The End of Ryuusei: Planned All Along?
Some were quite shocked to hear that RnR3 may be the last title in the Ryuusei series, but we shouldn't be too surprised, this might have been planned all along. Allow me to explain:
When Ryuusei no Rockman (1) was first announced, it was being teased as the series to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the franchise. Thus, in 2006 RnR1 was released to celebrate the approaching 20th Anniversary, while the follow up (RnR2) celebrated the anniversary in full swing (2007).
From this logic, we can conclude that RnR3 will symbolize the end of the 20th Anniversary festivities this coming winter. As the 20th Anniversary comes to a close, so shall the series that celebrated it.
FUN FACT: Did you know each game in the series represents different intervals of time?
RnR2: The 'past' (ancient relics, Ooparts, etc.)
RnR1: The 'present' (the present experienced by the cast)
RnR3: The 'future' (fighting for the future)

If it is the end.... hence the word IF, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE... find Subaru/Geo's dad, that will finally make him shut up.ReplyDelete
Actually Protodude your wrong. If it were true, then its only logical that the anicient items were to coem first. thats the apprioate order of course.ReplyDelete
I don't know. I haven't seen any conclusive evidence saying that this is the last one. That one post where it said it was "reaching a climax" didn't really say that at all... If it is the last one, I'd like to see the return of EXE, or some tie-ins to the EXE series. Maybe time travel, where lan comes to the future, or we go in the past... You guys think Warrock is leaving? Cause I keep reading things like, "Warrock is still satying with Subaru..." and the Hunter VG thing makes it look an awful lot like Warrock doesn't play much of a part... Meh, never really liked him anyway.ReplyDelete
@Anon2: The whole "reaching a climax" thing is awfully similar to the way EXE 6 was being hyped. So, it's possible RnR3 may be the last or not.ReplyDelete
I thought it was similar to the way EXE3 was being hyped? I read the article, and it didn't say anything about it being near the end of the series' storyline. And don't forget, Climax can also mean the middle. XDReplyDelete
That's a good point, Protodude, but personally, I doubt it's the end. I wouldn't be surprised to see at least one more game, especially since RnR follows EXE's conventions so closely, thus (from the fans' perspective) Capcom could get away with making up to six games. Plus, Capcom might not be able to resist making more games if RnR3 does well. Nothing's definite until someone sees "End" on the last screen of the credits.ReplyDelete
Exe/Star force series are so boring....read the 1up.com review. They know exactly how I feel when I play these gamesReplyDelete
If RNR 3 is the last game, maybe the team responsible for those games will work on Rockman Dash 3
I'll be sad to see the series go if the third Ryuusei really is the last in the series. They're very entertaining exploring and collecting all of the Battle Cards and making Brothers over Wi-Fi.ReplyDelete
Climax is more towards the middle than the end >_>ReplyDelete
Wow, I'm so behind, I still haven't play RnR1 yet....ReplyDelete
Yes, that's what I was saying. Climax also means middle. The EXE series was most definitely not boring. Some people are just fans of the EXE gameplay. While I am a fan of the gameplay-- a BIG fan, I'm much more a fan of the character design and the plot. Which makes one wonder whether it's the characters and universe of the EXE games, or just the gameplay that haters don't like. I think RnR is boring compared to EXE... Plus the character designs are "meh"ReplyDelete
I hope they make a collection version of this as I also hope they do to the EXEReplyDelete
If 3 is the last game I also hope he finds his dad I mean I geting tired my self of hearing about it now
