Final Fantasy XV Could Turn Out to be an Action RPG

Posted By | On 16th, Nov. 2011

According to Yoshinori Kitase, Final Fantasy XV (that’s right 15) could ditch the turn-based battle system. Now this isn’t a big news, since games after FFX-2 all have some sort of active battle system. When you look at Final Fantasy XIII, it’s a total departure from the old school style of gameplay.

Square Enix is always experimenting with each Final Fantasy game, as you all know but it is really interesting to see how they carry the franchise now.

Kitase mentioned this in an interview with EDGE.

“I think the nature of the franchise is to present something new each time. In the global market we see many players moving away from games that used turn-based systems toward what you might term an action-RPG.

“That’s a trend, and you ignore things like that at your peril,” he said.

We agree with him, this is definitely something we need to consider.

He also mentioned that, “FFXIII and FFXIII-2’s battle systems have those elements of speed and action that are the key words for us, though that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re going to stick to the same route in our next game.

“That’s something only time can tell.”
