Before Becoming Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy Versus XIII Was Announced Exactly Nine Years Ago

Exactly nine years ago, at a press conference at E3 2006, Square Enix announced Final Fantasy Versus XIII exclusively for PS3. Then several period of limbo mixed with sporadic appearances followed, and a few new outlets even mistakenly announced its cancellation, citing “sources” that obviously weren’t that well informed, if they ever existed.

Yet, at E3 2013, Square Enix finally announced that the game had been renamed to Final Fantasy XV, and re-purposed for release on PS4 and Xbox One.

I was in 8th grade when this game was announced and it still isn't even out yet.

Abriael1171d ago

I was a tad older, but boy... time flies.

Old mans voice-

I remember when they said FFXV would be 60 cents! Now its 60 smackaroonies...

How am I ever gonna pay for the farm if FFXV costs so much...

I was in the 12th grade... Now I'm 25years old! That's like, 100 years! If ya needed some help you should a justs asked us Nomura! I would have followed through with AP Programming... Now they got that young whippersnapper Tabata. If you need some help too I'll get my cane, drive off the farm and go back to school for coding...

Now where's my chair?

Hate to say this but man, it's good that they delayed it so much. PS3 and xbox 360 definitely wouldn't be able to pull of their target render. Quite frankly the ps4 and xbox 1 probably won't be able to pull it off either.

FamilyGuy1171d ago

That was a CG video, not a "target render". They actually had gameplay videos of the PS3 version back then as well, the quality was similar the FF13 character models. I say gameplay but it's really just the protagonist talking with some important girl, a love interest maybe?

Obviously the current gen versions looks way better than those old clips.

Irishguy951171d ago

Actually there was also a 4-5 minuite gameplay trailer for FF versus. But eh...FFXV looks alot better

pivotplease1171d ago

Graphically. I'm still not sure if the gameplay changes were for the best.

Eiyuuou1170d ago

Only one way to find out!

NoctisPendragon1171d ago (Edited 1171d ago )

You are 100% right , the FF XV as we (will) know it is(would be) impossible to pull off on a ps3 .
For the ps4 it looks like possible .

I am not only talking about the graphics , even technically Ramuh real time summon + open world + all the weather effect and particles are already hard/impossible to pull of on a ps3 and they surly have more to show than that .

Articuno761171d ago

There's a tragic undertone in that whole trailer. Noctis is portrayed coldly, in an almost villain like way. And in stark contrast to FFXV he's a solitary character.

I wonder if, rather than being scrapped, that's indicative of Noctis's character development? And if so, I wonder what dramatic turn of events could have made him that way.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1171d ago

Whole party dies, he succeeds his father's throne but becomes cruel dictator. I wouldn't mind seeing the main character go evil.

NoctisPendragon1171d ago

"Not everyone will return as the one he was before - if he will return at all"

Yeah Noctis will change , maybe all of them .

benji1011171d ago

This game is never coming out.

rainzor1171d ago

This game is never coming out in Wii U because the Wii U is underpowered and last gen. Wii U can't even run this lol.

benji1011171d ago (Edited 1171d ago )

Running nothing is a pretty hard trick to pull.. I heard the ps4 has been running on empty for a year.. that is a miracle. And yet still the fans keep defending the piece of crap.. Just because it is better than an xbox1.. nothing to shout about... Sony bribing EA for exclusive content. instead of making games. What a great console the ps4 is. What a great company sony is. Sony fans wonder why pc and Nintendo fans laugh so hard at the tablet cpu powered brick. I think I will go back to palying xenobladex and Dark souls 2 at a solid 60 fps.

Dafuq was that dribble.

PS4 has many great games released and upcoming. Sony has launched many 1st party games with more to come.

PS4's CPU is not a tablet, it is about the performance of a Core i3 laptop/desktop CPU. The PS4 is far more powerful than a Wii U and most gaming PCs, according to the Steam survey. PS4 has many 60 FPS games.

Your lies do nothing.

wegetsignalx1163d ago (Edited 1163d ago )

Final Fantasy XV is coming out. Stop trolling.

PhoenixUp1171d ago

I always looked more forward to this game coming out than FFXIII just by virtue of the KH dev team working on a realistic action RPG for once
