News and Updates

Speaking with VideoGamer.com, Final Fantasy developer veteran Yoshinori Kitase has made a few small comments regarding the much anticipated Final Fantasy XV.

Although he isn’t involved in development directly, Kitase said that FFXV was “quite far into development” and went on to say that the game has been given a “very high priority” status at Square Enix, most likely because the XIII saga has now finally concluded with the wide release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

When Final Fantasy XV will finally release still remains to be seen, but if these words are anything to go by, it shouldn’t be too long before we truly start to get some steady and exciting news, hopefully starting with E3 this year.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy is now out everywhere! If you haven’t already, check out this launch trailer from the North American release on the 11th.

*UPDATE*

We now have the European Launch trailer available here for your viewing pleasure.

So, are you playing Lightning Returns? Why don’t you let us know how you’re liking the game on our Forums. Haven’t signed up? Don’t worry, it’s easy. Just start here.



In the latest issue of Famitsu, Square Enix debuted the brand new Fabula Nova Crystallis game ‘Final Fantasy Agito’. Set in the same world as Type-0, Agito is a Free-To-Play Social Game that acts as a prequel to the original game.

You create and play as your own student at Peristylium Suzaku. There, you can meet the 14 Characters of Type-0, who are currently all in different classes throughout the school. You will also meet the new character Myu Kagerohi, who is the Cadet Representative for the school.

The game plays out in chapters, with a new chapter coming out every two weeks. Within that time, 10 Days will be the ‘Solo Phase’ where you play alone within the story and build up your character. The final 4 Days will be the ‘Team Phase’ where you team up with others to fight the boss. Depending on Player Polls at the end of each chapter, the story will change to reflect the choices made. All chapters are replayable.

The game has a Job System in place for your character. Depending on your Job, you will learn new abilities and skills as you level up. What the Jobs are, are not yet confirmed.

Gameplay, rather than the standard Menus norm for Social Games even within Square Enix’s releases, is fully 3D with returning locations from Type-0. Outside of missions, you will once again be able to explore the grounds of Peristylium Suzaku with an on-screen analog stick. The graphics in the game are higher quality than Type-0′s, and the game is very smooth and clear. In combat, you have several buttons and a Skill Tree of sorts along the bottom of the screen. There doesn’t seem to be a movement pad in combat, but it may be set to only show when you touch the screen, as that option has been offered in other SE games like Chaos Rings.

As the game is Free-To-Play, it has a time system on retrying failed missions and Energy. Microtransactions will be available for those who wish to refill Energy faster, and there will be a Ability Lottery to get new skills.

Hajime Tabata returns as Director, and Takeharu Ishimoto of Type-0 and TWEWY fame returns as Composer.

The game will launch in Winter 2014. There is no current plans for any international release. The official website can be found here, and the game has been added to Square Enix’s TGS Lineup.



With San Diego Comic Con only a short time away, Square Enix has released the new trailer for Lightning Returns, aptly titled “13 Days”.  Even though the trailer does showcase some new battle footage and cutscenes, most of the new features showcased are…Lightning’s various outfits.  Yeah.  They’re…interesting, to say the least.  Check it out below!

In addition, forum member xxx_loverboy_xxx has found a video showcasing new gameplay footage from the game, taken from the Japan Expo. The demo showcases the open world exploration segments of the game, as well as additional monster battles.

Until next time, this is Emily, signing off.



FFXV Detail Round-Up: More Females and Cor Leonis

Tags: , , ,

Hey there sports fans, just popping in to give you fine folks a few details I missed during this huge outpouring of news. After the wait, I wouldn’t dream of letting you go without every detail I can find, so let’s jump right in.

First and probably most interesting to many is that Nomura has promised us that, though there are many male characters so far, there will be more women down the line. Obviously he can’t comment on who will or will not be joining the party of the two women we are so far aware of, but at least this comment might give folks a little hope. The black-haired woman and Stella are not the only women in the entire world after all.

There are also some details on Cor Leonis that I forgot to share. He’s what’s known as yakudoshi in Japanese superstition. That is, his age of 42 is considered to be one of three unlucky ages that bring about illness and misfortune. Not only that, his age is supposed to be the worst of the three, called “honyaku” or great calamity. Cor also wields a katana, something many had already guessed when his nickname came to light, and he joins the party last of the five revealed party members.

The fellow with the red hair has been confirmed to be an enemy of Noctis, with his hair being that shade because he is voiced by returning voice actor Keiji Fujiwara. Well known for his roles as Reno in Final Fantasy VII and Axel in the Kingdom Hearts series, he seems to have a penchant for villains who later become allies. That’s probably a bit too much speculation, but here’s some more anyway: Fujiwara’s characters are both voiced by Quinton Flynn in English, so it’s possible we might already know a voice actor.

That’s all I have for you at the moment, but we’ve been promised that XV will make another major appearance at TGS. Before then, we’re told that we can expect further features from places like Famitsu, so keep your eyes locked here.

Final Fantasy XV Dengeki Details
Date: June 24th, 2013 Author: Death Penalty
News Category: Final Fantasy XV
Tags: , ,

Nomura recently did an interview with Dengeki, and while the bulk of the interview was going over information we already know, there were a few new nuggets for those of you absolutely starved for information. If any of you were worried about certain promised elements being removed from XV, it seems with each passing day that there’s less cause to fret as every interview seems to reveal that features promised years ago remain intact.

The world map and vehicles remain. Talking about the development of the game on the PS3, Nomura mentions the jump was necessary to allow XV’s vision to be realized. He mentions specifically that speeding up the car on the world map gave the PS3′s processor problems.

Summons are still returning, and must be fought to be obtained. Nomura also mentions something interesting about them being in a hierarchy or ranking system, with Leviathan being a high ranking summon of its kind, explaining its large size.

Using techniques used in Agni’s Philosophy, XV will be able to blur the lines between CG and gameplay by having their CG team make the foundation for cutscenes and then dropping them into real time. Nomura initially wanted to make all scenes that didn’t allow direct player control CG, but this was not possible.

Co-op, multiplayer and mobile device integration are things that the team is looking into. As stated previously, Nomura wants to include features that will allow players to continue playing.

The game is planned to shift to the Luminous engine, and they expect visual quality to increase. The current trailers have the game still running on the previous engine that they intend to move away from.

The theme of the game is bonds- or kizuna. The main story is said to be quite serious and dark, but nevertheless there will be many moments of humor interspersed throughout. Long ago, we were told that this game was about flashes of happiness in times of tragedy, and it seems now that Nomura’s promise that nothing has changed is true.

So when will we next see the game? The answer we’re hearing over and over again is the Tokyo Game Show. It begins on September 21st. We’ve waited seven years so far. Three months is nothing.

Final Fantasy XV Official Character Descriptions Released
Date: June 24th, 2013 Author: Death Penalty
News Category: Final Fantasy XV

Though we already know a good deal about the five men who compose our party so far thanks to wonderful fan translations, Square Enix has at last provided us with official English translations and descriptions, not to mention a brief summary of what the game itself is about and a piece of artwork showing off the cast.

ffxv_group

Summary
The only crystal left to the world lies in the Kingdom of Lucis. Upon striking a peace with the garrison state of Niflheim, Lucis rejoices in having at last brought the cold war to a close. Their celebrations, however, are premature. Under the guise of amity, Niflheim dispels the anti-armament runewall and launches a full-scale invasion of the kingdom. The peaceful lives Crown Prince Noctis and his entourage once knew are consumed by the flames of war as they struggle to mount a resistance.

Noctis Lucis Caelum
A childhood affliction endowed Noctis, heir apparent to the throne of Lucis, with the mystical power to see a heavenly light, through which he could sense others’ deaths. Noctis rejects rigid royal conventions and acts as somewhat of a renegade, much to the dismay of those who tend to him. Yet while “Noct” may act brash at times, he does so in defense of those loyal to him.

Gladiolus Amicitia
As lord of the noble House Amicitia, Gladiolus continues a line sworn to protect the crown. “Gladio” shares a friendship with Noctis that transcends birth and title, and his loyalty to his liege is born not of duty, but of brotherhood.

Ignis Scientia
Ever the unwavering voice of reason, Ignis was weaned on shrewd logic and a classical education from boyhood so that he might one day counsel the would-be king, Noctis. He applies the deep mutual understanding and trust they have built over time to help smooth over Noctis’s brusqueness with others.

Prompto Argentum
The puckish playboy Prompto befriended Noctis in his school days. He wears a chip on his shoulder as an outsider to the royal circle, but remains eager to do all he can for the cause.

Cor Leonis
A living legend of Lucian lore, Lord Commander Cor Leonis’s devotion to the art of war is surpassed only by that to his king. Little love is lost between the ill-starred stalwart and Noctis’s retinue, yet honor binds him to keep watch over the group all the same.

The interviews just keep on coming! Nomura’s talked once more, this time about some rather interesting details about why he’s chosen the art style he did and what we might expect from it. His commentary ranges from what we’ll see in the game’s architecture and setting to thoughts on hair and who he idolizes as an artist. It’s all very enlightening and contains a few more precious morsels of novel information. Read on for more!

Final Fantasy XV Details in Nomura Famitsu Interview
Date: June 12th, 2013 Author: Death Penalty
News Category: Final Fantasy XV
Tags: , , ,

The hits just keep on coming as a Famitsu interview with Nomura has revealed a few more interesting tidbits for us to sink our teeth into. While he has yet to do an in-depth interview as is his custom, he is giving us some surprising things to think about.

The fifteenth coming is not part of the game’s story. It was more of a joke specifically for the trailer and its name change reveal. Oh Nomura, you dirty tease.

Versus may be a series. That’s right, Nomura said that the line at the end of the trailer- “A world of the VERSUS epic”- was specifically meant to hint at the possibility of turning XV into a series. Don’t worry though, Nomura assures us that despite the fact that XV will seem like a single part of an epic poem, it will have its own climax. There will simply be room for more stories to be told.

Nomura is aware that large console developments like this might require a persistent element to keep people interested. To this end, they’re thinking about long-term online features that offer more beyond the short-term single-player experience. Nothing concrete yet, Nomura says he wants to weigh possibilities to see what fits.

Square Enix is interested in expanding Final Fantasy experience to the Vita and other mobile devices. We’re told they’ll be brand new Final Fantasy experiences and not the same old stuff.

The silence on XV is over. Expect to hear more about it from now on, especially at big events like the Tokyo Game Show.

They’re looking into making the Luminous engine XV’s main engine.
