Recent comments from Final Fantasy Type-0 HD director about the game serving as a stepping stone for XV gives us an idea where the series is heading.
Just because the battle system is changing, that doesn't mean that FF Type-0 & FFXV are any less of a Final Fantasy game as the old ones. Any fan of Final Fantasy knows that the series has been through a pretty rough time in recent years, maybe a change would be good for the series.
Finally an positive outlook on change for this franchise i welcome it and really hooe xv delivers
Doesn't the battle aystem change every FF anyways??
@Apoca1ypse Not necessarily. The Active Turn-Based (ATB) battle system was a staple in the franchise from IV up until X, when the Conditional Turn-Based (CTB) battle system replaced it. Sure, there were tweaks here and there, but the ATB was ubiquitous for a decade.
both FFT0 and FFXV look great and should wash away bitterness of the Lightning trilogy.
I've played & finished Type-0. Even with the Kingdom Hearts like battle system it is the characters & story that define a good Final Fantasy game. And boy does Type-0 have the story & the characters, if you are looking for fluff, you are looking in the wrong place cause Type-0's story is deep,dark & emotional (that ending). It is a shame that the game wasn't localized when it first came out on the PSP cause it would've made FF13 look like childs play & a subpar Final Fantasy game.
I dont kno much about type-0 it has kh battke system? !?!! Im sold
@Blackleg-Senji It has some similarities to KH I guess, but to me i feel like it's way different gameplay wise
That's good to hear. I have been hoping and praying for them to bring it over. And for them to redo it in HD for PS4 just makes me a happy man. :D
The issue FF has at the moment is the lack of FF games. FF13 had 2 sequels that used a very similar battle system and the same story meaning they were more expansions of the story rather than new games and if you weren't a fan of 13 you weren't going to pick up the sequels. That left a massive 10 year gap between FF13 and 15 (14 being an MMO and not for everybodys tastes). I cant believe its taking them over 10 years to make the next main FF game thats not an MMO its really silly and it alienates long time fans and kills sales. It's why they had no choice but to go 360 in the end as PS sales weren't as strong last gen.
Megaton because of that demo.
I'd still feel more comfortable if square would give us a tried and true classic FF like they did with ff9. At least that would give me confidence that they can make a decent game. If ff15 fails the series is dead.
FF13 wasn't much of a FF game and FFXV won't be much of one either. I would've been ok with it being VS 13 as it was just a spinoff game but now they're trying to make it one of the main games in the franchise. Looks like I'm still going to have to wait for a REAL Final Fantasy game. Maybe they won't screw up Final Fantasy 16 but I highly doubt it.
I'll be keeping a close eye for when the steam version of this hits. we all know it's going to happen. last year Kitase said quote - "we see potential in it and there are lots of regions and countries where PC is very strong. So in terms of our hope of being able to deliver our games to every single country in the world and to as many gamers as possible, yes, we would definitely be interested in pursuing that route in the future." http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... and then it was leaked on Steam's data base. http://www.latintimes.com/f... I'll be definitely happy to get back my money's worth after i pick up the console version of this.
This is exactly why I REFUSE to buy Type-0 or XV. This industry already has TOO MANY action-RPGs. We don't need another turn-based series to turn action. Final Fantasy is in DESPERATE need of change. BUT, the change it needs is to return to it's roots and be more like 6-10. This series is about to turn into action-RPG #9999999999 that is "Final Fantasy" in name alone. It will just be another face in the crowd.
Type-0 is amazing, You'll be missing out on a solid game
Square-Enix is lost, they will remove the turn-based combat on FFXV, really? What happened with the good and old JRPG? Lucky us that we still have Level-5, Monolith and Namco-Bandai.
well Square did deliver good old fashioned turned based combat in Bravely Default
You didn't like Crisis Core or Dirge Of Cerberus?
"gives us an idea where the series is heading" Right into a wall. Final Fantasy should stay turn-based rpg.
I finished the PSP ver, it really is different from the other FF games and has many solid new ideas.
FFXV is not what I want from a final fantasy game... what I'm doing is think of it as a new IP from the KH and TWEWY team and that way I can be excited about it.
Yet, by buying it, you'll be supporting that as the new direction of the series... Please don't...
