As the game's trailer states, Final Fantasy XV is a fantasy based on reality. A select group of Japanese gamers don't exactly seem thrilled with that.
Let me guess you didn't even bother reading the article. Soon you saw that the story was coming from Kotaku you thought it would be cool to jump on the Kotaku hate wagon. Man it some Japanese people will complain about every little thing. SE you can't please everyone so just keep it moving.
No, I read it and it's a stupid pointless article.
I personally love the setting and the art direction, it reminds me of Advent Children, which is awesome in my opinion.
Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I also thought the combat was similar to the action sequences from advent children which is awesome to me I love that movie!
whoa i'm kinda surprised by that, the game mixes reality "japan which i love so much and other countries maybe" and fantasy hell, japan is Fantasy, i have no problem if the whole game was set there lol
DO WANT FFXV!
Is a bit odd that some are complaining about it being too "real". Lot more are having issues that its coming off more as an action game. Actually, I do too, but given the current condition and mentality Square has proven itself to be in...meh? The Square fan in died - was murdered by them - long, long ago. Though its mournful spirit lingers.
I'd like it a little less real to be honest but my biggest issue with the trailer is it felt like I was watching a DMC trailer not FF. I'm really not sure on the direction there going. Is it too much these days to ask for a classic turn based FF? Ni No Kuni did a great job of staying pretty true to the roots of JPRG and sold well...it can be done!!!
I agree. The trailer looked amazing and what they are trying to achieve i applaud them. I hate how square has treated its fan base. Making us wait this long then having it go multi. Im on the fence on this game not because its multi, but because of the battle system. Never was a fan of it in kingdom hearts and now they are using it for this game. Theres no challenge hell i beat kh and crisis core just with one button. Summons and magic don't play a major roll like the old games.
Interesting read. Makes a ton of sense though.
I love these settings. It's like Square's version of the cyberpunk genre. You see elements from modern times (building and streets), you see sci-fi(airships) but people still fight with swords. ;) Japan are complaining because the main characters look like hosts and you know they prefer 2D anime styles. http://sophiesjapanblog.fil...
I don't think they look as...um...fake as most hosts, tbh. Noctis and Co. look like fairly average (albeit very good looking) Japanese guys imo. A lot of younger Japanese men pay attention to fashion/hair trends so that might be where the inspiration for the character designs came from. E.G... http://www.flickr.com/photo... http://www.flickr.com/photo... (on the right) http://ourkoreanteapot.file... I really like that about the character designs in FFXV. They look like they could be real people. It reminds me of FFVIII's more realistic style (which I also really liked).
who the f*ck cares?
Who said SE develops games for Japan anyway? They probably want to release a Call of Fantasy or Finalfield with Barret, Cid, Vincent, Mustadio, Irvine and everyone else for a FPS game. Unfortunately, Square is past it's prime.
I have every RPG under the sun and I freakin LOVE jrpgs but I wanted this game to have action that pushed the next gen console and judging from the preview shown this game is gonna be exactly what I've been wanting for years. SE will make more ff and I'll bet my life that there will be more RPG style games of the series so enjoy the new change and try it out before you make your complaints.
If SE loses their home market due to them continually westernizing the JRPG's I think they are in a whole lot more trouble then they currently are. They should let their Eidos acquisitions do the appealing to the western people & let their internal SE studios stick to the eastern style games. That way they would be more appealing to both markets imho.
I don't think a handful of comments from a Japanese message board is any indication that they are losing their home market. If anything, the people at the source are complaining the game is TOO Japanese.
lol no, it's a western style boring bang bang slash slash.
Hey guys! This game and its areas were first shown off about 5 years ago. You probably should have started complaining then.
