During Tokyo Game Show this year, director Hajime Tabata gave the first live demonstration of Final Fantasy XV’s gameplay. The demo, streamed over Nico Nico, was a response to critics who said the footage in the trailer released three days ago consisted of prerendered cinematics.

Final Fantasy XV is in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Thoughts on Nomura leaving Final Fantasy XV to work on Kingdom Hearts III & "other projects" ?

Asked by thegrapetyphlosionranger

"u take 2 long, here go do something else ‘cause this guy actually got his shit together"

But really, I don’t think it’s necessarily bad. Nomura handled all the hard tasks (I’d at least imagine they were hard because it only took eight years for everyone to finally say “we have a demo actually worth letting people play”); all Tabata has to do is round it all up. I know I say that like it’s nothing, but that’s really what’s going on at this point.

If anything, it’s sending the message (to me at least) that Square Enix acknowledges that both FFXV and KHIII have and are taking way too long, and they’re trying to fix it by getting them out as soon as possible. While Tabata gets FFXV through its last few hurdles, it gives Nomura that much more time to focus on getting KHIII up to speed.

Honestly, Square Enix is one the companies to watch this console generation. Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts are the two franchises that can actually make people talk because both their next installments are so hotly anticipated, and they spent much of the last console generation promising so much and (to some people) delivering so little.

Friend: If Noctis' friends were real friends, they'd be waking him up in the car like, "Wake up, dumbass"
Me: Or they'd be us, and they'd all scream really loudly at once

At Tokyo Game Show this year, Square Enix announced that Tetsuya Nomura is no longer serving as director for Final Fantasy XV.

“In reviewing our development structure, we have decided to assign Hajime Tabata as the new director for Final Fantasy XV,” Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda said in a statement.

Nomura has been involved with the project since its announcement at E3 2006 as Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Presumably, his removal from the project is so he can dedicate more time to developing Kingdom Hearts III, Square Enix’s other major project.

Taking over his place is Hajime Tabata, who was announced as Nomura’s co-director at E3 2013. His past work with the Final Fantasy series is as director for Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy Type-0.

“Currently, Tabata and the entire development team are working, whole-heartedly, towards completing the production of Final Fantasy XV and ensuring the delivery of the highest quality Final Fantasy title to date,” Matsuda added.

Square Enix is releasing a demo for FFXV, titled Episode Duscae. It will come bundled with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, which will release on March 17, 2015 in North America; March 19, 2015 in Japan; and March 20, 2015 in Europe for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

We invite every one of our fans to view the fruits of our labor through Final Fantasy XV’s demo, and promise to present a game that further surpasses expectations when the finished product is released.”

In what is likely a leak of information that was supposed to be announced at Tokyo Game Show in the upcoming days, GameInformer reported that Square Enix will be releasing Final Fantasy Type-0 HD in North America on March 17, 2015; in Japan on March 19, 2015; and in Europe on March 20, 2015. The game is a high definition remaster of Final Fantasy Type-0, which originally came out in Japan for PlayStation Portable in 2011.

Type-0 HD will also come bundled with a demo for Final Fantasy XV, titled Episode Duscae. It focuses on an early portion of the game, and some gameplay elements have been altered from what will be the final version for demo purposes.

No word of a release window for Final Fantasy XV has been given.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and Final Fantasy XV will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
