The old Final Fantasy is no more.

This is a The Realm Reborn Generation of Final Fantasy.

Definately a good move by SquareEnix to rename the game FFXV. A new start on next gen consoles is good for the` series, plus the game looks phenominal and is doing new things gameplay-wise.

I agree...though I like the game FF-XIII knowing half the fan base is sick of anything Lightning & XIII,Square did the right thing by not associating the name with XIII & changing it to XV,this game is looking like a potential Square masterpiece!

This video was almost completely unnecessary.

I really hope this game lives up to the hype.
It carry's a big burden after the disappointment of the XIII series. Here's hoping it brings Final Fantasy back to the glory days.

You can already see from the videos that it won't bring it back to the glory days. The FF franchise is dead and FFXV already looks worse than FF13. It's nothing but some Kingdom Hearts spinoff with "Final Fantasy" slapped on the box.

I'll be skipping it much like every other FF game from now on. FF13 was supposed to bring FF back to the glory days and it didn't so I avoided every FF after that and will continue to do so because it's all a bunch of hype for a now mediocre franchise.

People hoping that the next game will constantly bring it back to the glory days of when the games were actually good are just as delusional as Sonic fans.

Yeah I think it looks like a little too much kingdom hearts and not enough Final Fantasy.
The kids would go nuts if they had to sit and think of a strategy though so that's why they scrapped turn based combat. I don't believe this game will bring the series back to the glory days but I can still hope that it does.
Oh and Sonic Generations was quite decent! haha
This is ten times better though...

This game looks nothing like KH,the production...graphics,the serious tone,the atmosphere,the battle system & the drama looks totally FF & I'm a fan since the SNES days & FF always reinvents each chapter in the series,yes the battle system is action but it's not the 90's or early 2000,Square has to keep it fresh what was successful a long time ago can't be said today,those are long gone mechanics & some people still like that formula but the show must go on.

Are you guys looking at the same game that I am. While he was talking I was watching the FFXV footage running in the background and it looks awesome. My only concern is that I hope the game remembers to slow down and give us some freedom and choice on where to go and which quests to take. I don't want another long corridor on rails like FFXIII was.

But I got no complaints on what I'm seeing of that combat. It's not turn based, but let's see how it actually plays. It looks like it's working, and change is good, when it works.

DigitalRaptor1050d ago (Edited 1050d ago )

Versus has always been a ton more ambitious than any FF game in years, and despite having a real-time battle system (who cares?) it's more FInal Fantasy than the abomination we got this gen and its cash-in sequels.

XV will deliver what it set out to and new hardware will be a part of ensuring this, I have no doubt of that, but will people find it to match the hype of 7-8 years of waiting? That remains to be seen. Will still pre-order and play it as soon as it's available.

Yo the gameplay looks sharp, who cares about the name.
