Very cool. Love the original, hopefully this means a sequel is coming.

Sonyslave3527d ago

I remember reading an article saying the creator of this game is developing a new game.

RealOldGamer527d ago

Cool. Hopefully its a sequel and not a new IP.

Brave_Losers_Unite527d ago


I disagree. New IP or sequel is fine

Imalwaysright527d ago

You got disagrees but you're right

Don't know if this means that he is making Lost Odyssey 2 but whatever he's making, hopefully isn't a mobile game and is a proper JRPG.

Obscure_Observer526d ago

Hell yeah! Xbox is getting better and better! Good job Phil!

mikeslemonade526d ago

This is literally the last jrpg that I liked. I would get LO2 on PC.

This is exciting news, I enjoyed the first. Finished it for the first time on Xbox One via BC when it was on Games with Gold

Lonnie18526d ago

Dude this is obviously what they will be having Ninja Theory working on...what a waste.

Mystogan526d ago

Huh? JRPG is not exactly up Ninja Theories alley...

So what do you mean obviously?

-Foxtrot527d ago

Finally. The first one was amazing, the true Final Fantasy 13 of last gen

Just a shame they did nothing with it sooner, I wish Hironobu Sakaguchi didn't have beef with Ken Kutaragi as being multiplatform might have gotten a sequel out earlier.

Final Fantasy 13 sucked so idk what youre getting at

-Foxtrot527d ago

That’s my point

It sucked and Lost Odyssey filled that role

Godmars290527d ago

"Lost Odyssey filled that role."

Given that few played it, that overall it failed to have any real impact except for being on the Xbox, no it didn't.

More to the point, not really knowing what MS plans are regarding game development while not giving up on the idea of GaaS, would not expect this to be a 100% good thing.

coolbeans526d ago

You're twisting the intentions of his Foxtrot's words to rebuke the point. It's quite obvious that "filling a role" in this case is connected to the idea of getting the classic Final Fantasy 'fix' where the main FF games went astray--either in respect to aesthetics, narrative, or gameplay (most obviously).

Taking the sales route to invalidate the point has become as banal as ukulele overuse from new indie bands.

Godmars290526d ago

Sales and the fact that nothing of significance has been done with the IP are the only true measures to regard it. That Sakaguchi made it just says Sakaguchi made it.

If MS does make a new game but hand it off to a new studio, then what does that do? What value would it have as a FF game?

Hotabang526d ago

@Godmars290 stop, you are making yourself look worse by each post XD

Godmars290526d ago (Edited 526d ago )

As someone who declares "The Emperor Has No Clothes" on a sadly increasingly regular basis, having been called out as both PS and Xbox fanboy and receiving some of the the most idiotic/threatening PMs, a few latter apologies, I've gotten use to it.

And the true point here is that only MS can prove me wrong by actually doing something. And even then when DMC5 is getting MTs and the Beyond Good and Evil "sequel" requires a constant online connection when they've been one of the leaders in such things. Not to mention MS have adamantly been against SP/RPGs even when announcing support for them. Revoked that support as soon as announce it.

It's like you've done nothing to rebut my response or Foxtrot's original intention in order to just pound your fists down once more. That LO 'only' made close to 1 million sales and didn't receive a sequel just says something about its iffy financial state which, AGAIN, wasn't the drive behind Fox's 'the true Final Fantasy 13 of last gen/filled a role' declarations to begin with.

-"And the true point here is that only MS can prove me wrong by actually doing something."

If that's the stance then you've really lost the plot and are just content with digging your heels in more than anything else. I mean...this demand seems so foreign in the context of what we're talking about. This whole branch of the conversation is about LO's mechanical/gameplay success compared to that of the FF13 games of the previous gen (according to certain fans). As far as what I've heard from various FF fans, there is more in line here with what the 'classic' FF's accomplished for them back in the day.

To be contorting the whole conversation to fit YOUR revised standard of what 'filling a role' means in this context is what's getting you in hot water. And to carry this presumptuous attitude of when you'll be considered 'wrong' in this discussion looks all the more embarrassing.

Looks like we have some Grinches in this comment section with the downvote button, lol

Donnie81526d ago

There’s always grinches in the Xbox comment section on n4g

SegaGamer526d ago

Very true. It's gotten stupid just how much every comment on an Xbox article is getting downvoted.


Very true and I’ve noticed the mods don’t do anything about the trolling on Xbox articles. I wonder why that is...

bluefox755527d ago

Wouldn't mind a remaster of the original.

kevnb527d ago (Edited 527d ago )

doesnt really need it (although I'm not sure what a remaster even is, other than a marketing term), just bump up the resolution and it will look amazing. Even at 720p it pushed the 360 past its limits, on the xbox one s/x its a very nice experience even today!

bluefox755527d ago (Edited 527d ago )

I'd be happy with a PC version so I could play it at 60fps. Even the X version has minor frame dips below 30.

mcstorm527d ago

I do wonder if Microsoft look at original xbox games played on the Xbox one and via game pass to look at what ips to bring back from the original xbox and 360 days. Intresting times for the Xbox and I do wonder how many new and returning ips we will see.

ShadowWolf712527d ago

Every company does this unless they want a property going Public Domain though. Doesn't necessarily mean too much.
