THE BUZZ: Yoshinori Kitase, Producer on Final Fantasy XIII-2, has revealed that the next major title may move away from its turn based roots due to the changing tastes of gamers.

Kitase said in an interview with Edge that the rise in popularity of action-RPGs is, “a trend…you ignore at your peril.”

“I think the nature of the franchise is to present something new each time. In the global market we see many players moving away from games that used turn-based systems toward what you might term an action-RPG,” he continued. “FFXIII and FFXIII-2’s battle systems have those elements of speed and action that are the key words for us, though that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re going to stick to the same route in our next game, that’s something only time can tell.”

EGM’s TAKE: You have to move with the times or you get left behind. Final Fantasy is a series that is conatntly evolving, however losing its roots may anger a lot of long time fans.
