Rapture?
« on: May 10, 2009, 02:34:43 pm »
In case you don't know what rapture is...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapture_(video_game)

So whats this got to do with the Chrono series? Well the team who made this is made of many of those who work on FFXI much of the Chrono Team. Either this is something new, unlikely to SE's money grubby milking hands, or it could be some sort of MMO for a current series. Maybe the Chrono series? Of course this wouldn't explain the bunny person in the screens.

It doesn't have the Chrono vibe to it, even if a lot of the Chrono Team is working about, but I won't jump the gun and say it's definitely not something for the Chronoverse--just don't get your hopes up. And I thought I saw some images of Chocobo and some other FF-looking creatures, but that may have just been FFXI images linked to a Rapture page.

I remember this from awhile ago. If most of the Chrono team is working on it, sounds like "Final Fantasy XI kills Chrono: Part II."

We'll it's been some time since the last time they talked about it, but they keep on saying it has nothing to do w/ FF.

Kato & Mitsuda...? A Toriyama-inspired MMO might be interesting...oh, wait, isn't there (going to be) a Dragonball MMO...?

If the screenshots on this page are any indication of anything, I'd say this is in the FF universe: Viera, Chocobo, support by Square--these are things exclusive to FF.

Yeah, I've wondered why they're denying it myself. Maybe they're afraid of causing some kind of rift between people who own FFXI and people who want Rapture. I mean, if this is gonna overhaul FFXI, then it's a good idea to keep it kinda secretive.

Is this the first project by Square to have such secrecy? I feel like this is unheard of...

Crystal Bearers was a total mystery for two years between its first announcement and the recent information released.
