Dear Square Enix,
This E3 was amazing, and it’s all because of you.
Final Fantasy Versus XIII, now Final Fantasy XV (good decision), was something that was expected to be shown but there was a lot of doubt regardless. Anyway, the trailer was outstanding, it revitalized people’s excitement for this game, which to be honest is something worthy of mention, considering all the years of nothingness.
Final Fantasy XV looks spectacularly well made, so fluid, detailed and engaging. The scene when Noctis chuckles — I chuckle as well — every time I watch it! It’s brilliant. I like how you’re presenting the bond of Noctis and his father, it does a good job of making the viewer care for the bond and for the characters.
One notable element of the latest trailer I would like to point out is Prompto’s “assist” in battle where he comes from behind Noctis’s shoulder to shoot an enemy. It looks so natural while cool at the same time!
All in all, the E3 2013 Final Fantasy XV trailer was very enjoyable. However…
I must emphasize the lack of release date/year. It’s not concerning per se, but considering the history and the circumstances it’s worrisome to think you couldn’t present an idea of when it’s going to be released. Of course there’s probably a legitimate reason behind that decision, but once the hype which this trailer produces drops, people will realize this is just a trailer with the game not in sight.
Following the Final Fantasy XV trailer, a massive surprise appeared; Kingdom Hearts III trailer! I was stunned. After so many years, you finally decided to confirm the third part. I actually think the KHIII trailer was much more surprising than FFXV’s.
This year’s E3 must have been the best one ever. To think it would be that much better if you announced Final Fantasy Type-0’s international release… I have to say I was disappointed a bit, but not too much as I’m waiting for this game for quite a while already. Please do something about it.
Thank you for a great experience.
