E3 appearances teased for Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts III

Plus, Hashimoto explains why Sony sold its Square Enix stocks.

Shinji Hashimoto

Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III might make an appearance at E3 next month, Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto teased.

“We would like to keep it secret,” Hashimoto said at Comic-Con in Thailand this weekend when asked if the two titles would make an appearance at next month’s expo. “It just only a few months from now (we think this part is a typo—surely Hashimoto knows E3 is not a few months away). I’m pretty sure you will be surprised.”

Hashimoto continued, “Actually not only do we have June, but there will be many events from now on such as San Diego Comic-Con, Tokyo Game Show, and others.”

One fan asked if Hashimoto could share more details about Kingdom Hearts III, but he turned him down, unfortunately. “We are sorry. They are secret,” he said.

Also of note, Hashimoto touched upon Sony’s selling of all of its Square Enix stock.

“We didn’t think this would become big news,” he said. “Back in 2001, Square Enix had financial problems and Sony bought our stocks. Now, the situation is reversed. Since then, we have had good support from our customers for our products, so Suquare Enix is back on its legs. But Sony has declined.

“The presidents of both companies had negotiation and resulted as everyone knew. We did not have argument. Since Sony once helped us, it was time we helped Sony back.”

Watch a Final Fantasy series montage trailer from Thailand Comic-Con below. Final Fantasy XV starts at 15:43. It’s the E3 trailers, but the gameplay trailer apparently has extended bits you won’t notice unless you’ve watched it several times.

Thanks, Mognet Central.

    “We would like to keep it a secret.”
    *Secret has been publicized*
    Yes Hashimoto, kept secret indeed.

    I don’t know if I’m excited or not. Square Enix, why does our relationship have to be so complicated?

  • Bob Obb

    I’ll be excited when I see a playable female in this sausagefest

    • Six

      Probably a little early to call out Kingdom Hearts III on that, but I agree about Final Fantasy XV. It’s actually a little off-putting.

      • Samsara09

        Well,I will miss the women,but it is nothing game breaking.Hope the males in this game have interesting personalities to compensate…

          Ain’t she a goddess of beauty?I find it rather funny.people protest about females in rpgs because of ze fanservice..but then when it lacks many females,they call it a “sausage fest”.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            It’s a fine line to walk, but it can be done. I think a lot of people become frustrated because it seems like any time a female is shown, she is sexualized in some way or another. So, it’s nice to see that not being the case this time.

            • Samsara09

              Perhaps.But honestly,I don’t mind it much.maybe it is because I am male,hehehhehe.
              an example,if I may: if a man can walk around without a shirt,why can’t a female?Because of the breasts?If everyone walked naked,people would be whining about whoever used clothes,instead.It is relative.

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Well, there is always a philosophical debate on why we agree to the circumstances around us and why we feel awkward when some things are out of the norm for us. For example, like you said… The man being able to walk around without a shirt, but not a woman.

                For starters, a male’s body has never really been seen as a work of art. Whereas, a female’s body has been. It’s more delicate, so I guess that makes it more sacred too in a way.

                We have simply just become accustomed to the rules society has laid out for us and one day we just accepted that clothing was the norm. A long time ago though, people would simply walk around without clothing since it was a more primitive time, but I suppose clothing is a way to show people we are a civilized people rather than primates.

                It’s the same reason why society frowns upon incest, despite it being quite common in China so many years ago, during the Middle Ages, and even before then. Society changes the rules of the game and people simply adapt to them. If you saw one person wearing a red shirt tomorrow, then two people wearing a red shirt, and one hundred in a week… It wouldn’t surprise me at all if society suddenly changed into believing that only red was an acceptable color for a shirt and people would conform to that since it’s easier to conform to what society wants rather than go against them (since this is usually a 5 to 1 scenario).

                • Samsara09

                  Animals tend crap on the incest taboo.it really is a construction of our species.Well,genetics show that descendants born from incest have less genetic variation and tend accumulate bad genes.That is the only real issue with me.if someone is gonna commit incest,at least don’t make the girl pregnant.And respect the age issues.

                  Yeah,even though the “fanservice” issue seems shallow,it is quite philosophic.Yeah,people treated the women as sacred,in no small part because of your ability to spawn a new life from just a cell.

                  I wouldn’t say never,since the moment people say that the human being was created on God’s semblance,we are already admitting the human body as a work of art,”the ultimate work of a God”.

                  The European Renaissance artists used to make really beautiful work of art based on the human body,like Micheangelo’s statue,David.

                  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                    This is true, but the work of God, as you put it, is being defiled from both sides. The people who believe in such a God have committed one sin or another with said body and have defiled it (see: tattoos, piercings, sex, etc.), and then you have the non-believers who have simply done it anyway just without believing in this God. David was a work of art, but I believe more people remember the Aphrodite or Venus de Milo, mainly because they are female.

                    It’s like the Mona Lisa. It seems that more people remember that art as well because she is female, as opposed to art of a male. This is also probably why more attention to detail is put into females as opposed to males in video games, I’ve noticed… At least as of recently anyway. Females definitely look more polished in one way or another and I’m not entirely sure why (from a technical standpoint).

                    • Samsara09

                      people think that since the body belongs to them,they can just ruin it as they so desire.Such petty thoughts are quite degrading.

                      I m not religious,but I have a point of view associated with them,at least in theory,ironically.I see everything in this world,including nature,the animals,and even our bodies,as a marvelous work of art.That is why I treat them with the care they are due.
                      yeah,I hate bugs,like mosquitoes and such pests.They are the “devil’s work”,lol,so i kill em without much mercy.

        • MrFinalgamer

          She went from making me feel awkward since I only saw Namine on her face to “…MAH WAIFU!” status after that last photo.

  • Anime10121

    Welp time to get hyped about 2 minutes of a trailer for a couple games I wont ever get to actually PLAY in my life time….

    Le sigh, why do I still like you Square :(

    At least Konami feeds this MGS fanboy with trailers at generally every event! And what do you give me, HUH? I cant play or watch PLEASE BE EXCITED Square :V

    • Samsara09

      Let’s see how this plays out.I am sure square is gonna reward us,the faithful fans who stood steadfest awaiting for this game the last 8 years.

    • Six

      I just want them to be done so I can get my TWEWY sequel.

      • Anime10121

        You read the interview at the link? Somebody asked about a potential TWEWY sequel… Hashimoto’s response:

        “A : Do you love this game? (surprised)

        I will check our staff about the possibility of the new one.”

        I will check our staff about the possibility…Check our staff…CHECK OUR STAFF….(surprised) they will never get to TWEWY 2 :(

        • Samsara09

          SE is rather stupid in this regard.

          They could make TWEWY 2,make a updated remake(like shin megami tensei Devil survivor overcloked and it’s sequel-break record) for those who missed the original…
          and release type-0 on the vita,as a remake.

          They have some of the best rpgs,they have many fans THROWING MONEY AT THEM FOR THESE,and SE doesn’t budge.

          • Anime10121

            Nope, people want that…cant let the people have what they actually want :/ (I bet you right now Square is second guessing whether Lightning’s saga truly is over or not)

            • Samsara09

              my god!how I wish I was a fucking hotshot there.If it were me,i would get those games done.

      • Samsara09

        oh,you too?Hohoho.Also,I wish we get a remake for TWEWY for 3ds,voiced and update.After all,it has been 8 years since TWENY was released.

        Rpg fans are are rather obsessed in having a tidy and complete collection,if a game has sequels or prequels.

  • Wolf Star

    Hashimoto continued, “Actually not only do we have June, but there will be many events from now on such as San Diego Comic-Con, Tokyo Game Show, and others.”
    To me it’s a Yes :3 I’m not sure about KH3 but Final Fantasy XV for sure!! :) square don’t fail me next month!!!

    • Anime10121

      Didnt they say the EXACT same thing last year at E3 though? And we’ve seen NOTHING at any of these events :(

      • Samsara09

        well,we did see the same trailer being shown in all the events D:

        • Anime10121

          lol true. Guess they never did specify it’d be NEW footage at any event. They just said they’d show it…which they did XD

          DAMMIT SQUARE! Biggest trolls in the gaming industry XD

    • Samsara09

      E3 is square’s chance to show us we weren’t wrong in believing in it!

      • Wolf Star

        I didn’t believe it until square proved me wrong last year. I hope they do the same thing this year.

        • Samsara09

          man,they need to pull their act together!
          1)Release TWEWY 2 for 3ds
          2)Release an updated TWEWY for 3ds(like SMT overcloked)
          3)release Final fantasy type 0 as a remake for Vita

          SE has these potential projects!And people throwing money at em!Can’t believe they will miss this!

          • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

            #3 is a must!

            • Samsara09

              If we live in an world where offer and demand dictate how things work,then we can get these games.

              ALL OF THEM ARE A MUST!

    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

      I want to believe. I still like Square. Please turn all this around.

  • Invisbin

    I thought they confirmed KH3 and FfXV for E3 already….could’ve sworn Nomura said so.

    • Anime10121

      They used words like “might” and “probably”, they never out right confirmed either of them will be there…

      • Invisbin

        I’m about 100.1% sure. He said he was showing off the models of the other characters.

        • Anime10121

          For KH? Youre talking about that OLD statement he made after the D23 showing? That was taken out of context, I cant remember exactly what he said, but he never explicitly said we’d see those models in the next trailer

          • Invisbin

            Idk where you’re getting this trailer business from, he stated that soon he’d be showing off Riku and Roxas’ models at the next event so…

            • Anime10121

              Soon never means “soon” to Square. And I assumed you meant showing the models of the other characters in an E3 trailer, if you meant just showing stills/renders, that’s even less likely considering Square no longer holds E3 press conferences.

              The games still unfortunately to early in development for them to show off renders for multiple characters other than Sora when the game is still 3-4 years off still. Just trying to be realistic here, this is Square were talking about :/

              • Invisbin

                This is also KH we are talking about.

                • Anime10121

                  Meaning?

                  • Invisbin

                    It doesn’t follow the same situation that final fantasy does.

                    • Anime10121

                      But it does… each “major console like game” has taken at least 4 years or so since they were teased for them to actually release. (besides 3D, which while fun and good, felt no where near as refined combat wise as BBS)

                      KH1 2002 -teased KH2 with Another Side Another Story”
                      KH2 2006-teased BBS with Sunset Horizons
                      KHBBS 2010
                      then we have the oddity that was KHDDD coming 2 years later.

                      But KH3 itself didnt become announced/teased until last year in 2013 + 4 years would be 2017, but given this is Osaka’s first time working on a console KH on an entirely new platform… I’m still kinda skeptical it’ll hit before 2018. Do I want it to hit before then, HELL YEAH (its my favorite series), but do I realistically expect it? Nope.jpg

                    • Invisbin

                      Um…Well I’m happy you feel that way?

                    • Anime10121

                      Um…I aint making you upset or nothin am I? I’m just conversing…you sound irritated, if so, my bad I guess :/

                    • Invisbin

                      Just confused on about what I said that made you go into a tirade.

                    • Anime10121

                      Not going on a tirade (dont even know what gave you that idea) when I get excited about something I like, I tend to just talk alot :/

                    • Invisbin

                      Ahuh

                    • Anime10121

                      Yeah it’s common among people on the net. Don’t imagine his dialogue as yelling think of it as a long speech. I do as he’s done here sometimes too. It’s a habit.

                    • Samsara09

                      Nomura said kingdom hearts was a yearly series.If you consider the Final mixes,re chain of memories and now the remixes,he is “keeping his word”,exactly as he said.

                      Well,there is at most an interval of two years without games,compare the releases and you shall see.
                      I think KH3 wlll be out by 2016-2017.

                    • Anime10121

                      I still think they’re gonna throw in a port of 3D to Playstation consoles at some point. And if it goes bi annual from this year on, it could be 2.5HD 2014, DDDHD (lotta D’s :P) 2016, and KH3 2017-2018.

                      I know he did promise 1 kh per year, but he did make that promise in like 2007-8 when times were a little bit better/easier and nothing lasts forever. Would be AWESOME as hell if it does continue though :P

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      I hope 3DHD is on Vita…AND WITH COMMAND MELDING THIS TIME AROUND!

                    • Anime10121

                      Yeah, definitely was NOT a fan of Dream Eater abilities :/

                    • Samsara09

                      I hate them.Having to grind those little fuckers is quite annoying.

                    • Samsara09

                      well,DDDHD would be silly,if they were gonna do it,they would have skipped the 3ds.

      • Samsara09

        Kh is so fucking badass it managed to make a friend of mine who rather dislikes rpgs into playing it…and he was rather obsessed with it,playing it nonstop.Ah,he also loved kh2.

        Especially kingdom hearts 2.Oh my god,that is an superb rpg!

        • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

          Seconded. KH2 is the showcase of the best an action rpg can offer.

              Can you believe there’s people who wanted KH to never do a sequel? And some who wanted the story to stay simple?

              • Samsara09

                The time travel in KH should be inspiration to anyone else who tries to use it.

                I think that the series getting more complex means it is becoming independent from both disney and final fantasy,becoming it’s own “self”,it’s own series.

                • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                    • Anime10121

                      In terms of everything…BBS :P

                      Heres how I’d rank em as far as plot goes
                      1.BBS

                      3.KHCoM

                      5.Days

        It did. I never really payed much attention to video games before then. I had a Genesis and a Nintendo 64, and a handful of games, but that was it.

        And then I saw this on TV one day.

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNvTWohCFjI

        That Christmas, I got a PS2 and a copy of Kingdom Hearts. A few weeks later I went out and got Final Fantasy X and IX, and not long after that VII and VIII.

          I was already into gaming… big Capcom fighter fan, few platformers here and there, and the year before a friend of mine had gotten me to try out the PSX FF games, but KH was the crack that got me hook line and sinker! I still remember the gamepro magazine scans when I was in the 8th grade that showed it off… I was like O.M.G that looks AWESOME :D

          • Samsara09

            well,I was rather “meh” to kingdom hearts even though i was a lunatic for rpgs and kingdom hearts 2.FFX was great,but it still didn’t pique my interest in the genre…
            then,I got tales of symphonia…later,tales of abyss,then,tales of vesperia…and i realized the genre was my home.

            What made me enter the series,for real,to the point of buying the games,was KH3D

            • Six

              JRPGs used to be my home. I absolutely worshiped the genre.

              I have no idea what changed. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

              • Samsara09

                maybe you got old?Oh well,I intend to stick with the genres,till the end.Maybe you just need to find a new reason to stick with the genre.

              • Anime10121

                I’ll tell ya, stagnation. Though luckily for me, I aint worn out quite yet :)

                • Samsara09

                  YEAHHHH!THERE AIN’T NO JUMPING THE SHIP!

                  talking about new projects,wendsday we will be getting zestiria’s 6th caracter!Man,2014,you are godly!

                    • Samsara09

                      every second wendsday of a month,from febuary to april,we got a new caracter.i though it was because of the date 12…but it wasn’t,since Layla was revealed on april 9.

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                The games changed.

                • Anime10121

                  This too, less seriousness and more silliness became the norm…

                  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                    Well, I can relate to his sentiments. I grew up on them as well, but they just don’t really leave as much of an impact on me any more. It just feels like I’m going through the motions when I play, but I’m hardly ever moved or actually impressed by them these days.

                    • Samsara09

                      I see what you mean,most rpgs these days aren’t having much of a impact on me,or making me elated for long.when I was a kid,I played abyss and symphonia nonstop.Man,8 walkthroughs on both,i think,with a hearty smile.Now,I can barely handle two walkthroughs,even from those two games.

                      I don’t think the passion I held for these games is dead,I think it just changed form.As we get older and have our new responsibilities and “caracter development”,things change.

                      i think you,Miss TetsuyaHikari,and you mister/miss Six,just need to reflect a little.No need to be hasty and make a decision you may regret latter,trust me.

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      That’s all true. But I still hope for that RPG that will show up one day and make me feel like a virgin.
                      *Reservoir Dogs ref*

                    • Samsara09

                      have a really cathartic experience.Yeah,I dream of one day get as elated as when I played those two games.
                      But honestly,rpgs those days too have changed their forms,but I still see in some of the series the “spirit” that characterizes them.Tales of,persona…they remained faithful to their origins,but Square tried to renegade it.

                      I think SE’s actions last gen are partly the reason so many feel disoriented and rather awkward with the genre.Not just them though.Many other companies followed this idea and ended up ruining things up.

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Being a renegade is always a double-edge sword.

                      you are male?You were talking about long hair earlier,so I thought you were female.

                      heheheheheheh,I am blushing.SO SORRRRRRY!

                  • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                    I blame all those Gust and Compile Heart and loli games. No offense fans of those.

                    • Anime10121

                      Welp, I like many of those too :P (Ar Tonelico and Neppu Neppu) :P

                    • Six

                      But you can’t deny that we could do with a little more Lost Odyssey and a little less moe moe kawaii desu, right? :P

                    • DesmaX

                      I’d rather have more Last Story, actually.

                      I’m sick of old-school battle systems (Not saying I dislike turn-based, it just need to be more streamlined)

                    • Six

                      I never played that one. Is it any good?

                    • DesmaX

                      Me neither; But combat seems kinda neat (Kinda reminds me of Gears of War, if it was a JRPG)

                      Maybe I’ll try it after finishing Xenoblade

                    • Anime10121

                      The combat was neat, but the story was REALLY dry and didnt really catch me like The Lost Odyssey did, which I found weird because I like the art direction in the Last Story MUCH better, but I just couldnt bring myself to finish it :(

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Last Story is ok, fun, hard sometimes, but lack originality. Xenoblade is the hard, original, vast, and VERY fun. Very deep too. I love that game. Wish I still had it . I want X too. But I have to stick to just PS games.

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      It’s good, ok length, but not great in terms of original.

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Exactly.

                    • Anime10121

                      But of course! I love my epics far more than I love my silly, especially considering they are becoming more rare on console each passing year :(

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Easier to do a screwball comedy the mock/parodies the RPG genre than a epic that tries new story elements like Nomura wants to do with 15.

                    • Anime10121

                      Yep, easier, cheaper, and less risk, which seems to be what a LOT of Japanese companies seem to be going for these days unfortunately…

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Well it mean less games for me to buy, but I guess I’ll…..
                      ….. save money?

                    • Six

                      Hopefully E3 and TGS will bring some good news. I’d kill for Microsoft to hook up with Mistwalker again. Funding another Tri-Ace JRPG would be nice too, as long as it’s nothing like Infinite Undiscovery.

                      Then there’s Nintendo with X and SMTxFE, and Sony’s got dat Project Beast.

                      Still gotta figure out what DQXI will be on. Probably 3DS.

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Please god revive Star Ocean or something Tri-ACE related. Mistwalker should come back to Square and help them, or co collab games.

                    • Anime10121

                      I’d love a Star Ocean similar to 2 with an epic theme SO bad! Heck I’d like one like 3, just NOTHING like The Last Hope…EVER again :P

                      Was it really part of the plot that she was traumatized and that’s why she droned on as she talked? Or did they make that up for the US version?

                    • Anime10121

                      It was part of the plot. The ending had a cutscene where she finally smiled and it was supposed to be this great big thing for her…. I lolwut’d.

                      They tried. At least she had a effing story.

                    • Anime10121

                      Yeah, they did at least try, and at least they didnt make Edge out to be Jesus like a certain other main character of a certain series :P

                    • Anime10121

                      Arumat was pretty cool (from what I remember) Faize and Edge though….bleh :P

                      And the battle system was ripped nearly straight outta 3, so in that regard…yeah, at least the battle system was fun xD

                      That I can agree on!

                    • Anime10121

                      Yep I’d love a Lost Odyssey sequel or heck anything from Mistwalker! I may not have cared much for the Last Story, but I’d take that as more of fluke (one off game that I couldnt get into) more than anything else!

                      And what the hell is Infinite Undiscovery I know, I bought it, hated it,and abruptly sold it.

                      Cant wait for X and SMTXFE! Takahashi’s never let me down What’s a Xenosaga 2 and I still got to get into the SMT series proper, but I’m looking forward to it after I finish tackling the Personas! Couldnt really get into the Souls series unfortunately though so I’ll pass on that.

                      And as for DQ…if its like VIII, I’ll take two, if its like IX..I’ll pass :/

                    • Six

                      I never played DQVIII, but I’ve heard it’s fantastic. IX was boring. Really, really boring.

                      I hope the success of Bravely Default convinces SE and/or Nintendo to bring over DQ VII, so I can have another game to add to my 3DS backlog with Bravely Default, Fire Emblem, and SMT IV.

                    • Anime10121

                      Yes, DQVIII was simply stunning! And I agree wholeheartedly about IX, stale, boring, not fun :/

                      My backlogue of 3DS games is gonna grow to unbelievable proportions when I finally get me an XL…

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      Oh good, I thought I was the only one. DQ IX was my first one, and I was so disappointed. Need to play DQ VIII at some point then…

                    • Anime10121

                      Yeah VIII was my first, and I’ve tried a few more in the series and none of them have really lived up to it imo… VIII was just too great :P

                      Won’t lie. I played the Conception 2 demo and loved the battle song and battle system. But I can’t get a game just for that.

                      Havent even tried it yet… I’ve downloaded it, but have no motivation to play it, especially when I’m playing through the awesomeness that is Persona 2 IS currently :P

                      And by GOD is this a lovely game with some fukn great music and characters! Gives me a sort of Xenogears like vibe (though I’m admittedly still VERY early in the game)!

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Enjoy. Persona/SMT are games that rarely piss off fans. I’ve tried a few of them Devil Summoner 2 and Persona 3.

                    • DesmaX

                      To be fair, it was bound to happen sooner or later. If they didn’t, someone else would (I mean, Atelier games were around since the PS1, I believe).

                      Persona 3 and 4 helped these types of games, at least

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Fair enough. And some try to tread new ground with their synth systems.

                    • Samsara09

                      rpgs these days are following the “cliche” Occidental ways of making games -‘focus on the graphic,screw the rest”-because those shitty “whores” sell.

                      This is making the games take too long to be made…with less rpgs to “oxygenate”,we are getting bored faster with the games.There is some age issues too,maturity,responsibilities,our own “character development”

                  • Samsara09

                    this is affecting all the genres and I would dare say even outside the videogame sector(like movies,books,ets),but since the rpgs are supposed to be cathartic experiences,our genre suffers the most for this

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      I have notice epic movies ruined by randomly long comedy scenes. Some comedy is good, but don’t ruin the epic by breaking or leaning on the 4th wall. I don’t want to be reminded I’m watching a movie/playing a game with parody crap.

                    • Samsara09

                      people have a wrong idea of change and rather than facing their mistakes,their pasts,coming to term with it,they feel they can change just by refusing these.

                      People think that the rpg genre had cliche stories,bad graphics,tedious turn based gameplay,and that these stopped the genre from growing.Look at it now.We have glorious graphics,bad stories,and rather tedius action base gameplay for the most part-the “mash X to win”.

                      We refused those caracteristics and the genre changed.but did it get any better?not much.Some can even say the opposite.

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      It’s a problem that will get a lot worst before it get’s better. But it will get better I think.

            I actually first got into the series when I was at Best Buy, and I saw this weird box art, and it had Square soft on the logo.

          Wow. That reminds me of how I started out too. I wasn’t interested in games cuz I was so poor I couldn’t get them. But once I played Chrono Cross I fell in love with RPGs and wanted to always play games that told deep stories. Then I started liking FFs, then Tales, then Wild ARMs and more and more. When i found out about KH I was mad thinking it was stupid. I’m glad tried it and grew to love it too.

            This implies the game’s antagonists are like the six god generals of tales of the abyss,each of them is an personal enemy to the protagonists…with noctis probably having two or even three personal antagonists.

            Of course,abyss also used this to trick us with a red herring.If this is inspired in shakespeare,there will be treason.So one of the enemies of Noctis might even be an ally,one he thought was beyond suspicions.they probably didn’t reveal every main caracter that day a year ago.

            • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

              I foresee some backstabbing. In Tales games there’s at least one backstabber since the days of Leon (a fav of mine, though I didn’t play his game). But with Noct story I think the betrayel may come from Stella and Noct by accident. As they want to help each other but they’re forced by their allies and countries to ruin each other’s plans.

              • Samsara09

                I think Stella will be an “Sasuke Uchiha”,a caracter whose development paralles the development of the protagonist and induces him to grow…and even though they stand on opposite sides,Stella’s possibly conflicting actions will probably aid Noctis,one way or the other.

                • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                  That’d be good. I hope they don’t just have the two of them play out a tired Romeo + Juliet storyline. They can be friend, though don’t need to be in love.

                  • Samsara09

                    well,things need to get heated and spicy.

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      If so, then pull a Catwoman + Batman and have Prompto have a affair with the black hair lady without telling Noct and his pals. And she’s pumping him for info but they love each other,.

                    • Samsara09

                      probable.Maybe he will redeem her…and then she will DIE,HIHIIHIIHIHIHIHHI…

        You didn’t like Edea or Beatrix?

        • Anime10121

          Beatrix wasnt designed by Nomura, and as far as Edea goes, she was in the same game as Rinoa :P

          • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

            My bad about Beatrix. What about Lulu. Her and Tifa were always hot to me. And her dress is very complex.

            • Anime10121

              Dont care much for Lulu (like her character, just dont care for her design) and never really cared for Tifa’s original design… Her Advent Children design was better, but her original? Nope :/ :P

              • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                Yeah, original Tifa’s look was too simple. But it was early 3D.

                • Anime10121

                  Well at the least, I did like her cowgirl outfit in the game…

              • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                B-but Lulu was so amazing. Kind of gothic a bit, plus the fur collar, and her hair.

                • Anime10121

                  She was amazing as a character, and I did like her hair…but thats about it as far as my appreciation for X’s black mage goes

                  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                    ;-; Mah soul. xD Oh well that means she isn’t fought for like a certain Naoto and Fuuka, and Marie.

                    • Anime10121

                      Fuuka’s the only one I’d fight for out that bunch, though I LOVED Marie’s design, she was a little to… um whats the word I’m looking for Tsundere(?) for me.

                      Naoto I just never found all that cute, I’m more team Yukie (Yukiko/Chie) <3

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      lol I am surprised so many people like Fuuka. I would figure most would like Mitsuru or god forbid the bitch Yukari. Mmmn… well Marie is a complex character so…

                      She is the best. <3 At least you aren't a Rise fan. UGH.

                    • Anime10121

                      Fuuka’s a geek, always liked geeks :P
                      Nope not a Rise fan, never been into idols or the “fake” culture that they bring. I do love her voice though… dat Laura Bailey <3

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Aww poor Fuuka. Geek is a harsh term. xD

                      Heh… I hate her voice. It is too bleh.

                    • Anime10121

                      Lol, I’m a geek and find nothing wrong with the word :)

      Seeing Stella would be nice, but after watching those extra few seconds, I know that she will not measure up to Noctis.

      • bloodiOS

        I’ll just wait and see (Caelum can go shove it.)

        • EX+

          Noctis is TEH MAN!
          Why do you hate him?

          • bloodiOS

            Because he isn’t a girl (and that duckbutt) ;p

            • EX+

              Honestly, I prefer male characters. Simply because of the fact that they’re less drama causing than female characters.

              • bloodiOS

                Male or female, it’s a Final Fantasy game, (melo)drama is guaranteed.

          • DarkLegacy

            Because he loves Stella more than Noctis

    Should’ve asked if perhaps the FF Agito mobile game is coming to the west. Last I heard, they were planning on localizing it.

    Of course that could just be air through their teeth. Like what they did with Type-0. But I still can’t but help be excited for it. It looks fun.

          We all play it and read new info on the game till June ’15.

    Guys do someone have the screenshot of the E3 conference leak? On the bottom says Xenogears Origins and The Legend of Zelda: the Fragment of the Nightmare.

    It also have infamous 2nd Son DLC etc.

    • Six

      C’mon, you can’t possibly think that’s real. Xenogears Origins? :P

      • LordKaiser

        Maybe that’s the name of the X game that looks like Xenoblade with Mechs.

        • MrFinalgamer

          But isn’t the name “Xenogears” owned by Square?

          • Anime10121

            Yes…Yes it is

          • LordKaiser

            Maybe they sold the rights? Unless SE is involved somehow and it’s another game apart from the X game.

          • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

            Remember Billy the gunslinger priest?

        • Solomon_Kano

          I would imagine Squenix holds the Xenogears trademark, so that’d be unlikely.

          Also: pending Japan’s English naming sense coming back to haunt them, “The Fragment of the Nightmare” sounds far too awful to be real.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Last time FFXV, and KH3 were leaked, so…

        They’ll show something. And it sounds like more will be shown in con over the rest of the year.

    • bloodiOS

      I’m not even sure which part is “new” in that footage…

      • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

        Me either. But I guess it’s just slightly longer scenes. Like some parts look like Noct of running more or attacking more with his limit break.

        • bloodiOS

          Yeah, I think the fight with Behemoth is was dragged out a tiny bit longer but err… nothing really to get excited about.

                    That’s the newest-ish scene I can find. Shows more of the height variation of the town and the town itself. I call the shot “Noct Speed.”

                    EDIT; This scene makes me feel like the game will play like Infamous Second Son but with KH and FF story elements and battle style.

          • MrFinalgamer

            Why not? If we add up this, with the tiny bit of footage from TGS, we might have gotten 2-5 new seconds of FFXV. ISN’T THAT EXCITING!?

            • bloodiOS

              If it’s 2-5 seconds of footage from an entirely different scene, yeah, but this is just 5 seconds of Caelum dashing to the left and then to the right. It’s… nothing worth talking about.

              • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

    “The presidents of both companies had negotiation and resulted as everyone knew. We did not have argument. Since Sony once helped us, it was time we helped Sony back.”

    Not to sound like a total jerk but help? That’s funny, SE? According to this:
    http://www.hd.square-enix.com/eng/news/pdf/14q4slides.pdf

    All I’m seeing is smartphone games to be released… SE is transitioning to mobile, folks!!! But wait! There’s FFXV and KH3 but god knows when SE will get to them… Even if they do, they also announced a Xbox version to ‘maximize’ their profit just for the sake of it… Like usual, I’m taking everything you said with grains of salt, Square Enix..

    • MrFinalgamer

      *STUPIDLY OPTIMISTIC FANTASY*

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        Certain project, you say?

        Type-0 = Almost got localized but instead turned into a mobile game

        Xenogears / Chrono = How long will we have to wait for sequels to these? Drakengard 3 gotten lucky…

        • MrFinalgamer

          I say, this E3 is the best, and last shot we have to seeing Type-0 an official localization. If there’s nothing shown. we can consider it dead at this point =/

          They already have a translation, and Namco proved that making an HD version of a PSP game isn’t hard…

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            It already is dead, unless they remake it.

            • MrFinalgamer

              Which is why I said that making a PSP port is so easy. They already have a translation. Putting HD on a PSP game, and releasing it on the Vita is so easy that even Namco did it for SAO.

              Not saying it WILL happen, but rather, it definitelly can happen

              • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                It isn’t likely to happen.

                • MrFinalgamer

                  Like I was saying through all of this thread: It’s definitely a possibility…and not even a far fetched one at that.

                  Regardless, BELIEVE~

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Especially on a dead previous gen system.

            • MrFinalgamer

              It would easily move a lot of Vita’s, and has been highly requested in the jrpgvita thingy, as well in the 3rd party production list. Sony knows people want it. Square already has a translation. It’s easy money for both. Just show a couple of trailers, make a bundle, this time around, fucking advertise it, and you have the Vita’s equivalent of Crisis Core (or as close as one can get, sales wise).

              • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

                People said CoD will move Vitas and look how well that turned out… Plus JRPGs are niche and its fanbase is small, as well as Vita’s consumer base is even smaller, nowadays otherwise we wouldn’t need the jrpgvita survey to begin with…

                • MrFinalgamer

                  COD did move Vitas. Not a lot, specially after word of mouth got of how terrible it was, but it did move quite a few. It is one of the best selling games on the platform after all (I think second best, with Uncharted being first).

                  Borderlands 2 is selling quite well too, what the Vita needs is a quality, big name title, to be bundled. Type-0 is the perfect candidate.

                  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

                    Did Cod Vita do its usual CoD numbers? Nope… Doubt Activision will make another CoD game on it again… All those best selling titles should have made Vita topping the 3DS but did not happen…

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      There’s a lot of factors for that not happening. 3DS having all the heavy hitters already out, and the big name games not being too good. They sold well…until word of mouth got around their quality (as well as reviews). Not to mention the memory card problem people talk about time, and time again.

                      Borderlands 2 bundle is doing great so far, but after that, whats next? THAT’S what Sony needs to answer this E3. Type-0 would help being a big name title of actual quality, and being so different to FFXIII, it wouldn’t have to fear of the bad reputation it left on the series.

                      I’m not saying that it WILL happen. But rather, it wouldn’t be too surprising/random to see it being announced at E3, or Gamescom (or just before the fan translation releases).

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Let’s face it. 3DS has the handheld market on lock. Vita, at this point, can only hope to turn a decent profit, not beat 3DS. Unless suddenly they pull a Sega Dreamcast and people get hurt by 3DSs.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      And with Type-0 that would help. I know this. Also, FFX actually did quite decently on the system, specially with taking into account it’s very small user base, so the interest is there. You might say that it sold like crap on NA…but you gotta remember how a lot of Vita users have a PS3/4. With that in mind: Would you rather have the version with a free artbook (or whatever it was), or the Vita version with no extras. Squeenix left it to fail when they did nothing (specially the lack of a bundle over here).

                      With the interest being there, you gotta remember. Porting a PSP game is incredibly easy. So easy that Namco even did it for the SAO game. Square already has a translation. So really, it’s easy money for minimal effort. Sony would take the marketing (or attempt, since they suck at it), and that would help try to get SOME money on the Vita.

                      It’s not too far fetched to believe Type-0 could come over.

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      I do hope it does. What you’re saying adds up. But if all that is there, what’s still holding them back? Is there still something in the way prevent them getting these old games out?

                    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

                      You do know Sony could just avoid the Vita all together for E3 like what happened last E3 where the major focus was on the PS4.. Answering E3 wise, they would rather look at and work with indies to make exclusive games for the Vita for the west.. If they are going to announce it. they wouldn’t do it at E3/Gamescom because they are still niche thus wouldn’t look at it as a ‘system-seller’.. Look at Tales of Hearts R, Top game of jrpg vita… Can you honestly look at it as a system-seller from a non-tales non-JRPG fan?

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      Oh, I’m VERY aware of SCEA god awful treatment of the Vita. All I’m trying to say is that it’s not too far fetched to think that it could be a thing.

                      Tales of Hearts R is quite different from Type-0. If they showed Tales, people would think stuff like “Oh, what’s with this anime BS, blah, blah, bla”. Type-0 is quite different. Not only does it have the FF name (which that alone can turn some heads), but just how different it is to the rest of the series could definitely make people interested. Have a good coverage, and you’re good to go.

                      Not saying it WILL happen. But it wouldn’t be too shocking if it did.

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Hearts maybe not save Vita alone. But there have a been a few games on vita RPG-wise that did turn heads. Ys Celceta was good. So were the Persona ones I hear. I hope that Hearts R does really well so the Vita will be a new home for RPGs with anime style but deep plot.

                    • Elvick

                      Did CoD Vita’s budget the usual CoD budget? Nope…

                      Don’t be daft. Stupid ass comparison to make.

                      The game we actually got was made in like a month or some such nonsense. Because the original team who was going to do a game, spent all their time trying to port an engine only to fail. Which didn’t leave much time left to actually make a game for when what’s their faces took over.

                      And, CoD Vita was premium priced too. It most definitely was profitable.

                    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

                      Budget or not, did it move lots and lots of Vitas? Many deemed it as Vita’s system seller… Some people despise it because of it’s problems but most don’t care because CoD name is on it which Activision is using it to sell, sadly…

                    • Elvick

                      It and AC3: L pushed units yes. But after that SCEA did absolutely nothing at all for Vita in the west. So it fell off. Hard.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Type-0 was not turned into anything. Agito is a prequel.

        • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

          I think Xenogears and Chrono stuff is an non-issue for them. I think they see it as a finish project that doesn’t need revisiting anymore. I don’t agree. But they do have other stuff on their plate.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Yes of course they are going mobile. We all know this. Some of us choose to ignore it though.

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        It’s better for one to accept and move on…

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          I accept it but I sure as hell don’t like it.

    • DesmaX

      They helped Sony by selling the stocks.

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        That was entirely Sony’s decision…

        • DesmaX

          Yeah, but that helped them.

          It’s a mutual relationship. “You wash my back, I kick yours.”


          Wait a minute

          • MrFinalgamer

            Sounds like the relationship between Ramsay, and Theon. Question is, who’s who?

    • Six

      ‘maximize’ their profit? They are a business, aren’t they?

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        Hence why moving into the mobile space seem sensible to them..

    • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

      Aren’t you being a little too critical here, Raiu? There was nothing noteworthy said. Mutual benefits for selling the stock and making quick liquid cash, it’s a “help” certainly. Besides, isn’t KH3 and FFXV to get exclusive DLC for PS4 anyway?

      I mean if you’re this critical now, what will you do when Square Enix shows up at Microsoft’s conference with FFXV and KH3 this year?

      • MrFinalgamer

        “exclusive DLC”

        Oh god, don’t tell me KH will be tainted with that horrible practice! D=

        • $61526767

          Not really.

          I’m sure Kingdom Hearts will stay the same as always with no dlc. lol

          • MrFinalgamer

            …But you can bet your ass I’ll keep the tradition of Final Mix being exclusive to Japan! =(

            • $61526767

              Lmao

              At least we are getting Final Mix 2.5 HD localized. I don’t know about another HD remake of DDD (Dream Drop Distance). I can only hope.

            • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

              2 FMs are west side now though.

              • MrFinalgamer

                Well, I doubt Square would go out of their way to get rid of said content. That would just be fucked up.

                Also *3. Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts 2, and Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep have Final Mix.

                • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                  yeah but I thought only KH1’s FM version was in 1.5 and KH2’s FM version in 2.5 but all the rest of the stuff in the point 5s was regular content just HD-afied.

                  • Bobby Jennings

                    Actually we haven’t even gotten BBS FM yet.

                    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                      Exactly, even in 2.5, only kh2 will be fm version.

                    • Bobby Jennings

                      Wow, that sucks.

                • Bobby Jennings

                  Well he said “now” so that would only include KH1.

          • Bobby Jennings

            I’m sure it’ll get DLC this time around.

            Money money and more money.

            • $61526767

              I honestly can’t think of what type of content they could pull out for kingdom hearts for me to buy.

              • Bobby Jennings

                It’s not like you have to buy it though.

                It can be anything, like keyblades, secret bosses, more worlds.

                Anything honestly.

                After XIII-2 I see campaign/Story DLC being a trend for SE.

        • bloodiOS

          Probably more of exclusive on-disc contents, like… native 1080p xP

        • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

          Yes, yes it will. Embrace it! Besides, I don’t particularly see a problem with such if it brings cool things. Mayhaps the old “Final Mix” can be DLC for a change. Though I’m hoping for “Sidequests” and Side stories as content myself.

          • Guest

            I’m hoping he will. He still seems to have some new ideas. And seems to switch things up the way I like, thru story and characters. Not by constantly reinventing FFs with each game.

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        Critical? Maybe… Owing a small percent of stocks ain’t helping Sony much… It’s not like Square Enix are demanding them not to sell… It’s up to whoever owns the stock percent to do what they want with it…

        Square Enix already announced FFXV and KH13 for Xbox last E3 so nothing surprises me anymore from SE… Hell… DLCs? FF13-2 and LR have DLCs so I can see it happening someday…

        • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

          This is true though they may have helped facilitate a buyer and such for Sony to sell said stock, who knows. Either way, Adam Boyes was up on stage announcing dat exclusive content for PlayStation for both KH3 and FFXV so really, it’s not the end of the world by any stretch. Just relax and let the hype flow through you again. Nomura-sama will save Square Enix xD!

          • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

            “Adam Boyes was up on stage announcing dat exclusive content for PlayStation for both KH3 and FFXV”
            And this is where I say “Not a chance”… Whatever that exclusive content is will end up not being exclusive at some point… I rather Adam just announce that secret JRPG Sony Japan has been working on but I can’t see that happening as well..

            Hype was long gone for me… There is nothing SE can do to revive it..

                  I’ve been there. Especially since around here people like you mock you for what games you like. So when 15 doesn’t come out, I got to here about it from assholes.

                  Best thing I find to get over the dev-disappointment is to focus on another game (or hobby). For me that’s Tales or Batman animated movies or Marvel live movies.

            • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

              Adam wouldn’t announce first party games =p but well, it’s a shame your SE hype is dead. Oh well, they (SE) reaped what they sowed.

          • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

            I’m hoping Nomura, with his new ideas about characters and story will do just that. He does things how I like, reinvent story elements and some other features, but leave core FF stuff alone so it stays nostalgic on some level too.

  • Anime10121

    I liked XIII-2 :(

    Caius and Yuel alone redeemed that saga for me. Had it not been for those two characters (and to a smaller extent Serah) I would not have liked XIII’s saga that much…

  • Samsara09

    Man,I LOVED CAIUS.He is one of the best antagonists of the series.he is the only one who made made sincerely feel sorry for him…and it even left me rather troubled to have him as enemy,especially because of his devotion to Yeul.His final scenes almost made me cry.

    Yeul was another one.Her sweet personality,her love for Caius and her devotion to her fate,even though she would suffer eternally were quite touching.

    Were it not for them,I would consider the trilogy a failure….

    5* + Arena (and Arena 2 and DAN)

  • MrFinalgamer

    A persona lover that acknowledges shit besides P3, and (ugh) P4!? YOU MAH BUD!

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    That acknowledges 1 and 2IS and 2EP*.

  • Surgeon of Death

    Persona 4 wasn’t that bad(could have been a little darker tho). I know they are kinda milking it but it was still awesome. DAT NEW WORLD FOOL. P1 AND both parts of two HAD AMAZING STORIES AND CHARACTERS. I love em.

  • Surgeon of Death

    Cool. TWEWY needs a sequel BTW.

  • Surgeon of Death

    I always count the 2 parts as one. Bad habit. Also arena too. Not too good at fighters tho.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Oops I counted the 2 parts as one as well. The 5 included Persona 5.

  • MrFinalgamer

    It gets the point across…

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    But if somebody acknowledge P4A you would still bitch at them because they didn’t mention 1 or either part of 2. What you truly meant was 1 and the two parts of 2.

    I WANT IT SOOOOOOOOOO BAD.Hopefully we see it a E3

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Any Persona fan does. xD

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    While I haven’t played P2 I would say P2 was better on the story and characters. Nothing against P1 but eh.

  • MrFinalgamer

    One of my problems with P4 is really how overrated it is, specially compared to others. I wouldn’t really mind it being light hearted, if it still was good, which it was, but it could’ve been better, Though I mainly HATE 2 aspects. One being that “death” in the game, and the BS around it afterwards, and the other being the Shadow Self concept not being as good as that found in P2.

    But this is a Square thread, so we should stay on topic =P

  • MrFinalgamer

    He said he owned 4 (technically 5) Persona games in his Vita, and saying he loved the series. With this in mind, me saying he acknowledged stuff, besides P3, and 4 is still correct, since Arena isn’t available on the platform.

    BTW there was really no point to this discussion…

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    You know what I say is true. You are on P2’s dick, and are upset with the P4 milking.

    Hmm? I just love Rei.

  • MrFinalgamer

    I love P2, and I do hate P4’s treatment, doesn’t mean that what you said is right. Really, would I care that much if he mentioned Arena? Not really, it’s fairly known. You should just stop assuming everything like your omnipotent to what everyone’s intentions are…

    …About what? That I like P2? That I don’t like P4’s milking? I believe that’s already been said…twice.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    That if he hadn’t mentioned P1, P2EP, or P2IS you would not have been “A persona lover that acknowledges shit besides P3, and (ugh) P4!? YOU MAH BUD!” despite had he also mentioned P4A that would have also been other than P4.

  • Surgeon of Death

    Wait…………. Whats your opinion on the FF13 series?

  • MrFinalgamer

    If one mentions P4, chances are, they already know the existence of Arena. Like P2. You can’t know about one, without the other (unless you live under a rock). I mostly put those two together, so EXCUSE ME PRINCESS for doing that.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    You are missing the point.

  • MrFinalgamer

    Not my favorite in the series, but still like it. Most of the characters I find bland, but I overall like the game quite a bit. Love the battle system, although it’s BS how you have to go through over 20 hours, before you can fully play the game. The story might be a bit messy at times with some unexplained terminologies, but I liked the plot.

    Haven’t played the sequels, so can’t talk about those =P

    Seconded.

  • Surgeon of Death

    Didn’t even bother playing it. Wish they didn’t try to sell Lightning so hard. She should be able to sell herself (not in “THAT” context tho lol)

    Her games were just… too unpolished and too just weird.

    Be that as it may. We’re all fellow gamers. Let’s be cool.

    He’s not a gamer he is a bucket of scum.

  • Surgeon of Death

    But the potential was definitely there. This is what happens when they take inspiration from CoD AND MOVIES.

    Minus Dissidia! That game’s awesome no matter what!

    I only played Persona 3 and Devil Summoner 2. Is Q that new fighting game or something else?

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    It could have been amazing. Like all games can be. But they aren’t executed well all the time.

    That’s not really any one character’s game though. Or if it was I would consider it being FF1 because Chaos.

    The 3DS spinoff with characters from 3 and 4

    ….Ugh the pain!!! You are shooting me so many times, I must look like swiss cheese now. The new fighting game is a sequel to another fighting game called Arena. The sequel being Arena Ultimax or as I call it Arena 2. Q is the EO Persona game.

  • Surgeon of Death

    Agreed.

    My bad. I’m not huge on Persona stuff. What’s EO?

  • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

    Rare to see characters in the same game like that.

    *points gun to head* EO is a dungeon rpg from Atlus.

  • Pyrofrost

    EO is Etrian Odyssey, mate. A damn good game if your into pure dungeon crawlers.

    Keep in mind, dungeon crawlers are very different from JRPGs if you decide to look into it.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    It is a spin-off so eh.

  • MrFinalgamer

    To be fair, EO is fairly niche.

    Mmm…
