Final Fantasy

The Final Fantasy series has long been the poster child for games of the RPG genre.

If I’m honest, I can’t imagine a world in which the first Final Fantasy release on the PS Vita won’t be a huge success, it is likely to sell a large amount of copies regardless of what aspects it includes, simply because of the quality of the series and the name that Square Enix has built for it. But, this is obviously not going to equate to the quality of the game, and for me there are a number of things that must be included in order for Final Fantasy to really be as big of a success on the Vita as it truly deserves to be.
