New gameplay trailer for Final Fantasy XV showing party play and possible destructible environments.
THIS LOOKS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE
One of the best multiplats at E3 !! edit: come to think of it, if it would have been a PS3 exclusive it would have looked nothing like this. Its actually a good thing they are bringing it to both Xbox One and PS4.
A deadly cool game, gratz SE! Another incredible game came out of nowhere : http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I haven't seen one bad comment...so why all the disagrees for EVERYONE??? Well the game looks amazing BTW. I love turn based but I can overlook that because this action styled gameplay looks amazing.
Damn I miss the good old turn base systems and good summons. that's what final fantasy is about. I don't like the look of button smashing rpg. I hope ff16 get turn base.
Am I the only old skool FF fan who was left disgusted with this? This game isn't a JRPG, it's a slasher.. looks more like DMC than it does the FF games I grew up loving. @shoddy.. thank you, someone finally seeing sense. All these comments using fancy buzz words with capital letters, if I didn't know better,I'd say Square are learning some PR tricks from Microsoft.
^^^ This is the direction FF needs to go. Turn Based games are outdated. Sure there have been great turn based games this gen, but none match the graphical beauty that Final Fantasy strives for. It would totally kill immersion to have a separate battle screen with turn based combat. Real Time battle-Kingdom Hearts/FF12 style is the way Final Fantasy needs to go. Final Fantasy is back! Good job Nomura!
@Outside_ofthe_Box No its not. I couldnt care less about graphical beauty. XIII/XIII-2 were beatiful games... so what? @shoddy and @aiBreeze you guys are not alone. im sure there are quite a bit of fans like ourselves that can look past the pretty visials and realize this isnt a FF game
Button smashing is action rpg. the true beauty if final fantasy is just rpg wich need tactic like blind, slow, or fuk up your enemies somehow then finish them off with summon and limited break. That how I like it. button smash is for simple mind player just try to hit the button as fast as possible hoping to make the most damage. Final fantasy characters should be more unique not just human but mix race. I hope ff16 won't become a shoota.
Pfff Final Fantasy was never tactical. If you were stupid sure it might seem like it is tactical.
This gameplay reminds me of the action sequences from advent children. And to all the people upset with the exclusion of turn base gameplay I got a feeling square is planning on making more games for XV with more traditional controls.
I have to agree with a lot of the people that this doesn't look to play like a main title final fantasy game. Final fantasy games had definite styles to it's battle system. They were fairly simple, yet there was always strategy to them provided by the turn based system. FFXIII deviated from that, and put more importance into the paradigm system, but one of it's number one complaints was that mostly all you did was press X the whole time. Now this looks to be a bit more involved, and I do like the battle style, but I feel re-branding this into FFXV isn't proper. There is nothing in the battle system that I saw that resembles anything from prior FF games. It does look more involved than hank n' slash, and there's nothing wrong with that for a spin-off/secondary FF title. But this is an ACTION JRPG, not a CLASSIC JRPG that moves that genre forward, which is something that FF has almost always done, sometimes in a good way, sometimes in a questionable way. It'll probably be a good game though, and it does look like fun, and has incredible graphics. But a main series FF game it is not.
@ shoddy + bubble No Idea why you have so many Disagrees, and those who disagreed should be ashamed of themselves, I Miss the old ways of Final Fantasy to, That was truly epic times. I Know SE is trying to do action RPG, but they shouldn't at the expense of the Final Fantasy name. Name it something else.
@waltercros I think the disagrees are obvious.. just look at all the shills in here with their capital letter buzzwords.
Ok ... I've just seen the video and i'm pretty goddamned souped! They didnt even show us the Magic spells and I'm blown away, WAIT TIL WE SEE THE MAGIC, I bet they're making us wait to see a spell other than Fire and Sword Shield :D Edit: Whether it's turn based or not, the geniuses behind this game, the TEAM, is fantastic. They've wowed us before, and they're going to again. Nomura and is team are going to hit a grand slam with this one. The voice acting sounds amazing in Japanese, I hope to be able to play in Japanese with subtitles.
Shpold be leading on ps4. More powerful anyway.
looks like monster hunter...im interested
@dragonrage I completely agree. While I do agree this game looks and probably will be fun to play. This IS NOT a FF game. Turn based games are not dying. There are plenty of great turn based JRPG's that have come out in the last 5 years that are simply astounding. I always like to throw out Radiant Historia lately, because that was probably one of the best DS games I have ever played. You're crazy to think the original JRPG is dead. That being said I'd really like to bring my own opinion on this, because I talk about it with my hardcore RPG friends too. How does Square Enix live with themselves? They use to pride themselves so hard on what they do, but this is seriously a joke. Versus XIII got announced at THE SAME time as XIII and now they change the name and move it to another platform? 7 years for this? It's all you sad fans who buy anything because it "looks pretty" that really make me sick. FFXIII and FFXIII-2 were a joke, with the most unforgettable characters and laughable character depth. It's seriously sad the direction this company has gone.
I can't blame the people that wished this was turn based. I'm one of them. A turn based RPG would have insured I bought a ps4 on day one. This seems more like a devil may cry with final fantasy characters to me. I know the old and new Square enix just a couple months ago said they will return to their roots. I didn't expect they could do it this fast so I will not judge the new President for this. @Outside_ofthe_Box your all inside the box. Case in point, you said turn based are outdated. That is a bad assumption, all inside the assumption box. First came pen and paper. Second came action RPG'. Third came turn based rpg's (which make them newer the action rpgs). Fourth came strategy RPG's. fifth came delayed turn based rpg's also called active time battle (most likely for marketing reasons). America only has 5% of the world populations, and are one of the few places that people prefer action rpg over thinking (I mean turn based). Even in Japan when for a few years (not this one or last) the overall country got smaller. But the JRPG market got bigger!!!!! Meaning more and more people are playing less of the other games and more of the jrpg turn based. In other countries (save USA) turn based have grown a lot. this is not the way rpg's need to go! If that was the case everyone would make a rpg that has gameplay that reminds you of devil may cry. square has been doing action rpg's since ffx and have been going down since also!!! While all the other RPG companies in japan have gotten bigger without merging!!! They need to get back at it. mean while the Japanese games market only grew 1.2% but squares game share continue to slide. As they make non rpg games and half western rpg games. the other Japanese companies have grown by leaps and bounds. If you have been looking at magicbox.com for the last few years you would notice that it went from 16% of the top 50 games being jrpg's to over 40% of the top 50 game sales leaders being jrpg's week by week!!! That shows that Sqaure was dead set on trying to make people like action rpg over turn based (even though action rpgs are the oldest). Do you think ffxvi will be turn based? I hope so come on nis/gust!!! port the real JRPG's that are not ashamed to be jrpg's to the US of A! PLease?!!! by the way guys there is a new rpg out called atelier Ayesha it is awesome youtube it see the 14+ gameplay demos of it. Actual turn based this is just early game stuff so it is nice on the battles from the start.
for the people that don't like the action based gameplay i don't really understand. sure i love ff10 just as much as the next guy, or ff7 for that matter but i would be lying if i said i would rather the turn based gameplay more than real time fighting. i hate the fact that i just have to stand there and let somebodies attack hit me when i clearly see it coming and can move. that's why i love rpg's like kingdom hearts so much because it got away from that turn based gameplay. sure with turn based you get that time to pick out your moves and so on, but it also takes away from immersion because you're sitting there picking out attacks while everyone is just standing there. you cannot tell me what you see in this video looks less fun then turn based.

@bigrob904 you just proved you DONT like ffVII as the next guy! Just like American review media you say things like; i hate, wait, just stand there!!! But then you speak glowing of the opposite action rpg which means you like twitch game play, and the turn based is cerebral gameplay! They are exact opposites one is for reflex action based, and one is for short/medium/ long term thinking and resource managing! Two different kind of super heros: Batman outsmart-hulk smash. This game is HULK SMASH THINGS!
@indysurfn i in fact love that game, as a matter of fact i bought it off the ps store to play it on my ps3 because it's a good game. you miss understand, it's not that i dislike turn based because it allows me to think about my attacks because truthfully you can do that with real time gameplay. people are under the impression that action rpg means hack and slash, no, thats God of War(which i also love). if you think about it, it's very stupid that your character's are just standing there looking at the enemy doing nothing waiting for you to finally decide what you want. it takes more skill to do it in real time. kingdom hearts for example you have to make sure not to get hit while also selecting the right spell you want. i'm not saying one is necessarily better than the other, but look at that trailer than at a turn based game. i feel it speaks for itself.
hopefully the fighting will be more reminiscent of KH style. It wasn't truly button mashing but neither was it turn based exactly. I can get behind that.
Nooooooooo this looks absolutely amazing I think is they was too remake ff7 use this type of game play for it
That would make it...not FF7...
'True' FF game or not...did this just bitch slap Bayonetta, or did I imagine it?!
Nooo this didnt bitch bayonetta did u see bayonetta 2 thats amazing
Gameplay amazingly good but idk if its releasing on the ps4/xb1 then I sort of would've thought the graphics look better than it is. Seems like this game shouldve still been on PS3 and not on next-gen consoles. Im still dissapointed that it never made it considering it was one of the reasons I bought a ps3.
There's an amazing Gaf thread on what this means for the gameplay system. It seems like yes, there's magic, the menu changes when you use it. You can equip a ton of weapons and use them in Linkform, including duplicates. I just... this looks like what a Crisis Core 2 should be, and I couldn't be happier.
I liked CC too but this is FF15, so it should be traditional.
wheres the blood gone? Edit: I should qualify that by saying that I don't necessary want blood but I remember an earlier trailer for this game having blood in it. I think that was when this game was targeting maturer audiences.
Is this still turn based? It is really hard to tell. I was never a fan of turn based games, but this looks absolutely amazing.
Are you blind or retarded?
BUY "Final Fantasy Tactics S" millions of times to make "Final Fantasy 16" a TURN-BASED RPG !!!
Damn Hadoukameha, no need to be an asshole. Bubbled you down for personal attack. I was just asking an honest question. I am just not a fan of turn based games. Yes there is strategy there, but it is boring as hell to me. This game looks great and at certain points in that video it did look like it was turn based. For instance, when the guy was at the top of the stairs with the shield with all the military guys shooting at him, it looked like it was their turn, then he took a turn after they were done shooting. It might be seamless turn based as in you do not have to bring up a menu if you don't want to. Sorry for asking a legitimate question sheesh. I don't follow FF stuff as I was never a fan of the series or any JRPG for that matter. I love RPG's just not a fan of overly feminine male characters.
Wow. This looks incredible!!!!!!
I FORGIVE YOU SQUARE
brb guys, i'm going into cryosleep and waking up on release day.
Just make sure you don't wake up 500 years later to fight the atheist league, alliance and unions :)
This, metal gear solid 5, infamous second son, killzone, and destiny are the best looking games ive seen thus far. They are really incredible.
Don't forget : The Division The Order 1886
GAME OF THE SHOW BY A LONG SHOT
I can sense a lot of Lightinng Pussy fans disagreeing with Us. U mad FF 13 Die Hard Fangirls? These is million times better than Your So called ff 13.
More??!! Oh my God this game looks good! ALSO, THIS GAME LOOKS LIKE THE BEST GAME OF ALL TIME. EDIT: Guy in the comments saying the graphics are "underwhelming"
OMG...that was awesome! It looks frigging CGI It seems like you're too overpowered with all that teleporting going on?
Just watched Noctis parry blows from an Iron Giant. Day made.
SPREAD THE WORD OF THIS AWESOME FOOTAGE!!
How much are Square paying you?
Anyone else think the main protagonist looks an awful lot like Sasuke from Naruto?
He DID high five that other guy so he has a sense of humor and not a total emo f****t though...
sasuke is awesome noctis is awesome go watch some west crap cartoons then... the worlds knows east animes are the best worldwide deal with it. not our fault if u were born ugly and hating on beautiful things
not our fault that you are a mentally substandard human being
wtf, crap west cartoons,lol yes, lemme tell you how poorly proportion characters standing their with their mouths moving is the best of the best, anime is a joke in the animation world
yes but noct has been around since 06. Nomura copied naruto and the narito copied nomura for part 2 sasikes redesign
ok that water scene was freaking epic! great combat.
Mindblown gameplay. Thanks for the share.
My God, what have we just seen. That looked epic.
Incredible. Battle system looks like so much fun
Ladies and gentlemen, true next gen gameplay right here!
If this was still ps4 exclusive that would of been the end of xbox one... Xbox one, you got very lucky indeed!
they narrowly escaped a bullet
We have got some major disagree trolls in here. What the hell? This looks absolutely stunning. Everything i have seen has looks beautiful.
I cant speak for everyone that doesnt agree with you but looking past the awesome tech, Im not impressed by the gameplay. As an action game, it looks too repetitive. I want FF to return to its roots. I want strategic combat. I want full control over my party members.
Did you not know this game was and always has been an action RPG?
Yes i knew. But theres 1 thing this game wasnt until now. And that is a main entry in the series. This was supossed to be a spin-off so i didnt really mind the fact that it wasnt the game i was hoping for. FF has spin-offs across all sorts of genres, from strategy games to third person shooters. However with this game turning into FFXV, it means the new standard for the series is an action game.
@dragonrage00 - You know what else is a main entry into the Final Fantasy series? 11 and 14... They're online only. I definitely consider this more of a main entry than those two.
ye,I agree with you there,I really love the turn based combat in FF games,for example killing penance in ffx is a major achievement and the strategy for killing him big and it would be impossible to do so with an action rpg like vs13... it seems SE doesnt care anymore regards that made a final fantasy series great,they are already parts in the game that has shooting,so wouldnt surprise me if ff16 is purely shoting in it.
