Nobody loves Dr. Fetus. And that's why Dr. Fetus hates you!

Correction, portrait DLC is free at launch (In Japan.) After that, you'll have to buy it.

yeah that was pretty good



Is it 300 yen each or 300 yen for the whole shebang?

Also I saw at least 2 alternate fencers (boxart fencer!!!). This is a good thing but it seems weird you can use her portrait when she's the final boss.

Also, Force was not nerfed. That one screenshot showcasing 0% Force was an oddity. You start with 100% of your meters, like with 2U and 5.

To be honest, the whole game sounds like it might be just a little bit broken.

What are we missing, Legendary Names confirmation or did I miss that one?

Although I'm glad they're increasing the events' rear end in a top hat content, those seem amazing.

if it's 300yen per portrait, then that's kinda loving expensive just for some jpgs.

Looks like the entire thing is 300 yen - or you can only buy the portrait set of a single game for 100 yen.
Or get all of it for free shortly after release.

Correction:
The five sets for 100 en each are:
EO + EOII
EOIII
EOIV
EOV
10th aniversary special edition

The promotional art pieces are in their respective games, even the EOV DLC portraits.
It looks like aside from the EOV core and DLC portraits none will be customizable - so normal Fencer can get different hair, eye and skin color while cover art Fencer can't, would be my guess.

So I give this all about equal odds of either going super well or, uh, gettin' us all killed. Messily.

So a couple of prayers from you guys wouldn't hurt, yeah?


It's literally everything I was hoping they'd do. I don't even mind it being DLC 'cause hey, they feel like they gotta get money out of used copies somehow so whatever. I'll be getting it at launch so it's no skin off my nose.

And Fortress gets a new portrait alongside Landshark. I'm actually not that surprised because Himukai himself has always treated the two of them like co-protagonists. And I used them both as the core of my team so I am super down.

Also, as far as the gal hero alt portrait goes, blame Dragon Quest. Even more than just "oh Japan~~~" or whatever, it's specifically the place the DQ Warrior (and items like the magic swinsuit) have in the wider RPG Zeitgeist in Japan. The Hero is already very heavy with DQ references and is molded after that sort of leading RPG character, so if anything, if an outfit like that didn't exist, fans in Japan would be asking why it doesn't exist.

It'll still seem dumb to a lot of us, but I am absolutely not surprised to see it, especially with how heavy the Hero is with DQ tropes as it stands. And good grief, it's not like we want for other options

Well now my only concern is how they're going to actually fit these portrait options in the UI. EOV and EO2U's portrait selections got a bit awkward if you had DLC, but I can't imagine having to page through 4-8 of every class not directly featured in addition.

I just thought it looked stupid. Don't think anyone was really griping about Japan or anything when they revealed that. As people already pointed out, that portrait seems hilariously

There are new portraits in the DLC, so they're not completely selling us already made assets at least. Better value than the singular portraits in EO5 at any rate.

Oof, good point. Especially if they treat it like the generics in EO5 (Which are in this DLC pack, for the record) and let you use any of those portraits with any class. Given that we have stuff like Yggdroid portraits making it in, I'm pretty sure that's what they're going with.

At least the dragon quest warrior is hella muscly. I would have accepted it if Hero got hardbodied in her bikini version.

I'm not sure if I'm more excited for the fact you can do a 5x protector-2 party again, or the fact the EO4 title landy portrait is in. I really like that pose, and think it suits the class more than any of the portraits actually in the game. It looks way more dynamic, despite being barely different.

This right here is The Valid Criticism. Make 'em ripped as gently caress, Himukai, we know you did it with Wiglaf.

I really dig the box art poses for Landy and Fort, though the new ones are cool too. It'll be hard to pick which ones to use.

Oh, the joy of having good problems when previously we were worried it wouldn't happen at all.



On a related note though, I got to thinking: Pigtailed Fortress is now getting multiple variant portraits, and is even getting a Protagonist Pack portrait. It's safe to say she's getting high billing.

And yet... Fortress isn't a playable class in the game, as far as we know.

Including a lot more player skills than the classes wouldn't be too far out of the question. Given that for EOU and EO2U, Atlus copied and pasted the entire monster skill table file into the player skill table file to make the Grimoire system with!

That said, it depends on how the guests are handled. The stream last night showcased the Medic guest providing a field effect (Passive healing every turn) instead of actually being a battle guest. (And eating up the 6th slot would basically shut down Hero entirely.) So if cross class guests happen, it would probably be in a far more limited effect compared to the rest of the series.

I doubt they're doing unlockable classes again, because that model has several issues, and they've shied away from it entirely in their more recent games.
