Lightning Returns Isn't The End of Fabula Nova Crystallis

IGN: "There's still hope that both Type-0 and Versus XIII will eventually release."

I have a bad feeling Type-0 may not make its way westwards, well not without issue at least, as for Versus XIII it may be part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis series for now, but I think many fans would like it as far removed from anything Final Fantasy XIII related as possible.

yeah I think it would be best if they changed the versus xiii name. I think this could easily be called final fantasy 15 with its ambition.

You know it wouldn't surprise me, but you want to know what i think they're doing....waiting untill next gen when the nextbox can handle the game so they won't have to strip it of any content and then release it as a multi platform game....AKA, the next FF game...FF15

Nomura said he didn't want to cut anything but I think Square Enix are trying to find a loophole so they can get around Nomura's word to release it on both platforms.

Square Enix have become greedy...they would plan something like this and the FF13 games are just fillers untill next gen

@root, I agree, I've thought that it's been pushed to ps4 for a long time but it makes sense that it would also go 720 aswell now! Spose at least if this happens we wouldn't get a gimped game tho I do hope it stays PlayStation exclusive and is used to give the ps4 a brilliant launch exclusive, probably wishful thinking lol

Square do this:

1. FFversusXIII release
2. FF Type 0 Vita release in the NA/EU
3. FF HD remake and KH2.5D finished
4. Then Kingdom Hearts III

Don't do this:
-Publish COD
-Release 50 iOS titles while abandoning everyone else
-Make another XIII game
-Lie to us over and over again

Could Final Fantasy Versus XIII be renamed FFXV? Yes.
Will it lose it's Fabula Nova Crystallis roots? Not likely.

I also do not understand why anyone hates Fabula Nova Crystallis. It's actually not bad at all then again, none of you have ever played a game in the FNC other than the Lightning Saga--if you know enough Japanese to try Type-0, then I highly recommend it.

People hate it because it's just a bunch of crappy nonsense thats why and if they force it into other FF games then it's going to ruin them aswell because your always going to link it to FF13 the worst FF game out there

"Will it lose it's Fabula Nova Crystallis roots? Not likely."

Why not....they've had plenty of time to change everything.

There's no point in 3rd party games being exclusive anymore, especially with the PS4 and Xbox 1080 being practically the saem console with a different OS.

And in the end it doesn't matter, because both consoles will have it, and if sales are what you care about then the PS4 version will outsell the Xbox 1080 version because of Japan.

If it's being built for the PS4 then there's a good chance it's coming to the Xbox 1080, which uses a near identical CPU and more than likely the same GPU. Only real difference is RAM.

Not possible. Anyone who knows anything about XIII's story knows this just take a look at the trailer for Versus... who do you see? ..Etro she is the godess who everyone looks up to in Noctis's world. XIII's elements will be in Versus's world just with different names do to the fact that times are more modern and is set in XIII's far future.

If they were to take that out they would have to go back and re write the whole story and re do the game.

Its not impossible that they are doing that but.. it would be lame.

of course it won't be! looks like SE has taken a page from Activision's CoD with XIII! I totally called that there will be XIII-3 (although they changed the name to Lightning Returns) and I won't be surprised if they announce XIII-4 for next year!

Hicken1731d ago (Edited 1731d ago )

It's not the end of FNC because Versus and Type-0 are part of it.

Did you even KNOW what Fabula Nova Crystallis was before now?

Edit: after looking over more comments, it's evident how many people just don't know what the hell they're talking about, and are instead jumping on the hate bandwagon. Pathetic.

Gotta have more Lighting!

Root1731d ago

It better be, it's the reason I havent been as ticked off with the new Lightning game. I thought that would conlcuded the Fabula Nova Crystallis series and FF13 Versus would be renamed so it can move away from all that Fabula Nova Crystallis crap.

Seriously they've been working on it so long they have had plenty of time to remove any trace of the Fabula Nova Crystallis mytho.

Type 0 would of done the same if Square had more time but because it was nearly finished when they found out FF13 hadn't done as well as they had hoped, the only thing they could do was give it a name change.

Square, are you fucking braindead?
nobody, NOBODY liked XIII
do you deliberately want people to stop caring about final fantasy? well good job. you're halfway there for sure.
