We’ve got three new trailers from Square-Enix all for Final Fantasy games coming out of the Tokyo Game Show!
First up we’ve got a new trailer for the upcoming HD remasters for Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X2.
Both are looking pretty good although I have always felt Final Fantasy X was were the series started going off the rails. Not to say there’s anything wrong with it, it’s a solid game but the cracks were forming in the foundation. Next up, we have a new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.
If Final Fantasy X was the cracks, I really felt as though Final Fantasy XIII was when the roof came crashing down. Which is why it’s so weird that the more I see of Lighting Returns the better it looks. I wish I could I explain it, just something about it makes me think they fixed all the problems found in XIII. And that brings us to the heavy, a new trailer for Final Fantasy XV!
While there is only a little bit of new footage with the rest recycled it should be remembered we all went years without even a few seconds of anything concerning this game. So thumbs up to Square-Enix for at least throwing us a bone.
Final Fantasy X-2 is the last Final Fantasy game I enjoyed. Granted, I have a healthy appreciation for kitsch. One of my favorite not-so-guilty pleasure movies is Charlie’s Angels (Lucy Liu, Drew, Cameron D…) and FFX-2 combined two of my favorite things at that time period: JRPGs and American throwback kitsch. I know all the words to a couple of the pop songs in X-2. Thinking of that game makes me warm and happy on the inside.
I won’t be buying this remaster though. I still own my PS2 copies and don’t need to pay Squeenix for a slight graphics upgrade.
No comment yet on FFXV. I like umbrellas, so it has that going for it, I guess.
Kitsch is always fun. Yeah that’s kind of the double edge sword of things like this. It’s a cool idea and I love that people who missed these games the first time but I’ve still my PS2 as well, hell I still had a working gameboy color until a few months ago. There’s always something comforting about the old favorites.
FFX was probably the last FF game I enjoyed. But good lord, that English voice acting makes me lose the will to live.
Hahaha oh yes… That was back when they didn’t really care who did the English acting. They took the time translate it and that was basically it.
