Tetsuya Nomura has left the Final Fantasy XV project, on which he was serving as Director. Final Fantasy Type-0 and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Director Hajime Tabata will step up from Co-Director to FFXV's main Director.
Really, I mean come on, all those years...you couldn't go on for a little longer to finish it once and for all.
What's the problem? I'm sure all of his ideas are already in place. Considering how long he's been helming the title. They're just working on completing stuff he doesn't need to be around for. Like combat system refining, modeling work, etc. It only makes sense that they free him up to start working on KH3, as FFXV is most likely already nearing completion at this point.
Agreed. If they don't have all his work ironed out after an entire generation of work then the game was doomed anyways. At this point all that's likely left is polish and filler for added length. IE keys on the other side of dungeons.
Agree, and Tabata is a good director. Crisis Core was a good game (in my opinion) and Type-0 was well received very well. The HD version is shaping up good! Like you say Nomuras work will still be prevelant in FFXV.
my 1st comment in over a year. enjoy http://www.youtube.com/watc...
They are probably doing finishing touches, so there's no reason for him to be there full time. Also, there is no way he will abandon the project completely, only serve as a consultant while the game is done.
It seems its in the final phase and he left the polishing for hajime and if there is some parts unfinished then am sure he can handle it well as he did in Type 0.
Can't help but think that after all this time he's fed up with FF15, and wants to go to a comfort zone. Which is KH. Also - yeah, going to be that guy - Where's your Nomura now?! @Snookies12: Given all this time there's no telling what shape the production is in. By the look of "leaked" trailers, there are have been two if not three revamps of design and direction. Though, more than likely, if FF15 makes an appearance this TGS, then you might be right: they just to polish a finished project.
If they're going to be releasing a demo with Type-0 in March, they're not going to be revamping any longer. There'd be no point in the demo if they're just going to change up stuff afterward. They're close to finishing, or at least somewhat close if they're planning on releasing a playable demo.
The game isn't being left in the dust. They just confirmed the demo for March 17th in a trailer that was released for Type-0
Does this mean FF15 in alpha stage at least now?
Guess that means we'll see Kingdom Hearts 3 sooner than we think.
More games that I can remote play excites me.
new FF XV trailer = awesome!!, enjoy!! link updated!! https://www.youtube.com/wat...
You are amazing. Thanks for this. Couldn't be more excited for this title. It NEEDS to come out... like, now lol.
FFXV is in Great hands
yesssss! kingdom hearts 3!
Good news. Kingdom Hearts will now be in full swing and FFXV will be left to finish polishing by another trusted hand.
YES the game is in good hands. FFXV and KH3 are my most anticipated next gen games this has been a good day.
KH3 was basically confirmed for TGS. Where is it? :(
This is the year of Kingdom hearts 2.5 as they said they wouldn't announce anything new for 3 and focus on 2.5
It's FF12 all over again. With the exception that this isn't really a Final Fantasy. It's just a spin-off with a name change so it's actually less of a FF game than FF13 and FF13 didn't feel like much of a FF game either.
I suspect FFXV and KH3 will eventually lead to a FFVII remake! How do I know? Because Crisis Core was testing the waters!
The Ninten year olds are on high alert, that is where the disagrees are coming from.
Why do you care about disagrees?
This is just one of those normal news taken out of context for clickbaiting. He probably just finished all he had to do with the game and needs to move on to Kingdom Hearts 3 which is 100% fine by me.
As long as the torch has been passed on to someone worthy of this game I have no qualms about this.
I think Tabata is a better director than Toriyama and i want to be more optimist that i can play this game before i'm resting forever in my coffin. But no release date and Nomura just left the project means "this isn't a good sign" for me. It best to approach it with more caution because i remembered almost the same case with FF XII where SE replaced Yasumi Matsuno in the middle of development with Ito & Kawazu and the result is FF XII felt rush in story department.
Probably for the best, Nomura has to many projects in his hands.
*sigh* hopefully this game will be great, I had huge hopes of this game because of nomura-san. The long wait, no longer PS exclusive, and now this...anyhow, Crises Core and type 0 are good games so hoping this guy does a good job.
Noctis: its a been a long time waiting! Just a little longer we'l be there....
oh... i wonder who will get credit for directing this game. be a shame if you was directing for 6 years and then for the final strecth you move on and someone else gets credit for it.
After seeing what they've spent years on development for, i think this will sell based on hype alone. Squeenix has truly dropped the ball.
now all we need is The Last Gaurdian to take place from it's long slumber now!!!
