FF finished for me after FF9, won't include FF10 just because of annoying Tidus. FF15 was pretty bad. They literally don't know what to do with this franchise anymore. But there will always be people who will buy it just for the name I guess.

Setting looks great, a definite buy, eventually.

Odd that they’re playing a track from VII in the background, has that been used in other games?
This one?


It's been a recurring theme throughout FF, though it wasn't in FF7. Unless you mean a different theme?

Do like the medieval FF games.

Is it me or are the graphics really underwhelming? FF games are usually graphically brilliant so I expected more from a next gen game.

I imagine it will also be in PS4 so is maybe early footage.

"Playstation 5 console exclusive*

Sounds like it's a timed exclusive only then.

XII was great?

XII was good though the characters were a bit naff. XIII I actually enjoyed the battle system but everything else was shocking. XV I enjoyed the first half and thought it was a good game but then the second half kicked in and it went downhill massively

The game is developed by Squares 3rd Division, which is lead by a certain Naoki Yoshida, who is also the producer of the game. That is the guy who turned the absolute fiasco that was FF XIV into the best received MMORPG in the world. He is probably the most capable dev of the whole company. Save to say that the game will be in very good hands.

Good to hear.

Quietly looking forward to this. FF has lost its way since 12 but there's been as many ups as downs (so if they just concentrate on the ups all will be well).

Final Witcher Fantasy Dragon Age 16 :eek: I'm cautiously optimistic about the darker tone. I usually hate all these arguments over sci-fi vs traditional fantasy setting (they're both great) but the setting makes a change and looks fresh. Even though I don't like 12 all that much I wouldn't say no to a more political FF plot either.

Apparently that Matsuno guy is involved too and he's made some great stuff before (FF Tactics). I'm getting good "back to roots" vibes from the trailer, and FFVII remake was great, think it was where they finally found their footing on how to make a "modern" FF combat system. So.. hyped!
