No way is that happening. It took them ages just getting it to 30fps on PS4. And they didn't even manage the whole game. The part in Altissia has terrible frame rate. Not happening for the Switch at all.
I bet they're considering a PC port though.

I would bet the same is true with FF7. They're gonna want that to be one of the biggest games of the decade. Which it probably will be. I doubt they'll be willing to compromise on the visuals for the sake of the Switch. Although if the Switch takes off massively in Japan, you never know.

So, some glitch allows for the exploration of a mostly-complete (bar enemies and presumably NPCs) Niflheim. While likely cut for time, patches or the DLC episodes could use the area in the future.

Also, Moogle Festival on the 24th.

Just about to post the same thing.

So the second continent that you don't get to explore in the game (you see it from a train and just move along a linear path between small areas on the continent) is actually on the disc for the game and large parts of it are explorable and look almost finished.

That's incredibly depressing. Looks like they really did just cut large chunks of the game out. No wonder it feels unfinished.

Famitsu interview reveals future plans, including:

  • Improving the “scale and comfort“ of the later chapters. That could mean anything, but it sounds like they're listening.
  • Possibility of “time-limited mob hunts based on enemies from the original story“. Does he mean Versus XIII?
  • More party members, possibly playable somehow.
  • Player created characters/ avatars. First thing that comes to mind is the multiplayer that's coming, but the main game isn't ruled out either.

I think I'm actually about to hit the less-linear part. I actually wouldn't mind it if the game eased up on the sidequests for a bit.

Well I've sold my copy now. Possibly rebuy the inevitable complete edition in about 2 years time when they've added everything!

@FGPackers

Seems unlikely to me. They only just got this working on the PS4 and it still struggles in some places. Also happens to be an in-house engine.

A PC port seems much more likely than a Switch one.

I beat this about a week ago. Overall, quite fun.

The ending.... without spoiling, I'll just say that I didn't care for it, although I wouldn't call it bad.

I definitely see the sudden linearity shift after a certain point. Truth be told, I didn't actually mind it. I figure it's because I was at 60 hours played on the main continent before moving on, doing nearly every sidequest I could get my hands on. Eventually, you just want to move on and see more plot already.

That said, I'd like to think they have plans for that large, empty-ish area.

I do wish magic had more diversity. While it's undeniably powerful, and you can mix in a few extra effects... I miss my White/ Black/ Time/ whatever magic. Especially Cure.

Now, onto the postgame. And eventually, maybe the DLC.

@DarthNocturnal

I wouldn't generally have minded the linearity if it didn't come with the terrible storytelling where the plot just jumps all over the place.

Beyond that, it was the fact that one of the best parts of the game was how well designed the landscapes were. Exploring them was interesting and fun. The second continent looked quite interesting from what we saw. It'd be nice to have seen more of it up close.
Also, they really needed Tenebrae to be explorable. Or another town somewhere. For how big the game is, there's a really terrible lack of towns.

So Tabita spoke to Famitsu:
http://gematsu.com/2017/02/final-fantasy-xv-director-hajime-t...

TLDR:
-He's acknowledged that most people have problems with the storytelling.
-PC port seems likely.
-Massively expanding the explorable world through DLC is not part of their plans. Booo.

I'm putting my prediction down right now. They WILL expand the game world to cover Insomnia, Tenebrae and the rest of the Niflheim continent but it'll be because they release XV-2.

Welp, after just over 130 hours, I think I've gotten everything of significance out of this game until the DLC arrives. All achievements, all bonus dungeons beat, best weapons, etc. There's a few minute loose ends, but, there's no real incentive to go after them unless I get super bored (fish and dishes mostly). Everything at this point is overkill.

Here's hoping that FF VIIR (or maybe patches/ DLC, depending on what they have in store) can fix some of the understandable gripes (only control one character, limited magic, etc). But overall, definitely one of my favourably viewed Final Fantasies.

130 hours is a bit extreme. I was done after 40.

I just don't enjoy doing all of the extra sidequests unless the main storyline is keeping me engaged.

I sold my copy and I'm gonna wait til all the DLC is out before maybe retrying the complete edition, or whatever they call it.

I got pretty far... chapter 9 boss I beat, and then got sidetracked.

I really, really enjoyed the combat. But the open world... it just felt so uninspired in a post-Xenoblade X world. And unnatural. It was so earthlike that the few zig zaggidy mountain peaks seamed out of place, whereas XCX world was so alien everything felt natural and in place.

The dungeons, combat and boss fights were top shelf in FFXV though. I like the open world format too, but I think they can do much better in the future. Something along the lines of XCX.

PLAYING
NS: Monkey Ball, Cruis'n Blast
3DS: Metroid Samus Returns
Steam: Horizon Zero Dawn
PS5: Ghosts of Tsushima
MOST EXCITED FOR
NS: Metroid Dread, SMTV, Bayonetta 3, Splatoon 3, Triangle Strategy, MH Rise Sunbreak, Zelda BotW 2

XCX is a better game in every way I'd say. Better characters, better story, better world. More to do.
