Have you ever dreamt of playing Final Fantasy on HoloLens? While this may sound like a wild dream, somebody actually ported Final Fantasy to HoloLens and even posted a video about it, showing the game’s menus floating in air around a laptop’s screen. In this manner, players can use the laptop’s screen entirely to display the game, while HoloLens takes care of the menus and other in-game information.

Like this, players can focus on the game itself and check various information or adjust game settings by moving their heads. HoloLens projects inventory information, stats and more around the laptop.

Most likely, the above images show how devs have modded Final Fantasy 14 to make it compatible with HoloLens, but it could also be a concept video.

This intriguing video confirms the potential of augmented reality games. Perhaps the games of the future will indeed free up enough display space so as to project only actual gameplay on a screen.

There is also another question that many users ask: How comfortable will this HoloLens gaming experience be? Some players may not like the idea of constantly turning their heads to access game information. Other players think their focus will be affected as they’ll need to turn their heads to various directions in order to find the information that they need, losing sight of the laptop screen.

Only time will tell if such a game design will be implemented on a larger scale in the future. What is indeed certain is that many more VR and mixed reality games will hit the market in the coming years.
