When They Aren’t Making Naruto, CyberConnect 2 Make RPGs Like Death God Messiah

By Eugene . October 20, 2013 . 11:00am

 

system_howto_abyss02CyberConnect 2, who’ve made games such as JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle, the .hack series and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm are coming out with their own smartphone game called Death God Messiah. In this semi-3D action-RPG game, players control one of six characters who are Death Gods, humans who are meant to hunt down Demons out for Mankind’s karma.

 

What’s cool is that while the core of the game relies around collecting, leveling and combining cards (Which happen to be women) and crafting new weapons to use, battles are in full 3D.

 

Players select several of their currently drawn cards to combine, powering up their equipped weapon to bash foes into oblivion. Those beautifully drawn 2D art cards make up a specific deck, which you can tweak outside of battle.

 

The game is already out on Android, with a iOS release “Soon” and what’s real cool is the first three seasons of the game’s storyline have been released, with the fourth on the way. Each of these tells a tale that will eventually fully explain what’s going on with the Demons plaguing the Earth and our part in the battles. The six characters will all have a part to play, and are Van, Misaki, Kisch, Nina, Scyne and Tuty.

    One year ago there was a huge confussion in which CC2′s CEO said they were making an RPG and everyone thought it was a new .hack but they quickly denied it. Was he referring to this?

    Maybe it was mobile phone all along…? Damn it, I wanted something on consoles :(

  • Vash bane

    -sees video- this looks really cool …
    -reads article-

    yep I had a feeling it was a mobile game lol but seriously that song was pretty cool I liked it ^^’

  • Ferrick

    … guilty dragon with another name ?

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Wasted talent

    • DyLaN

      This is bordering the “console begging” line, you know.

      And sure, only console are allowed to get pampered and every1 should witch hunt mobile device users.

  • Shady Shariest

    Looks kinda meh…

  • Anime10121

    First of all, that song is <3

    Second, that looked HYPE as hell! CC you port this to a console on PSN or some type and you can haz my monies. Heck you dont even have to change the card focus, just put this on a console and I would buy it :D

    • Ferrick

      sadly, they don’t release the osts for these games, hell i’ve been wanting the ost for guilty dragon and so far, nothing about it

    • DyLaN

      Well, Million Arthur got a PSV port so might happen. Sadly I don’t think the PSV port will get localized.

      • Anime10121

        :(

  • DyLaN

    Not the first card game with 3D battle models. IIRC Kaku-san Sei Million Arthur had it too.

    Though I will get it in a heartbeat if its translated. I’m currently waiting for Million Arthur translation and boy, am I hyped for it.

    • Ferrick

      kakusei had minimalistic 3d animation though, when compared to guilty dragon, it kinda pales in comparison

      it does have a kickass theme though :P

      • DyLaN

        You mean the “Million of Bravery” OP song? Choucho songs are all nice to listen at =)

        • Ferrick

          yep, and i have the album ;D that i bought from the free JPY i got on itunes

          the excalibur strut song does take a while for it to click with me though

  • Devyn

    This look a lot like Guilty Dragon just with monster fights and pre made characters.

  • AuraGuyChris

    You know what they should be making?
    Solatorobo 2.

  • Kaetsu

    I wish they made another .Hack game.

    • Ferrick

      some articles ago, it states that they had added another trademark for a new .hack, so hopefully it’s true… and hopefully it doesn’t include jojo’s battery stamina system

      • Kaetsu

        Yeah I read that. I just hope we don’t have to wait to long for something official

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      They do guilty dragon

  • Demeanor

    Never thought I’d say this one day. but… this smartphone game looks really cool! I’d like to play it! 3D battles, cool art (à-la-Persona 3), seems like there’s story in it, and the music was pure win.
    I guess even tho I still think bigger hw gaming is still king by far, a well made game is a well made game, regardless of platform; let’s just say that even for “just a smartphone game” this was enough to make my inner gamer demon roar :D

    • Ferrick

      you can try it’s “technical” predecessor the guilty dragon, it’s already out on android now

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    In all honesty this looks really good. I would love to hear that they have plans to release this worldwide, but still waiting on Guilty Dragon……… lol

  • iamtehultimatepwnage .

    does anyone know the name of the song?

  • Heropon

    Waste of potential on Smartphone .

  • Spirit Macardi

    I just want to see a new Little Tail Bronx game. So far their release schedule has been something like: “One game every 15 years.”

    Since their Naruto games are guaranteed cash cows, you’d think Namco would lend them some more freedom for risk taking.

  • Jonathan Tse

    i’m here cuz you mentioned Solatorobo. that game is awesome. dat Elh.

    Cyber connect 2 Please bring back the original four dot hack PS2 games in HD form!

    • Guest

      Seriously, a down vote on this?!

      People really have issues these days

  • Tg

    Cyberconnect!! Solatorobo 2 tekudasaiii!!

  • Rafael Budzinski

    …from the looks of it, it’s basically the same as Guilty Dragon. EXACTLY the same thing. Which isn’t bad, I’ve played GD a lot, if DGM would be at least as good as GD, it’ll be worth it.

  • http://www.flavors.me/ericgornicki Eric Gornicki

    This game looks really good! The battle system is awesome! Wish they localize it and port it to PSVita or simply put it on PSN (I can dream…)

  • Hines Green III
