Kitase: Final Fantasy XV could be an action RPG

The next mainline Final Fantasy could move away from the series’ turn-based roots in favor for a more action-oriented battle system, according to Final Fantasy XIII-2 producer Yoshinori Kitase.

Speaking to EDGE, Kitase said the rising popularity of action RPGs are becoming “a trend”—one “you ignore at your peril.”

Versus XIII looks like it's going to be the precursor of this, if it does happen. Thing is if it can stay tactical (Hate all you want but FFXIII's battle system was stupidly good, incredibly tactical and deeper than a lot of the haters make it out to be. Simply 'mashing X/Auto Battle' did fuck all against the games harder enemies aka Long Gui, Attacus etc etc). As long as XV has a deep, tactical combat system, I'm down for anything. Just make it good.

If done right, it would be amazing. FF would do well with a Star Ocean-style battle system, but still keeping the elements of FF alive and well.
