Square Enix Trailer Re-imagines FF XIV as a Fighting Game!

/ 3 years ago


I haven’t played as a Final Fantasy character in a fighting game since the PlayStation 1 classic Ergheiz and for those of you too young to recall that era of gaming, the game was bloody awesome and a delightful retreat back to some of the things that made Final Fantasy VII so great. Now it seems Square Enix want to torment us with a flight of fancy that is likely to never become a playable game!

To demonstrate the power of their game engine which is being used for Final Fantasy XIV, the developer has created a very special trailer, which reimagines the open-world MMO as a fighting game, that bears quite a lot of similarity to games like Soul Calibur and Street Fighter.

What is frustrating, is that this fighting mode is not planned to be integrated into the game, nor is it intended to be released as a game, which is absolute torture for us gamers who would quite happily pay good money for something like this. Who knows, perhaps a few well-timed petitions and some forum outrage will give Square Enix the kick they need to bring a game like this into reality so that we can all enjoy it.
