Final Fantasy news and trailer

1 min read

If, like me, you are a die hard fan of the Final Fantasy franchise, you will be happy to hear that there is new news!  First, we have the E3 trailer for the next iteration of FFXIII: Lightening Returns.  Second, we know when we’ll know more about the next Final Fantasy.

Yeah, FFXIII was a bit of a fail.  Okay, a lot of a fail.  But it had some nice elements.  I definitely liked FFXIII-2 more; it was great to be a time traveller, but I still wasn’t as happy with it as I should have been.  Now, I must say that I’m a bit sick of most of the characters.  Maybe Lightening was the most popular character (despite her irritating sister), but I’m not too sure she needs another whole game!  In any event, the game will be launching in Europe on 14 February 2014 – I know what I’m getting for Valentine’s Day. Here is the E3 trailer.

Next in the news, Square Enix will hold a Q&A for media titled “Future of Final Fantasy” at E3 on Tuesday, 11 June.  Seeing as Sony is having their big event the day before, I wonder if they will also give more information about the new Final Fantasy coming to the PS4, or if they will save that for Square Enix’s event.

I hope that they go back to the old vibe of Final Fantasy.  I’m sorry, but it just doesn’t seem right without Cid as your engineer.  Or without a much more open-world than the last few games.  Are you keen for the next era in Final Fantasy?  Is this one of the franchises that you love or hate?

        FF X for me … 12 in my opinion was way worse than 13

          You see, now I LOVED 12. It was way better than X for me. It was different, but it was amazing for it’s time. Strong art direction, excellent voice acting and dialogue, mature story, well-written characters (for a change). FFXIII in comparison felt like a cornified FFX. And X was already so corny, still liked it though. The gambit system was great, dragon age: origins even stole it. The downfall was the lack of character focus, and large-scale storytelling that made everything feel impersonal. That and it was a bit mature for most audiences in it’s method of delivery. I freaking loved the Arazlam monologues. A wonderful throwback to FFTactics (probably my second favourite FF in the series).

            Lol many loved the game, and your points are valid. very mature story and awesome art direction, But what I hated was buying licenses for equipment, 15 hours into the game I unlocked most of the stats buffs and abilities. Exploration yielded no rewards, the environments you run through has no worthwhile treasure, the gambit system was fun but only setting up gambits was fun, the actual use of gambits made the battle system extremely devoid of any user control. I played without gambits and the battle system was still boring for me. The only thing I loved was the music, I love Hitoshi Sakimoto’s compositions

      That game has been far too long in development. I get that they take the time to build a quality game, but damn…. waiting years just to play a game is just insane. Better games eventually start coming out and next thing you know when this pops up it will just end up being just another game. The thought of it is horrible after waiting years for it to be released dont you think? I mean check out Diablo 3. How long we all waited and the results ended up being so bad for most gamers out there. Check out Duke Nukem. Waited years and when it released…. damn… I wont even go there, but you get the idea.

        Indeed, the thing with Versus is that it’s the pinnicle of hope for FF fans, those games you mentioned never really showed any promise to begin with besides it’s name. Duke Nukem rode on the hype of the Duke Nukem Brand so did Diablo with its name and pre-rendered cutscenes.

        FF versus 13 actually has promise and they showed actual gameplay that looks amazing, but I know that is not even enough to keep our interest and who knows if the actual game will be that good. But all I know is, those excited for the game are excited for the game and promises not just because it’s the next entry in the list.

          VERY true with what you say. Its just that its sad that the dedicated fans religiously wait on the arrival of these amazing games only to get kicked up the ass. Sucks. I do hope it keeps to what it has been showing all this time.
          FF fans deserve something really great after all the mediocre releases.

            Couldn’t agree more, FF fans deserve Versus, after all the teasing they do, they can’t keep us in limbo. Also, I can’t believe SE never localized Type-0

    They started coding the Crystal Engine for FFXIII 8 YEARS AGO… 8 FUCKING YEARS.

    It took them 5 years to make XIII then 2 years to place all of the cuttings off of the floor into XIII-2 now another 2 years for a game that nobody wants.

    XIII sold over 6 million copies, it is a success. XIII-2 sold 2.5million, still profit but anybody can see the FOOL ME ONCE syndrome creeping in.

    XIII-3 will sell 1 million. I bet they still make profit.

    So much for the Japanese stereotype of working hard and efficient.

    Expect Final Pantysee Versus XIII Alpha plus novo crystal or what ever the fuck they call these things now days to be in Development HELL longer than DUKE NUKEMS COCK.

      However, I agree, Squall and Cloud were awesome, and on a lesser scale Tidus.

      The only FF game in the next while that will see any Randelas is FFX:HD (once i have finished replaying VII, VIII, IX (thank you PS Store)

            On the PS Store, you can get 7, 8, 9 for something like 230. Then they are doing a HD remake of 10 for the PS3 later on in the year…. so yeah, Choices are becoming clearer
