There has been many games announced recently, and thus here is my list of games not yet released that I'm interested in order of their release dates:
*In the Nintendo Titles section, everything is a must buy for me
**In the Sony Titles section, I placed some kind of indicator indicating my level of interest for each game
X (Wii U)
We know very little about the title, but being as I enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles so much, I do believe this game should be great.
Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)
Yet another Mario Kart game? Sure, why not? Although this isn't the main reason I'll be getting a Wii U, I have enjoyed pretty much every Mario Kart game to date, and playing with friends is especially fun. We might even hold tournies featuring this game at my college once this comes out~
Super Smash Bros. (Wii U)
The reason I'm getting a Wii U, the game looks amazing so far from what I've seen so far which is admittedly close to nothing besides 2 mock battles. I am really interested in playing as the new Wii Fit Trainer which was announced as well as Mega Man(obviously). Of course Pikachu was easily confirmed, so I can only hope for the neigh impossible chance that Lyndis will be playable...
Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem (Wii U)
There isn't much I can say here. Anybody that knows me can tell that I'm a huge fan of Fire Emblem to extreme levels...I am just really curious as to how the game will play out and how does the game decide what characters can we use? I do have to admit however that I've sadly never played a Shin Megami Tensei or Persona game so some fanservice and references may be lost on me when I play the game.
Yarn Yoshi (Wii U)
I like Yoshi...
Dragon's Crown [Famitsu DX Pack] (PS3) *purchased
Dragon's Crown feels like a rare throwback to the sidescrolling beat 'em ups I enjoyed growing up so I had to pick it up...also if anybody is wondering, I am definitely picking the Elf :)
Majo to Hyakkihei [Limited Edition] (PS3) *purchased
The combat interests me and so does the story to an extent. I wonder how technical the combat really is? Either way it does seem to look pretty enjoyable...and the art is as beautiful as always with this company
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate [Red & Blue Limited Edition] (PS3) *very low interest
As great as this seems to be, it is pretty expensive...couple that with the fact that I own both the Vita and PS3 versions of the original version is making me leave this for last. I doubt I will ever get this title, but I may pick it up way down the line if there are no games in the horizon that interests me(an impossibility)
Fairy Fencer f [Limited Edition] *moderate interest
Truth be told, I was highly looking forwards to this title, however "Arcadias no Ikusahime" outshines this title for me, but I do want to definitely pick this up later.
Arcadias no Ikusahime (PS3) *high interest
Personally, I think this game looks amazing, and I always welcome more sidescrolling action games :)
Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Taisen Sangokushi Engi [Limited Edition] (PS3) *high interest
For those not familiar with the "Koihime Musou" series, it is basically a large parody based on the novel entitled "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". There is an anime series with multiple seasons released, but I feel like the character development and anime themselves are shortchanged and mediocre. Not only that, but all real violence is removed in the anime despite its source being all about war... If you want to get the full experience, I would look into their Visual Novels as it's a blend of VN eroge with strategy RPG elements(selecting formations in battle, battle paradigms, etc.). Anyways, this is a spinoff of the franchise as a 2D fighter so it's a must have for me as a fan of the VNs.
Anime for those interested: http://myanimelist.net/anime/4262/Koihime%E2%80%A0Musou
Musou Orochi 2 Ultimate (PS3) *low interest
I would be more interested in this game if there weren't so many other great titles coming out. I was gifted Musou Orochi 2(Warriors Orochi 3) for free from a friend and I'm totally interested in the promised new storyline, new characters, and battle mechanic twerks. However, seeing as I've already seen the majority of what the game will have to offer, I will only get this game after a price drop or once I get other titles that I want
Exstetra (Vita) *high interest
There isn't much seen from the game when regarding actual battles asides from a couple seconds in various trailers and some screenshots, but it seems to have a decent battle system in place. The art is also beautiful, and Claris sings the theme of the game which is always a nice extra plus.
Chou Jijigen Geimu Neptune Re: Birth 1 (Vita) *low interest
I would be more interested in this game, but this is basically the same deal as Musou Orochi 2 as where I've beaten the original game before, so I feel like I should pay attention to the newer titles as opposed to remakes.
Drag-On Dragoon 10th Anniversary Box (PS3) *high interest
This is probably my most anticipated title(Drakengard 3), I love all of the games in the series including Nier, although I do wish I could play Nier Replicant in addition to Gestalt which is what we got overseas. The plot seems interesting, and I like the deep backstory behind the main character that they created
Final Fantasy 13 [Lightning Ultimate Box] (PS3) *moderate interest
Val would love this...Anyways, I am one of the few who actually enjoyed FFXIII and its sequels so this appeals to me greatly, also it's an easy way to get the JP copies of the series in one go, and the extra goodies such as the figurine looks great. I guess I'm kind of fortunate as this is the last game, because as great as it looks...if there were to be a 4th game in this story, I would have probably gotten tired of it by then and never play until the end.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd (PS3) *high interest
This is a must-buy for me seeing how much I enjoyed the games prior to this one. Hopeful "1925" and "1/6" makes the cut, but I'm extremely doubtful especially of the former. I only wish that one day Super Sonico will get a game like this as I much prefer her voice to any of the Vocaloids.
*Pic of Super Sonico will be added at the end for those who don't know who she is
Super Heroine Chronicle (PS3) *moderate interest
This is basically a crossover of various anime franchises(plus Sonico as she doesn't have an anime) and a few original characters into an RPG. The idea seems interesting, so I'm keeping a lookout for it at the current time.
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this short blog about what I'm looking forwards to. Feel free to reply and comment :) ~
