Nintendo Everything: "A recent issue of Famitsu highlighted the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy. We’ve included the full scan set from the magazine in the gallery above."
For being about the 25th Anniversary of the series as a whole, I sure do see a lot of Final Fantasy VII.
Yeah was thinking the same haha, this should be called "final fantasy 7's 15 year anniversary" famitsu special :P Though it was cool to see some production sketches compared to the final product, as well as the timeline near the start that gave a nice view of the series graphical improvements over the years. IMO the series has gone so far from everything I loved about it this generation, I keep hoping on Versus 13 to come out and restore my faith but it feels like that games never going to be released.
Even if it does get released, Versus looks to go in a new direction rather than recapture the classic FF spirit. I can live with that, but it would be great to have a new turn-based FF that combined the combat of, say, FFX with the exploration of FFVI. Unfortunately, Square seems to think we care more about pretty CG scenes...
I like seeing the timeline... it takes me back. I rented Final Fantasy (NES) for 2 weeks straight when I was a kid and beat it. Then I mowed lawns during the summer so I could buy it. I've played just about every FF game since then (exception XI and XIV), and while there's been some bumps along the way, it's still one of my most beloved franchises ever. I hope Vs gives us something great, because XIII was not a Final Fantasy game as far as I'm concerned, but XIII-2 wasn't too bad (still not great).
25 years... I remember playing the first one. *feels old*
FF came out shortly afetr I was born, happy 25th anniversary, me! :D
Well, VII was a high point for the series.
So has no one translated these scans yet?
im really hoping for a FF compilation in HD with every final fantasy
I wish they'd release a Dissidia on PS3
I would like it on 3DS. This game would really benefit from 3D depth.
I'd like to see an old style ff game, like 5 and 6 remade so that it plays like the ff4 remake they did on the DS, but for the 3DS. That was an awesome remake, and it played like a PS1 era FF game, which in my opinion were the best.
@nerdmaster you do really play the 3DS with the 3D on??? i mean thats the whole point of the handle but i cannot play any of the games on 3D it look horrible IMO.
it's Final Fantasy V 20th Anniversary. I want a remake so badly of that game.
The remaining 'oldies' need a remake like they did for FF4 (Man the complete collection was awesome)
I just want a Final Fantasy game that will let me control all of my squad. Turn-based á la FFX.
Did you play Lost Odyssey? That's pretty much the FF game of this generation.
I'll sound like such a fanboy but Lost Odyssey's not Final Fantasy :( Speaking of FFX where's the HD/Remake of it :)?
Lost Odyssey was a great game. Wish it was released to a wider audience, then the game coulda done well enough to warrant a proper sequel
lost odyssey was AMAZING. i wish they would put it on the ps3 too.
Lost oddesey or any mistwalker game wil never grace the ps3 the company has publicly stated many times that they had a falling out with Sony and do not want there games on the platform. I guess money talks so I should say never but I'm just quoting what the godfather of final fantsy has stated many times about Sony. As far as vs's goes I hope it does stay on the ps3 so when it finally does come out and bombs I won't have to here how ms has ruined final fantasy when its clearly square that has done this to themselves. There has been a ton of rpgs this gen on 360 and someon ps3 that kill final fantasy anyways and Lost Oddesey is one of them and I'm sure last story will be great as well and I would love to see a 360 port of that game since mistwalker favors ms as a platform over he ps3.
***"As far as vs's goes I hope it does stay on the ps3 so when it finally does come out and bombs I won't have to here how ms has ruined final fantasy when its clearly square that has done this to themselves."*** Wait... is your reasoning for wanting VS to stay on the PS3 is because you expect it to be a bad game or do you just don't want people blaming your console of choice as the reason why VS is bad or is it both... hmmm based off of your comment history the answer is clear... Edit: FYI nobody is saying that MS is responsible for ruining Final Fantasy. All the SquareSoft > Square Enix comments and all the there hasn't been a good FF games since FF10 comments makes that absolutely clear...
Not surprisingly, they're looking into bringing Final Fantasy Versus XIII and FINAL FANTASY 7 to the Xbox 360
Keep dreaming ~ Hopefully you will never smell any FF titles anymore on Your Forgotten Box !
You do understand that Final Fantasy VII cannot be produced on any other platform but Sony's platforms right?.... Sony owns the publishing rights in America and Europe so that is why you will never see it on any other platforms that aren't PlayStation.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Eid... Whatever you say buddy :)
I cant wait for 10 on the VITA !!!
Is 8 on it? I know 7 is really popular, but 8 has a special place in my heart.
where have you been?....
FFX was the beginning of the end for the series. they changed it completely and dropped everything that made it what it was.No more open map, a true level system, and armor/weapons that you actually saved up for. Unfortunately i think remaking it is a huge let down seeing as most fans would much rather any of I-IX well before X
Is that Nomura in the 7th page/picture of the magazine? O_o You know he was asked about Versus XIII. He is pretty much asked about the game every time he does an interview, even when its for a different game. Nomura: "So yeah Birth by Sleep will be a great Kingdom Hearts title." Interviewer: "That's fantastic, so where is Final Fantasy Versus XIII?" *Square PR glares at Nomura. One PR person puts his finger over his own lips, signaling to Nomura to not speak* Nomura: "We'll talk about it soon" *One Year Later* Nomura: "So yeah the 3rd Birthday will be a great game." Interviewer: "Where is Final Fantasy Versus XIII?" *Square PR glares at Nomura.* Nomura: "*Dry laugh* Soon, soon" *One Year Later* Nomura: "So yeah Kingdom Hearts 3D is going to be--" Interviewer: "Where the flying *kupo* is Final Fantasy Versus XIII?" *Square PR glares at Nomura.* Nomura: "*Dry laugh* Soon I promise. (wispers to self "when are they going to let me talk about my game. These guys have forbidden me to talk about my game for like five years now.")"
They talked about it more than you actually think guy http://www.finalfantasy-fxn...
They need to make FF XIV free2play ;)
@TopDudeMan yeah i agree remake 5 and 6 just don't make the only diffculty setting be hardcore mode like 4 on ds did they can still have hardcore mode but just let the default difficulty be the difficulty 5 and 6 had on gba(i say gba because it's the only version of 5 i played 6 can use the gba or the snes version)
