You've obviously never played Kingdom Hearts... or Crisis Core...

Did anyone else get an FF9 feeling from the opening sequence in with all the eveningwear followed by the impression you just witnessed a terrible unveiling of the new DMC game?

Posted by SSully

I am usually not a big fan of JRPG, mainly because of the melodramatic themes, but i think i might be able to get with this!

Maybe I'm out of my groove, but neither this nor bulletstorm look compelling to me.  The only reason I'm doubting myself is because Jeff, Brad, and Ryan like where these games are going.

Kingdom Hearts without all the weirdness that comes from building a crossover universe, sign me up.

Posted by Kyle

That looks pretty cool. 
 
I just wish the main character had the suit he was wearing at the beginning of the trailer throughout the game. I find the whole weird short-pant-one-glove thing really off-putting...

Crisis Core was the first thing I thought of when I saw the battle system. Kingdom Hearts too. This looks great.

I don't know, I could probably think of a few things.

Judging from the video, It's like a copy of Final Fantasy XIII had sex with Japan; and this is the resulting love child.

Press X every 5 seconds for the next 30 hours... JOY.
Posted by Cazamalos

if this plays like crisis core, then it will be awesome

Posted by coakroach

Combat looks interesting. 
 
But those characters....ugh

Posted by masterherocard

Ok, two things.
First, yeah, seeing a lot of kingdom hearts-esque gameplay in here.
Second, I'd rather play as the driver than the prettyboy.

And this wasn't the actual Final Fantasy 13 because??? 
 
Also. Good to see Raptors are making a comeback into real society. They've been on off season for quite some time now.

What's the difference?
Posted by imayellowfellow

dont care much for the character design, but if this game gives you some kind of story arc or at least a main antagonist before the 75 percent mark of the game then it'll be better than ff13 for me.

That's one stylish king!

Agreed, Raptors used to stand for something.  Honor, spirit, virtue.  I hope they strive to be treated as equals in our zombie biased society.   
I love the style and action oriented concept.  And plus those Japanese really know how to make some wicked beautiful cinematics,  I think this game will back up that beauty this time.

This would get much more "wow!" buzz if it wasn't tied to Final Fantasy.

I think he means that while they are set in the same world, they are from vastly different periods.  One rational would be that FFXIII takes place largely on the moon of a planet.  While the planet had civilization on it before, they had died out long ago.  That gives this game alot of leeway in how it inserts itself into that world.
 
Ultimately, it really makes no difference at all and is little more than marketing to justify placing it under the Fabula Nova Crystalis banner.
Posted by Subject2Change

This looks amazing and in the right step for Final Fantasy series. Should of NEVER released/made  FFXIII and put this out in its place. Going for traditional turn based to action/hack-slash RPG would of probably kept more people into it. Hoping it has some open exploration and side stuff. Looking forward to this a lot more. O yea and can you stop with the J-Pop Male Idol hair cuts please...

Posted by Jack_Lafayette
Is that driver at the beginning the Alfred to emo Japanese kid's Batman? Because that would be great.

that was the only interesting thing I saw on this video , so I will pass , no girls but only "boys" is not my thing , also the world looked bland and monotonous "
I can't account for tastes but the game does show both combat in a metropolis as well as in the wilderness.  I'm not sure "bland and monotonous" are applicable adjectives.

I don't think that was.  Just wrong.

uhhh what? Anyone else think the gameplay looks old and boring? The hack-n-slash gameplay looks straight out of devil may cry, except.. slower...

Posted by Squagmire

Some instrumental parts of the soundtrack here remind me strongly of Kingdom Hearts, not to mention the gameplay.

Posted by TobyD81

That looks really cool. Glad they finally put out some new video for this game after HOW many years?!

Posted by Milkman

The visuals look absolutely incredible.

Looks good but I don't see it coming out until next year so I'll save the hype for then.

Posted by Bacchus

You lost me at anime fem-boy dude.

Posted by Octaslash

This just screams Kingdom Hearts.  The combat looks similar, except with awesome exploding set pieces.
 
Hell, I don't even have to guess the guy who did the music in this trailer worked on KH.

Edited by Xeiphyer

Caught this video a few weeks ago when it leaked, looks super great.
 
Some of the robot stuff looked kind of lame, but this is early footage and it isn't really that bothersome I suppose.
 
I think it was extremely surprising to see just how 'modern' a time period this is. I had seen a car on a highway and going through a tunnel before and whatnot, but something about that scene where they skipped the tunnel traffic with the special lane really interested me. That area is exactly like one in real life, which is really cool.
 
Also there is a sort of mafia vibe going on as well, not Yakuza per se, definitely more Mafia. Western influences I imagine.

Final Fantasy set in Kamurocho = you have me intrigued.

Posted by kalmis

Looks great

Posted by Cramsy

Yep I'm down. 

Posted by moomoofarm7

Damn looks pretty sick. I was scared to buy + devote a lot of time to XIII because of all the negativity. And honestly I never saw anything from watching it that said I gotta play XIII.  This, however, caught my eye. Quick.

Posted by AxleBro

i'm actually kinda.. interested? wow

Posted by LoopyChew

This looks fantastic, but how does it tie to the FFXIII universe?

Posted by Pathos

Looks cool but, is it an action game or action/rpg hybrid? 

Edited by falling_fast

I approve of the change of setting type, anyway 
 
normal final fantasy is played out

Posted by Tordah

This looks pretty damn impressive, both the CGI and the in-game graphics.

Posted by Spekingur

They surely know how to make very nice CG cutscenes/movies, that's for sure.

Posted by JBrighty

so they ditched the turn based combat system ?

Posted by Addfwyn
@JBrighty: VS XIII was always gonna be an action RPG. 
 
Super excited for this, looks really solid, and some interesting plot points.  Glad they are continuing the universe for XIII
Posted by Tober

I would've really liked another Kingdom Hearts, but hey. I've just got a new game on the DS so i shouldn't complain. The title puzzles me a lot though....

Posted by keyhunter

Cool, modern Korean looking highschool kids who use swords even though guns are totally way more effective and available. I can't wait!

The games have the same mythos, that's all.
