This game looks better than Final Fantasy in a lot of ways but also doesn't really resemble it.

It's got it's own kind of feeling. It has like a 10% Dragon Quest feel to it kind of for some reason.

if you want you a game to get funded in less than a week put pc exclusive on it.

DiscoKid1293d ago

The next Final Fantasy? Game has nothing reminiscent of it. This is more like a Naruto Storm RPG.

RB2011221292d ago

Good point DiscoKid! However, the makers of the game have said that they found inspiration for the music from various major RPG titles in the past, including Final Fantasy. Lets hope that Shiness can SHINE as a stand out game in its genre.

I can definitely hear Chrono Cross in the tracks!

kalkano1293d ago

It's an action-RPG. So, no, it's not the next Final Fantasy (and neither is XV).

Spotie1292d ago

Get over it. Like most franchises- though not all necessarily for the better- FF is evolving.

kalkano1292d ago

Absolutely false. Final Fantasy used to evolve. Now, it's just changing genres.

Irishguy951292d ago (Edited 1292d ago )

Changing to a better genre yes :D

Nah I just like Action RPG's gameplay alot more. I can name Dark souls as one of my favorite games due to the battles. I can't say the same about FF, although I can say FF is one of my favorite franchises for the rest of it. The battles are the only thing that were never on par for me.

I hope you were saying the exact something when it was named versus, because so many of you "fans" did a complete 180 on that game.

kalkano1292d ago

No, you're just hearing different opinions. Stop assuming the same people are making these contradicting statements. I never understood the "savior of Final Fantasy" talk when it was Versus. But, I was pretty indifferent towards it, because it was a spinoff, and I assumed the main series wouldn't be affected.

We should support their project so we can put this on PS4 and X1. The perseverance and care shown by these people into making a wonderful JRPG game is obvious. Please help fund Shiness today at the link in the article or below:

you really seem to be involved in the project lol...

I hope this hits the Wii U stretch goal but at least as it stands the game is getting made and that's the most important part.
