The initial reveal of Final Fantasy XVI seemingly paints a picture that is night and day with its predecessor, Final Fantasy XV.
"Final Fantasy XVI Seems Nothing Like FFXV," because it plays like DMC and that's not a good thing. spitting image of Nero's devil bringer @ 1:56 https://youtu.be/nDqsVSyb5T... same effect and all.
Your just mad because it's not on xbox.
it a time exclusive lol it coming to xbox just like FF7 remake just gotta wait.
@Sonyslave3 Where does it say coming out on Xbox? As of right now it’s PS5 and PC. Hell it could be PS4 or switch or even stadia. Not saying it doesn’t have a chance to come out on Xbox but your dead set it’s Xbox with out confirmation.
Cannot wait.. Every FF main episode is an event.. I hope it lives up to the expectations. Release 2021 pleaaaaase Sonyslave Crazy that you read console exclusive and you still assume it's not.. You people cannot even understand two of the most simplistic words put together..
I'm defintely going to play this, but I actually thought that trailer was really crap. It felt like it was edited by a 13 year old, and the OTT British accents were really annoying (and I'm British!)
Its timed exclusive and coming to pc. Why are gamers so anti consumer? You should want the option to play where ever u want no? The footage was running on pc as well
it said in the fine print that its timed exclsusive (the messaging different than demon souls), its 100% coming to xbox, but honestly looks supremely average with an uninspired setting.
the article listing says "PC PS4 PS5 Xbox One"
Final Fantasy XV is on PS4, XO & PC Final Fantasy XVI is on PS5 & PC
plus if you watch ps5 video it say coming to others consoles year later
@Sonyslave3 just watched it. You mean where it says console exclusive?* *Also available on PC
Gotta agree with RightFootGames, you just sound salty. "because it plays like DMC and that's not a good thing." If it does play like DMC I have no issues, DMC plays great in my opinion. "spitting image of Nero's devil bringer @ 1:56" lol, barely. Sure there are similarieties, but I'd hardly say that style/effect is exclusive to Nero
It is like XV. And XV should have been more like this. Gameplay looks fun
One could say it plays like Crisis Core.
Maybe this DMC combat designer can teach the guys at Square that people like to press the button instead of just holding it down and watching the game play itself.
looks game of thrones style and kinda mmo... more interested in the upcoming parts of ff7r.
I'd kill for a turn based RPG with Final Fantasy's budget again. A man can dream.
turn based is dead
That's why Persona 5 was so successful? Turn based is far from dead.
Persona says hello but turn base may be dead for Final Fantasy games.
The fact there are multiple series still doing very well while using it says otherwise.
Turn based doesn't really die, it just fell out of favor in mainstream for awhile. Chess is a turn based game and people still play it. Like the other guy said, megaten games are getting pretty damn big, and darkest dungeon was a big hit as well.
Well that genre is very limited when it comes to profits, except when it is called Pokemon, but with anything else companies would be lucky if they exceeds 3 millions of sales.
Play dragon quest 11
dragon quest doesn't have the same level of ambition as FF. It's turn based alright but it's missing the grandeur of the final fantasy games
I kind of like it. It’s different. Need to see more.
Reminds me of ff8.
Game not like Final Fantasy at all. FFXV fight was better than this. This gameplay have just action like Devil May Cry even Bayonetta. This is definitly not a Final Fantasy game. FFXV wasn`t and this one too. I`m huge FF fan by the way. After FFXIII still company going wrong direction on Final Fantasy brand.
"FFXV fight was better than this. This gameplay have just action like Devil May Cry even Bayonetta." Neither of them feels like Final Fantasy, but if I have to choose between DMC/Bayonetta gameplay or that confusing mess that was FFXV's battle system, I choose the former. If it's not going to be FF anymore, at least it should be fun, and FFXV surely wasn't.
It looks like ff7r fighting and that was really good imo.
Weird this seems to me exactly as Final Fantasy XII, but with more direct Action RPG controling.
At least FFXIII was turn-based & imo the mechanic was pretty good.
Nothing like FFXV? To me, it looks almost the same as FFXV, just less colorful blue particles. Similar fast paced flashy attacks, similar teleportation (dashing), even same looking animations. I mean, characters look a little bit similar (although, with less pointy hair styles). Doesn't mean it's a bad game, i do like that medival setting more than FFXV's industrial (just a personal preference though). But i completely disagree it «Seems Nothing Like FFXV» and that «That's a Good Thing», we don't know that yet, maybe it's bad. I know it's unpopular opinion, but i did enjoy FFXV gameplay and story up to a certain point (when they split the characters and were forcing you to buy the DLC if you want to know what happened to them).
At this point Final Fantasy is defined more by what makes each title different than the same.
Though to me FFXVI looks really good but from what was shown it looks like a hack n slash action game instead of a FF rpg. I'm hoping there's at least 3 in a party when fighting & hopefully female allies that fight as well.
I'm still hoping that it is still somewhat turnbase and what they have shown is just the animation after executimg the command.
it looks interesting to me.
they don't look like some emo k pop band, and that's a good thing
The combat looks similar to FFXV though. It's certainly not turn-based, looking at the battle with the Marlboro. The setting is different, sure, but even FFXV had a "kingdom vs. kingdom" aspect, and this seems to be that as well. I wouldn't say it's "nothing like XV".
Agree and disagree. I'm excited to see what this game brings but I still need to see more as it doesn't feel like a real FF title. Where as 15 quirks aside definitely did. i just hope Japan doesn't go chasing the western consumer and completely destroy their charm for imitation Witcher 3 drivel, they did that during the PS3/360 era and it didn't work out well for them
