SQUARE ENIX have no Money to make the RPG that Fans wanted.

Few Possible ways to have a proper FF RPG is;
1. Kickstarter

2. MMORPG component add-on for FINAL FANTASY XV.
That'll attract Investment, because FF11 was SQUARE ENIX most Profitable Game.

I expect SQUARE ENIX do everything,
and MMO that have customizable Battle Airships sounds fun.

FFXV AirShips Battles !

Have no money? Did u see the Agni's philosophy. Or the quality of the cutscenes and graphics of Final Fantasy XV. Let me tell you that that stuff isn't cheap

aetze1966d ago

You acknowledged that "Agni's philosophy" is not cheap.

Plus, its clear from SQUARE ENIX continuosly falling stock price that they have no money, to make the RPG that Fans wanted.

... I've been waiting for this one for far to long, was amongst my original reasons to buy a PS3 back in the day.

It looks incredible thus far, all that time seems to pay off indeed!

Disagree crew are on the march, Beware!

Wheres the RPG?

uh....its the same gameplaythan KH, so yeah its a RPG.

Firan1966d ago

There are hardly any RPG elements in KH games.

PeaSFor1966d ago (Edited 1966d ago )

...look like some peoples doesnt know the meaning of RPG, theres is a LOT of different types and thats just too bad that we see peoples thinking that the ONLY "real" rpg are turn based.

whats next?? will we stop to call a 2d platformers "real plateformer" simply because you have more option than being forced to go from the left to the right?

gamers these days...... what a bunch of confused silly kids.

Firan1966d ago

Who the hell said anything about turn based? Not me so why you are throwing a tantrum about that is beyond me.

Tell me why KH games are RPGs then. There's a leveling system and uh... What else?

I do know there are different RPG sub-genres and all but that doesn't mean a few RPG elements make any game a RPG.

arronax-11966d ago

Hardly any in Crisis Core and people were okay with that.

Practically every game is an RPG if you consider the fact that you almost always assume a ROLE and PLAY a GAME. You need to add more letters or adjectives to the acronym in order to prevent Mario, Call of Duty, and Assassin's Creed from falling under its reach.

zerocrossing1966d ago

Not really. When most people think of an RPG they expect some kind tactical battle system where you need to plan your actions ahead of the enemies, use buffs and such, or better yet a turn based battle system. Lost Odyssey already proved the old system still works perfectly well.

FF-XV looks like a straight up action game to me, with some light RPG elements just like Kingdom Hearts was. Nothing wrong with that I suppose but it's just a shame to see Final Fantasy completely turning away from what had drawn so many gamers to it to begin with, simply to gain mass appeal... I suppose that's just the way the industry is right now.

THANK YOU!! rpg doesn't mean turn based!! Lol glass someone else understands this.

Here we go. Ontological arguments on what it means to "be" an RPG carried angrily by whiny fanboys (or, not be, because the negative side of it is the most fun to scream about). You guys know that buffs, experience points, elemental attacks, and HP were all in Borderlands, right? I want a *traditional Japanese turn-based RPG* just as much as any of you, but I'm not going to sit here and complain that an E3 video of an upcoming game for an unreleased console isn't an RPG in the broadest sense. Nearly every new game out there co-opted the traditional RPG in some way. Jesus Jones.

Look, if you haven't played FF7: Crisis Core on PSP yet, go do that. That was a Final Fantasy game with action elements, real-time menu options for which weapons, skills, and magic to use, and it was great. Was it repetitive and grindy and really silly by the time you were dealing 99999 damage? Absolutely. But it was fun. It was way better than anything else past Final Fantasy X, that's for sure. The right guys are designing this particular game, so sit back, relax, and let's see what this is all about once it's playable. If it sucks, then they're the wrong guys, and we can lambaste their next attempt at a game.

It's an action game with RPG elements. Get used to it, Square-Enix don't know wtf they're doing anymore.
