New details regarding PS3-exclusive, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, more information on Noctis, gameplay elements and more.
hmmm...is it possible that Noctis and Stella are meant to be wed, and they are from different countries? I don't see why Noctis would fight his own people, but the trailer definitely looks like that will happen.
The King always have to kick his own people asses now and then to keep them in check. You know, be a dictator about it (Pun intended). Otherwise, they'll be turn into a puppet or lose the throne. Succession is also a mess with a monarchy. The eldest son may not be good enough, but he have the right to the throne. The other more capable brothers can be pissed off and may try to usurp the throne. Or vise versa, the eldest will not be pleased when father says "You will not be king." The military generals and aristocrats can take advantage of civil war within the royal class and further complicate things by eliminating the royal family all together. I like this complicated story already.
Haven't you watched any kung fu films, the master always kicks the disciples arse to make him learn. No difference here lol.
the combat is what interests in about versus its all real time hack/slash. can't waite to play this we still don't have a relapse date do we?
I think you mean "release date", relapse is when put something up your butt
Yeah, he probably meant release but that really isn't what relapse means. Means to get worse. Or maybe fall back into a bad habit.
"relapse is when put something up your butt " What school did you go to?
hahaha i had to give him an agree because i dont know if he was being serious or just random lol
i meant to say release date also i gave everyone a agree
Well Ironfist, Stella is from a dif kingdom, apparently her kingdom just invaded Nocts kingdom for the crystal. They were at peace talks or something, also I think guns are illegal(interview years ago) in Nocts kingdom(which means the blondie guy is carrying it illegally). Stellas soldiers use guns. Also this article has no new info, he's just interpreting the trailer.
''Final Fantasy Versus XIII is expected to release at some point in 2011, but there is no confirmed release date yet.'' http://lh3.ggpht.com/_JtWk7...
Because they rack a disciprine!
sorry guys, I just feel I need to say that! I'm at the point where I don't really care anymore! if FFXIII-2 comes out 1st, which is very likely....bah...I do't have things to say anymore but SCREW YOU SE! I say this because this make waiting for KH3 kinda pointless!
IDK ... I kind of like a kingdom hearts with out those disney characters, don't you?
my gaming history is not that long and KH was my 1st ever RPG and I love it so much I finished it 7 freaking times! can't say much about the QTE-enabled KH2 but I love the series the way it is! FFvsXIII doesn't look so compelling now as it was 5 years ago. the combat is more Crisis Core than KH to me and I might be in the minority, but I don't like CC!
I hope we get a release date of 2011.
You're not the only one :). I really wish that we get this, this year, rather than FF13-2. Not that I didn't like FF13, but it wasn't as good as I expected. So I hope Vs13 comes out this year and FF13-2 next year.
There's already so many amazing games coming out for PS3 this year, I think 2011 is a bit of a stretch though.
I hope Square takes as long as they need tbh. Their previous rush-jobs have been...well...not so great. I won't mind waiting another year if FFvsXIII ends up being amazing.
^^ I think FFv13's dev time is going on for like 5 years now. Personally I say screw FF13-2. FF13 disappointed me and I don't wanna see FFv13 pushed back because of it.
So FF13-2 is coming out this year?
FFvXIII goes hard! i want it this year
@2.1.4 - Apparently it's winter 2011, dunno if that is true though. All I've heard Square say is "next winter" so that could even be Winter 2012.
Don't count on it, several sources confirmed that the release date that Square Enix announced for Final Fantasy Versus XIII is 2012. Additionally, the developers mentioned that they cannot commit themselves to 2011. So a confirmed year - 2012, but not much more than that. Could be early in the year though. Just use google translate. http://www.playstationblog....
If FFvs13 comes out this year it will probably be in Japan Dec 2011. I very much doubt it's coming out this year in the west.
as much as I want this game there's too many PS3 exclusives for this game to release this year, for the holidays 2011 there's resistance 3, uncharted 3, the last guardian, twisted metal and maybe a couple more they would divide sales numbers even more if this came out, most like we will get this one around october 2012 along with Agent
I'd like that as well, but you know that's not going to happen...
i hope so too.
If ffv13 western version will be released this year when we will have the best gaming year EVER :)
Even if it is only in Japanese I would still be happy. Good thing about speaking Japanese 8)
Tbh I think all of this was obvious from the trailer, even the Japanese one (apart from the info about Noctis trying to overthrow his father as King). Oh and: "New details are leaking out regarding Final Fantasy Versus XIII... -First bit of information is that Noctis, who is the main character, is actually a prince. His father is the king of the country that possesses the world's only crystal. -This was already known" Lol
Already knew that stuff.
I know there was really nothing new here.
People following this game already know this.
yesterday we didn't know anything about the game and thought it was going to release in 2014 and now you're already talking about the game getting released in 2011? lmao
The wait for this game is killing me lol, atleast give us a PC/PS3 benchmark or something to drool at.
No seriously I want to play the freaking game already!!! The wait is killing me.
i completely understand how u feel man,i loved kingdom hearts so i kno im goin love this,besides normura said the success of this game will determine whether or not we get kingdom hearts3,so please........BUY THIS GAME!
no he said kingdom hearts 3 comes when this is over ..... SO NOMURA PLEASE FINISH THIS GAME
I like the concept of using different characters and seeing there background story. I really don't understand why they didn't do this as much since FFVI made this an awesome addition.
This game needs to stay exclusive so we get a larger scaled game & playstation 3 is the ideal console to get the job done nothing personal 360 owners.
I don't have any doubts that this game will be reviewed better than XIII, but honestly people really need to let off of the idea that making the 360 version in any way held the game down. If anything it was the 360 version that suffered, and only because of poor video encoding choice and a questionable resolution. Haters gon' hate but I really did like XIII, and of course I have even more hope for Versus XIII.
Nice. Same shit I read a year and a half ago :)(meant to be sarcastic).
It probably won't happen, but It would be nice if Square did something like the "Guardian Forces" that they did for FF8, for this game.
You mean summons? They're in, I think Nomura said you have to fight them to get them aswell.
Like XII? If so :)
Oh awesome. Thanks for the info!!! :)
So really this isnt any news at all.
maybe noctis fals in ove with stela but they can't wed because their countries are at war or something.
And the new detail is!!!!!!!!!!!! It won't be released this millennium.................... .............
stop hoping or believing it will come out this year...it wont...maybe in December in Japan....but earliest in May U.S. Thanks for reading my comment
You're welcome, but the fact that you thanked me has offended me. Thank you for reading my comment.
That was (not) my intention ;)
Wait I thought it was supposed to be a world-wide simultaneous release?
Release date may be revealed e3 2011 i hope this mini-information was less spoilerly and very intriguing nice article
"brand new information" -.- we knew that for 5 years now dude...
this isnt new news. i already knew all this stuff. i got my hopes up adn then they got crushed
That happens to me every time I visit N4G
Final Fantasy Versus XIII may be my last hope for the Final Fantasy series being fun for me again.Since the last 2 Final Fantasy games haven't appealed to me at all.So I pray that Final Fantasy Versus XIII turns out great.
I hated FF XIII but this looks really good. Have my eye on this for sure.
After some fresh news about Versus i discovered that i just lost interest in this game its sad but i couldn't care less about it :-(
that makes absolutetly no sense at all.which makes me believe u never gave a crap about it so please get out here wit that mess u talkin
@Prettyboy1, Talking to me??? just to let you know im a die hard JRPG and Final Fantasy fan but Square Enix screwed everthing for how long ppl have been waiting for Versus news??? only now they realized that nothing's left for them to hype and they started to give info about Versus FFXIII was crap for me and they didn't produce a decent RPG since FF X and sou many things happened sou many games and i just lost interest in Versus i will still buy the game for sure but i lost the enthusiasm just it... And i still think they will make it multiplatform and if they do that i will just not buy cause im tired if crap JRPGs...
Fascinating. I am so stoked for this game!
Let's all be grateful of Square Enix for so generously providing us with so much information on a game that will surely be delayed 8 times before it's release in 2015!
Can't wait sounds interesting switching through characters
Why don't they just call it Final Fantasy XV? What is the relation to XIII?
So anyone else think the whole idea of Noctis and Stella being a Prince and Princess kinda feels like Romeo and Juliet? Anyways. I was seriously gonna give up hope on this game but now I know what that Japanese trailer was about and I actually love the concept of two Kingdoms at war and the heir to the throne (Noctis) is having issues with his own Fam. Personally, I can already see that Noctis and Stella are in love.
