Lunar: Silver Star Touch Announced for iOS

edited April 2011 in Latest Updates
Not much is known about about Lunar: Silver Star Touch, not even which version it's based on. We can all assume it won't be the GBA version, Lunar Legend, right?

Story
Reincarnation, realization

    As much as I'm sick of all the Lunar remakes/ports, this one sorta amuses me. :) I can poke Nash and he will do things!

    Also weird tidbit, but SoMoGa also did a iPhone/iPod Touch port for Vay, which was an old Sega CD game.

    I'm expecting this'll pretty much be an iOS version of Silver Star Harmony, so really just a straight port.

    I think they're going for the World Record of Most Ported Game with Lunar.

    They've still got a looong way to go before they catch up with Ys.

    But I can tell they're working on it!

    At least Ys has an actual library of games to pick and choose from. As far as I'm concerned, there are only 2 Lunar games.

    Maybe they could, you know, make a new one. Properly.

    What are you talking about? There were only 2 Lunar games to begin with, and a bunch of remakes of them.

    Don't correct me on this one, we shall not speak of that one atrocity.

    I would say FFIV completely beats Lunar: The Silver Star in the number of remakes/ports. Lunar is trying to catch up, but still has a ways to go.
    Which is a shame to say about FFIV because to me it's the second best FF game in the series, but now it has been completely run into the ground.

    Eh, well at least the greatest (FFVI) is not being completely massacred as well.

    That hasn't happened to it YET.

    Yeah, knowing SE they are preparing to announce the "enhanced" remake for the 3DS
    Then they will wait till mid next year and have one ready to announce for the NGP >.>
    This is what Capcom seems to be doing with several of their IPs. I mean, how many consoles will Resident Evil 4 be on? And Street Fighter? =/

    Yeah, there aren't many exclusives anymore. So it's really come down to your preference of genre and series. I own both a PS3 and 360, but I prefer my PS3 overall. If it wasn't for Lost Odyssey and The Dishwasher games, I probably wouldn't have a 360 anymore. And, well, I guess I have to keep it for Vesperia, too, seeing as how the PS3 version will most likely never come stateside.

    But isn't that a good thing for competition? In the past, if you wanted to play a specific game, you had to own the specific console it was made for, regardless of how crappy the console was. Nowadays you can pick your console based on how good the console is and then pick up the games you want for it. (ok, that's not universally true, but it is for most PS3/360 games) Gives the console manufacturers a reason to actually make their consoles better.

    Which atrocity? Strolling School or Genesis? What really surprises me is that, like the original Silver Star and Eternal Blue, Strolling School was the only other game made by Studio Alex. So I can't even say it was just Studio Alex's departure that ruined the series.

    I agree, there were only two Lunar games, and they were both for the Mega CD. Everything after was about making a quick buck on the series' name. I'm shocked the franchise even holds any value anymore.
    It is currently not known if it will be based on the original Sega CD, the PSX, or the recent PSP version
    As if they would ever remake the Mega CD version. They've changed so much, nobody would even recognize it without the fourteen extra characters, without the extra two hours of nonsensical story and made-up previous villains, without the heat-seeking visible enemies, with a real world map (that has enemy battles), with orchestral red book audio, etc etc.
    It would be nice if Game Arts would work on a Lunar 3 rather than the wave of remakes, lol
    I just wish they'd let the series rest already. It's been too long from Mega CD Eternal Blue until now. A Lunar 3 made by contemporary standards wouldn't be anything at all like the original games, to the point you may as well call it something else, or call another game Lunar 3. Nobody would know the difference.

    I'm hoping for an FFVI remake with arranged music and shiny new graphics. Seriously, remakes are great, just look at the DQ trilogy on the DS, or the new Tactics Ogre remake. I don't really care if they're milking a game as long as they still do the remake properly. And if you consider the fact that the original games they put out these days (like FFXIII and 3rd Birthday) are trash, then remakes are even more desirable.

    *coughDragonSongcough*

    I'm actually on your opposite as my preferred console between PS3/360 is the 360. I don't know what it is with my console but when playing the PS3 the colors have a bad habit of fading to green every few minutes until you wiggle the cables and it resets (the same cables work fine with the 360).

    But when it comes down to it I like being given the choice, so I'm in favor of the mutli-platforming.

    As for Lunar, I'd much rather see a remake of the Eternal Blue. With the recent PSP remake of Silver Star I was able to get my younger sister into the series (13 year age gape, oi!) but if I want to show off Eternal Blue to her I'd still have to find my dusty box of PSX games.

    Careface. Game Arts can get started with an Eternal Blue remake, and try to go easy on the loading times this time.

    I believe Lunar: Dragon Song/Genesis is intended as the third Lunar game.

    But wasn't Lunar: Dragon Song, following the story of Silver Star Story, or am I mistaken? I have it sealed yet, and don't plan on playing it anytime soon.

    1. I like the idea of Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo bidding and fighting tooth and nail to get "X" game exclusive to their system to lure customers.
    I think the problem with this is that the winner of this contest isn't the best company, but the company with the most money. The Xbox and 360 got a lot of exclusives (or temporary exclusives) early in their lives because Microsoft could afford to throw money at developers. It was good for Microsoft at the time, but later, many of those temporary exclusives got releases on other consoles that were better than the Xbox versions...
    2. I like the idea of games not being watered down due to being multi-platform, because devs are trying to make sure the version on the PS3 is not better than the 360 version or vice versa. The devs can concentrate solely on crafting the game around the console that it's exclusive to. I personally feel that an exclusive game usually leads to a better manufactured game, not always but usually.
    That's a good point -- if a game is being developed as a multiplatform game, usually you have one platform that is the "target" platform, and the others are secondary efforts, so they usually end up suffering for it. (see Bayonetta, Darksiders, FFXIII ...)

    On a serious note, I hate that game with a PASSION. It's mostly the final boss and the gameplay that do that to me, though.

    Agreed. I want a remake of this so badly for the PSP to go with Silver Star Harmony. Because I could always use more Lucia.

    IT WILL NEVER BE THE THIRD ONE! It's the equivalent of Snake's Revenge.

    You are mistaken. It was a prequel...during a time when Beastmen ruled over all.

    I would say they are set in the series but I don't believe Dragon Song is Lunar 3 and I don't believe Strange Journey is SMT4.
    I have to agree with you on Dragon Song. I don't believe it to be Lunar 3 either. Strange Journey, I'd have to play first.
