Square Enix has finally revealed the names of the Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII characters. Nomchan (or "Pigtails girl") is called Sarah or Senon, the prince from Versus XIII is called Noctis and the heroine is Stella.
Garbage,bring on WKC
Those names are very Western. I wonder why they choose to go down that road of names?
If you haven't noticed, SE is really trying to Woo the western gamers. Which includes getting on their knees and pleasing Microsoft.
if they wanted Western, the prince should be named: Bob the pigtail girl: Annie the heroine: Bertha
where the hell u been?
"I get down on my knees, pleasing Jesus I feel his salvation all over my face" -I know, I'm sorry, but that thought just jumped at me and I felt compelled to post it.
@Phantasy Star... You sick! haha, but that was funny though! Bubble!
Noctis I dig it... Latin meaning "of the night" I like how they are continuing with the dark theme of the game with the name.
That Stella definitely doesn't sit right with me at all. :( After names like Yuna and Rinoa and Aeris......Stella? :/ Noctis is cool though.
LMFAO you have a valid point.
Actually, this has a meaning. They are choosing names that mean something in other language. Like "Versus". Stella is "Star". Noctis (not as the article say) is "Night" ("of the night" or "nocturnal" would be Nocturnus). This mislead come from the Flight Simulator called Noctis. Sarah in Latin (CasSarah) mean "what will be", in Hebrew mean "princess". Expect more names on this way.
The names aren't that great after the names from past games! But seriously..."STELLA!" ; Is there anyone on this planet that still has that name?
STEELLLAAAAAAAAAAAA!STELLLLLAA AAAAA! I NEEEEEED YOU!
'Twas waiting for a west side story remark.
cool but i would like to see new gameplay video soon
I hope the game is not gimped because of x360 anyway looking forward to WKS
Waiting for the 360 version of Versus to be announced. Or the 360 version of FFXIII announced in Japan. Square-Enix and Microsoft are butt buddies now. Just waiting for the announcements.
They're more like a prostitute. Microsoft pays for their services...
The guy who is behind Versus is a bigger Playstation fanboy than I am and that's saying a lot. TGSI
Yup. However history tends to repeat itself in one form or another. Back in the early 1900s when Japan was first introduced to western culture. The emperor wanted to adopt the western ways so that the country may prosper. This seems to be the case with SE. Except, now with Microsoft being that western influence. And it doesn't take a genius to know that MS is one of the richest companies in the world. So partnering with them over Sony who "refuses" or "can't" pay extra, is like a Win/Win for them. They just go where the money is.
im soooo agree with u there sarcasm
so is ff13 on xbox360 going to use the unreal engine 3?
No its going to use the Square Enix Crystal Tools
Noctis sounds so hot. :D
wow, i cant believe im cliking on a FF story.. thanks MS!!
Stella? Noctis? Wow...does every name have to have a hidden meaning? There's a difference between "being deep" and "pretending" - Don't make the story complicated if the circumstances don't ask for it. Just becuase Versus XIII is a dark game, we need dark names. Next thing you know it, FFXII will have some hidden meaning with the bible, planets, Greek Mythology, and Norse Mythology. Oh boy.... I hate developers that try to make things more complicated than it is just to achieve that "epic game" status. Ugh, total turnoff. What ever happened to games like FFVII where names like Cloud and Barret meant nothing? Cloud is a guy with spiky hair, Barret is a stereotypical black guy. Cloud doesn't suddenly mean "One-winged angel killer" in a place far, far away nor did the developers of of Squaresoft name Barret, in future hoping the Barrett .50 cal M82 would be made. Just for that, I'm going to decree my name "FantasyStar" is a hidden derivative in Fantasy Football. See? My name has a dumb, predictable backstory too! Therefore I'm awesome~!
once i read the name stella i started thinking of gundam seed Noctis you protect stalla XD
Are those names Xbox 360 Exclusive.. Damn you SE. What the hell went wrong with them?!
