I like how you can use the environment in battle to your advantage, game's looking great so far.
blitz0623  +   1683d ago
Nice... reminds me of Kingdom Hearts and Crisis Core combined. Graphics are... incredible.

But the truth is everything we see here is similar to what we saw in XIII until the first review came in and talked about linearity. I hope they release sometime in the future a trailer that guarantees this won't be linear and all the stuff that made XIII terrible

Now this looks like a Final Fantasy Game! Bring back the power of Square Soft, Square Enix we know you have some where hidden.

Holy sheit, Finally, some new Footage and gameplay for Versus XIII. If I was there at the event, I would have of clapped the hell out this at the end of the trailer especially since I feel that SE's quality has dropped a lot since it's PS1&2 days. It actually looked like a Final Fantasy game that looked epic and one that I can imagine myself enjoying.

Now where's the release date?

square-soft is left sleeping remnant inside tetsuya nomura, and with this game the beast is awakening from its long slumber!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ff13zero, verus and 13-2 I CANNOT WAIT!

looks good and reminds me a lot of KH! as long as it's not a corridor RPG, I think I'm in. I'll look close into this until release and hope that is will deliver! this year hopefully

I haven't been wowed by the FMV of any FF ever since FF8.
I remembered, playin FF8, half of the fun comes from seeing the incredible FMV.

But, holy sh*t!!! That's some incredible FMV in Versus! It's unlike the FMV in 13. 13 didn't wow me like at all.

Modern day Japan-like city. Badass bosses. Badass characters. Kingdom Heart like gameplay. This is going to be the sh*t.

Nomura later commented, in an interview conducted via Twitter, that players will be able to control an airship around the world map.

The game will feature large open fields which allow players to walk through almost anything on the field apart from the mountains. Nomura has also mentioned that the fields are truly vast and that it was very far to traverse from one end to another;[12] thus, to facilitate easy navigation, the game will feature the return of vehicles such as an airship[13] as well as a car, allowing players to easily traverse the large fields.[12]

Battles will take place in real-time environments using all regions of the field, from up high buildings to down low streets. Nomura said that the game will feature battles that take place in areas with great differences in height, as shown in the trailer, and the players will have to fight using the full environment. This means fighting what's in front, as well as above and below (vertical battles).[14]

One of the trailers show Noctis selecting from a number of different weapons to defeat the enemy soldiers in front of him. The various weapons in the game will have different methods of attack, and some will even be usable as shields to go along with Noctis's crystal power. Weapons will have some sort of customization element as well. The trailer also showed Noctis warping around killing enemies. Nomura explained that players won't be able to warp freely to every spot but will be able to warp to the location where the sword is placed. This is one area that is being tested on so it's a matter of time to see if this all makes it into the final product. Summon beasts are in the game and will have to be defeated to be used. Nomura has also said that the game will have Sixaxis support but has given no specifics about it

So we know there are towns, open map, airships, etc. but does anyone know if there is any info on NPCs to talk to and get side quests from and if there will be store fronts to make purchases in the towns (unlike the save point storefront in 13). Just curious... I haven't heard anything.

Don't you remember the other trailer that came out? That showed Noctis walking around Jumping and then he fought the Behmoth? In Famitsu they had a FAQ with Nomura where he said, "If you can see it, you can walk to it." Not to mention he said their will be a world map with vehicles and airships.

What happened was, Nomrua dropped development as soon as it was slated to be multiplat. It was originally intended to be an open-world game to begin with and since this game is run under him, we can be rest assured all promises on FFXIII should be applied here.

I think they will release it late this year in Japan and summer in the states in 2012 hopefully.

By the way did you see when they arrived at the toll booth? I know its CG but it looked damn like real life. I need this game now.
Myze  +   1683d ago
Obviously it could be out the window now, but they stated a while (long while now) back that the game would get a worldwide release date. Hopefully that will still hold true, and hopefully by the end of this year.

Anyway, glad to see they have been working, because the game looks great in graphics, intensity and size. Also, the gameplay looks to be incredibly varied, which is a nice touch (as long as it all works well).

If this does not tell you that FF13 was dumbed down considerably for the 360....then there is no hope for you.

Games look good though, hopefully we get to see more.

iamtehpwn  +   1683d ago
Look at the scene where Noctis and Stella are talking. This is confirmed Real time as we've seen this trailer before in real time. Compare this to the original trailer.

The original was on par with Final Fantasy XIII. But the graphics now are outstanding. Look at the quality of the skin and hair, and the beautiful Lighting. Miles beyond XIII and the original Versus XIII real time showing. Not to mention, Nomura confirmed, what we're seeing is an older build before major graphics update! This is only possible on PS3.
gam3fr33k  +   1683d ago
seriously? why are they even bothering putting resources into ff13-2? what's worse is 13-2 is coming out this year instead of this...year's still early though, hopefully we get a release date

Versus > FFXIII-2. Versus' gameplay is what Dragon Age should have been. Intense and epic fights with a bit of spellcasting and strategy. Also, it looks like it also plays like DA since you can control your teammates in realtime like that shotgun guy aiming.

We can all agree that Versus is miles better than XIII and XIII-2.

He and his team KH Team have practically been what's keeping the FF brand alive.

Dissidia.....He also pushed square to make the sequal
Dissidia 012 see above
KH series
TWEWY....highest rated game square has created this gen

Nomura/Team KH has constantly gotten pulled away from Versus, one year during a point of FFXIII development, that means one year of no Versus development.

:( Not like SE will pull people away from there other projects to help Team KH with Versus
iamtehpwn  +   1683d ago
@Da one
Nomura is also the one that pushed Versus XIII to stay PS3 exclusive---thank GOD.
PshycoNinja  +   1683d ago
@Da One

That's what pisses me off. Nomura and his team go out of their way and help other teams at square so they can get games out quicker which in turn delays Versus XIII, but the other teams won't help out Nomura and the KH Team cause they are "busy" working on a sequal to one of the worst Final Fantasy's. The XIII team are a bunch of self serving bastards that cant even take time out to help move along Versus XIII development.

Hey Square here's an idea why don't you finish Versus and Type-0(Agito) before anouncing another terrible FFXII game. I think people will be more than happy to wait for XIII-2 while you finish up Versus XIII.
MajestieBeast  +   1683d ago

PshycoNinja  +   1683d ago
When they announced XIII and Versus XIII together I said the same thing. Plus Nomura was working on Versus, the very guy that made one of my favorite series of all time, Kingdom Hearts. When XIII went multi I didnt care because I didnt really want it. I am still suprised that Versus hasn't come out yet. I am way more pumped for this game than anything else in the XIII series.

Don't buy WKC. It's rumored that WKCII would come with the original game in itself.

good. but looks very cut-and-paste thingy. specially the missing dialogues. why can't they just piece together a nice story mode trailer (like the KZ3 one) showing gameplay, if possible, which would have made the trailer look even more epic. urm.. like the previous one.

having said that, i'm obviously getting the game.

EDIT: @Kluv (below): let's hope so. at least should have separated the gameplay and the CG. at least.

The thing is, those uber-epic hollywood style trailers aren't that big in Japan, alot of their trailers are like that, cut and paste with very random sequences. I'm sure when they release the first american official trailer they will make it more streamlined for us.

Fucking brilliant!
infamous-butcher  +   1683d ago
Realy?? Brilliant?? Did I just watch a different video than everyone else? The only thing I seen was a hack n' slash. WTF happened to the battle system. I thought this was ment to be a Final Fantasy game not a DMC game.

I was looking forward to seeing a more traditional FF game but will I have to get that from FF XIII-2? Like FFS SE ever since XIII came out vs-XIII was ment to be the real FF XIII but then you screw it up like you did XIII.
jaosobno  +   1683d ago
"Did I just watch a different video than everyone else?"

Apparently you have. I saw a brilliant, evolved game as most people did.

Battle system was never the thing that made FF games special. What made it special was the very game world, the way it was presented to players, and the (epic) story it told us.

If the only thing you were looking for was more of the same, I suggest you play FFXIII (or as I like to call it Neutered Fantasy XIII.
silvacrest  +   1683d ago
if you still, (and i mean this with emphasis) STILL want turn based combat stick to the game in your avatar and its sequel

versus is an evolution to the traditional RPG combat system that i welcome, turn based combat had its time in the sun, time to move on

the tales series has gone the action route with positive results so again, i welcome this....looks awesome
infamous-butcher  +   1683d ago
"Brilliant evolved game"

**Visually brilliant hack and slash game that resembls nothing of a Final Famtasy game.**

Fixed that for you there.

The battle system was still a part of FF that made it different from the RPG's of the west, But now thats gone. Its just a hack and slash.

BTW XIII was not more of the same in FF. It was a watered down FF game from the get go.

I didnt see a Final Fantasy game, I saw a DMC/Bayoneta/GoW/Castlevania there.
infamous-butcher  +   1683d ago
You seem to think I love XIII. I dont. I havnt changed my avitar since I made an account. Before XIII was revealed to be a watered down FF game.
Yea so what if I want a variation of the turn based battle system or the ATB system. I would rather have that than have a shitty hack and slash battle system.
iMaim  +   1683d ago
I recall they said that the gameplay is more reminiscent to the Kingdom Heart series years ago. It was never meant to play out with an ATB bar or some sort.
Viper7  +   1683d ago
But I like hack and slash games, and this is a spinoff.
After playing trough KH2 I had hoped for a similar game in full Final fantasy setting and... Versus seems to be just that!

KH2 with all those special form and limit breaks where really nice. Too bad KH2 was a bit too easy.

Anyone else get a cinematic vibe from the battles and everything. There's a LOT going on on screen and the transitions from gameplay to cutscenes and from cutscenes to gameplay seems smooth. This! Is the kind of Final Fantasy game I've been expecting of this generation. FFXIII was almost there, but lacked things. Can't wait for this and XIII-2!

Also the graphics are superb. And the game is probably not out until 2012 so a lot of polish can be done between now and then I'm sure. Excitement!

Remember that FF7 PS3 tech demo?
Yeah, I watached it again since the last time I first saw it about 4 years ago. That tech demo was bitter-sweet, because it showed us how a FF7 remake could look like, yet it was just a huge tease which set forth several years of false hope.
