  • akiko_sakuraba

    Guess no Dark Cloud again this year…

    • Christopher Nunes

      Ah, another fan of those games. They were great… I want to see another one like it! Dark Cloud 3 please Level-5!

      • Anime10121

         Yep, dont know why they chose to go with a new ip series for PS3 with WKC, when Dark Cloud was indisputably the better series.  Heck people were literally BEGGING for a Dark Cloud 3 even after WKC was announced.  Sadly it seems Dark Cloud is one of Sony’s RPG ip’s doomed to sit in a closet with doors never to be opened again (along with Legend of Lagoon and Legend of Legaia). :(

          I can see why they chose WKC over DC but that doesn’t mean it’s the better game. I honestly don’t know many people that REALLY liked WKC. I didn’t play the games but judging the from the trailers alone, I can tell I wasn’t going to like it. It seems so generic and bland.

          • Anime10121

             I had the opposite impressions of yours, the trailers had me hyped (at least for the first WKC), and I was excited for a new property!  I even figured it would be better than Dark Cloud from the trailers alone, then I bought the game, and soon realized that the game, for all intents and purposes, was CRAP.  It had potential to be good, it, nor its sequel, ever reached that potential unfortunately.  I would LOVE to see a new Dark Cloud though, as long as they dont change the battle system from its action or graphical base, cel shading on this gen of consoles looks lovely!  Dont know why more dev’s dont use the technique this gen.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I agree… WKC had potential but sadly they didn’t utilize it. I really like the character Miu and wouldn’t been an excellent new permanent character to the party but they didn’t do it (I really like her so much I wish our Avatar character could’ve gotten a more closer relationship to her, and more budding relationship with the other cast).

            Dark Cloud… I love 1 and 2, both were good and I find 2 to have better features but I MISS the Duel System from DC1 and the water using to heal your throat.

    • MrRobbyM

      Well, you shouldn’t really be hoping for one anyways. At least not anytime soon. I have a feeling that if fans are vocal enough, we might see another Dark Cloud game or a spiritual successor at some point this gen. I never played the games but I do know it has plenty of fans so it’s definitely possible.

      • akiko_sakuraba

         The funny thing is, the official Dark Chronicle artbook has a teaser for Dark Cloud 3, with character sihlouettes and everything, but they write that they’re not sure it’ll ever get made.

  • Eddie Dominguez

    lol! for the vita!! its really interesting that level-5 isnt announcing anything for the vita.anyhow,its also interesting that most games are action/adventure types and none are rpgs…someone correct me if i am wrong?

  • Alright, get your butts on localizing Professor Layton and the Legacy of Super Civilization A pronto! Like, as soon as it’s finished! No, WHILE you’re finishing it!

    I hate the 1-2 year wait between Layton games… :P

  • C’mon Dark Cloud Collection *crosses fingers*

  • Did the ‘Lightning’ in the title make anyone else think of FFXIII? :P

    • You know ‘Inazuma’ means Lightning, right? :P That was the point of the title. 

      • anthony apduhan

        I want Inazuma Eleven and GO in America why? I want to pinch Tenma’s cute face so hard… Also Dante Basco’s voice (voice of Zuko and Jake Long) for Tsurugi Kyosuke.
