Is 2014 Final Fantasy’s Year?

Grainger Games takes a look at Square Enix's Final Fantasy releases scheduled for 2014 and looks at the games that might make it the developer's best year ever. (Culture, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster: Collector’s Edition, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Final Fantasy XV, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PC, PS3, PS4, Square Enix, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I think it will be a rebrith rather than the year of ff.

They are getting rid of the 13 saga and ff 14 looks mightly impressive.

FF x HD hints towards a new chapter on the final fantasy 10 saga (which presonally I am dubious and feel it is just a cash in rather than real love for Spira)

In 2014 I want to see:
A realese date for 15 announced
A realse date for kh HD 2.5
A lot more info on KH 3
An Agito localisation
A new chapter in Vagrant Story
A new dragon quest

Thats just my personal list.

Do you mean FFXV?

Because XIV has been out for a while now...

And they are getting rid of XIII, but from my demo impressions, they're getting rid of it with a bang! That battle system is pretty great!

a release for XV is highly unlikely,if by a miracle it does release it will be JAP in dec at earliest).
LR is trash.even japanese gamers dont like it.
only good thing is XIV which technically released last year.(PS4 release this year)
HD remasters don't count, which also released last year btw.
KH isnt FF..
TheLyonKing  +   340d ago
yeah but it is coming out on the ps4 which is what i am meaning. didnt make it clear sorry :)
TheLyonKing  +   340d ago
@vishmarx I said a release date, not it being released this year

HD remasters do count as it allows people to relive past experiences and allow younger players to maybe get to experience it.

FF10 HD isn't out til march and 2.5HD KH hasn't even got a release date yet.

KH has FF characters and interwoven plot lines with them so in my eyes it is very much part of the ff tree.

I can deal with another dragon quest for sure. But I would LOVE a new final fantasy tactics advance. That game ate up over 100 hours of my life, and I would have it any other way.
TheLyonKing  +   339d ago
I played the original and the Psp version two. They are really gems that are under rated

It is sad to see FFXIII go away this year but at least this opens up more dev time to create the next chapter of FF (being FFXVI, not XV). Hopefully we can see a release date for XV along with the localiation of Type-0.

XIII overstayed its welcome.
ErryK  +   340d ago
XIII lasted what? 4 years? Not that it matters, because y'know, XV isn't out yet.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   340d ago
If FFXV makes it out this year probably only in Japan. I have doubts it will but I hope it does anyway.
Nerdmaster  +   340d ago
More like Final Fantasy's final year. FFXIII-3 looks terrible and FFXV looks too much like XIII gameplay-wise.

XV's gameplay looks nothing like XIII. Not even close.
goldwyncq  +   340d ago
LR's battle gameplay is largely inspired by FFXV's action oriented gameplay.
SirBradders  +   340d ago
Looks like a cross between kingdom hearts combat system and 12.
KonsoruMasuta  +   340d ago
LR may be action oriented but it's nothing like what they plan on doing with XV. XV is more akin to Kingdom Hearts. LR is more restrictive and you aren't in control as much.
Inception  +   340d ago
We should wait for XV release date. So far, there's only Lightning Returns, XIV that already released last year, and remaster of X/X-2. So, if XV doesn't have a release date in this year than i doubt this year is a FF year.
goldwyncq  +   340d ago
Hopefully we get new info on FFXV soon.

Call me a hater but nope 2014 won't be FF's year,it's glory years have long passed. That doesn't mean it can't at least be a positive year though.

Will there ever be a Final, final fantasy? Hopefully not. They are hit and miss, but their work on handhold consoles is some of their best.

FFXIV for PS4 is gonna be epic. Lightning Return Demo was excellent, hopefully they learned the mistakes from the first game and made significant improvements to the third installment. XIII-2 was fun and huge leap for XIII so I'm having high hopes for this title

I am still in love with FFVI. I still think it is the best in the series. I am pretty excited to see where they go with FFXV, though.

Either VI or VII is the best. I used to lean way toward VI, but now that I think about it, I like them about the same.
Luke_fon_Fabre  +   338d ago
I can't imagine XV releasing anytime in 2014. Hell, I doubt it will even release 2015. So no, I don't think it will be their year.
GrubsterBeater  +   338d ago
It's looking like a 2015 release, which is a shame because I really want to see where they go with it, you know? Hard to tell with just videos and screenshots, in my opinion.
Luke_fon_Fabre  +   335d ago
It's a damn shame how many games are judged simply by screenshots and gameplay videos these days.
