    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    That sort of falls in line with that the team stated at various times about reviewing the project and seeing what could be carried over into XV. They're technically two different projects with shared DNA.

    Final Fantasy VII REMAKE - General News Thread

    If they can use the "s***" word in battle dialogue, I think they won't baulk at a blood trail.

    Interesting thing I realised about DotF when compared to XV's vanilla narrative. Basically....DotF is Ovid's Metamorphosis to XV's Greek mythology. Nice story, but can clash.

    CEDEC has some interesting info sprinkled in. I'm interested in what kind of new IP SQEX thinks was potent enough to move away from one of their biggest IPs. There's also a reference there to a "New Mobile Title for China". I think that must be in reference to the new mobile XV title that's in...

    Final Fantasy VII REMAKE - General News Thread

    Further info. Their apparently planning out the second part of Remake at the moment. Tell you the truth, I'm scared by this project now. If it becomes a flop at any point, they may end up ditching it and leaving it unfinished. They wouldn't be the first company to do that by a long shot.

    Shenmue III delayed again. Why am I not surprised? It's the Avatar 2 of gaming.

    They could be continuing with the FF6 homages and creating a third "floating" continent beyond the Lucis and Niflheim continents. Moreover, I'm interested in how the Astrals are all positioned in the same kind of grouping. As if they were all on the same side. And it's almost like Noctis is...

    Right, here's what I've managed to extract from the Google Translate stuff. Basically the three companies are cooperating on bringing Final Fantasy XV to a new audience through this mobile project. (This sounds like they're just going to be creating another version of XV for mobiles that'll be...

    An update on The Dawn of the Future's English release. SQEX has struck a publishing deal with Penguine's Random House subsidiary. Alongside the manga Soul Eater, A Man and his Cat, and Hi-Score Girl, they're also releasing the English translation of FFXV: THe Dawn of the Future in North...

    It does as Ikkin mentioned above. It also completely destroys one of the key lore concepts; that "soul" and "heart" are two different things, as in nearly every instance the term "soul" is always used. In the original lore, crystalline souls are eternal, but humans are given individuality by...

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    I've discovered something interesting, a relationship between Lightning Returns and XV. I've always wondered why the localisation of Lightning Returns went so completely off the deep end when it came to altering characterisations and butchering terminology. And I came across something; the main...

    Sadly, there probably was. FNC was more than just a mythos, it was a project that was let down on multiple fronts and was a corporate creation rather than something with a person's passion behind it like Ivalice was. Given the troubles all three games went through, I'm not surprised they've all...

    Ah, found it. And I misremembered what it was. To quote:

    As I can't find that source again, I've removed my original comment. I do remember reading it, from someone on Twitter or Tumble who translated it, but as I can't provide a link, it's wrong to keep that statement without a source to back it up. Edit: Apologies.

    On principle, agree. And yes, Chrono Cross was a little free with character deaths, and I'm still muddled about how they managed all that inter-world stuff without the plot completely caving in on itself. If any XV-2 went that route, they would need to use the engine and gameplay they had, and...

    Those "leaks" weren't ever substantiated. It was mostly related to 2Chan and 4Chan stuff, not anything from the developers themselves. All we know for sure about the Versus XIII storyline prior to rebranding is; *It was a "reality based on fantasy", with extraordinary happenings emerging from...

    I think that's because FF has unrealistic expectations attached to the brand ever since the world went mad for VII. Nothing seems able to match that, but people won't drop the idea that FF needs to reach that point again. It doesn't. It's moved on from that into another era, where the future's...

    I just occurred to me; I wonder if/when we'll be getting an XV Ultimania Omega now the saga of XV is well and truly finished. Omega's always hold some of the juiciest titbits from a development and lore perspective.
