A tipster apparently overheard this on the E3 showroom floor: Square Enix plans to give the world an official release date for Final Fantasy Versus XIII at this year's Tokyo Game Show.
I hope it's true!! I hope it's true!! I hope it's true!! the problem with me i never trust rumors until I know it is confirmed from developer by announcing it in gaming shows or a video reveal on their websites.
Rumors end up being true 75% of the time.
@Gravelord Not sure if being sarcastic... or just plain crazy.
Still have faith when Nomura is on board. Hopefully TLG and Resident Evil Portable will also make appearances.
If it is true, my guess is mid 2014, which basically means they can just announce the release date next year anyway
@blitz - Seriously doubt that. If they're announcing at TGS, I'd think it is more likely that we'll see a December release date in Japan (same as FF13 and 13-2), and around February for the rest of the world (maybe March).
I was at E3 and when I asked about Versus XIII they wouldn't even say if the game was in development or not. That's how quiet they are being on the game. However the person did say that we should get news on the game at some point this year. Take what you want from that but by December 31 of this year, they better have something to say about Versus XIII.
Over 43.5% of dubious statistics are spontaneously made up. At least 84% of people know that.
Better be there, i almost lost all my hopes on this game
FFv13 is coming on PS4
if Versus XIII isn't shown at TGS I will personally storm the Square Enix HQ, walk into the First Production Offices and ask Mr. Nomura: "what the flying f*** are you doing??" mark my words.
@ torchic, have you learnt nothing from Solid Snake!!!
Expectation: Storms SE building and catches Nomura alone in his office. Grabs him by the shirt with finger pointing in inches away from his face while giving him the lecture of his life. Reality: Arrives at the parking lot gate with no way of entering. Hesitant on what to do next. Grabs 2 weeks old McDonalds burger wrapper left in your junky car and attempts to toss it through the gate in a fit of frustration(Yeah...that'll teach him) only to have the wind blow it back. Sees security car casually strolling by and runs back into the your car and drive off in fear.
@ specialguest I go to this website everyday and always read the comments to the news that seems to interest to me and I think its been about a year since i logged into my account but i just want to say that was hilarious i dont know why anyone would disagree to that funny comment.
Not a FF fan.... but my friends have been waiting for this game for a long time...
Probably 4th quarter 2013
i can see it now... FFV13 gets a release date at TGS 2012... then it gets delayed... LOOOL
Final Fantasy vs 13 = 2013 13 GET IT
It kinda has to be true, otherwise it would make square Enix really look silly to release another final fantasy before versus.
they said that last year ...
I hope it's true, but "a tipster apparently heard this at E3" isn't exactly the most reliable news source. :(
i hope so.
let this be true but i dont want to get to excited yet. always have to take versus news with a pound of salt.
hahahahaha lol lmao rofl, my sides hurt lol. I think this game will end up taking 10 years to make.
Isn't this just glorified "he said, she said"?
my XBOX 360 is ready
LOL! I have to say, I think this game has Xbox 360 gamers on edge as much as PS3 gamers. One wishes it would be announced for their console, and the other just wants the damn game to come out (and also wishes for it to stay exclusive). But I just want to see something new from it, and a release date would be nice.
@DigitalRaptor To be honest, I don't think either side is "on edge" for this game, minus forum people. The Final Fantasy franchise is no longer the pinnacle of RPGs - and there is only more competition on the way. Versus should have come out 2 years ago.
@josephayal This says otherwise: http://gematsu.com/2010/09/... You see its not going multiplat. Its suppose to be max out the PS3 because the game is massive. The only way it will come to 360 is by port but Nomura wants to work on Kingdom Hearts 3 after Versus XIII.
Did Square have a contract with Sony to release the game exclusively for PS3? Cuz if not, the wait could be due to the fact that they decided to make the game multiplat @Creative-enigma That article is 2 years old... we do not know if they did decide to make it mp
They didn't have a contract, or at least I don't believe they did... Though I know Nomura said he didn't want multiplatform because it lessens the quality of the game. Since he's in charge, I don't think we'll see it going mulitplat.
The game has been taking forever because the the only people who were woking on it was the core Kingdom Hearts developers up until last September when it went full development. Lets not forget all the Kingdom Hearts Portables. Nomura even confirmed it last year January 2011 that the game is still exclusive. Not in full production only core developers working: http://www.destructoid.com/... In full production everybody working: http://gematsu.com/2011/09/...
You could be right about the extra time being needed to down port it to 360. Yet you and SE should know by now, the uproar and bad press will destroy SE for it.... -Everyone knows FFXIII was heavily downgraded due to being ported over to 360. -That SE sold us the SCRAPS that were taken out of XIII to make it fit on DVD as a new game called FFXIII-2. -Versus kept being put on the backburner just so they could finish XIII and that was an atrocity. -XIII suffered from an extra 1.5year delay for the port and in that time they just held onto the PS3 version instead of releasing it(like MS does timed-exclusives) which is infuriating. -Versus was promised time and time again as an exclusive to PS3. Yet again SE would be proved as liars if we see otherwise. In essence there is a lot to be pissed off about if it turns up being Multiplat and I think that will surely be the final nail in the already sinking SE coffin.
lol yeah right.... In your dreams kid.
I hope its true....TGS last chance Versus coming this generation...
Kingdom Hearts HD at e3.... that is all
Sorry Square Enix but when I see the end credits rollling on my TV, thats when I'll believe this game was actually released, MAYBE !
not when you put the disc in your PlayStation?
I'm not gonna lie, SE is starting to impress me. With Versus on the horizon and the FFXV tech demo...they are making some improvements. I hear Thearhythm is a good game too. I dont want to get my hopes up but just maybe...they are starting to really come into their own again, like a Neo Squaresoft...
please be true fans are tired of BS.
Im pretty sure we'll see it at TGS.
Hope so TGS would be the right place to do it
All I want for TGS 2012 for Final Fantasy Vesus XIII is a 10 minute reveal trailer confirming a release date & the game being exclusive to Playstation 3 also Nomura giving us a blowout of information.
TGS hopefully VersusXIII release date,gameplay make Tgs even more some info on the rumored KH HD collection.
Just name it XV and move on.
I dont know if SE plan to announce anything regarding Versus XIII on the upcoming TGS but I would be glad if they change the name & remove this "XIII" from it, it left a very bad taste in the mouths of countless of FF fans out there, make it XV or type-0.1 I dont care but we have enough of this abomination which is called FFXIII no more plz.
Haha people are gonna freak out if this doesn't happen.
I know better then to get my hopes up but.... Hope this is true!
i hope it's true! been waiting for to long for this game.
i hope it get annouced at tokyom game show i cant wait to see it running on ps3 hardware
This game has to come out within the next two years. This gen is almost over. I want them to work on it and make it a great game, but we need more details and a time frame for release. I really hope they take the XIII out of the title. Just call it Final Fantasy Versus or Final Fantasy XIV. EDIT: I mean XV. I forgot FF XIV existed.
Final Fantasy Versus XIII Coming in Q3 2013 ( In japan ) ! Remember .. It's just an expectations !
The question is, why it is still in the RUMOR stage?
I'm sick of this type of news. "according to an unnamed source"!
well, to be fair, if not for this kind of news, Versus 13 wouldn't get ANY news, period. I'm not saying it's vaporware. Just that, you know, it's equally substantial to it.
i disagree, let us forget it i don't care if doesn't get any news cuz lies or as some websites call them "RUMORS* are worse because they get your hopes up just to crush afterwards///
where the hell did type 0 go any way. i want type 0 and vs 13 more than anything.
As much as I would love to see the game get a release date at TGS the "tipster" as it is know is very unreliable, but as long as there is some news about the game, screenshots and or a new trailer it will still intrigue me. I still think though that we won't see the game until next year; so with that in mind I am going to stick with my borderlands and halo 4 until the game that convinced me to buy a ps3 shows up.
yay heres the hoping again, for playstation 3 and XBOX 360
Just face it people: FF vs. 13 Last Guardian Agent Vaporware.
Alright, thats what i'm talking about.
I dont believe this game exists anymore. And in case it will release i'm sure it will suck like FF13 did. They are delaying it because they are having huge problems with it cause no game takes over 6 years to develop, we saw the same with Duke Nukem Forever.
Diablo 3 took 12 and that came out fantastic
yeah the sequel came out 12 yrs later, but it certainly wasn't in development for that long. FF13 has been in development way too long to not show anything.
My guess is that after the bad reception from gamers which ff13 and ff13-2 got, square enix tried to incorporate into ff versus 13 all the suggestions and comments the fans had made and that turned the game into a big mess. But I hope I'm wrong about that.
ff13 and 13-2 in my opinion where great games...but the 360 dumb down 13 because of it being on dvd disc besides blu-ray....and u guys will still have hate against ffv13 like omg he had red hair he suppose to have black hair this game sucks....but truthfully gamers are extinct we have nothing more now than fanboys and people who complain about every freaking game that comes out
I really enjoyed 13 and 13-2, yeah I didn't like hope and I feel a couple things could have been different but everything was great in the end. 13-2 fixed a lot of the mechanics from 13 and the story was the perfect tragedy (and I mean tragedy like the greek meaning where there isn't suppose to be a happy ending). I honestly can not wait for vs13 and with them taking notes from Hamlet it just gets me more excited since it's my favorite Shakespear work. I want it to come out but if they need to time to make it better than so be it I will have no problem waiting for it.
@slaton24 you misunderstood my comment, I never said that FF13 and 13-2 were bad games. Infact FF13 is my favorite JRPG of this gen. I have played all the JRPG that came out from Enchanted Arms till FF13-2 and after playing FF13 all the others become unplayable to me. What I was trying to say is that developers should not have listened to the fanboys and my guess is that the FFvs13 delay is due to Square Enix trying hard to please the fanboys and that may have clouded their vision and direction for the game.
