    "Far in development", and "a very high priority within the company".
    I like hearing that.

    I kinda had a feeling that once Lightning Returns was finished and released, that we'd start to hear a little bit more about XV.
    I'm really glad that Square-Enix has made this game into one of it's major focuses,
    which now that's it's been made into a mainline game in the series, rather than a spin-off like it originally was, I guess I shouldn't be too surprised about that.

    I'm glad that now, we're gonna be able to hear more about it, or at least I hope so.
    I hope I'm not rambling here.

    So maybe only a decade after its initial announcement if we're lucky?

    Well now that XIII proper is over, it might be a little more believable when they say things like this.

    If this game comes out before 2017 I'll be positively shocked. I'm not buying into anymore trailers I wont get excited for this game until I get my hands on a playable demo.

    Remember, Final Fantasy XV has already been in development for years. I can believe we could well see this in 2015.

    Ditto here. Likely early 2015. I`m also fairly certain that most of the team has transferred over to KH3 at this point, and it's at the "finishing touches / debug " stage now.

    They've probably actually created and scrapped at least three nearly full versions by now.

    Like last year's E3, Square Enix will be showing Final Fantasy XV in some form or another.

    With there not being anything about a release date or year at the end of the trailer, I think we can pretty much guarantee this game's not coming out in 2015. As expected. Maaaaaybe 2016 but even then I'll be surprised.

    Yeah. Well, good thing that is we get to play a portion of the game with the purchase of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.

    SO a "Road trip through a fantasy world". Pretty cool and fresh, I`d say it's exactly what FF needs.

    Yeah, seems we get a return to the old FF roots of open world exploration, mixed with real-time combat. Which is cool.

    Yeah, well don't forget. This wasn't originally intended to be a traditional Final Fantasy game. It was previously called "Final Fantasy Versus XIII"...

    Yeah that's true. And this was to be completed as that and to be on PS3/360.

    Am I the only one that thinks the main characters look absolutely ridiculous? They look like they are cosplaying a fading-in-popularity bi-shonen J-Pop boyband 24/7 (and I have a few forum rule-breaking things to say about them too). But the car...the car is what completely sold the stupidity of how those four guys looked (or was one of them a girl? Maybe all of them were girls?).

    I am interested in the game because of how the gameplay looked. It looks like how Dragon Dogma 2 could be, and I can't rely on Capcom to make that game. So thanks Square Enix.

    But the way they are dressed...their demeanor...the freaking car...I...just why? Does that actually appeal to some people? Are they trying to increase the female players in gaming?

    Can any of you take whatever story FFXV throws at you seriously when the characters look like THAT?

    I take is no less seriously than I do any of the other games. I'd say the fashion is a pretty good mix of what one might see in a Japanese fashion magazine while also being suitable for combat within the world of the story. The main character's hair is pretty standard idol fair, too. The men all look identifiably male, too.

    If we're going to call this stupid we might as well call the rest of the franchise stupid. A guy with a gun on his arm? Stupid. A guy with a big-ass sword and spikey blond hair? Stupid. Using cute animals for support functions or to save? Stupid.

    Yea but that's fun stupid ;)

    I don't think these guys look dumb, a bit generic. The car is odd though, looks a bit product placement-y but it's just a car. That one monster they drive by was cool shot of how huge it was.
