Final Fantasy Series (1987-?)“After switching over to the Famicom, there was a time when I wasn’t happy with anything I was creating. I thought of retiring from the game industry and I created Final Fantasy as my final project. That’s why the title includes the word ‘final’ but for me, the title ‘Final Fantasy’ reflects my emotional state at the time and the feeling that time had stopped. They say that technologically, it’s good to keep going, and each time, we give it our all and expend our skills and energy until we can go no further; this is what I consider to be the “final fantasy”.”
stella will “stand out” in some way from the other female characters in the series;
(this is a 720P stream of what was shown, it is also longer than the other 6min one)
So here’s some info about what was talked about in the livestream (I got this from NeoGAF tbh, you should go there if you want more info, also next week, there should be some info about the game with Famitsu interviewing Tabata.) GET HYPE
-Duscae is a toponym, there’s an area in the game world.
-Demo length is about 1 hour, but players might play for about 3 hours.
-There’s gonna be a bit of overworld and a dungeon.
-Car’s in! Chocobos might also be.
-No boss battles, because they’re a big deal in the game.
-Ignis was driving in the trailer but you can do it yourself, or you can leave it on auto, so Noctis’ friends will drive it for you.
-See that Adamantoise? You can fight him.
But it will take a long while.
-They’re Trying to make distribution date of the demo to be the same as Type 0 HD release date.
-Rain effects and thing. Detailed to the point where places under objects don’t get wet and when it’s sunny it dries up as you go.
-Tech demo they’re showing doesn’t seem to be Duscae, instead it’s the place from E3 2013 trailer where they fought Behemoth.
-There is a realistic dynamic day-night cycle complete with lighting thing Ubi was flaunting so much with Watch Dogs.
-SWORD WARP IS GAMEPLAY
I REPEAT IT’S WORKING GAMEPLAY
It’s much snappier than in the trailer.
-Fought Behemoth and a bunch of goblins. Party members attacked enemies on their own.
-Visual details aren’t completely fine-tuned yet.
-Fire spell animation seemed to be based on the shape of the enemy.
-No bosses in the demo
- Game is open world
- Demo has dungeons
They apologized on the stream about the lack of info since E3 last year, and said we will be getting info continuously now. Square Enix will announce more for Final Fantasy XV during their Square Enix Presents show, and.there should be muchmore info at Jump Fiesta in December!
will update if there’s anything else!!!
You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!
Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:
1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.
First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.
So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose. I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.
Scribble it down
start to put on features
put on more stuff
fix stuff again
erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring
Whole head is a gesture!
2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first. You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.
So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.
That’s the simplest explanation I got. Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!
it’s nice to see how others do stuff like this, everyone is different but there’s something to learn from everybody!
The company also announced today that, as part of a development restructure, Hajime Tabata, director of the original FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 and FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 HD, will now serve as the director of FINAL FANTASY XV, as the development of the title moves towards completion. This move allows Tetsuya Nomura to focus his full efforts as the director of other highly anticipated titles, including KINGDOM HEARTS III.
“In reviewing our development structure, we have decided to assign Hajime Tabata as the new director for FINAL FANTASY XV. Currently, Tabata and the entire development team are working, whole-heartedly, towards completing the production of FINAL FANTASY XV and ensuring the delivery of the highest quality FINAL FANTASY title to date,” said Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda regarding the staff changes. “We invite every one of our fans to view the fruits of our labor through FINAL FANTASY XV’s demo, and promise to present a game that further surpasses expectations when the finished product is released.
“As the director of FINAL FANTASY XV, Tetsuya Nomura has mainly worked on the original concept for the story and universe in addition to creating the characters. Hereafter, he will be focusing his efforts on the production of titles that can only be made possible by Nomura, himself, and delivering products that exceed the quality of past titles, starting with another one of his representative projects, KINGDOM HEARTS III. Square Enix will continue to work on these titles with the best staff formation in an effort to deliver them to everyone as soon as possible and appreciates your continued support.”
Why do you think Nomura has left the project? Do you think this will impact Kingdom Hearts 3 in any way, and if so, how?
