This time, instead of being DLC or chats to go through, it’s just After Ending story for each character. You have to go there and unlock it. Each character’s Valentine’s costs 20 hourglasses, so it makes a total of 100 hourglasses.
I’ve been saving up for this, cause I knew they’d release something, so I’m nabbing all of them, of course.
One thing to point out is the new artist is in charge of the new sprites and CG’s still. Valentine’s is years after the main game, where they’re married for a few years already and are more mature.
Sadly I can’t say I like the new sprites or the new artist’s art still. I do notice they’ve tried to match the original, but it doesn’t reach the level of the main games artwork.
As an example, the new sprite for Yoosung:
^what Yoosung says, he has no idea how much he changed considering the art just doesn’t match the main sprites one.
I’m still getting all the stories, I’m a bit of a completionist if it’s easy enough. But I’m really sad this is gonna be the artist for all future DLC and extras. We all got into MM because of the original artwork. I can only imagine it’s because the main artist is working on the new game Cheritz is making.
I suspect this artist is the same one that did all the side characters sprites for the main game, and those were not up to the standards of the main cast sprites, at all. Still I hope they improve more, and actually get as beautiful as the main game, because I don’t wanna have to look at slightly uglier versions of characters I’ve come it love ORZ
What about you? Do you like the new artwork or prefer the older? Or maybe you don’t care whichever way? Are you getting this extra/bonus content, or are you going to pass? Tell me all!
