I still got beef with making the iris' gigantic to make them cuter or whatever, she's barely got eye whites now.  And I dunno, I kinda preferred the slightly sexier version (she had fuller lips and more foxy eyes), now she looks more like a 17 year old jpop idol.

Ok now I see they are a little bit bigger, but here's a slightly better comparison shot

I'd help if we could see the latter face's chin and neck.

Not like it matters that much, since either way, its uncanny valley.

I kind of agree with Aeolus here. The left one looks more realistic but gives that creepy doll like vibe. Hopefully it is not as bad outside of a still picture. Last thing we need is another Lym from Star Ocean

^That's kind of an extreme example with SQEX always putting an emphasis on their visuals and animation.

Nomura on Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts development philosophy -- Source: Nova Crystallis (via: RPG Site)

"It's no surprise that so much of the current Japanese output of Square Enix hinges of the creative talents of one particular individual. He's now at the helm of both Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III, the company's two biggest next-generation bets. In a sense, Tetsuya Nomura embodies all that Square Enix currently is and many are looking to him to produce results.

Our network affiliate, RPG Site, caught up with Nomura during Japan Expo his first outing to Europe since 2006 to talk Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts and how the director himself views game development philosophies."

And suddenly we see why they went and numbered this. They would've gotten to Scorpion King levels of offshoots if they hadn't.

Also lol Squeenix, for planning a direct sequel to a game you've been sitting on and have yet to actually release since 2006. Looks like they've got enough stuff on the cutting room floor to make a whole new game out of again.

Please.  I'm not surprised gaming in general is gonna go through a 'generation of sequels'.  The more detailed games get, the easier it probably is to just make sequels with similar assets.

But yeah... Hopefully this won't mean another 8 year delay. :P

@Aeolus: Is not like any of that is new to be actually funny anyway. (~_~;)

What's kinda funny though is how they are making XV part of 3 series at the same time:

XV is part of the main Final Fantasy series, use part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythos but despite that XV is part of the "VERSUS" universe.  In other words, XV is its own thing but it has to follow some of the traditions of FF while also using some of the mythos from FNC.

All that doesn't sound terribly complicated to follow given how the hardest part of any FF is putting all of the work done by the team in a cohesive manner together.

Does anyone actually give a crap about this stuff?  It's a serious question.  Like, I'm trying to picture some guy who's all "IS FINAL FANTASY XV PART OF FABULA NOVA CRYSTALLIS" while breathing heavily through a mouth full of partially chewed Fritos, Mountain Dew, and saliva.  What does this shit even mean.

I've noticed Squeenix really love the hell out of these tiny inconsequential news tidbits

I think the amount we've heard over 7 years can fit on a piece of paper.

@Parn: Dunno, I just find it sort of funny how SQEX make a team work on a game with some of those specifications that were build up over the years with every bad step they made.

What does this shit even mean.

FNC was originally a series of three FFs connected by one mythos. But then shit happened and each of those titles ended up having their own narrative and universe that are loosely connected together by this mythos.

And that's it. Is not complicated really, is just that there's so much people out there being busy hating on SQEX that they never put attention when they were presenting in a more official way FNC back in 2011.

My god, it all makes sense now.

FNC was originally a series of three FFs connected by one mythos. But then shit happened and each of those titles ended up having their own narrative and universe that are loosely connected together by this mythos.

Nah, I don't think shit even happened.  The games were never closely related.  They were never really intended to be in the same universe.  The mythos is the only thing they had in common from the start.

'Cause, you know, crystals.  No Final Fantasy game ever obsessed over crystals before...
