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.

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

NastyLeftHook01348d 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.

Blastoise1348d 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

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.

Ranma11348d 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"

dasbeer881347d ago

The best RPG this generation has got to be Lost Odyssey. I'd like to see Versus XIII topple this game though.

I hope they rename FF Versus...I really do

Final Fantasy Versus or Final Fantasy 15 either will do

Hellsvacancy1349d ago

So you want them to rename it to something that its already called? makes sense

Ill be happy with a release date

Jinkies1349d 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 Melon1348d ago (Edited 1348d 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.

DigitalRaptor1348d ago

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.

"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

SenshinSable1343d 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.

RivetCityGhoul1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

if there is no FF versus details, then piss off sqaure. there isn't anything i want to hear from you period.

ritsuka6661348d ago

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.

shempo1348d ago

KH3 omg...when they r finally starting making that game already....cant wait anymore

DigitalRaptor1348d ago (Edited 1348d 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.
