Yay! Now there's at least some hope for Lufia to be in the next Super Smash Brothers!

Petitions hardly, if ever, work (one rare exception is in the case of Kim Possible, Season 4). And why petition Nintendo, anyway? Petitioning Nintendo won't do a **** thing! It's Taito (or perhaps Square, now that Square bought out Taito) that owns the Lufia franchise in the first place, so you'd have to ask them to make a new game.

Anyway, as far as RoL goes... Why am I the only one that actually likes the game...? It's not the best, no, but I thought it was pretty good overall. Haven't beaten it yet, but I still like it.

Now, TLR wasn't too bad... but the probably is that it's so repetitive. It doesn't have the puzzle-solving aspect that existed in RotS and it was basically the same thing over and over again--travel X number of floors, battle beasty, travel another X number of floors, rinse, repeat, until beating the dungeon, then head back up again and continue to the next objective.

The game's plot is another thing, as well. Now, that's not to say I didn't like it... but it was simply boring all the way until the ending. Before that it was basically "travel to new continent, beat the Sinistral, rinse, repeat," UNTIL the very ending where the whole plot is explained. However, before that, it was mostly a bore. The battles were the best part, though. I like the battle system, but it was just... the battle system got boring after a while.

ROL isn't *that* great, and it's hardly comparable to RotS, but compared to TLR I actually like it a lot better. ROL's job system is kinda corny, but it's not bad. The monster system is a pretty cool feature, too, and definitely helps early in the game when I've only got, like, one character. The battles are about on-par with Lufia 1. TLR was better battle-wise, but ROTS was probably the best. ROL did botch the IP system, though. That was best in RotS, but TLR's IP system wasn't too bad, either. Oh, and the plot seems pretty interesting (and yes, I have read later into the story), too. Probably the weakest plot thus far, but at least there's more action early on that TLR, as opposed to "rinse, repeat" all the time.

Any-way... just my thoughts. And I don't think the reason you don't have a lot of votes in the petition is because there aren't a lot of Lufia fans left. It's more likely that hardly anyone votes in petitions, and the petition seems to be only available here. There mostlikely are a lot less Lufia fans, but that doesn't mean there still aren't quite a bit left.

Well, I'm sure that Ruins of Lore wasn't too much of a failure (it is over-criticized), neither was The Legend Returns. However, when it comes to my quality (or official's quality) it is quite strict and neither games pulled through. TLR is average and RoL is below average. I can say this for both games:

They FAILED to IMPROVE the franchise. I would understand The Legend Returns however, even if Ruins of Lore was a slight improvement it still failed to enhance the series into something greater or equal to it's previous titles.

This message was posted on September 13, 2008. The original post started September 10, 2007. The total number of signatures on the online petition as of today is 75. It has already been over a year, you think they would've noticed it by now? With the way things are going many will say this, there will not be another Lufia game.

[So says the pessimistic fanboy, who knows what will be in the future? Maybe a game, maybe a FAN game *looks at Dekar the Great* but still it might have some future titles non the less.]

At least keep the forum alive by keeping an eye for other RPG titles.

Neverland is in charge of the Estopolis Team which is owned by Taito which is owned by Square Enix. It just so happens that NATSUME is the Worldwide publisher of Neverland games. The petition was for Neverland and NATSUME directly, not Nintendo. Didn't you even look at the petition?

Yeah, that's pretty much my thoughts. They aren't that bad, and Ruins of Lore is definitely underrated (or overcriticized), but I do agree that they simply did not stack up to the past games.

That comment was primarily directed at people referring to Nintendo. I figured people would point this out, but that's not what I was saying. I didn't bother reading the petition itself; my comment was directed at other people who were then commenting on the petition.

As far as this whole thing goes, though, I did not realize it was first posted a year ago. I saw the topic, saw some stupidity, so I commented on it. I didn't realize it had been recently bumped.

I know there will be another Lufia game in the future either officially or by my own hands...

Also, did you sign the petition?
