Spectral Force 3 images

Spectral Force 3 images

Direct-feed versions of the Famitsu images of Spectral Force 3 has finally been put up on the internet. They are not in 720p, but HD textures isn't really this game's most hyped feature anyway.

Well, the animations look nice :) I think I'm glad they're not 720p heh..

Is this a grid based strat-rpg? What platforms were the original Spectral Force games on..and uhh..who is developing this?

Sorry, too many questions..I'll shutup and go google it.

it looks like a strategy jrpg (similar to final fantasy tactics), but i think we will never see this released in usa or europe...

We've received quite a large number of these types in the US, so I won't discount it, however the chances are probably minimal on this one for quite some time.

horrible.

I don't know what's horrible about these screens? They look nice. The game is in anime style. Anime are not suppose look real.

FFT (the original not the kiddie mess for the GBA) is my second favorite RPG. I'd hope this would be similar but it probably won't ever come to the US.

I think it's the super-low-res textures turning people off...I have the same complaint about the FFXI beta--it seems like they're using ancient assets in that game--but atleast they can use the excuse that it's a port of a game from 2002(?)

Still doesn't mean it will be a bad game, of course..likewise..I'm really enjoying FFXI despite it's visual drawbacks. I never got to play the game back in it's prime, and I find that it's really quite an achievement considering it's age and what platforms it launched on..neat game..but I'm just getting way OT.

I love SRPG games. I doubt we'll ever see one--but I think it'd be quite cool if Lucasarts did a sequel to Gladius one day..there's a sleeper.

looks like an awesome srpg game. But this must be coming to the Xbox, right? Right?!
Commented on 2006-01-17 17:59:58
I guess we can only be so picky if it's the only SRPG on the system.

I can't say anything about how good the game is, but come on, there's no defending those in-game graphics. The "anime isn't supposed to look real" argument doesn't work when games like Dragon Quest 8 and Rogue Galaxy do it better.

The cutscenes look fantastic, though. :-)

Mmmmmm, look at the icon to the left of "Spectral Force 3 images".
Commented on 2006-01-17 18:15:59
Honestly .. would be a "ok" looking Nintendo DS game .. but will sell as hell ...

This game looks pretty good , want to try it out...
Commented on 2006-01-17 18:24:43
The in-game stuff looks quite terrible.
Commented on 2006-01-17 19:20:27
Yeah. Even though it's anime and all, there are some stuff that's not THAT impressive. Like this image, which speaks for itself:

horrible.
Couldn't have said it better myself. This is looking like a PS1/PS2 game.
Commented on 2006-01-17 21:34:40
game still in the works relax guys :)
Commented on 2006-01-17 22:15:17
Pretty unimpressive. Hopefully it will look better over time...hopefully.

Unfortunately the chances of them re-texturing and remodeling the entire thing before they're done is pretty unlikely :/
Commented on 2006-01-17 22:20:37
Looks like a early PS2 game...
Commented on 2006-01-17 22:47:34
Unfortuantly it does look like a PS2 game, but then again if it's a low budget niche title like I suspect then we can't expect much from it. Gameplay could be pretty good though, I'll have to wait and see.
Commented on 2006-01-17 23:20:05
But come on, really, this looks like a PS1 game. It has nothing to do with art style or that it isn't fotorealistic, neither is Blue Dragon but still that game looks gorgeous...
Commented on 2006-01-17 23:56:03
Well, I hope everybody knows that graphics don't make games! Still, I'm pretty sure it won't come out of Japan like most of the J-Rpg on Xbox. 1
Commented on 2006-01-18 00:50:22
This game looks good, and then again JRPG's do not usually have the greatest graphics.
