Reminds me of that Monster Hunter RPG. Is this classified has a new Nintendo owned IP? If so, let's kill of Daisy.

Most likely, since they are publishing it

I can almost guarantee it with the relationship regarding Grezzo. But. cannot confirm it until closer to its own release.

But like most new IP, it will be dismissed while arguing Nintendo needs to make new IP, which only means major successful ones, and I doubt this one will go that direction.

Is the the low budget game that is aimed at kids?

Gosh, some people are only here to rant everything in the ground.

Game looks really charming.

while i wouldnt call it "low budget", i do feel like with the art direction taken, it seems like its going to a younger audience.

for me, i would like a rpg like this with mh4u art style. it can be done, why dont they do it?

This looks like fun. Definitely going to check it out!

From what I read, this sounds more like a cross between Tales of and whatever town building BS trash Apps for phones are.

Was hoping for a more Zelda 2 or Doki Doki Panic type deal when they mentioned action RPG style. Whatever, Pass.

Wow, Grezzo's finally working on their own game rather than 3DS Zelda remakes, I'm so proud of them.

It seems like a general trend for most 2nd party teams working with Nintendo.

They help Nintendo out with some evergreen IPs (Mario, Zelda, Fire Emblem, Kirby, Pokemon, etc.) and they eventually get a chance to work on some original IPs (BoxBoy, Pushmo, Codename Steam, Pocket Card Jockey, etc.).

I agree, it's great to see what Grezzo can do when not tied to another IP.

Ehm...sure, but the examples you named are made by HAL, Intelligent Systems and Game Freak.

HAL has been around since forever and have made many games before they first started making games for Nintendo, Intelligent Systems has been a part of Nintendo since the NES days and was partially responsible for things like Fire Emblem and Metroid, and Game Freak has been around since the late 80's and have made games before Pokémon, and have had a few other IPs since 1996 as well.

And, they didn't exactly 'help out' as flat-out create series like Kirby, Fire Emblem and Pokémon.

Looks really fun. Reminds me of Fantasy Life a little bit. However, Nintendo does a really terrible job of demoing their new games. She just walked around town doing nothing for 2/3 of the time

Honestly, I think desert is a bland setting, something that can really only look good with a lot of detail in HD.

The game itself looks neat! I wonder with Grezzo's experience working on the Zelda remakes If the dungeons will feel Zelda-esc.

It's kind of odd just how many DS/3DS games have been in a "chibi" art style. *shrug*

That art style ages the best, to be honest.

You had me at Owl Penguins

This looks really interesting. I'm really happy that this guy is still trying to create his own IP. I love his work.

I hope this game has New Game+ or at least continue on after the end.
