Square: Final Fantasy XIII not J-RPG (CVG 6/5/09)






Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase has said that he doesn't view his game as a J-RPG (Japanese RPG).

Odd, considering the Final Fantasy series basically defined what a J-RPG is - usually very different in style to the average western RPG like Oblivion, Mass Effect and Fallout 3.

But Kitase has reasons for his view. "There's a trend these days to strictly categorize games as western RPGs or Japanese RPGs, but Final Fantasy is something that we don't try to categorize as either/or," he explained to Edge.

"For us, the game straddles genre," he added.
