Famitsu has conducted an interview with Nomura about the upcoming DKS3713 private event, and managed to get a few new details.
I am satisfied with that. Get it out the door.
could it mean they are trying to get it out this year?
Agreed. Throw everything at the main title (I assume that's the main title between the two), worry about Versus next. We don't need both of them at or around the same time, especially if it means one comes earlier than it normally would have.
I would love to...
Oyashiro-sama ftw. I think this is good, as I'm more excited about XIII than vXIII, not a KH kind of person.
I think 13 will be out for Dec. 2008 and vs. 13 for 2010. The PS3 needs a Square JRPG this year. F%@* it, what I meant to say is "I WANT A JRPG FROM SQUARE THIS YEAR". There much better.
Get er done They don't want to release them too close to each other anyway.
I can wait for Versus, but FFXIII needs to come out. I will be extremely happy if it came out this year.
If Final Fantasy XIII gets finished, this means Kitase COULD Theoritically begin work on the Final Fantasy VII remake, while the versus team returns and works. Skeptically, that could happen. You can tell he's wanted to do one really bad from his recent comments. Expect a Japanese release (possibly world wide, after the president's statement) of Final Fantasy XIII Fall 2009.
I'm glad they're focusing on FFXIII. Put all your efforts on it Square. I can't wait for it.
On one hand: Yay Final Fantasy 13 Sooner! On the other: AN EVEN LONGER WAIT FOR KINGDOM HEARTS 3 BECAUSE ITS DEVELOPED BY THE FINAL FANTASY VERSES TEAM!!! ARGH!!!
Cool, so I guess this means XIII '09 and vs.XIII '10...I can definitely live with that.
Maybe you can but what about people who bought ps3 in 2006 after seeing news about these games on launch?
not bad getting both teams to finish up the main project is good. Hopefully they get some good feedback on the 358/2 game and get it running great ^^
thats kool actually. If the versus team is helping the 13 team get it out as soon as possible, then the 13 team can help the versus team in turn as well. Nice.
its still another delay !
It may "lead" to a delay but considering that Square-Enix never gave a release date for Versus XIII officially then its not really a delay. It's just....a change in production priorities.
when it never had a release date 0.o
To convince themselves. *shrug
People don't tend to show games 4 years before they are released. Also though not specific Square did talk about late 2007 and 2008 for FF13 sometime ago.
Square is not stupid..
you are joking right? This game will shatter sales in Japan. You release an RPG in Japan, and the sales are amazing.
So they're delaying a PS3 exclusive to bring out another one faster? o_O I don't think this happened because Square is worrying about install base...
@ Kewlkat007 I don't think thats true because I'm pretty sure Square knows these games are gonna create that boom in the install-base
right now there are so many factors that are affecting Video game consoles sales, there is no need to rush these games. As far as the Economy goes Sony needs more than just 1 game to magically boom the install-base. Look at the direction Japanese development is going? Not many big franchises left over there that appeal to all. MGS is done. Some Jrpgs have gone multi-platform because of the high cost of development. I really think Square is testing the markets with Last Remnants first. There aren't even much jRPGs for that market this year.. Anyhow I'm just speculating..from what I've seen so far. While some think it's all cut and Dry a jrpg come out Bamm sony sells 5 milllion consoles. We'll see how MGS4 does over there, to see if it pushes pass it's fanbase.
White Knight Chronicles should be enough for the gamers craving an epic RPG experience!
Yeah I really can't wait for that game. People act like WKC is like Alan Wake too...there's in-game footage of WKC and the game looks incredible.
but we don't really know when that's coming either. I had though that E3 wasn't going to be the place the reveal all of the FF stuff. TGS is the place to showcase these games. My only hope, with the game coming out so much later then the launch of the PS3, is that they have a world wide release.
even though i doubt it, if decides to release FF13 comes out in 2008 people will lose their mind! MEGATON! amirite or amirite? I rather it came out in 2009, 2008 is kinda booked and lets give WKS a chance but I do want some damn JRPGS!
Sounds great, focus on FFXIII get it to us Dec. of this year or Jan of Next, then pump out VS. XIII and let us all bask in JRPG glory for a few months.. it's long overdue.
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT. FF13 in Q1 2009?
Released in 2010 its going to be 2009 it depends when they actually got started on the second Final Fantasy XIII.
entire Kingdom hearts team(VersusXIII team) and whole Final fantasy team working on ONE title !! nothin but FINAL FANTASY XIII :D How HUGE it will be ...:P .. thats the best decision they've ever made . I want FFXIII soon :) ..
Sony needs this game quick...It'll sell the console for sure.
Fine with me. Final Fantasy 13 will last me a while, so I don't need Versus too soon.
square this is one decision i can get behind, hopefully (big on the hope) we can be playing ff 13 by christmas. At least get it done before killzone comes out then i'd be happy
My bet is FFXIII comes out holiday 2009, with a Demo coming out in Spring of 2009 with the disc of Last Remnants. Versus would come out Holiday 2010.
@ Isaac why would they release a demo with Last Remnants when they can just release it over the PSN
so they can sell loads of last remnant copies ROFL. Thats what Konami/Kojima Productions did with MGS2, they released on exclusive demo for those who brought ZOne of the enders 1, and that game sold at least 1 million
It makes me wonder how many people the teams comprise of. Metal Gear Solid 4 had over 200 working on it. If Final Fantasy XIII has anything close to these numbers then Final Fantasy fans as well as fans of the genre are in for a real treat.
LOL.... Getaway, 8 days cancelled, Versus on hold, Kz2 moved to 2009, GT5 no idea, afrika not for US/Eu, MGS4 sales pathetic for an only AAA title since launch.FF XIII is so difficult to make on ps3 they have to put multiple teams on it. And u guys are pretty happy about all these news. Are u serious?? WTF do u guys drink or eat? Wake up smell the coffee, next gen started nov 05 with launch of 360, with A AA and titles through out the 3 years of existence.
I can't believe no one took this name and let some xbot retard have it. Oh yeah read the article first dumbass and by the way how do you play all those "AAA" xbox titles when your 360's still on repairs?
MGS4 is selling very well. KZ2 is pushed back because of Resistance 2. Eight days and the Getaway 3 are on hold because resource diversion but rest assured development will continue soon enough. GT5 will be released when its ready that's why they released prologue if you can't wait. Also, did Square Enix complain to you about development problems? I don't think so. They have multiple teams working on it so it can be done faster and FF versus XIII will be out right after. The PS3 has just about as much AAA games coming this year as the 360. But next year and 2010, the 360 won't stand a chance. He who laughs last laughs best. It's just common sense.
@rucky "how do you play all those "AAA" xbox titles when your 360's still on repairs? " Sometimes i play your mom, not triple A but C- @above...forget top 10 i have top 100 but i'm too tired to list them.
"sometimes i play your mom" that really doesnt make sense 0_o
...You need to stop smoking those joints there Kojima impostor.
Dude,it's not XBOX LIVE!GTFO!
That's a good thing that they are putting Versus on hold until XIII is done. Having both come out even a few months apart would eat into each others sales. So to get XIII out faster it would make sense to get the Versus team to help out considering both games are using Crystal Tools the development should go quite a bit faster with 2 teams working on it now. Once XIII is out they can focus on Versus and then just as people are beginning to wonder when the next big thing will hit Versus will be there.
Well now we know FFXIII will be done in our lifetime
i'm happy with that. focus on one title then the other if this gets the production for XIII finished earlier than projected.
ON HOLD PUT STAR OCEAN 4 AND ALL THE OTHERS ON HOLD :@ FFXIII AND FFVXIII NEED TO COME OUT
This isn't bad news at all, they can work and make the game better meanwhile getting it out the door sooner. In turn when FFXIII is done they can all hope Versus in the same way. I just can't wait to see footage on these games
Put on hold Versus just to give a more proper treatment to XIII... That's a good move and also a great plan I'm agree with it.
rumor... XIII... December 2008 Japan, March/April 2009 U.S. rumor...
Thats Music Sweet Music to my Fuqing Ears! Bring FFXIII asap! Encore Square/Enix Encore
as much as or even more than MGS4. I can see the headlines coming already.
