Tales of Crestoria

Bandai Namco Entertainment has recently announced that they would release a new game in the “Tales of” game series. it is Tales of Crestonia. The predecessors of this series have performed very well on the mobile platform. As we have seen that there is usually a mobile game named “Tales of” that is released every few months. Bandai Namco has revealed that Tales of Crestoria is a “completely original” game, with the aim of launching a new “Tales of” on the mobile platform. As expected, Tales of Crestoria is a great adventure game with free in-app purchases.

The main theme of this game will be Crime, in which the main character will suffer the certain burdens of responsibility through some form of crime to protect his dears. In the game, the residents are required to wear magical devices called Vision Orbs to record everything. These records were sent to a location in the town called Vision Central. When someone’s action calls for a judgment, the person’s record will be displayed then all the citizens will vote on whether this person is convicted or not. If the defendant is found guilty, an enforcer will be sent out to execute the verdict.

The protagonist is called Kanata Hyuga, who is the son of a monk. As with all the main characters, Kanata is a man who stands up to protect the weak people. Therefore, he gets into many troubles. That’s it!

It seems odd that Nintendo and Cygames decided to take North America as part of the distribution area because their games were first available in Asia than in North America and Europe. Dragalia Lost talks about the story of humans and dragons in the imaginary kingdom of Alberia. In the game, the royal family possesses the power to form a treaty with the dragons, borrows the form and uses the powers of the dragon. The protagonist, the seventh prince of the kingdom, is on the journey looking for a dragon to perform the connection and join together to protect the Sacred Shard which is gradually weakening. On this journey, he will meet new friends and face new dangers.

Based on the live-stream, there will be about 60 companions on the journey for the player to get with the Gatcha system. Players will battle in groups of 4 characters, who are selected from many different roles including attack, defence, support and recovery. Characters also have the ability to transform into dragons when requirements are met in battle. At present, there are 5 dragons that have been released, each of which is representing a different dragon element. Instead of just revolving around a campaign for a player, Dragalia Lost also provides online co-op mode for the players to fight the bosses together.

If you put the usual RPG elements aside, the player can relax by building his own town or fortification as it is the way it is called in the game. The different buildings can be built and opened to new functions, even enhancing your team and training more for the dragons!
