TGH Writes: "It seems an image that has been circling around the internet which was first thought to be some sort of lame joke, turns out may be true after all."

Seems legit, but also seems strange that they'd insert a sequel to XII so long after its release. Granted they did the same thing for Final Fantasy VII and its revival period.

I give up on trying Square. At this point I just dont care what Wada does with your company anymore. You are producing things people arent asking for. As a matter of fact fans ask you not to do something like this and you do it anyways.

Fan: I want Versus XII
Square: Okay then you'll love XIII-2
Fan: Huh?

Fan: The fans want a Final Fantasy VII remake.
Square: Then you'll be happy to hear that we are remaking Final Fantasy X and IV (for the 9th time).
Fan: That's not what we asked.

Fan: Square we dont care about any of your current projects anymore. Just move on and make XV so we dont have to remember the last few bad FF.
Square: How conveniant! We are proud to announce that we are making a sequel to Final Fantasy XII!
Fan: MOTHERFUC*****!!!!!!!!!!

Bubs, that made the laugh, sadly it's true though...

FFXII is my favorite FF game of all time.I played at least 200 hours before retiring the game for good.However I agree with you,no one is asking for a sequel.

FFXII had a great ending which does not need any more continuing stories.That FFXII Revenant Wings game did not count.

KeybladeMaster1915d ago

LMAO it's funny because sadly its true.

synchroscheme1915d ago (Edited 1915d ago )

Fan: We'd really like a Final Fantasy XII sequel. ;)
Square: Then we're pleased to announce...ah, I see what you did there. Too bad, FFXII sequel it is then.
Fan: :(

While I can't call it my favourite FF of all time, it was my favourite PS2 Final Fantasy. I won't go into the reasons I didn't care so much for FFX, or like I need to say anything about X2. FF12 was like Final Fantasy Tactics (one of my favourite games of all time) and laid out like a standard RPG; it was grand. I played it for over 150 hours and I honestly have no desire for a sequel. Personally, I wouldn't mind an HD remake, but I don't think the game needs a sequel. Literally, the only 2 S-E games I've bought this entire generation are Nier and Star Ocean 4. And neither of them were developed by S-E.

VileAndVicious1915d ago

lol actaully liked XII it was one of my most favorite in the series and Im kind of excited about this news. Granted...where the hell is my Versus its almost been a decade lol

Outside_ofthe_Box1915d ago

Well this really does show what Square Enix is all about. The FF13 defenders where all lovey dovey with Square when 13-2 got announced. I bet they are changing their tune now.

I actually liked 12. I don't mind a FF12-2, but I really want FFV13 to come out since it was announced FIRST!!!

BUT we all know that new titles take precedence right and therefore VS13 will never get released since technically it's an "old" title now lol?

banjadude1915d ago

LOL, it's so true... oh my dear God!

You are a genius, and the voice of a frustrated audience. I award you with bubbles.

MaxXAttaxX1915d ago

I've been curious about the rumored FF12 sequel that got cancelled a while back.
Let's hope this sequel is as much an RPG as FF12 was (and nothing like sh*t FF13).

Just like FF4 The After Years (a sequel no one thought of asking) was a sequel 17 years after the original and turned out pretty good.

Also, not everyone cares for a FF7 remake. I'd like to see a a remake of FF4, 6 or 9 in full 3D with current gen(or next-gen) graphics).

P.S. FF4 was only remade twice. Complete Edition and DS version. Not 9 times.

kingdavid1915d ago (Edited 1915d ago )

Dont forget Dragon Quest X.

Oh yay, new dragon quest announced.

Oh, theyve turned it into a subscription based MMO. Who the fk asked for this? >:(

Kos-Mos1915d ago

You`re not worthy of talking about Final Fantasy Xii.

Hisiru1915d ago

Where are you Squaresoft? :(

Styxoric1915d ago

True, and very, very sad.

FinaLXiii1915d ago

oh come on FF12 its a good game.

Blastoise1915d ago

Go on then, take a bubble. You deserve it

Duoma1915d ago (Edited 1915d ago )

I agree with psycho ninjas comment...although funny its right on spot.

Its square's attitude towards what fans want which makes me just wish they go belly up

RurouniKaze1914d ago

you better not be hating on FFX.

I am VERY Happy that theyre remaking it.

And I am sure almost everyone who played that
game is very happy as well.

And im sure that the people that will now have the oppertunity to play the FFX which many argue to be better than FFVII will be happy as well.

Yeah Square Enix sucks now but still , hating on a FFX remake is petty.

slayorofgods1914d ago

I may be the only one on here to say this. But Im excited for a sequel to FF12..

It's a much better way / style for square to tap into the action wrpg feel that they want to tap into. FF12 was action orientated and had the big open world to explore. but it also contained a very strategic battle system to make the game play and leveling system feel deep (something wrpg's lack).

I know FF12 has gotten its share of hate, but I think it is one of the best in the series. This is a much better direction then FF13 to try to capture some of the wrpg market.

I may get piled with disagree's but I like this decision by SE. (and that isn't something I have said often this generation).

crxss1914d ago

i haven't really enjoyed a final fantasy game since 2001 when FFX came out. 12 was meh, 13 was a disappointment, haven't dared touched 14, and still waiting on versusXIII (which will hopefully own).

SE you have disappointed for more than a decade... really?!

bangoskank1914d ago

FF XII is also one of my favorite installments in the series. For it's time everything about it from graphics to gameplay were excellent. The mob hunts and Esper hunts were especially addicting. I'd love to see a true sequel but am sure that without Matsuno involved it will end up sucking.

FFXII was my favorite PS2 era FF and I really hope that if this is true it plays in a similar fashion and retains all the things that made FFXII so good back then.

I always thought it was a shame that FFXII was so hated back when it was released but it seems that as time went on more and more people came around to liking it(or the people who were so vocal about hating it slowly just stopped talking) Either way I hope they reveal this in full at E3 and I hope it will be as good as FFXII was.

PshycoNinja1915d ago (Edited 1915d ago )

I just want them to finish the one game they announced 6 years ago!!! Is that too much to ask? I just want them to finish one thing before they move on to 10 other projects.

Just put everyone on Versus XIII. Release it. Then split the teams back up to work on their respective projects.

Dasteru1915d ago

FFXII was my favorite PS2 FF also.

From what i have seen there are 3 main reasons why alot of people didn't like it.

1: Political nature of the story

2: Didn't like the combat system at first sight and gave up on the game after less than a couple hours.

3: Lacked the intelligence to figure out the Gambit system, blamed the entire game for their own stupidity.

paybackprahl1915d ago


You're missing the 4th (most important) reason, one that also applies to hardcore FF fans like myself.

XII was boring as hell.

Ult iMate1915d ago

Make a sequel to a FF XII without Yasumi Matsuno? Good luck with that. Matsuno was my personal favourite JRPG-maker.

I'd love to see a "complete" FFXII. You know, one where they actually have the whole story in the game, so that the you don't play for tens of hours without any dialog. Aside from Balthier and Basch (and Asche, I suppose) the cast was filled with non-entities. It sucked that FFXII's story was so half-assed, especially considering how absolutely brilliant the rest of the game was.

But, in all seriousness, I don't forsee there EVER being any new FFXII stuff, outside of maybe an HD port for PS3/Vita.

If there is a sequel, though, odds are it'll be released worldwide before Versus.

Ult iMate1915d ago

Vita-version of FF XII would be sweet.
But the sequel of the game without the creator of XII seems questionable.

Canary1915d ago

My memory is a bit hazy, but as I recall, the chief reason for FFXII's butchered narrative and empty characters (as well as the obscenely long development time) was that the project leads switched half-way through.

So, in a sense, FFXII was a game without the creator of FXII to begin with.

Ranma11915d ago (Edited 1915d ago )

--this needs to be said aloud--


why did they have to merge they have become a joke. is it a coincidence that they merged on april fools day?
