When it comes to upcoming video games, I am, by nature, skeptical. It does you no good to become part of the hype machine. If the final game is good and we're having fun, that's all that counts. Until then, we should do no more than cross our fingers and hope for the best. Just knowing that we're actually getting a brand new video game is an event, instead of Cinematic Gun Sequel #2459 and Yearly Franchise Rehash #3196. Please please please don't let this become yet another generic, formulaic clone. Surprise us. Show us something new.
Ni no Kuni is headed to the US just in time for Christmas and New Year's, which is welcome news. Now if the fine folks at Level 5 would only be so kind as bring Ni no Kuni to the Dreamcast, then we'll really be rolling.
