Final Fantasy XV, the reincarnation of Final Fantasy Versus XIII

Can I just say how happy I am about the new Final Fantasy?  Partly because it proves they didn’t forget about it, and partly because it looks freaking amazing!  Also, it seems to follow old school Final Fantasy design – being persecuted, familial ties and ensuing heartache, and epic graphics and prettiness.

So, what is the new one about?  It appears to be a fight between old and modern societies – plenty of modern looking cities as well as the use of crystals.  Plus, it calls itself a fantasy based on reality.  Gamezone reports

FFXV is set in the Kingdom of Lucis, during a stressful time for Crown Prince Noctis and his crew. Noctis and his comrades have been thrown out of their homes and into a world that’s being attacked by the armed forces of Niflheim.

Looks like the typical FF approach – bad people are trying to overthrow the peace process, which involves killing you and your family.  I’m sure there will be some self-sacrifice, and a ragtag group that works together to save the world.  I just hope that this time around they make the characters more compelling and likable, as well as a more engaging plot.  Plus, they’d better make it open world earlier on – I think the biggest complaint about FFXIII was that it felt like running down a (really pretty) hallway for the first 40 hours.

Next bombshell?  It won’t be a PS exclusive – it’s also going to be released on the Xbox One.  Okay, now here’s the trailer again, in case you missed it!

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • OVG

    Do not forget, they slapped 14 on that other piece of shit that was unplayable. What a disgrace to the name. This is damage control.

    • Hammersteyn

      I think they may be on the rebound with this release.

  • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

    My balls are tingling for this game……………………

    • Hammersteyn

      Mine just stopped, um I ‘m going home real quick.

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        Always have tissues ready

        • Hammersteyn

          Not enough I’m afraid

    • Spathi

      Better visit your GP, just to be certain that is indeed the reason…

  • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

    That battle trailer looked so good……..

  • Daniel Keevy

    I want to see the battle being played first. 13 and 14 wouldn’t let me touch my controller.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    I need more info… and reassurances that this isn’t like FF13.

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      did you see the map HUD though? it really doesn’t look like 13 lol

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        I want it.. I want it so bad, but I’m also sceptical!

        • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

          Don’t be brother …. let the final fantasy love flow through your veins once more

          • DaeMon

            true story

        • LordCaptainAwesomeness

          Remember when they did the original Trailer for 13 on the PS3 way back? It looked AMAZING, and then we got Lightning and Vanille…..

  • OVG

    Do I buy this amazing game for the CHEAP console OR THE RAPE MACHINE.

    Mmmmm decisions decisions…

    • OVG

      Looking forward to see Square’s sales data on what console the multiplat game did better on.

      • OVG

        The same with Ubisoft and Project Red.

    • Spathi

      Oh my soul you made me cough coffee all over my keyboard! Asshole 😉

    • That Tall Twit

      LMAO!

    • Rinceyouropinion

      Well done, sir, you got a chuckle from me too!

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    It looks so pretty!

  • Hammersteyn

    Can’t wait 🙂

  • DaeMon

    love the series…looking forward to it

  • Trevor Davies

    What is Altair doing in the middle of the header image?

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      LMAO!!!

  • John Ambitious

    About time

  • Gerhard Davids

    I have set myself to vibrate for this one. The “fantasy based on reality” really does it for me and I’m glad they went there. It looks amazeballs and I can’t wait.
