I can't see the images. NintendoEverything.com does not allow Hotlinking.

After visiting NintendoEverything.com though, the project looks a lot like a Monolith Soft project. Big, open RPG. Looks more western/medieval, almost classic Final Fantasy stuff. Kind of like a technology-less Xenoblade.

Oh well, looking forward to learning what this is all about.

I've heard their early concept art isn't always indicative of how the game will shape up. I saw the images the other day, looked really nice.

Anything like old school FF sounds good to me. Apparently this may be an action RPG?

Good sign:

Monolith is recruiting staff who can take on the challenge with them of releasing a title for the global market.

Bottom pic reminds me of Eryth Sea. Which is cool.

I thought I read something about this being an action game over at GoNintendo or somewhere, but I can't seem to find it now. Either way I'm down for whatever this is. Love Monolith.

As long as it's on the Switch, sounds/looks good to me!

But it looks exactly like their "brand image" lol.

@J.K. Riki The rumor is that it is more of an action game than an RPG. But who knows. Certainly artwise it doesn't really scream "different", especially when you think back to Baten Kaitos and such.

Maybe it's trying to appeal a bit more to the western audience?

@carlosrox
Their statement sure could be interpreted that way. That kind of stuff always worries me. I'm hoping this is more about making the game accessible to a wider audience rather than actively trying to cater to 'the west'.

Even an action-RPG wouldn't feel that far off from Xenoblade, unless they're making more of a pure action game with no RPG elements. Either way, it's always nice to see a project from them.
