Speaking with Famitsu recently, Nomura explained what, exactly, will make Final Fantasy XV feel like a true Final Fantasy title, despite the very obvious differences between it and the other games that hold a number.
“You fight with your action technique while thinking about the numeric values. These two types probably don’t co-exist in other action-type battles.” He goes on to say that if the numeric values disappeared, it wouldn’t feel like a Final Fantasy game.
Speaking of the story, he confirmed that the upcoming title will utilize the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythos, which gamers may recall appeared in both Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Type-0. The mythos will serve as the story’s foundation, but Nomura makes it clear that the game will be taking place in an original world.
Nomura stated that, “The story is simple: an enemy nation steals the crystal, and the protagonists must get it back. Amidst that, human relations intersect, expanding into a Final Fantasy-style tale.”
So, what are your thoughts on the reasons Nomura believes the upcoming game will feel like a true Final Fantasy?
