Nintendo Drops Giant RPG Bomb on the West

Nintendo appears to have finally received the message that we enjoy playing RPGs. That, or the company is really tired of us bugging it via Twitter and Miiverse.

We'll be adding media to this news feature as it becomes available.

    I am so psyched and ready for this. Sorry Vita, I'm going to have to get a 3DS first.

    Some very exciting news indeed. I'm a little surprised that Bravely Defaults is keeping its name, but I'm much more glad that it's getting localized. :)

    It's listed as a "tentative title" so we'll likely get a name change before release.

    I thought you got the Fire Emblem bundle.
    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    So much good news... I'm so happy right now...

    Well, waiting until 2014 for Bravely Default is going to be a pain, but it's great just to get it at all.

    That's a lot of RPGs. Yeesh.

    Also, I knew they had to have some sort of new Zelda in the works, but I definitely didn't expect it to be a LttP sequel. It looks really good.

    I'm actually sort of happy that Bravely Default is not coming too soon (mostly happy about the fact that it's officially coming). I wouldn't have the time for it this summer with all the other stuff. Also, that's one nice looking SMTIV package. I don't think I'll personally splurge on it but for all those that planned to buy it at release that's a nice bonus.

    Ok. I'll eat my words. $50 sounds like a reasonable price for the physical edition of SMT4. I will be putting it on pre-order in hopes that I like the series. And if I don't I'm sure I can find a good home for it at nicely inflated price. On the other hand, if the following printings or eShop version are $50, I still think that'd be ridiculous.

    As for the rest of it, I'm still absorbing the details, but from what I've read so far its sounding really exciting. Bravely Default and LttP2 sound like my top picks so far (LttP is THE best Zelda). Earthbound is a key win, but they need more to sell me on a Wii U.

    I'm only really excited about Earthbound at the moment. Zelda is dead to me, and the rest of the series aren't ones I'm familiar with. I might look into not-Final-Fantasy, but that's about it.

    Looks like I'll have to play through my copy of BD sooner than expected. I was going to time it so the review would go up around the 1st release anniversary, but now... impression time. As soon as I'm finished with my current portable backlog title :)

    Looks like some great news today. New Link to the Past looks snazzy, especially since LTTP is my favorite Zelda. SMT4 coming with a strategy guide sounds like a great deal, usually those things are expensive and I haven't had a guide for a game since FF13. Here's to Nintendo making me feel glad I chose their side in the old handheld war.

    M&L Dream Team, Tales of Xillia, and Dragon's Crown in August? Sign me up for that.

    So many RPGs, so little time.

    Dammit Nintendo, I know I'm slow but I'm still working on Fire Emblem and Etrian Odyssey 4! Go make Wii U games or something! Stop taunting me with more 3DS games!

    I made a good choice when deciding to focus on my 3DS this year. Between SMT 4 and Project X Zone, summer will be fun times. That strategy guide book looks sweet. Link to the Past is the only zelda game I've ever beaten, so a sequel seems like a good buy for me. Bravely Fairy Whatever next year will be nice. Earthbound on WII U gives me another reason to get a Wii U eventually. Probably next year.

    A lot of the other stuff I think I'll wait to see how they turn out before getting excited. Reviews and videos, yeah! There keeps being more and more stuff I want and there's only so much I can play.

    Add me to the list of people who are glad that Bravely Default is a 2014 game. Between Dream Team, SMTIV, Link to the Past 2, Pokemon still coming... I'm not going to have TIME to play Bravely Default until 2014.

    Also, Earthbound. My WiiU purchase is assured... because I'd rather pay $300 for a system to pay $9 for Earthbound than to pay $300 for the cart.

    Will the Wii's Virtual Console be able to play Earthbound?

    Pretty unlikely, it sounds like they are only releasing it on the Wii U. They've mostly abandoned the Wii at this point.

    No. Especially no since it offers off-screen play.
