Really, FF games arent paticulary what you call 'real japanese games'. Sure it has a few japanese nods bt thats t really. Its pretty weaboo with the fanservice and pink hair, ad with Tifa's cans and Yuna's korean singer look. I didnt mind, but i want a REAL ancient japanese samurai themed game for once. With magic and summons included.

Inb4 they had samurai-job.

Yeah, thats not enough for me.

I wonder how people will react on a samurai FF.

Don't know. Personally I don't find the theme very interesting, but I would be fine with it if it wouldn't be limited to realism. I'd still want Summons and magic and all that regardless of the setting.

What I would really hate is if they try to turn the style of the game into something more "Japanese", that is with underaged girls wearing next to nothing, every name ending with a stupid courtesy phrase, all women being based on looks alone and all chins being triangular for no conceivable reason.

That is the day I leave this series.

Pink Hair = Anime trope/anime stylization... I don't think you know what weaboo means.

Capcom has already done an ancient Japan series, it's called Sengoku Basara. And guess what? It's full of Anime tropes (Hell, they even made an anime about the games). Making something about ancient Japan does not automatically mean the disappearance of Anime tropes and does not make it "Real Japanese". So what you really want is for new writers who will be super serious about the subject matter.

I think that's the day 80% of us leave the series. No lolicon, shotacon, kawaii-desu stuff for me, please.

Being more serious, I heavily doubt they'd ever do that.

I know exactly what it is. I just used it exaggerted. FF didnt used to service to mindless i-think-i-know-everything about-japan-just-because i played FF for years-weaboos untill recent years.

Nah, i dont want all anime tropes to go away but FF7 and FF8 were the closest to being less anime than XIII. Heck even FF X wasnt that anime. Yes, apart from Tidus.

Point being, id fancy a ancient Japanese setting someday. Heck it can even be for a portable.

Lol...you are the only one who is offended.

Weeaboos are people who want absolutely everything Japanese, whether it makes sense or not. They are the people who want everything as subtitles only, and refuse to accept that any western influence could make something better.
