I'm still on the fence on this one tbqh  ??? I feel like SE should have left FFX-2 they way it is 'cause I like happy endings and I really like the characters' growth in that game, but at the same time I wonder how FFX-3 will turn out. I just hope the part about Yuna liking someone else is just an excuse to exclude Tidus out of her journey to beat Sin, I don't want that poor guy to get NTR'd (I'm saying this as someone who has been shipping these two since a teenager surely you jest) and I hope he won't fade again after beating Sin :'(

From what we've seen so far, it's intended to be a darker game than the second, more closely following the scandal and corruption of the first game.

It's clear, however, that presumed happy endings have been shattered. Eventual happy endings may happen, but the way people thought it went down after FFX-2 has been extremely challenged and uprooted.
The main reason for so much negative Japanese reaction is due to the shattering of their notions of how the characters left off. It's an understandable response, after reading what's been detailed in the novella and what's to follow plotwise with the audio drama.

I'm in a mix between I'm all up for it and hesitant.

I generally wouldn't mind having X-3 although I am a bit concerned with where Square-Enix is set to take the direction of X-3. All I'm just hoping that X-3 will explain the events taken place after the bonus audio and hopefully a good story.

I personally believe they can make a good game out of what they've shown us so far. Regardless of the novella events, which I don't think are that bad, the genuine material of the audio drama makes for a few good plot points. Definitely something you can build a solid third game around.

That doesn't mean I want them going head-on barreling into it, however. I'm more hesitant, like you; I see the potential for them to make a good game, but they can always ruin it as they have previous titles.

I'm going to support any new developments regardless, however. I want to see this story finished, regardless of it's outcome, even if it may not vibe with me.

@Internal Medicine Doctor - I agree with you.

Do you think it would've worked better if this was a pre-quel game (based on the events of Jecht, Braska and Auron?)

The problem with such a game is that we all know how it was going to turn out. FFX is praised universally for it's story, and having one of it's successors be a precursor to a plot already known would be thought of as not living up to series expectations.

I personally would very much like to see a prequel with the Braskian trio.
It wouldn't have to be a ground-breaking game, or anything with huge, suspensful developments; it would be more a game to enjoy and appreciate the little nuances and details of their journey. A game that focuses more on it's gameplay and interplay between characters rather than the overall gravity of the story.

That I believe, however, is the second main roadblock to making a prequel as seen through the eyes of a SE higherup.
They'd need engaging gameplay ideals. Something not too far from the first two, but not something as to completely throw off the fan base. I don't know what direction they'd go for that, seeing as how Braska, Auron and Jecht are already rolecast in specific battle types; no new classes to invigorate the formula.

I'd still like to see a prequel, though. If done well, people would happily accept it as canon for it's smaller details concerning the journey and it would be held as not a huge advancement in Final Fantasy history but a very enjoyable detour of it's normal formula.


It makes me wonder, however, what they're going to do for FFX-3 gameplay, especially concerning the combat.

Lame... this story ended 10 years ago. I am okay to see them, but I don't see any good point so far. It's too late, so I hope they can make it up on FFX-3. I hope FF doesn't go for some sort of coterie game.... Seriously, NTR would be really terrible after the FFX and FFX-2.

I feel uncomfortable, I mean FF X is my favourite game . X was perfect and X-2 was pushing it but somehow they managed to pull it off and the ending was beautiful. I don't see any reason at all to bring this game up again...
 With FF 13-2 they had a very dark ending, like nothing i've seen in the other games in the FF series (I haven't played every game so pardon me if I'm wrong) so it feels like they loved having a dark ending and they're like "Dudes, what else can we make dark and twisted? I know. Let's revive X!" I say that because from the info that is out so far, It looks like it will be a veeery dark game.
 So... if you really have to go for it, do not screw it up.

FFX is my favorite FF and when i watch the audio drama i honestly got excited for the idea of going back to the FFX world but then i found out about the novella and when i heard how most of it was written i thought what?! it just didnt sound like the stuff you would expect from a Final Fantasy story even the reviews for the novella speak for itself but i like the way the audio drama has been set up so IF FFX-3 does happen i hope some of the events in the novella get alterations for the story

Can't wait !

But I really hope they'll do something awesome out of it. FFX deserves nothing less (FFX-2 was kinda disappointing in my opinion).

When do you guys think they will unveil Final Fantasy X-3 if this does come true?

Probably as soon as they give Nojima the green light.

You know Nojima won't keep his mouth shut about it after his recent outspoken willingness to do the game.
When they give Nojima the go ahead, though, I'm not positive.
Since they already have a lot of material to work on,
and FFX is fresh in the mind given the HD Remaster,
it being announced would probably happen this year.

At this point... even though I'm not enthused about the novel or the audio drama, so far, (though I can't say I'm not curious!)... I'd actually be mad if they DIDN'T put something out! As much as I may not love the audio drama and the novel... I think it would be way worse of them to end the series on the note that the audio drama did.

Which is, not... really ended AT ALL. I mean, it doesn't even seem like an epilogue so much as a intro, you know? They barely answered ANY questions. They introduced far more questions than they answered.

So, if would seem kind of... crazy of them to just leave the series hanging like that, with not a single definitive answer about Sin, Tidus and Yuna, or anything else. This is a story that fans are VERY invested in, and I don't think anybody would be happy about it just being left on a cliff-hanger like that...

"So, Sin is back, and the darling couple of Japan's FF fanbase is broken up! ........ THE END!"

I doubt that will go over well, will it? xD

And am I right in my observation that FFX seems almost on par in popularity to FFVII in JAPAN? This is not so in SE's foreign market, no, but it looks that way to me in Japan, where they mostly seem to concentrate on deciding whether or not something is worth making??

Hesitant. I feel insecure with this idea, 'cause SE's games haven't been the best so far.
BUT, maybe we have to be positive with this idea, i want to feel that i can trust SE, as long as they do it right, everyone will be relieved.
Lets just hope that in the FFX/X-2 HD Remaster launch in Los Angeles,( thats going to be on March 16) they announce the FFX-3 project  ;D
 
FFX ;-)
