FFXV says no. I will skip XIII-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Lightning has a period and whatever else there is, but will jump back in for XV.

Agreed. I think its time for people to stop crying doom over the series being over. XV will probably turn out to be the best in the series.

Yeah, 14 is an MMO. 15 is an action-RPG, and they're already planning sequels (meaning 15 will probably span next gen, the way 13 spanned this one)...I don't think I'll ever be coming back to Final Fantasy.

XI was an mmo too... it's not like XIV and XV are the first to break the mold...

Capt-FuzzyPants1400d ago

Pretty sure they never hinted at sequels for XV. I remember one website twisting Nomura's words around to amke a story saying sequels were a possibility. But Nomura never said anything legitimately even hinting toward a sequel.

kalkano1400d ago

'Says Nomura: “In the trailer, there was a line that read “A World of the Versus Epic,” which suggests that it will be part of an epic. While Final Fantasy XV will have one climax, as a story, we plan to continue it further.”'

Or he could be saying that the game, or the game world will epic.

A rpg >> ffs turn based.

I dont get why so many people like those combat systems. Low level of strategy akin to that of arpgs....i mean most people to love kh and that game has no ff elements and nothing but tge combat. Which shows the combat itself is goood enough to hold a game up without all that makes ff great

levian1399d ago

Honestly, I don't understand people's mindset.

An RPG isn't defined by being turn based. There are many different types. No one that I have heard of disliked Kingdom Hearts for its combat, yet people are quick to slander XV

kalkano1399d ago


I don't think anyone is arguing otherwise. However, Final Fantasy is most definitely NOT an action-RPG. I don't care how SE wants to bastardize the series. Final Fantasy is turn-based, and any attempt to make it otherwise, makes it NOT Final Fantasy.

Irishguy951399d ago

By all means go ahead and skip what might be the best thing square has ever created...just because of its name

RPG12011400d ago

As a hardcore fan who thinks the last good one's were X, XII and Type 0, FFXV looks great from any angle. Cutting edge graphics, uematsu ost, crystal motif, towns, world map, great fighting system. But the best thing is what XIII got wrong; understandable story, not babbling non sense.

Luke_fon_Fabre1400d ago

shimomura actually. i agree with you though

It's always the end of a franchise when Square-Enix has something to do with it.

RPG12011400d ago

Oh sorry guys, so this is bashing Square time; My Mistake XD

Hicken1399d ago

Any time is Square-Enix bashing time right now. Don't think they could do anything to change that for most of these people.

As for me, I'll go into the new games like I've done with every one before them: with an open mind. I'm sure I'll enjoy what I play.
