This week, Darryl is joined by Colin and Lauren and they jump straight into the fray. Unfortunately, there isn't much news this week, but the gang spends a bit of time talking about Theatrhythm and its release date."

For a Mainstream Final Fantasy XV? It could potentially do a lot hurt. Especially in Japan, because I don't know if Western developers can nail the character design like Nomura and Amano have in the past.

But for a spin off game, or a new game in The Fabula Nova Crystallis Compilation, I think it couldn't hurt. I would love to see it happen but ONLY provided it wasn't a numbered iteration of Final Fantasy.

why Western developers? I thought we were talking about outsourcing to another jrpg developer.

hahaha, I immediately thought of Western Developers. But Well the title says "Another Developer" so that includes both Western and Japanese developers. But if you logically think about it, who would Square most likely license FF to considering their desired appeal to the Western Audience? I don't think they would just give it to just another Japanese developer.

it would be smart if SE gave a spin-off Final Fantasy to a different developer but wrote the story and overlooked the project.

it would be absolutely retarded to give a main Final Fantasy game to another developer. SE has a certain style to their FF games that i typically enjoy. Versus XIII will be amazing, but after that it'd be smart if they give a spin-off to someone else so they can concentrate on their more important projects. i don't think many people care about Final Fantasy Type-0.

Just get rid of toriyama!

I second that motion!

Burn him alive for this sacrilege, first FFX-2 then FF13 and he had to make things even worse with 13-2. I mean, he wrote the story of 3rd Birthday and look how he destroyed the Parasite Eve franchise in his first try and now he wants to do the same with FF. But FF is too big to die after a couple of bad games so there's still time, just get rid of him already! ;_;

He sucks as a director and he sucks even worse as a writer.

They let Level 5 make Dragon Quest 8.

Because they know they cant make the good sh*t.

I have lost faith in SE to make a good FF game anymore, they dont know the ingredients for a good FF. I wont list them here. But you can check what i think they are here:

They were trying it with GRiN, it just didn't work out.

Square gave the game the chopping blocks! at this point I think The team at square needs new talent!!

Mercury steam should get a crack at FF given the success of Lord of Shadows!!!

Lucretia2411d ago

unless it stays with nomura Nooooooooooo!

dark-hollow2411d ago

If only square-enix could get Hironobu Sakaguchi and numora on board for FFXV.

One can only dream...

fozzness2411d ago

Definitely agree although I fear as though the two of them are burnt out from all the FF titles they did in the past.. If they do another one... I want it to be because they want to. *nodnod*

Eamon2410d ago

A collab between Mistwalker and Square-Enix for Final Fantasy XV could actually revive the greatness the franchise was once known for.

BitbyDeath2411d ago

Sure, how bout SquareSoft develops them from now on?

fozzness2411d ago

Yea, I think ever since they became Enix it's gone down hill.. :(

Hawkhunter122411d ago

Squaresoft is dead folks. The Square and Enix merge, along with Sakaguchi leaving along with many other Square members, left Square-Enix into a company that will eventually rot away into who knows what.
