The Last Remnant - Square-Enix Delivers its Vision for the Future of the RPG

Gameplayer has gone live with a look at the next RPG for Final Fantasy developer Square Enix entitled The Last Remnant. The article focuses on the amazing new combat experience.

"While Koei's long-running hack 'n' slash series isn't the direct influence on Square-Enix's new direction, the similarities are easy to see. Remnant scales out the 'three versus three' clashes that have been the genre's standard since the original Final Fantasy in the '80s. Combatants now flow across the fields of battle in their hundreds, as central characters are supported by armoured legions (soldiers enlisted from Remnant's four main humanoid races)."

sounds vaguely like bladestorm 100 years war. sort of. kinda.

i'll reserve judgement until i see more of it.

though i'm pretty sure that square's vision of "the future of the rpg" is something akin to FFXIII. that free flowing, advent children-esque combat. but only time will tell what they do.

From what I've seen of it, it doesn't look too interesting. My top RPGs for 2008 are White Knight Chronicles, Fallout 3, and hopefully one of the FFXIII (just a hopeful wish though).
