Looks amazing, exciting to see what Vanillaware has come up with this time!
I was actually thinking this myself lol
I love how I went from having like no new SRPGS to drowning in them the past two or so years, keep them coming
The whole "rebirth" slogan is just marketing, but I am interested in seeing how all the gameplay elements tie into each other.Im...confused. It is a Vanilaware game, sure. but the characters look more "general anime" then usually it feels like, and it is positioned as the "rebirth" of tactical RPGs... not like Diofield Chronicles, Fire Emblem, Triangle Strategies or Ogre Battle Reborn aren't games from the last...3 years, with FFT being rumored.
I'll keep track of it.
Oh, by the way, wheres Muramasa / Odin Sphere?
I agree on both counts. The game looks great, but how the hell did they come up with "Unicorn Overlord" as the title? It just sounds wacky lol.The game looks awesome and will prob be a day 1 purchase from me.
That being said, I could help but laugh out loud when the narration went from the friendly sounding Nintendo voiceover to the more serious, deep-voiced narrator and then hearing him end the trailer with a serious sounding "UNICORN OVERLORD"
This started well before Switch (shoutout to Infinite Undiscovery!)Looks really cool, probably the highlight as far as new new games revealed during the Direct.
That name though… woof. One thing the Switch should be remembered for is starting this trend of word salad names for jrpgs.
In addition to being marketing language, this game appears to be the successor to Ogre Battle 64. I interpreted that wording to be them saying "hey, I know we don't have the rights that that other IP that this totally looks like....but we won't stop you from believing that we've relaunched that series!"The whole "rebirth" slogan is just marketing, but I am interested in seeing how all the gameplay elements tie into each other.
Yeah, it's kind of funny how Atlus used to hold the rights to the Ogre Battle series until Quest was bought out by Square Enix and now they're helping to create a game that could, from the looks of it, easily fit in with that series.In addition to being marketing language, this game appears to be the successor to Ogre Battle 64.

Unicorn Overlord = Overlord of the UnicornUnicorn Overlord?
Did they choose two random words and put them together? I mean it looks fantastic, but that name is terrible.
Overlord: Someone who exerts great authority, a Lord.
Unicorn: In game Ring of the Unicorn. Inspired by Wagner Ring of Nibelum/Nibelung?
The switch has literally given me an immense amount of backlog. I can't play it this October because I have another game that I haven't opened yet (sealed) and the expiry for the free DLC is this October so I might play that first. The game in question: https://www.nintendo.com/store/products/ultra-kaiju-monster-rancher-switch/. I wish Nintendo would give us another Fossil Fighters.one of the best games ever made, you are going to experience a wild ride
Muramasa (C'mon Marvelous), Dragon's Crown and Odin Sphere on Switch would be peak. Switch would finally be worthy of the title of Vita sucessor.As for your question I think it's only a matter of time until we see Odin Sphere Leifthrasir and, possibly, Dragon's Crown on the Switch now that Atlus and Vanillaware have seen some success with 13 Sentinels and are releasing this simultaneously with the other consoles. As for Muramasa Rebirth, that's up to Marvelous.
I have to admit I now find myself eating my own words.
My first reaction to the game's art style and visuals was way off the mark. It looks good actually.
I guess overexposure to Vanillaware-like art in "less fortunate" games had me too judgmental in a weird way, ahahah.
Definitely interested in the title as of today.
I was referring to imitators of the style in the mobile f2p space and outside of it. Overtime that has cheapened the look of you ask me, coupled with Vanillaware arguably doing it again and again with a slight but not huge evolution.Dunno what "less fortunate" exactly means, but if it's in regard to off putting character designs, then i'm sorry to burst the bubble right now. I think there won't ever be a Vanillaware game without at least a few of those.
