They'd need to have a community aspect like Monster Hunter. IIRC, isn't that one of the main reasons that game did so well in Japan?

Yea, but I think they are trying to address with that with the expansive online multiplayer aspect.

No. Especially since the game is part of the FF13 universe so it will obviously end up flopping. Maybe if it was something like Final Fantasy Agito 14 or something it may have a chance.

that square was in fact trying to go after the Monster Hunter Audience and that with their world wide recognition of FF they'll most likely succeed
