Title: Trinity Trigger
聖塔神記(せいとうじんき) トリニティトリガー
Platform: Switch
Genre: Action RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: FuRyu
Summary: What is with Japan and these cringey names dealing with triangles and trinities these days.
Anyway, some comments about the demo, as the full game releases September 15 in Japan:

Very very much a Secret of Mana clone with even the composer for it on board (Hiroki Kikuta). I’d still give it a try since I love the Mana series so much. Honestly, having the same composer is enough for me to want to give it a full playthrough, and seeing the 8 weapon circle ring clinches it hard lol.

I actually just played a couple hours on the demo currently in JP eshop, and it’s still going (I thought it would be over after this boss fight but I guess there might be some more stuff afterwards). Overall, it feels mobile game quality (think Dragalia Lost), but at least I can see getting a whole console game experience out of it, and local coop will definitely be fun. The original price tag for the game is on the expensive side (7,800 yen), so I would expect a lot of content from the full game.

Overall… well, it’s rare to get a good local coop action RPG these days that doesn’t force you to deal with trashy gacha systems, and having a new Kikuta music experience is very welcome in my book. Looking forward to seeing more of this and hope there’s news for a western release (so that I can coop with my hubby who doesn’t read JP~).

Title: Switch: Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Platform: Switch
Genre: RPG
Language: Japanese, English
Company: Gamefreak
Summary: Generally agree with most of the gaming veteran crowd who aren’t overrun with their Pokemon biases. 9/10 for Pokemon standards, only 6/10 by game standards. Basically, if you appreciate anything about Pokemon, I guess it’s worth playing. If not, then abbbsolutely skip lol. I WILL apply the full game standard to my rating here, unlike how I feel a lot of the “bigger” gaming critics out there put out.

Platform: Android / iOS
Genre: Action RPG mobage

Summary: I believe I actually started this around mid-March after they announced there would be a collab with Rays for summer 2021. I guess this is more like a log of significant happenings in my super casual hoarding process??

I didn’t know I needed Kimura Takuya doing all this weird madness but I’m HERE FOR IT.

Title: Ni no Kuni 2
Platform: PSP
Genre: Action RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: Bandai Namco
Summary: Err I played this sometime early in 2019 I think? I completely forgot to write up a review for it probably because I was too preoccupied with other things later on, nothing particularly big or anything though. I think the game took me around 35-40 hours doing the same as I did for the original game, doing whatever sidequests I could do that didn’t involve too much extra work.
