I have to agree, truly beautiful video.
I'm very tempted to buy but my only concern would be longevity and replayability.

Edit:- I've taken the plunge. Couldn't resist.

Bummer
I too am very disappointed in that bullet point. It would have been an instant purchase without that. Now I'm actually going to have to think about it given my situation (neither of my iOS devices has cellular capability, and for 10+ hours a day, I'm in an environment with no wifi).

It's particularly sad in this case because Legend of Mana is one of my favorite PS1 games, and I'm getting some (probably intentional) serious LOM vibes from this.

I have been playing this for a while in Japan
Thankfully I got the English update for free this morning
Yes it does require an internet connection outside of that this game is super good and I have spent months on it but now the English update meant to have English I had to start over but that's fine because I like it that much
If you don't have a good connection skip it and move on that easy
Not sure why it's required there are daily log in rewards like a FTP game and some other aspects that mirror FTP but there is no energy timer bs to speak of and you don't have to spend

Such a fantastic game till now...
Super polished, well designed and well written with a tonne stuff to do! Worth the price and even more but as everyone here says or is aware, same for me, the online requirement is a big let down. It has some online goodies a la Chaos Rings 3... but the point that you can't take it with you all the time is a letdown... Also, it keeps trying contact with the server toooo many times (in between stages, before/after battles, in building stuff etc)... This means (at least for me) that even on a strong wifi i already have some disconnections (not something big but is a no, to an already ''don't want stuff'')...
As an optimist guy, I'll hope for an offline update but from the structure, i am not sure that it will ever happen.

As i told at the beginning despite the online stuff is a really really good game that i would spend even more for it (on an offline version)!!!

Good luck to the devs anyway.

Have been playing for an hour or so and here are some initial imps.
As you start it really does hold your hand a la tutorial mode and in fact it felt like playing a kids game, that is until you get let loose on the world.
Man is there a lot to do.
There are spirits to collect, eggs to find to open up new areas, menus to cook to gain loyalty points with your companions, upgrades and evolutions and subsequent material gathering for that, house and furniture upgrading, combat, open exploration......it just goes on and on.
The levelling system starts off quick but I can see will take more time as you progress.
According to the website I believe level 100 is max level but then this unlocks a secret mode? Not sure.

Ok, yes it's online only and it does server checks when you leave areas or change menus etc
For me not such an issue as I mainly play at home or can get a good 4G signal around town.
I'm wondering if some sort of wider social element might come into it? Who knows.
So far I'm happy and no bugs!

the hand holding tutorial is a ruse I have put a lot of hours into it from the japan version and there are times you will die and die often it has some difficult moments for sure but i like that about it. There is more to do in this game than any other i have played
you will sit down to play it to kill a few mins next thing you know its been a couple hours ha

Very interested in this game, would appreciate it if someone could answer a few questions I have.

What happens when you die in the game? Do you just have to start over the stage you were on?
Can you save often in the game? Any time you want or are there save points?
Any tips or tricks? Things to keep in mind?

Thanks in advance!
