Final Fantasy XIII could Mark the end of the Traditional FF Style?

With Final Fantasy XIII's international release nearly upon us, it would appear that Square Enix is at something of a crossroads. Speaking with Edge, president Yoichi Wada definitely seemed to have the future on his mind. 

"I believe Final Fantasy XIII is going be something special, and that it's going to be well-received by the audience. But whether we are going to continue to internally create this type of game remains to be seen, because I actually feel that the team that was involved with Final Fantasy XIII should next move on to create and generate some 'next generation' forms of play," Wada said. 

"Internally and externally I feel there's an expectation of Square Enix to offer something new, and I really think that the Final Fantasy team could create something completely different, but at the moment they're strictly catering to the particular audience they have now." 

It's not entirely clear what Wada means by 'next generation forms of play.' Don't be surprised if Final Fantasy XV turns out to be radically different than Final Fantasy XIII though, perhaps more along the lines of Final Fantasy XII's unique approach to the genre. Perhaps either Motion Controls, or Natal could be incorporated into the gameplay with 3-D technology display! this could prove a ground-breakthrough for Square Enix as it really is time for them to change the game to fully utilize new technology. Although it will be extremely difficult based on the large fan base of FF, but things can't remain the same forever... that is for sure.

In the meantime, Final Fantasy XIII will be out March in North America. Where Square Enix goes from there remains to be seen.
