Final Fantasy XIII may have been a success on the market, but many long-time fans of the franchises had some major – and arguably valid – complaints against the titles. In an interview with Gamasutra, Yoichi Wada, President of Square Enix, mentioned a possible reboot of the franchise to be on the design table for the next entry in the franchise.
“When it comes to customers’ reaction to the quality of the game, some value it highly and some are not very happy with it,” said Wada. “I think this is a product that was able to meet the expectations for those who know Final Fantasy…There are all kinds of games around in the market today. Should Final Fantasy become a new type of game or should Final Fantasy not become a new type of game? The customers have different opinions. It’s very difficult to determine which way it should go.”
