Upcoming RPG made by Wright Flyer Systems and Key.https://youtube.com/watch?v=QkhJBs7AymIhttps://heaven-burns-red.com/
I will play
Well that did a good job of convincing me. Looks great.
Sorta interested. Looks like a mix of Another Eden and Blue Reflection.Hopefully it takes the best parts out of both.
>>584569WFS just can’t seem to let go of their obsession with cats.
>>584569>autobattler story gameI CAN'T READ
>>585490Last game from the dev was released globally.
Is the tiger male or female?
>>584569Some decent timing since the remnants of the Toji no Miko playerbase are looking for something new to play now that Tojitomo is dead.
>>585490It actually looks like it plays exactly like Another Eden.
>>591116Tojitomo is deadDamn, really? Maybe I won't be getting S2, after all.
>>591116Good the artist was too good for that game.
More news at TGS it seems>>595142He's overrated as fuck and has a sameface problem
1 hour left until the TGS panel. They must have paid extra to get the timeslot right next to Genshin Impact's panel.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxmNTfkdPsg
>>603153Haha we Genshin killer!
That's a lot of girls.
English version is planned as >>585496 surmised. Seems like it's got some budget behind it.
>>584569I see a cute loli in a cute hate and thigh highs, I buy. Simple as. >>584754Cats are cute though.
>>603504Were you expecting it to not be gacha?
>>584569This look really cool, I like the non battle elements, the battle thoughs... kinda bland map, I hope it's just the first ones and later the background maps get better.
>>584569I may give it a chance. At least isn't your usual harem shit protagonist.
>>584569looks like a psp game, but will try it out for the sake of KEY.
>>603600some of us have standards, yes
>>609977If you did you wouldn't be on /vmg/.
>>584569Is Another Eden ending? God I love the game but I couldn't stand the grind and outdated gameplay
>>609985Not really, the game does fine. It's not really alive but it's not really dead.>GrindUnderstandable since Treatise grind is both good and bullshit.>Outdated gameplayBruh, it's on a phone. Don't tell me you're one of those retards who thinks every mobile game should be Genshin, Epic Seven or Dragonball Legends.
>>610007great. I hope it's available offline once the main story is finished.>Don't tell me you're one of those retards who thinks every mobile game should be Genshin, Epic Seven or Dragonball Legends.nigga I'm just tired of playing classic turn based JRPGs sometimes. AE's battle system offers nothing special and the alot of the boss fights are long drawn out slogs that are hardly fun. Plus I'm still working on clearing my SMT backlog.
There's gonna be another info stream in a couple days. Still waiting on a release date although they said it'll be in 2021.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc_boPKqqXk
>>610016>nigga I'm just tired-Welcome to the club. You still cool unlike most of the "muh gameplay" faggots because you don't unironically have gacha as your only hobby.Really gets your mind going when people justify the worst gameplay loops like how people justified the cancer Epic gear grind in DFO just because "DFO had more awesome gameplay then your shit MMO ever will".Fuck, it's literally the same cycle all over again.
>>609982But there ARE good mobile games buried beneath all of the garbage. Stop supporting gacha games and perhaps we could get more of them.
>>610016I might be mistaken, but weren't they planning a switch port? I assume it'd be an offline version if they do it.
>>610007Why is Epic Seven a high bar to hit? It's just a turn based JRPG.
>>610142I don't know, go ask their general or subreddit. People applaud it as the peak of turn-based gameplay alongside Brave Exvius and Seven Deadly Sins.
>>610132That's not gonna happen with how profitable gacha is and how gullible the average gacha consumer is. Gacha may be cancer, but it's a cancer hole that we're past the point of no return.
>>610132As this anon says ( >>610538 ), even if you get rid of all Gacha's... There's gonna be a shitton of trash freeware everywhere. Anyone who has done actual programming on a mobile OS would tell you one of the worst parts is the fact Google and Apple does jack shit to even try to foster a good mobile gaming development culture. It's a hundred times worse trying to program a good mobile game compared to programming a good indie game on PC.So even if you get rid of Gacha's, barely any developer would still step forward in wanting to make mobile gaming possible.
>>603179>not even a simple meganekko in sightdropped before it even gets out.
>>584569>MC is blonde and has short hairUhh can't she have like brown hair, how do you expect my to self-insert like this.
>>611399Dye your hair, sister
>>592950All of WFS's games are in pretty similar molds with slight deviations. I wish their SAO game would quit fucking breaking every other update though.
>>584569https://youtu.be/f14dzcVzaccMC looks like a dorky badass. I like her personality.
>only girlsgay as fuckhard pass
>>611640>gay as fuckIndeed.
>>611640Stick to chink games, coomtard
>>610023There's gonna be a CBT in November, you can apply for it here. Guessing that means a December release if they stick to 2021 like they said.https://heaven-burns-red.com/cbt/
>>612881Does CBT wipe?
>>612884>All user data, acquired in-game currency, items, etc. during the closed beta test period will be deleted after the test ends.
>>611660This is quite literally a coombrain game though
>>612995(And that's a good thing)
The next set of characters. Can't quite say I understand what aesthetic this game is going for, but I will say this is the first time I've seen an anime girl named "Ivar".https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-mSUQVmtGQ
>>613404Too bad it will only come to global when no one care about it anymore, nips are dumb.
>>613404This seems to be a "war against monsters" game where they sprinkle some idolshit in-between by giving each faction songs. Since this is written by Maeda, we're bound to get a lot of these girls dying or suffer some fate worst than death.
>>603179There's like one girl with fan service aaahhhhh
>>603179I hope the tiger gets some silly alt costumes
>>614203Wait for alts/skins
>>614203Square Enix published their last game (Another Eden). Maybe their ethics department gave some pointers for a smooth global release later.
>>612995You have no idea what you're talking about.
>>614476I hope the tiger becomes a furry.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeMIw9pu4zA New info video coming on the 28th (Thursday)
>>622710Also when the registration period for the beta ends, so one more day
I can already tell who the best team will be.
>>584569>A gacha game with waifus and a female mc only Holy! this is a first time in gacha games history who are these based af devs?
>>625700Wright Flyer Studios, but that aside there are quite a few gacha out there with female MCs. This game isn't the first nor is it the last to do that.
>>625700>first timeIt's not.
>>622710I liked what they showed today, it's seems like they are well prepared and have a good plan for the game, I hope it's pay off.
>>625780Same here. It looks like they have a plan on what they wanted to do and where they want to take the game.
>>625694The skin explosure level is high here
>>584569this would be perfect to have on PC on top of mobile... why do I feel like we're going to wait another 10 years before Japs make that a standard though
>>584754what else have they made?
>>630355probably because in order for the to work you kind of have to make PC the primary platform and put the mobile version on backburner, and that would piss of most of the Japanese market who are overwhelmingly mobile players
beta from november 4 to november 11invites got sent randomly to whoever applied
>>632320I wonder when this will come out. Probably December.
Can't download the beta on Android for whatever reason, despite using a JP account. A few others are getting the same issue but I don't see a solution.
>no malesgayshant be playing
Anyone here got into the beta? How well does the game run?
>>634544it runs very well on my old device.>>634330have you tried genshin/epic 7 they have plenty of em there.
>>634566>it runs very well on my old device.Good to hear but what phone specifically? Wondering if my budget Poco x3 would be enough for this.
>>633232Same here on Android, both Bluestacks and real phone. I didn't even get a code or anything in the email, just a link to a play store site that doesn't exist. Even tried a vpn in case the site only exists on a specific Japanese server but same error. It just says "Try again". A solution might be to get someone who has downloaded it to share the apk somehow. The association with an email address should happen only after installation.
>all of the game content is locked behind 24 hr time wallslmao not even gonna bother with the actual release
>>634957Elaborate? I saw a stream of some guy playing it for 8 hours straight.
>>634957Hopefully this will filter out the gachabrains around here that don't realize it's a story game.
>>634974Does it have English option?
>>634960The game story goes in days and this retard thought it's literal days.
>>634957Pretending to be retarded still makes you a retard.
>>633232If you haven't fixed it yourself yet, here's what got it working for me: https://www.reddit.com/r/gachagaming/comments/ql1mk8/heaven_burns_red_beta_emails_have_been_sent_out/hj1aujz/Just using a JP account isn't enough. You can't have any payment method registered in another country. Basically, I needed to create a payment profile with a Japanese address and delete my current one. I didn't even need a new payment method. I did it all over a VPN just to be safe.
>>635273Thanks, that worked.
This MC and the whole group is pretty fun, and I'm not even through the first day. I have some trouble understanding the Kansai girl though.
It looks pretty neat from what I’ve seen of the trailers, but I imagine the battles get tedious after a while of seeing the attack animations over and over again.
>>630356Another Eden, a game that features cats in practically every facet of the game.
>>635413Yuki (the big tittied megane straightlaced tsukkomi girl) is the most rapeable of the group.
>>635581Before playing I thought Yuki would be my favorite, but the dumb intelligence officer has very quickly grown on me. I'm also enjoying the amount of dialog choices you get, and they seem to contribute to some sort of stat depending on what you choose. Haven't found out what influence that has.
I hope they port it to global in due time. I hate it when games have to catch up.
Is it F2P friendly? Or do you have to pay if you want gacha characters like AE?
>>635952This is only the beta, so things may change in the real game. Daily missions and story progression give you quartz that's used as gacha currency. I'm sure they'll also have special tickets and such. Paid quartz and free quartz are kept as separate currency, too. One roll costs 300, a 10-roll 3000 with some guarantee of rarity. Daily missions get you 110 each day, completing days in the story 50 each, and then there are tabs for limited-time (probably event) missions, battle missions, character missions and "other". The only unit rarities I've seen are A, S and SS, but who knows if there'll be more. It looks promising for f2p though.It also looks like there are generic materials you can use to level up units and you won't have to use them in battle to only farm XP until they're strong enough. We'll see how abundant those materials will be though.
>>635957does it have pvp?
Oh my god the combat is so boring and the music doesn't help at all fuck me I thought I would be able to get into this
The game needs a dressing room and outfit options. The team dynamic is really fun and probably the main draw right now. The combat is okay, I think. It takes some getting used to. I don't have a good grasp of team strength vs enemy strength yet and I think they could explain attributes better. It took me a few tries to understand that in the icons introduced as an enemy's resistances the one having up-arrows is the one it's weak against, and that the attribute mentioned in the arena mission name is the one you should bring in your team.
>>636866>The game needs a dressing room and outfit options. Agreed, that was one of my favorite features of Tojitomo. The ability to pose them would be nice too.
Does every girl have an SS-rank version or only a few?
>>584754cats are fine too.
>>637003I think the beta has only a limited selection. If it actually downloads all unit images and doesn't wait until you draw them, then only 14 of the 42 have an SS image. I've only drawn 2 SS units. R1, R2 and R3 seem to be the rarities in the file names.
It's curious that their story replay feature has an Event tab. I wonder if that'll work for players who join later and events they completely missed.
I thought the beta was only distributed to 3,000 players. Are there really that many lucky people on here?
Finally, some skin...
>>637530Even if you combine the number of players from /vmg/ and /u/ I don't think we exceed 10 total.
>that difficulty spike on day 2-8These fights went from "Oh, do they not want me to auto this?" to "Am I actually meant to lose here?" I got a Bad Ending.
>>640205The bad endings are a nice touch. They really want to sell the visual novel side of things.Beta ends in like 6.5 hours for anyone who wants to squeeze a bit more time out of it. Then there's a stream a few hours after that.
how's the difficulty of the gameplay? will it just end up as another autobattler?
>>641863i'm a retard for not reading the thread
>>641831I just started spending quartz to level up stats like charisma and such and do character quests since nothing carries over anyway. The one where you go around pranking your team mates with the ninja girl Chiroru had me lose my shit like 3 times. Ruka is such a great MC for having the idea, too.>>641863There's some strategy involved. Characters can have up to 3 skills available plus a standard attack when you don't have them use a skill that turn. 3 of 6 units can do something per turn. Those attackers are also the only 3 who can be attacked in a turn. Once one loses her shield, you gotta be careful about putting her in harm's way. I got a bad ending by letting one girl hit 0HP even in a simulated but story-related battle. I think hitting 0HP in a free arena match shouldn't be an issue.If you only follow the story and don't farm XP, I think it does a pretty good job of keeping you on your toes, at least until day 2-8. In the beta arena battles to farm XP don't even cost anything, so it's super easy to level up units with a macro on Bluestacks.
>>640205Got a file of the character sprites? They look fantastic for this game.
>>645209That's a big upload for my connection. Here's a collection of dialog assets and some unsorted images. There are about 500MB more of story and unit illustrations from the beta that I might upload overnight if I remember.https://mega.nz/folder/FEJmyT7S#JuWVjfu62qrPPpmby46x8g
>>645483Thanks bro. I'm really looking forward to this game. It feels like there's a lot of effort being put into it beyond just being a coomer gacha game.
There was a beta? Fuck.
>>646659You want the fresh experience anyway
>>645483Updated the link with more assets. Also, in case anyone here is looking to play this game with an emulator, I needed to install a 64-bit instance of Bluestacks. It told me 32 bit Android was incompatible.
>>645483Based. Thanks anonPlease tell me you plan on uploading the BGM too
>>647603All the audio is in a format that I don't know what to do with. One program I found that's supposed to be able to convert it to wav or other says it can't open the files either.
>>647685Any chance you could upload one of the audio files? I'd take a crack at it but I might just have as much luck as you. I thought criware's stuff were known to be decodable but I might just be living in the past.
>>650803https://mega.nz/folder/QVwXxQ5L#imZxye-j-iZ_oWfcu3GW8gA small collection of what it calls sound files. If you do find a way to extract something from them, please share it because there's about 1GB of these. I found something called AWB tools that produces a bunch of .bin files from some of them if I change a 0x02 into an 0x01 at the beginning of the files, but that's as far as I got.
>>650803>>650888Rooting for you guys! The music is phenomenal in this game.
>>650888>8B43280FD6298F211CA8DD9C1D969B39Just addded .awb to this and foobar + latest vgmstream plays it fine. Here it is converted to opus as an example:anonfiles()com/N9McK3Vbu8/8B43280FD6298F211CA8DD9C1D969B39_oga>C8D58436A590D1CAA5C68CF5BBB196FB>DF611CEA586201FA3B60653C085CE732Voice clips/dialogue. Also playable by just adding the .awb extension.>48FCB55D36C701477A99614811896859A small collection of SFX. I couldn't just add .awb to this one, had to erase the header (everything before AFS2) first then it worked.Alternatively, VGMToolbox seems to work too. Its CRI ACB/AWB Archive Extractor will result in .bin files but when renamed as .hca it'll be playable with vgmstream. Using the CRI HCA Extractor instead might be better since it produces .hca files.The only oddity I found is with the SFX file. The adding .awb extension method gives me 22 files with a runtime of 0:45 while VGMToolbox gives me 14 files with runtime 0:42. I think there's some variance in how some of the files playback as well.>A35AEE7A9B73EF3897F673DE91D96DDCSeems to be an audio + video file, probably what plays at the beginning of the prologue. VGMToolbox successfully extracts it as a CRI movie file (Misc Tools > Stream Tools > Video Demultiplexer, format set to USM), but all I get is a white screen and scrambled audio.Video files aside, we should be able to get the audio tracks working.
More game details when. Onegai.
>>651768The next stream is on the 25th so that's your best hope for news.
>>651730Alright, I uploaded >300MB of mp3 files. The filenames are as I found them and I didn't even listen to the thousands of clips that were shorter than 10s. Most of the short ones were dialog and sfx, so I only kept the music.If these tracks are named anywhere, then I don't know where. I've never gone this deep into extracting game assets. Same for the usm video decryption. I have no idea where I'd even look for a key.
>>652241Appreciate your work bro.
>>645483>>652241Thanks a bunch. Really love 31F's song, gonna listen to that on loop until the game comes out.
>>652241Lotta great tunes thanks.
>>652241Based as fuck. Thank you for your hard work.
After today's character tweet, there will be 39 characters left. They really could be going for it
>>656289my guess December 2 or December 9
>>656777Nice digits. I just hope they get it out soon so they don't lose any momentum.
>>635957I dont care about how much currency f2p gets compared to if the game has a good pity system or not. In the 4 years I've played Another Eden, logging in daily, I've only managed to get 2 on banner 5 stars that I was aiming for without paying. That shits unreasonable, and Im not going to put up with it again.
>>658008How much content is doable for casual/f2p in AE?
This week's stream.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ye0ZnleGfw
Release is in February, they decided to delay after CBT for more polish.
>>658027>casualAll of main story and sidestories >f2pAll of it, you can beat all content with free characters
>>661532Based, this game will probably be like that.
>>661502Oh, nice. I didn't get to see those missions in the beta. I wonder what they still need to polish though. I didn't run into any bugs and it only crashed twice, each after running for 24h+ straight. Maybe difficulty scaling or mission rewards.
>>661524I wonder if the whole main story is written for by Maeda. If they're putting it off for this long, then I assume they've got all characters and their side stories completed by now.
Nobody posted the delay news...
>>661502probably my least favorite group. Literally a bunch of walking stereotypes
Looks like they were making some good changes so that's why it's being delayed. Mixed feelings on making it less difficult, but I didn't get to play the beta myself so hard to say.
>>661868To be fair about its difficulty, the beta was giving you a lot of gems to use in the gacha for plenty of 10-rolls. In that week I think I did 3 or 4 and had 2 SS units, though both with the same attribute that didn't end up helping much in some fights. The attribute resistances and weaknesses were really severe, which I think they'll address, too. Leveling up by auto battling in the arena costs no stamina though, because the only sort of stamina the game has is used on special dungeons and character side missions that you didn't pick the first time around when they were available.I tried to not use auto battle during story fights, so maybe most fights felt more challenging to me than they actually needed to be. I think most players who said the battles should be easier seem to forget that the usual progression of gacha games means that within a few months you'll only care about units of the highest rarity anyway, so I believe A and S units will really only see use in the beginning and when you need to level them up enough to get a skill that you then can use on the SS unit of that character.
So the last stream said that this won't be the type of game where they'll be constantly adding in new characters.Though from the mines, we know there's at least one troop in the works. We know nothing about them and they haven't been shown anywhere. I guess there's also the possibility that they're scrapped but it's way too early to know.
>>662654What's the monetization then
>>662654They may also just be an NPC group, or they belong to another division so there'd be no in-game excuse as to why you would be able to call them to fight with you.
>>662680alts like every other game that focuses on a core cast instead of a constant influx of new characters
>>662654Looks like an antagonist gang
>>662654for me its the chainsaw
>>662680Not every game focuses on new characters
>>662680This is one of the games where alts will work amazingly well with how much focus is put into the characters. The main 6 is almost anime protagonist level in the amount of focus they get, you can't really just drop them once and forget.
>>662680And they say there's no such thing as stupid questions
>>663885>>663493>>662692>>664480Fuck off you samefag schizo. The game obviously has many unlike those that actually rely on a dozen of characters. So it is strange that they are not adding more.
>>664957They don't need to add more frequently if they don't plan to give out free currency frequently. If you want anything more than your launch team you gotta pay up. That's the monetization: Another Eden 2.0
>>664957You're just haven't seen the work, it seems, they all are integrated into the plot, appear in the chapters, appear in the other girls stories, appear and interact in the background from the start of the game and all this kind of shit. You can do "the new team appears" thing like once, maybe twice, but you can't just constantly drop them randomly in this setting like the games that don't care about the plot state. And we already know that every character at least have 3 rarity versions, getting more versions is a natural development.
>>665056I don't know what kind of shitty gacha you usually play where new characters don't appear in each other's stories...
>>665083Yeah, and the already existing characters will do that here.
>>610132The only good ones are rhythm games. And even then that doesn't really count since even the gacha games can be good, like Project Sekai for instance.
>>664957It's okay to admit you haven't played gacha before, anon. We won't laugh at you.
