Final Fantasy XIII Gameplay by the End of the Year

FinalFantasy-XIII.net: Gemaga has conducted an interview with compilation developer Tetsuya Nomura. In the interview, he explains some of the information we've seen over the last few weeks and clears up some misconceptions. Here are some of the translated details thanks to Autumn Thread from Neogaf. (Final Fantasy Agito XIII, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XV, PS3, PSP, Xbox 360)

Indeed it does.

Poor Sony
I'm afraid White Knight Chronicles want sell that much due to Japans dislike of ps3.

Poor pp

He doesn't realise there are no 360 games in the top 30 in Japan.

any word on how the US localization of white knight is coming along? i've yet to see a target date for the U.S.
bunbun777  +   2184d ago
Well-
My honest guess is it wont be within 2 weeks of Killzone 2- so 3 weeks out up or down is my guess, lets hope down. Which would be I think either the first or last week of Feb, depending on KZ2.

Final Best Guess:

WKC-1st or 2nd week of FEB
KZ2-3rd or 4th week of FEB

---OOPS--- this is a FF post my bad! Yay FF13-- (but i'm chronologically way more stoked for WKC)

Since White Knight Chronicles is another exclusive Playstation 3 JRPG
It's ability to be another Playstation 3 exclusive AAA JRPG is that much higher

Nodoze  +   2184d ago
What is the target release date for this?
I mean COME ON. I know it is FF, but good god it is taking them FOREVER. I think the entire dev team is comprised of OCD freaks.
aggh im on fire  +   2184d ago
Ive lost interest in FF. The last few i didn't think to be that good and Mass Effect has up the anti in rpgs of this nature, it makes FF seem stuck in the past.
I might be wrong but judging by what ive seen and how long the damn thing is taking i won't hold my breath.
christian hour  +   2183d ago
agreed,
aggh im on fire  +   2184d ago
Well at a recent pole of games shown in Japan more were excited by Last Remnant on xbox than White Knight Story so i guess both consoles will do well. The stories on here somewhere before you ask for links.

The end of the year
Isn't the end of the year it comes out in japan? by that time we can see it on Youtube..
tetsuhana  +   2183d ago
You're thinking of White Knight Chronicles
Kaneda  +   2183d ago
I thought they said
I thought SE said the end of this year for Japan and next year for NA version PS3 and Xbox...
robotnik  +   2183d ago
This better be true.

Why has it taken them this long to show gameplay? They built twelve up so much, then I bought it, and immediately declared final fantasy dead to me forever. They've yet to beat 3(6) although 7 came close... the last good ff was 10. ff11 was a joke of an online game, and since then they've been butchering the series with countless remakes and sequels. (bar ff7:ac, which was kick ass).

What I'm trying to say is, I've lost all or any interest in the series, while I'm watching ff13 and any news referrin to it, I'm not expecting anything good. 12 just killed it for me... took too long to be released, and it was probably the worst story in the history of the series, if final fantasy 13 turns out good, it will only be because anything would be an improvement over 12.

Yay. I'm going to lose bubbles, can't wait. :P
Somnus  +   2183d ago
*gives bubble*
Akiira  +   2180d ago
whats your problem with ff12, it got near perfect scores across the board and as someone that played it all the way through i got to say it was really good, especially the new battle system.

also alot of the sequels they have made have been really good such as tactics a2 for ds and crisis core for psp.

and as for the length of time it takes them to make the games i think thats just you being overly critical. it just takes time to make good games simple as that.
