Is Final Fantasy an action series now? Square answers

Each game to be evaluated as it happens

There's no doubt that recent Final Fantasy games have shifted to a more action-oriented style, and Square Enix today answered a question some fans may have on their lips -- is Final Fantasy an action series now?

Square's Shinji Hashimato was on hand to say that the move to action is "not a trend," and that the company evaluates each gameplay shift.

"For Final Fantasy XV, we have action packed game system, but that doesn't mean the next title will be a similar thing," he said. "And we aren't ready to talk about the next game."

He also spoke of the level of challenge in XV, stating it'll have a flexible difficulty level, and be a game that's easy to play. 

"[An] action based RPG fits XV, that's why we chose this. For people like me, I want a game that's easy to operate. [We're] asking the dev team to be flexible about difficulty level. I want you to understand that the Final Fantasy series is always evolving, always challenging. This is a change JUST for XV."

The basic message is that, whatever happens with Final Fantasy XV, it doesn't represent a definitive change for the series, and that each Final Fantasy game should be judges as its own entity. A little worrying phrasing, since it seems to be geared toward preparing against an onslaught of angry fans. 

Here's hoping it's actually a great game, though! I want to play a really good main FF entry again.
