Forums - Gaming Discussion - Final Fantasy XV will have more dynamic playable action, fewer flashy cutscenes

Pre-rendered, non-interactive action sequences are a staple of Final Fantasy, but Final Fantasy XV game director Tetsuya Nomura says much of the type of action which would traditionally be in a cutscene will be gameplay in this new title.

“Since the beginning of 3D graphics, Final Fantasy has largely used pre-rendered movies, but what’s different about this new hardware is that it allows you to direct what has previously been pre-rendered and make it real-time. For this reason, even in considerably dynamic scenes, the player can still control their character,” Nomura said in a promotional video feature and translated by Gematsu.

“The scene we saw at E3 where a Leviathan is rioting through a town, and the main character comes in fighting and flying around in a current of water. Until now this scene would have been completely pre-rendered into a movie by Visual Works (Suare Enix’s film producing team). But now you’ll actually be able to play through it in real-time.”

Boooooo! Flashy cutscenes rule.

CGI cutscenes are great, I don't know why people dislike them.

Yeeh for QTE which makes me miss the story cause I'm concentrating on which button will appear next

Square Enix is running out of money

The cutscenes in Final Fantasy are amazing. When I played Final Fantasy 13 I remember always looking forward to each cutscene hoping to see the next after it.

Eh I dunno if I like this, I love cut scenes.
