The video is in Japanese so since I do not speak that language this didn't clear anything up. It looks like an Action RPG to me. Looks like Devil May Cry/Bayonetta fighting meets Final Fantasy.

I'm ever so sorry about that.

You do know that the people who make it are Japanese right? The world doesn't revolve around you.

And what part of the article said 'This video is here to clear up the confusion of retards'. I don't see that anywhere!

New Final Fantasy XV Video Shows The Fast-Paced Action Combat


Square Enix recently conducted a livestream of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and Final Fantasy XV. This livestream aimed to clear the confusion about the combat of Final Fantasy XV.

Any questions? That is directly from the article written right above the video. So....

Sort your attitude out. And you got schooled (yet again) by the chap above.

I'm not even sure what you mean , it was always announced as an action rpg . before and after it become officially FFXV

Honestly I like to think of it as the KH3 before the actual KH3. Similar playstyle.

In before all the complaints about it not being turn-based, like we didn't know that five years ago...

Edit: I can't see the vid on my phone, but from what I've seen before, it does have an action rpg vibe. Which is fine by me.

What I meant was that, for years, this game has been hailed as the savior of the franchise- if not the genre- by the very same people who yearned for a return to the turn-based combat of old. They were probably the same people who were in love with XIII before it released, then called it an abomination afterward without ever having played it.

Just tired of these anti-progression, whiny fans, that's all.

The author mentions the gameplay of FF12. I still own that game for my PS2 and it is one of my favorites because of the fighting style. If they gave it a little more action and strategy like Star Ocean games have then I think it could be cool. But this video looks like an Action RPG to me. What do you think?

Baka-akaB1504d ago (Edited 1504d ago )

The only thing that changed here , is that they took Versus and made it a main FF , after the massive delay for Versus , XIII , and generally poor opinion of the XIII series .

It was always a real time action rpg

Not clear yet. Does anyone know if the no-switching thing is only mid-battle? or does that mean you can only ever use Noctis in battle. I don't mind not being able to switch mid-battle, but if he's the only playable character for fighting gameplay, that'd be pretty weak.

Also, where's the cute girls at? We finally have an engine that can render really detailed people well in real-time, and it's all dudes, and all dressed in similar outfits at that.

I feel like it's a very last-genny battle system. The movements look very realistic (the staggering and such) but really, what's he really doing zipping around (probably with like L1) and attacking with X. The enemies stood there like it was dynasty warriors, there were no interactions with the other party members. And I want to see some Firaga and whatnot, seemed like people were using just physical weapons exclusively.

I don't know, just reminds me of last-gen. All flashy, no substance.

Roccetarius1504d ago

It's not like this could be Devil May Cry 3 or 4 in a RPG setting, but yeah, it does look last gen.

Actually, the swords surrounding him reminds me of Vergil, or even further back, Nelo Angelo.

AsheXII1504d ago (Edited 1504d ago )

There was a ton of interaction with party members in the TGS trailer, it looked beyond anything ive seen in an RPG.

This game looks super promising, so im not sure where you're getting the "last gen" feel of it.
