Final Fantasy Brand Manager Shinji Hashimoto goes into full teasing mode, mentioning that 2018 will be a "big year" for the franchise.
Keeping my expectations low but surprises are welcome.
Will FFXVI get announced next year?
I actually think it's a huge likeliness that Final Fantasy 14 is going to come to the Nintendo switch, Final Fantasy VII remake part 1 is going to release fall of next year, Final Fantasy 16 is going to be announced.
A whole bunch of mobile games and an estimated time frame for FFVII remake that will most definitely miss.
With woff coming to mobile and ignoring sony...yeah, i hope they dont announce ff16 til fg7r is out the gates and on a healthy time schedule
Well considering they're probably going to be made by different teams I actually don't think it's as relevant as you might think.
I feel like they say this every year... Anyway, hopefully this means VII Remake details, X-3, and XVI.
We don't need X-3...X-2 was trash enough. Details on 7 remake would be nice, like a release date on EP1. XVI they should wait until it's close to completion, not 10 years too early.
X-2 rocks, and Shinji Hashimoto has already basically said that they're going to make X-3. Also Motomu Toriyama has been working on something for ages which might just be X-3. As for XVI, there's rumors that Hiroyuki Ito and his team have been secretly working on it for a long time. If this is true, an announcement next year would make perfect sense.
X-3 still isn't needed. X-2 was not only trash and a weeaboo's wet dream of anime girl dress up but it also ruined the ending of X which may not be the best of the best FF games but it was still really fun and had a great ending. Waste of time.
Well X is probably my favorite Final Fantasy game, but you're definitely not giving X-2 enough credit. Great music, great battle system, good story, good voice work, and an excuse to return to Spira. I'm no weeaboo, but I love X-2. Sounds to me like you might not have given it the chance it deserves. I've played it to 100% completion like twice. It's not as good as X, but it's still good.
*yawn* Judging by your last 10 years or so? You'll forgive me if I kindly don't give a crap. SE has released nothing but garbage from their internal studios, FF included. They're lucky they scooped up Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal. Nothing like "buying" your competence I suppose.
Will probably just be mobile games and ports. Kh3 is all I need from square next year. No way ff7r will release that year and doubt 16 will be announced.
How about a FFVII: Crisis Core with updated graphics and cinematics (like FFXII Zodiac Age) please??!! So close to PSX 2017. Is this a coincidence or may there be some big surprises related to final fantasy at PSX 2017. Tune in next Saturday to find out!
Are they going remove the Korean boy band haircuts from every game?
I expect Final Fantasy which is released next year, to maybe have a unannounced DLC or special announcement like a port to the switch or PC. Noctus (FFXV) is coming to Tekken 7 next year, maybe another FF special guest somewhere. FFVIII HD Port coming to PS4, maybe even an FFXIII Trilogy HD Remaster port to PS4 as well as FFVII remake announcements details and release date, etc.
If it’s the first episode of the final fantasy 7 remake I’m expecting a huge negative reaction.
