    Final Fantasy IV 3D remake - was faithful and he was the best person for it.
    Final Fantasy IV: The After Years - wasn't very good but still counts
    Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light - brand new old school JRPG for DS
    Final Fantasy Legends: Toki no Suishō - Heavily inspired by Chrono Trigger a game he was one of the directors for, even Alex got interested

    So basically nothing Tokyo RPG Factory is aiming for and what Matsuda wants. They're not using the Final Fantasy brand and following any rules that comes with it. They're not remaking anything. They're not making a sequel or spin-off. They're not making something that targets the mobile market either.

    They're trying to make a brand new IP with the ultimate goal of bringing back the memories players had during the SNES era. They're trying to recreate that experience but at the same time do their own thing. It's why they've assembled a team of people who have played and are skilled at SNES RPGs. People who have wanted to be developers thanks to those types of games.

    Oh, I understand that part. I simply meant Tokita is always making SNES-era style games for modern hardware. But I do understand completely the difference here is the new IP.

    Do you know if this title is digital-only?

    Watching that trailer made me feel all warm and tingly inside. :3 Looks super promising. I like the music, the presentation, the snowy setting, the character designs...it just looks GOOD. I'll be keeping my eye on this game for sure.

    That's a really long interview... probably the first and last one I'll read before the game comes out...

    I want to say FF legends: Toki no Suisho looks like a departure of what FFLegends was suppose to be. which was a throwback to FF games. FFDimensions nailed it perfectly. FFLegends:Toki no Suisho actually looks like its trying to do something modern.

    I played a bit of Tokita's new game and it's pretty good.

    I'm not saying it's good or bad. Just the game misses the point.

    These new characters look really nice, I love the colors. I'm generally fond of this game's art direction.

    And the cover art is gorgeous. I pray the western release gets the same one (or at least EU).

    Do you have a source for that? I cannot find any information pertaining to that OST on Square Enix Music's site, the only two CDs due to be released on that date are the second FF brass arrangement album and a SaGa album.

    As I am a newly registered member, I cannot yet post links. But I will try here.

    EDIT: It seems that Sony has since taken down the page. Aibo (@aibo_ac7) tweeted about it, and I've seen the date myself before the page was edited. It should be safe to say that this information was leaked and that SE will announce details at a later time.

    Dengeki PlayStation's review of Setsuna is in: 75/90/75/85. Rough translations, please wait for the official release of the magazine tomorrow. The game will be out in Japan on February 18.
    • Substituting (switching out?) characters during battle not possible
    • Treasure chests that can’t be opened from the start of the game exist
    • Serious story
    • Battle difficulty on the high side
    • Battles require thought, not monotous
    • Equipping function not available right after purchasing items
    • Selling items not possible?
    • Some errors pop up when selecting the correct options
    • Customization’s fun but replacing items is a hassle
    • Quality and price make the game attractive

    Will most likely get this, although I'm not sure when. Seems like a nice game, although I don't trust Famitsu at all, they're nothing but a marketing tool.

    Also, I hope this is a success and TGF, in a sequel/new IP, fix whatever flaws this one has and are more ambitious visual wise. I'm obviously not talking about them making a huge triple A game (that'd go against their very own foundation and I doubt S-E would fund that), but I want to see that gorgeous art better realized. As beautiful as this looks (them colours), it's still not enough for them to match it.

    If this a SNES era-like JRPG (basically a Chrono Trigger), I hope their next game does the same but with PSX-era. I could really fucking use some beautiful prerrendered backgrounds à la FF VII-IX.
