Today I got in the mail Agarest Senki for the PS3 which I had pre-ordered some months ago in order to get a big discount. Of course after I knew there was going to a Collectors Edition for Europe with an art book, characters card and poster I had to make my order. For those that do not know Agarest Generations of War (western name), this is a strategy JRPG, with a battle grid, combination attacks, special skills and so on, the game also has some dating sim gameplay so that our generation continues as in getting married to the girl you choose (lol). When I started playing, the first thing that came into mind was Cross Edge, the menus are the same thing (the game makers are the same) but the battle system is was more simple, plus we can bring six characters into battle.
The game only has Japanese language but everything else is in English, so if you’re one of those that like Japanese games but don’t want to listen to Japanese because you won’t understand the story even having subtitles (it seems people these days are too lazy to read subtitles) than don’t buy it because this game was made to a very specific group of gamers that like these sorts of games.
If you want to get the Collectors Edition be fast because this will be the only release, Ghostlight won’t print any more of them.
The game box is quite thick and big.
Here is the entire loot, Deunan and Advanced Hazel not included XD.
The opening is the typical JRPG opening.
Here is the famous wedding scene and the reason why the game is 15+ with mature content 😛 .
