Eisenalex : (13 September 2017 - 08:54 AM) Same for me. At least KT once stated that they have a little something in the works for the Switch and I doubt it'll only be FE: Warriors.
Eisenalex : (13 September 2017 - 10:57 PM) Now that was kinda disappointing. Didn't expect Doom and Wolfenstein. As expected, no FF news, unfortunately. I'm surprised that we didn't get a Smash 4 port announced or any news on Travis Strikes Back.

This is all going to be super rushed! So I'll keep updating constantly! But what we do know:

 

Miu is Miku's daughter and Miku is in the game! She went missing when Miu was 3. Still voiced by Rika Wakusawa. There are rumours that she is currently at the mountain, but why?

 

Onion's name is Shiragiku (白菊), voiced by Natsumi Takamori. She is notable for her white hair, and seems to be able to read people's minds. She shows up at the shrine, whispering mysterious words to visitors. She has a faceless doll called a hitogatami (人形見), but what does it mean...?

 

Haruka Momose who we met on the website. She's Fuyuhi's friend and is easily swayed by others' opinions. She seems to have a secret between her and Fuyuhi, which may have something to do with her spiriting away.

 

Watch this space!

 

 

http://s1299.photobu...d5231e.png.html

http://s1299.photobu...c22f9d.png.html

 

Locations:

 

Mt. Hikami Cable Car, a cable car built to stir up tourism at the mountain again. There was a big landslide soon after completion and it was abandoned. Rumoured to be a famous ghost spot where ghosts are spotted in the car, etc.

 

Watarai Mansion, a house where a folklorist called Keiji Watarai lived when he investigated the mountain. He went missing while investigating the religion and the house suddenly vanished from the mountain. It's rumoured to have been spotted amidst the fog.

 

Katashiro Shrine, a shrine in the centre of Shirazu Forest with a lot of dolls. It's been empty for ages, and no one knows why the dolls are there. Kids' ghosts play there, the dolls talk, and a girl with white hair and a doll stares at you, so the rumours go.

 

Tunnel/caves, which stretch beneath the island. The mountain was seen as the human body and the cave thing seen as the inside, where water (and gods) dwell, so it was called the... womb cave? Sounds familiar...

 

Hikami Tunnel, a tunnel that was built with the intention of ferrying tourists to the top of the mountain. Water from the caves flooded the tunnels during construction and many workers died. construction began again later, but the entire mountain was abandoned, so it was closed down.

 

Bathroom, where Yuuri meets a ghost!!!!

 

 

In terms of gameplay:

 

Wetness - comes from rain, taking attacks, being in water obviously etc., which fills the wetness meter. Wetter you are the stronger your spirit power is, other powerups to the camera. OTOH, your defence lowers and you encounter more ghosts, so it's risky. Wetness clears up over time, but if you want to fix it right away you can use the "purifying flame" lantern.

If you take an attack from a ghost in "yomi nure" status, you too will enter it, which lowers your defence and gradually your HP too, as well as messing up your vision. This too can be cured with the purifying flame, or you can defeat all ghosts, leave the area, etc. Up to you.

 

Also, if you touch a ghost as they're "dying", you can view a past scene of how they died. You can also touch them during special attacks. If you're successful, you can beat the ghost regardless of their HP. Most ghosts are unique with their own past, and you can form a sort of "collection" of these death videos.

tbh I wasn't a fan of the idea, but it's still very cool to have a definite answer! Now I wonder how it's going to play out...

 

I am so surprised they revealed this before the game came out, though. I was expecting them to keep us in suspense.

 

Shiragiku is an awesome name. <3

I AM IMPRESSED.

 

oh, could we also expect to see Rei too?

 

and... if you notice this...

 

Shiragiku's bg box is red while the other characters are in blue. why is that?

she wears a black kimono. her hair is white.

opposite to the black-haired maiden, black hair and white kimono.

she's small and young...? but the maiden is tall and ... old? @_@

 

yin yang? XD

 

p.s. she's with a boy. must be one of those romantic moments that we may see... >A<

(reminds me of Ai's backstory in Jigoku Shoujo~ o.o)

 

AH! we are seeing something. LOL XDD

I still mostly just want to yell "OMG MIKU" very loudly, but I'll try to pull myself together.

 

I am so thrilled about all these different locations. So much exploring to do! And there seems to be such a variety, as well. I'm especially excited about Watarai Mansion - an entire folklorist's mansion just for us. :wub:  And cable cars are always wonderful no matter what they're in. Eeeee. This sounds like an absolute blast, I can't wait to play it.

 

I love Shiragiku, too. She looks a lot younger than I was expecting. Considering the website footage that shows her participating in the black box ritual, I wonder if this whole "raven-haired" theme is actually a kind of ironic misdirection, and she with her white hair turns out to be the big bad - perhaps the black stuff inside the box transforms her somehow, and the white-haired version is a flashback, like little Kirie.

ohh, now I'm beginning to wonder too... so like you meant that maybe the raven-haired maiden is the grown-up Shiragiku? (got used to saying black ... I'm bad at color shades though)

but in one of the trailer scenes, we see that Yuuri encounters her, who is showing off her doll. Hmm... then maybe that's just something else?

lol an interesting idea... we'll have to wait for the game >w<

I second the excitement over locations, this sounds amazing.  I thought having the woods, shop and hot spring was a lot as it is, but this is going to be so much fun to explore.  The "yomi nure" attack sounds really interesting and I like you have multiple ways to deal with it so it's not completely forced on you like the Miasma.  I need to play thisss.

 

and oh btw MIKU

I always knew she was Miku's daughter c:

I can't wait to see her older ^^

And I think Shiragiku is gonna be my favorite character (or ghost?) in FF5 =) I love her kimono ♥

 

Also, that idea of ghosts' death scenes ''collection'' is amazing =DDD

Oh ! I am super hyped~! 

Love how Onion-san Shiragiku looks much younger than I expected ^^ And can't wait to hear more about these characters background. And all of the locations! I thought there was so much to explore before and now there is even more.

 

And I love how Miku really is Miu's mother. And she looks more mature and I'm so glad she is in the game! The supernatural things has followed through her life, so maybe now she really gets her ending she deserves. 

 

I wan't to play this game so bad !~ :'3

squeeeeeee, so happy!

 

But, given that Miu is Miku's daughter, we have a fairly firm game date of late 90's-early 2000s [assuming she had her daughter shortly after FF3], so I would imagine technology would pop up int he game. Its interesting they did such a big time leap fromt he first 4 [all in the 80's] to something a bit more modern.

 

 

I also really like the 'wet' feature. Name is a little silly, but still a cool feature. It should make game play a little more challenging given you have the choice of weaker attacks but stronger defense or stronger attacks with weaker defense. Getting to see how the ghosts die via flash-back if touched is amazing. There were so many faceless ghosts in the previous game that we could only speculate on how they died, or learned about their death via note.

 

Lots of a new little features that I'm looking forward to.

 

As for miss onion, I like the idea that she went in 'pure' with her white hair and maybe was kept in the box for years?? turning her hair black and 'corrupt'.

A possible theory, but I wonder...

How about the height? O: Shiragiku is small though... how is this going to work in the box if the raven-haired maiden is actually her in some years XD

or maybe the box is bigger than she is, giving her a few space for other movements? @w@

What if maybe whatevers in the box, this 'black water' [as it looks like the water pouring out in the trailer was black] possesses the person put into it, maybe turning them into a 'God' [much like the idea of the twin sacrifice ritual, turning the other into a butterfly/god] and thus alters the body much like in FF2?
