Square Enix just released a new batch of screenshots of Final Fantasy XV, which will be released for PS4 and Xbox One at a date yet to be determined.
This and FF type0-HD will be my first FF games. Figured I mas aswell try em out since this is one of the few gaming series I have never played.
Hope you enjoy them! As someone who's been with the series since the original on NES, I'm not sure what to expect. However, I'm highly hopeful for both of these entries even if they don't look like traditional past entries. Definitely pre-ordering Type-0 though both for being excited for the game itself and the FFXV demo.
They should make a modern 2d final fantasy game.
I would really love to see a 16bit error FF game but down with high resolution and next gen color and particle effects. I really liked how the PSP versions of FF1&2 were still old school but had overlaying effects that really made it shine. Would love to see that! But a completely fresh story.
My first Final Fantasy was 13 -_- Here's hoping these 2 are better.
Ouch, sorry about that. Not to say FFXIII was bad, but it wasn't the type of quality FF titles are known to bring. (Aside from graphically, it was superb in the graphics department.) I agree with your reply to my comment above though, I'd love to see them do a new 2D Final Fantasy, that would be amazing!
Wow man, tough luck. Probably any other FF is better than XIII. At least you should go back and try XII on PC (good emulators these days)
My first was also 13 and I loved it. Was excited to try 7 when it came digitally to PS3 a long time ago and I didn't like it. I also got 10 remastered last year and didn't like that either. So tired of the hate 13 gets. People just hate change and 13 changed so much that it wasn't Final Fantasy to a lot of people. Whether it was or wasn't is irrelevent, the game is just a great game on its own. If it wasn't called Final Fantasty, people would never think it was so bad, fact. Amazing story with amazing combat, it's one of my most favorite games from last gen and I don't really care what everyone else thinks.
Well Bigcman, It was a boring and repetitive game
Good to you :) you will be able to play with no expectation about previous FF Games like the most of us... i still dream with a Turn Based Final Fantasy Game like FFX one of the best games i ever played...
like first ever? when have u been born, yesterday?
@dmitrijs88 "like first ever? when have u been born, yesterday?" Such a dumb thing to say. lol. Just because I was never into turn based RPGs, that does not mean I was born yesterday. My first console was a nintendo NES...in 1987. Next.... Its always the guys with the final fantasy/DBZ/anime avatars that say the dumbest shit, i swear.... lol and its "when were you born" not "when have you been born". Did you get your grammar skills from badly translated JRPGS, or something?
I HIGHLY recommend getting your hands on Final Fantasy X HD. It's a fantastic game and one of the best Final Fantasies hands down. The sequel X-2 is also pretty damn good. Definitely worth any gamer's time. :)
funny, I thought that FFX was the first bad one they made. the old open world system of I-IX and leveling system was so much better.
I know I'm alone with this but they should have stayed with the ATB system. To me that's FF. Still looking forward to 15 though
I think Bravely Default/Second/However many they are going to make... I think that series has sort of taken the turn-based torch from FF. I love the first 10 FF games and their turn based systems (I even liked the CTB system the most - despite its return to inactive battles,) but I know the series has to evolve. I think FFXIII's system was actually awesome, and FFXV's looks really cool too, but to me, the biggest downside to ditching the ATB system is the fact that they keep making new, one-off ones for each FF. The games came out so much more quickly when they were running on the same systems for each game (for each console through the PS1, each set of FF games played, mechanically, in a very similar fashion). I hope, if it's good, they keep this new battle system in place so FFXVI comes out sooner rather than later (which is preferred over a FFXV series, I think.)
FF VI : 1.FF XV Batle system ++ (i can dream) 2.Agnis is main Hero 3.You can ride dragons. 4.Extremly mature. 5.Made by Ito.
@NoctisPendragon Is it possible that you meant FFXVI? ;)
Yes *XVI .
well, the most flexible system i played and loved was FFXII's gambit. that game is a hit/miss but i loved how i didnt force me to button mash / micromanage every fight and still control the battle. I would like to see them back in some capacity and better implemented that those tactics settings in DA
does it bother anybody else that we haven't seen any summons yet? Like at all? I'm actually incredibly excited to see what they did with Ifrit and Shiva. Would be crazy if they gender bended them like they (potentially) did Cid.
They said they're still working on the summon system. That's why we haven't seen anything yet. They also said, they're now focusing on it because they're going to have at least one summon usable in the demo that comes with Type-0. It's the reason we're not going to have magic in that demo, because they wanted to show off summons before fully implementing the magic system later on in development.
This the first Next gen title I've actually been hyped for. Every other game that came out thus far I rlly wasn't hyped at all for.
One of my favourite things to see is a clash between a natural environment and technology--especially if the technology itself seems primitive. These photos have added to my decision to buy this game...I would eventually get it though. :P edit "[...] primitive according to the game's world."
Still sub FHD? On well, at least we know these are legit screenshots, they look really good regardless, like really good
Both titles remind me of Crisis Core which was a fantastic game! In the bottom pic the blonde guy looks like Cloud.
Tabata made FF Crisis Core and FF type 0 . And is directing FF XV atm.
Ah cool thanks didn't know that.
He is directing what is left of FFXV, need I remind people that this game has been in development since 2005? I doubt what he has done over a year, is some how even noticeable in the final product, he is likely over seeing many technical issues as the full concept and story of the game have likely been done for some time.
_-EDMIX-_ it has not been in development since 2005 it only had trailers etc back then
This game is still at the top of my list of most anticipated games but the quote talking about them "worrying about the game being too long" when it is only 40 hours has me deeply concerned. If there is anything you can say to your fans more stupid than we are bringing FFVII to PS4! (Roaring Applause) as a digital download of the PC version! *Never gonna give you up never gonna let you down* It would be telling your fans. Hey I know we specialize in RPG's that are in depth, detailed, and insanely long but you know what? 40 hours is too long we need to make this shorter! So now it went from my most anticipated game to still in my top 5. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Batman Arkham Knight Uncharted 4 Kingdom Hearts 3 Final Fantasy XV Witcher 3 : Wild Hunt Quantum Break Majora's Mask Xenoblade Chronicles X Mortal Kombat X (The above list isn't in any particular order other than that Metal Gear Batman and Uncharted are tied for 1st place XV was there as well now it is in the middle somewhere) Rainbow Six Siege and The Division were in the list but since they screwed up more than half of their releases last year they can F*** off. I won't buy any of their games until 3-6 months after release anymore until they can release games a year consistently without issues also known as (never going to happen) I NEED Final Fantasy XV to be Amazing! A realm reborn redeemed FFXIV XV needs to redeem the series. Don't shorten the damn length!
You don't need to worry about the length. I choose to believe it was their crazy way of saying "We're gonna have a lot of content. Please be excited!". Because it was also stated that they WANTED to reduce the content, but that they were simply failing to do so because they just keep adding more and more. ;)
FFXV has been known to fall in line with the KH series in terms of gameplay, neither KH1 nor 2 were extremely long games by RPG standards. But 40 hours really isn't that bad, consider Chrono Trigger, FFIV etc were around 40 hours long. Its not a bad number buddy, believe me. Most RPGs actually fall around that number, can you put 100 hours in? Sure, if you feel like 100% the game, but generally speaking, most RPGS if you just go for the main quest can be finished around that time.
@Eiyuuou, _0EDMIX-_ and the many silent disagrees. Wow really? People are this upset at my calling a company out? Once upon a time Squaresoft was my favorite company. Squareenix has made a lot of great games but they aren't Squaresoft. I know its popular to defend your favorite companies tooth and nail but I actually expect more from them because of it. So when a company with an otherwise good reputation or known for having a better reputation in the past starts to disappoint me time and time again? I don't care how many of my favorite games they made. I WILL call them out on it as it is important to voice criticism so they continue to live up to the insane standards we admittedly put on JRPG companies. When you hear that one of the main Bastion's of the JRPG is starting to worry that their game is "too long and outright saying they are trying to shorten it?" That is a problem. You don't have to agree with me and you don't even have to see it I would love nothing more than to be wrong about this. I have been waiting for this game since Final Fantasy Versus XIII was announced if the game comes out and it is awesome that is well and good my concern is the fact that many of the recent Squareenix games (especially in regards to their staple Final Fantasy series) have an abundance of DLC. Which is fine if it is created after the fact but when it is hidden on the disc and withheld from the game I have an issue with that Not saying they have done that either just giving my context of when I do and don't find it acceptable. I really don't even care how long a game is as long as the game isn't partitioned out in chunks where part of the experience is withheld to sell it on the side Excluding RPG's and sandbox experiences. Sorry but those games need to be as long as they can be as long as it doesn't derail the experience. I hate when a game is padded out with crap to artificially extend it's length and I hate when a game's forced multiplayer greatly decreases the single player campaign. Otherwise I enjoy a good story the more time I have to immerse myself in that world with those characters the better. This is really a very common practice now in videogames like it has become the rule not the exception. However the japanese rpg's for the most part still stayed intact. They were just as long as before maybe some items,weapons,or extra missions are added but nothing detracted from the length of the core experience itself. When you hear one of the big guys if not the biggest in the JRPG circle talking about their game being too long? That sends alarm bells ringing for me. That doesn't make me feel like they are going to actually shorten the game itself so much as sell pieces of it on the side or worse halve the game to sell it as 2 parts or 3. I can't make you agree with me I just find it unfortunate that we don't hold the companies we expect more from to a higher standard and blindly defend them when they slip up.
nothing new. Just more screens of fighting on the road
