    Tidas wasn't strictly a named protagonist as his name could be changed in X/X-2, but he wasn't silent by any means.

    I noticed something else in the last gif. The insignia on the dragoon's cloak under all that blood is nearly identical to one of the two crossed tattoos on the protagonist's face in his grizzled version shown at the beginning and end of the trailer.

    They could also have pre-set AI behaviours like in XII, or role/formation-based action programming like XIII. But unless they're going for the sole protagonist thing again, character switching seems indicated. We only know of one protagonist, but that doesn't mean there won't be more in a party...

    It does look fun in concept. Very FF Type-0. Edit: I say that having now spent over seventy hours with that game.

    I think PBR omission, if it's there and not just difficult to see, would make it appear more fantastical on some level. I found XV's realism rather boring, while XVI's making me excited.

    I wouldn't go by one journalist's say-so, since he appears to be talking more about the graphics quality and aesthetic than the engine tech. Plus, according to dev interviews, with XIV they actually scrapped the whole engine and started over with a "completely different" engine optimised for...

    Something else I noticed in terms of references. The young archduke's son's called Joshua, he possesses a dangerous power, the protagonist is a former servant of royalty and seems to turn into some kind of covert/black ops squad targeting magic users (summoners or Dominants in this case), a...

    Wow, the producer behind XIV's rebirth, and a director who cut his teeth on the SaGa series. Interesting combination.

    The new logo. From the trailer, it's a Pheonix summon fighting a Bahamut summon. And once again, it's Amano. When I saw the trailer style, I was a little worried.

    Feels weird, thinking back on Square/SQEX's past. They managed three mainline FFs in a generation (Famicom, SNES, PS1, PS2), then all the dev problems happened, we just got XIII and XIV on 7th gen, then we only got XV for 8th gen. It's almost sad. Mind you, I'd rather they take their time and...

    That would fit in with some of the job applications related to Unreal or other engines from SQEX recently.

    In regards to that quote, Athia is the one using a pre-existing tested engine in Luminous. And I doubt they'd go back to older engine tech like Crystal Tools which was six kinds of headaches for them with XIII, XIV and Versus/XV.
