Information from Interview

Postby News System » Thu Nov 19, 2009 2:49 pm

Notes:<br>
- Hajime Kojima is the producer of Estpolis DS<br>
- Naoyuki Ukeda is the main programmer from the first Lufia game, XLION Engineer and Trick Constructor from Lufia II and is also listed for Special Thanks in Lufia TLR.<br>
- Masahide Miyata is the Director and Scenario writer from Lufia I, II and TLR<br><br>

Anyway, quoted from http://zepy.momotato.com/2009/11/18/new ... e-details/ <br><br>

# Square Enix asked them if they would like to do a new Estpolis game<br>
# The second game’s system was a lot more refined, the scenario and music were well liked, and it took place before the first game too, so we decided to use the second game as the motif (Kojima Hajime)<br>
# We didn’t want to do a straight port (Ukeda Naoyuki)<br>
# Square Enix told us that we’re free to do whatever we want (Ukeda)<br>
# So that’s what we’ll do! (Ukeda)<br>
# Turn based command battle systems aren’t new anymore, so we’re making it an action rpg now (Kojima)<br>
# It’s not just a remake, we’re rebuilding the story, the characters, and the world settings (Miyata Masahide)<br>
# The hadou weapons will be a key component of the story, the world is different from the SFC version (Miyata)<br>
# The bottom screen will only be used to switch characters (Kojima)<br>
# The game will revolve around the D-pad more than the touch pen (Kojima)<br>
# Boss battles will use two screens, it has its own special code for that part (Ukeda)<br>
# Boss battles will be hard if you don’t know what to do against each one of them (Miyata)<br>
# “It will satisfy action game players, but players that are bad with action games will be okay too” by Kojima<br>
# Scenario is based on the second game, there are parts where we are deliberately letting them say the exact same words as in the original game (Miyata)<br>
# But basically, everything is rewritten (Miyata)<br>
# The number of towns that are appearing in the game is different from the original two games (Miyata)<br>
# There will be parts in the game which will make fans of the series smile (Miyata)<br>
# Miyata has surprisingly not changed at all. He’s just embarrassed reading his scenario from 15 years ago (Ukeda)<br>
# The music is being brought over from the original two games (Ukeda)<br>
# We changed the sound quality without messing with the melody line (Ukeda)<br>
# The main staff from the SFC versions are making this game. It’s rare to have something like that 15 years after the last game (Ukeda),<br>
# Stuff such as “Mahou no XXXX Magical XXXXXX” from the original are still in the game (Kojima),<br>
# We changed a lot in the game, but we constantly kept in our minds that “we should keep the parts that made the series what it is” (Kojima)<br>

That sounds really promising! :D
So, two questions... what are hadou weapons? Something like IP?
And what do they mean by Mahou no XXX Magical XXX?

I wonder if they keep the "Sir" joke. I mean when Maxim keeps calling Guy "Sir Guy" and then Guy tells him to stop doing that, and the same happens with Dekar.

Lufia I Hero had a similar scene where he calls Jerin "Miss Jerin" and Wain also had a scene like that in TLR but I forgot where.

Which basically means they'll port the puzzles he designed with basically no changes, and then add new ones (which is not bad, actually)

This whole things sounds too good to be true xD I'll have to borrow a DS...or buy it, who knows O: Is it worth it? (I mean, for me it's really easy to borrow it, all of my friends have it xD)
With great power comes great responsibility

Dekar: "My love is thy sword."

Guy: No wonder you weren't married in Ruins of Lore.

But I'm pretty sure Dekar was proposing to Marin in the ending!
