Seeing as I was bored, I suddenly had the urge to recall one of my favorite games: Which was the Dark Cloud series. For those that never heard of it: Dark Cloud was a Dungeon Crawling RPG for the PS2 released on the year 2000 and 2001.
The game featured the story of a young boy who journeys to destroy an ancient evil and restore the ruined world using the Atla. Can this youth restore what the monster has destroyed?
It had a sequel called "Dark Chronicle" which was named "Dark Cloud 2" in North America released on the year 2002 and 2003 for the PS2. The sequel featured a variety of changes including the use of voice acting, graphics update, minigames, improvements on Georama mode, Robot and Monster forms, and an overall better plot (IMO).
The story revolves around 2 chosen individuals: Maximillian and Monica, who possess the Atlamillia which permits them to travel back and forth through the future. They are tasked with defeating the Evil Emperor who has corroded time. Can Max and Monica restore the future?
In both cases, the games features a Georama mode where the player can manually move pieces of the ruined world (such as buildings or rivers) to their liking in order to customize each of the individual towns that are present in each dungeon. In the case of Dark Cloud 2, the player can create additional land or houses by using materials (whereas in Dark Cloud 1, you had a limited number of items to choose from).
There have been rumors of Dark Cloud 3 starting all the way from the year 2009. The only thing that can be deduced is that the tittle is to be a PS3 exclusive, but these are all rumors. The are no conformations Dark Cloud 3 is being worked on, but the year 2013 still shows many fans giving support for its creation.
So, talk about these 10 year old games and the possibility of a sequel? Meh, I don't know how they could get any better than Dark Chronicle. So many things were done right there even with characters. They fixed a lot of issues present in Dark Cloud in just 1 sequel, I am amazed!
