    such changes wow

  • Bob Obb

    I prefer the older look, it’s cuter

    • usagi_san

      I agree, it does have a cuter charm to it.

    I’m glad this is getting a remake. Those old character models look awful IMO.

  • Ritsujun

    Dat soundtrack.

    I would’ve loved if Namco did something like this with Tales Of Symphonia HD. I can’t stand the character models for that game, especially for the kind of story they’re trying to tell.

    Glad that Sterk isn’t looking like a kid anymore.
    This time, he got everything to aim for Rorona.

    The moe-ectomy was a success! I like the look of both of them, no doubt. I’d say the best part about this is that it’s not like a style change mid-development; now there are two versions for whoever wants one style or the other!

    I am ready for New Atelier Rorona, but Tecmo Koei won’t tell me a release date.

    • PrinceHeir

      shh they’re already releasing it tomorrow :P

  • Eclipse

    Wow, this is looking great~!

    I’ve always liked the original’s cute chibi look it had going on, but I’d say that I prefer this one more because of how it sticks with the style of the other games.

  • icup ✔️

    i like the chibi models more.

  • talesoffan

    Looks really good. Will probably pick this up even through I have the first one.
