I don't really care as long as the story flows well with the previous games. The Lunar series was never about graphics. It would be great for continuity, but as Dragon Song shows it doesn't have to be completely 2D in order work out. I'd be happy to just get a Lunar 3 after all these years - I don't think I'd nitpick on a single thing. Well, until I got it home and in my hands, of course. Then I would dissect it. :P

From my understanding, if Lunar 3 comes out on a Sony console then 2D isn't an option.

Yeah, pretty much. It's getting very hard for a 2d game to be approved.

When I first played SSSC, I'd only played about two current-generation games, Ocarina of Time and Legend of Legaia. I was really startled to see that SSSC was still 2D since I'd thought all the current games would be 3D like Legaia (which is essentially 2D play but with 3D sprites and backgrounds). And if it was possible to think like that in 1999, it's undoubtedly even more true now.

I'd like to see it cel-shaded like Wind Waker, I think, but wouldn't really expect it to be unless the gameplay really changed.

Cel-Shading worried me when it first came out simply because it was so 'new and different', but now that you bring it up I actually think it would work well with a 3D Lunar. I would much prefer Cel-Shading to completely CG characters.

My main hope for Lunar 3 is that it retains at least a bit of the battle system from the old Lunar games. Lunar Legend and Dragon Song have both completely altered the battle system more or less. Would be nice to return to those similar battles. They worked so well. :P

Everything else I will take it as it is given. My expectations are surprisingly low. I just want a Lunar 3 now. My hopes were all but snuffed out before Dragon Song was announced. :wink:

It really is a shame that 2D Games are becoming so difficult to get approved. I enjoy technological advancements as the next person, but I don't see how using what has worked in the past is such a big deal. Everyone is always so quick to 'push the limits of their hardware'. :roll:

I'd prefer 2d like the other Lunar games and they also better be anime.

I'd rather have a mix of cel-shading and 3D.
Okay, Hacker, listen up. I am tired of your fake assumptions! What is your problem?! Do you just like to mess with 14 year olds, who KNOW they don't lie to people at a site they consider HOME?!! PM ME NOW!

The game play should be in 3d, but the movies in 2d, like the others. That's what I was thinking.

I would love a richly detailed 2-D Lunar, or a design like Grandia or Grandia II if they decided to go 3-D. I don't know about a cell shaded Lunar though, only if it were done perfectly.

I am to the point that I dont really care anymore. I'd rather 2D, but outside of handhelds, its becoming a thing of the past. All I can say is Look at Grandia III, it looks amazing in 3D and it has an Iwadare Soundtrack to boot. Grandia and Grandia II were awesome, so if GIII is also great, I can't see how that wouldn't be an indication of what the Lunar Series might be like in 3D.

Actually, I wouldn't mind Grandia II-esque graphics. Even though they were 3-D, they actually felt pretty 2-D because of the angle of presentation. Of course, I'd love to see it get Tales of Rebirth or Shining Tears treatment. Those beautiful hand-painted backgrounds and cute character sprites are so perfectly Lunar . . .

At the rate Lunar 3 is taking...

I still see potential for an entirely animated Lunar.

Imagine the whole game, instead of merely cutscenes...in anime format...

If Lunar 3 takes long enough, that's what we might get.
Don't blame me, Lucia promised me lots of snuggles and cuddles if I would be her PR guy.

I'd think getting nothing is a lot more likely than getting anime. Nothing, after all, is what we've gotten for the last ten years.
