This blog here: http://ff13vids.jugem.jp/ is reporting that Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings on the DS is just the beginning of set of games from S-E called "Ivalice Alliance" and that the second title will be Final Fantasy Tactics - The Lion War on PSP and the third title will be Final Fantasy Tactics A2 - The Sealed Grimoire. It appears that the PSP FFT is a port of the original with new jobs.

Edit: It's all real! Jump scans are in:




More details: FFT The Lion War on PSP will contain new jobs including the Onion Knight job, as well as newly added illustration style cel-shaded FMVs depicting the story. Details on FFTA2 will be revealed at a later date.

If FFTA2 is more like FFT, it'll be awesome. If it's mediocre like FFTA, I'll be picking up a PSP

I also hope the FFT port isn't just a shitty port like the Riviera port.

Wait, WHICH is the FFT port? Lion War or FFTA2?

And why are they calling it FFTA2 anyway?

The Lion War would be the remake since that's what FFT's story line was based around.

Have you ever played FFT? The entire game was about the truth behind the "Lion War" in Ivalice history. :D

If PSP's getting the port of the original, I hope DS is getting the true sequel. I think two screens and a touch screen can do so much for a tactical RPG.

Might be just tentative and for right now to identify itself with the Advance series, thus being a DS game.

EDIT: Or hell, it might even be a GBA game.

Recognition? Advance Wars: Dual Strike doesn't follow the naming convention of Famicom Wars, Super Famicom Wars, etc.

Granted that is less of an issue for a series like Final Fantasy.

Didn't you hear about the deal Nintendo and Square-Enix made? Square-Enix can make DS games, but only if they make a GBA title for every several DS ones or something like that.

Wow now I just have to hope PSPs will finally price drop so I can justify buying one just for the FFT port.

Good stuff though! Though without Matsuno, I am guessing new console games set in the Ivalice universe are out of the question. :/

Sigh, Final Fantasy Tactics 2 on Wii or PS3 please

I'd rather play remakes and ports of Matsuno's games then to see some newbie director **** up Matsuno's vision.

Square-Enix already has DQ Monster Joker, DQIX, FFXII: RW, and FF: Crystal Chronciles coming out the DS through late 2006/2007 ... I think this is starting to get into overkill territory.

At this rate, Nintendo won't even have to release any DS projects for 2007 to keep the DS selling.

...huh. How 'bout that.

I'm definitely all, 110% about a new Final Fantasy Tactics, so I'll say I'm excited! Also, while yet another PS1 port to PSP is a little bit :lol, an expanded version of the original FFT with added gameplay content (and maybe in our fondest dreams... a halfway decent English translation?) is certainly something I wouldn't kick out of bed.

EDIT: This does line up well with the dude in the DQ IX thread who kept dropping all those weird hints about FFTA2 being on the way....

He was a high profile producer at Square Enix with a lot of control over his game series, I doubt that even the executives would have tried pushing something like that on him. I mean for all I know you could be right, but I find it hard to believe. I'll stick to the current theory that he went batshit insane directing FF12.

That would be nice.

But what we'll actually get is 50 underage koreans working at 2 cents an hour at TOSE creating a port which looks, moves AND sounds worse than the PS1 original.

just get the port and skip the non-matsuno spinoffs.

as shitty as the PSP is, its worth buying just for FFT if you are a fan.

If true that would seem weird to split up the series like that. Especially since Tactics would be the easiest of the PS1 FFs to port to DS.

well it's still a PS1 game in the end, so thats probably why they chose to port it to PSP.
and i dont think a system for the FFT2 game is confirmed, but it'll likely go to PSP as well.

Me too, but I think Ogre fans have pretty much given up on the series ever being ressurected. If Quest was still around, at least we'd still see companies like Nintendo or SNK publishing new Ogre Battle games. Thanks a lot Square Enix, for killing one of the best SRPG series ever. >:(
