Following the reveal of Final Fantasy XVI during the PlayStation 5 showcase, Square Enix sent a press release with more details.
It’d be great if this game had a different character designer for a nice change of pace We haven’t had a non-MMO entry without Nomura’s designs since FFXII
This is not Nomura. You can clearly see it's not made by him but the same dude that made the FF XIV one.
"Considering that only the director and producer of this game are the only named developers on this project thus far that’d be only positions you’d be talking about in response to my comment." No, I'm talking about character designs, you know, the first thing you wrote... Are you an idiot or something? Let me quote you again. "It’d be great if this game had a different character designer for a nice change of pace We haven’t had a non-MMO entry without Nomura’s designs since FFXII"
I said character designer not director. Nomura doesn’t have to be the director to create characters for a game as was the case with FFVII, FFVIII, FFX, & FFXIII
Where did I say director? Not my problem that you jump to your own conclusions.
Considering that only the director and producer of this game are the only named developers on this project thus far that’d be only positions you’d be talking about in response to my comment. Unless you’re going to say you only indirectly brought up Yoshida & Takai in a way that doesn’t relate to their positions on this game but does somehow relate to this game’s unnamed art director 😑
Am I the only one who finds this emo-half eye covered "I Slit my Wrist" Haircut god-awful?
You must be new to Japanese games if you're not familiar with the cringe hairstyles of emo protagonists. Just have a good laugh at their absurdity and move past it...or get to the point I'm at where you don't even notice it anymore and need someone to point it out to you.
This guy saved ff14. Cant wait to see what he can do for a singleplayer focused main entry ff game :)
Pretty much what I said to my friend while discussing this. After 13, 13-2, 13-3, and 15 I think SE needs to defer to a more well liked director and safe bet.
For real. Nomura has tanked the franchise.
I didn't see any sign of Party members when the combat was happening. I really hope they didn't ditch that aspect of the game. I am beyond happy they didn't announce another MMO but I hope there is some final fantasy left in the game. Did anyone happen to catch the main characters name? I thought I heard his brother's name said but never his unless I mixed it up.
No party members, no buy. They've abandoned enough of what made this franchise great.
Yep... I'm not feeling the character design, TBH. Also, where are my females?
I really wish Jaqen H'ghar actor somehow appear in this game. I really mean it.
At first I thought I was watching a Final Fantasy Online thing here cause of the character face design , but when they start talking more than the usual so start thinking this is not an online game and bang !! FFXVI sequel, out of nowhere!, what a nice surprise Sony thank you so much, this is why Playstation is the best always delivering awesome surprises to the gamers!! :D
maybe you could thank square enix a little idk since they're the ones making the game
true, really surprising seeing Square Enix announced a full sequel of their franchise so quick, I mean usually takes several years to even announce something from them.
Yeah I was a little surprised too. Hopefully they've found ways of increasing their output.
SE probably wanted to work with the PS5 on this one too, with a PC port planned later on. They can probably do a lot more if the PS5 is the lowest common denominator than if the XSS is. I wouldn't be surprised if more studios feel the same way, though whether they choose to develop PS5 console exclusives for that reason largely depends on how well the XSX and XSS end up doing in relation to the PS5.
