If, like me, you are a die hard fan of the Final Fantasy franchise, you will be happy to hear that there is new news! First, we have the E3 trailer for the next iteration of FFXIII: Lightening Returns. Second, we know when we’ll know more about the next Final Fantasy.
Yeah, FFXIII was a bit of a fail. Okay, a lot of a fail. But it had some nice elements. I definitely liked FFXIII-2 more; it was great to be a time traveller, but I still wasn’t as happy with it as I should have been. Now, I must say that I’m a bit sick of most of the characters. Maybe Lightening was the most popular character (despite her irritating sister), but I’m not too sure she needs another whole game! In any event, the game will be launching in Europe on 14 February 2014 – I know what I’m getting for Valentine’s Day. Here is the E3 trailer.
Next in the news, Square Enix will hold a Q&A for media titled “Future of Final Fantasy” at E3 on Tuesday, 11 June. Seeing as Sony is having their big event the day before, I wonder if they will also give more information about the new Final Fantasy coming to the PS4, or if they will save that for Square Enix’s event.
I hope that they go back to the old vibe of Final Fantasy. I’m sorry, but it just doesn’t seem right without Cid as your engineer. Or without a much more open-world than the last few games. Are you keen for the next era in Final Fantasy? Is this one of the franchises that you love or hate?
