New leads?
« on: September 24, 2014, 01:20:39 am »
Hey guys I'm new to these forums just made an account, and just like most of you guys, I was pretty enraged with the cliff hanger left in the FFX Audio Drama, are there any new updates with FFX-3 news?

There hasn't been any new material for a while. Seems nobody wants to mention the drama, let alone the novel.

I don't blame 'em.

I somehow can't answer? "... I'm just a kid."

That's a bummer, I personally don't think they'll announce anything until FFXV is released or near release. I know they have the power to make it during FFXV but I don't see them doing so, I personally don't see any announcement coming until next year or couple years after.

another question is, if they received so much negative feedback on the audio drama/novella, wouldn't that make them not want to make ffx-3 ?

I think what happened was that Nojima wrote the drama and novella with the intentions of continuing with an X-3, since he expressed his want to do so. However, the incredible backlash against the material put Square Enix off the decision. Not even the Japanese fans liked the new add-ons, and they were pretty okay with the XIII sequels from what I've heard.

Think about it: a few days before the HD Remaster's release, Nojima expresses his positive opinion of a new entry, and even says he has a full idea of what the story would be like if it ever came to fruition. Then all the negativity and controversy came, and now SE comes out and says that the new material was just to 'expand the world of Spira'. It really can't be coincidence.

So I guess there probably won't be another FFX-3? I wish they'd just make a small movie like they did with Advent Children atleast... They ruined a perfect series by leaving that audio cannon a cliffhanger with no intention to move forward. Really sucks...

But then again it's hard to consider audio drama cannon unless they decide to continue the series, a cliff hanger as a ending doesn't make sense
