Skies of Arcadia HD news (GAF topic)

Postby Ziming » Thu Nov 22, 2012 5:16 pm

A GAF topic was bumped with news that SoA is the next game to be treated in HD. The trademark to the game was renewed earlier this year in July.

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.ph ... tcount=350

My colleagues from Gamereactor Deutschland write at their monthly rumor mill section (printed mag) that this is indeed coming soon. Reliable source close to SEGA told them. No date mentioned, but soon. Thus, TM renewal was also due to this.

No scans allowed, so there you have it - DE gaffers can easily confirm for sure :)

I played this game almost two years ago for first time. It was on my wish list of Dreamcast but I never bought it. I just forgot it was there but I can tell that even in 2011 I experimented one of my best RPG games.

Skies of Arcadia is awesome. I really love the world, the characters, the ships, the music, the story... Glad to see it in HD.

Oooh! Deffo gonna pay attention to this, SoA was/is in my top five! Hopefully they don't bollox it up with the upgrade, though, it was quite an artful game and able to create great atmospheres and "scenes" rather a lot (matched by the pretty top-notch soundtrack), which I feel could be easy to mess up if tampered with. An HD Dark Rift if done right would be awesome though...

Sega has been been pretty good with recent ports. They recently fixed a problem with controls for Nights HD.

Only bad news is that this is one of the 2 games which Ben Harborne talked about, in regards to fans demanded ports. No guessing what the other game was.

Looks like in them videos he was just being an ass and slagging off Shenmue, and its fans too, since sorry, but theres no way in this world as great a game SOA is, its fanbase isnt bigger than Shenmue. Way to go Sega. Honestly pisses me off how that company works. :???:

...what do you two know? And why'd my post get moved? I was implying that simply calling someone a credible source doesn't give them any shred of credibility whatsoever, so it could be bullshit.


EDIT: I called myself bullshit...

Cool. Already have the game twice on the 2 consoles released on. Still want a SOA2. I need to get VC just because it has Vyse in it.

Good news in the sense this pretty much leaves all but Shenmue. Plus Skies is a great game. Nice to see an epic RPG getting a re-release in this fashion.

I used to joke that Sega would end up porting Toe Jam and Earl before Shenmue, but that's actually happening now. So really, what's left? :???:

Also, Ziming/Peter...if you have non-public info that you aren't sharing (sounds pessimistic anyway), the least you can do is not make vague, public references to it. Shame [-X [-(

Just spill it. Kikizio thing was in 2005 when people still had hope. At this point any disappointing news is a shrug of a shoulder. So spill it
