Finally beat this last night. Now I'm trying to decide if I want to do the post-game stuff or move on to another rpg in my backlog.

I really enjoyed the game though.

I'm only 20hrs in (kids) but the txt sounds and the opening chest/finding stuff sounds, and general gameplay remind me so much of DQ. That's a good thing. Love this game!

I beat the game. The fact that the post game content happens BEFORE the end of the game pisses me off. I hate it when they do that. I beat the game and I want people groveling at my feet when I talk to them. I'm not going to return to a time before the game was completed and do some fucking fetch quests. Put optional stuff BEFORE the end of the game or AFTER the story. Don't put this shit after the end of the game but before the end of the story. Worst way to do post game content that I can think of (aside from forcing you to play through a game a second time to get the "real" ending).

The problem with doing it after the story is that Oliver goes home after the story. Then there is the issue if you wanted to collect the familiars in the White Witch's tower.

Personally, I don't care. Finished the game last night and really enjoyed it, tho having to replay the last boss fights a few times because I kept getting killed. I'll continue to play and maybe try to platinum it. Depends if I get bored.

Well the White Witches tower should still be there, it didn't explode or anything. Now the tower that Shadar was in...

I see nothing wrong with doing it post game. If they REALLY don't want to do that then just unlock it all before the final battle. It's not like you couldn't grind and beat her easily if you wanted to anyway. And like you, I lost a couple of times. It took me 3 tries to beat her. Afterwards when that message appeared on screen, it was a bit of a disappointment and I turned the game off.

You've still got a few dungeons left to do. You're close but have some important stuff left to do. I'd say you're 10-15 hrs from the end. A couple of narrative things happen in areas you've previously been to that are going to take a while. Also a bunch more side quests will show up. Make sure you get the 8 card reward to unlock oliver's true potential. It's an extra 100 HP and 100 MP. Those extra magic points help a lot with expensive spells towards the end.

Finally platted this last night now for it to sit on my shelf it's nice steelbook. Overall it was a pretty good game better than Tales of Graces by miles but I still enjoyed FF more. I liked the Pokemon/ Persona aspect of the game

Namco said they would consider a sequel if sales were good in the west. It was the 11th best selling game of January in NA, which is great, given it was released Jan 22 and all of the games ahead of it were established IPs and/or multi-platform titles.

There's probably a good chance they'll make a sequel, but it's hard to say for what system.

the key part of the story is if international sales are high enough? which i doubt is the case. even with all the great reviews for the game. I would not hold my breath.

Yes, with the exception of

Make sure you get the Astra spell from Horace prior to fighting her. It will help as its AOE.

I believe he is in every city as you progress throughout the game. If you missed him in one city go back and look for him

Just google a Horace guide. That would be the easiest way to do it. He is indeed in every town. In order.

Can someone help me? But this may be too specific of a question so I dunno...
I'm trying to catch a Aurora lynx. I'm in Billy Goat's Bluff (North) area and these are part of a bounty quest. There are four of them total every time I reload to face them.
So question: can I catch one of them even if they are part of a bounty mission? If so, I've been trying for over an hour so what gives? lol

EDIT: I gave up my quest for a bit and caught a Tokotoko by pure luck. I'm fairly newbish when it comes to this game but isn't this familiar supposed to be rare? Are there benefits to raising it? All I know about it is that when I battle against them I level up a lot faster

Well, I had missed him in Castaway Cove when I was there and only found him later when I got the quest for the guy who keeps losing his book, so I'm catching up.

I thought the next town after Hamelin was Perdidia, but he doesn't seem to be there.

So question: can I catch one of them even if they are part of a bounty mission? If so, I've been trying for over an hour so what gives? lol

No, you can't catch creatures during bounty missions, or at least I never had the option to capture during a bounty mission.

One of their evolutions becomes great healer, and the Toko line has the highest evasion in the game. However, they take FOREVER to level up.

Err, wouldn't that by definition be the point of a 'guide'? :lol:

But seriously, I was happy to have my guide book in front of me to avoid wasting time on stupid riddles. All they ever ask is you look up information in the wizard book and decipher symbols. Waste of time IMO.

I guess the time for NNK has come and gone. I'm surprised the thread completely died out. It does seem to be one of these play it once and you're done type unfortunately.


Well, for a bit of a revival, here's my NNK collection so far:

  • US Wizard edition (photo only shows box, everything else is tucked inside)
  • GameStop steelbook
  • ALL DLC including amazon Griffy, best buy Flutterby
  • Japanese master book
  • US hardcover strategy guide
  • GameInformer issue featuring NNK
  • Six custom t-shirts

Nice collection!

I have to say though, RPGs are usually the only games I do go back and play again. My PS2 and Wii (for Skies of Arcadia/Tales of Symphonia GC) are still hooked up for those cravings.
