It seems that some characters from Final Fantasy XIII may also be appearing in Final Fantasy Versus XIII, suggesting that these two games are more closely related to each other than we all thought.
Is that good news?
I'd say good personally, because it means that Versus XIII is definitely canon rather than spinoff, which is what Square has been saying for a while, but no one believes them because they lie often.
Versus is canon regardless of whether FF13 characters appear in it or not. All 3 FF 13 titles are meant to be individual titles that share a common mythos: FF13 is as canon as FFVersus13. FFVersus13 could have just been FF14 etc but like I said, it shares similarities in its mythos so they grouped the games together. Its similar to the FF titles that relate to the world of Ivalice.
I hope to god it has a long engaging story with a large world, many towns, and good gameplay mechanics. And vanilles voice actress better not return. That voice was annoying.
LOL this guy whoever wrote this article is a dumbass. Just because a voice actor is returning DOES NOT mean he's doing the same character. Voice actors (especially in the game world) are very good at doing different voices for multiple characters. And game companies, especially Japanese ones, tend to use voice actors more than once for several different characters (if that particularly actor has more than one voice he can do). I wouldn't count on IMDB, they are most likely just making an error. Nomura has said several times that the universes are not related.
@gaffyh FFvs13 is Cannon, it's SE Way to Make Games with their "polymorphic content" strategy, meaning they make as much of Games they can to Cover any kind of Console without being Spin-off and such
Maybe they could write characters that are even a little mature this time around, not the over the top, childish, cheesy crap they wrote for XIII. I felt like I was listening to an episode of Pokemon or something.
They are not set in the same universe, the game's only share the crystal concept.
did you play FFXIII? Knowing what I know from it about these two characters, especially Cid (there's always a Cid in FF games), it could be interesting. If I see Vanille though, then I will dump the disembodied heads of the developers into the Pacific out of the cargo hold of a fvkng Lockheed C-5 and make a lot of hungry Great Whites VERY HAPPY!!
Yeah, I hope to God Vanille isn't in it. She was the most annoying character in FF13, Cid was actually cool though. I wish he was more involved in the story in FF13, rather than just being there a few times to fight.
I want Vanille, Sazh, Fang,or Lightening in it, i hated Hope,and Snow the most, those two were annoying as hell, skipped cut-scenes when Hope started talking. Lol, Vanille, and Sazh are my Favorites.
Actually Vanille was kind of hot. Make her more adult, less irritating and we're golden.
@hay - Yeah I wouldn't mind that but her English voice-acting was annoying, too high-pitched imo.
I hate every single character except Sazh but yeah i hate that pussy Hope and the false hero Snow the most.
@gaffyh: That's why I wrote "less irritating".
OMG, im staying away from this title. The only reason why I even remember their names is because they were named after elements. I hope for their sake it isn't true.
I wonder how they'd make 'em fit on DVD9 when they port it to Xbox 360
I would cry if that happened. Not because of joy but because i had high hopes of Versus and if they bring back the terrible;e characters from XIII i will be disappointed. I'm telling you, if Vanile is on this... if she is...
They are from two different worlds. Why would their worlds connect? If true though, it could mean that Versus is a fighting type of game similar to Dissidia!
this was brought up a while ago on the finalfantasyxiii.net forums and it was confirmed that it's just imdb.com making an error. mind you i could be wrong this was almost a year ago this occured but just letting you guys know not to get too excited cause it could just be an imdb error
Ok this is BS. If you've been following the very little news of this game. Versus has absolutly nothing to do with Xiii. Differant universe , differant powers, differant style, differant world. Everything is differant and the games have no link other than there will be some sort of Fal'cie in both. And guess what that means, it's Not a spinoff, it's a whole new game completely. Anyway. I really need to know if anyone remembers the name of a game for either Ps1 or Snes. It was an Rts with red and blue robots and you had to capture segments of the map which delievered units to you every minute of so/. Please I need to know it EDit - it also had some badass Sargeant robot guy shouting at you if you lost haha Edit 2-----that also means in versus' world, lightning from Xiii does not exist. Or anything that happened in Xiii doesn't exist/ Think of it as Final Fantasy 7 to Final Fantasy 10. Nothing in common
Found the game :D It was Z or Zed
" According to Square Enix, they all take place in the same world but in different time periods and there is no cooperation between the teams of the various titles, the only connection being a "vague crystal theme". Straight from SE. It also called the "Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy XIII series" Had to find something to defend you with. LOL
I remember them saying it was in the same universes. Then a few months ago they just said there is no connection besides the crystal mythos(Fal'cie and L'cie) in 13 and they should be in versus aswell due to the leaked images but they might not be the same as Xiii's ones( as in the giant ones) Imo a Fal'cie will be the shinigami and L'cie will be Noctis and maybe Stella. They apperently recieve abnormal powers in versus from a near death experiance. Quite unlike FFXIII. If they were in the same world the powers should be the same way given and the same type of powers(Spells and summons) not levitating Swords and teleportation , Just a bit more proof.
I think I recall the developers saying the games of Fabula Nova Crystalis take place in the same universe but as far as being connected through the story then no. However some screens that have been released show some sort of portal that could maybe connect the different worlds?
I don't want characters from the shitty FF13 to be in a game that could possibly be good. If it's true then I won't even bother playing it as im sure they'll "add" more stuff like walking down a hallway for 40 hours.
nah this isn't true considering its a completely different style of game the most I can see is references to them as this game will be set long after FFXIII timeline wise.
Bring Light snow and hope back.
that right there is my main squad in ff13 they do pack a punch together light: all round balanced gd com, rav and med snow: his life pool is massive i had it at 11000 at the end of the game hope: great rav, and gd med and an awesome syn.
hope to god no personally. Lightning being the only exception or Sazh, other than that please NO. Keep it original.
Just wanna add on that there was a reason Nomura created this, it was to be the opposite of what FFXIII was. So putting FFXIII characters in there is just BS nonsense.
That's true. VS was going to be the main FF game but Square found it to be too distant from the traditional FF formula because it was too "dark" and "mature". This is from wikipedia so don't blame me if Square say something different later.
another reason why it will be on xbox... i dont like it but thats how its looking..
two completely different worlds. Not happening. Far as having voice actors return to voice new characters is nothing new.
Lightning is probably one of the most badass ff characters of all time seriously. She reminds me a fusion of cloud and also vincent vallentine. Except a hot female version. At first i did not like hope but he was cool and a very useful character indeed. But my top 3 was def hope light and fang.
Mine was Fang, Light, and Vanille in the end. Her higher HP made her a better healing option than Hope for the post game (the final mark, Long Gui).
But if she comes back then Vanille might too. Sort of like a packaged deal as it would seem from the ending of XIII.
"suggests that at least two of the Englsh voice actors from Final Fantasy XIII will also be recording voices for Versus XIII." wow..port ff versus for 360 confirmed? anyway i expect a subsequent announcement E3.
By your logic voice actors have to stay on one or multiple platforms. It could happen, I doubt it since this isn't a official source but just IMDB.
In FFXIII there are some of the worst characters in the series IMHO. One of the things I hate mainly in FFXIII is just the roster!
Everyone looks generic except Lightning, cid, and the nara crew not including the snow. Now FFversus on the other hand, everyone looks cool.
Hell no! I want my emo looking characters not some pinkish girly bs
Wow now if anybody likes ff13 you idiots throw disagrees out there LMFAO. Yes because i dont wanna join you fools with your ff13 hate god n4g is hilarious.
They disagreed simply because they dont agree with you. How many FFs did you play btw? I played 1-13, all Tactics games, but havent played any Crystal Chronicles and I can honestly say FF13 is definitely one of the most inferior FFs in the series.
13 > 9, imo. The age factor in 9 killed it for me. A romance between two people in their mid teens was, perverse, to say the least. I didn't really care for the mechanics in 9 either. Worst FF made with 12 only being slightly better.
It's popular to hate on what can I say I enjoyed 13 but really 5 years and that's all I can do in this game. Battle system is hot but as a whole you could tell this game wasn't worked on for 5 years almost every area looked like wallpaper in the background for me it was good but from playing massive areas from xii to xiii really bizzare.
PLEASE LIGHTNING IS MY FAV CHARACTER EVER!!! Oh and PLEASE NOT VANILLE!! But this is probably BS they are ind ifferent planets
i hate vanille she just so bloody stupid... and her girly crap is WAY TOOO MUCH..
Bring back Cid, Lightning and Fang
Can't wait to play this game...... ON MY 360!!!!!!!!!! BAM!!!! lol
Oo god no leave ffviii alone all the characters in that game all of them look awesome
This could be true because Vanille and Fang were trapped in the crystal for (I believe) several hundreds of years ago from when people used to live on Pulse until Fang went on a rampage with Ragnarok powers to fulfil her focus. And then when Sahz and Vanille were in Golden Saucer v-1.5 (Nautilus?) there was a presentation about how Pulse was saved from total destruction and when Vanille was watching it she was like really scared of remembering. Then you see this pic and wonder: http://finalfantasyversusxi... Maybe Fang's tribe was close or in the same to Noctis time? Even to these days in real life there are tribes and when they showed the home of Vanille it looked pretty advanced like real life modern days just like in VS but nowhere near to Cacoons technology.
Dude THEY ARE ON DIFFERENT PLANETS This is impossible.
While I personally doubt it there could be spaceships. Remember you go in a ship to cocoon in a late part of the game, if they can make such trips to moons easily planets shouldn't be too far off.
If FFXIII characters DO return in the game then it's guaranteed multiplat! This game was supposed to share "mythos" just on a different universe. -End statement
There is a connection of some kind. There is an area on Pulse called Vallis Media. It is near the campsite on Pulse. In the Versus XIII trailer with Noctis in the car if you look at the signs one says Vallis Acerba. http://www.gametrailers.com... It is 19 seconds in.
Again this means nothing because Vallis is a common name for a Valley possibly
Maybe I should have said possible connection. There was a big difference in the Cocoon culture and Pulse culture including a different written language. If this is 1000 years in the future or in the past place names will change very little. I feel it will involve the Maker in any case.
5 DVD9. 540P.oh yeah.
If it were indubitably true. And yes, they'd have to bring the whole "maker" thing into it. That was barely even touched upon in XIII. Oh yeah and that whole "Lindzei" thing, but I think that was specifically to do with Pulse and was was just for contextualization... Who knows. I'd still love to see some familiar faces in Versus.
Not going to happen. Different universe, story and characters.
if this is true versus has already been gimped to display any FF XIII characters, FFF XIII-2 is born
Well I'm sure they might use some of the character models, just with a different look.
Bring back Fang - that's all I care about...
