March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

Is it just me or does this story sound kind of familiar?

It does sounds familiar. But this doesn't mean it will be the same. There are so few details now that we shouldn't try to pass judgment yet. It all depends on what direction Square takes with it. There are many stories that start the same, that end up being totally different.

Do you mean familiar like FFVII familiar? As in Lightning/Mr. 33cm are essentially AVALANCHE?
pixel
Nope, not at all.

You're right. It's going to start like FFVII and end like FFVIII.

But time flows like a river, and history repeats. And then Wada will laugh all the way to the bank.

OMG THAT SOUNDS AWESOME!!!!!!!1

But Final Fantasy XII set a precedent in RPGs -- You can have a rehashed, regurgitated, mediocre storyline as long as the gameplay makes up for it.

As long as no one turns out to be a ghost with a father complex, we cool. The whole Shiva tuning into a motorcycle does sound incredibly stupid and the characters that I've seen so far do look fairly uninspired, but maybe the fighting system will redeem it some how.

If it's got random encounters, then you lose FFXIII.

At least Ifrit doesn't turn into a Kyocera© cell phone.

You don't know that. And that clown faced dog summon made me want to vomit in anger. When did FF get so girly? "Finish this mission to get the 'Prada Purse of Destruction', so that you may carry your Carbuncle summon around with you!" -so says black mage Paris Hilton!
