We are so proud of the game, and of the launch trailer, which was made by Raigan and Mare, in-house. This trailer took a very long time due to the amount of precise footage and editing required. We had initially planned for the colour changing and position matching to be done programmatically, but hilariously ran out of time to write that functionality as the launch date approached and had to do it the old-school manual way. That alone took about five 12 hour days!
But you can see why we’d want to include that, it looks fantastic. We’ve included some screenshots of what we call the “manifesto” section too – this video is not only a great showcase of the gameplay and features of N++, but also a showcase of our vision for N++. We love how the music and the statements are so well matched to each other: bold, punchy, unashamed.
That music is awesome, isn’t it?! it’s Odyssey, by Yser C:
Well, Now that I’ve rested well, let’s look at some things of this picture. We have three new characters, Bridge girl that I call Hashiko. A brunette that looks a lot like Masaru, I shall call you Basaru. Cause you’re da boss~ A green(?) hair fellow that I haven’t decided a name for. Also, let’s appreciate Taichi’s big scowl. Beautiful.
The girl seems mysterious and the green hair fellow seems to be a friend, maybe. He may just be an extra tossed in there for the hell of it. Basaru seems he may be a troubled. That may also be because I love Masaru too damn much and they look way too much a like. Bias~~
As for Zero Two retcon, I’m starting to wonder if it’s existence IS wiped from this universe. Thus, “The future that should not have been chosen.” I say this because the feel i get from Yamato and Hikari is different from what we got in zero TWo. Hikari seems quiet and mysterious, like she was in Adventure. Miyako helped her open up a little in the series, but without Miyako, she may have stayed reserved.
Mimi seems to be in America. The way she is dressed seems to convey that plus the crowd around her have differently colored hair. That may not be a good argument, but Digimon generally never made extra characters differ from brown or black hair. There may have been a few exceptions, but it’s like that in a lot of series’ sometimes.
And cellphones. lots and lots of cellphones. Seems to be the right period all right. lol.
