I'd say that for her in the first game but, nowadays, she's pretty one-dimensional.

The game is nice, but I would have liked more maps and characters, really. I wouldn't mind if there was DLC maps and characters, but I suppose it's not happening. Perhaps they could make a Yon Megami Online 2 in the future, who knows.

I would say this is pretty good news. This is pleasing to me.
Vert deserves something after all this time. Who knows, if they spend more time on her, she may grow a bit as a character. If not, more Vert.

Wouldn't really be surprising if that is actually the case. She has been rather prominently featured ever since the game was first announced, she was the first character to be shown and the setting is based off the fictional MMO she is always playing just to name two examples. A lot of people, me included, thought that this would be the case.

I guess the question at this point is whether or not the game actually does that justice.

The entries focusing on switching around the "protagonist seat" have been rather mixed to say the least, regarding the spin-offs anyway. As far as my opinion lies, some felt like they utilized their chosen character well enough while others felt like the chosen character's image was just slapped on without much thought.

I can only hope the game ends up being more in the former category and not the later. My skepticism over various aspects definitely isn't helping thought.

If I may add to this: if a character occupies the protagonist seat, they have to do more than just what they already do over and over again.

She is also the one who interacts the most with Bouquet and vice-versa, but then again, it is not -that- surprising considering Bouquet looks like she could be Vert's sister if she had one.

Asami Imai (Noire) appeared on a special hosted by Famitsu on Nico playing the game:

http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv290032860 (may be restricted to non-premium users)

(starts playing around 17th min and lasts till around 29:00). As expected, she plays as Noire.

Finally had a chance to play myself.

- it looks competently done, more or less. Still a bit janky, though;
- it's true that the 2D parts removed some of the animation, but I suspect it's something related to their implementation of UE4. They did add more movements though;
- there's only one save slot and basically, as of now, only one kind of revive item you can only use on yourself. From what i gather there's only one ending;
- While the game as of now focuses a bit on Vert's reactions (especially with Boquet) most events for now are with the most of the cast, which helps (unlike certain parts in VII);
- Even at the beginning there's a lot of fourth wall breaking, mostly by - you can guess - Neptune.

Yeah, it is a weird choice. You would expect Blanc having a skill like Resurrection given that she is a Priest.

Skill Showcase

Hot diggity damn...looks like Nepgear will be my main after all. Spell barrage spam for days <3

Also, why the heck do the Candidates look (keyword: "look") way funner to play than their older sisters? I mean, Ram frickin' rides her windmill shurikens in one of her skills!

Thanks for this.

It seems some characters have more skills than others. I'm not a fan of this, I prefer when everyone is equal.

And yeah, some character have more skills than others, which is bullshit tbh, its like they want you to play them more than the rest

Because the science of physics is for losers.
