Final Fantasy Versus XIII producer Shinji Hashimoto appeared as a special guest on Ginza SWING covering the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy. He took the opportunity to talk about his long awaited project.
I hope we can give our opinion on it soon enough *stares at SE*
from the gameplay trailer that they showed it looked very amazing actually. here u go if you didn't see it yet, View it in 1080!! http://www.youtube.com/watc... gameplay starts around 3 minute mark if you wanna skip to it
Of course I saw the video. But a video is a video, and it lacks the "game" on it. So I will issue my opinion once I've tried it. And a preview of it once there's enough gameplay. There's never too much gameplay.
I needed that laugh. Thanks for showing SE who's boss.
What? There's pretty strong evidence that the game is going to be pretty amazing, i.e that trailer Lucretia posted.
@-Gespenst- Haha I was actually being serious about the laughing! Jreca phrased his comment perfectly. And the game does look incredible. Just can't wait for it to come out.
There that shows the project is still alive now people need to stop crying about it.
And the fact that the CEO came out and said it was definitely still in developement when the rumor about being cancelled came out. No one was crying about it not being alive this time.
b...bu...but Kotaku said its DEAAAAD!!! Oh yeah wait lol.
This is a good change from the "please be patient" response we've been hearing all this year. Maybe they're getting ready to show something
Hes the producer and all he can say is its "supposed" to be amazing. Surely him of all people should know for sure
actually I like that, he isn't getting cocky like other developers *cough*ninja theory*cough*. You can make something and say it's the second coming of Christ because it's that amazing but when it's finally done and people can play it they may not think so. V13 is suppose to be amazing, and it looks and sounds amazing, but there is always the chance it may not be. Look at FF13, there is a chuck of people that didn't like the game (ironically it's the same people who loved FF7 advent children so much that wanted to have fast paced combat like the movie that didn't like it). Me personally I loved 13, sure it had it's flaws but it was still highly enjoyable to me and I have been playing Final Fantasy since 6 was called 3. I sit in wait for this game and I can't wait for it.
agreed, I really enjoyed 13-2 though, it was fantastic. but Versus is my Number 1 want.....just hope the US version doesnt take another year lol
Er, well the duties of a producer aren't necessarily to playtest or develop the game, a lot of their work would be directing the admin side of things.
I've been waiting for this game for a long time. I hope we get another look at it real soon with the game coming out sometime next year even though that is unlikely.
Third party console exclusive are becoming a rare breed.
So it can be gimped like ff13 and they can sell the remaining part as vs-2 yeah no thanks.
Either way. If it comes to 360 i'm getting it. If not. You bet i'm buying me a ps3 and if i don't have enough. I will sell the xbox with all my games. That's how far i would go for final fantasy and kingdom hearts.
So that when the game doesnt live up to expectations we have another scapegoat.
No way you crazy?
@ josephayal It's funny how you Xbox loyalists are always claiming that the PS3 doesn't have any good exclusives in those Xbox vs Ps3 articles, but every time a Ps3 exclusive is "rumored" to go third party or just looks too good (Just that..a rumor), you all beg for those games to be released on the Xbox 360 (Happened with Valkyria Chronicles, MGS4, Demon Souls, and now FFVs13). Edit: The MGS4 rumors and Xbox enthusiasts were the best laughs. Before the MGS4 rumors, Xbox enthusiasts: "MGS4 sucks. It's a movie not a game" Journalists: "MGS4 is owned by a third party, it could come to the 360... *looks left..looks right* In fact it probably will soon." Loyalists: "OMG, really?!?!? I love MGS. MGS4 looks so epic too. If true, I can't wait to play this gem. Man, this is the best news ever!" Hideo: "MGS4 is not coming to the 360" Loyalists: "MGS4 sucks. It's a movie not a game"
@Dante112 That's no different than FFXIII being the end-all be-all of RPG's in many Sony loyalists' eyes and shouts. Then, almost literally the second the game was announced as multiplatform, all of those same people claimed to have never been excited about it anyway and that they were really waiting for Versus. Both groups are sad, sad people.
I always looked forward to Versus XIII over XIII for three reasons: 1) I loved playing the Kingdom Hearts titles and I loved the movie Advent Children. All directed by Tetsuya Nomura. I always wanted Nomura to go in a darker tone with Kingdom Hearts and when I saw the first trailer for Versus XIII I knew thats the game I wanted from him and his team for years. 2)XIII's first trailer didnt appeal to me. It's concept never appealed to me. And when I finally played the game, I was right. It was a terrible game. 3) I have never trusted Toriyama as a Director. When he directs a game solo they turn out to be crap (X-2, Revenant Wings, XIII, XIII-2). So I have always wanted Versus XIII more. ^^^ As you see above it's not because of something as dumb as platform exclusitivity. I wanted the game more because it looked cooler and because of the reasons above.
or you can support SE and Sony by getting the game the platform is on...
You are an idiot and every time there is an article about FF13vs you start trolling about how your xbox 360 is gonna get it. It wont, this is a REAL final fantasy and you would need 8 discs in order to handle it. So just STFU and keep your 360 shenanigans to yourself.
I think it's kinda weird that he used "supposed." But anyway the gameplay trailer we already have looks penomenal and I think they said that was before they gave it another graphic boost.
Yay more stuff we already knew.
If he said this at an event covering the 25th anniversary event does that mean maybe it will be at the 25th event in September. If not it has to be at TGS a few weeks later but either way i'm excited about when this will release.
TGS TGS TGS TGS TGS TGS TGS TGS I want this came shown and a lot of details. I have been waiting so long!
You know what's pretty bad. Back when this was first announced I was just a young kid going into my sophomore year of high school. Now all these years later I'm going to have my first kid before this game even comes out(she's due in December) and I'm still waiting for it.
hopefully there will be a FF Vs XIII blowout @ the TGS that's coming up.
What does Versus mean ? Is it a different style than JRPG or what ?
it plays like Kingdom hearts its an action Jrpg. Hack in slash. Everyone would love a hack in slash Final fantasy, with good graphics, story thats why everyones excited.
It's also got some shooter elements too. There's vehicles and everything. The gameplay seems to be varied and looks like it will be very refreshing. I'm sure it will be simple enough to get the hang of, but will also have some depth to it. Hopefully theres extra bosses that require different types of skills like in KH.
Wow...I had no idea this whole time. I guess I should have done some research, because it actually sounds like a really fun game. Releasing for PSP /Vita PS3 ? anything else ?
Im starting to think SE might be planning for XIII-3 and VErsus XIII to be released in the same year 20"13" it makes perfect sense. And for me it would be a good year for final fantasy.
I have a good feeling about Versus XIII that wont disapoint by any means.
