I remember back in the time when Square announced FFIX, X, and XI, they have also mentioned that Final Fantasy XII will "return to the tradition", i.e. with a less "serious", colorful and more relaxed theme like FFIX, and the characters will be super deformed like in Final Fantasy IX. So FFXII can't be a sequel to FFX because it will have a totally different style.

Actually, I think it just might be the opposite. The gameplay might be some of the best ever in a console RPG. The battle director of FFT is working on it so...

I think he means sad as in story. Since it's from the director of FFT and Vagrant story <I think that was director>, and both games ended on a sad note. Which is good in my book. A nasty story that rocks the main character all through the game with sadness and despair. Gonna rock!

I did mean story, sorry about the confusion, anyway

I also enjoy a game where the main character doesnt have the best luck and everything handed to him/her on a plate, but I do like seeing the main character be atleast somewhat happy in the end.

I did remember Square has mentioned about bringing the Final Fantasy series "back to its root" for every 2 - 3 installments, because there are a lot of FF fans hoping to see the game to return to its original form. So we probably will see another FF game return to the "big head / small body" form like in FF9. Even if it is not FFXII, it will be FFXIII or FFXIV.

i dont mind sqaure going back to its root. but they should atleast design the character better..the design in ffix wasnt eye catching enought..the characters looks kinda weird in a way especially that guy that eats frogs..

At least the character designs are better then the ones in Kingdom Hearts. They are trashy.

Well, I guess we have our answer on wether we will get FFX:2, what with square announcing they will make FF spinoff series based on certain characters.

I guess FFX: Another Story was a prologue after all!

I heard the Final Fantasy spin-offs are to be started from FF12, so don't get too excited about FFX:2, it may just not even exist.

As far as I know, Square only mentioned they would make spinoffs of popular characters from their game. They didnt really implicitly say Final Fantasy. For all we know, there might be a spinoff game from Vagrant Story featuring Ashley Riot.

People do say FFX:2 might be msot probable considering FFX: Another Story and the fact that at the end of it Yuna and Rikku decide to go off on their own to discover whats happened to Tidus.

Wanna bet the game takes palce in some alternate dimension and features those three characters? Plus a new cast?

Oh and Alucard: KH doesnt look trashy. If anything, it is VERY faithful to Dusney character designs. The scene near the beginning with Donald running though the castle is EXACTLY like the animated Donald would be. So if anything, the design is simply very faithful to disney, which I think was the whole point of the game.

Now, wether in your opinion Disney Designs are trashy or not, thats a different subject. I for one as a child loved like any other the funny Donald and goofy animation shorts, so to me this game evokes a certain sense of nostalgia.

If it just weren't for Minnie-mouse who has the head the size of a watermelon...
