Once a staple of the video game industry, the Japanese RPG has all but disappeared on home consoles. Luckily, developer Sinxsoft’s upcoming Wii U RPG, Cross Reverie, could help to fill that void! We’ve mirrored the trailer below for your viewing pleasure!
From the trailer, the title bears some similarity to the GameCube RPG Tales of Symphonia, particularly in regards to its turn-based combat and graphic style. Hopefully Cross Reverie can satisfy the Wii U audience the same way that Symphonia was able to appease RPG-starved GameCube owners. Sinxsoft plans to focus on the digital version of the game, but hasn’t ruled out the possibility of a physical version, should there be a demand for it.
Cross Reverie seems to be yet another example of an independent game developer stepping up to deliver an experience that the major publishers simply aren’t providing. Sinxsoft originally brought the game to Kickstarter to seek funding, but quickly pulled the title after a publisher agreed to fund the game. Sinxsoft has yet to reveal the publisher behind the title, though Xseed and Deep Silver both seem like strong possibilities, given their track records. The game doesn’t boast a “name” developer like Koji Igarashi, but the fact that Sinxsoft has been able to secure a publisher should speak volumes about the way the industry is gauging fan interest.
