Book of the Past:
I originally got into gaming when my brother broke his collarbone from a stupid skateboarding stunt my father allowed him to do ("Hey, son, won't it be cool if you hold onto the back of my car as I drive around town!?"). As a get well soon gift, my parents bought him a NES, from which his gaming days began. Me, I just enjoyed watching him play, mostly RPGs until I tried them myself eventually. My first game was Dragon Quest and I remember quitting shortly after the first dragon killed me. lol
Since then, though, I have enjoyed games for multiple reasons, mostly because I love stories and characters...and games are the perfect way for me to experience the hard work and strife that the characters have to go through. It's fun and I feel like I can play a part in their story. It's a much better story than mine.
My favorite RPGs of the past are (in no certain order):
Shadow Hearts 1 & 2
Starting March 6th, separate story DLCs will be released weekly for all six of the sisters. Firstly, One and Two’s DLC content will be available at the same time with the others following thereafter weekly. Each story will focus more deeply on each of the sisters and their relationship with their respective Apostle.
Here’s the line up:
One & Two’s DLCs: March 6th
Three’s DLC: March 13
Four’s DLC: March 20
Five’s DLC: March 27
Zero’s DLC: April 3rd
Each DLC is 600 yen. From April, however, all sales taxes will be razed, so the price will then be 617 yen. These extra story DLCs are only accessible after you have completed Branch A and have downloaded and installed the newest patch of the game.
One Vs. One (Brother)
Looks like there will be a scene in which the two twins fight within the Capital Tower. Hmm…
Gabriella Fights along side the Twins
There’s a scene in which Gabriella will aid the twins in battle.
Memories of the Past
As you play and level up the sisters, it will unlock further “memories” of their past by which to further develop their character.
Each sister will of course have the ability to use their Utautai Mode in battle.
One and Gabriella
There will be a scene or two in One’s story in which you can ride on the back of her dragon companion, Gabriella. At least in this point in time, she resembles a normal dragon rather than her chaotic form which Zero had to battle. She also seems to have one heck of an attitude! “Shut up, porky. I’m tired of you.”
Zero and Michael
Zero’s story will involve her past along with Michael as her dragon companion.
Gimme da Gold!!
It will be much easier to obtain a ton more gold in the new stages compared to the regular run through the game. Be on the look out for those Gold soldiers that drop money when you attack them!!
Weapons of the Utautai
Each of the sisters will come with their own unique weapons that can be levelled up to unlock its Weapon Story.
Zero & Mikhail will appear in the new version of the arcade card battle game “Lord of Vermilion III Ark-cell” from March 27th (tentative). Zero’s card illustration is by DOD3 character designer Fujisaka Kimihiko and Mikhail is illustrated by Takagi Masafumi.
