    I would laugh if the answer seemed totally obvious like something along those lines, and then was something completely different.

    George Lucas let me down when Senator Palpatine did in fact turn out to be Emperor Palpatine. It was too obvious, and I thought he was gonna throw some weird twist at us.

    Tri-ace isn't known for plots with well done twists, are they? I heard nothing but bitching about Star Ocean: Till the End of Time's plot twist.

    I like how all that's known is the title, a little blurb for the premise, and the developer... and people are already breaking out the pitchforks and arguing over how much it sucks.

    Probably because it's a horrendous title that basically personifies every cliche people have come to expect from the company behind it.

    Unless they make a Radiata Stories 2.

    You know, it would have been more exciting for me if they just expanded on the Valkyrie Profile series.

    They had something going on there, then they went to possibly screw things up with a new IP.

    But you know what, I'm just going to hold back on my criticism, there have been promising games gone bad, and well, bad games that became fantastic.

    This game was announced a long long time ago, possibly even before Valkyrie Profile 2 was released.

    And I, for one, enjoyed Star Ocean 3.

    Well, the developers chose to have an uphill battle for respect when they announced that the title of the game is gibberish.

    Perhaps it's an early translation, and the Japanese title either makes sense or at least sounds good. But the time for people to point out that the English title neither sounds good nor is coherant is now. If the American localizer of this game were to happen on a thread like this, what they should get out of it is, "Unless we know for a fact this game is going to be so revolutionary that it will put words in the dictionary and change common perception about grammar, we should probably give it a different name."

    I'm well aware that, in many cases, foreign titles don't mean a lot when translated, but a good localizer knows when to force it and when to switch it out.

    Personally, I think they should have kept Resident Evil as "Biohazard" as it is in Japan, but I'm sure there were reasons that made sense at the time.

    If you'd asked me, before I played Nocturne, about "Persona," I'd think you were talking about a 1966 Ingmar Bergman film about a quiet power struggle for identity between two women in Sweden.

    Anyway, the game could be wonderful, but we have no idea. As I said, though, those of us who think that the title is even more ludicrous than normal for JRPGs (Final Fantasy Part Twelve? Are you shitting me? The games usually don't even have anything to do with eachother, so why keep the title? Oh, right, brand recognition).

    In closing, we're trying to do them a favor by pointing this out. Really.

    They should have a single achievement that there's no information about and that you actually can't ever get. Then the title would be brilliant.

    Final Fantasy always sounded dumb to me, except for in that FFVII commercial where the announcer makes it sound fucking epic.

    "They said it couldn't be done in a major motion picture.

    They...were right!

    Final. Fantasy. SEVEN.

    If I'm thinking of the right game (saw it in Famitsu), 'Infinite Undiscovery' is the game's name. As in, it's the English words, spelled and pronounced the Japanese way. They love to do that, and they usually don't care too much what the words actually mean. See: my own company's last major Japanese release, 'Soul Cradle'.

    Meh, I'll wait and see. From the comments here it looks like most people don't want a JRPG, as evedant from the rise and fall of Blue Dragon, Eternal Sonatra and such.

    Whatever the game will be, it will be a SE game, so I will get it. I hope that the "exclusive" part is dropped so I don't have to buy a third system.

    It isn't being developed by SE and isn't even using one of Square's old IP. SE is just publishing it.

    If anything, I love JRPGs.

    Could never wrap my head around the likes of Oblivion or Neverwinter Nights. But if anything, western RPGs do seem to have better names than JRPGs.

    According to unconfirmed sources, Sakaguchi had plans to retire after the completion of the project, so it was named Final Fantasy.[citation needed]

    I have hear at least two versions. The first is that the whole company was going bankrupt and the second was that the designer was just planning to retire.

    If its anything I've learnt about the game industry, its that companies don't like earning money, especially when the opportunities are blatantly obvious.
