Only problem I'm having with that footage is major screen tearing. Hope they fix that by release.

The screen tearing is caused by the recording software, the actual demo doesn't have those problems. The voices can be changed to Japanese if you prefer in the actual demo :)

Phew... that's good to know.

I'm loving the footage. Especially the end where we zoom from the sea (I reckon where the boat was) through a village and then to the castle on the lake. I was wondering if we were going to get a village area to explore.

Mixed feelings on the voice acting but Gebel is perfect. I really can't see David Hayter doing him now, as was originally planned.

Right lets get the bad out of the way:
- Wooden mouth movement
- Overly "briticised" voices.. *Sigh*
- The voice acting in English is fucking dog shit, it sounds like "The Bloodening" (Simpsons fans will understand)

I would've rathered nice crisply, drawn portraits and elegant text.

Good:
Mostly everything else.

I'm thinking CuoTM looks better at this stage though.

drawn portraits can also be seen as a leap backwards since lots of people are used to animated portraits these days, especially on console.

Neptunia V II had animated portraits with moving mouths, then Cyberdimension's are static and people were like wtf.

the english VAs are fine, not ideal for each taste, but I didnt have a issue with their performance and their tone seemed to fit the characters.
anyways I warned people about storytelling really adds unnecessary cheese to this kind of genre, its better without those things
, but some want some cheesy campy drama to see and listen through. 

besides I think Japanese VA option might be included, so its a nonissue.

COTM still looks like outdated trash compared to ROTN.   

 even ROTN's mouth movement is ok, it could get some polish, but most certainly not terrible like some obscure games out there.   it sure beats soulsborne games that dont have animated mouths at all.

@affinity You previously argued with people that "story" was detrimental, not story-telling (delivery of narrative), there's a big difference.

Secondly, we're in 2018. A game can be compared to a piece of art, or a fine-dining dish. It's made from several elements which are cohesively arranged, they work in conjunction with one another to convey an idea. I'm not saying this to bash your opinion - VA's I do agree are down to personal preference. (Classic example is Arriety, the anime film where one cut is by voice actors from the UK, one is from the US - I personally think the US one sounds better)
There's absolutely nothing wrong, however, with leaving something "off the plate" that doesn't work. The mouth animations are terrible, the character portraits while well-drawn seem to have lost the simple elegance of their previous iterations (looking slightly more towards OOE colours) and have become overly saturated. That's simply my opinion.

I also think that the mouths seem as if some ventriloquist moved them, and their emphasis on the voices, their tones and expressions seem to me somewhat weak and tasteless... sorry but I think that in this game you see a good example of what I mean, its a old game but have very good dialogues... i think  :P

I think drawn portraits might give people good memories of Symphony of the Night, since the dialogue had Ayami's character art for the faces next to the text when they spoke.

Exactly. You don't need overly high production values for moving mouths either, look at Phoenix Wright, how many of those animations and frames were re-used?

Ugh, I've been saying it like with a hard G "Geh-bell" for Gebel.
Now it turns out it's "Jee-bull".  Argh.

Is it because the setting is in a fictional England that's why they used the British accent?
Can we have options to turn it into American accent? lol

So "Jee-bell" was Miriam's friend (from the IGN interview).
