Aside from Final Fantasy XIV which is a MMO, Final Fantasy XIII may be the last Final Fantasy to carry over the traditional style of gameplay. Yoichi Wada, president and CEO of Square-Enix, recently spoke with EDGE about the future of Final Fantasy. His statement might be of a bit concerning for long time Final Fantasy fans.
“I believe Final Fantasy XIII is going be something special, and that it’s going to be well received by the audience. But whether we are going to continue to internally create this type of game remains to be seen, because I actually feel that the team that was involved with Final Fantasy XIII should next move on to create and generate some ‘next generation’ forms of play.”
I’m all for change, but I could imagine that many Final Fantasy fans don’t want to see the series branch off from its traditional roots.
Do you want to see Final Fantasy move in a new direction? Or would you rather the franchise continue on the same path leaving the risk taking for spin offs?
