Developer Creative Business Unit III is behind both of these games.
Square Enix president Takashi Kiryu provided an official statement on Final Fantasy XVI's sales and mentioned interesting plans for smaller IPs.
Well that kills a huge narrative... https://n4g.com/news/256644...
We'll you'd think the announcement of DLC would have hinted at that. If the game did poorly they would have just moved on. And if you bring up Forespoken DLC they sold a season pass at launch and had to do it.
That article should have never been approved to begin with, since stock market "news" is invalid on N4G. It's also based on the literal fake news alleging that Kiryu-san said that FFXIV's sales disappointed. I've been saying that was fake news for ages (the distortion was obvious like the sun), and today we got the receipts. Unfortunately, the many sites that ran away with that narrative without doing a shred of research will get away with it because they always do.
Wait for that Takashi Mochizuki spin!
Go FFXVI. I wonder what small IP they have in mind. I would love a Parasite Eve game that plays like the RERemakes and keeps the survival horror tone.
More stsr oceans. Please
We just got divine force and second story R(demo is on psn by the way) out in nov. But i would like to see a AAA star ocean that looks as good as FFXVI or FF7R.
O yea. I got my star ocean 2 paid off, just playing the waiting game. I played 10 minutes of the demo and deleted it. Seen all I need to see. Put about 250 plus hours into divine force. It would be dope as hell if a star ocean got the ff treatment.
Give me more PE please! I never got to play "the third birthday" but I would love to see the series revamped.
Don't try the third birthday. It's as much Parasite eve as Dino crisis 3 is Dino Crisis. The RE games sell well so i don't know why they won't make a PE game in the same style. Diversify their portfolio.
This ongoing saga hurts my brain. The game sold 3 million at launch. Case closed. The game sold great.
Everyone knew the sales were great, the problem is that Square-Enix wants the sales of 1 game to be a tentpole supporting a dozen other failures. That is a fairly difficult and unfair standard of success.
But they really don't. They never said they were disappointing to begin with. That was fake news,
If only square would realize that ps owners like some of these smaller games they keep shoveling to switch only.
I like how they tgat sounds of the making other existing games into AAA. Meaning star ocean, valkyrie, etc into AAA budget. Guess they seen its hard to make a new good one going by forspoken so they he wanna focus on existing titles.
Forspoken was a great game. If you've never actually played it you should give it a try for yourself. Just like everyone who hasn't played it but likes to pretend they have.
Never said it was bad, I liked the demo and was one of the ones defending it. I was saying they seen the reaction to forspoken a new IP and know they better off sticking with current IP and not taking the risk again.
No doubt. That last part wasn't really directed @ u lol. But you should play the whole game if you haven't, the demo was not a great representation. It's addicting and fun. I'm playin on very hard n it's a good challenge.
You know i really do hope it didn’t meet the expectations so that they never make an FF game like this again, easily the most disappointing and boring game i played in at least two years and i love FF games.. this game is not an FF game in any way shape or form. Also “in line with expectations” sounds a bit weird to me.. yeah the game definitely fell a bit short of their expectations.
For me who played every single Final Fantasy game and spinoff, FFXVI for me is one of the best FF-games.
More than FFXV?
I mean levii92isnt wrong. It seemed a far cry from a ff game. Couldn't even do elemental damage. Wtf kinda rpg.
I mean people said the same thing about 12 when it launched in the west and it now is revered as one of the best Final Fantasy games for its deep story and leveling system.
Dicky, i usually see the one that revere 12 that would've been old enough where it would be one of their first ff games. I've even see some say ff13 is. I still feel 6 through 9 are gold status , 10 was real good to but that's when it started getting that different. Still really liked 10.
Twelve is easily my favorite final fantasy game and it is nothing like anything else in the series. Id take more FFXVI as well though.
Since they’re planning two DLCs, I’d say you’re out of luck as far as wishing “they never make an FF game like this again…”
speak for yourself man. From start to finish the game for me was all great, my only gripe is the ending.
Square enix can be a god with games and make tons of money,but they make some stupid decisions with some games.
