    http://www.finalfantasy.jp/

    I'm only finding a JP site so far. Not sure if they'll do anything for NA or EU.

    Thats because mainstream console gaming has been around for about that long... Which is why I don't understand people that say "You're too old for games." - that couldn't be anymore wrong. lol

    I always thought it'd be interesting if Amano completely led the art team for a FF game, transvestites and psychedelic characters for all!

    Considering the timing of this side, I'm pretty confident a major title will be announced next week, possibly XIII-3 or something else entirely.

    Edit: Also this:

    "But the decline in Japanese titles was almost humiliating. This has been a week where I worried daily about how we can fix this." The company did, however, have a number of Japanese titles on display, including Final Fantasy XIII-2.
    Has me expecting they're going to make more effort this year, quote from a SE rep about most of their major titles coming from Eidos last year. http://gamasutra.com/view/news/35160...tles_at_E3.php

    So just heard on the 8-4 podcast that the game for the 25th anniversary is a game that will contain all the FF characters and would be a game with "classes", so most likely an RPG and it'd be for IOS.
    Not sure if old news or how confirmed it is.

    From Gamefaqs (note that these are just rumors taken from the JP FF wiki):

    Characters (initial abilities in parenthesis)

    Light Warriors: Sol (Counter), Sarah, Aegis (Red Magic Lv.1, Cover), Dusk (White Magic Lv.1)
    Dark Warriors: Nacht (Flee), Diana (White Magic Lv.1), Alba (Black Magic Lv.1), Glaive (Focus)

    Chapter Format

    Each chapter has a level cap, a guest character (who has a fixed job based on the chapter's job theme), and a fixed party. The final chapters allow you to choose your party with no guest naturally. Clearing a Free Scenarios will unlock a job, so skipping some will result in less jobs. During the prologue Sol and Aegis travel with Diana and Glaive instead of Sarah and Dusk, the story quickly splits them up into Light and Dark Warriors.

    Prologue
    Guest: Ergo (Sol's party)
    Level cap: 20
    \/
    Tale of Dawn
    Guest: Ergo (Sol's Party)
    Level cap: 20
    \/
    Tale of Light I - Dragoon
    Guest: Barbara
    Level cap: 30

    Tale of Darkness I - Ranger
    Guest: Mysterious Old Man
    Level cap: 30
    \/
    Tale of Light II - Bard
    Guest: Edwardo
    Level cap: 40

    Tale of Darkness II - Dark Knight
    Guest: Gram
    Level cap: 40
    \/
    Tale of Light III - Memorist
    Guest: Argy
    Level cap: 50

    Tale of Darkness III - Dancer
    Guest: Matoya
    Level cap: 50
    \/
    Tale of Light IV - Knight
    Guest: Gawain
    Level cap: 60

    Tale of Darkness IV - Ninja
    Guest: Jinnai
    Level cap: 60
    \/
    Tale of Twilight - Devout & Magus
    Guests: Sophia (Sol's party), Masked Man (Nacht's party)
    Level cap: 65
    \/
    Final Tale, part 1
    Guests: None. Party switching between all 8 characters is now available.
    Level cap: 70
    \/
    Final Tale, part 2
    Level cap: 99


    Job System

    Shared jobs: Freelancer, Warrior, Monk, Thief, Red Mage, White Mage, Black Mage, Summoner
    Light jobs: Dragoon, Bard, Memorist, Knight, Devout
    Dark jobs: Ranger, Dark Knight, Dancer, Ninja, Magus

    They're split, yes. When a job is recieved, it is only accessible by characters present at the time. Sol can become a Knight but never a Dark Knight, equally Nacht can become a Ninja but not a Dragoon.

    The system is expanded from FFV. Each job has 20 job levels, and they'll learn abilities on certain levels. Jobs like Warrior will learn their skills by level, while mages require you to purchase the spell or beat the summon boss. Levels are capped at 3 initially, and you have to spend "JP" to increase the caps for each individual job. So this means you'll have to specialise your characters if you want to mix and match the most potent combinations. You earn a fixed amount of JP automatically as you progress through the story. Like FFIV:TAY, there's challenge dungeons that all reward a single Moogle Coin in the same manner as Adamantites. Moogle Coins can be exchanged late in the game for 3 JP each. There's a post-game boss that drops these, so there will be an opportunity to max out characters for people into that.

    There are more ability slots than FFV. You initially have 2 slots to customise with previously mastered abilities, and at certain job levels that'll eventually increase to 4. This doesn't mean you can wield every spell with one character however; abilities now have a cost. Something like Flee will only consume one slot, but Black Magic will consume 2.

    And for anyone who has noticed that there's less jobs than FFV, don't worry, these jobs learn many more abilities. Mineuchi and Mighty Guard, moves learned by the Samurai and Blue Mage in FFV, are both learned by the Knight. The Red Mage learns Spellblade in addition to his four levels of Red Mage and Dualcasting.

    There's more balance to the system too - Rapid Fire now consumes MP, as do many skills. And for those who have noticed that the famous Rapid Fire + Dualwield combination is only compatible with the Dark Warriors, fear not, for you can combine the Knight's two-handed with the Warrior's double attack for a similar effect.

    There's a new type of ability system called Fusion Abilities. These abilities allow a character to combine two of their skills to produce a unique effect. For example, a character that can cast both Fire and Cure can use the F-Ability Magic Bomb, which deals non-elemental magic damage to the enemy. In order to learn the spell, the character must equip the spells (Red Magic Lv.1 or both Black Magic Lv.1 and White Magic Lv.1), and then it'll be learned by I think random chance whenever you cast Fire or Cure. There's roughly 50 of these to discover!

    PS2 games are still being made in Japan (well NA, too, but they're all Sports/Music/Movie tie-ins), as well. That FF Brigade is a mobile title they're working on atm.

    I like how the site has a picture of a american flag that leads to a uk link. FFX-2 page has screenshots of FFX. Why the fuck is the DS music game featured but not the two Dissidia games. They don't even have the decency to feature high resolution screenshots of the games, in fact some look like they are ripped off youtube videos.

    Yeah, according to the NA site both VII & VIII came out in 1997. Did no one proof read the site before letting it go live?
