Tatsumi (SPOILERS)

Postby Balance » Thu Sep 15, 2011 12:38 pm

Did anyone esle really like the character of Tatsumi? I found him to be really cool and kind of a unique character. I knew Tatsumi was Cocona because hey.. it's kind of obvious... well if you're a fan of the series and played AT2 before. But I still felt dissappointed after he was revealed to be Cocona in the game, because I really liked him.. Don't get me wrong I really like Cocona too! She's a cool cookie, but after getting attached to the character of Tatsumi in the first half of the game, I really missed him.. it made me wish Tatsumi and Cocona were separate characters. I'm use to have 8 characters in your party from the other 2 previous games. 5 being the vanguards and the other 3 of course being the lovely Reyvateils so when there was only six slots for characters in the menu, you can put 2 and 2 together and figure out that Tatsumi is Cocona. Now since everyone really likes Cocona, i'm sort of wondering if anyone esle disliked the fact of Tatsumi being Cocona like I did and wish Tatsumi was his own character.

I wouldn't have minded if Tatsumi was his own character, but only if it meant I still got Cocona, since she was seriously amazing ~

'Losing' Tatsumi wasn't that big of a deal because Cocona had a better weapon, and played better.

Either way, really wish they hadn't of gone with such a small party of vanguards.

If there's ever an Ar tonelico 4, you can betcha there will be more vanguards. This was like their experimental game. They've got much more experience now.

Yes of course I'd never want to dump Cocona from ATQ I mean that game wouldn't have made much sense without her there, I just really liked Tatsumi's character alot.

And I suppose so but for me they seem pretty much identical when it came to fighting styles it's just that when Tatsumi became Cocona some of the moves were switched around a little, like how Tatsumi's left supermove was the spinning move while with Cocona it was the down supermove. Which I LOVE to spam this move so much...

And yes the small vanguard was quite dissappointing, i'm sure it was for a number of people, or maybe just everyone. Hopefully there is a Ar Tonelico 4! It'll be nice to see what they come up with. I'm not sure why they kept switching battle systems between each game, but it's certainly a unique tactic in selling video games, not that I really mind the constant switch in battle systems because usually the battle system would coexist with the story of that game, if there was a AT4 would they change the battle system again or keep it? Plus i'm interested in what kind of twist they'd put in for the girls, such as 2 having the Infelsphere and 3 have the multiple persona.

Well I suppose 1 way they could have handled Tatsumi is just making him like a guest in your party but can become playable as much as you want with DLC like how Gust and NISA are like in 1st Hyperdimension Neptunia(not including Red or 5pb). Though the problem with this is, it would have made it a little off balance and weird(not sure of the proper wording to describe it, but I do hope you know what I mean). Like it was already lacking in the vanguards to begin with, so would only have 2 vanguards until Cocona shows up. Plus it would really feel off with how the story goes.

But I do think that Cocona is better. In fact once she joins the party after Tatsumi is no longer playable, I just use Cocona since her attacks are better than Aoto's and Hikari's.

They could have done a costume sort of thing. They let you have young Misha on MoE, so why not let you have Tatsumi?

But, they didn't.
