Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology
"Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology – It’s been six years since Radiant Historia was released on Nintendo DS in 2011, but it’s time to return to Vainqueur and unlock the time traveling power of the White Chronicle once again in Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology. This beloved classic is an expanded 3DS port of the original game that will contain a great deal of added gameplay/story content, updated presentation, and new ways to experience the adventure! Coming to Nintendo 3DS in early 2018!" - Nintendo
Literally yelling with excitement!! Radiant Historia was and is one of my favorite games period, on par with Fire Emblem, Suikoden Tierkreis and, of course, Golden Sun.
On a more serious note, though, the new art worries me. The old was perfect - both unique as well as giving an actuate impression of said characters' station and personality. This new stuff is next of kin to generic and I fear what that might mean for the game. Rosch's face frankly pains me as he looks like a sullen, spoiled and/or bitter man rather than the rough yet unfailingly kind veteran we all know him as.
Still, I actually like Sonja's new look better; she was painfully thin before and, in addition, the new face conveys more of her fire. (And if that last scene in the above video hints at a romantic relationship between Stocke and Eruca I will tear the White Chronicle apart page by page in wrath.)
