Demons Crest thread!
This game clearly was not as good as the major titles Nintendo had to offer at the time but is still to this day my favorite game on the SNES aside from the Mario games. If it didn't compete with Donkey Kong Country it would most likely be more popular

I loved this game. I wish that there were more games in the series, and I wish that it got discussed more here.

There are more games of this. It's the Gargoyle's Quest series. They aren't as good as Demon's crest tho

I know about the Gargoyle's Quest games. I meant that I wish the series had continued after Demon's Crest.

This series needs a modern revival. Such a cool game.

The music and graphics and general tone of the game are all so cool

How do you figure? The game looks and sounds better than pretty much anything Nintendo had at the time, has fantastic atmosphere, and plays very well. In what way is it clearly not as good?

Demon's Crest is a flat out better game than DKC.

Not OP but the game has a few flaws and unpolished aspects.

It's really rather short, even if you 100% it. I'd like to spend more time exploring that universe.

The spells are clunky and not very useful in most cases. They could've dropped those and added an additional power to each crest instead.

The controls and interface need a little improvement. They could've allowed you to descend smoothly by holding the B button or Down on the D-pad instead of forcing you to double-tap B to make hovering micro-adjustments. They could've done this while still allowing you to tap and release B a single time to stop hovering abruptly.

They also could've let you use the L and R buttons to switch crests and/or talismans. Needing to go to the pause menu every time is awkward.


I criticize because I love. I've played through the game many times. It's a wonderful, gorgeous experience, and I truly hope that we get another installment in some form.

Capcom just announced it for the Virtual Console. Maybe if we buy it millions they will make a sequel r-right?

sorry I'm not buying a shitty digital copy of Demon's Crest even if that would help in making a sequel

This game had a huge impact on my childhood.
Also, I had a friend whose mother made him get rid of the rom because the game looked so evil. lol. Moms...

I agree completely regarding the controls/interface. It's dumb that Mega Man X did these things much more smoothly and came out a year earlier.
