Unconfirmed:Square Enix Holding Conference Early Next Year, New FF Versus XIII Details Expected

Nearly 2 years have passed since Square Enix first demonstrated in game footage of its upcoming action rpg to the public.
While details surrounding the long awaited Final Fantasy Versus XIII continue to be secluded for another year, word on the street suggests that the media blackout regarding Versus XIII may end as early as the new year.

According to the Final Fantasy grapevine, Square Enix is preparing a special conference to be held January 15th-17th. It’s rumored that Noctis and company will have their day in the sun once more after a two year absence as new in-game Final Fantasy Versus XIII footage is expected to be revealed. A new playable character will also reportedly be shown as well. (Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy XV, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS Vita, PS3)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 35

i hope so waited for to long for ffvs 13 to come out but inthe end it will be the best rpg this generation?
NastyLeftHook0  +   523d ago
best rpg this gen imo is demons souls, but im just as excited as you about versus and i hope its exclusive so there is no compromises. but finally after all this time we finally hear about it. wow.
Blastoise  +   523d ago
Demons souls is awesome. A really original and atmospheric RPG, with a really cool online that you don't see often in RPG's. Plus the combat and character customisation is really deep. Best RPG this Gen for me too.

As for FF Versus 13 I don't even care anymore. With Ni no kuni, The last of us & Beyond we've got enough (probably better) games to look forward to

***"i hope so waited for to long for ffvs 13 to come out but inthe end it will be the best rpg this generation?"***

Ah, good to see you still *hope* as I've given up all hope for FFVS13 as it seems like SE doesn't know what they are doing when it comes to Final Fantasy.
Ranma1  +   523d ago
They will use announce that they will announce something in the future.

And when that future data comes, they will announce that "announcement/details to come in future"
dasbeer88  +   522d ago
The best RPG this generation has got to be Lost Odyssey. I'd like to see Versus XIII topple this game though.
Jinkies  +   524d ago
I hope they rename FF Versus...I really do

Final Fantasy Versus or Final Fantasy 15 either will do
Hellsvacancy  +   524d ago
So you want them to rename it to something that its already called? makes sense

Ill be happy with a release date
Jinkies  +   524d ago
Just if they drop the 13 from it

I don't want it to be related to that "thing" or franchise in anyway.

They've had plenty of time to seperate the mytho they were both going to share.
The Great Melon  +   523d ago
I hope they rename it because the 'Versus' always made it sound like a spin off rather than a full fledged game. If they outright named it something like Final Fantasy XV it will get more recognition. Also if it is actually really good, then calling it FF XV will help wash away some of the bad press that they have gained through FF XIII.

While I doubt it would be renamed to a main entry FF, I do think changing the 'Versus' would be in its benefit. Honestly, the 'Versus' makes it sound like a fighting game set in the FF XIII universe.

The hard, cold truth is... it is a spin-off with the FF name. That doesn't negate how great it's gonna be, but the gameplay is different to most FF games and it's certainly darker than any previous one in the series. Sure, it has a lot of potential as a main entry title, but it's simply not.

You might be right about the name, but 'XIII' will remain due to the mythology behind the crystal and Etro. "Versus" will probably remain because of its definition as the polar opposite of FFXIII.

@DigitalRaptor

"but the gameplay is different to most FF games and it's certainly darker than any previous one in the series"

FF13s gameplay was terrible, especialy the battle system the main part of the series. I could of considered that a spin off, I mean the way Versus is going it's more of a FF game then FF13. I mean it has the overworld map for starters. If we arn't going back to turn based I'd take the Kingdom Hearts battle style over the crappy shift system in FF13
SenshinSable  +   518d ago
I hope that by polar opposite, that means it will be a non-linear game with an acceptable story line. It would even be nice if most of the game's content was actually delivered to us, rather than consumers having to spend extra money for a complete story line.
RivetCityGhoul  +   523d ago
if there is no FF versus details, then piss off sqaure. there isn't anything i want to hear from you period.

I really couldn't give less of a crap about this game anymore. 5 years ago, sure, but not now. If they're done with this, Nomura can finally start of KH3.
shempo  +   523d ago
KH3 omg...when they r finally starting making that game already....cant wait anymore
DigitalRaptor  +   523d ago
So... when they finish this game and it comes out in 2014, they will work on KH3, and most likely will take 3 years to make and release. So it'll probably release 5 years from now (2017).

If you've given up on Versus XIII after 5 years, won't you also have given up on KH3 after 5 years too? I think it's the fault of Squeenix for announcing it too early and your fault for getting too hyped and not controlling your patience.

I mean look at how hyped you're getting for a game that hasn't even been announced yet or has been confirmed to be going into development. Sure, Nomura might have expressed enthusiasm for wanting to make KH3, but it's in the hands of Squeenix.

Lots of people are going to get disappointed again. Unless we see a confirm release date, this game does not exist. Set yourself for disappointment now than later.
MrAnderson  +   523d ago
1. it's not gonna happen
2. if it ever comes out it will be terrible, just look at final fantasy 13 for a good example of just how bad squenix games are these days
3. don't waste your time or money on anything squenix make anymore.

This is the type of conference SE will use to announce some info on FFVXIII. This is typical of them. People expect news at E3 or the TGS and SE knows this. Nope we will give news on FFVS at our own conference. Typical SE.
Qrphe  +   523d ago
I'd rather use FFvsXIII to be honest, VXIII makes it seem like it's an actual numeral (which is not).
Hanso  +   523d ago
cool 2-3 new details and i can forget the game again for several years looool
pls release it finally SE T.T
aiBreeze  +   523d ago
Lol people are being far too optimistic. They are probably using the conference to announce a port for ff13 and 13-2 for the vita or some other BS nobody asked for.
Kamikaze135  +   523d ago
Here, let me summarize the conference for you:

"Game development is going good and we're making great progress. The developers on the project are all very optimistic about Versus XIII. Believe me, it will be well worth the wait"

They'll proceed to show a CGI trailer and tell us it will be released in 2014. Then in late 2013, they will tell us there will be a conference in early 2014 and tell us Versus was delayed till 2015.
wishingW3L  +   523d ago

Summons75  +   523d ago
CGI Trailer??? You do realized they have only shown in game demo with cutscenes right? Get out of here troll. The game has been in development for 3 years and only full development yearly this year. I love watching impatient children cry about things they know nothing about and troll games they never have played (FF13)
Kamikaze135  +   523d ago
Yes, thanks for your assumptions.
J86blum  +   523d ago
Believe it when I see it. Square Enix trolling since 2006.
-Gespenst-  +   523d ago
I think part of the reason people are getting so riled up about this game is rumour.

Most of the rumours about the game's appearance at this and that conference are unfounded, which has repeatedly lead to disappoointed and people getting angry at SE.

But in most of the cases it's not like SE have said "we're showing the game at this and that conference" and then failed to deliver. People should be angry at whoever started the rumour. It's these that have drawn attention to the game's absence. We should really just relax until it gets released or otherwise.

I admit SE have been working on the game for an inordinately long time, but it's their game. We're not entitled to it. When it finally does come out, you don't have to buy it if you don't want to, but don't act like SE owe it to you or something.
League_of_Draven  +   523d ago
New FFvs13 details are always "expected" but new details never come. Instead they announce more sequels and spinoffs to the crappy FF13 game.
dasbeer88  +   522d ago
League of Draven lol. LoL is by far one of the best competitive multiplayer games I've played in a while.
Kte  +   523d ago
lets just see what they got... I've got no faith in this company anymore whatsoever (Except for 14, that one is all Kte) but for 3RD gen RPG games, they have died a long time ago.

Kind of ironic that we get news of Final Fantasy vs.13 a few days after that article where it states that Squarenix is suffering financially.

Still regardless it is about time that Squarenix get there head out of their asses and prove to the world that they can still be a revelant player in the gaming industry like they use to.

This rumored showcase needs to have something that will 'mind blow' all the doubters about Final Fantasy vs.13 that it does exist & will be a crowning achievement that we all hope it can be.

DATE: 1-4-2013
TIME: NOON
LOCATION: SE Press Conference

Thank you all for coming and we are pleased to announce that we have absolutely no new updates for FF Vs XIII at this time. Sometime in the next 10 years or so we will come back with a similar useless update about the game. In the meantime please buy our Westernized POS games that have basically put us in the poor house. So again thanks for coming to our useless presser that has revealed no new info for you & please please by our westernized garbage games in the mean time.
Nada Nuff  +   523d ago
I won't believe it until I see pix. Japanese game developers are hurting, and putting popular games on the back burner is necessary to make ends meet (it's already happened with two of the biggest titles this gen--The Last Guardian and FF Versus 13). They're too proud to admit it so they make up stories about quality assurance and so on, but face it--the Japanese game industry has seen better days.
