This was shown at Sony's Press Conference. Looks pretty awesome. It reminds me of Star Wars for some reason though.

I don't know anything about this game, but I just saw the video, and I saw 2 characters that looked just like Yuna and Riku. Hm...

There is no random battle in this game, they replaced it with the system used in final fantasy online, uppgraded ofcourse.

Meaning enemies can actully SMELL you and locate you, each with a certain level of AI, so beware.

I want this game BADLY !!!

Lets hope it lives up.

I hope it -is- just a really pretty movie with some fighting in it. That would be more entertaining.

I prefered the one in final fantasy 10 to be honest, the map only popped up to tell you were you had walked too, while you actully went around the world you were in.

A full 3d world seems more likely, a form of teleportation like the warp spell from the earilier games, or more probable is the use of an airship to auto go somwere.

All in all the game is said to be MASSIVE, ive heard rumors of more then one cd for it, and considering how mutch you can slap into a ps2 cd, that would be pretty damn awsome.

AT any rate, the game is worth it mostly for the artwork and music alone, sure story is really importent , and by far my favorit part of any rpg game, the detail they get in this game, wich is sure to push the ps2 to its outer limit, will be quite enjoyable to see.

Is Amano doing the character art for this game aswell ? Or did he only make the title ? Amano has done all the title pictures so i doubt that will change unless he dies or something, but has he done character art this time ?

The artwork is great and all, and im sure it'll have fan fav gameplay and such (which is fine) but damn the main male character's turn more and more feminine with each incarnation...

Yeah some of the designs do seem to take a bit from star wars I think.

I have to agree, that the main characters either get younger and younger, or more bishou for each game.

But considering that most fantasy based games and such has always had " the young hero approach "

Most of the characters are 25 to 15 in the final fantasy series.

It would be pretty cool if a woman was an actual main charcter for once, yuna doesnt count becouse the game sucked and terra doesnt either becouse final fantasy 6 didnt have a main character.
Basically they should do a good job on it.

Hell give us a 36 to 40 year old main character to lead the game, Conan manages it in the fantasy comics why not in final fantasy ?

The character clothing and such look pretty cool in my opinion, and final fantasy has always had that little sci fi touch, even in the first game you had to go into space.

The male characters in Final Fantasy Six were more feminine than this... They just look more... J-Pop now (thanks a lot David Bowie).

LoL snowfox

Yeah I enjoy young hero's and all dont get me wrong (hey link is the man) but I personally find it hard to beleive you can have these battle hardened individuals at the ripe old age of 23....its kind of a cliche in jrpg's but hey its just a part of the charm I suppose.

As far as real downright fantasy hero's go, conan does indeed own...no magic, no awesome planet shattering spells, no gay summons, just flesh and steel and all out ass kicking!!

Was it just me or does it just sound corny? "final fantasy twwwwelve"
Is this anything to do with tactics? Same place right? ...and was any of that actual gameplay?
Also whenit was going through the characters all Icould think of was Final Fatasy 9 for some reason.

It's the same Ivalice from the Final Fantasy Tactics games but the plot isn't related to the others.

I wasn't really impressed either though. I think its going to suck, and Vaan still looks like a girl.
