Yes that is the actual name of this game. This is actually the 9th game chronologically in the series:


Heres the trailer:

And here begins my rant:

Just like Ash from Pokemon, Sora does not age. It has been 14 years since the first game came out. Kingdom Hearts 3 still hasn't been finished either. I stopped playing this series after Kingdom Hearts 2. A good chunk of KH2 made no sense. I still remember thinking the game would explain characters and events at some point but never did. Thinking I must have missed something I jumped online and found out it actually was Kingdom Hearts 3 and it was a sequel to a game boy game and not a sequel to the playstation 2 game I loved. I'll play Kingdom Hearts again someday if they ever release a full set of every game on one platform in a complete collection. If Square Enix ever releases another game in a series of exclusive title on every single platform, I'll never buy another game series from them again. I'm sure KH is fun and people have followed the series with every title, but buying 7 different gaming systems to keep playing 1 series is ridiculous. SE tried to consolidate the systems needed to play this series by releasing remasters over the years, but even then you'd have had to wait roughly 10 years to play everything on the PS3.

I personally don't download games illegally and play them on emulators, but with a game series being initially released on 7 different gaming systems over a decade.. I really wonder how many people have done exactly that over the years.

If Square Enix is planning on doing this with Final Fantasy XV, they need to make those plans clear to their customers.

end rant.

And hence the reason why I'm glad, like DX, that I never got into this series (I couldn't get past the fact they were mising SE characters with Disney characters (hey I was young and opinionated when the first one came out). I heard it was a great game with a great story but I was too invested in other titles back then to take the plunge and buy it (or rent it, I did a lot of game renting back then)). A lot of my friends, who were fans of the KH series, actually ended up buying every system to play it. Emulation, while fun, requires a lot of set-up for anything past the SNES era (hell to play PS1 and PS2 games on you PC you actually need to get your hands on the bios for both systems, extremely illegal (even more so then pirating games) and they're hard to find without getting some virus downloading them (I only know this because I have emulated PS games before but stopped doing it as I can't play old school PS games without getting a serious headache)).

Considering how SE has already done this with the FF series (the sequel to IV, Crisis Core, Tactics Advance and Tactics Advance 2) I can forsee them taking this path with FFXV (if the game ends up being a multi-game release, they'd be fucking stupid if they pulled this. XIII and it's two sequels did not do as well as some people think they did and ended up loosing SE a lot of pull with their fans as well as money (the only reason XIII sold so well was because it was a numbered title and it was the first numbered title to come out in 3 years at the time)).

This is the reason why I'm only blowing money on FFXIV and the Star Ocean series, the only good FF around now-a-days and the only good series SE has been putting out in recent years (which reminds me I should really get around to beating II, III, and IV (Star Ocean that is)).

      That battle system is straight out of Chrono Trigger. An old school style RPG game on current gen consoles and not a handheld exclusive. Finally. Square Enix, please continue doing this.

      I played this demo a few weekends ago and I was not impressed at all. I've been looking forward to a new Final Fantasy game for years and this particular game has been in development for what.. 20 years I think? Its a game that was scrapped and revitalized and renamed numerous times and is finally getting released. All the previews of the game looked interesting. A freestyle fighting system, teleporting sword play, and a bunch of guys driving around in a car while seeing huge monsters roaming the wild. So I got the demo and what a disappointment. This is the kind of demo that makes me glad I didn't preorder this. Wtf. I booted it up and instead of all the cool stuff I saw in the trailers, my character is a little kid with a squeaky hammer weapon. It felt like I was playing Kingdom Hearts again. The camera was crappy and the graphics were unimpressive as if made for PS3. I have a bad feeling that this game is going to tank since Square Enix thought this demo must have been good since they released it to the public. It makes perfect sense that Square Enix's next Final Fantasy game will be a remake of FF7. They obviously have no idea what they are doing with making a new game at this point. I don't want some kiddy Kingdom Hearts crap. I want an epic RPG that will suck me into the world and make me feel for the characters and feel invested in the plot. Instead I got a demo that makes me want to not even look at any more footage of this game and completely forget about it even existing at this point. Maybe it'll be good, but I sure as hell am not going to buy this on launch day now. Its pretty messed up too. If not for this demo, I would have bought this on launch day guaranteed. This is the first time a demo has actually made me change my plans on buying a game.

      I've passed on buying bundles for a while now because with the backlog of games I have now, it seems almost pointless to buy any more games, even on sale. But I've always loved Square Enix RPGs such as Final Fantasy.. but this bundle is full of games from franchises I've never played. What do you guys think about this bundle? I might be interested in it depending on what games get added to it next Tuesday.
