Finally! woooo can't wait. If it's not released in 2013 worldwide, then I'm just giving up on them -_-, 2014 will be too late.



All of this, of course, is just my opinion.

Of course they could change tradition... but going by it, the true main problem with this game is that Final Fantasies are usually (almost always) released in the end of the year.

And since Lighting Returns is scheduled for the end of next year... I don't think they will put 2 PS3 FFs against each other. So that leaves end of 2014 (!!??) for this game in japan and Spring 2015 (????!!!!) for the localized version.

Well, I don't think they could be THIS much crazy.

I don't think Lightning Returns has a precise release date does it? It could easily release mid next year. It is an Action game, less RPG like from what I understand. However unlikely, there is still a small chance they could do a blow out early next year. Show off more gameplay than we can handle, give us the full premise of the story, start detailing characters. Then at E3, give us a bit more. Around that time also LR:FFXIII releases. Then Versus Release Late November Holiday. I don't know if SE is dilusional enough to believe Lightning Returns is Holiday Season caliber game, it can only do worse than XIII-2 and that is not very good at all. The best they could do for LR is bundle it with a Versus demo, would be the only way I would get it (Hell, it worked for DQVII PS2).

Not sure what to think about FFXIV, maybe  Q1 or Q2 2014 for PS3/4. For all intents and purposes the releases of FFXIV and Versus could be switched tho. FFXIII released early in the year (US).

Don't give up hope just yet. It's going to be Nomura's Magnum Opus for the FF series. Supposedly he said after this game he no longer wants to work with the FF series. Not sure how believable that is, if the game does really well he will be the star child of SE(as if he already isn't) and be cornholed into that role (much to Toriyama's dismay and my glee).

I don't see how FF can possibly continue without Nomura. Nomura's done every character design, no? Without his artwork, the feel of the game just would not be the same. The success of the FF series as a whole, even beyond FFvs13, depends on Nomura and his work. Although, if what he says is true, I hope FFvs13 is truly the FF we've all waited for, a 'classic' ps1FF/KH combo, with a bit of edge.

Then again, Kojima threatens us all the same, and I don't see him actually stopping his involvement in gaming production.

What i'd like to see:

FFXIV:ARR release date announced (im hoping beta is already started by then).
FF Type-0 ported and enhanced on the 3DS for worldwide release.
FF Versus XIII renamed as FFXV and released multi-platform.
FFXVI teased and confirmed for next gen (Maybe with Wii U already confirmed as one of the systems).

EDIT: I forgot to add: Lightning Returns FFXIII - Cancelled. Releasing a cg movie on dvd for the end of the story (or just leave it like that really).

Everyone wants to forget FFXIII ever existed, and square should do the same for their own good.



At this point I'm hoping it's a PS4 title.

Nomura has systematically been apart of the winning formula for the most popular of FF games. He first came in during FFVI as the monster designer as well as battle designer(or something). He then became lead character designer for FFVII and during their script/story writing team meetings he gave some of the most iconic points of VII's story. He worked on VIII as Character Designer as well. Parasite Eve1-2. 9 wasn't his, and is probaly the lowest selling FF since they jumped to PS brand. He is head of the KH series, SE's 3rd highest bread winner. He was apart of X but not XI-XII. Then of course he has his art in the original XIII an Versus.

FF Versus XIII is described to be the FF game I always hoped for. I cannot stand the colourful nature of VIII and XIII, and much prefer the dark turbulent moods of VI,VII, and sort of X. The story is said to be more serious and tragic, I love tragedy. The gameplay is more action oriented, similar to KH (Which I think is the BEST Action RPG comat system period), Open World to explore, more city landscapes rather than rural village setup, it is almost too good to be true but I want it anyway.

I feel as though this game will suffer the same fate that befalls all games that take so long to be released. It won't match the heightened expectations of the consumer, regardless of how good it is.


.........

..........

.........Are we talking aout the same gagme here? Maybe you have forgotten what we are dealing with here...

As long as it is still a Fantasy Based on Reality, Action oriented combat, teloportation capable, Dark, over all still Nomura's vision I will be happy.

me too XD



FF Versus..Wasn't this announced a few years ago?
