    Wow, they got Tony Shalhoub for this?

    Seems like an odd fit, but I'm willing to give it a chance.

    If it's more of Bravely Default and less of XIII, I'm in. :D

    so it's a action RPG using final fantasy's name. Final Fantasy is a turn based RPG..... Some one needs to remind square :unsure:.

    Looks a lot like the DS remakes of the classic Final Fantasy games, I'm "game" for that.

    FF XII was ARPG too, I think (I haven't played it, though)

    :blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink::blink: you may want to try and play that game before you post a comment like that......
    Mind you was a terrible turn base system, in my opinion.

    Sort of like a new Crystal Chronicles with more options maybe? Either way, looks like it could have potential.

    Seriously, remove Vaan from FFXII and it's a solid game. The gameplay is quite nice and the story isn't that bad if Vaan is removed from the game.

    As for the reveal, I'm good to go for an FF game for the 3DS. Always ready for new games :)

    Pretty sure they were just trying to ride the Tidus train.

    Seems interesting.
    Needs more Crystal Chronicles though.


    Turn based is archaic and only a few devs can actually properly do it these days. Final Fantasy as a whole has awful turn based combat. It's a very good thing for them to move away from it.

    Indeed. But the voice acting is present for most the game. But I digress. I still like FFXII, since the gameplay in general is solid. If they made a remake for XII, I'd buy it sooner than I bought FFX/X-2 HD.

    seeing how much shit they announced I wonder why they didn't have their own 5 munites during the Sony and Ninty conference
    If this game is like Crystal Chronicles I am buying it. Been waiting for a long time.

    Hopefully this doesn't mean they considered the VI remake for Android to be a serious release and will eventually do a proper 3D remake of the fucking game... I was hoping they would announce it this year. Meh.
