[JP] Grimms Notes (by Square Enix)

Grimms Notes is a new RPG from Square Enix available on the Japan App Store. It's based on the Grimm Fairy Tale stories. One great thing I noticed is no stamina and since it's free to play that's a good thing. This game had over 2 million downloads in only a few days of being released. Easy to see why when you play it.

僕らは生まれた時、一冊の本を与えられる。
 -役割を与えられた主役と、空っぽの脚本をもった脇役が紡ぐRPG

僕らは生まれたときから、
一冊の本を与えられる。

僕らの世界、生きる意味、運命、
それらすべてが記された戯曲、
『運命の書』。

全智の存在、ストーリーテラーが
記述したその『運命の書』に従い、

僕たちは生まれてから死ぬまで、
『運命の書』に記された役を演じ続ける。
それがこの世界のひとびとの生き方。

だからさ、教えて欲しいんだ。

空白の頁しかない『運命の書』を
与えられた人間は、

いったいどんな運命を演じて
生きていけばいいのだろう?

No Stamina??? I really wonder how that will work out for them.

The artwork is so gorgeous I feel like I want to dl the game just for that. And the gameplay screens look nice as well. However I feel like it may be too RPG for me to play with my poor Japanese skills :\

Do you understand Japanese? How's the gameplay?

I've been playing and putting loads of money into Fate Grand Order. I think I can only manage 1-2 f2p mobages at a time. I even have Love Live and Terra Battle but I just do dailies on those and rarely play. Hard to keep up all the work.

I agree but I long quit feeling like I have to at least play once a day and the only game i do play at least once a day is final fantasy record keeper and now grimm notes so that's two
I understand some but it's hard for me to follow the stories but the menus and all that I'm good w and actually gaming is teaching me Japanese. I have always preferred games from Japan anyways. Now to my point you can play this game and not know Japanese and figure it out ok the only thing is the story will be hard to follow. Cut scenes aren't as animated for example if nothing else a game like final fantasy xiii on iOS it's in Japanese but the cutscenes are very animated and so it's easy to kind of follow what's going on. Japanese is a pretty tough language to learn. I actually am better w Russian language and Italian than Japanese but I'm getting there
One last things it's not a tell tale game so at end of the day even if you knew zero Japanese you can enjoy the game cuz the joy comes from the numerous characters and teams you can put together and the battle system which to me is very TWEWY-Esque
