In an effort to bolster the quality of the Final Fantasy series going forward, Square Enix has deemed it necessary to bring together some of the franchise’s top creators in what they’re calling the “Final Fantasy Committee.”
That's good, I would love to be apart of that committee. First and foremost I hope they understand what trends they've set and accumulated with this series.
a literal "development by committee" LOL
Dayum. Toriyama and Tabata but no Nomura or Ito? Or Tokita? I fail to perceive how this can be the right direction. IMO, last FF game I played was... Lost Odyssey... But that thanks to Sakaguchi and Uematsu, definitely not Square.
Lost Odyssey is the last true FF
Lost Odyssey was a great game, but to me it fell short of the FF caliber, and felt a like left over pieces of FF IV, to me.
Unless they can get some of the people that left SE(like the series creator for instance) on board in this committee, it will be pointless.
A committee to ensure quality from future Final Fantasy titles...includes Motomu Toriyama... Rofl! Why am I not surprised?
Sounds awesome to me.
I find some of these picks to be highly questionable...
He's an understudy. Just there for learning purposes, hopefully.
Toriyama being on the commitee really defeats the purpose. It would be like Putting Putin on the commitee for free speech in Russia.
Lol. Still, hopefully every time he attempts to open his mouth, one of the higher ups will shake his head at him and he'll go back to being quiet.
would't he be there to actually learn from other committee members, which is a step forward in my eyes. Regardless what he is like now at least he is showing initiative.
Great news and I stole that pic they had at the top off the page. Hopefully the committee doesn't murder each other and we get some quality ff games in the future.
So they made a committee to ensure that the next Final Fantasy games are just as bad (if not worse) than the last. Square-Enix will never make a good Final Fantasy. They're better off just abandoning the franchise at this point as they've already run it into the ground.
I'd love to see Level 5 pick it up.
Nice one bubble you've got there. Compliments your post, too.
No nomura? And the pick members that are mainly responsible for ruining the series......this can't go wrong.......
