Yeah, Rainy Frog decided to step in and provide the review copies for Game Freak. How about that? 😛 Anyway…

Little Town Hero is a JRPG by Game Freak… WAIT WHAT!? Yep, from the creators of Pokémon comes I believe to be their first all-new original JRPG, possibly since the SNES? Whenever Game Freak does a non-Pokémon thing, it’s usually in a different genre. Examples include HarmoKnight (3DS), a platform/rhythm game, Pocket Card Jockey (3DS), a solitaire/horse-racing game, and Drill Dozer (GBA), a 2D platform digging game. Actually the director of Little Town Hero is the same person who directed Pocket Card Jockey; Masao Taya. So how does this game fare? Is it a good idea or a bad idea? Let’s find out!

Title: The Alliance Alive HD Remastered
Platform: Nintendo Switch
Developer: Cattle Call (3DS original and HD remaster)/Grezzo (design assistance on the 3DS original)
Publisher: FuRyu (JP)/NIS America (NA and EU)
Release Date: October 8th, 2019 (NA)
File Size: 5GB

Hey look at that another NIS America game review! This time we’re looking at The Alliance Alive HD Remastered, an HD version of the 3DS game by Cattle Call and FuRyu released back in 2017. The 3DS original even had close Nintendo ally Grezzo help out on design! Cattle Call seemingly did the remaster on their own (makes sense as Grezzo seems strictly Nintendo-exclusive and just put out Link’s Awakening on Switch). Actually, all parties involved in Japan actually worked on an earlier game for 3DS; The Legend of Legacy back in 2015.

Literally the same director, character designer, composer, Grezzo, the works came back for this game. But they actually got a big name to write the story; Yoshitaka Murayama, the creator of Suikoden! So with that out of the way, how’s the game? Does it make you feel alive or as dead as Chunky Kong? Let’s find out!
