    New picture from a magazine for FFXII.

    The rumors I heard a while ago suggest it will be more medieval themed, and the picture seems to suggest a mix of FF6 with FFTactics, which would be amazing in 3-D like FFX.

    These guys just don't know the meaning of the word "final", do they?

    Ok, as long as this thread is here, I'm gonna ask a FF question that I can't quite figure out...
    Are all the Nintendo / Super Nintendo (or all Pre-PS1) FF's available on PS1 now? I've played every single FF up 'till that goofy looney-tunes one (not thread farting here, just giving my experience) and I wanna play those classics on my PS2 but I'm not sure how much this final fantasy anthology incorporates....
    Anyone wanna give me a rundown of what is on what anthology?
    Thanks,
    JQ

    Final Fantasy Anthology for the PS1 basically includes Final Fantasy V(never released in the U.S) and Final Final Fantasy VI (Released as Final Fantasy III in the US). Both were SNES titles. Final Fantasy V is noteworthy for instroducing the job system which is highly regarded as one of the most in-depth character developement systems ever featured in an FF game. VI is a complete classic that IMHO must be played and owned ASAP! (its by far my favorite FF game and I'd say along with VII was the last FF game that I enjoyed.)
    Final Fantasy Chronicles for the PS1 includes Final Fantasy IV (released as Final Fantasy II in the US for the SNES). This new version features a heavily corrected translation if I remember correctly and is a good improvement over the initial release. As a bonus with chronicles you also get Chrono Trigger. (Speaks for itself[​IMG]).
    So with those 2 you would have FF IV, V, VI. Along with the PS1 releases VII, VIII, IX and the PS2 release of X. FF 1 and 2 were original NES releases and Square Enix may be releasing a compilation of those 2 games in the US for the PS1 soon (One has already been released or is due for release in Japan with some nicely redone graphics and new CG sequences). FF 3 I suppose was simply the US release of VI. Hope that helps!

    Romier,
    Yep, that definitely helps. So I need to grab FF Chronicles and FF Anthology. Sounds good.

    What's the latest on FFXI? Is it looking better or worse for a U.S. release?

    FF III (Japanese VI) on the Gameboy Advance would still be the coolest release possible, IMO.

    Square had interest in putting FF1-3 (Japanese releases) on the GBA a while ago.

    Unless they changed goals, their interest was in 4-6 (Japanese). The earlier titles were already ported to Wonderswan.

    I'd still like X-2 though. [​IMG]
    I've come to the conclusion that Final Fantasy VI is still tops for gameplay innovation, story, and old-school sensibilities.
    Oh well, I'll probably be an "old" man by the time FFXII gets released.

    FFXII will be around sooner than you think. Remember, PSX saw VII, VIII, and IX.
