Final Fantasy XV will have “one climax, as a story, we plan to continue it further,” according to director Tetsuya Nomura.
Nomura briefly talks about the game’s story and its battle system, “Both are different from past Final Fantasy games, and this is a result of the game having started out as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, as translated by Siliconera.
That said, while the game has been rebranded to “Final Fantasy XV,” the idea behind having a different story and and action-based battle system has not.”
“I had to confirm that this would be okay during talks of the game being rebranded as the next numbered Final Fantasy XV. After being told that it wouldn’t be a problem, things went ahead as planned, he added.
Square Enix previously hinted that FFXV may have sequels that continue the story, Nomura confirmed that the game will be continued as sequels.”
He further added, “In the trailer, there was a line that read, ‘A World of the Versus Epic,’ which suggests that it will be part of an epic. While Final Fantasy XV will have one climax, as a story, we plan to continue it further.”
“It would make it easier for him and the rest of the team to develop freely without having to worry about the story and contents fitting into just one game,” he said.
Square Enix will produce a number of sequels to Final Fantasy XV and we might see publisher’s plans for episodic releases sooner than anticipated.
“As for as how it will be released, we’ll announce that later on; however, having you wait a long while for a next title isn’t something we would desire.
We’ve been exploring online compatibilities ever since the shift towards the next-generation hardware was decided,” he added.
And Nomura apologized to fans for the long wait:
“I deeply apologize for having you wait for so long. I hope that our latest announcement has been able to meet all of your expectations.
From this point on, the quality will only be getting better. We plan on revealing more information at future large events such as the Tokyo Game Show, so keep a close eye on the upcoming evolution of Final Fantasy XV.
There are many of you who feel that Japanese developers have fallen behind those from the West in the current generation. I believe that this title will show you otherwise for the next generation.”
Previously, FFXV characters detailed.
Final Fantasy XV will release sometime in March 2014 for Xbox One and PS4.
