Square Enix reports that a direct sequel to the latest Final Fantasy Games will comes for the current consoles, but spin offs for handhelds.
HOT HOT HOT! CANT WAIT :D
Lets not get too excited. It has just as much potential to be bad as it does to be good. It's not square from the 90s.
Agreed, I've lost a lot of respect for SE this generation. They're just not like they were like you said in the 90's. I've turned my attention to developers like Atlus and From software, to fill there void...
I wont get excited for it since SE has been a let down but dont blame this generation. Downhill began when they went from Squaresoft to Squere Enix. That was in the transition from FFX to FFXII. FFXII was a good game but the gambits showed an almost control free game with AI leading the gambits orders. Little control but still some control. In XIII the X button did wonders alone wich was a shame.
I really hate this Google translate crap. You can't understand a damn thing and considering a Real source hasn't reported on this it's hard to take it serious without real details that make sense. I mean it is misleading just because of the translation. It says SE said the next final fantasy will be for home consoles. But that doesn't mean PS3 Xbox 360 and Wii U it could mean the next gen as those would still be home consoles. What did SE really say? Who knows this translation sure doesn't help.
Yea it makes me question how reliable this is. Is there any other source I can read cause this english makes no sense.
I agree with you on principle, but this could be a REAL source in that country.
MAN THEY ARE TALKING BOUTA XV AND VERSUs AINT OUT YET? FCK U SQUARE ENIX, wtfffff, just die die die die.
Squaresoft was awesome!!!!! Square Enix?????? not so good. since the merger the games have gone down hill gameplay and quality wise too bad because I loved Enix and Squaresoft. Sometimes megers ruin everything. :(
could be a deal, if Final Fantasy XIII-2 is going to be good!
FF Versus XIII is not there but they talk about FF XV.. :D
Seriously, where is Versus?
TGS. The mastermind Nomura must show something at TGS.
Ya...then at TGS they announce Versus is delayed and FFXIII-3 is announced. Serious SE...you wonder why your company is going down in value every year. How about you release the game this century.
No Versus lol what the hell is wrong with SE?
Yea just like everyone else said it'll probably be at TGS. I'm pretty sure Nomura said that if it wasn't at E3 it would defintely be at TGS.
I thought forum posts weren't allowed for news submissions? How is this not a forum post?
i need tactics give it to me
Most of the spinoffs are generally on the handhelds currently anyway. Still, it's good to know we won't have to wait 'til next console generation for XV.
It better be a return to the old style, not this new... stuff...
great, but they need to release XIII-2, versus XIII, XIV, and type-0 first!
What if Wada secretely had Nomura executed by the Yakuza? I mean, his ideas DO outshine Wada's "vision" and we all know Wada is an evil man. We haven't heard from Versus in a while, what if Nomura's dead? jk obviously, im sure he's alive and well and is currently working on the game but it's been so long without even the slightest hint of an update.
Why don't they just make FF13 Versus into FF15 when they give an actual release date. It would put a lot of attention on the game and get people talking about it since the wait have made people...less interested in it.
I think this gen started bad for them, but they are making a turn with effort.
What are you basing that on? Their last major release was Final Fantasy XIV.
Well in terms of handhelds they rule supreme. Fantastic work. On the home consols FFXIII had so much potential, which will be met from what we've seen from FFXIII-2 interviews and gameplay videos, its a huge improvement and a game filled with content. Versus XIII is showing to be amazing and unique FFXIV is receiving a major rebuild through direct feedback. Everything sounds great to me.
Using positivity and optimism. You've mastered the art of the troll
i give up on Square Enix.... mentioning games, when others havent even been shown. WTF are they thinking? i think its time i moved on and hold on to the memories of what was once a great game dev.
No one mentioned games. Just another proof of how biased and misinformed the SE haters are. They said the next iteration of FF (which we all know is coming some day) will be on consoles and not handhelds. How about next time you stop, read the article, and think before posting.
this, said exactly what i was going to say.
yeah they did, im not talking about this article... im talking about all the other games they are "supposedly" working on.... just the thought of another game slowing down the process of the others is ridiculous... im not hating on SE but if you cant admit that the quality of their games has dropped waaaaay off then i dont know what to say to you. edit: based on your other comments i see you are standing with them no matter what... never mind.
why don't they finish the one they are already doing? i mean, they have now 3 final fantasies to do, at least 1 kingdom hearts, handheld spin-offs (if this is true, then there are at least 2 spin-offs on the making)... i think the folks with PS3 are waiting for versus since when? since launch? this is ridiculous...
they are still working on 4 FF games at the same time and they are already announcing more... This is not a good thing but the brainwashed fans don't even care about the quality, they just see the brand and start buying like zombies. Thanks to those blind followers is that the quality on Square games is dropping more and more with each passing day.
is what i call the "cod effect" it doesn't matter if it's good or not, everyone will buy it just because is a recognized brand...
ahahaha I love it the "CoD effect" so true. New generation of gamers(I'm talkin like 10 year olds) don't know what a Final Fantasy game should look like they just know the big name and Wada knows this(he worked for a big bank in Japan after all) that people will always buy into the Final Fantasy name good or bad.
Square Enix lost me forever
Just give them chance with Versus XIII. If they also fail with it. Me and FF fans with u.
*sarcasm* I so didn't see that one coming. *sarcasm end* Still a bit excited for it though!
Ok, forum post, news? no
its not a forum post, just go the the frontpage, then you'll see more.. :)
Maybe you should have linked it like that then? When i go to the "source", i expect to be looking at the source.
For real? Why don't you finish like even just half of the titles you have Squeenix before doing this. Idiots.
Oooo interesting. Gotta agree with Nate-Dog mind, they really ought to finish what they have first.
Oh no, they better not follow the same universe as FF13, that shit is humiliating for the SquareEnix brand. I miss square when it was back in the 90's.
Square has yet to make a good JRPG this gen as far as I'm concerned. I don't see why they'd start now.
What happened to Versus XIII? Or the Final Fantasy VII Compilation series? Or the 5 and 6 remakes? *sigh* I give up. I'm done with S-E. Enix made fantastic games, Square made fantastic games, but ever since they merged it's been nothing but mediocrity and garbage.
Square soft sucked, they made 2d games, Enix FTW!!!!
are you kidding me? FF4 and FF6 were AMAZING! get out of here leave the final fantasy talk to the grown ups.
since when gaming is a serious matter and for grown ups? lol besides i dont care if the story was awesome, it's fucking 2d, we're in 2011 for fks sake...10 sucked, 7 sucked (liked the characters but still) others i never will play them, 12 was awesome, 13 was good and versus will kick ass, @helghast so? 10 was about an emo guy who is probably fking his sister(she looks just like him i mean) there is no romance, it just sucked...:)
except the Squaresoft team made FF10 and every game below that one Square enix came and made every game past FF10 yup..
you obviously have no idea what a good final fantasy game is about. FF's downfall began with FF12.
ff12 didn't have emos... ff12 had the best gameplay of all ff's (oh and save time and don't whine about gambits, u can turn them off) ff12 had the best graphics ff12 had beautiful areas, every place is different and looks great, especially the salikawood all ff's before sucked, especially 10, cheesiest game i've ever seen, i could compare it to those movie-based game....
ffxV is squares chance to redeem themselves
This post and its source article make it sound like the game has actually been announced. It hasn't.
I still believe in you Square. But I fear that if you lose even a sucker like me you've got very litte left. Now go out there and make a game that rivals FFVII!
13 and 14 were both poor, so I'm not too bothered about 15
so why dont you guys FINISH YOUR GAMES instead of announcing them
