Ouch. Ah well, it can't be worse than Dual Phase Soukakurou, based on the live stream demo I saw a couple of weeks ago. I'm still getting it though.

Anyway, seriously, BPA reminds me a lot of Odin Sphere. I wonder if Hero Prinny will make a special guest appearance?

Hmm...I don't remember having allies in Odin Sphere though, but yeah, it does kinda.

I'm sure there will be cameo battles at least.

I was referring to the art style and setting. The gameplay is indeed different.

Yes, it is customary to have special guest bosses in NIS games. I just thought of Hero Prinny because he too starred in 2 2D adventures.

The artstyle is actually the thing that is furthest away from Vanillaware though, I wouldn't have compared the artstyle to it :lol:

My eyes are weird like that. You are correct about the art style being different. The Red Princess sort of reminded me of Velvet. Setting it is then.

Now I wonder how Asagi will make an appearance :lol: (Legasista is one of the few games she hasn't appeared in from what I can remember). It would be great if she even mentioned how she thought Project Arcadia would involve her being the main character.

And the Asagi quest for a main character spot, that is not a side-quest, will soon continue.

She'll probably be throwing a fit...resulting in the princess (does she even have a name yet? :P) having to take her down :lol:

@OverG - Yeah...I'll give you the setting, a bit anyways...remember that Odin Sphere was using the Norse mythos for their setting...while this seems to be purely fantasy

The protagonist's name is apparently Princess Plum. Her loyal citizens however call her "Pucchan".

Unless there is another Tokitowa, it did better than some of NIS' lastest releases.
~37k copies sold of Tokitowa by its second week.
Legasista debuted at bit under 10K its opening week.
Fate Paradox had ~31k units sold by its second week.
Zillions had ~8k units sold by its second week.

That was the first thing you thought of :P ? I was actually thinking it sounds similar to another princess (one who is always captured by a giant fire breathing...turtle?).

Some, not all, which is why I didn't say all of NIS' non-Disgaea releases

@will - Peach? Nah...I played Clue recently :P

A turtle-dragon hybrid to be exact. I know, needless correction but the dude rules! also, hyped to play as Peach in Mario 3D World.

Anyway, I'll just call Plum The Red Princess because it makes her sound more badass. I would not use Crimson because she's adorable. Also, I still miss RED.

Huh. So Tokitowa did reasonably well for a niche title. Emphasis on the word "reasonably".

Honestly, I'm looking forward to GFP more than Tokitowa... I want to know if my personality interpretations are anywhere close to accurate. As for this game... well, when NISA puts it out, I'll definitely be buying. ^^ Plum is cute and looks like she'll be kicking plenty of butt, so yeah.
