Jump Festa 2011 – Reasons To Go

After my complaints, here are some reasons to tough the crowd and attend Jump Festa 2011.

The 3rd Birthday Demo – This was available at the SQEX Booth at Tokyo Game Show 2010, but the levels and equipment available this time will be different. Players can choose between Normal and Easy mode and enjoy testing them on Toshiba TVs that have been specified to fit the PSP’s resolution perfectly.

I enjoyed the demo, but to be honest, the graphic quality reminded me of the PlayStation versions of the games, which isn’t the greatest. Handling was 7/10, easy to lock on and shoot but overall a little uncomfortable. Regardless, Aya Brea is one of my favorite characters, I love how her storyline is being updated.

Dissidia duo decim Demo – Well, I’m not Dissidia’s biggest fan. But, seeing as Laguna from Final Fantasy VIII was recently announced as a playable character on the Cosmos side, I’ll admit my interest peeked. I mean, Lightning and Kain will be in it too, even if it’s just for fan service it might be worth buying. Besides, there’s always multiplayer mode. The duo decim has added the RPG mode which I tested at Tokyo Game Show but I can’t remember it being anything spectacular.

New SQEX Goods – Specifically the Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Pendant and Ring that will be on display. They’re expensive but oh so lovely, I think they show a lot more thought and concern as far as design goes in comparison to the previous Kingdom Hearts jewelry.

Holiday Postcards – A collectors item available at the SQEX Booth! I got last year’s cardset, this year there will be a similar set being handed out while supplies last to visitors who earn a stamp from both the trailer and the demo areas of the booth. The insides are the same, but you can get a pack featuring either Dissidia or Birth by Sleep Final Mix.
