Title: OG Saga: Endless Frontier - Confirmed!
Post by: Ianator on February 05, 2009, 02:01:32 PM
From the Atlus press release (http://www.atlus.com/newsdetail.php?newsID=365):

Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today announced that it has secured the North American publishing rights for Super Robot Taisen® OG Saga: Endless Frontier™ on Nintendo DS™, a sci-fi/fantasy-action RPG side story of the Super Robot Taisen Original Generation games. Embark on a journey in the fascinating worlds of the Endless Frontier along with robots, were-people, mermaids, demons, and humans all living with each other in harmony...More or less. From the fantastic new battle system to the captivating story of alternate worlds and characters bursting at the seams with personality, there is plenty to discover and uncover (*ahem*) in this well-rounded adventure.
 
Unlike most RPG battle systems, players will be engrossed in the interactive, action-packed, fighter-style combat in
Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier. Customizable turn and time-based attacks allow players to administer the ultimate beat down on enemies by juggling them in the air and executing a continuous chain of kicks, punches, slashes, gun attacks, bombs, and more. In addition, players can call on their allies to extend their attack chains to ridiculous lengths.

As a continuation of the Atlus Spoils fan appreciation program, each and every launch copy of
Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier will be a premium boxed release, with a soundtrack CD featuring music from the game included in the final retail package, our way of saying thanks to our fans for their continued support.

Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier is scheduled for release on April 28th, 2009.

Discuss.

Sweet! Well this is going to be a great birthday for me then, I hope it doesn't get pushed back.

Bah, I saw Saga and Frontier in the title and thought that Kawazu was back in action. Thanks for the let-down, jerk.  *Shakes fist of rage*

It's kind of too bad that it's not a very good game

otherwise, I'd be quite excited.

Can't wait for this one (if only I owned a DS, but I'll settle for using Desmume or something like it).

Fanservice does not a great game make.

Unfortunately it sits fiercely in the action RPG category of "enemies have really way too many hitpoints".  It gets really boring, really quick - despite its initial novelty.

My deal is that you shouldn't extend a game by making people do the same action more times in exactly the same context.  It's like in SRWJ, where when you kill a boss they heal to full... like five times.  It's not quite the same, but get the idea.

There's a reason Namco X Capcom didn't do very well.

At least it confirms my suspicions that SCEA was responsible for us not getting Original Generations and OG Gaiden.

Debatable. It could be that Atlus wants to/is localizing them, it just takes more time. Or it could be that, for whatever reason, grabbing VO's takes more money.

Yes, there are a number of possibilities, but I wouldn't totally discount OGs or OGG just yet. The PS2 is still in fairly good health.

Everything I've seen gave me the impression they weren't doing it.

And the sort of vague non-answers they were giving people that asked about it makes me think they aren't allowed to say what happened. Which fits with what I've heard of SCEA licensing, in that you aren't allowed to talk about it.

So they can't come out and say "Yeah, Sony said we can't release this because it isn't a graphics-whore game."

One of those girls is a W Number, I seem to remember something about KOS-MOS appearing, oh, and let's not forget Alteisen Nacht's a boss fight at some point.

Fun stuff, eh?

KOS-MOS and T-ELOS appear with KOS-MOS being part of the party.


Title: Re: OG Saga: Endless Frontier - Confirmed!

KOS-MOS and her exploding bra. Let's not forget the exploding bra.

I doubt that Shion had that put into KOS-MOS. Probably one of Kevin's designs.

Just standard issue.
just look at Aschen.

Actually, you offend me as a Xenosaga buff. It's merely cut.

Please. Shion is TOTALLY into girls, and built KOS-MOS as her personal plaything.
Millions of doujinshis can't be wrong!

Hate to say it, but he DOES have a point with that one.

But clearly there must be an objection somewhere....
We'll just need to find it.

......Nope, I got nothing.

Have I ever mentioned lately that I love you guys?


Title: Re: OG Saga: Endless Frontier - Confirmed!
Post by: alaras on February 10, 2009, 02:47:07 PM
Objection!

Doujinshi are fanmade, and have no bearing on canon, where Shion mostly focuses on guys, and Kevin specifically.


Title: Re: OG Saga: Endless Frontier - Confirmed!
Post by: JayBee on February 10, 2009, 02:48:13 PM
Shion X KOS-MOS is hot and SHOULD be canon.
Over-ruled!


Title: Re: OG Saga: Endless Frontier - Confirmed!
Post by: Derek on February 10, 2009, 03:04:19 PM
Judge: *Nods* I'm going to have to rule with Mr. JayBee on this. Mr. Alaras, I'm afraid I'm going to have to give you a penalty.

*Alaras' lifebar drops by 1/5th*

Post by: Sakura77 on February 10, 2009, 03:08:23 PM
Mr. JayBee, could you point us in the right direction towards said doujinshis?


Title: Re: OG Saga: Endless Frontier - Confirmed!

Just check out Rule 34.  They have some there, buried amongst a whole lot o porn.

The court accepts this into evidence.

*Shion 4koma has been added to the Court Record*


Title: Re: OG Saga: Endless Frontier - Confirmed!
Post by: alaras on February 10, 2009, 11:14:59 PM
I submit that Momo X Ziggy's more canon than Shion X KOS-MOS, since KOS-MOS has never shown any signs of having a sexuality.


Title: Re: OG Saga: Endless Frontier - Confirmed!
Post by: JayBee on February 10, 2009, 11:41:49 PM
Mister alaras, I'm afraid the case is clear.
I am ready to announce my verdict.
The evidence speaks for itself.
On charges of being a lesbian mechaphile, the court finds Shion Uzuki GUILTY.
