A CGI feature film produced fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент the same team as Advent Children,was released in July 2016 in Japan and in August in America; it focuses on the main character's father Regis Lucis Caelum, alongside original characters. While comparing the Final Fantasy XV Universe to the overall structure of Fabula Nova Crystallis, the game's director defined it as an attempt to make the narrative of XV work in current times rather than attempting to "reinvent" the original concept. XIII and its sequels have a strong connection to the mythos, making extensive use of its terminology and fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент many of its deities. Type-0 used the terminology and made minor reference to the mythos while focusing on the human side of events, although these references were added during later story development. While the mythos is still present in XV, it was "disconnected" from the core framework, with specific terminology being removed and its emphasis reduced to become a background element for the world and story. The mythos' deities hold similar roles in each game's setting, but are not the same characters in a narrative sense. The universes of XIII, Type-0 and XV are unrelated to each other, though common elements and themes are present. The first is a common narrative theme of harmful interference by the mythos' deities in the affairs of humans, and those humans' choice of whether to accept or challenge the predetermined fates given to them. Believing that the mortality of the world is Mwynn's curse, Bhunivelze creates three new deities to search for the gate to the Unseen Realm so he can control both worlds. Bhunivelze then enters a deep sleep, while Lindzei and Fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент carry out their missions. Distraught at being abandoned, Etro kills herself, and humans are born from her blood. Once in the Unseen Realm, Etro finds Mwynn being consumed by a force called chaos, which threatens to destroy reality. As Mwynn fades, she tasks Etro with protecting the balance between the worlds. Etro gives humans pieces of chaos that become their "hearts". Because humans held chaos within them, they maintained the balance through their death and reincarnation. Since then, humans have either worshiped fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент feared Pulse and Lindzei, and refer to Etro as the goddess of death. A recurring race in the games are god-like fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент created by Pulse and Lindzei to act as their servants in the mortal world. In the original mythos and the XIII games, the demigods are called fal'Cie. They take the form of crystal-powered mechanical beings in the XIII games. In the universe of Type-0, they are both semi-sentient crystals and humanoid beings living among the people. The fal'Cie have the ability to imbue chosen humans with magical powers and assign them a task to complete either willingly or unwillingly. XIII and Type-0 refer to these people as l'Cie and the task given to them as a Focus. In the worlds of XIII and Type-0, there are two possible outcomes for l'Cie: once their Focus is fulfilled, they can go into 'crystal stasis', transforming into a crystal statue, and gain eternal life, but if they fail they become mindless crystalline monsters. In Type-0, l'Cie are chosen by the crystal of their country, and given great power to fulfill their assigned Focus, but lose their memories if emotionally unstable. While not referred to as such using the original terminology, humans imbued with magic exist in XV, one of them being the main protagonist Noctis. A common element not related to the mythos, themes or plots of the series is the use of in the games' titles or worlds, often as key words to describing themes and story points: the series' title translates as 'The New Tale of the Crystal', 'Agito' roughly translates as "to put into motion", while 'Versus' translates as both "to turn around" and "against", which were described as representing key narrative concepts. Commenting on the high use of Latin in XV prior to its public name change, Nomura stated that he wanted a language that was no longer used on a daily basis and that people "won't be able to understand and yet appreciate", desiring a sense of general equality. Discussing what to do after the completion ofNomura, and decided to build upon the idea of multiple games connected by a single "central theme". This came from thea multimedia subseries featuring the world and characters of. Whereas the common link in the Compilation was VII, the fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент chose to use "the tale of new crystals" for the new series, with the mythos connecting the games rather than an overarching narrative. Another key idea behind the mythos fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент to ease the production of future Final Fantasy games by providing an established mythos. Scenario writer started writing the original mythology for the Fabula Nova Crystallis series in 2003, finishing it by February 2004. During his work, he received creative input from game producers Hashimoto and Kitase, as well as Nomura, and. Nojima wrote a about the mythology, explaining concepts such as the fal'Cie and l'Cie and the feelings of the gods who created them. This bible became the basis for a video animated by 's art team to showcase the Fabula Nova Crystallis story in 2011. None of the deities were depicted in human form in the video, as this would have undermined the developers' wishes for open interpretation by developers and players. The individual directors are allowed to freely interpret the base mythology when they create their games. When referring to this freedom, Tabata has compared the mythos and the concept behind it to ; a mythology with common themes and deities, but featuring a large variety of unrelated stories. Toriyama conceived a story for Final Fantasy XIII set primarily around the mythos' deities and their direct relations to the world. Tabata and Nomura both focused more on the human side of the story. Tabata chose to portray the divine elements from a historical standpoint in Type-0, while Nomura created a modern-day setting similar to contemporary Earth in XV, referring far less to the mythos' terminology. Nomura was also appointed as the main character designer for all entries in the subseries. In a 2007 interview, Hashimoto compared the planning of the Fabula Nova Crystallis series to film franchises such as and : an expansive brand on which to build multiple titles planned in advance. The development of all games connected to the mythos was handled by. A trademark for Final Fantasy Haeresis XIII hinted at another entry, but the trademark expired in 2011 and the company did not renew. It began as a title for the under the codename "Colors World", however it was moved onto PlayStation 3 after the positively received demo in 2005 and the delayed release of XII. The original titles in the series were XIII and Versus XIII. Agito XIII was conceived later, when Tabata was looking for a new project after finishing. Originally titled Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy XIII, the three titles were announced at E3 2006: Agito XIII was a mobile phone title similar to Before Crisis and the other two were PS3 exclusives. XIII was developed by team members who had also previously worked on Final Fantasy VII, andAgito XIII was handled by staff from Before Crisis, while Versus XIII 's development was headed by the team behind the console games. XIII and Versus XIII were intended to form the core of the series, with future games each being a "facet" of XIII. Agito XIII and Versus XIII both began production in 2006. By 2008, Agito XIII had been moved onto the PlayStation Portable, then later renamed Final Fantasy Type-0. The stated reason for the change of title was that XIII and Type-0 shared little besides the core mythos. The title change also resulted in the "XIII" numeral being dropped from the series title as it "would have been an issue". Late in its development, XIII also changed from being an exclusive when an Xbox 360 version was announced, significantly delaying its release. A port for Microsoft Windows was considered, but not followed up due to platform-specific concerns and the company's view of the video game market. Later, all three XIII games would receive PC ports through. As early as 2007, Square Enix considered re-branding Versus XIII as a numbered entry in the main series due to the rapidly growing scale of fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент project. The game was eventually re-branded in 2011. As part of its later marketing, Final Fantasy XV was deliberately distanced from the Fabula Nova Crystallis brand to remove the consequent limitation on their target audience, although lore and fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент elements were retained. The game was also moved fully onto eighth generation consoles and developed using the company's new. The PS3 version was abandoned due to concerns about the console's continued viability. Type-0 's western release was delayed due to the flagging PSP market in western territories. A high-definition port to the same platforms as XV was co-developed by Square Enix andand was eventually announced for a western release. It was developed with the intention of boosting console sales prior to the latter's release. After the release of Final Fantasy XIII, the creators wanted to expand on the game's setting and tell more stories about the characters, so XIII-2 and Lightning Returns were developed. For these games, Japanese developer fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент brought in to help with the games' design and graphics. The three games and their respective tie-in media were referred to as the "Lightning Saga" by Square Enix staff after the games' central character. While there was speculation that Fabula Nova Crystallis would end with Lightning Returns, Kitase repeatedly stated that there was still room for further titles beyond the XIII universe. Alongside that, Tabata created Agito around his original ideas for Type-0 as a mobile title. Agito acted as both a prequel to Type-0 and an alternate story set within its world. The game was co-developed by mobile game developer Tayutau K. Later, Chinese developer were brought in to help with Type-0 Online. XV eventually had help from multiple developers, including HexaDrive, and. In an article concerning the 25th Anniversary event for the Final Fantasy series, 's Ben Gilbert called the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythos "occasionally bizarre and often beautiful". In 2014, Jeremy Parish of said that the series was "much ado about nothing", stating that since the games shared a large amount of themes and plot points with the main series, there seemed little reason for a distinction. Kat Bailey, writing for USGamer as part of her review for Final Fantasy XV, said that series fans were ready for the subseries to come to an end with the game's release. Speaking about fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент XIII games in particular, Parish suggested that their mixed reactions influenced the title changes of fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент games in the original series, giving the teams a chance to give those games more of their own identity. He also felt that the decision to expand the XIII storyline into multiple games "probably worked out just as well". The presentation of the mythos and its terms received mixed reactions in XIII, resulting in the production team toning down their use for XIII-2. Siliconera writer Spencer Yip, in his review of Lightning Returns, commented that the story and pace of the game was "muddled" by the mythos. In 2016, RPGFan writer Mike Salbato wrote a retrospective of the XIII games and their version of Fabula Nova Crystallis: he felt that fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент lack of specific references to the fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент in XIII had harmed general comprehension, and that a reliance on foreknowledge made its sequels difficult to play as standalone titles. In contrast, the portrayal of the mythos in Type-0 was praised by RPG Site's Erren Van Duine in an import review of the title, with him saying that "elements such as l'Cie and fal'Cie are handled in much more fabula nova crystallis final fantasy скачать торрент ways". In the west, the game was praised for its graphics, battle system, and music, but opinions were mixed about its story and it was criticized for its highly linear structure. XIII also won an award for best graphics in 's 2012 Platinum Trophy Awards. XIII-2 received a positive reception overall, gaining perfect scores from Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation, and high scores from most western sites. Common points of praise were its non-linear nature, improved battle system and graphics, while the main points of criticism were its story and characters, which were often called weak, confusing or both. Lightning Returns received mixed to positive reviews, with its combat being highly praised, its graphics and time limit mechanic drawing mixed responses, and the story and characters being cited as poorly developed. Type-0 had a highly positive reception in Japan, with it garnering near-perfect scores in Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation. Import reviews were also fairly positive, sharing many points of praise with the Japanese reviews. Type-0 HD also received a positive reception in the west, with main praise going to the story, characters and action-based gameplay. Other aspects came in for criticism, such as elements of the graphics upgrade, the real-time strategy segments, and the localization. Western previews of Agito have also been positive, with critics agreeing that it looked good on the platform and worked well from a gameplay standpoint. XIII-2 was the most purchased title of 2011 in Japan upon release, and reached second and first place in sales charts in the United States and United Kingdom respectively. Lightning Returns had lower first-week sales than its predecessors, but still topped the sales charts in Japan, selling over 277,000 units in its first week and over 404,000 copies by the end of 2013. It ranked as third and eighth in the UK and US February sales charts respectively. Approximately 800,000 copies were sold by as of November 2014. The three XIII games have collectively sold 11 million units worldwide. Speaking of the decreasing success of the XIII games and their effect on the Fabula Nova Crystallis series on USGamer, Jeremy Parish felt that the initial backlash received by XIII had turned the " XIII" moniker into "box office poison". Type-0 sold over 472,000 units in its first week, and went on to sell over 740,000 units in Japan. The title was also added to the company's list of Ultimate Hits, re-releases of lucrative titles.
