Nojima Talk (Will, FFX-3)
« on: January 08, 2014, 09:00:10 pm »
On the 27th of December 2013, No stated that he would personally like to see a X-3 in an interview.

“If there’s enough demand, then we may possibly see new developments,” says Nojima on the subject of a possible third installment of the Final Fantasy X series. “I would personally like to see a sequel like X-3.”

see the full interview here:
http://www.siliconera.com/2013/12/26/final-fantasy-x-scenario-writer-possibility-final-fantasy-x-3/


As of the 8 January 2014, he was interviewed further, even going so far as saying he has thoughts on what should be in the sequel:

"Nojima recently mentioned that he’d like to see a sequel to the series with a possible Final Fantasy X-3. Famitsu asks him what kind of story would he write if a sequel were to be put into motion.

“It’s a secret,” says Nojima with a laugh."

On the audio drama:
“I wrote it while thinking ‘this should be a game’,” says Nojima. “So it was a mix of thinking ‘ahh, all the spoilers’ and ‘but I would want to surprise them’ and things like that. For the record, there’s a plot from start to finish, and if there’s some way we can have it show up elsewhere… well, so I’ve said to Square Enix."

NEWS as February 2014



Thanks to Ananda we've heard that SE is not looking to do a X-3 but looking to "expand X's universe" through the audio drama and novel:

On the 13th February 2014, Shinji Hashimoto, the series producer said "the audio episode’s inclusion wasn’t because we have any plans to develop a Final Fantasy X-3"

Then, Famitsu asks who was the character he had the most trouble writing for.

“It’d have to be Lulu,” says Nojima. “If she were just cute, it would’ve been simpler, but I had no samples in mind of how a pretty or beautiful lady like her would think or live. I don’t think that Watanabe (Daisuke) who worked with me had any ideas either.”


...dear god, she's a human being ffs :|

Haha that's what I thought too.  So Rikku must have been a cinch to write  ;)

Well, Japan has a declining population and an alarming number of 30-year-old virgins for a reason. =P Nojima is married with a kid now, but it's possible he was still pretty awkward and inexperienced when writing FFX in the year 2000.

Nojima said there's a plot from start to finish.


I wonder how intent he is on making this game...
if it's as strongly as he's expressing through these interviews, I think he can convince Square to give him the thumbs up.

It is true, SE could follow him in this idea.
If they do it with an interesting storyline and a awesome gameplay, I'm in!

 ;D

What if they end up ruining it, however?

Not to harbour support against the game, but would you rather them not take the chance as to preserve what image you have of the series so far?

If they ruin it, its the last time i buy something from them, i know its scary to think that they are going to destroy this amazing game, but at the same time, we want to be positive. Its a hesitant issue, but if they start at the wrong direction, X-3 wouldnt exist for me. And what do you think of this Internal Medicine Doctor?  :-D
FFX ;-)

I'd like to see it done.

I don't care if they do it poorly. I want to see this story resolved. I want to see a new adventure in the world of Spira.

Games like this, they do the most important thing art can do for humanity;
create wonder.
Wonder, and amazement, and imagination and creativity and passion.

Spira is a concept of open arms for these types of gifts that the artforms of the world award mankind.
I want to be amazed again,
I want to imagine again.

I want to wonder.

I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I'm not offended by it, but I'm not thrilled either. X-2 certainly didn't leave a need for this. Of course, neither did X, but X-2 didn't bother me, honestly.

In my opinion, I want the game now.

I wouldn't have said that prior to the release of the novella and the audiodrama.
As X-2 ended perfectly, and let you have the ending you thought would fit.

But since they already opened up so many threads. You can't close them unless you finish it.
And that means X-3.

If it's bad, I'll just treat it how I treat, Star Wars, Matrix, etc.
(IE it slightly tarnishes the reputation, but the originals I still love to death).

I'm worried because I would expect that the feedback from -Will- and the novella to be atrocious, and I fear that will put them off.

But then we need a sequel so they can flipping explain themselves! Surely they wouldn't make it all so vague and plot-holey without having a sequel to explain it all?
