    Mobius (Mevius) Final Fantasy

    I didn't see a topic for this (working under the assumption that people are correct and this isn't the super secret special game that is to be announced).

    Saw kotaku thread. looks dumb and retarded. By the way, the "key feature" is map exploration. Oh did i mention the map exploration is completely Automated. Dude looks like he got his fashion design from vahn and kujas brand clothing. Article mentions going back to "warrior of light roots", Aka ff1. Also how the fuck do you hold a two handed sword one handed?

    Well, from what they've said:
    although you select the places you want to go on the map and you are automatically transported there, the exploration of the fields, the strategic battles and the leveling systems conform to the orthodox FF games. The scenario is by Nojima so the story will be on par with a numbered game, featuring refined plot twists.
    It looks like it is like FF13-2 or Dragon Age: Inquisition. You select an area on the map and it takes you to that zone. So the exploration of the map is probably referring to each unique area and not the overall map. Not to say that the areas will be DAI sized, just the type of travel between disjointed areas.

    What confuses me most about titles like this is that they push the idea of "console-like" experiences on a smartphone (which isn't what I want, personally), but they don't release a console version. Do they really believe that a full priced console experience on smartphones and tablets will sell well? I feel like putting the game on PSN, Live, and Steam would be much better for their western audience (while the iOS/Android route may be better for Japan). There are cross platform engines that would allow you to build versions for all of those platforms. My guess is they put it out at a pretty insane price point (at least, insane for mobile users) and it sells poorly, no matter how good it is.

    SquareEnix stated that it was "a new home console RPG" and "was very clear about it being an RPG, not a remake, and on home consoles". So this game checks two of the boxes, but not the third. Matsuda made a pretty clear separation between home consoles and portables (and differentiated home console from smartphones and tablets).

    In some ways, I think seeing more games from SquareEnix is a good thing (although I'd prefer to see more IPs and less Final Fantasy spinoffs). Final Fantasy XIII was a pretty huge undertaking, in terms of manpower working to finish the game. When Final Fantasy XIV failed, they had to once again devote a number of resources to fixing the game. With those two projects completed and scaled back, they have a fair number of developers available. Keep in mind that SquareEnix as a company is a developer and publisher that includes their subsidiaries. When they announce games, sometimes they're only publishing, sometimes they're internal from Japan or Europe, other times they're contracted out to other companies.

    Remember that there were over 300 people working on XIII at one point. XIV also had a huge team (to make it broken, then fix it). SquareEnix made a point of how they believe the large development team and time frame caused problems with the game and stated that they would work with smaller teams in the future. From what I've read in that past, SquareEnix had somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 "developers" shortly after the merger (SquareEnix as a corporation employees something like 3500 people). With Type-0 HD and this game supposed to release in Spring 2015, there are development resources freed. We know that XV is in full production now and Kingdom Hearts is in some stage of production. Take into account outsourcing and I can see them having a few smaller teams working on smartphone / tablet and mobile games and still have the resources for a larger (~100) person team working on a full title without compromising the quality of the other two large titles we know are in production.

    Anyone who claims they wouldn't play this is lying to themselves.

    To me, it is looking more and more like a Lightning Returns skin for FF1.
