      Let’s not forget people punching each other and love triangles.

  • Ariobimo Wicaksono

    Inoue…There’s going to be some tragedy in the plot. Maybe even a rape scene just like the 555 novel or maybe some dark puzzle plot like Agito. I really hope it’s the latter one.

    Will the game include swimming lessons?

      Naw, fights will just take 90 minutes in order for the characters to power up.

      I got a worse impression, if anything: filler DLC chapters. :P

  • Vash bane

    interesting but I have to say after reading the other article about this game and the main hero’s weapon sound suspiciously like a zanpakuto lol

  • Armane

    So who is going to get amnesia?

    • Koine Nacu

      Alyn (The pink-ish haired fairy girl) has amnesia. It’s stated in her description, I think. Sooo, there we go!

  • Gyro Zeppeli

    Rivers and misunderstandings, but with cute girls.

  • ZekeFreek

    Ch will probably screw it up again regardless.

    • DyLaN

      Sure, let’s label FFF under “bad” even though we haven’t even seen the trailer/gameplay of it.

      • ZekeFreek

        I didn’t say that. “screw it up” could just as easily mean a simply mediocre or even average game.


    Lol… release date so close to sen no kiseki >.>

  • Keko

    I guess we can expect a NISA release on March, 2014, then.

      Awesome avatar XD Nep-nep FTW

  • WyattEpp

    That….actually has some good potential. Remember, people: Screenwriter; not Producer or Director. Think about the Death Note writing, not the Dragonball episode direction.

    • Wtv

      Death Note was a faithful adaptation of the manga. So…It was actually the mangaka writing in 90% of the anime.

      • WyattEpp

        Even so, I would contend a nontrivial portion of that good faith is because Inoue did his job. Comics don’t naturally translate to film especially well; they’re fairly different forms. Comics have much more potential for arbitrarily-ordered chronology (because they’re books- you can jump forward and backward arbitrarily) and lack strict time constraints (because it’s something you read, absorbing the dialogue and implications within the closure happens at your own pace). Film is roughly the opposite in those dimensions.

        • Wtv

          But still, when comes to story, it’s the same. And pretty faithful in dialogues, as I read the manga and watched the anime.

          There are some minor new scenes however, like……L drying Light’s feet.

  • Fire.fire.kun

    From what I remember about Ryuki and Faiz:

    Toshiki Inoue = high body count, lots of drama, crazy plot twists, and possibly psychopaths.

    This game just keeps getting interesting.

    • I know, the writers can easily draw my attention to a game. And in this case, he just makes me even more excited due to his past works.

    • He didn’t write Ryuki; Kobayashi Yasuko did. He only wrote a few filler episodes.

      • Fire.fire.kun

        Sounds like a positive since I didn’t like Ryuki. The story and most of cast are just messed up.

        • I enjoy the Tokusatsu series written by Kobayashi Yasuko. She knows how to foreshadow, build characters and largely maintain a consistent tone in what she writes – even considering how formulaic Toei’s Tokusatsu series have become.

          • Mad_Dog_Yayan

            Her writing can also be pretty boring though, OOO’s middle part is pretty dry and only got back steam during the last few episodes. While I like Den-O, I don’t think it’s really anything special. Go-Busters were kinda lame, especially the characters. Ryuki and Shinkenger on the hand, are really good.

          • Yes, I noticed those, and I think it mainly comes down to the fact that she’s a character-oriented writer. In her stories, it’s the characters that get more focus as well as affect the story progress more than the other way around.

            Which would explain why I love Ryuki; it’s my favorite Heisei Rider series, bar none. Particularly in characters, but especially in how the main hero’s “justice for the sake of justice” motivations are repeatedly challenged until the end where things come full-circle. It’s like a deconstruction of Kamen Rider that’s still a Kamen Rider series; absolutely loved it. Same goes for Shinkenger; even when restricted by all the obligated conventions of the Super Sentai formula, it’s one of the best character dramas in the franchise history. (Of course, part of the credit there goes to the performers, who were able to pull off the scenes they’re given with utmost theatricality.)

          • Fire.fire.kun

            You guys sure know your writers. I really admire that. But regardless, Ryuki is still weird. :P

          • Eh, I can see why it’d feel that way. Ryuki is an entirely different kind in its own franchise, so it can be unfamiliar to get into for fans of the standard formulas. A friend of mine told me a while back that he sat down and watched Ryuki together with his mother, who doesn’t know about Tokusatsu at all, and she turned out to like it a lot. So perhaps familiarity (or lack thereof) with the formulas and recurring tropes of Kamen Rider may play a part here.

  • Fire.fire.kun

    From what I remember about Ryuki and Faiz:

    Toshiki Inoue = high body count, lots of drama, crazy plot twists, and possibly psychopaths.

    This game just keeps getting interesting.

    its over 9000!!

  • My wallet is going to suffer in September…

  • puchinri

    I’m just glad it wasn’t who I thought it’d be at first. I don’t think I remember too much of any Inoue works though, so I don’t know what to think quite yet.

  • “Kamen Rider Screenwriter”

    Did someone say Kamen Rider

    “Toshiki Inoue”


    …Well, he did seem a bit more comfortable with writing a more humorous series like Kamen Rider Kiva. Can’t exactly say I’m looking forward to his dramatic parts though… Regardless, best of luck for his first(?) game story writing role.

    • DyLaN

      What can I expect from his writing?

      • Uh… it’s hard to pin down his overall style, because he’s worked on a number of stuff. But what I noticed from Tokusatsu series he wrote is that the way he writes drama is drawn-out and forced, including throwing in the conflict ball without enough build-up or reasons. But, like I said, this is just what I see in his Tokusatsu stories, and I don’t want those to undermine his chance here, so… just don’t get overhyped, I guess. (Although, I really hope he strikes as far away from KIBA as possible.)

        • DyLaN

          Btw, what up with the river comments? Does the writer have a river fetish?

          • I have no idea. Like I said, I “know” him largely from his Tokusatsu works, and in those series, rivers are just one of the recurring locations. So I can’t say I get what the joke there is.

          • Mad_Dog_Yayan

            The joke is, I think, that whenever a character is about to be struck down by an enemy, they will somehow fall down to a river and emerged okay,

          • LynxAmali


            If a character is fighting near a river, they WILL fall into it at least once per show. Sometimes, more.

      • Mad_Dog_Yayan

        During the beginning his writing is good, the conflict is good, the character are well fleshed out. Jetman and Kamen Rider Agito are pretty much his two best and most famous work. Jetman especially contains some very good villains, either of the noble demon type or the complete monster type. They’re darker than usual Tokusatsu series, but they’re not dark for the sake of being dark. Starting with Kamen Rider Faiz though, I pretty much agree with DrakosAmatras. But like I said, he still write some good works but are a lot more inconsistent compare to his pre-Faiz days.

    • Mad_Dog_Yayan

      He was actually good with dramatic and dark parts when he was writing Jetman and Kamen Rider Agito, those two are awesome and among my favorites. After that though, not so much. Faiz was good at first but then kinda suck, Kiva was mediocre and not funny to be honest, he’s much funnier when writing Changerion.
      His writing on Death Note was also pretty good, but then again it’s an adaptation. But recently he’s getting better again, his writing in Garo Makai Senki episode 4 and Gokaiger episode 28 was very good.
      His new manga that he’s writing and collaborating with Keita Amemiya and Wosamu Kine is also pretty good and very dark. He’s pretty inconsistent, but when he’s good he’s very good.

      • Oh, I know he’s such an unpredictable writer. That’s why I’m not sure what to feel about him working on this.

  • komiko12

    Dragon Ball Z…

    I remember that battle with Frieza which was under time constraints storywise but it would span many episodes.

    • Anime10121

      Yeah, we have ten minutes till the planet blows, but those ten minutes last 6 episodes which was like 2 hours. Oh and lets not forget Goku’s first transformation into Super Saiyan 3 that took the entirety of a 20 minute episode of screaming :P

  • Kevin Schwarz

    Prepare for a lot of clichés…

    • Luna Kazemaru

      you act like this is new in games.

      • Kevin Schwarz

        Sure. But I meant a LOT, implying more than usual.
