Operation Backlog Completion 2024

Last month, we talked about an upcoming turn-based JRPG called Destiny Connect.

Now, thanks to an interview from Gematsu with the game’s director Yoshihiko Toda, we have some more information about it.

Destiny Connect is focused on Clocknee Town. I thought it might begin there and then the characters would journey to other places, but it sounds as though exploring the town through different eras of time is the main focus.

It will take about 20 hours to complete, and there aren’t any side quests.

That disappoints me a little. A good story is what I want the most, but side content can be a lot of fun. Especially if this game takes place in and around a single area, I’d hoped for some side quests to add more variety. It sounds like they’re aiming for a very plot-focused game instead.

The interview also goes into detail about the art style and a little bit about the turn-based combat system, and finally, there is a tease that it might be localized.

I have to admit, I’m less excited about Destiny Connect than I was before this interview, although it still looks cute. What do you think about the latest information?
