ffvs 13 and kingdom hearts 3 for the ps3

Gamer19821963d ago

or how about ffx hd? They keep holding it back aswell as ffx13 versus for yet another ff13 sequel nobody asked for.

Exactly, how hard can it be to port a PS2 game in HD. Squeenix will have us waiting years for it along with FFVSXIII and KH3 on top of the many years all ready gone by. I'm even doubting that they exist.
Squeenix just can't make good games anymore.
An when there is an exception (FF type zero) they don't even bother to release it to the west.
Screw Squeenix I'll be playing Ni No Kuni instead.

Square enix is so stubborn... they are not even trying. It's a shame, I really love their franchises.

You make it sound like all you have to do is open up ps2 game in the ps3 game engine and it should be ported. Its harder than u think. The game code has to be almost completely redone to work with the ps3. And lot of the textures have to be redone in hd. Theres also the testing phase to make sure there is not much bugs. And whats funny it hasn't even been close to a year since it was announced. It was announced last September I beleive.

HarryMasonHerpderp1963d ago (Edited 1963d ago )


I'm well aware of the process and we have had the entire God Of War series and Metal Gear Solid series updated to HD on time.
An while FFX HD might not of been announced that long ago, where is the info? where are the details? same with any of Squeenix's games, where is ANY amount of info that isn't a damn FFXIII sequel? there isn't any and it's a complete joke. I was 18 years old when Final Fantasy VS XIII was announced....I'm 24 now and I've been waiting for a proper FF since the PS2.
Same for Kingdom Hearts 3 the fans have waited long enough for these games and still there is nothing. You know why? because the company has turned into a complete joke and the only thing that's keeping them from going under are third party developers and a lot of false promises.

I'm just so mad with this company! lol
What the heck do they do all day in there offices?

There's no way ffvs 13 releasing this year lol keep wishing:(

Summons751963d ago

Maybe yearly next year though. It's been in development for 3 years now so they are probably fine tuning it now. Lightning returns is the final part of lightings saga and she is guiding souls to the new world that will be created when theirs ends. My guess is v13 is tht new world.

porkChop1963d ago

3 years? The games has been in development for more than 6 years. Pretty much since the beginning of this entire console generation. The developers keep getting pulled off the project to work on FF XIII, XIII-2, and now Lightning Returns. Square Enix has a HUGE amount of employees, but they always spread themselves way too thin working on a billion projects at the same time. And they prioritize all the wrong ones. They've got some of the worst management in the entire industry.

Summons751963d ago (Edited 1963d ago )

No it was announced more than 6 years years ago. Development didn't start until 2009 and it went full into production yearly last year with them more than half way done. V13 isn't as hush hush as most raging fanboys believe, if you do the research you will find a lot of info about it. Plot summery, gameplay details, character information.

Your right square does spread themselves out a lot, but its quiet obvious ff 13, 13-2 and lightning returns were all planned out from the start. However there is a lot of info on v13 to know its very much alive. I've barely seen anything on ffx HD since they annunced it and confirmed its a remaster not a remake. That's the game people need to worry about. Kingdom hearts 3 has been said multiple times that it won't be started until after V13

N4GDgAPc1963d ago


Thank you. Someone with there facts straight. The CG trailer shown 6 years ago was pretty much the only thing they done with the game. And when FF13 was announced it was already kind of in development. It was a ps2 title at first. I don't remember if it was worked on for 2 years already or 1 year after they scraped it and started over to make it on ps3.

No it was announced more than 6 years years ago. Development didn't start until 2009 and it went full into production""

So,Do you believe in unicorns too????? Anyway,I still have never understood the hype for this game. We really know nothing about it..

TheBatman_Fanatic1963d ago

Three years LOL!
Where have you been?

Irishguy951962d ago (Edited 1962d ago )

Ritsuko. We know loads about it. We know the same amount that we know about GTA5.

Story elements(King assassinated, Noct gains new powers, raiders try to take crystal, the Death god is a big part of it, Nocts kingdom is the most advanced tech wise but not weapon wise)

characters(and their attitudes)

gameplay(world map, vehicles, airships, chocobos, a mobile phone/camera, exploration/caves/summons). Combat(Kh sword combat, with controllable summons, multiple usable characters on the fly,customizable weapons, Third person shooter elements, combat vehicles like tanks)

Music, yoko Shimumura - nuff said

The voice recording started over 2 years ago

This trailer is 2 years old and was outdated by 3 months when it was released.

As for versus next gen, don't be stupid. There's no way S-E is gonna ditch what they've been working on considering it is almost finished.

Its a ps4 launch title :p lol

wishingW3L1963d ago

don't joke about that I think it's true! Maybe not for launch because of the small fanbase but I can see it being released on PS4 and even going multiplat since by then every console will have high-capacity discs just like the PS3.

The one I think it will be a PS4 launch tittle is The Last Guardian.

Yangus1963d ago

Versus next-gen, its 100%.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi1963d ago

I actually wouldn't mind that seeing as how next gen is this year anyway. But regardless I think it could release in Japan late this year.

maximus19851963d ago

dont hold your breath, weve all been saying this for the last couple of years now

animegamingnerd1963d ago

i think square will get a lot of backlash cause of it because people bought a PS3 for both versus 13 and kingdom hearts 3 and also sony did say they are supporting the PS3 until 2015 and just like the PS2 we will most likely still some great games maybe even ones that are better then the PS4 launch titles

j-blaze1963d ago

next gen = new console and small install base = no profit for SE

the game WILL release this gen, late 2013 or early 2014

majiebeast1963d ago (Edited 1963d ago )

Type 0 and FFX HD before Bravery default. Type 0 is just being held hostage at this point so we buy the crappy Lightning Waifu returns.

DEATHxTHExKIDx1963d ago

I could see Versus as a winter 2013 release. There's no reason to push it to next gen Ps3 is being supported til 2015. Switching dveleopment for a PS3 title to a PS4 game dosent make sense.

KH1.5 remix I hope comes to America. Hopefully a summer release.

Its more that SE shouldn't have announced things that weren't near completion FFX HD, VersusXIII. Not only that they flopped FFXIV and had to build it from the ground up to make it worth something which is also taking up resources.
