Across the web lately, I've seen a few people criticise the presentation of SCVI's Soul Chronicles Mode due to its visual novel style of telling its story. I was thinking - am I the only one who sort of actually prefers it this way? I feel like the drawn portraits emanate more personality than rendered cutscenes would. Also, there is to take into account that if we had rendered cutscenes, the budget needed for that would lead to a massive cut in story content, which honestly I'd say is pretty substantial currently. Not even accounting for Libra of Souls, Soul Chronicles as it is is the best story mode thus far in a fighting game, IMHO, due to how much screentime and focus each character and their individual arc gets, as well as the typical main story of course. I also wanted to know if I was the only one who felt this way. I mean, I get that NRS story modes get a lot of praise (which I do understand, even though I feel the writing in most of them is awful...), but the characters only get focus in their specific chapters which don't last anywhere near as long as the Soul Chronicles of an individual character in this game. Also, what's extremely significant to me is that EVERY character has their canon arc shown to us in quite a bit of detail here - in NRS story modes, around maybe 40% of the roster or more are reduced to opponent bait. So yeah, kinda two points I made here that ended in a ramble...anyway, yeah, just wanted to know if I was the only one who felt this way and if anyone else has another perspective on the topic.
