I'm a Nintendo fan and even I blame Nintendo on this one. Specifically, the very bad decision making by Yamauchi in the time of the N64 caused tremendous and irreversible damage with exclusive second and third parties. To lose Square the way he did was a TREMENDOUS failure, in 1995 no one would have dreamed that would EVER be the case. I think what really put me on the "blame Nintendo" side was how Yamauchi was a dick to RPG fans; I mean, I was still a Nintendo fan, I wasn't personally offended, but I saw where the blame clearly was. The thought I had was "Oh, Yamauchi's an asshole, that's why we lost the third parties developing my favourite genre."
On the screenshots, I would LOVE the second one (the one on the right). The semi-realistic character dimensions don't look right to me, so I would prefer models more closely resembling the originals. I wish Square would put these updates through to the official versions.
I think the third one are the battle models (or least something close to them) used for the map instead of the square hands one the original had.
Signature goes here!
