Have any questions? Having played the game thoroughly, I should be able to answer them. Whether you plan to get the game, are on the edge, or are def not going to get it, ask away!

 

I will them answer here but may also answer them (i.e. use your question) in an upcoming podcast depending on the question and if you ask it before the podcast or not. But regardless, go ahead! =)

 

And if you're going to ask "is it good?" and "should I buy it?" please do try to give me a little more to work with—like what you tend to look for in games, what specific element is good or not, etc.

 

Thanks~

I was actually interested in this before it was released/officially announced even, so I guess I'll ask some things.

1. How much FE actually made it in? I heard there was like personas inspired by characters, but not much more than that tbh.

2. How much fan service, good and bad flavors?(good being stuff that will remind players of the series that the game came from, and bad obviously being T&A)

*googles*

 

twitch emote thing? *rolls eyes*

 

thought maybe it had something to do with Eleanor since she's a character, lol

 

best girl is Kiria tho, hands down. I thought Eleanor might be cool but sadly she's just a shallow tsundere who talks about Hollywood all the time and is only somewhat cool cuz of her carnage form and animations, really. Tsubasa is funny but she's not cool and badass like Kiria. and the others aren't even contenders in my book since they're either too young or too old, loool.

plenty. naturally the answer to the question involves slight spoilers, but FE things include:

 

- Characters in the game, each real-world character has an accompanying "mirage" (kind of like a persona I guess)

- there are also enemy mirages based on FE characters, including bosses and others

- classes are all based on FE IIRC

- stats are more FE-based

- weapon triangle is present in its own way

- names of attacks and weapons are inspired by FE

- story becomes more FE inspired and eventually actually ties in with the FE universe to some extent (though it's not really canon)

- couple of renditions of the FE main theme (AKA music) and FE sound effects

- characters are inspired by classes/FE archetypes as well (even their names, though since the names are Japanese that's a bit harder to appreciate)

- an arena

- other references and such

 

might be more, idk

 

2. there's very little tasteless fan service IMO. there's plenty of eye candy with swimsuits and costumes, yes, but for most of the time you can ignore these (except in special cutscenes and such). there are also a couple shoujo-esque moments (like where there are sparkles or hearts or the like--and even male characters get these slightly weird scenes, lol) and of course, there are the singing scenes where characters might be a bit cute, but I don't remember any scenes where there's anime tropes like grabbing someone's breasts, seeing their undergarments, super dumb blushing moments (there are some but it's relatively tame compared to anime), no pole-dancing or the like, probably the worst thing is gravure idols which basically means they are trying to look sexy and stuff but it's nothing especially erotic or accentuated IMO.

 

so in short, there's very little tasteless fan service, but there is still LOTS of eye candy since we're talking about celebrities in the entertainment industry after all, and it's still very anime-like.

 

good fan service is present from both series, but it's probably got a bit more direct FE inspiration since the core is more SMT, if that makes sense, and it's still not SUPER present--it's very much its own IP/game that one could enjoy even if they didn't know the characters, IMO.

 

for me as a long-time FE fan the FE fan service, despite not always being present, really hit home when it did show up--especially when it came to familiar characters that weren't worthless so basically characters not from Awakening, but also songs/sounds, classes, and weapons. SMT is more embedded into the gameplay and to some extent the enemies, not so much the story but there's still some level of appeal to SMT fans.

What other FE characters are in the game, besides Chrom, lady-of-a-thousand-names, and Cain? Serene's Forest seems to only have pre-release information still.

I'll answer this but I won't put it in the podcast cuz spoilers.

 

...

 

actually there are so many I'ma just link to the list here (yay for sites that aren't Serenes—also lol at "lady-of-a-thousand-names", I use "Sheeda" generally but yeah it's technically Caeda in the U.S. and Shiida elsewhere with other variations, lol, thanks for reminding me about that silliness... XP)

most of the Awakening pics are... actually kinda lame IMO, with Shadow Dragon picks not necessarily being lame but that game has some dry/poorly developed characters so ._. thankfully everyone seems to come into their own at least a little bit in this game, even if the mirage personalities are kind of played safe (I think ATLUS maybe didn't want to hurt their images at all, take risks, etc. so that's why they didn't really do much to develop the mirage's personalities' compared to the actual modern-world characters' personalities)

*checks said link*

 

Interesting...

 

 

also lol at "lady-of-a-thousand-names", I use "Sheeda" generally but yeah it's technically Caeda in the U.S. and Shiida elsewhere with other variations, lol, thanks for reminding me about that silliness... XP)

Having been introduced to her ages ago as "Sheeda" from the fans, I kind of prefer it as well. I certainly don't get where they came out with Caeda, except that someone told me that's actually how "Sheeda" is pronounced. Brawl translated her name to Shiida... At this point I don't even know what to call her anymore. lol. I just don't want to call her "Caeda."

Makes sense. I certainly do commend them for that. I would much rather a company play it safe than to completely ruin it. (I have seen far too many video game characters suffer from a change of companies/staff and have their personalities completely changed as a result. And it's usually because the staff didn't even try. *glares at Spyro: A Hero's Tail*)
