to suit mobile phone browsers and PDAs primarily. I know the broadband situation in japan is a bit Tarzan, but surely the "HD era" should encourage bigger-than-stamp-sized media.

*SIGH* How people like you are allowed escape from the institute is beyond me...
Commented on 2005-12-22 18:08:15
Well, it looks pretty good...but in all honesty, it's kind of hard to tell with the size of these images.

Either you are blinded by the 345x190 sized images, or you are a dumbass. Go watch one of the many trailers out there for this game, or go look at some bigger screens. I assure you, there is no way in hell even a top end PC could pull this game off.
Commented on 2005-12-22 18:52:20
I'm getting this game for sure. Its actually one of the better looking titles on the list (in my opinion anyway). I can't wait to see what kind of graphics we'll be seeing in a couple years if it's this good already.

Edit: btw why are the screens so small?

i guess so, after all this is real-time that beats the best pre-rendered fmv's ps2 could offer

I really NEED this to come over to the US. I have to have some turn-based JRPG greatness, though it seems im starting to be the only one that wants this...oh well...
Commented on 2005-12-22 19:56:33
character design is just weak in my opinion. overall looks cookie cutter jrpg. and why aren't they releasing higher resolution images? details they don't want seen??
Commented on 2005-12-22 20:08:05
LOL @ panty shot. Gotta love them Japanese.

So it's a strat-rpg? What's with the grid?
Commented on 2005-12-22 21:36:07
Yeah, it's kinda strategy-rpg-ish. They showed some video of the battle system at TGS or X05. Most attacks and spells have an area affect, like a straight line, or a block, or whatever. So you can group your characters together to get them all with a heal spell, but then you expose them to an area effect attack.

I think that's all the grid is for. Allies and enemies are on 2 separate grids, so you don't need to (and can't) move up next to somebody for a melee attack or anything.
Commented on 2005-12-22 22:41:16
im not a turn based fan so this game is going off my must have list sadly
Commented on 2005-12-22 23:50:50
You would think this game is a psp game with how small of screenshots they release.
