Let's be realistic here: At this point, we're not exactly holding our breath for Final Fantasy XV. That's not to say we aren't anticipating it at all it's just that, going on eight years since the game was officially announced, our lungs have only so much capacity.
One generational switch and a name change later, what started as part of a trio of Final Fantasy XIII games will now take the spotlight as the next major chapter of one of gaming's most beloved RPG franchises. That's a lot to live up to and more than a little cause for concern, given how long the game has been in development and how little we've actually seen of it.
Still, it's just impossible not to be excited. After years of FFXIII sequels and attempts to recapture the FFXI fanbase, we're hungry for something new and different. While some may not be down with his unique style, the flair director Tetsuya Nomura brings to any project means Final Fantasy XV certainly won't be dull. If anyone at Square Enix can bring some fresh gameplay ideas to the franchise, it's Nomura and in an era where Western RPGs have become such a dominant force in the genre, Final Fantasy needs to be anything but safe.
