Final Fantasy could come to Vita, if players are vocal enough, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata told IGN. If it were in his hands, a portable Final Fantasy game would be all about multiplayer.
"a portable Final Fantasy game would be all about multiplayer." Thanks but No Thanks
This whole thing with third party developers and the Vita is so hypocritical. PSP had Crisis Core and Dissidia and ended up selling over 70 million units. Square Enix, like every other third party developer, gives the Vita a port of a PS2 game. Then they raise their hands and claim "it's just doesn't have games!" or "it doesn't have enough sales!" Who the hell is going to buy a Vita for PS2 ports? Assassin's Creed, Uncharted and Call of Duty made original games and those have sold around 1 million units. Are these people aware of the phrase "self-fulfilling prophecy?"
Final Fantasy Type-0 had multiplayer. They should put Final Fantasy Type-0 on Vita. I wonder if they've thought about that.
They were going to as (I can't remember his name) in charge of the Vita Localization team tweeted he stayed up countless nights to get the ok from Square Enix and they told him that it was coming to Vita then they turned around and said PS4/XB1 only.
Dear Video Game Developers, We never stopped liking certain types of games, you just stopped making them. We can't buy, that which does not exist. * Make more Single player Tradition RGP's please. - Normal Random sword guy, no pervy boob characters, or annoying squeaky voiced anime characters. Just a traditional FF4 or Legend of Heroes type of game. ALL there are is Niche rpgs for Vita. Can we get a basic normal game.....just one even. I mean there is Ys....and then.............
I agree with what you said, except for the no pervy boob characters. Everybody likes boobs.
I agree except i don't want turn based gameplay, i like real time...
You'd think the success of Bravely Default would tell them that there is a market for classic JRPG's. Ys was awesome on the Vita, despite being a remake, it's one of the best games on there. Then P4G and god knows how many other JRPG's actually seem to be quite popular on the system. If I weren't a JRPG fan, I'd probably be disappointed in the Vita, but since I am, it has a lot to offer for me.
so you wouldn't mind a port of Final Fantasy Explorers on 3DS to Vita.
Just give us a real FF on Vita. No multiplayer spin off crap.
A new Dissidia on Vita would be awesome to see.
Boy. The one time I don't really need to read the full article to disagree with it. Also, in regards to wanting an RPG only to get a multiplayer game, the need to shout expletives for the next half hour... It is past time for me to give up on Square.
I'm surprised you, or other people didn't already. :P It has been a downward spiral for Square over time.
Not yet... I hate how Tabata is talking but still we get to play it in march. That is when you decide. Plus if you leave now you won't know if XV incorporates actual airship travel like versus promised. I remember you were really about to get mad if they didn't.
Except we're not talking about FF15. We're talking about some arrogant a-hole who's saying that if fans of a single player RPG franchise want a multiplayer entry on handheld platform, that they have to beg - buy - a console game. Again, haven't read the full article, the teaser paragraph was more than enough to seriously piss me off, but I'm detecting some major detached derangement going on. @Roccetarius: I only bought and played through most of FF13. Not FF13-2 or FF13-3. Was trying to give FF15 a chance - okay, honestly not much of one - but what with they're talking about now, there just isn't any point. Square isn't talking to me.
@godmars wanna agree 1000x
Portable final fantasy, yes please. If its a tactics game or something serious. Nothing like an android only game. Crisis core, type-0 etc, those types I'd love more of.
I would love Type-0 style game on the PSVita but i can see SE taking FF: All the bravest to the PSvita already....
Later perhaps. For now, just finish that almost-a-decade-in-development Final Fantasy XV. B-)
Lol, what a load of bull SE - All this years a lot of vita owner demands an english ver. of Type-0 on vita. But what SE did for those vita owners? Gave the middle finger for two years and suddenly put the game for PS4/X1. Hell, they even took down fans site who translated Type-0 without asking for money. - FF X/X-2 remaster had good sales on vita. But what SE did for those vita owners? Porting the crappy F2P Agito.
Screw that , people were vocal about FF 0 on vita , and instead you brought it on PS4 . And they didnt do it "for the fans" , they are bleeding money and it shows , with decisions reeking of despair like , Tomb raider exclusivity , trying to milk Sleeping dogs as a f2p game to get investment back , a fricking bike ff 7 game , tons of ports even mobile games on vita and 3ds etc etc And if you're going to focus on mp , i just wont care . I get handhelds precisely to play as i see fit everywhere i go , be it in small or big sessions ... not to be forced into mp
I personally think that Square Enix themselves gave up on making PS Vita games for us, particularly localising FF Type-0 in English for PS Vita when people are actually being vocal about it.
MP is a big thing on Playstation portables in Japan, so I understand his perspective. However, us western gamers (just a personal assumption) probably want a story-driven handheld game, that is 30-40hrs long, and has 15-20hrs extra content. Graphics can be a little bit above mediocre as long as the scenario writing, script and gameplay is excellent. Just give us something like Crisis Core with a turn-based system (so we don't have to hurry our decisions on the go).
I bought Crisis Core and Kingdom Hearts BBS on PSP! I bought FFX/FFX-2 on Vita... what more do you want SE?! Release it and I'll bite.
Yes! Except crappy phone ftp apps without good interesting content,,,
do vita fans trust se or any companies anymore? we have been begging for a type0 localisation or vita port. that didnt happen, favoured nx gen so demo of xv can be released to boost sales. agito returns to mobile platforms and then gets added to vita. but probably a game nobody wants. constantly favouring nintendo handhelds when they could easily make a port.
I trust Atlus and NISA. Other than that, I don't really look forward to or expect anything from any publisher.
since when has fan demand meant anything to square enix. now heres ff7 g bike and ff type-0
Dissidia 3 would be a nice start. Or you could even start making spin-offs of your main series to put on the Vita. HECK, you could put Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles games remastered on the Vita & that'd sell a fair amount. Or Final Fantasy Adventures. You have to put games on the system for your games to sell on the system in the first place, instead of assuming sales.
NO ONE wants a multiplayer Final Fantasy portable.
Ehh, better at least have single player.
Square-Enix doesn't care what fans demand otherwise FFvs13 would've been released on PS3 by now instead of being gimped and turned into FFXV with clunky combat mechanics and low FPS. S-E needs to quickly sweep this failure of a FF under the rug as soon as possible and start working on FF16 (preferably with a schedule they can stick to this time). Of course, I'm sure they plan on pumping out more mediocre sequels to FFXV like FFXV-2 and FFXV-3.
