there is a new RPG on the wii slated for 2011 called [strike]Final Fantasy[/strike] The Last Story

last-story-660.jpg

It looks like final fantasy, it smells like final fantasy, but does it have that final fantasy taste?

Well, the director is Hironobu Sakaguchi, you may know him from being the director and original concept behind final fantasy 1-6, the producer of final fantasy 7 and FFT, and the executive producer of final fantasy 8-X.

Oh and Nobuo Uematsu is doing the music

The game is supposed to be a "new form of RPG", and you play the role of a group of mercenaries on the island of Ruli.

there is a trailer too

    I've been looking forward to this for a while. Nintendo is giving it a big push in Japan, with a new Wii SKU.

    ...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.

    Man that logo really makes it pretty clear just what kind of people they are aiming it at, anyway that looked pretty neat. Hope its good, and if it is that it gets a release in europe.

    The artist was the designer for Drakengard, if the style looks familiar.

    Will definitely try if localized, the Wii's in dire need of good RPGs.

    Last Story is not a very subtle title. That said, Lost Odyssey was really good and the soundtrack was great. Even if this game isn't good, the music probably will be. But I don't have a Wii anymore and I'm not really interested in getting another, so it doesn't really matter much.

    Fantastic, finally the Wii gets a greyish brownish game.
    But to be honest, the few opinions I have read of Xenoblade were so stelar that wether Last Story is good or bad has become irrelevant to me.

    yeah I kinda got that

    just saying, you don't make Final Fantasy, save your company

    and then make a new RPG with a completely different name

    Thing is, starting with 6 just about every Final Fantasy is a new RPG, but they give them the same name and throw in some Chocobos and Bahamut so that they can sell them all. It's a lack of confidence that they're capable of making huge titles. And, incidentally, why I don't hold Square in high regard whatsoever. Which is me putting it nicely.

    At any rate, the guys working on this still have a lot of credibility as far as I'm concerned so this Last Story thing could turn out for the better. I actually have higher hopes for it.

    I have a feeling if by the time Final Fantasy 6 rolled around they changed the name of every game to come out afterward

    they wouldn't do well financially

    if it ain't broke, don't fix it

    They're good to decent games, depending on who you ask and which ones in question, and would do fine without the brand name. They could've still made "Final Fantasy titles" but also could've showed some credibility rather than cling for dear life to a title.

    Because the game buying public is so adept at checking out new IPs...oh wait. If they give me new games they can call it whatever the hell they want. As long as they don't give "same game, same name" that other major developers are so keen on.

    Well, Xenoblade was shown at E3 '09 back when it was called Monado. Hopefully Nintendo didn't change their minds.

    Team Ico's built a good following based on who's made the games rather than the name. One of the selling points of Bayonetta was that it was from the dude responsible for DMC. Everyone was going nuts when David Jaffe said his next game was supposed to make the player cry.

    There was a time when the brand mattered, but that time is quickly passing if it hasn't already.


    Back to the topic at hand: Anyone else get the feeling this is going to be like Dragon Age had a threesome with an FF between 1-6 and Gears of war?

    Ok so this game "looks awesome" - the standard response for every Final Fantasy Game that every comes out. Ever.

    They all turn out to be the SAME FUCKING THING. This game shows me nothing that is unique about it what-so-ever. The name, the system, the style, everything is the same. I understand that like, it is being made by all the same dudes that made all the other Finals, but... fucking aye; can we TRY to be original?

    My first FF game was 4, and then 6 and then 7. 7 really drove it home for me. The materia system was where that shit got hot. 8 was boring, 9 was kind of going back to the "roots" and it was decent, although I felt that I got too powerful too quick. X was kind of like 8 with all the story-mode shit going on, but I enjoyed the battle system because by that time I was a stoner and it made the game easier. After that I lost interest in FF because it just didn't change. I was already getting tired of the series after 7, but the thing that really ended it for me was X-2. What the hell were they thinking?

    Now I am just ranting... but it's because this kind of shit is what makes me angry about the gaming arena. We need to innovate and produce quality games with different settings and systems. They got it right with Kingdom Hearts because the battle system was fresh and the setting was fucking amazing. They should do more shit like that. They have an awesome development team and they always just produce the same shit.

    Shit. Fuck. Shit. Etc.
