Ah...well, it's not like they are gonna share with Game informer before the do with Famitsu and the likes.

Hope for TGS gameplay trailer/date etc. But not surprised if it ain't there.
Abash  +   1148d ago
Whatever they have to share, it'll probably be at TGS or some other special event

You know what? Screw SE. I am done with them for good.

I actually have a feeling that something might show up at Square Enix's Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary party in Japan...
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1147d ago
Is there a date for that? I've been wondering why I haven't heard them doing much for the 25th anniversary
PshycoNinja  +   1147d ago

"Square Enix will host a Final Fantasy art gallery in Shibuya ward, Tokyo later this summer in celebration of the series’ 25th anniversary.

The company plans on showing Yoshitaka Amano artwork, development materials, various other objects, and will host stage events.

On August 31, Square Enix will open the gallery to those with early access. On September 1 and 2, the general public will be allowed entry."

Ok, don't take my money.
Godmars290  +   1148d ago
Oh please. At this point they're the only game company that has to earn it. As far as I'm concerned anyway.

Screw you SE!!!>:|
Kamikaze135  +   1148d ago
Oh how I wish I could be in charge of the project. I would say things like "Yes, today I can confirm that grass is confirmed to make an appearance in Versus XIII" or "Clothes will play a major role in preventing characters from being nude in Versus XIII"

It better come out this year for Japan.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1147d ago
If they stay true to what they originally said six years ago it will be a simultaneous release date worldwide, but who knows now.
AriesFury  +   1148d ago
I don't think anyone really cares anymore. This game has past the point of no return for me. SE really has let their fanbase down in the worse way.

If or when this game comes out I won't be buying it at full price. They lost that respect from me.
Irishguy95  +   1148d ago
Lol, one good trailer and you'll be eating it up again.

What if the game turns out to be good? Are you gonna ditch it because it took long to come out?
Skateboard  +   1148d ago
Maybe its taking this long for a reason. Nomura is trying to pull off a world map with good realistic graphics that has airships and cars : / not that easy braaaaa.

Too much demand for this game to just fade away as "vaporware". Besides, the people posting comments like "I haven't cared about this game in 3 years" obviously care, they're just being impatient. My money is on this game being a next gen title.
NYC_Gamer  +   1148d ago
Does the game even exist?i doubt its even in full production.
AnotherProGamer  +   1148d ago
It went into full production late last year
PshycoNinja  +   1140d ago
It went full production in July of last year. I personally don't consider that "late last year".
izumo_lee  +   1148d ago
Unless they announce a definitive release date at least in Japan than we should not bother with 'hoping' for any news about this game.

I still believe Squarenix is purposely holding off this game cause they know they screwed up this gen with their decisions on platform & development management. Releasing this game is admitting to that & i doubt their egos will let them.
Hicken  +   1147d ago
You always have reasonable comments, yet you still only have 3 bubbles. What's up with that?
izumo_lee  +   1146d ago
For me personally i do not really care about status on this site. This site is for voicing ones opinions whether they be reasonable or fanboy-ish. If people agree with what i say, great but if they do not it does not matter.

I do appreciate the sentiment though.

I got to the point where I'm more worried about a new Nippon Icchi game than a Final Fantasy.
bootyCheese116  +   1148d ago
"but in other news we have a new Final Fantasy spinoff just for Final Fantasy fans"
sirauron14  +   1148d ago
I want news on FFX HD
Ascalon94  +   1147d ago
yeah because that will be on the vita and ps3
palaeomerus  +   1148d ago
I didn't like the looks of this from the get go. Another effeminate lead with lots of zippers and a magic sword? Zaibatsu/Yakuza in a big rainy city? A #@#$ing Hamlet theme? Bleah. No thanks. Then it just sat there with nothing happening for about two years now.

I gave up on this. This is not a thing.
maddfoxx  +   1148d ago
Nice try, but the main character only has one zipper. . . and its on his coat. Coats have zippers, just in case you didnt know.

And what makes him effeminate? Because he doesnt have big muscles or thick facial hair, or scars? Why do people want their main male character's looking like unrealistic American action heros?

Its more straight and manly playing a muscle head sureeeeeeeeee ; )
PersonaCat  +   1148d ago
But of course! There's nothing more heterosexual than playing as a big, sweaty, muscular man!

xtreampro  +   1147d ago
Because it's depicting a skinny male wielding a giant sword which makes no sense and would never happen in the real world, and he's supposed to be a prince.

This would be a better depiction of prince http://gc.digitalriver.com/...

Why do people want their characters to do nothing but look pretty?

8bitHero  +   1148d ago
they shouldve asked about a western release for FF type-0. i seriously want that game. if we get no info by the end of the year ill probably just download an iso and play it.
PersonaCat  +   1148d ago
I heard somewhere that they were porting it to vita instead for a US release? Don't know how true that'd be, but it'd be pretty awesome.
wishingW3L  +   1148d ago
this game must be the most revolutionary piece of software of this gen if it keeps taking more time for development.

FF always have fancy CGI cutscenes, and I wouldn't be surprised if Square is wasting too much of the development time in making very pretty CGI cutscenes.

Remember most of the FF vs XIII gameplay are still hyped except the little that released 2-3 years ago. Reality is we have no idea how the actual gameplay is like except assumed by gamers.
alessandro10  +   1148d ago
i will recommend to forget about this... if it comes it comes

AnotherProGamer  +   1148d ago
From the info I read about this game I think this is going to be the best final fantasy yet
arbitor365  +   1148d ago
meanwhile, im sure they are working on FFXIII-3
wnek9  +   1148d ago
my response to wada

TheRealHeisenberg  +   1148d ago
There is no new info because SE is on a gag order until they finalize their deal with MS to bring it to Xbox Next.

You can trust me on that.
CLOUD1983  +   1148d ago
well if something like that happen then they can be sure that me and a few thousands others will not buy a SE game again ever, I mean EVER!
Wada is free to go & get some paychecks under the table from M$ they have more than prove that they dont give a fck for the old hardcore fans & that's why their sales r going to fall more & more from now on w8 & see.

Is it rational to deprive your customers of a product they furiously demand? That's like going to a 5-star restaurant that only allows you to look on hopelessly at the menu. Square Enix is shooting themselves in the foot.
SegataShanshiro  +   1147d ago
That's not true you know why? Cause no matter how much they deprive you and the other people who want this game, you and everyone are still gonna buy it because that's the way fanbois are, look at ff13. Wants it like the worst ft game ever and didn't it sell like a gazzilion copies? And the people raging about it being on the Xbox? It didn't matter cause it still sold
KrimsonKody  +   1148d ago
I mentioned it before, & I'll mention it again;
It doesn't exist!

Ultimately, it's probably just some really hot lefted over demo scenes that gotten high praises back when they were shown, but never were intended to be a game.
So now that fans want a game from it, & they're having a hard time producing one.
I guarantee that we will get another completely new , unannounced FF game before "Versus" is released.

& just think about it;
"Nothing" new to show about a game that your supposedly working on?
Any other company would've scraped the project by now, bercsuse it's a waste of resources & production costs that could be used elsewhere.
kent80082007  +   1148d ago
You're a genius! Genius! Everyone has been fooled but you!
jdklaffke  +   1148d ago
I'm at the fifth stage of the grieving scale - acceptance. We shouldn't be so entitled anyways. They have no obligation to consumers to keep making games or to release this game quicker than it has been taking.

Oh well. It'll come out eventually, that's for sure because there's no way that it will get scrapped at this point.

It will be a great game. Could be the last great PS3 game before next gen revs up.
UnitSmiley  +   1148d ago
I'm still hopeful. Yes it's taken awhile but as long as the game is good, I won't be complaining. In fact, I hope the reason it is taking so long is because SE realizes this game will be the one that gets their fans trust back, or forever leaves a nasty stigma on the company and finalizes many peoples fears that SE no longer cares.
