Countdown possibly about FFXIVFollow

This website here http://www.square-enix.co.jp/0706/ contains a countdown.

The background is a small village type area and there is a dragon being drawn on the screen. Now I am not sure if this is about FFXIV, but it's highly possible. And if you have the ability to read what the tab says on it it says NEW GAME.

Enjoy

Well, considering there's an official site for FFXIV..don't you think a countdown for it would..you know..be on the FFXIV site? Also it doesn't seem like the main stream Final Fantasy type of design nor logo, maybe one of the offshoots like Crystal Chronicles, Tactics or a SaGa game.

sorry no countdown for XIV,

if you watch it you can tell it is counting like this

Hours - Mins - Seconds

and 156 hrs = 6.5days

I doubt FFXIV coming out in 6.5days lol they will have a huge pre-order hype etc


EDIT: lol looks like my keyboard is typing itself >.>

While, yes, it has been discussed in another thread you can't ever blame anyone for duplicating a thread because the search function is only available if you pay for premium.


EDIT: There's a dragon on the page now.

I'll be nice and answer the OP's question.

This website has been discussed before. It isn't a countdown to FFXIV, it's a countdown to the newest game in the SaGa series.

The SaGa series is another MAJOR series by Square-Enix that rivals Final Fantasy's popularity in Japan, but has had very little publicity outside of the country. It is a series that is usually viewed negatively in America, due to it's experimental gameplay mechanics and unusually high level of difficulty.

There is already 4 games in the SaGa Series, the last one to come out was Romancing SaGa

http://na.square-enix.com/games/romancingsaga/

However there is only 3 games in the Grandia series that I have knowledge of. We could possibly be up for another one?

There were a lot more than that. I'm just going to take a quick copy paste from Wikipedia...

Makai Tōshi Sa·Ga
Sa·Ga 2: Hihou Densetsu
Sa·Ga 3: Jikuu no Hasha
Romanshingu Sa・Ga
Romanshingu Sa Ga Tsū
Romanshingu Sa Ga Surī
SaGa Furontia
Saga Furontia Tsū
Anrimiteddo: SaGa

Nine total games, not including numerous "Enhanced Remakes" for various games in the series.

I'm not familiar with the Grandia series, however, the webpage with the timer has an art-style which distinctly resembles SaGa's art (which has been making heavy use of faded watercolors and fine pencil line art). Much in the same way that you can look at the logo for Final Fantasy games, and tell it's a Final Fantasy game just by the artwork style (color gradient with no shading, often no lines at all).
