Square Enix: You're Doing It Wrong

GR's Bryan Allbright writes:

While Square Enix has a rather decent line-up on the publishing side of things with games like Hitman, Tomb Raider, and Kingdom Heart 3D, they did something today that is bound to make many gamers unhappy. In 2006, Square Enix announced a group of games known as the "Fabula Nova Crystallis" which would include 3 Final Fantasy games titled Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and Final Fantasy Agito XIII. These games were promised to be some of the best Final Fantasy games ever made, but there was an issue, promises were broken.

Hmmm, let's see... We got XIII, a multiplatform game with a decent story, good characters and endless corridors. Agito, which STILL has yet to come out in America, and Versus XIII which is somewhere in development limbo. Oh wait, plus the unplanned XIII-2. Which was good in all honestly, but was still quite lacking in more than a few departments.

How about LISTENING TO YOUR FANS FOR ONCE ENIX???? Maybe then you'll be able to put out a masterpiece on par with your older games.

(Oh, and don't move your headquarters based on the advice of a fortune teller again... -_-)

i would honestly love a ff13-3 lol, and i think you know why.

but yeah i want Versus first ofcourse and WTF!!!!!!!! I want agito, if square doesn't announce it at TGS then im gonna have to import it

Versus XIII its only been in full devolpement since 2 years ago or so the problem is the game´s anouncement was too dam early.

By judging on gameplay footage they showed over a year ago seems worth the wait.

Im hoping to get FF-Type 0 this year to say at least.

your like the only smart person on this site.

most idiots dont understand Versus hasn't been in development that long.

Square just showed off every game in the fabula nova compilation which was a mistake apparently since morons will be morons and will always cry

So he is hoping for SE to launch Versus and then wait some years to prepare for next-gen? No way, I don't want to wait. They are big enough to have diferent studios working at same time.

Studios have to be evolving and preparing. As FinaLXiii said, Versus is just 2 years in developement, and it is said to have a choped-down version of Luminous studio as the core engine. Just be patient and undesrtand that we are talking about a ton of hours and a ton of money there.

Square enix are more intrested in their western development by edios things like Tomb raider, hit man and deux ex have kept them alive.

FF sold well but they kinda messed up ff 13-2 was already planned from the get go they just tweaked everything that was wrong. Versus has been sitting gathering dust but I am still waiting for it cause I am sucker.
