    Localization is still Japan development arrow to the knee. I mean it has improved, but I don't know, it still sounds acted, instead of believable. Like anime dubs, you can't just imitate the inflection of the japanese actor and call it a day. It is mainly understanding what is trying to convey and adapting it to the culture you're translating to. My opinion.

    I grew up playing games and personally after the complete nose dive of a game called final fantasy 13 then a slightly better version but doesn't say much called final fantasy 13 -2 i think the change of paces and style is what this franchise needs. Just think we might not need to replace our X/A button halfway through. But seriously i dont want to wait any longer. The least i want is a release date showing the beginning of next year.

    Wait a minute, am I missing something? Didn't Squenix say a while ago that you could no longer control characters other than Noctis? Am I out of the loop?

    Looks nice, but honestly I'm far more interested in Bravely Second than FFXV at this point. Maybe I'm just craving the old skool turn-based SNES feel Bravely will give me over XV's flashy KH-style actiony one.

    Looks amazing. Basically a next gen (current ain't dead yet) Kingdom Hearts game, but instead of it being Final Fantasy cross Disney Worlds, it's modern age wealthy young men cross Final Fantasy. Brilliant.

    I feel like I've grown old with this game, It'll be a little weird to finally play it after anticipating it all of these years. Every year at E3 waiting to see if there are any announcements regarding then VersesXIII and if there were no announcements, I would just let out a sigh and say "Maybe next year." I'll have to find a new game to do that to once FF15 is released.. HL3 maybe? Games looking great though, I'm diggin' everything about it, especially that Yoko Shimomura is writing the score!

    The new trailer looks simply astounding. Although i REALLY hope that those shown interactions and interplay with characters in combat is something you can control, and aren't just scripted events. Also, dunno for how long that will play out, but the idea that at least part of the journey will be experienced like a road trip is pretty interesting. Best news though is the fact that Tetsuya Nomura is no longer in charge. At least, I hope this means the story will make more sense and will be less of the needless contrivances and convolution that Nomura is infamous for.
  • Vonter - September 18, 2014 3:39 p.m.

    Yeah, that's really what I call mind blowing, although it should since it has been in development for 9 years (still no release date >_<). That could mean a lot of things, but my take is they just told him the game can't suffer more delays and they put someone to wrap things up. Also now Nomura can give the wonders of development hell to Kingdom Hearts III. Some parts remind me of the first trailer of Xenoblade Chronicles X, although it's obvious both games have different goals in mind in terms of their gameplay.
  • BladedFalcon - September 18, 2014 4:56 p.m.

    The only real similarity that I see between Xenoblade and this trailer is the shots of open fields with monsters roaming around. Aside from that, FFXV is clearly more plot driven, and Xenoblade is more exploration focused, the battle system seems more visceral and deliberate in FFXV while Xenoblade looks more monster hunter-y. And of course... the graphical gap is significant. But yeah, I mean, I don't really know the work of this new director, but frankly, I'd rather have ANYONE but Nomura directing it.... Well, no, I also hope the people responsible for anything concerning FFXIII and spin-offs aren't anywhere NEAR the project.
  • Vonter - September 18, 2014 5:47 p.m.

    Yeah that was I meant, although they both also show numbers pop from beating enemies. But yeah FF XV seems that'll have more mobility and that is great. Hajime Tabata was director of Before Crisis, Crisis Core (FF VII) and FInal Fantasy Type-0 (game that will have the FF XV demo).
  • BladedFalcon - September 18, 2014 6:26 p.m.

    ...I kinda hated Crisis Core, so that's a bit worrying >>;
  • Vonter - September 18, 2014 6:37 p.m.

    The writer, Kazushige Nojima , according to Wikipedia wrote, Crisis Core, KH: Chain of Memories, FF VII, VIII, X and X-2, while not the writer the concept of FF XIII was wrote by him, also surprisingly he wrote with Sakurai the storyline for the Subspace Emissary in SMBB, kinda knew it had a final fantasy vibe.
  • Outofmanyone - September 18, 2014 7:23 p.m.

    Well, to be fair, XIII-2's gameplay was actually good.. the creature based combat setup and side quests(Serendipity being my favorite) I rather enjoyed but as for the overall plot, characters, script, performances; I completely agree those involved should stay FAR away. I do have to say though, the soundtracks of all three XIII games definitely deserve more recognition.

    iwouldlve liked a playable female to spice up the story
  • kaorosu - June 30, 2013 12:46 a.m.

    The new combat system looks fun, but I admit I will miss turn-based combat.
  • miser - June 29, 2013 1:37 p.m.

    Why, why does everybody want turn based combat system! stop clinging to the past people, move on!!!! I am very excited for this new combat system and i think it will be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
  • kcbates85 - July 1, 2013 4:35 p.m.

    I dont think that people aren't moving on, people just like the turn based games. These are going away and Final Fantasy is a great game/series for this style of play
  • Type1diabeetus - June 29, 2013 12:34 p.m.

    If I wanted devil may cry, I'd buy devil may cry. I hate how the battle element is turning into that. Turn based ftw.
  • ARKTURO - June 28, 2013 2:24 p.m.

    I like it :) a lot. Although I think the whole "save the world" act hasnt lost its charm because of overuse, it just hasnt been done right lately. A good writer can write an awesome story and characters regardless of its base plot. But even if that happened it would still greatly depend on attracting an increasingly opinionated and closedminded audience.
  • Raindog - June 27, 2013 10:22 p.m.

    Have always been interested in Final Fantasy's stories, great presentation and massive scope, but never been a fan of turn based RPG combat. I'm really looking forward to this!!
