Gameloft seems intent on completely solidifying its reputation as the unstoppable game producing juggernaut of the App Store. This latest trailer of theirs shows absolutely nothing of the gameplay, but provides the premise for a roleplaying game. Is this a hack and slash like Diablo? A more traditional RPG like Final Fantasy? Or maybe even a tactical RPG like Fire Emblem? We'll find out soon!

The speculation starts... now!

    Gameloft's trailers always look good, and there's no way to tell what the "actual" graphics will look like.

    I just hope there's a "real" story and not just the set-up at the beginning.

    Well, its from Gameloft, so we know its a knock off. I'm saying either Monster Hunter, or Zelda.

    I can only imagine what the on screen controls would look like for monster hunter.

    As much as it will probably an action oriented RPG like Zenonia or Zelda, or a hack and slash like Underworlds or Zenonia, I'm hoping for something that the iPhone needs badly, which is a traditional turn-based RPG. Ever since I started buying apps, I've been hoping for a real great Final Fantasy style game, and now more than ever I'd kill for one. The appstore is really lacking in turn based rpg's, with the only 2 I can think of right now being Vay (which hasn't really appealed to me so far) and TNA which has been one of my favorites since I bought it. If we're lucky Gameloft will make one like the original Final Fantasy which I have been playing alot of on my PSP lately.

    • Booch138

      What is this, Midieval? Hahaha is our hero an undead Fairy? Lmao meh i'd like to see what this about before I get any excitement prepped for this.

    • Loner

      if you want a good RPG then check out Vay

      • Chad

        Vay sucks. The graphics are hideous and the interface is horrible. I believe people are looking for something that feels a little more modern with a polished UI.

      They're Gameloft. As far as iPhone gaming goes, they can do anything.

        Emphasis on shit. Not hard to crank that out.

    Cool new opening.
    It's probably "Adventure" from the 2600.
    The ducks mostly come out at night....mostly.

  • Yariv

    now, that looks to me like it's gonna be a TES:Oblivion oriented game.

    • Yagami_Light

      I doubt it. It looks like the main character is set, and you don't create your own, and I doubt it will be a sandbox games like TES.

      • arc

        no way is it gonna be Oblivionesque

    This is a really stupid and badly written trailer for a game with a ridiculous name.

    I have hopes for the game, but this was a total waste of time.

  • Seamus

    The fairy at the end really makes me think that its going to be a zelda ripoff, and not a Zenonia/Link to the Past style birds eye view zelda, but Ocarina of Time style 3d zelda. Gameloft can definitely do it as they just did a 3d gta clone. I think this could be good or bad if that's what it is.

    It's nice that Gameloft tries to bring console-esque games to the iPhone. EA too. It looks pretty cool, but if it's going to be a 3D action RPG, then I'm just going to pass on this one and get RavenSword.

    Say what you will about Gameloft, I applaud their investment into the platform. They've jumped in with both feet while most of the larger publishers and developers have taken a wait-and-see approach. They may not hit a homerun every time out, but they're trying to fill genre gaps in the App Store, and at least trying to raise the bar higher for the iPhone as a gaming platform.

    Personally, I hear action RPG, in addition to Zelda, I think of a game like Fable...that would be DELISH.

  • spiffyone

    I'll state it one more time:

    Legend of Zelda is NOT an action/RPG. It's an action/adventure series. There's a difference.

    The game could very well be Gameloft's version of an LoZ game, but in that case it too would NOT be an action/RPG but an action/adventure game.

    Again, there's a difference.

    I'm surprised no one has brought up Knights in the Knightmare, that was the first thing I thought of after seeing the vid. The game play of the original is perfectly fit for a touchscreen (original was on DS) but using a finger instead of a stylus would make the game play quite hard. I just don't think it will be something like Zenonia, or Zelda.

    If the trailer was a little bit darker, I´d say Diablo...The speaker fits, too, but then again there is the fairy. Gameloft never made a real RPG before, so there is nothing to rely on, so here is my guess:

    An Hero of Sparta-like Dungeon Crawler. Not really gloomy at all, but packed with a lot of action and easy to pick up. But it´s definatly not going to be a Zenonia or Zelda-styled game. Never forget they are a french developer, so I bet on a western style game. There are way to many asien RPGs on the Appstore anyway.

    Go Gameloft, make me happy! :D

    I applaud Gameloft in almost every facet of development. Cutting-edge graphics? Check. Voice-acting and score? Check. Solid gameplay? Check, for the most part. But for the love of god who's coming up with these title names?

    The most egregious:

    Real Soccer
    Let's Golf
    Castle of Magic
    Gangstar West Coast Hustle
    and Dungeon Hunter?

    It behooves Gameloft to put a little more effort into this area, as it would most likely quell their number one criticism: putting out generic carbon-copies of established titles. I know you're not supposed to judge a book (videogame, whatever) by its cover. But when you see a title called Dungeon Hunter, it screams run-of-the-mill, hack-and-slash fare.
