FF is probably the only game franchise out there that can still see subtle remnants of old combat elements. While not exactly alike, but subtle. Only true fans can see they actually put in effort to incorporate these. To FF Dev: Kudos to sticking to tradition, don't let whiners influence you.
The only Final Fantasy game that is worth playing and hopefully better then all the other disaresters. This is it's last chance to redeem itself.
Been waiting for this game since I was in junior high school, I am now in my 3rd year of college. Holy ****ing ****.
I need the older FF fans who have a problem with this game to kindly stop bashing it. It's been in development for to long. Support this for now. When it's finished kindly ask square to go back to traditional JRPGs.
Personally I'd like it if FF always had a "Versus" game within there mainstream games. Like a "Final Fantasy XVI" and a "Final Fantasy Versus XVI". That way we get the best of both worlds. It's probably impractical, but I can dream.
Final Fantasy XV will be the last sadly people, I am a physic and after this it is going to fail in sales and Square-Enix rename the final fantasy series to something new. RIP FF.
Cant wait to play this game and hear more news about it in the future dates. For all the whiners down below me STFU and leave already nobody is keeping you here its fans like you that ruin franchises go play your dumb shooters or your whatever you water cooler pricks do nowadays,
It's funny that people write "we want". I would also like turn based a la FFX but I can just as easily play like this. Yummy!
So many negative comments; I wonder how many of u actually liked Kingdom Hearts... coz to me the battle system looks a lot like KH.. which is also one of SE's game
I'm still waiting for any sort of FF Tactics news. Whether it's a sequel or a new story set in that same realm of Ivalice. I just need someone at SE to mention something about where they might or might not go with for the series. Oh and I also want to know when War of the Lions will be released on Android
Ok square enix your trying way too hard...the franchise is called final fantasy not future fantasy nobody liked that crap in 13 so nobody will like it in 15 I mean really why don't you do another tactics advance game(yes I know both games were for the Game Boy advance),make next gen remakes of 6,7 and 9 your already remaking 10 in HD or hell make a fighting game that's not dissidia(god that game was horrendous with all that flying crap)make it more like Injustice,Soulcalibur Guilty gear or even the Marvel versus Capcom series but in your own unique way and you'll make a killing literally.
It would be nice if you could actually release a PC version, just a basic port will do, don't even have to support keyboard. Or are you going to make me wait 6 years till an emulator comes out and then play? just like ps3/x360 now.
SE, stop making incredibly non-tangible abstract plot lines. Why do the characters in your games lately never mention things happening around them? They always constantly substitute everything with the words Fate, Destiny, Protect, and Fight FFS. Why don't you actually have your characters actually BE characters instead of transits for the plot points of an abstract story? No one could possibly care about some character who's only purpose is to try to act cool or spout lines that try to sound important but don't actually say a GD thing!
For instance: have the characters actually talk in depth about a plan (and everything involved) to rescue someone as opposed to using a lazy line of dialogue like "I'm going to save this person from his/her fate" and not actually having a plan or discussing said plan. Other things: Have characters notice things and have opinions and conversations about little things. They're supposed to be people, right? People don't only talk about the big things happening around them, they will talk about their favorite foods, their hobbies, politics, etc.
Most importantly, for a VAST majority of the time, the characters should be bickering with
each other in pretty humorous ways and talking about the smaller things. At least do it half the time; the major plot points can still be there, but don't over-dramatize them.
There's also a lack of mystery lately in your games, SE. Everybody shouldn't know everything about everything around them. The plot should evolve as time goes on, and new things constantly come to life.
This isn't asking anything more than what Squaresoft was able to do. So get to it.
it wouldn't hurt if they placed the story in a pure sword and sorcery fantasy setting instead of a futuristic one.
It might be time for SE to place these titles under a new IP. Not much info is released yet, but this game looks more like DMC than any FF I've ever played. FF seems nothing like it used to be!
They've release FF13 and are coming up on a third direct-sequel to that game. This game was supposed to be released with FF13, and yet, they still don't have a release date.
In other words: they need to stop churning out FF13 sequels and finish this game off. Or just cancell it once-and-for-all.
Square Enix NEEDS and I mean NEEDS to release more information than that. It is nothing new only small parts were pretty much some screenshots I already saw. I hope thy will release new info soon!
@kye-mc If they screw up once more then yeah it's done for. I amazed kind of that this series has survived long enough from a series of bad games.
@Alucard1475 You're obviously not a fan of the series. LOL
I admit that the Paradigm system was way too automatic, but the older turn-based games were f*cking excellent. It's what made them Final Fantasy. People are too "instant gratification" these days and that's what has killed the turn-based systems.
@Alucard1475 hell no
@KatraWith a big length adventure (maybe they thought) the game cold be boring with a turn based. Turn Based is my prefered machanic of battle in Final Fantasy (specially XII), but you have to understand the evolution of the series.
@Katra no good sir you are not :)
@Katra I liked it in some cases but I wouldn't want it in every game. Granted, the older FF games had the ATB system, it wasn't turn based.
@PrinnyDood00 What?! Thats why dissidia was awesome, because it wasn't like all the other fighting games out there. They did make it in their own unique way. There hasn't been another fighting game like it, that i am aware of, atleast. Just saying. For a portable game I thought it was amazing. But i agree with you in that, yeah, FFXIII was a crap-tastic walk down a pretty hallway; and that they need another FF tactics game. That was the best.
@PrinnyDood00 Nobody, eh? Speak for yourself. I know plenty of people (myself included) that can't wait for this and think it looks amazing so far. I'll definitely take it over a garbage fighting game.
@swyg I didn't think I would when I started reading, but I actually agreed with you.
@swyg So, you want an old Bioware game? It sounds like you're describing Baldur's Gate, KotOR, and Dragon Age.
@swyg Wow, a very sensible comment.
@bongsyas_23 Ah... that would have been a lot better.
Torch-lit villages, misty forests, red and blue light on the trees from the Firaga and Blizzaga in realtime...
@Scorpion1813 See but the FFXIII sequels are basically just copies of one another, with added dialog, and costumes....oh ya, and different colored enemies!!! By tweaking just a few things, they are able to resell the same game, three times. This is how they are recouping the major losses from such a disappointing main entry in the Final Fantasy series, XIII. So there's no hope of seeing XV release date until the make their money back and then some. Hoping this third lightning game will finally tip the scales, so we can get XV, but since no release date has been given, we may yet see something like FFXIII-3/2!!!
@WheelerJared And hopefully a story with a happy ending, and no fucking part 1, 2,3.
@Ripper_TV Exactly what I was thinking. The combat scenes are the same, most of the rest we've all seen before as well.
@UofODucks8 you know I didn't just say fighting games...I also said remakes of 6,7 and 9 or a tactics game at least I'm giving ideas...care to share some of YOUR ideas.
@EquinoxVespers i think this might be a concept for a future final fantasy
