    Default 3D Dot Game Heroes loading screen homages (lots of pics)

    I need help identifying these last loading screens in 3DDGH on the PS3. Figured this would work better here than in Modern Gaming since each screen is a tribute to the box art of a Famicom or Super Famicom game.

    Does anyone recognize any of these?

    Also, just for the hell of it, here's some that I actually know:

    You can look at every pic I took of them, with corresponding box art, here:

    Bahamut Lagoon! I should've known. I think every major Square and Enix release is covered. Even a few non- RPGs are covered too. Only thing I know for sure is that none of them are Nintendo titles. Not even Zelda.

















    My favorite, by far:

    Wow, this is amazing! I never would have picked up on this.

    Can you guys tell me, what are the Enix and Namcot games listed in this last post above me? I don't recognize those, but the covers are intriguing.

    The only Namcot game I recognize is Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei 2. Its the one with the three demons and magic circle.

    Hmmm, I never knew Namco was involved with that series. Too bad I'm pretty sure it would be unplayable for me since I don't understand Japanese.

    Did you know that they started it? Even more interesting though, is that Wolfteam developed the series until Atlus took over with Shin Megami Tensei on the PC-Engine and Super Famicom. Wolfteam started the Tales series and later split into Tri-Ace and Tales Studio respectively. Cool story, isn't it?
    In Heaven, everything is fine.

    Kyle, good looking out on the Tactics Ogre. I never thought to search for those.

    The Enix game is Portopia Renzoku Satsujin Jiken (Portopia Murder Case) It was a PC game at first but got a Famicom port in 1985.

    I was suprised there weren't more MegaTen homages besides the one pictured and this one:

    Not to derail, but this is why I love digital press! I'm actually ashamed that I didn't already know that, but I don't see how I could considering the U.S. Only got any exposure to this series a few years ago.

Though after realizing two Final Fantasy ones were in there, I would have probably got others.
