    Final Fantasy XVI - General News Thread

    That can be put down to greater awareness of the international market. It's become less sectarian over the years, especially so with the 8th and 9th console generations, where companies have to release it in as wide a market as is feasible and plausible to get a profit or at least break even on...

    Final Fantasy XVI - General News Thread

    Wow, so it'll look incredible. And it's in British English, which will give it a older-style air than most other games manage. I always loved Xenoblade's British dub, made it feel more otherworldly than the same old American cast voicing these types of roles...again. Looking forward to XVI more...

    But also, they've actually got the story set in stone, and the dub's done, and then they're getting the gameplay properly tacked down. YAY!

    Tabata: 私はすでに精神的な後継者です。 Fans: 何!? SQEX: 興味ないね。 (P.S. I know I probably made a mistake in the Japanese, but I couldn't resist.)

    Final Fantasy Origin discussion thread

    Issues are fixed. And I've been watching some footage, so basically...seems to play like a faster version of Nioh without stamina management. And it was cool hearing the remixed FF battle theme in there. Won't say any more.

    It certainly seems to be something along the lines of a grungy FF isekai with Nioh-style gameplay. That's a set of words I never imagined stringing together into a sentence to describe an actual thing.

    Final Fantasy Origin discussion thread

    So, it's been announced. A Square Enix/Team Ninja collaboration, and it wasn't what I was expecting at least. Titled Strangers of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, it's got some familiar gameplay, and some deja vu-inducing aesthetics and tonal elements. Here's the trailer. And in case you missed...

    Looks like that's the end. Closure. True End. Finis.

    Final Fantasy XVI - General News Thread

    XVI'll probably dominate alongside VIIR and likely a small update on Forspoken. I'm really looking forward to more XVI since its world looks super interesting. As to this potential unknown FF, here's my three utterly out-there speculations; a standalone spin-off (secondary rumor hints it's a...

    So, a rumoured PS5 timed exclusive FF developed by Team Ninja with Souls-like elements... Don't know whether to squeal or groan.

    A little late, but given his influence on the gaming genre... RIP, Kentaro Miura.

    Final Fantasy VII REMAKE - General News Thread

    Gotta say, I think it reflects on my knowledge of VII universe that the moment I saw those glowing suits I knew it was Deepground, so seeing Nero wasn't a surprise at all. Does tie Yuffie into the Deepground plot elements nicely for Dirge of Cerberus.

    What games are you playing now?

    Not sure it counts entirely as a game, but recently I've spent some little time with the demo of Balan Wonderworld. Surprisingly engaging and enjoyable, and I wanted to play more worlds. Also, I'm quite sure it's based on an earlier build, and several aspects related to replaying are locked off...

    Maybe not the place, but... RIP, Maidy, the origin of Dad of Light. https://www.siliconera.com/final-fantasy-xiv-dad-of-light-original-author-passed-away/ https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/blog/003072.html

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    It's called "Dust to Dust" by Masashi Hamauzu, and it's from Final Fantasy XIII. It's the theme of the ruined town of Oerba.
