Who thought FF would someday change genre and duke it out with the pure action game of it's genre like Devil May Cry, Astral Chain and Bayonetta

I welcome the change.

Same.

This all sounds very exciting. 



Around the Network

Not hyped for this

Looks like Final Fantasy XV gameplay without the very nice background, worldbulding and modern-world setting. Worse, without the open world so nothing to explore. 

Instead I only see a generic western RPG world

It's like taking the worst thing about FF XV (battles), stripping it of any sort of identity and inserting a linear storyline. 

At least VII:2 is coming I guess 



Pretty good news all around.



 

 

 

 

 

Glad they are not trying the open world again. They are awful at it. I don't know if they go Xenoblade with huge regions or more Dragon Quest XI/Tales of Arise of big but not massive regions. I love the DMC combat.

Um no. XV's combat was ass yes but this is nothing like it. They literally hired the DMCV combat director for this. Far far and above XV's bullshit and FF has been doing the modern shit for far too long. FF was medeveal fantasy setting long before it was cars and modern settings with Limp Bizkit and Stand By me. Many fans including me have been begging Final Fantasy to return to a fantasy setting since post-FFIX. You had 25 fucking years of cars and cell phones in Final Fantasy. Time to a return to form.

European-based medieval setting is generic and boring. Final Fantasy is at its best when they insert anything else. 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13 and 15, all those have truly interesting worlds, because they were unique. There is nothing like the world's of Spira, Ivalice or Gran Pulse, Final Fantasy is incredible because they create immersion building worlds others devs are too afraid to create by themselves, instead resorting in reusing the same place again and again (insert any Dragon Quest here)

Whatever you are begging, it was not what lead Final Fantasy to its greatness. But whatever, I will just wait for them to release a truly immersive world again in the next 8 years or so

That is objectively untrue. 



Euro medieval fantasy FF games were always SE better cup of tea personally. Not helpful that when they went to tackle Fantasy Sci-Fi settings they mostly stumbled there and were the most uninteresting game in the franchise.
