Here's a "Traitor" trailer for BG&E HD. Gotta admit it's kinda neat to see them hype up this old game with a flashy new trailer.
And here's another interview with Wang Xu at eurogamer. Oddly, he says the dev team feels guilty about BG&E's original failure, but he says they're doing everything they can to make sure this version is definitive:
From the beginning expectations were set very high: this would not be a quick and dirty port to make a quick buck, but instead a polished HD overhaul that would do justice to the greatness of the original, no matter how much time and resources would be needed.
And it was great to see the entire group mobilised to ensure the IP finally starts to get the consideration it deserves.
Xu also mentions how they hope the game's existing fanbase will help spread the word:
We have a huge asset we didn't have back then – great fans who are very supportive, and are great at explaining the game and sharing their love for it. Also, Beyond Good & Evil has held up very well and, in my opinion, it remains one of the best adventure games on the market.
And altho Michel Ancel is not directly involved, he is giving the team his input on it.

According to GoNintendo, the latest issue of Game Informer has an article on Rayman Origins. In it, Michel Ancel mentions that he has been working on BG&E2 for "a while", and they've taken a little break from it to work on Rayman.
At this point, I think they should change the name to "Beyond Good & Evil Forever."

Despite recent reports of a $74 million dollar loss, internal reorganization, and several cancelled projects, Ubisoft has gone out of its way to reassure us that BG&E2 was not one of the cancelled projects. (Just in case Wildcat might lose any sleep over it. )
I assume Ancel will get back to work on it once Rayman Origins is finished.

According to Joystiq, Ancel and his team have been developing BG&E2 on high-end PC's, and doesn't necessarily want to scale the game down for current console technology. At the same time, it sounds like he hasn't completely shut the door on a PS3/360 release (despite previous comments).

Right out of the blue, you can see a couple of videos featuring concept art and the game engine (including the previously shown chase sequence) here. You might get a little more out of them if you can understand French.
If you have an Xbox 360 and want BG&E HD, today's the day to get it! It's been marked down in the XBox Live Marketplace from 800 Microsoft Points ($10) to a measly 240 MSP ($3)! I know I'll be picking it up.

Michel Ancel once again assures us that BG&E2 is still in active development. He also confidently states that the game will not be coming to Xbox 360 or PS3, but indicates that it will run on whatever future hardware that's capable of running it.
I joked about it earlier in the thread, but this sounds frighteningly like another Duke Nukem Forever scenario. I hope Ancel isn't letting his ego get in the way of smart game development.
Nester the Lark: I've had similar thoughts the past several months. What do I really use social media for? I don't interact a whole lot, so for me, it's more about getting content. "Less about the social, more about the media" as I like to put it.

nocturnal YL: On second thought, maybe I should give Bluesky a try. I was actually considering Mastodon as a replacement of X and didn't really think much of Bluesky since posts are viewable by members only, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

Evie ❤✿: I relate with that and Twitter. I started using it and got addicted to scrolling, retweeting things. Nowadays I come back in short waves, or learning about media like you. Unfortunately it's hard to keep track and Musk doesn't like datascraping.

Evie ❤✿: The other reason I use it is to follow art channels I like, specifically to browse cute art.
Sept 11, 2023 6:12:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I have got a Bluesky account. I'll consider actually posting later. And I haven't even used X for at least a month. There are a few X users I'm interested in re-following (in a general sense) if they have accounts elsewhere.

nocturnal YL: The problem with being completely sucked into Surge Concerto's world is that I can't actually look them up outside of the game, since everything, including some official media, is spoiler. It's the same issue as BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light.

Evie ❤✿: Cool ^^ Sorry to hear that Hope you have fun with the games until you don't have to avoid the spoilers.

Evie ❤✿: I've been fed up with online editors and software which claims to be free but isn't. -_- I've usually joined an image with audio w/Avidemux which actually is open source. Now I just use FFMPEG to do same for less clicking. I'm satisfied this way though. ^^

Evie ❤✿: I think microblogging sounds nice too. I might try it myself one day. ^^ Twitter/X's character limit is restricting, as is the organisation/discovery of tweets. Don't worry about audience, it isn't important tho if u want one I'm sure will get1 eventually.

Evie ❤✿: Funnily enough there is a recent Hatsune Miku/Pokémon collab called Pokémon feat. Hatsune Miku Project Voltage 18 Types 18 Songs where it imagines if Hatsune Miku was a Pokémon Trainer and what Pokémon she'd use.

Nester the Lark: Sony has announced a State of Play for tomorrow after the Direct. Didn't they do this last September, also? EDIT: Yes, they did.
Sept 13, 2023 16:04:08 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Not a bad Direct. I'll post my impressions later.

Nester the Lark: So, I still don't know if NST had anything to do with Mario vs. Donkey Kong on Switch, but plot twist! They *did* develop F-Zero 99.

nocturnal YL: About a quarter done in Ciel nosurge DX (1/3 story, about 1/5 items). Absolutely love the story, but the gameplay is pretty bad. Wouldn't have liked it at all in its original online, real-time-only form.

Nester the Lark: Apparently, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 won the Award of Excellence at TGS.
Sept 21, 2023 11:33:28 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: This is unexpected. His name is almost synonymous with the studio.

nocturnal YL: Surge Concerto (and the overall Ar Tonelico series, from what I know) has deep lore and unfathomable dark stories on top of rather shallow gameplay. It's in some ways a far more extreme version of the BLUE REFLECTION series.
Sept 26, 2023 14:08:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Game design similarities aside, I'm surprised that the same developer behind Atelier can make something like this. Not exactly my cup of tea, but that's an extra layer of appreciation I have for them.
