Thread Trails of Cold Steel IV releasing this fall on PS4 (Switch, PC in 2021)
Not ready quite yet to talk staffing, maybe a little later down the line. We know that the Trails of Cold Steel III announcement probably felt like a bit of a bait and Switch (ha), and resolved ourselves this time to make sure that we did the right thing and confirmed all platform out of the gate. Again, because of a few different limitations we are unable to offer a single release date for all SKUs but I would note that the time between all releases is planned to be a smaller window than Trails of Cold Steel III. That's all I'm going to say for now, though, there is a lot of time left before launch and many exciting announcements that I am eager to share in due time. :D EDIT: To all the people out there calling this a terrible day to announce, do ya'll companies coming out and making concepts of lame or cool products that will never exist, or a company to come out and just announce something good on this day that will exist? So weird.

Thread Prinny 1•2: Exploded and Reloaded Announced for the Nintendo Switch
This is one of those weird situations where two different parts of my past have smashed together. I worked on several Backbone titles under Konami such as the X-Men Arcade game and Simpsons game. This is not anything like that. The screens we have were more "proof of concept". We'll have more screenshots coming as we reveal more of the game and you can let me know then if you still feel that way but at present this is not by any means the final look.

Sorry for the lack of ultra megaton (I thought the Ys VIII coop announcement was insane myself), but it is still super early in the year and we are just getting started with announcements and new titles. If we did too much too early it wouldn't give breathing room to our many, many other titles. Plus, in the end I really just wanted to give a talk about publisher-side porting. :D

Thank you! Of course, hold our feet to the fire when we mess up, but I have to say internally we are pretty much unidentifiable to our team and process from 3 years ago and hopefully still improving. A big part of doing this panel was hopefully highlighting how we've improved and where we would like to go here. It sets a very high mark for our future ports but I'd rather chase ambition than accept comfort.

The focus of the panel is about the process of porting to consoles and PC. We're going to have a lot of announcements at the panel. This isn't a "leak", we literally sent out a press blast to tell people about this panel. Unless we somehow galaxy brain-ing our own panel that we paid for and wrote the description to.

Hey cool, blame me for that then. Due to the limited time we have with Kondo-san this week, I had to sort of pack the schedule and didn't account for LA traffic being twice as garbage as usual. We've added quite a bit since then, everyone being gracious enough to go back through and answer quite a few more in the meantime. There's a lot of really in-depth responses in there, too, and obviously translation takes a substantial amount of more time than directly replying to an AMA w/o it. Technically, Kondo-san and staff spent at least twice as much time answering fan questions than any single interview this week. Final total is 26 responses.

Thread The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince |OT| The boy and the beast girl
So, we tried something kind of new and novel for this release. We're big into physical presence and wanted to make sure this game got on store shelves, which we really only felt was possible through the "standard" LE SKU @ 40$. There is no retail SKU that is just the $20 game, that is only the price for digital. We've done a really limited number of prints of the physical. We're testing the waters in terms of what is possible in a changing market. Working on the storybook was a lot of fun for the design/editing team, we had to create that from scratch basically. Fun Fact: This was one of our annual "Inside Indies" projects from NIS. Basically every year, everyone at the Gifu office is allowed to pitch a game idea and everyone there votes on it. Winner gets to be the director of the project. Previous titles under this process include the first Yomawari and A Rose in the Twilight. EDIT: Funner Fact and pluggable (forgive me): We have about 20~ or so stuffed wolves remaining in stock if you want to get an for the title. NIS liked them so much they bought a bunch from us and immediately sold out.

I see this a lot, but Falcom puts in a lot of work knowing that this may be someone's fist Trails. While ideally some background in the series helps, the games typically include all the information in some capacity to catch someone up on the general story. I started with ToCSII on PC and was able to catch up pretty quick. Obviously going back and later playing ToCSI later filled in gaps and made me appreciate some story beats more, but it wasn't like it was impossible to follow.

Thread ADD/ADHDera, let's share coping mechanisms
Diagnosed at 19 with ADHD (but clearly had it since an early age, parents were weird about medicating). Was medicated for a few years but haven't been on Concerta for years now. Thought many times of going back on it but it is rather pricey. Lists have been tremendously helpful as OP points out. Music is definitely really good at sort of keeping that distracted part of my brain focused (EDM, stuff with as little lyrics as possible). Since it's been so long since I last was on medication there are a few questions I guess I'd like to have fielded by people more recently medicated. -Are there any better low-intensity medicines that have developed in the last decade that people would recommend? -One of my larger fears about Concerta was long-term effects relating to general focus & anxiety. Anybody seen anything about long-term medication use and its effects? -Is there any medication that you can get without therapy or visits to a psychiatrist? Was one of the more annoying restrictions on previous medication requests. For my case, hyper-activeness, lack of focus-- fish oil has been completely useless. I think it's probably better for people with memory issues?

Hm... It's not just me reading these threads, I know a good amount of our office does, as I imagine more places in the industry do as well, I just decide not to lurk. Working in any creative practice I think you gotta be at peace with the idea you open yourself to criticism with a public work.

Equally so, I've tried to be as open as I can while juggling corporate responsibility and professional decorum. We need to hear from players so that we know what we are doing right as much as what we are doing wrong, so I know there's been some tough criticism, but that is instrumental in improving and moving forward (except for the 'pls die'-type posts). By the by, my policy is never open up until 10-20 years after or death of the company.

Thread The Switch version of Crash Bandicoot Trilogy is the fastest selling Switch game in the UK this year
Man, Europe loves the Crash. I did testing on Crash of the Titans and it was the only product I've ever worked on that in addition to doing EFIGS did Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, and Swedish (and I think Icelandic and maybe a few others?). I have never heard of something going so deep in on Northern Europe localization. But according to my project leads and producers at the time it was like "Well, it does staggeringly well in Europe."

Thread Ys Community Thread |OT| Shipwrecker by Day, Survivor by Night, Always an Adventurer!
Thanks for posting this! In his initial call for the article, Alan mentioned that "on my initial look of the title" is where the original analysis of the script was formed, but as we've been working on it we decided that the entirety of the script was to be reviewed. I just want to reassure that we are taking this incredibly seriously. In the spirit of open discussion with our fan base we have about where we are in the process and samples of the work we are doing. I know how much this means to everyone involved and that there are, rightfully, disappointments from our fans in the initial reaction, but we really are trying to be as honest and transparent with everyone, while still keeping our obligations to our partners like Falcom in what we can and can't divulge. We are reading and watching as much feedback as we can in our day to day, and appreciate that people are still showing interest. Thank you, -Travis Shrodes Marketing Supervisor, NISA

Thread Aggretsuko is lowkey the new hotness on Netflix
It is sooooo amazing. They stuff so many gags in 15 minutes. A lot of the advertising focuses on her crappy coworkers and boss, but there is so much in the way her friends interact not only with her but each other, and they are all priceless!

Thanks. We're just trying to make sure people can enjoy this incredible game on their platform of choice without major incident. Also, I was the head of social media at Konami during the Kojima stuff. My skin is titanium at this point.
