Dissidia Final Fantasy NT has been going on quite strong since it’s release back at the start of 2018, with a rough launch that has lead to a consistent online competitive community.

In what could be a strange turn of events, A.O.T 2 – which released back in March 2018 – now has a demo available to download. With the release of A.O.T 2 Final Battle only a couple months away now, if you have yet to play the title you can now get in some good action time with the omni-directional mobility gear.

A.O.T 2 is a good fun recreation of the anime, and ‘Final Battle’ will be bringing more content from the third season. A.O.T 2 Final Battle will be launching worldwide on July 5th.

It’s not very often we get to put out new coverage for Dynasty Warriors 9, but here we are Spring 2019 – just over a year from it’s initial launch back in February 2018, and KOEI Tecmo has pushed out a big Spring Update, free for all players of the game!
For those of you still playing or have been waiting for a reason to get back into the game, but are unsure on about purchasing the rather expensive DLC packs (expect a Warriors’s Judgement on this soon). Now may be the time to gather your fellow Warriors and head back out into the open world of China!
The update itself includes the following:
DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 v1.27 (PS4) / v1.24 (Steam)
–Added BGM from Previous DYNASTY WARRIORS series.
–Added new emotes.
–Added an animal companion system.
–Added a bodyguard system.
–Added new modes “Rampage” to the Arena.
–Made Improvements to Castle Sieges.
–Added animals to the gallery.
–Corrected a number of other minor issues.
The XB1 version of the game should also now have the update as of time of writing.
As you can see, there is quite a lot to dig your teeth into. Not only do we just have update notes, KOEI Tecmo have also gone into detail on what some of these new systems entail. Now animals will be able to develop as they fight alongside you, with varying degrees of differences on how each animal will develop uniquely. Though to also add to this, if your animal happens to fall in battle, then they are permanently dead. You can also spend upgrade points on developing your animals even further, increasing their abilities on the field of combat.
Alongside the new integrated animal companion system, there is the bodyguard system. You can now invite a fellow officer to join you as an AI companion either by finding them in town or inviting them to your hideaway. You will also have the choice to swap their weapons and accessories. There are two categories of bodyguards, “Attack” type and “Defense” type, so pick which fits your fighting style best!
That’s all there is for this update, but it’s good to see the ol’ girl is still kicking, even if the game suffered a dreadful launch. Certainly now, even still with it’s quirks and oddities, the content is finally here for us to dabble in.
Are you glad Dynasty Warriors 9 is still getting free updates? What else do you hope to see added in future ones? Let us know in those comments!
Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists is a spin-off to the standard Atelier series in celebration of it’s 20th Anniversary. Bringing tons of fan favourite characters along with characters you may have forgotten all into one mini-universe that focuses on the adventures of the titular Nelke. We want to quickly add this is Impressions from early game, and it is for the Nintendo Switch edition of the game.
Let’s get right off the bat that this is a spin-off, and does have it’s own unique play style and design. It doesn’t play like the normal Atelier experience you have become accustomed to, but that definitely isn’t a detriment to it. If anything, the changes and design choices fit the series for the better, especially with the game’s focus on Town Management over Alchemy based adventuring.
The game starts off with Nelke and her maid Misty walking towards a new region and town known as Westbald. You find out that Nelke has been assigned by her father to become the town’s new Governor. When you first make your way into town (note all this is done in cutscene form) you meet the current village chief; Kunos – a young man who had the village dumped on him by his early retiring father. Kunos will be your go-to man for all general essentials for the village.
Kunos guides you to your place of operations, which is a lavish mansion upon a hill. From there you get put into full hand holding mode to teach you how to play the game. Most of the game is spent in menus and simulation style play. You are given a plot of land with various space to construct and play buildings. You first start off making a general store for veteran character Pamela. You also soon find out that you can head on out and Investigate varying regions outside of the village. This enables you to seek ingredients and materials to further develop your town.
When you go on these investigations you will be put in a walking simulated cutscene, where every now and then your party will stop and find search spots. You have no control aside from the option to “run” which will allow your characters to reach the end faster, but in return you will skip over possible search spots. When you do get given full control, it is when a random battle appears, where you will then go into your typical Atelier style Turn-based combat. This is the usual really, you pick your attack options, after each attack you grow your power gauge in which you can then spend on special attacks. These stack from battle to battle which is handy to prepare for future possibly tougher battles.
When you reach your goal, or your investigation time ends you return back to the town and get a report on what your findings were. Once you have learned these actions you will come across an Alchemist, who happens to be from the Atelier Marie games. Marie is here investigating a local suspicious rumoured Tree, which Nelke is also investigating similar things. They decide to team up and Marie settles in to your town – but for this to be the perfect match you decide to build her an Atelier to call her own.
A familiar face has been your go-to construction guy, who has been handling all your buildings and improvements. It’s none other than Hagel, the often Blacksmith of the Atelier series. You give him materials you need and he will construct the building you desire. After so many days (turns) pass the building will be fully constructed.
Now with the Atelier up, and general shop you can start properly developing your town. Alchemy can be used to create basic items or anything that you come up with. You can then sell them off at the General Store or use them to help with investigations or even for further town development.
You have your town ready in it’s base form now, and you start to get given your own free control of the game. It really is a different kind of beast this game in comparison to it’s other entries in the series. Though it seems like you are watching more things happening rather than personally controlling it yourself, but it suits the style of game that is definitely more like a Town Management Sim than your typical JRPG. Though there are a few hiccups, like it is odd that odd points within talking cut-scenes certain lines of dialog won’t be voiced. We have been really enjoying it so far, and hope that you don’t overlook the game for the next proper Atelier game arriving later in the year. We give this a big thumbs up of approval!
A few days ago it was confirmed that a new character would be revealed during an upcoming Live Broadcast scheduled later on today, however we have gotten new information on the DLC character in question a little earlier than expected.
Zenos yae Galvus of Final Fantasy XIV fame is the new character announced. Originating from the Stormblood expansion pack for the game, he will be a new villain added to the roster. Hopefully more information on him will appear in the Live Broadcast later on today, along with more details on Dissidia Final Fantasy NT’s future content plans.
Zenos will be releasing April 11th worldwide on the Playstation 4 and PC via Steam edition of the games, and will be able to be purchased on it’s own. It will not be included with the current Season Pass which ended with Snow’s recent release.
Below you can check out a reveal trailer for Zenos, showing him off in action:

In some random news (thanks to our buddy BlackKite), KOEI Tecmo has formed a collaborative partnership with 2019 Suzuka 8 Endurance Race, with Dynasty Warriors 9 characters featuring as sponsors for Motorcycle manufacturers that are part of it all.
Along with the partnership and characters sponsoring, the manufacturers Motorcycles will also be sporting Dynasty Warriors 9 themed liveries. They have already featured in quite a few PR events around Japan for the upcoming Endurance Race.
Below you can see the four guys representing their brands:
You can find more information and images of their collaborative efforts on their Event site here! There is currently no news if these collaborative outfits will make their way to the Dynasty Warriors 9 game itself. So we just have one question left to ask, which manufacturer do you support?
