In 2015, just before the launch of Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix declared that “the future of the franchise would depend on the sales of the new video game.” It’s amazing to think that today, just five years later, an avalanche of titles related to the series is in production, including Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, Final Fantasy VII Remake: Part 2, Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis, Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier, Final Fantasy XVI, and – most likely – two other unnamed spin-offs. A testament to the great success of the franchise, which has no intention of stopping.
As reported by the reliable leaker, Navtra Square Enix would be working on two projects related to Sakaguchi’s imagination not yet announced, which apparently could be presented during the E3 2021 panel. Yesterday, new information has arrived on the titles in question. The source is a very reliable French leaker, the same one who anticipated the release of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends months ago.
According to SoulsHunt, this is the insider’s name. One of the two titles in question would be developed by Team Ninja ( Nioh, Ninja Gaiden ) exclusively for PS5 and Final Fantasy Origin. The leaker compares the title to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order with several references to the soulslike structure and a possible release in 2021, complete with a demo published in the summer.
In addition to the comment visible above, there are two other reasons why we can consider this leak sufficiently reliable. The first is that even according to Navtra, one of the two titles would have been a PS5 time exclusive, and the second is that we know for sure that Team Ninja is working on a lot of video games and that it has several announcements planned for 2021. A mashup between Final Moreover, Fantasy, and Nioh could work relatively well, and given that in recent years Square Enix has indulged in RPG, management, battle royale, and so on, we can not exclude anything.
And what do you think of it? Does it seem possible to you? Tell us in the comments if you’d like to see a Final Fantasy with soulslike combat system!
