Tetsuya Nomura has confirmed that a rough plot synopsis exists for Final Fantasy X-3. FF7 Remake director Motomu Toriyama says it could happen someday.
Can we not have IX-2 or VIII-2 instead
Have to agree in some regard. X is among my least favorite entries. Enjoyed it more than VIII but not more than IX or XII
Bizarre. VIII was the best in the series.
@DarthMarvin Bizarre. With peculiar junction system, magic drawing from enemies, and Rinoa suddenly fell in love to Squall make VIII one of the worst Final Fantasy.
@Melankolis Oh but Cloud falling for Arieth for the short time she was in the game is so believable? Not a peep out of people over that. Rinoa and Squalls relation developed over the entire game, they were teenagers and they acted like it. By the way, once again you didn’t need to draw magic in battle. You had draw points, item refinement and card refinement
Indeed, an VIII-2 would be most welcome. I enjoyed X, for the most part, but didn't see much reason for X-2 let alone an X-3.
This is old news, but it's nice to hear that SE haven't forgotten about it or brushed it under the carpet. Seems like it could definitely happen someday.
VII Remake is pretty good... despite Nomura's meddling. Let's hope some of these mysterious Square employees continue to prop this hack up for X-2's development
Nomura & kitase’s “meding” has been genius thus far. So glad they did not stick to the original script. It is a win win for everyone. Unless you don’t like Zack for example.
I am specifically referring to the over the top Kingdom Hearts style boss fight at the end, but I wouldn't say I am thrilled about the Zack thing either. I can live with these changes though. I personally think that it was Hamaguchi was the main driving force behind Remake's success. If I am not mistaken he was responsible for the overhaul to the game's combat.
what you consider "Nomura's meddling" is probably not even his idea
I’d rather FF stick to not doing sequels to an entry in the series. X-2 and 13-2, 13-3 weren’t exactly phenomenal.
XIII-2 was easily the best in the trilogy.
Someday...like 10 to 20 years.
As long as Jecht and Auron can be brought back to life, so we can play as them I'm game. Also make Blitzball have a solo game. That game was a blast and I'd enjoy playing a new version. Throw in online play, like you do when you play Card games online and Square Enix will have a hit on their hands.
As much as FFX is my favorite entry in the franchise I love the game I played X-2 I was on the fence with it. To pull off the true ending is a pain in the ass. As for X-3 I knew about X-3 a long time ago I would get the game if the game came out I would collect it just because it's based around FFX. I played FF13-2 and 13-3 I was also on the fence with them. Only side story/prequel/sequel Final Fantasy game I loved was Crisis Core I would love it if that game came to console Dirge of Cerberus was also a game I was on the fence as well. I'd rather have an new FF game that was actually good I don't count the FF online games but anything after FFX has a mix feeling between gamers FF12 people either like it or hate it same goes with FF13 and FF15.
They already ruined FF7 story, we don't need them ruining FFX's story, too. If the short novel released a few years ago (where Tidus kept killing himself by doing crazy things since he's basically immortal for being a summon, and Yuna tired of bringing him back) showed anything, is that they should leave this story alone. A prequel with Auron, Jecht and Braska would be interesting though, as long as they kept a single timeline and respect the lore, and not the multiple timelines shenanigans FF7 Remake did.
As long as it doesn't follow the plot of that crap audio drama, swell. But I think the perfect ending of 2 wrapped up things just fine.
It's like the world war 3 of video games
Let’s hope not X was the worst of the serie and XIII
I've owned a physical copy and even bought the HD remaster but I've never really played X-2 . I played probably 15 minutes when I initially bought it and was like "Nope" . To me FFX is a perfect stand alone title as it is with a perfect ending that doesn't need to be convolutedly coarse corrected . To me most of the older games don't need remakes or sequels , I think games like FF8/9/10 could be perfectly retold as a 3 season anime
they haven't made a good story since squaresoft days. don't get your hopes up.
