In today's final and fantastic episode of Speak up on Kotaku, commenter Paradox Me has an absolutely brilliant idea for Square Enix: Trash the failed MMO and recycle its assets for a new single player Final Fantasy game.
Why is Final Fantasy XIV so goddamn pretty and why can't we get this style in a single player Final Fantasy? I'm tired of the futuristic stuff, Square.
Just can XIV already, give Naoki Yoshida's team the green light for a single player Final Fantasy XV (recycling XIV's art direction), have Akihiko Yoshida do the art/character designs, find yourselves a good writer (maybe work something out with Yasumi Matsuno/Level-5) and then pretend to be surprised when your game sells well and is received well by fans.
About Speak Up on Kotaku: Our readers have a lot to say, and sometimes what they have to say has nothing to do with the stories we run. That's why we have a forum on Kotaku called Speak Up. That's the place to post anecdotes, photos, game tips and hints, and anything you want to share with Kotaku at large. Every weekday we'll pull one of the best Speak Up posts we can find and highlight it here.
