According to Square-Enix’s Yoshinori Kitase the idea of a Final Fantasy game with motion controls isn’t too appealing for the company.
“These new type of controllers are very interesting, but we’re not sure that people would like to spend up to 100 hours playing a conventional Final Fantasy title with these type of controllers.” explained Kitase.
“It could be too exhausting if you were always swinging a sword around for battles. So we will have to see what the future holds.“
I haven’t played No More Heroes 2, but I really liked in the original the idea of using buttons for attacks and then a quick motion for a finishing move. I wouldn’t mind seeing something similar in a Final Fantasy game.
In the mean time, if you want to get some Final Fantasy action mixed in with your love or interest for motion controls you will have to pick up Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers on Nintendo Wii.
