Lightning Returns team reaches development milestone

The Lightning Returns Facebook and Twitter accounts have seen recaps over this past week on topics such as battle customization, time elements, and even day and night cycles.

Today, producer Yoshinori Kitase spoke up for the first time in quite a while, providing a little insight on where Lightning Returns is currently headed, as well as when we can expect some new information. (Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Square Enix, Xbox 360)

I did my waiting...12 years of Azkaban!

Well it looks like this game, which was announced about 6 years after FFvs13 will be released before FFvs13


Square Enix, what are you doing !!

So what exactly is getting you so excited for versus? I can barely remember anything about this game anymore. It's hard to understand how often I can read a comment shouting for versus but I don't really see how 1 or 2 trailers and a few blurry screenshots can get so much me I was excited for versus when it was announced but that was 6 years ago with almost no news since.

The funny thing is someday this game might just be made and going off SE track record it will more than likely disappoint, so I suggest backing a new horse.

This sucks.I hope they fix the problems they're experiencing and give us a gameplay trailer :).

your the only one who wants this game to exist

Can you blame her, she always wants or defends something which the majority of people don't want. She seems to always like being on the side which is loosing.

RE6, FF13, dmc etc

@Jinkies: Well you can't have a troll account without a theme.

@Jinkies so in other words she's a hipster

So that's what hipster means. I'm might use that from now on, but probably not.

To save my comment from being flagged for off topic conversation... I hate this game and want FF Versus.
SolidGear3  +   1172d ago
Don't worry, Mika. I'm with you too.
Lovable  +   1172d ago
Can't wait for this game! I'll enjoy it as much as I enjoy the two previous 13s. 2013 is looking really damn good if we're not dead by the end of 2012.
Jinkies  +   1172d ago
Just like FF13-2 big things being hyped up like battle customization, time elements, and even day and night cycles will all be small minor things when you come to play the game....just trying to sucker you in one last time to buy something FF13-3 related.

I hope people learn there lesson this time

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me...fool me three times and I'll just label myself as retarded.


You know whats hillarious the Nova_Crystallis twitter is covered in FF Versus stuff, yet we know hardly nothing about it and they never talk about it themselfs.

I hated 13 and enjoyed 13-2. I think it's just you.
Summons75  +   1172d ago
Yeah, hope people learn the should play the game before trolling on things they don't know or quit crying because ff7 isn't as great as people make it out to be
Jinkies  +   1172d ago
Says the guy who before the Dmc demo arrived hated on the game without playing it...not complaining since it is crap and I did the same, like many of us but your really trying to say that I can't call a game before it's out when you did exactly the same with dmc....come on man

You know as well as I do that you don't need to play a game to know how bad it's going to be

FF13-3 will be crap and they will do anything to sucker people in one last time for the money

Please just drop Lightning garbage and give us Noctis.

I think it's a shame that the Lightning saga will ultimately be the one remembered by most gamers, and the dark horse Versus XIII will probably be one of those games that deserved the spotlight, but just never truly got it.

I remember the ad campaign for FFXIII. Square, you'd better get your act together and do something like that for Versus.

liked 13, 13-2 and likely will like this
Reborn  +   1172d ago
Its funny how they can announce new games, and they appear faster than what's outstanding for years (even if different teams are working on it).

But hey, money makes things happen.

I don't like the idea of it being short and they want you to beat it mutipule times.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1172d ago
Im fine with this game happening the quicker it gets done the sooner VersusXIII gets out. Im a fan of XIII and XIII-2. I liked those games need to play this for closure. SE is gonna do what they want so whatever.
betan21  +   1172d ago
It's a rent for me when it come out whenever...
Donnywho  +   1172d ago
I was 24 with a Gameinformer magazine contemplating which FF I would buy first. Would I buy the more traditional FF13 first or would it be Versus which was said to be action oriented, and possibly brutal.
Omnislash  +   1171d ago
Hey look! possibly a milestone for the 3rd place worst final fantasy ever!

In case you dont know, 13 is worst, 13-2 is second worse, I guarantee this is gonna be top 3 in worst final fantasy games ever.

SE quit messing around and give us Versus.
josephayal  +   1171d ago
Would love a FFXIII-3 even more than versus XIII.. wan't

I think lightning is such a boring protagonist and not deserving of 3 games.
KrisButtar  +   1171d ago
final fantasy 13 has the 3rd highest sales out of all of them.
and if you listen to the vgchartz its the 7th of all things final fantasy
i think this game will do well, i already have mine pre-ordered
izumo_lee  +   1171d ago
Although i do not deny that FF13 was a good game it sold well cause of the hype that it had going into a new generation of consoles.

Also the sales of the game was across 2 platforms & 5 million of that 6.71 million was on PS3 alone. If you compare the games that debut on new hardware it is really not that impressive compared to the 10 million for FF 7 (PS1) & the 8 million for FF 10 (PS2).

Will Lightning Returns be a good game, possible but one thing i do know is that it will divide the fanbase just as much as FF13 did.

"Will Lightning Returns be a good game, possible but one thing i do know is that it will divide the fanbase just as much as FF13 did"

ya i dont understand fans sometimes, i am a final fantasy fan. i like all of them some more than others but i do not dislike any of them, i can pick somethings i dislike from all of them but lke i said i liked all of them
shempo  +   1171d ago

y cause it was the FIRST FF on next gen consoles so ppl bought it blindly.....go check the numbers of ff13-2 then talk
bryam1982  +   1171d ago
The sad part of this is that we wont see ff versus till probably sometime 2014 mo way square is releasing 2 mayor ff games on the same year
