Etrian Odyssey IV released!

Well, actually it released on Tuesday but better late than never ^^; You got your copy? Cuz I got mine~ With the pre-order artbook and music CD. There's some nice stuff in the artbook, including messages from the music composer and Daisuke Kanada from Atlus. The music CD actually has the rough work of the music in the game before it was fully orchestrated. Which this is the first game in the series to have fully orchestrated music. I think it's very interesting that these tracks created with a synthesizer first became fully orchestrated in the end. I'm looking forward to listening to the tracks and then hearing the final products in the game itself. Anyways, enjoy the game everyone! I've gotta beat Etrian Odyssey III first before I start this one ^^; But expect more on this in the future~

Pokemon, Digimon, and other news~

It's been an interesting past few weeks in video games and other news. And I'm here to share some of it and my thoughts on subjects. Especially the return of one of my favorite anime series in the US~

First off, it's some Pokemon news regarding the new Pokemon X and Y games coming out worldwide in October.
It seems Eevee has a new evolution in the new games. And this could possibly be the revealing of a new type or possibly types. We haven't had any new types since Dark and Steel in the 2nd generation games a long time ago at this point. This would definitely add some great new depth and freshness that the Pokemon series needs. Gotta add new things in order to keep a series going strong. I'm very much looking forward to further news on this subject. We'll just have to stay tuned on this~

Next up is Digimon news~
It seems that Digimon World Re:Digitize is being ported to the 3DS this year. The game originally came out July last year in Japan on PSP but never came here obviously. Here's to hoping that this port together with another announcement will mean a localization finally. What's the other announcement? Well, the 6th season of the Digimon anime is finally coming to the US this year under the title Digimon Fusion instead of Xros Wars in Japan. It's set to air on Nickelodeon which I can't really complain about that. Saban is the one to buy the rights so to me it's in the right hands once again. Season 3 was the last one to be produced by Saban so I'm glad to see the series come back to them finally. Not that 4 and 5 were bad but it's still nice to see Saban once again. The series to me is still the best in their hands.
Digimon is back! Can't wait to see its glorious return~

In other random video game news, Etrian Odyssey IV comes out this Tuesday! Had mine preordered on Amazon since November. Dragon's Crown hasn't seen much news but apparently Atlus released a new teaser trailer for it. Tales of Xillia is possibly seeing a quarter four release. Probably December some time. But we'll see on that since it is Bamco. Anyways though, that's pretty much it for this post. A long awaited one since my last post but better late than never I guess! Till next time, everyone~
