Different Takes on Final Fantasy

At this year's Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix is showcasing how various illustrators and manga artists envision Final Fantasy. The result is a different spin on the Final Fantasy games and characters you know and love.

Many of the illustrators (such as Higasa Akai, Aguri Igarashi, and Shiro Amano) have either done art for Square Enix on different games or properties—but not necessarily Final Fantasy! This is a collaboration between FF and Square Enix's manga imprint GanGan. Have a look.

Me, I'd be more interested in seeing what other developers would do with a full Final Fantasy game. Because let's face it, Square isn't doing so well with it right now.

Imagine Capcom. Or Kojima Productions. Or Nintendo.

Or hell, let's go crazy. Imagine a Bioware-made Final Fantasy. Or a Gearbox. Or Bungie. Or Valve. Or Double Fine.

Doesn't have to be a "main" FF title- it could be a spin-off, like FF Tactics or Mystic Quest. I myself have a few interesting ideas for an FF title, from a curious hybrid of Tactics with ATB, to a first-person shooter. Maybe I should start a blog for these ideas, they're hardly my only ones.
