Lots of games are made in Asia not just in Japan these games are far more diverse than Persona and Final Fantasy. All first party Nintendo games anyone? That isn’t to say though that their are not many people out there that right them all of as JRPG’s, too hard, too much anime inspired, etc. When so many great games do come from Japan we should enjoy all the games we can get. Which is why developers of the Scalebound are confident that this game like many others that make it to the west that you can barley tell are created outside of the United States or Europe they hope to have a “broader appeal” says Gamespot.
Scalebound is an interesting game that looks like a mix of Final Fantasy, a monster you control, and an action game. Finale Pokemon anyone? This will happen in the form of Thuban your artificial and totally customizable dragon that fights along side you as an AI character and you can also fly on him. With breakable weapons, swords, arrows of all kinds, and tons more crazy fighting scenarios it is easy to see why if done right the game could definitely develop a fan-base and have a wide appeal. It will also have a crazy kind of co-op mode you can play with friends.
