Official Twitter for the game?

#1FaustWolfPosted 7/27/2010 3:38:49 AM
While browsing the forum at, I came across a post that referred to the following site as the game's "Official Twitter."

A.) Does it appear to be legit, and B.) anyone with the appropriate language skills see any new tidbits on there?

Obviously legit or Shinji "Stupid Question Stupid Answer" Hashimoto wouldn't be following it.

Not changing this sig until Square Enix reveals that codename FORTRESS is actually FINAL FANTASY XV.
You read it first on GameFAQs.

Ooh! Newest tweet seems to say we should expect an official site update soon. Maybe refers only to the Japanese page, but anyway, everyone keep an eye on these:

DaBubba, your post gets cut off for me -- something about the character encoding on your browser might be trying to put your translation all on one line without breaking automatically. All I see is:

...roughly, "By the way, a little while ago I found the planning documents for "Densetsu --" [Ogre Battle] and read through them again; there were

And then it cuts off there. Arggh, the suspense is killing me!

Sorry about that; I think the Japanese will force the lines to be too long if you don't manually change the encoding on your browser.

Let me try again:

On Yasumi Matsuno's Twitter, he says:

を発見したので み直したんですが、
当初の主人公は4人いたんです 。狂
戦士アッシュ、トリスタン王 、僧侶
アイーシャ、 術師サラディン った
のアッシュ用 ったんですよ、実は

...roughly, "By the way, a little while ago I found the planning documents for "Densetsu --" [Ogre Battle] and read through them again; there were four protagonists originally. The berserker Ash, Prince Tristan, Aisha the monk, and the mage Saladin. The graphics for the male warrior in Ogre Battle in fact came from Ashe in that [document]."

I've never played the original Ogre Battle; does that make sense to anyone?

Thanks DaBubba! I didn't even see this one on the Twitter account, so this is a real treat. Was it a newer entry, or one of the older ones?

The male "Lord" class always looked like a big brute in Ogre Battle, so envisioning him as a "berserker" at first makes sense. At least, I think that's what Matsuno is referring to when he says "male warrior."

Prince Tristan, Aisha, and Saladin (translated as "Saradin" IIRC) made it into the final version of Ogre Battle: MOTBQ as very important characters. What I'm not sure about is whether "Ash" eventually developed into the knight "Ashe," or if they're completely unrelated.

I'm so loving that Matsuno's going back through his notes on the series. It shows that he's interested either in continuing the series if LUCT sells well enough, or maybe even going back to MOTBQ and sprucing it up, maybe...
