Monstrous Vita RPG Destiny of Spirits Gets Sociable on 25th March

Posted by Kell Andersen

And it won't cost you a penny

The world of free-to-play gaming may be fraught with danger, but social RPG Destiny of Spirits looks like it could potentially be a diamond in an ocean of zircons. Set to burst onto the Vita on 25th March in North America and 26th March in Europe, the game features a system in which you trade and collect a team of monsters through the magic of the Internet. The catch, however, is that the beasts are region specific, necessitating an unprecedented level of intercontinental cooperation.

Obviously the title will include microtransactions, but the novelty of the concept alone is definitely grabbing our attention. With that said, developer Q Entertainment does have a knack for absurdly addictive puzzlers, so perhaps giving them the keys to your credit card isn't such a great idea. Will you be taking Destiny of Spirits for a spin, or does free-to-play give you the willies? Fulfil your destiny in the comments section below.

I didn't try the beta, but I know it got some negative feedback. Personally, I've been looking forward to it, so I'll definitely be giving it a go.

F2P isn't necessarily a bad thing. But if micro transactions handicap the core game play, and cause player frustration it can make a great game a flash in the pan. Its a slippery slope they walk with F2P games. Hopefully this one gets it right.

I really hope this is what it could be, I will definitely be giving it a go. Despite the negativity I still think it could be huge.

I remember when this was first revealed on SPIKE's pre-E3 coverage.

Geoff was hyping: "World exclusive first look at a brand new Vita game," he said. Everyone waiting in anticipation.

"Take a look at DESTINY - ," everyone losing their minds for about half a second: A PORTABLE DESTINY SPIN OFF! or DESTINY ON VITA!

"- OF SPIRITS." Destiny of Spirits? Trailer plays. Mass disappointment: "it's just some card game or something."

Still, looks like it could be okay, right?
