CC: Last month Ubisoft revealed that they wanted to break the Japanese market with a major RPG "on the same level as Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest" - It seems that that plan is in action already.
Watch out Final Fantasy...
Yea how many have tried being final fantasy and failed.
final fantasy and dragon quest? ubisoft is aiming s little too high if you ask me whatever jrpg they come out with it won't be a smash hit
Why would ubisoft aim too high? Ubisoft produced countless western Top games, if they get the right people together they can get it done, Money aint no issue to Ubisoft.
This guy is talkin' out of his ass, no chance in hell square is letting final fantasy franchise go, the last 2 games have been somewhat mediocre, their sales have still been strong so why the hell would they stop making them?
FF just can't live up to expectations right now. I'm looking forward to FFvsXIII though.
You re talking about, but fo me ffxiii was sleek, way better than ff xii...(thinking, what in ff xii abound lack in ff xiii...coincidence uh¿?)anyway the game play wise was smooth(best style on the whole rpg franchises imo)in fact it does live up to a good while rpg experience, but already hearing that they indeed did cut off some part to achieve a wise(clearly low) size for fit it(certainly in mults dvds) didnt sound nice at all. EDit : Yp`sound like xbox indeed had to do with the cut off!!!!leading to its actual linearity. LAME
RPGs are always good. We've been lacking them this generation.
couldnt have said it better myself. especially since i just now got my first job and i can actually afford a few more games.
Doesn't sound like a JRPG. More like a French-Canadian Chinese RPG. A FCCRPG if you will.
The more the merrier
You can't break into the japanese market with a wrpg. It has to be jrpg and I don't think Ubisoft is capable of making a decent one; that is unless it hires all the talents from Japan.
How about they actually finish the games they have in development…like the recently delayed (again) Splinter Cell: Conviction and R.U.S.E!
I doubt very much that Ubisoft will be able to make a game that is on the level of FF and DW...I dont see that happening at all...and i mean no disrespect to them at all. I feel as thought them delving into the RPG genre with such a grand purpose is a VERY good thing, and other developers should be doing the same. FF and DW series can only be mimicked at this point in time, just like Zelda, Metal Gear, and all the other games that have been around for generations, as opposed to a game like Halo thats been around only a few years. Whatever this project is, I will support it.
It could be a "Lunar" game. I think they have the publishing rights to that one. That could be big. I know the past Lunar games were pretty stellar. Except for Dragon Song. Who wants to lose life when running?
Come on Ubi...you know you want to.
Seriously. Thats all I can think of after reading it. Granted, its Ubisoft, not Bioware. And China, not Japan. But still. I can dream
i hope they make an indian rpg
Last time i heard they were gng to make a football game?
If anyone can it's Ubisoft. Although I'd like to see Rockstar make a JRPG :D Should be funny.
