So it seems that my favorite setting faces the possibility of being the next to have a remake, and I gotta say, I’m a little bit afraid. Let me explain.
I loved Echoes: Shadows of Valentia to bits, it was a massive and needed upgrade, in my opinion.
However I don’t think that either Path of Radiance or Radiant Dawn have aged all that poorly. Sure, the 3d models might not be the prettiest thing to look at, however the character portraits are some of my favorite this series has ever produced, and I really hope they don’t change them, and I don’t know how I would feel if they were to change the music too much.
Sure, maybe if they added a bit more music variety, like to the Begnion maps in PoR I don’t think I would object all that much (seriously, who thought giving the Oliver Villa map that somber music was a good idea?). Also, stats during combat for PoR is something I think we could all get behind.
Now, this opinion might not be very popular, however I’ve never been a fan of most of the returning PoR characters’ portraits in Radiant Dawn, except for maybe a few. I love the portraits for the new characters, however I always felt as though people like Ike and Titania had undergone facial surgery or something, 'cause they look way too different from their PoR counterpart for my liking.
Lastly, the only other thing I can think about is that I wouldn’t mind they did is if they were to give Part 1 of Radiant Dawn one more chapter or two, in order to allow Micaiah and her team to gain a little bit more experience, so that the power gap later on in the game would be less of a thing to worry about. Aside from more info and support conversations to give characters the development I love FE9 for, but I digress.
So, what about you, everyone? If the rumors about the Tellius remakes turned out to be true, what changes would you like the developers to make, and which changes would you dread? Let me know down below.
P.S. Edit -> Just thought of this now.
Please, for the love of all that is good, please give the player an incentive story-wise to make them enjoy the trip to the tower during Part 4 some more. I’ve always hated how I always enjoyed the rest of continental conflicts of the three parts, only for everything to slow down immensely until Part 4 Chapter 5, in which sometimes I feel as though it’s been way too long since anything actually relevant happened. And I find it to be a damn shame, too. I love the build-up to Yune’s release, and I actually really like the concept of her and Ashera.
By the time I get to the tower, I feel way too drained to enjoy the finale properly.
