Square Enix: “The Future of Final Fantasy” Event

June 5th, 2013 by Tony Garsow

pbe

The press conferences and booth events aren’t the only thing Square Enix has its eyes on for this year’s E3. The company has sent out invites for a special “The Future of Final Fantasy” event to be held on June 11th @ 9:00am. Final Fantasy brand manager and 1st Production Department representative Shinji Hashimoto, who wants you to please be excited, will be in attendance to detail what announcements may be made as E3 transpires.

Previously, Mr. Hashimoto announced that a new Final Fantasy game will be revealed at E3 — and now that time is upon us! We’ll be bringing you coverage of E3 here on Final Fantasy Network as the week transpires.

What do you think the future of Final Fantasy will look like? Leave us a comment below!

    A new, fresh, luring fantasy would be nice for a change.
    I wouldn’t think it pedantic to assume most people just want to be swayed by that one game that sinks in with each new stroke.
    I don’t share what seems to be the default manner of speech, at least on the internet, when it comes to new, upcoming videogames: “We want this! We want that!”. No, “we” just want to be surprised, enchanted even. When something like more than half of a company’s exposure content is either old polished material or backlashing titles/names, it’s not easy to expect much of a thing. Then again, that itself might make an unexpected game appear diamond-shining. Anything goes I guess.

  • Radox

    With an event with that name, anything other than FFXV (even Versus) will be underwhelming. I’m interested to see what lessons they’ve learnt over the last 7 years and what story they want to tell. I’m hoping to be blown away. What the series needs right now is a new offline roman numeral. A breath of fresh air, so to speak.

    Well, with the release of the PS4 and the announcement of a new FF title for it, it only makes sense that this would be Versus. If they want to release a new game, they would have to make Versus first. Wouldn’t it be awesome if they announced both Versus and XV together? (not that that could ever happen but a man can dream…)

  • TheBadass

    Please, I hope we see more than just Versus XIII. I want Agni’s Philosophy to become a full game. :-)

    9am what timezone? 😮

  • h00aoj

    I can’t wait!!!!

    It’s so exciting being a FF fan at the moment. FFXIV:ARR, FFXIII LR, HD remastered FFX, Versus plus new titles ???

    Please SE – don’t make me disappointed – we have been let down for the last couple of years…..

  • AnimaMagna

    I’m excited too, and the real challenge is balancing my own pressing work with my private fascination for this amazing series.

    Personal predictions (for titles unconfirmed):
    Final Fantasy Versus/XV unveiled, 2014 release window revealed.
    Bravely Default (UK/US version) unveiled and given a demo.
    Final Fantasy XV/XVI is unveiled for the PS4.
    Dropping hints about possible Type-0/Agito localization
    A promise for future Final Fantasy announcements at TGS, maybe including a new game in the Fabula Nova Crystallis series.

  • Tony Garsow

    @masterlobo Pacific US.

  • Liz

    As long as the Final Fantasy game give us a great story, gameplay and storytelling, I’ll be very much pleased! 😀

  • Wow!!! i’m so excited

  • anony

    My predictions most of the same as animaMagna, but this might bit off shinji might discuss or show the histroy of final fantasy to unveil a new game, kinda like skyward sword showing from 3d zeldas from oot to tp eventually revealing ss. But this might be possible since ending for ff25th anniversary.

    I’m excited, it after the main nintendo direct on tuesday but it is same time pokemon direct or one of those follow up nintendo direct. I was hoping for different time.

  • alexsam

    @AnimaMagna I really don’t think they’ll announce Versus, XV and XVI at E3. There’s a limit to optimism. And I also don’t think we’ll be getting any news on Agito/Type-0’s localization either. That may happen next year though.

  • AnimaMagna

    @alexsam
    The title’s are meant to be interchangeable for reader comfort (having all these titles keeps people happy, leaves the possibilities open). That’s what the (/) dash is for. I would really be over the top if I thought they would announce two mainline FFs at the same event.

  • Tony Rodrigues

    Acredito que apresentarão um novo “rumo” para a franquia, talvez até uma mudança de gênero para a série principal, isso levando em consideração a queda pela procura de JRPGs, e a ascensão de gêneros diferenciados.
    Em 1997 o mundo inteiro jogava principalmente jogos de luta, então veio FF7 e tomou conta do mercado, se a squareenix realmente quer subir novamente ao topo, o comentário de Nomura “me sinto como se estivesse refazendo FF7″, sobre versus XIII, tem que ser confirmado e aceito pelos fãns, então, provavelmente, teremos muito menos jogadores de Jogos FPS, futebol e de luta.
    Ps: Estou confiante, acredito no trabalho deles.

  • Lilay

    @Tony Rodrigues

    “I feel like I’m remaking FFVII.”
    Did Nomura really state this in regards to Versus XIII? I remember not one bit of anyone ever drawing that similarity in the actual company. Can you confirm the information as part of an article in some magazine or whatnot?
    Feel free to reply in Portuguese.

    @anony: this sucks to have two great stream at the same time, one with epic reveal ff and the other with aswesome pokemon with presumabely new type. I suggest to pick one of live stream for one rpg, and the other thru using highlights or watch it later. I know pokemon direct will be posted bty nintendo so you can watch it anytime.

    I’m excited for ff series, bt frustated on two stream at the same time. Not sure which one to watch
