Square Enix will show a next-gen Final Fantasy at E3

Thursday, 21st February 2013 00:46 GMT By Phil Owen

Square Enix was another third-party publisher that made an appearance at the PlayStation Meeting to demonstrate development support for the PS4.

They showed a Luminous Engine tech demo, Agni’s Philosophy — which you can watch below if you haven’t seen it before — and then announced that they will reveal a next-gen Final Fantasy title at E3 this summer.

    That was seriously the low-point of the whole thing for me. Hashimoto’s weird banter and his slow, grueling way of basically unveiling a tease was terrible. Square Enix will probably unveil another tease at E3 “please look forward to TGS!”

    I’m obviously frustrated by SE. lol. Very excited by everything else in the presentation!

    I laughed at Squeenix repeating the demo of Agni’s Philosophy, then breathed a sigh of relief that Squeenix’s time on the stage ended without Toriyama taking the stage or an announcement of a really shitty spinoff or sequel to a once great IP that would be (or already had been) butchered.

    This was actually the first time I saw, and took real notice of, both Yoshihisa Hashimoto and Shinji Hashimoto. I’m not quite sure what to make of them yet, time will tell as I get more exposure to their mannerisms, the kind of comments they make, and the projects tied to them.

    A quick look at Shinji Hashimoto’s Wikipedia page and I see that his only black mark is sales and marketing producer on FFX-2; according to what the Wikipedia page lists, he was directly involved in most of the company’s best and most highly acclaimed games, and more importantly, he was NOT involved in 3rd Birthday or any of the FF13 games.

    Hopefully this is a sign of Squeenix actually heading in the right direction now after screwing themselves over so much by putting Toriyama on a pedestal and giving him permission to ruin several great already existing IPs.

    I wish I could say that a very promising FF game without Toriyama involved would get me to buy Squeenix products again, but unfortunately, I’m very committed to waiting until Squeenix makes a proper Aya Brea game that treats her right and makes 3rd Birthday noncanon. 3rd Birthday was the embodiment of everything I loathe in video games, so until it’s rectified, I’m not comfortable giving the company money that could easily go to making more games like it.

    @1 Both. I said it as early as two years ago; they’ll eventually relabel versus 13 as FFXV for PS4.
