200% More Soul Breeding In Record Of Agarest War 2

By Spencer . November 12, 2010 . 6:06pm

image It seems like Compile Heart pulled a trick out of Aksys’ marketing handbook because their most recent trailer for Record of Agarest War 2 is ecchi to the extreme. The game, just like the other Agarest War titles, is rated CERO C in Japan. Think of that as something close to a "T" rating from the ESRB.

 

While light on features, the ecchi trailer points out Record of Agarest War 2 has 200% more soul breeding than the other games. You can watch the trailer here. (Click "special", the second menu option on the right, and then promotional video – it’s the heart one). If you’re still at work, here’s a battle video to watch.

 

200%!

    I wish the video had a better quality… but these sprites look wonderfull. Also, the girl talking in the video, lol it looks like it was recorded live or something xD

    Edit: Omg, just saw the videos in the page… now i see what you mean about even more ecchi xD… i hope they made the dating sim aspect as well, they surely made it better with agarest zero too… i want it….

    It’s too bad the first game was so monotonously terrible, I think I’m still stuck somewhere on the 2nd Generation and have little motivation to continue. It’s a shame, because an ecchi SRPG series would have that “interesting” quirk much better appreciated if the games themselves were good to begin with. As it stands, it’s such an incredibly small aspect of the game that gets overshadowed by horrible battles and an uninteresting story. Why not go all-out if you’re going to do it at all?

    Between various games I’ve pretty much learned my lesson at this point: to not go near anything Idea Factory touches with a ten-foot pole.

      Actually, I’m pretty sure I’m stuck in the very same place. The forest droned on and on and on and it was enough to drive me nuts to the point of putting down the game.

      It isn’t a game you can just sit down with in one sitting, that’s for sure.

        I think I got through one forest, but then there was another? Or something like that. It all kind of blended together after a while. Into a soup of tedium and disappointment.

        At least I got to meet that girl who was eating sausage on the teaser site. Still not worth my time, though.

          Agarest is a game I can’t really recommend playing more than an hour or two a day of. Too many filler battles. I went all the way and got the true ending, but it still grates me.

          Though, on the plus side, it’s possible to completely avoid every single random encounter in dungeons in the game by simply changing areas. The encounter rate resets whenever you leave the room and come back. If you want all of the treasure though, there are about 3-4 treasures in the game that require you to take enough steps to force an encounter.

            I think I read something about those tricks. Still kind of sucks (okay, so it REALLY sucks) that a player would have to resort to such things, but at least it’s something.

            The “running around in a dungeon” parts were actually kind of my favorite areas, minus the encounters. The innumerable filler encounters on the world map were what got to me.

            I’ll definitely try and get further in the game, because I don’t like “giving up” on games. At least I’ll try to get to the generation where the hero can have wings if you mate correctly, because that’s kinda cool. I’ll more than likely never buy another game in this series, though, because DAMN.

      My thoughts exactly.

      While I fully share your sentiments concerning Idea Factory, they had nothing to do with Agarest. It’s a RED/Compile Heart project.

      • http://twitter.com/#!/Kamiwoo Kamiwoo

        Really? I read it was a collaboration between the three. Actually, their logo shows up at the end of the trailer too, I just checked it.

        It’s still sound advice either way, though!

        Ideafactory did the actual game development and implementation of the SRPG mechanics, so yes, ideaf smell is all over this game.

        RED/Compile heart made up the characters and story and the affection system.

        Compile heart is the publisher.

    Sweet, going to be getting back into the first Agarest now that I’ve finished up Fable 3 and the sequel is looking even better. Looking forward to this one!

  • LORDMATRIX2004

    I will get this game once it comes out for X360 just like I did with Agarest Wars and will be doing with Agarest Wars Zero. I really like this series and am glad they are making more of it.
