On the recent interview with “Famitsu”, Final Fantasy producer Hiromichi Tanaka said that Square Enix are investigating a straight port to the PlayStation Vita.
Use the resources to make new IPs or do some FANSERVICE and bring Chrono Trigger,Secret of Mana, Parasite Eve or Kingdom Hearts back on PSVita or make Remakes of them, but do not waste time on a 8 year old MMOgame...
I do not understand why SE is doing this. It is bad business to launch an 8 year old MMO when you are trying to fix the new one! And btw, good list of games there! But I would add Bushido Blade.
There are more Games in my Mind like Secret of Evermore, Terranigma, Rudra no hiou, Front Mission...what about them, they should remake them first
I still own the SNES cartridge for Secret of Evermore! SE has so many games they could work with and they, for whatever reason, refuse to do so.
Why would it be bad for business? It's a straight port and I think it would only appeal to the current subscribers and might bring back old ones since it would be the first MMO on a handheld.How they will implement it in though i don't know but since everyone is saying it's easy to port things onto the Vita i'm sure they can do it and it won't require too much resources. As for the other games i won't be worried. Square's best games this gen are on the PSP imo so i'm sure they'll be all over the Vita.
Yea given how Monster Hunter is such a massive success in Japan - this game is a full fleshed out version of that in some ways. They're thinking of the Japanese market.
i miss bushido blade and also nothing says i dont care about my current gen MMO like porting a last gen MMO
They shouldve never launched ff14. They had a huge ff11 fanbase on ps2, 360, pc. All they needed to do was put ou a ps3/vita version and keep updating it like wow. Wow is big partly because there is no wow 2 to split the fanbase, blizzard updates it and constantly adds expansions. From what ive heard f11 was pretty great so a few graphics updates, expansions, tweaks couldve snowballed it into a huge game. If they really took ff14 seriously they would have a ps3/360 version out already with wii u on the way. They wouldve updated it quicker and better to fix all the niggles peeps ave with it. It seems to have great potential if they listen to feedback. Square was begging ms to let ff14 be on 360, i have no idea why ms said no when ff11 is on there. Just wave the xbl fee for it and throw 5 bucks a month to ms to keep them happy.
They should redo Final Fantasy 7 and release it for the Vita. Would be incredible to play 7 again with updated visuals. Or a Kingdom Hearts for Vita would be great as well.
I think with us waiting this long for a remake of FF7 or even 8/9 we should at least get a full release for the PS3.
Do they no know XI is dead?????
The game's not dead. Still has a lot of people who play the game. Not to mention, it still gets content updates time to time. Though it would of been better for them to promote FFXIV if they were going to put an MMO on the Vita, but I'm sure FFXIV is too graphic demanding to even run on Vita. I don't see how it would work, when you consider simple stuff like needing to have a keyboard, battery life, etc... But if it does come out then it would be something to check out I guess...
All ppl do on fenrir is Abysses exp lol, there's no low lv'n anymore, quest /shouts or anything.....I'm going to re-activate my account and get on tomorrow. Btw know any servers that still have event /shouts in the main towns????
The game is far from dead, if anything people are actually coming back because they actually answered a ton of complaints from the fanbase (I'm actually considering going back myself)
After pretty much every big name company announced or at least hinted at a PS Vita project, SE are finally arriving late to the party. Dissidia and Crisis core where all new experiences for the PSP and did very VERY well (sales only count for one part, the massive amounts of piracy should translate to a wide fanbase). I would not put to much merrit into a straight port of an old FF franchise. After FF type-0, SE wil probably get serious and work on an all new gig built specifically for the PS Vita - not to say there will never be a port of any old franchise for the PS Vita sometime later but, right now SE is firing on all cylinders with the games they established for the PSP. SE should and likely will continue on the legacy of games they built on the PSP.
I just can't imagine playing it without a keyboard. It was always a pain when I had to on PS2 (when i was without my usb keyboard)
Port FFVII with updated graphics
There is no point in doing that when people want the FF7 remake on the PS3. They don't want to settle for a half-assed version made for handhelds.
they make a FF collection instead with Vita compatibility. I may not touch my PS3 for a while lol
I bet this port comes out before vs 13
I say this as a former high level SMN player on FFXI. No SE. No. Yes you can play the game without a keyboard, but imo a keyboard (and no touch keyboards don't count in this instance) or qwerty pad at the minimum is essential for any MMO, especially FFXI.
holy shit lol
XI sucks hell i'd much rather have XII ported over then that stupid mmo
Don't they have more important things to be doing... Remakes/KH3 first, port later. Honestly it's like they know what fans want but they put the easy stuff on top of their "To Do" list
YEY A PS2 port game coming to PSV instead releasing a new FF game. great!
Why cant we have both? Seems like some gamers think publishers release one game at the time. Like EA, or Activision... Wait no they not!
OMG that would be epic. Do it Square-enix.
