holy ff13 and vs13 2009 japan? DAMN!

edit: yeah i know, still i can only dream. still, it would be pretty cool if both came out next year, i'm so importing them

The Killer3393d ago (Edited 3393d ago )

beside they lied many times before, last i heard that FF13 will be released this december in japan in E3 so what happened?

and last i heard is that SE will not favour any console and will support them all!! yeah sure(star ocean 4,last ahm(FLOP)remnant,infinite(FLOP s) undiscovery)

Cwalat3393d ago

i believe they will release those games in Europe and US aswell,
before the end of 09.

They've been in development long enough to begin show off gameplay footage and screens, mark my words. Before 09 you will own FF13 and Versus.

Lifendz3393d ago

when your game(s) come out I'll pick them up IF they get good reviews but I'm not hyping or anticipating anything from you [Square]. White Knight is on my RPG wish list.

Bnet3433393d ago

I'm really pulling for Star Ocean The Last Hope. It might just be SE's "Last Hope" on the Xbox 360. In any case, the game looks good. Not as bad and Inf. Undiscovery. or The Last Remnant. FXIII I will get on PS3 for the obvious. A bit skeptical on Kingdom Hearts for DS. The Bahumut game for the DS I'll keep my eye on.

ChanDangle3393d ago

They need to step their game up. I honestly don't see them doing very well outside Japan, not that many big hitters for the main consoles besides a few. Considering how The Last Remnant turned out I'm kind of skeptical.


Gothdom3393d ago

Squaresoft had great games
Enix had great games
Square-Enix effin suck. I don't know what went wrong in the merger, but it destroyed but companies.

I stopped caring about FF after the crapfest of FFXII. Now, maybe they'll have a 2010 line-up too, but if they keep doing average crap, I don't think they'll have a 2011 line-up.

(Unless they become MicroSquare-Enix? I thought MS would've bought Tecmo first, but it seems plausible with SE's lack of revenue compared to 2007)

Danja3393d ago

well still wont get to play FF13 next year..which this list really doesn't do much for me...

LoVeRSaMa3393d ago

Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope (Xbox 360)

All I saw there was SE 360 Last Hope.


gaffyh3393d ago

Oh crap Final Fantasy XIII (PS3) and Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3) in 2009. What does that mean? No 360 FF13 til 2010, OMG if that is the case.

Don't trust that they will stick to this release list though

yaboi3393d ago

hate square enix :( :( :( :( :(

TheForgotten0ne3393d ago (Edited 3393d ago )

This is only Japan release, and from what we know FFXIII is only coming on PS3 in Japan.
I guess that the North American one will come out in 2010, and probabaly the PS3 and X360 on the same time.

But FFVSXIII is coming in 2009? Didn't they say that they would release this game at the same time in Japan and NA? I think I remembered that someone stated as much, that it would be the first FF with the same release in both Japan and NA.

I have been looking around, and I guess I was wrong, but can anyone confirm if it will be realeased at the same time in Japan and NA?

airheadluffy3393d ago

i would guess that ffvs13 would be released in NA in 2010. i doubt they can even make the 2009 release date in japan for ffvs13. i hope the game would be similar to kingdom hearts gameplay wise. i dont like rpgs in general, but some Action rpgs catch my attention.

JD_Shadow3393d ago (Edited 3393d ago )

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Unless this is the Japanese release lineup, then that is something that really stuck out for me.

And remember, this is just the 2009 lineup as it stands now. As we've seen before, nothing is etched in stone. This is just what they are planning on coming out with, and they can add or subtract whatever they think needs to be. Saying this because we STILL have no definite proof about SO4 staying 360 exclusive and some 360 fanboys might use that as a weapon against the "SDF" that they think every single PS3 owner is a part of.

eagle213393d ago (Edited 3393d ago )

Final Fantasy XIII (PS3)
Versus XIII (PS3)
Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Blu-ray (PS3)
Kingdom Hearts : Birth by Sleep (PSP)

Thanks Square! 2009 PS3 takeover cONFIRMED. :)

Fallen_Angel3393d ago

gaffyh it means that the US wont be getting FF13 till 2010. Those are release dates for japan

die_fiend3392d ago

Ur insane if you import the final fantasy's if you can't understand japanese. You won't have a clue what's going on, you'll just be staring at a pretty screen. Y not just wait til you can have the story element of the game (which is normally a big part)

why is Last Remnant there for 360?

also, why isn't the 360 XIII on there?

jamesrocks31473393d ago

FF13 is only in development for PS3 they havnt started it for 360 it could be months after the PS3 version even sees FF13 on xbox 360 sometime in 2010 possibly

MegaMohsi3393d ago

I believe these games will only be coming out in Japan in 2009, if I'm not mistaken

kazuma3393d ago

as far as last remnant goes...i don't know
but as for ff13 360, it doesn't have to come out next year.
the japanese version can come out in 2009 and the english version only in 2010 so that explains it

Turntable Jack3393d ago

because that is the japan release. The english version will come 2010 for ps3 and 360

maruchan27six3393d ago

I think the Last Remnant is a typo, should say The Last Remnant (PS3) as that is still in development.

Samwise3393d ago

360 XIII isn't there because it'll most likely be late 09 before ps3 version comes out, then they have to make 360 version.

jamesrocks31473393d ago

they are not going to get much out of it. its exclusive to ps3 in japan, and FF13 verus is PS3 exclusive.

Ps_alm3k3393d ago

That is still a F In good sign...
These are their redemption title.......
