There are games that just have you hooked from that first
trailer, Games that seem God like in comparison to others, games that you know
nothing about, with the exception that you want them. My Criteria: the games existence has to have
been confirmed; Things like release dates, character names, and features must
be unknown; the less that is known about this game, the better.
And with that out of the way, here is my top five list of
those games for me (at this point in time).
5. The Legend of Zelda Wii U
We all know it’s coming, yet we all have no idea WHAT’S
coming. I remember hearing in the past that they’re going to try to shake up
the LOZ formula in a number of ways; For some reason, I want to say that
Dungeon order, and Multiplayer were mentioned? Either way, this is a definite must
buy for everyone with a Wii U, and I suspect that it will be this game that
makes the system.
4. Persona 5
Persona 5, which is arguably the JRPG equivalent of Half
Life Three, was announced late last year, and with only that tidbit of
information, fans have been waiting patiently. It’s okay Atlus, just to know it’s
a thing is enough for us… well, that and the trailer.
3. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem
(deviant art is great, ain't it?)
The biggest strategy JRPG franchise and the most hardcore
JRPG franchise coming together to kick @ss and take names in what might be the
smartest crossover since Ace Attorney and Professor Layton. More so than the
other games on this list, a lot can be deduced about this game, especially from its trailer. This game is
being mainly developed by Atlus, so that means that the SMT influence will be
more prevalent than that of FE.
I’d also like to point out the possibility that this will
come to resemble the Devil survivor series, one of the SMT spin offs. In it,
you move around on a grid and “attack” enemies, similar to Fire Emblem.
However, once you attack the enemy, you are taken in to the classic turn based
battle system of SMT (it’s only for one turn though, but you get the idea).
2. Zero Escape 3
I laughed. I cried. I loved both 999: 9 persons 9 hours 9
Doors and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward. Some might say that because both
games set up for a sequel that they’re just being sell outs with sqeuel-itis. Those
people are wrong. Some things were just made to be trilogies, and this series
is no exception.
1. Monolithsoft’s X
All I need to know about this game is that it’s the sequel
to Xenoblade Chronices. And I also have this amazing trailer. And a 2014
release date. My body, my body is ready.
That's it for today. Check back in tomorrow for my final 27/27.
