The Current State Of Final Fantasy

The last we heard of Final Fantasy was at the Tokyo Game Show this past month. The event basically had next to nothing new for Final Fantasy players. Square Enix, the developer of Final Fantasy, on the other hand has decided to jump on the Super Smash Bros. bandwagon that so many other developers have done before. Square Enix's being Dissidia: Final Fantasy, wherein they're pitting the lead characters and villains from the main series against each other in one-on-one battles in yet another off-shoot Final Fantasy title.

This however is not the Final Fantasy most fans are craving for. That would be Final Fantasy XIII, and the wait for it has been a very long and one-sided one for fans. The title was announced over two and a half years ago, and is projected to not hit shelves in North America until this time next year.

It's time to delve into what's going on with Final Fantasy, so hit the jump to read more.

I can't wait for ff13! glad everyone will be able to enjoy this game.

Keep politics out of this.

Hopefully, FFXIII will be great and not one of those games that feel half-a$$.

fury5325d ago

I really miss JRPGs in this current gen. I think ff13 will actually be one of the few RPGs that will deliver.

Final Fantasy and half-assed = that does not match

UltimateIdiot9115325d ago

Well, I hope that's not the case. SE is becoming more and more like EA.
I have to admit though, recently, EA is picking up and actually has spark some interest again.

Actualy Square did an FF Fighter way back in the ps1 days called ehrgeiz back in 1999 which predates SSBB and SSBM. They hopped on no bandwagon sir, started a trend is more like it.

I looks forward to Dissidia and sadly the game most FF fans are waiting for is an FF7 next gen title. That tech demo was the worse tease.

Edit: True for me the games value came from those FF character inclusions. I am proof that marketing tactic worked lol.

SE is pissing fans off with there closed mega theaters too.

mephman5325d ago

That's semi-true. Ehrgeiz was a title in its own right with its own story and cast - Ken "Godhand" Mishima anyone?

They just included a few Final Fantasy VII characters to try and boost sales.

Peter Griffin5325d ago

til this day i cant properly pronounce the name of that title smh

Square Enix is becoming the next Atari or Midway while Level 5 is the next Square Enix.

Danja5325d ago

I still care about this game I really dont care that they sold out to M$ , aslong they actually finish the game before this gen is over , lol seems at the rate there going this game wont be out till the PS4 launch..

Im more excited for KH3 though

Level 5 is actually the best RPG devs btw..!!

Homicide5325d ago

No JRPG can compare to Final Fantasy in terms of epicness and presentation. Let's hope some gameplay footage is shown before the year.
