Time to talk about the Tekkaman Blade series.
Ah, Dissidia. The first game that ever taught me what “hype” was and the first game I was forced to do serious search and research upon and the japanese language in general to understand what was going on. While some games I had bought before that were in japanese and were japanese-heavy in text, they already had guides in english and explained the hiragana / furigana / kanji the games had so it wasn’t much of a problem for me. This one was new for the time and I would buy it the same time as everyone else and I certainly couldn’t wait for who knows how many months before it had a guide, I couldn’t wait anymore…I had been waiting for 10 years already and the trailer that made my dreams come true was hitting me hard on the head with its awesomeness.
Needless to say that when Cloud and Squall were announced, I was ecstatic, but a bit dissapointed that Tifa wasn’t in the game and neither was Auron or Lulu, but my two favourite leads and Ocarina of Time Link’s “rival” would finally be playable in an action game and it was enough for me. And in December of 2008, I finally had it my hands and have clocked in over 600 hours in just the first game.
5 years later, I still crave for more Dissidia but not necessarily the Final Fantasy one anymore. Maybe this one isn’t so random as other ramblings, just maybe but for this post I’m going to write about the manga, anime, visual novels, tokusatsu and even other video game series that can benefit from the gameplay system of Dissidia should they ever be or are in need for a good fighting game.
The Dragon Slayer series are going to receive a theoretical genre change. Let’s see how they fare as a Fighting game series and mixed genre series that combines Action-RPG elements and Platforming elements.
So, here it is, my dream game. The game is basically a mix of Fighting games and Stylish Action / Hack’n’Slash games, think of it as Gundam Vs Gundam / Ys Vs Sora no Kiseki combined with Devil May Cry / Ninja Gaiden and have heavy tokusatsu and henshin heroes references and elements. You can find everything about the game here :

Oh, god I know I’m gonna get killed now. But before that, please hear me out. This is not a post about Visual Novels or VNs being ported to consoles, portable or not, it’s about very certain VNs that can be ported or didn’t get ported and the fans are left wondering why.
