Trailer of Folks Soul/Folklore

Trailer of Folks Soul/Folklore

Just a few days after the Gamers Day trailer, Sony Japan and Game Republic released this new trailer showing much more of the game and the cutscenes, and in 720p resolution too. And since it's just beautiful, it's definitely worth its own news.

Wow, now im hooked like when I first saw this game!

The story seems good so good they could make it into a mature short anime series. Also love the music, it's top notch.

Kind of reminds me of the first Silent Hill (just a tad bit).

I hope they are already working on all the translations....they are already speaking course that doesn't have to mean they are already doing it.

We can always hope I gues.

You mean Irish, lol.
Commented on 2007-05-21 22:28:30
almost the same :)

Think the Irish accent is great, better than most of the half assed American ones we have to put up with.

Amen to that. Final Fantasy X drove me crazy. Dragon Quest 8 Had Amazing voice acting!

Great trailer, not sure about the voice acting or story, but the graphics, art, and gameplay look great.
Commented on 2007-05-22 03:22:38
So this is basically Silent Hill in the form of RPG. I would have liked the trailer if it had some cool music tho...japanese rock just doesnt do it for me.

I'm not really a big j-rock fan myself ,but I thought the song really fitted the video - as for the game : I'm was already sold on this when the very first video of it was shown and this superb trailer surely doesn't change that ;) .

Hey I recognize the voice of that singer, it's probably the guy from T.M. Revolution. He sounds and sings exactly the same way. He's got some awesome songs. ~Der Freischutz~ is a cool one. Jpop/rock/whatever is totally my thing :P. Probably because I'm born in Japan ^^"

My god, another Japanese masterpiece. You absorb monsters when they die, then when you attack, you see their spirits fade in with an awesome effect.

A Silent Hill comparison now? This is getting out of hand!

Will Blim call up the devs and ask em what game resembles Folklores gameplay the best?

I'm sticking to Pokemon! :D

Actually the way the spirits launch out it reminds me more of the shadows in blue dragon.

Well c'mon, A girl goes to a mysterious ghost town, searching for her mother. She enters into a different "realm" and fights wierd creatures. And that dude in this game that answers the phone looks just like the guy Vincent from Silent Hill that you meet, and helps you....check it out:

Silent Hill dude:
Folklore dude:

like the same exact guy! same clothes and everything
Commented on 2007-05-22 15:09:32
But the game is not like Silent Hill at all (It's more like pokemon :p), only the story like youi mention has a vague resemblance.

And that character of course, that resemblance is rather shocking :o
Commented on 2007-05-22 18:28:11
LOL jedi its NOT like pokemon.

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (1 Day ago)

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Day ago)

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (1 Day ago)
