It's actually getting quite a lot of backlash from Japanese gamers on 2ch. Go read some via Google Translate. Most are saying that FFXV doesn't even look like FF or even a JRPG. They also state that SQEX have completely lost sight of what made the FF series popular to begin with and it's only a matter of time that the brand completely collapses.
It will be interesting to see the lifetime sales of FFXV in Japan. I highly doubt it will cross 2 million mark, especially seeing as FFXIII sold 1.9 million.
Final Fantasy XII is a masterpiece in both game design and story.
