Im not even hyped for Final Fantasy either. Japanese RPG developers are like EA sports games. They seem to squeeze every little drop they can while maintaining the same style. The story will change and a new battle style but every else is same old stuff. The people look the same, the worlds, same atmosphere.
It just seems like JRPGs are just so generic.
Even Fallout 3 vs Oblivion which uses the same ass style still looks like completely different games.
It seems you could take every JRPG and they would all live down the street from each other.
