Square Enix Mystery Title is a New Final Fantasy Game

IGN Writes:

"Square Enix's teaser game was identified in advance today via the expected source: leaked scans from a major Japanese publication. The offender this time is Weekly Jump, which managed to get the scoop on Hikari no Yon Senshi: Final Fantasy Gaiden, or Four Warriors of Light: Final Fantasy Gaiden ("Gaiden" means "Side Story" -- but we're not sure if there's a need to translate it)."

If true awesome, old style FFs FTW!

Wonder what art style they'll go with?

man you should change the article picture, very misleading and heart breaking

Considering Yoshida will be doing the character art, either expect something along the lines of FFT (original) or they could go full-retro and make it look like older games (NES or SNES).

I was kind of hoping for a new game set in Ivalice, but this still works. Here's hoping that dragon actually gets to fight with you.

"Final Fantasy Gaiden is a DS RPG in which players take control of a 14-year-old boy tasked with saving a princess."


I know it's old school, but c'mon SE. Even NIS publishes more progressive games than that. Hoping to hear more.

@Spoony: Another article on here has the actual scan so you can see

Another ds game what a surprise. Ow and that ff7 picture got me so excited that i threw my laptop on the ground touchdown style. Damn........

So.... another DS game huh. I guess Squenix is become more of a DS developer.

This is a disappointing generation for JRPGs so far, no games that I will remember for years to come. Actually if you don't like shooters this is a disappointing generation all together.

Yer, when I meant art style I menat whether it would be like FFIV, Echoes of Time, DQ, Revenant Wings, Chocobo Tales even... they all look slightly different.

Wow to all the people angry it's a DS game, get over it, if you want to play RPGs get a portable and stop thinking only about one platform. The games should determine your favourite platform not the other way around.

EDIT: Thanks there Tony. and yer Storyline is definately old school but for originality I'm looking to Blood of Bahamut right now.

EDIT2: Ahh a kind of unique syle going on but similar to some of the other games on the DS.

I don't see how I didn't answer the question. While I was wrong on both accounts (looks like someone tried to take FF3 and make it cuter), Yoshida's known for making mature looking game art with a bit of medieval transcription style.

This game's teaser page had it looking like a blend between Ryoma Ito's FFTA2 and Yoshida's FFT... I was half expecting the game to be in 2D with the warriors of light still looking somewhat less cute (more like FFT's characters).

Oh yeh, I wasn't having a go at you, just pointing out that I meant the actual graphical style not the character design or artwork.

I'm not sure why you guys are upset that it's not next gen. Personally I would would have been ticked if it was. We have FF13 coming, and FF14 coming too, apparently. Versus is supposedly in the pipeline, but if they announced another next gen game, I would have seriously doubted that it was coming. And Versus is the game I'm most excited for.

3 upcoming next gen games is enough, even if they are all different.

another DS title? for god's sake SE.............

Pizzagaki3493d ago

The four warriors of light makes it sound like its actually final fantasy 1 or 2 in a new jacket.
It surely aint Secret of mana 1.

IGN is pretty creditable so this could get interesting.

Edit: another DS game!?!! not interesting!
