After playing XIII, I swore I'd never play another Final Fantasy game ever again. That stands until I hear the words "this Final Fantasy game is fun and isn't so melodramatic."

This looks dumb in all the right ways

SE is simply amazing at pleasing and alienating fans at the same time.

Versus XIII was always the only XIII game I cared about. Excited to see that's it's now XV. Now hopefully they'll fucking release it at some point.

This series needs to be rebooted.

This almost looks like a cinematic platformer.

#9 Posted by JetForceGemini (174 posts) -

Huh, yet another FF game I'm not even remotely interested in. What happened to this series?

#10 Posted by spiralsin (156 posts) -

So uh, I guess I should cancel my 3 year old preorder for Versus XIII now?

#11 Posted by TranceQuina (149 posts) -

I'm holding out for Versus XV.

You do that. I'll be waiting for "XIII vs XV: Aerith's Return"

Is it just me or does the gameplay stutter when too much is going on?

I WANT THIS GAME IN MY VAGINA

They've already released a second trailer:

#16 Edited by WolfHazard (460 posts) -

this looks fucking gorgeous and XII was an amazing game, 13-2 was pretty good and I have high hopes for Lightning Returns, but I can't even begin to describe how excited I am for this.

Edit: XBOX ONE?! Now I don't even need to buy a PS4.I can't even contain my excitement.

#17 Posted by Sledgemeyers (39 posts) -

I don't understand how this is a real thing with graphics that are really rendered on the PS4... insanity on many levels. I can't wait.

#18 Edited by bunkerbuster05 (453 posts) -

Fucking sold. This looks insane!

#19 Posted by Ketch (32 posts) -

I need this!

#20 Posted by ZironZ (54 posts) -

@mrasshat: Well at least the battle system seems to have gotten a major reboot.

#21 Edited by North6 (272 posts) -

FF XV - Status - It's complicated.

I found no joy at all in X, and it's the first game they made a direct sequel to. That's when I knew they had given up on the tone and style of IX. And maybe, from a business standpoint, they made the right call. Maybe folks like you and I are too rare to pay the bills. But I'm still a little disappointed.

What does that even mean? Just dropping the numbers? There's no continuity among the franchise, so what would get carried backwards to the beginning of the "reboot?"

#23 Posted by ScreamingGhost (213 posts) -

Once again FF has sold me on a system just don't let me down this time around.

#24 Posted by YapaPanda (120 posts) -

I don't know guys, this looks INCREDIBLE. INCRRRREEEEDDIIIIIIIIBBBLE. Ok I'm back in games you guys.

#25 Posted by crithon (3052 posts) -

there's a behemoth from FF13 in there, was that a new model? or new textures? a lot of FF13 had PS2 assets on them.

#26 Edited by Landon (4127 posts) -

This looks infinitely more interesting than XIII did.

#27 Posted by nnotdead (83 posts) -

i don't want to over hype, but i may be back on board the FF series. i want it.

The Final Fantasy series is nothing but reboots.

#29 Edited by Eojay (183 posts) -

I haven't been so hot on anything Final Fantasy since after X, but this looks dumb and over the top in a way I can totally get behind. And damn pretty as well.

#30 Edited by JCGamer (658 posts) -

Is this an action game or a turned based game? If action--I'm all in.

#31 Posted by John1912 (1811 posts) -

Yea, after the complete shit stain FF13 was, Its going to take a lot to get me back in. Square has just dug a hole where I dont respect or care for them as a developer anymore.

#32 Posted by kappamerc (38 posts) -

I want to get excited but I'm worried I'll be disappointed. >.<

This look absolutely amazing, but they are spending way too much time and money making these games. Kudos if this actually turns out good, but the flashy, over the top stuff isn't what I come to Final Fantasy for.

I'm cautiously optimistic, but games with that budget and development timeline have a bad record.

#35 Posted by paulunga (1903 posts) -

Versus XIII always looked more interesting than XIII. Like a slightly more mature Kingdom Hearts.

#36 Edited by kycinematic (139 posts) -

This looks crazy, in a good way, actually. Haha, what the hell - Final Fantasy kinda looks fun again.

this man speaks truth

#38 Edited by Jayzilla (2554 posts) -

I wasn't interested in this when it was XIII, but now that it is XV I will totally get it. It's got names that are vaguely of a Western spiritualism feel. It's got androgynous boys with guns touching each other. It's got old men with wry smiles, and a whole ton of jibber jabber to boot.

I've been replaying FF6, and the best part about that game is how it barely takes itself seriously.

Modern FF's could use a lot of that nowadays, because I don't think they've got the writers to pull off something legitimately dramatic anymore.

#40 Edited by killacam (1284 posts) -

that second trailer is the best thing i've seen. and i've seen all!

i wonder if this could be multiplayer...

#41 Posted by ChrisTaran (1555 posts) -

Yep, they pulled me back in. Loved that trailer.

This is copy/pasted from my comment on the gameplay page.

"Is anyone else reminded of platinum games by this. I think it looks pretty neat and I'm looking forward to playing this whenever the hell it comes out."

"Does anyone else wish that after this square would just make a new final fantasy that's a throwback to the old days. They could focus on a good story, combat and music. I'm guessing there would be significantly less production costs and millions of fans would absolutely love something akin to FF 4/6, of course with modern day pixel art. That would be amazing."

#44 Edited by ScriptKitty (24 posts) -

Pretty sure I saw Ezio in there with all the faces.

#45 Posted by White (1303 posts) -

And we'll hear from them again during E3 2015.

#46 Edited by TangoUp (307 posts) -

Well, atleast they have a gameplay trailer after 7 years. Gran Turismo developer PD must be hating Square Enix for breaking their record.

They actually put out a phone game called Final Fantasy Dimensions last year that is exactly what you're talking about. I haven't played it, but reviews are mainly positive.
