Today, Square Enix surprised Final Fantasy series fans and live stream gameplay of Final Fantasy XV demo showcasing some impressive graphics/visuals, realistic dynamic day-night cycle and lot more.
Between FFXV, MGS5, P.T, Deep Down and Bloodborne Japanese developers are making a comeback and competing with western AAA production values again, the learning curve was steep but now should be smooth sailing.
Yes I agree. Japan finally got thier mojo back. Evil within, fatal frame 5, silent hills, mgs5, FF15, bloodborne, bayonetta 2, guilty gear xrd, etc. My god all of a sudden it feels like I'm back in the ps2 era with so many AAA Japanese games again. With western developed games they mostly focused on shooting with no creativity or memorable moments or characters.
Funny how one of the biggest publishers/devs in Japan still are struggling thanks to their "westernized" philosophy for the future of their franchises. I'm ofcourse talking about Capcom. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is a start in the right direction, but from what has been shown it's apparently a babystep in the right direction. Meanwhile, other devs are going strong with their direction... FFXV, MGS5, PT, Bloodborne and Evil Within etc. Ontopic... That footage is really compressed yet i still found it to be mindblowing. Especially the teleportation and the details of the environment.
i think they really struggled with the cell processor last gen, hence the late jump to the ps3 format. this gen they have no excuses. its great to see japanese developers compete worldwide.
Dang this game is seriously impressive looking. I have high hopes for this game. Can't wait to play the demo next March! :D
impressive! i hope this is real console footage...
Of course it is
There is a lot of aliasing. ITs for sure console footage.
This is realy looking good.I cant wait for this!

I never played a Final Fantasy game before. Is it alright to start at 15? Because this game looks amazing and fun.
Yep, all Main numbered FF games are set in completely different worlds/universes with different characters and story (Unless its a direct sequel like FF 13-2 for example)
I was expecting the frog at the beginning to go and slap someone for 1HP. Looking forward to seeing/hearing more on this for when I get my PS4.
lol. totally forgot about frog status. i was wondering why they were showing a frog. dont get a ps4 just for this game. you never know, we may have to wait until ps5 is out until this game gets completed :P
Lol @ PS5.
Quite impressive? Lol... try very impressive lol
looks pretty cool, nothing too impressive. i liked the idea in ffxii where certain mobs only appear at certain weather conditions. however it could be a pain in the ass at times, had to wait a few hours just so that one area appears to be foggy if i remember correctly. anyways, i cant wait for this game. fopefully international release would be before april 2016.
Impressive, I think the ton of mo-cap adds to a high quality feel. If I had one criticism it'll be the city feels dead, needs to have some ambiance like flashing lights, birds, some fluttering flags etc.
I've never played a Final Fantasy game before but watching the trailer to this has got me interested, it looks fantastic.
It's like every little bit of info I see on this game makes me even more excited for it. Keeping my fingers crossed that this will be a great one
Too bad it's still probably gonna be another few years before the game is actually released.... Oh yeah and KH3 takes precedent over this too... i'd rather see those demo's ;)
