On a related tangent, it seems that Lloyd Irving, the ever-iconic main character of Tales of Symphonia, has been confirmed for Smash Bros., but…
Personally, I’m not too happy that he’s an alternate costume for the Sword Mii character and not a full character, but it gives us a little hope that some other Tales characters might make it to Smash. What are your thoughts on this reveal?
EDIT - 9/16: Just a tad late, but we have some new info on Zestiria’s PC (and PS4) release! Both will run at 1920 x 1080 resolution, but the Steam release will support up to 4K resolution. Draw distance is also twice as long as the PS3 version, and the PC version has a special option to make it even farther! Other graphical details are upgraded as well, and the PC version is very customizable in this regard. :3
Unfortunately, all versions of the game will be locked at 30 frames per second. The reasoning behind this, according to the official blog itself, is that “changing the framerate proved to have profound consequences on things like: animation, balance, difficulty, and overall fighting mechanics tuning.”
In all honesty, a prettier game does not always mean a better game. I personally don’t care so much about the graphics as I do about the bugginess of the initial release. I just want the game to be functional and able to run on my dinky little laptop, but maybe you guys have different opinions. What do you think of these new graphical specs? Are you guys excited for Zestiria coming out next month? Let me know!
