How Mothercrystals, Dominants, and Eikons fit into the world of Valisthea.
That is some gorgeous key art. I'm liking everything I'm reading about it too. Really hope this makes it out next year.
New FF is always an event!! This one seems to follow the design of ff12, a more mature installment.
I hope you're right!
I'm hopeful the tone & storytelling is similar. XII is my favorite, and part of that was how the story was actually pretty straightforward...for a FF game. No melodramatics for random side characters, no learning 100 new glossary terms to understand before the word soup makes sense (aka Kingdom Hearts Syndrome), clear motivations...I liked that the characters were in service to the overarching story, not the other way around. I would love for them to go back in that direction. XV was a fun game, but I didn't care a whit about the story or characters. I do like what I've seen so far, so I'll be keeping an eye on XVI for sure.
Personally I don’t like the setting or designs but that’s just preference. I’d be shocked if it makes a 2021 release with all the delays going on.
I'm so hyped for this entry. Just everything about it I'm loving.
This is Shaping up nicely. Keep the info coming, please!
Looks like 15 all over again... pass.

@UnSelf Haha glad to see someone who understood that reference XD
...it literally doesn't but ok.
This being exclusive was absolutely colossal. I’m STILL shocked. How do you get a mainline Final Fantasy exclusive in this day and age? Sony must have heard about the Zenimax deal before we did and needed to secure a huge RPG. Or maybe IF (cause I really don’t know) Sony still owns a portion of Square they went ahead and called in some favors or flexed whatever major share holder rights they have. Whatever the case, I’ll be on this minute one.
hopefully for me it still comes out on pc
Sony and Square Enix are pretty close friends. Similar to how Microsoft and Bethesda was close friends before that deal. Plus Final Fantasy traditionally does better on PlayStation than Xbox. It wouldn't take much work for Sony lock down marketing rights and exclusivity over Final Fantasy when you like at the last few that sold poorly on Xbox (FF XIII-2, Lightning Returns, FF XV, Type-0)
You do realize it is CONSOLE EXCLUSIVE meaning it will come to PC right? Edit: And XSX
console exclusive means it can come on PC but no other consoles. Did you mean timed console exclusive? Did they confirm what it was exactly?
It is a one year console-exclusive. Nothing more.
One year is a LONG time. Not the Yakuza couple months that we usually get with deals like that. This is a whole YEAR. By then anyone that wanted it would have had it AND it’s a mainline Final Fantasy. This isn’t some extra missions call of duty style.
Do you have a source on that besides one analyst's assumption?
whoa nelly, sir. It's console exclusive and even then I'm pretty sure it'll pull an FF7 Remake and be a timed exclusive at that.
I really wish the main guy was designed differently He looks like Noct
Please at least be on the same level as the FF 7 Remake, which shown that Square still has it after the train wreck that was FF XV. Rumors are a 2021 release.
FF is was dead with FF XV and now that they go the "versus" line again, it still is dead. This has nothing to do with Final Fantasy after all.
FF XIV has been praised for being a hell of a FF game despite being a MMO. And calling FF dead after they proved themselves with the VII Remake doesn't really work in your favor, dude. This can even be the game FF XII wish it was because of the SSD in the ps5 so they can build a large as world without zones.
I hope this one's great. I've been kinda feeling let down by the series since after 12 (No hate on 14 but MMOs aren't my thing) so I'd love a return to form. Imagine if it was as great as IX...
