Also, Nomura has officially stepped down as director and Tabata is taking over.
It definitely looks more like a real game in this trailer. There's less of the crazy flying around stuff we say before...which is probably for the best. It looked cool but realistically I never really understood how you were supposed to control it. This looks like an action RPG. Less revolutionary, sure, but also easier to see how it will actually play.
I find it funny that the combat in this looks like Dragon Age 2, a game people queefed out about endlessly, but yet for FF to depart from strategic combat it's hailed as streamlining and fun. In Dragon Age people decree that it's dumbing down and appealing to a COD mindset.
Not saying you said this, specifically, just quoting for the trailer.
