First, I think many of us saw this coming. I wasn't certain (none of us were) but I had a feeling.
My initial reaction? Anger. This is an action game. I WANT A JRPG. Final Fantasy games are JRPGs. This looks like it fits somewhere between Kingdom Hearts and Devil May Cry.
But, then I opened my heart. The artwork really helps. I can't put my finger on it, but it just looks more like Final Fantasy than XIII. It takes me back to Nomura's best days, designing VII, VIII, and X. In particular, this game reminds me of VIII, which is probably my favorite game in the series. When it looks the part, how can I complain.
I can't wait to play this. Nothing will stop me from finishing it, the same way that boredom couldn't stop me from finishing XIII.
What evil spell have you cast on me Square?
Anyways, how are you all feeling?
