This May Be Footage From Fortress, Grin’s Final Fantasy XII Sequel

By Spencer . January 17, 2010 . 11:39pm

Before Grin closed down they were developing a Final Fantasy XII sequel codenamed Fortress. Tons of assets leaked, like the Cid-esque moogle and concept art for Queen Ashe.


A two minute YouTube video also surfaced which is said to be “tech demo” footage from the unreleased game. Since we can’t verify the source we’re going to label this as a rumor. It might be Fortress. It might be a mock up for Chocobo Fantasy. Either way, the video is interesting to mull over as a base for an action oriented Final Fantasy XII follow up with Barbarian dudes.

    So.. if this ends up as a Final Fantasy Title.. im seriously dissapointed. :I
    This could be an own franchise but not FF.

    woa, well is still in test but… there was already a sequel for ff 12 in the DS right…? so would this be a sequel of the sequel? maybe same world different story/characters?

  • Code

    Is it just me or does anyone else, I get a really strong Oblivion vibe from it x__x; Also does it really count as a western title if it’s developed in Sweden >w<? Seriously do-not-want, and I'm glad I will-not-get! Hooray or something!

    •!/Kamiwoo Kamiwoo

      How is Sweden not a part of Western culture? I mean, it doesn’t literally mean “West”, you know…?

      Anyway, I’d love to see FF12 in HD or something, but this thing is definitely not what I want.

      • Code

        rar, oh I know, I’m just playing >w< A lot of people seem to think Grin is like in Boston or something xpx; Although to be fair I do think European games have there own flavor compared to North American games.

    This looks more terrible than a crying baby cockroach.

    • MisterNiwa

      High five for that one.

  • Tim Nguyen

    If this really is FFXII. It really was Westernized. No actual RPG elements?
    The world looked okay, though it is just a play test. The Chocobo was huge and slightly ugly. This would’ve been one very risky game to actually push out with the name Final Fantasy attached.
