"Final Fantasy Tactics S" announced by Square.

http://www.jp.square-enix.com/ffts/ - link to Square's website for the upcoming "game".

Apparently it's a 'social game', which is what the S stands for. Yay. On the front page of their website we have: viera, mogs, bangaa, nu mou, humes, gria and FFTA/FFTA2 themed monsters.

Based upon the models of the sprites and the monsters, I guess 'Final Fantasy Tactics S' will be set in "The Neverending Story" version of Ivalice.

I suppose wishing for a proper sequel to FFT/WotL is nothing but a pipe dream. Personally I would love for a FFT game centered around Ivalice during the Fifty Years' War - featuring Barbaneth and Cid as the 'counterparts' to Ramza and Delita, respectively - but alas...

Squaresoft seems determined to enter the casual game/app market: Chaos Rings, FF Airborne Brigade, and now this.. FF Tactics S. And probably more that I'm not aware of. This does not bode well, either way.

Where did you go wrong, Squaresoft? *sigh*

The S stands for...well y'know.

I do want an FFT-2...but seeing SE's current state, and the fact that Matsuno is no longer part of SE... maybe it should just stay as a fantasy.

If its one thing sqeenix does well, its not make proper good and decent sequels to some of their most beloved and greatest games. Instead they just wanna appeal to the cazuls and make their brand name games nothing more then a gimmick to grab a few bucks.

PS - I dislike Delibeans, dont ever compare him to CID.. EVER!!!

Oh joy.

They rather waste their time on that than the dreaded FFTA 3 that would still sell?

How...unsurprising.

Well! Looks like a change in leadership is doing absolutely nothing for the company.

If it's another lousy facebook game that makes me wait 12 hours to do what I want to do, they can bite my shiny buttpants. They will have irreparably damaged the FFT brand.

This isn't new. There were three casual oriented "Final Fantasy" games before Final Fantasy V came out. The only reason it seems like they are doing it more now is because most of the casual games they made are completely forgettable and you are only remembering the better ones.

If you don't like them, don't play them. Those games bring in a lot of profit for Square, which makes their shareholders happy, which makes them much more obliging with budgets for more major games. That's how the game industry works in Japan. Square is just one of the few companies where some of those cheesy casual games actually get localized outside Japan.

1) what 3 games are you referring to?
2) You kinda made the case for what wrong with this. The whole appease the shareholders thing has kind of been a source of many problems in this industry. They shouldn't have to make a sea of social games to get the ok on larger budget projects.

So they're taking an already-overused twisted joke of FFT and making a twisted joke of a game concept out of it?

Okay.
