Beyond Good and Evil TWO!!!

Postby Jez » Sat May 12, 2012 4:45 pm

Well i know theres another thread with this in but i cant find it.

In any case theres been a bit more of a hub-bub surrounding this in the last week or so with a Michael Ancel interview confirming that the game is being made but likely not going to be released for the current console generation.

RPS have a nice article on it all right now with a gameplay video

I loved the first game, played it 5 or 6 times -

loved the humour
loved the setting
loved the story
loved the characters
loved the music
loved the whole damn thing

there was nothing to hate except maybe the dodgy camera at times.

If the new game manages to get right what the first did then it truly deserves to be the best seller that the first shamefully wasnt.

Yes please. Loved the first one, final boss was a bit of a drag though.

Ubisoft confirms that Michel Ancel isn’t working on Beyond Good and Evil 2. So says an IGN interview that's now been removed.

Pretty safe to assume that though since he left the company a while ago. Another game for the Half Life 3 pile methinks. :(

Apparently Beyond Good and Evil 2 is being funded by Nintendo as an NX exclusive...

Why? It looks like it is very similar to the situation with Bayonetta 2, either Nintendo help finance development and it becomes a console exclusive, or the game doesn't get made.

I really don't see how this is anything but good news. Without Nintendo stepping in this game was probably never going to be made.

There's plenty of appetite for this game on pc it could have been made for consoles and pc easily. So no not good news for the pc players that don't do consoles.

I doubt the Gamecube version of the first outing sold anywhere near what it did on PC, PS2 and Xbox so to see it become a Nintendo exclusive made simply to promote the NX console makes me a bit angry.

No Beyond Good & Evil wasn't a huge seller I know but there's been a steady amount of interest in a sequel now for years and years from those who loved it on all platforms so this just feels like a kick in the face after years spent wishing and waiting for something to finally materialise.

It doesn't matter how much of a market you think this game might have on PC, when the original came out it massively underperformed and didn't sell enough copies. Since then Ubisoft have held fire on making another one because they feel the same will happen again and I'm sure they have done the market research to back this fear up. As it stands the only way this game was going to get made was via backing from a console manufacturer. So it's not a case of Nintendo stealing it from PC players, but Nintendo stepping in to see that the game gets make.

If you want to get mad at anyone, get mad at all the people who didn't bother to buy the game when it first came out. If they had done we would have had a multiplatform B&E 2 a long time ago.
