First Final Fantasy XIII Review (Famitsu)

December 08, 2009

The first review for Final Fantasy XIII has been leaked. Famitsu has given the game a 39/40 (10 / 10 / 9 / 10).

For comparison's sake, here are some of Famitsu's reviews for previous Final Fantasy Titles.

Final Fantasy I - 35
Final Fantasy II - 35
Final Fantasy III - 36
Final Fantasy Ⅳ - 36
Final Fantasy V - 34
Final Fantasy VI - 37
Final Fantasy VII - 38
Final Fantasy VIII - 37
Final Fantasy IX - 38
Final Fantasy X - 39
Final Fantasy XI - 38
Final Fantasy XII- 40
Final Fantasy XIII - 39

The general trend seems to be increasing, though this could be related to different judges and their expectations changing over the years. For example, IGN has only ever given out 3 perfect 10/10 scores before, two of which come from this current generation(MGS4 and GTA IV), the only other game was LOZ: OoT, which was two generations ago. That is all relative though.

Final Fantasy XIII Chinese Famitsu Scans

December 06, 2009

Some Chinese Famitsu Scans have been uploaded, and their primary focus for this issue is Vanille's new summon, Hecatonchires. Here is a quote from a Q&A with Motomu Toriyama regarding the summon.

Q. What is the design and concept for Hecatonchires?

A: The summon’s concept is a “Shooting Blaster.” Because it can shoot and strike
from long distances in Driving Mode, the enemies’ position influences the
effectiveness of attacks, and it can shoot many times at once.

Q. The fact that it turns into something like Magitek Armor (from Final Fantasy
6) is a surprise.

A. As a matter of fact, we weren’t trying to make it look like Magitek Armor
in the beginning. We wanted a bipedal vehicle included, a design we called
a “Power Suit Tank,” but in the end, the result really does look like Magitek
Armor. (laughs)

Final Fantasy XIII Will Out Sell Final Fantasy VII

November 17, 2009

According to Yoichi Wada, Final Fantasy XIII will outsell the most successfull game in the franchise, Final Fantasy VII. Final Fantasy VII went on to sell 10 million copies so this is a pretty bold statement. However this prediction is most likely to come true. The first Final Fantasy on each console always tends to sell better than the second/third ones, and considering Final Fantasy XIII will be on both the PS3 and Xbox 360(In NA and EU), it shouldn't be a problem to exceed 10 million copies worldwide.
