Maybe you already know, but the 12th March will be released in Japan Phantom Brave, for Wii, with a new story and new characters, the most important seems to be Clonne, a... kinf of clone of Marona.

Here is the official site : http://nippon1.jp/consumer/phantom_brave_wii/index.html
(in Japanese)

I should be happy of this news, because in my opinion, PB is the second best game from NIS (after Disgaea 1). But... I don't have a Wii... And even if I had one, I'm afraid of playing PB with a wiimote...
I just hope it will be released on PS2, or 360 (or PS3 for those who have one).

Even though it's the only NIS game i don't like (i just hated the circle system), I'll probably get it for Wii since even if it's pretty bad for a NIS game IMO, it's still better than almost all wii games that are currently out.

Sounds interesting, but the PS2 version is enough. There are some new things, but it's not convincing enough to buy it. I don't have a Wii, also. Would be too expensive all in all. Also I wasn't really happy with the ending. To see it again would make me sad, I think.

TwilightRijax : well, it happens that the circle system isn't very accurate, but sometimes it helps to go beyond the limit. And I love the way you upgrade the characters / items, that's why I put it just behind Disgaea.

Kenji Icarus : yeah, the PS2 version is enough, but if I had a Wii and find the game for a low price (let's say 20€) I'll take it without hesitate !

ooooh scandal. This interests me a bit actually. I liked PB.

so Is it said how much of the main story is changed? Is it a remake?

Shika

There will be new characters, scenes and quests. I read that it will be an adaptation of the Director's Cut version, released in 2006 in Japan only.

Discordia

ahhhh okay. do you have a list of the changes in the Directors Cut version?

Nice, I was hoping for more info on this version. Phantom Brave is probably my favourite so far out of the NIS titles I've played...

So Marona's mysterious double is called Clonne? Strange..it also sounds a too close to Flonne. Since it's based on the directors cut version of PB that means it'll have the new game+ and the extra bosses from it right?

It (the name) is also close to the word 'clone'. Just with an extra 'n'. XD

Sadly, PB was my least favorite NIS game that I have bought so far (All the Disgaeas, Makai Kingdom, Soul Nomad, Atelier Irises and Mana Khemia). I simply don't like the fact that I can't power up one character and use him throughout the entire level to wreak havoc.

It's my only real problem.

But it's my play style, and I'm not willing to change it. I love having one character that is ridiculously powerful to destroy everything.


I remember in Disgaea 2, I had a top tier Majin that could attack almost anywhere on the map and had a movement of, like, 8 or 9 (I'm not entirely sure on that...). I think I need to work on his SP, so he can use his magic more often... He was only level 3000, but he could easily take out level 9999s XD. I reincarnated, a lot.

Ummm yes you can.

You just give one character a ridculously strong weapon. Thats what I did. Ash destroyed EVERY THANG!

Clonne's name is because she's a clone then? Makes sense... still sounds weird to me though.

Put enough time into the game and you wont even need weapons! www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_WoR3CupkQ (small character spoilers I guess..)

Of course everything takes longer to beat though! Having the energy saver skill helps a lot. I hope to have even beaten PX unarmed by the time this wii version reaches here. Hopefully that shouldn't take too long since they have most of the game translated already?

Sorry but I don't know the all the details about this new PB. But if someone can read japanese and translate the official site- but there's nobody like that here^^"

In PB I have an unique powerful character, you just have to summon him/her and destroy everything quickly.

My question is: Is this a remake with new stuff? Or a whole new story altogether?

I really love PB. Touching story, I liked the gridless system (which is why I bought MK) and I liked how even though it kinda looked messy, I could always do exactly what I wanted, when I wanted.

Zeriken: Fusion, fusion, fusion. My Ash was a Destructive God of Destructional Destruction. And not just him.

Shika
08-02-09, 07:25 PM
It's a remake with new stuff^^

And I agree for the fusion, my cute little witch was a fierce killer :p

You know, I never saw a flower as a dangerous thing until I used the Fusionist.

Shika

Oh yeah, I forgot it's name, but I love the attack who fires a lot of seeds :p It's just awesome :p I really love the fusion system of PB, you can keep the same item to beat the game, it won't be a problem^^

Well now i guess americans who liked the game and wants it for wii can be happy as NIS America has announced that they're bringing the game to america as "Phantom Brave: We Meet Again". Also they're getting it three months later than japan (which gets it in march), so their release date is in June.

Here's the source if someone wants it:

In terms of NIS games, Phantom Brave I have spent the least time on. If it comes to Australia it would to be interesting to see the improvements of the game compared to the original PS2 game.

"We meet again"? Makes it sound like its a sequel rather than an enhanced port. I hope the wait for the EU version is as short as that...if we even get the game that is.

Maybe you're right, but maybe it's just a cheap way to sell more copies of the game by making the fans believe it's somthing new :/
And I'm still curious about the gameplay with a wiimote :confused:

That's true but they probably just named it that because it sounds like "Wii Meet Again" or something like that. Kinda boring though, but it's better than just calling it PB Wii.

EDIT: Don't know if anyone cares but here are some pictures of Japanese phone cards with some nice PB Wii and Disgaea 2 PSP art on them (but unfortunately they're covered by the big fat ugly word "sample"): http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/1222477_1124.html

@TwilightRijax those are so cute ;_; I wish they'd lower the opacity of the 'SAMPLE' even just a little bit.

Clonne's outfit looks familiar. XD..it matches Haradaya's recent drawing of Pleinair:

I love Phantom Brave! It's one of the few games that actually made me cry.
I'm curious of the new content they've added O: Good thing I have a Wii, although I haven't been using it for a while..

I would've used one as a background if it weren't for that darn SAMPLE on them. I wonder how hard it'd be to get the real thing?

this one is the cutest^^ But yeah, the SAMPLE ruins it...

The game's already available in Japan, but I believe there is no date announced for US and PAL :(

Onislash

US release date is June sometime. I would imagine a PAL release would happen too.

PrismZeo
19-05-09, 03:25 PM
So still no news of a pal version yet? Anyway I've found a trailer for the US one

Have the voices been changed? It looks good and they get an free art cd too...

I'm wondering when Phantom Brave Wii will get a PAL release?
I hope it is very soon. I would like to buy it here in Australia.
Alternatively, I wonder if it would be easier to just release the NTSC version but allow it to be playable on PAL Wiis? (it's been done before with Metroid 2 on GameCube)

PrismZeo
23-06-10, 05:33 PM
So....any news on this showing up here this year yet? maybe its out and I missed it?
I'm tempted spoil the extra story for myself again now by watching videos of it like I did when I thought Soul Nomad would never get released....

They are releasing phantom brave far too many times
