Tetsuya Nomura on Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy XV and next gen game development

Edge:The day after Square revealed Kingdom Hearts 3 and the unexpected fate of Final Fantasy Versus XIII during Sony’s E3 conference, we caught up with Tetsuya Nomura, director of each title, to quiz him on his freshly-announced titles. We’ve already published Nomura’s explanation of why Square turned Versus XIII into Final Fantasy XV – read on for more detail on why the developer appeared at Sony’s conference rather than Microsoft’s, and what next gen means for Nomura.

To early to have shown kh3
Versus looks great (Shame that its going to be an easy game :/ and not classic ff hard)
Hopefully they will do a turn based ff for the next one, thing I like about ff is they redesign each new numeral so it has its own feel.

Strange that I could pick up any ff numeral and know how the controls and system works instantly.

SE is known for showing early games in their development, but you know it's the fact that it's being worked on that matters.

Kingdom Hearts 3 & Final Fantasy XV will be Action-MMORPG.

Square Enix Financial is still next to Bankruptcy;

Square Enix needs funding, lots of funding.

How do you know it's easy?
I get the same feeling but I really hope it is a tad bit challenging.

Edit: Ah I get it, I haven't seen the interview, i'll check it out

The teleporting part seems broken as hell. I bet they will put restrictions or kinda like stamina bar

Go on game trailers and look at the se interview pt 1, he says it won't challenging. I am at work so can't grab the link

I really think KH3 should of been a SONY only game. Not just saying that to be a fan boy or anything but more of a sense of Xbox owners might of never played the other ones so STORY wise there going to be SUPER confused as to what is going on. This just feels wrong is all. Like it was not meant to be. Might just be me, but I grew up playing the games on a SONY system and nothing else.

They probably arent gonna get the HD collections either. Its gonna bomb on X1, lol.

TheEvilWithin1948d ago

That's the other thing. He stated that the HD remixes were coming to playstation and no mention of the 360. So I think people are just going to kind of be like huh??? What is happening and why is this happening. I guess if X180 fans care enough about the game they can always Wiki it.
