If you are a Final Fantasy fan, you are probably eager to find out if there are any updates for the Square-Enix’ Final Fantasy Versus XIII project, the one game that has the ability to save the franchise from ‘going downhill further’ so to speak.
Honestly, I don't care that much anymore about this game, it's been like what 6 years and there's barely any info on the game. I'm not saying it doesn't look good though, I think it looks fantastic but I'm just sick of waiting and clinging on every news that comes with this game, plus there so many good games out and coming out. When it comes out I'll get it but till then.
After all this time I just feel to jerked around and manipulated. Looks good, will likely pick it up when it comes out, but I refused to get excited for any curbs of news S/E cares to toss out.
But if they show me something new(gameplay footage, story trailer and info) and a release date, then maybe.
Is this game really in development or just another tech demo!?!
there's gameplay and story trailers and lots of info but no release date.
@ Peaceful_Jelly 'there's gameplay and story trailers' Yet you link one video. :P On topic I stopped caring a while ago actually.
If it's multiplat, then no. FFXIII showed me how square enix does multiplats. If its a PS3 exclusive then I will.
The only thing that could get me excited for this game again would be a set in stone release date.
And really sad truth: there's a real possibility that what little has been shown so far after all of this time will barely be remotely close to what's finally released. Look at the original FFXIII trailer. Really look at it. Could become more so if the thing goes multi while being being in exclusive production. That word has just been used so much this gen, that its lost it true meaning.
The hype for this game banished long ago, it's been years and nothing concrete, I don't even think they're a working on it, maybe it'll make a jump to the next gen, who knows but right now, I don't care about it...
i cant say i do anymore.. with so little info but the game has managed to stay in my mind.. it has soo much potential for being the real FF experience that we all want... we will see when its released.. if
I think people still care, it's just now people are at the point of "I'll care when they show something new, or a release date." Being mysterious is often a good way of marketing something, but being a mystery for years is a waste of everyone's time. They should have dropped 13-2, and stuck to making 13vs. My guess is 13-2 was based off of a lot of the content that Square supposedly dropped from the original game, to make a quicker release which is why we're seeing another title so soon. But getting back on topic, most people still care, they're just sick of waiting. Developers really missed out on this opportunity. If Square wants to take forever making what should be the best JRPG this gen, then another developer should have stepped up, and beat them to the punch. Having the go to JRPG this gen would help any developer instantly move to the big leagues since there really isn't a JRPG that defined this gen yet. Lost Odyssey, Demon's Soul's, and Valkyria Chronicles are the best rated original JRPG's this gen, but they're all high 8's.
it will come out when it comes out kinda thing with FFvsXIII. don't care about it anymore but when it comes out, probably in another 5 years (joke of course), I'll check it out just to see what was taking them so long!
There's actually a LOT of info about this game out. PM me asking for what you want, there is alot out...just not alot of vids and a release date. Still though I agree, they're keeping this too much under there info level. Either they are scared to show it because it sucks....or they don't want to overshadow the other games(FFXIII-2) Hopefully the latter
I think it's so ridiculous how Square takes decades on releasing games it's just so frigging annoying. You cannot expect the fans to stay interested with sometimes that's shown once a year or maybe not even at that.
I agree. I stopped caring last year when we didn't get really anything from them. Thats not to say that wont change, but I just don't care anymore. Same goes for Agent. We're already talking about new consoles yet these supposedly HUGE titles aren't even being talked about yet.
This. It's worrying really.
I'm still looking forwards to this game!!! "Director Tetsuya Nomura has stated that Versus XIII's gameplay will be a realistic derivation of Kingdom Hearts's battle system with some elements of a third-person shooter." "Battles will take place in real-time environments using all regions of the field, from the tops of buildings down to street level. 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). The battle interface consists of several aspects, mainly Magic, Item, Summons and EX-ARTS." "The game also uses a real-time event system, allowing players to suddenly be attacked or trigger certain events while walking around. For example, when Noctis reaches a pedestrian bridge, a behemoth beast will attack. Another example is a plane crashing into the road. Implementing these kinds of real time events, which transition seamlessly into the flow of gameplay, takes a long time in terms of development, said Nomura" "Like some of the previous games in the Final Fantasy series the game will feature large open fields in the world map 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; thus, to facilitate easy navigation, the game will feature the return of vehicles such as an airship along with a form of fast travel between specific locations on the world map as well as a car, allowing players to easily traverse the large fields. Players can ride cars, aircraft and Chocobos; they can also steal tanks." "Weapons will have some sort of customization such as elemental attacks 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 but is limited to an attack gauge. 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." This game will be BEAST!!!
Great comment! I too feel the same way and have done the same thing. I am going to wait until Versus XIII comes out to get excited again; I have waited way too long for this game. Square Enix seems to push this game to the side to make other games. For that reason, I won't buy any Square Enix games until Versus XIII comes out. The games that come out by Square Enix right now are not that good anyway so this will be easy. lol
me 2 i was so hyped about this game but they announce this game so long ago and yet we barely have any info on it, like come on they just recently announced xiii-2 and they already have more info on that game than in versus, like how is that possible?
probably this game turned in multplataform ....
For the rest of us ? maybe early well placed advertising could remedy the loss of excitement for us.
Near the release they should announce "Final Fantasy 13 Versus is now a main FF release title...Final Fantasy 15" <JAW HITS GROUND> :) That would certainly give it some attention.
^^^ This It's more to do with a personaly issue though, I don't want to see the last looking chance of a decent Final Fantasy game to be related to that crap named Final Fantasy 13 in anyway. The Fabula Nova Crystallis series crap failed Square. Please move on
How dare you say my name is crap..LOL j/k. But I agree this series has not lived up to the hype SE was spewing out. FFVSXIII needs to be outstanding and from what i'm seeing so far i think it will be.
You say you don't want any more Fabula Nova Crystallis crap yet you say you want Final Fantasy Versus XIII? You realize how stupid that is? Versus XIII's story heavily depends on the Fabula Nova Crystallis Mythology. Also keep in mind, XIII is the only game from the FBC mythos available so far. Wait for Type-0 and Versus at least to judge FBC. In fact, if you rewatch the trailers and pay close attention to Noctis and Stella talking, it would seem they're L'cie of Etro. And that's also why this game can't be rebranded as Final Fantasy XV, though I think it should be.
@iamtehpwn They even said themselfs it follows some things but it's not related in anyway. It dosen't stop them to not make it possible. Oh and I meant the series failed as in all together, they wanted to get these three "amazing" games out one after another.....yet one sucked and the other two havent even came out yet.
A few nice trailers and the odd screen here and there dont really cut it when it's dragged out over 3 years without even so much as a release date. Near release, probably, but right now, more excited for games that are actually coming out.
Yes,really looking forward to this, and from what i have seen so far, i wont be dissapointed.
Yes, I'm still looking forward to this.
Being one of the biggest Dragon Warrior and FF fans ever, I honestly could give two craps how good this game or FF13-2 is. FF14 along with the next iterations of the next FF games are dead on arrival to me. I actually hope Squeenix goes bankrupt and sells its ip's to a publisher that actually gives a crap. Though that will never happen, there is still a little light of hope in my mind that it will.
Well, if Nomura left Square Enix, I don't think they would survive long. What would happen if Nomura went to Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft? Do you think he would give them a greater advantage over the competition (in terms of games/quality)?
i can't wait that trailer they showed back in jan/febuary was more than enough to keep me wanting more i say let them work on it and make it the best they can even if it dose take another year i won't be mad....they could have rushed development and release a horrid game
Really looking forward to it but my hypes not through the roof like it once was. Square Enix have taken the piss in marketing the game with those closed theaters and cryptic famitsu interviews. There better be a blowout at TGS for their sake.
Most milked game ever! FF13 part2? lmao.
I'm certainly still interested. It's definitely not the go-to title it once was when I first picked up my PS3, now 4 years ago.
I believe closer to release the hype will build up, its quite dissapointing though being in developements for 5 years (maybe more) and not even a hint of release
A release date in NA is what it needs to get my attention, until then, I can't say I'm thrilled or excited about it.
this game has been a big ass tease the past few years, but all the amazing games coming out soon really stop me from worrying about it.
I want to know when it's coming out. This game is overdue a release.
Looking forward to it, but the way things work is that as each game nears its release date so do peoples excitement.When deus ex is about to launch we'll see article after article video after video etc... until people are excited, that will continue as each game comes this year like gears3,UC3,skyrim. Eventually when we get to around a month before versus comes out most people, who were over it will suddenly be back in the hype.
I left the wagon 2 or 3 years ago. Multiplat vaporware.
forget this game it will be out in 2013 and it will sux as hell
Nomura is making this game as the Chief of the project, so I have expectations, unlike FF 13. Let's see in this TGS Conference, they can reveal more details.
This will be the new Duke Nukem Forever :(
LOL! That's perfect! The Duke Nukem of JRPGs!
I was excited for this game...back in 2006. Its 2011 now, still no release date, still showing trailers in private boothes. Seriously, Square-Enix has killed this game for me. I don't give a damn about any of Square-Enix's games now, they've really underperformed this gen. I'm not saying I won't get Versus when (if) it comes out, I probably will but I'm not sure if it will be a day 1 purchase. I still have to complete XIII (its a decent game but could have been better) but XIII-2's trailer looked really underwhelming, so I'm not sure if I'll buy that.
I wish this game came out a year ago. I don't think it's taking so many years for reasons of detail and excellence, I think it's because it hasn't been a main priority. I wonder why not - it looks FANTASTIC and I will absolutely buy this still. Wasn't it announced like back when the PS3 came out? I've been looking forward to this game for 5 years.
They will probably reveal that the game is coming in 2012 at TGS, nothing else. Of course, when in 2012 will be completely left out.
Whenever it comes it comes. I just hope it'd be worth buying.
Meh, I'll buy it whenever it comes out but I'm still holding out hope for Kingdom Hearts 3 this gen.
I think we can all agree that KH3 isn't going to happen this gen.
Lol people only say they are not excited because they have been waiting forever for the game, without almost no info or footage. Just let the media blowout and you'll see people like the article author rush back in line.
Problem is, I really want this game but at the same time i really want Kingdom hearts 3. Sadly as Versus is made by the same team to the kingdom Hearts series, we'll be waiting a pretty long time for the 3rd installment, so as a Kigndom hearts fan and Final Fantasy fan, release Versus already and announce Kingdom hearts 3!
actually if im not mistaken,we will only get a kh3 if versus performs well,so if i were u i would deffinitely pick up versus
Atm no. It's not coming out any time soon so it's off my radar. But when it's close to release I'm sure I'll be excited about it.
Connect the dots. Combine the absence of info on FFvsXIII with the rumor of a PS4 release in 2012 and there you have it, FFvsXIII releasing in November 2012 as a launch title for the PS4. That will generate some excitement. Those claiming it has lost PS3 exclusivity are also correct, though not the way they think. Square will be releasing both PS4 and PS3 versions of the title. Remember, you read it here first!
their too busy polishing rocks!
New info was released early in the year with voice acting present, gameplay and the revamped character designs. It's only July...
More like Kingdom Hearts VS XIII... Give me my god damn traditional gameplay.
Thats partly why they didnt want it to be a numbered game, the gameplay and other aspects were too different.
Uhh yea it is. Whenever it starts to fade I go back and listen to Somnus, avery good song, and I watch the mindblowing trailer. It just looks incredible. I believe it will be worth the wait.
they sold their soul to Microsoft lol just like konami and rockstar
this game was the reason i bought a ps3 its still not here lol.
Two pages of comments and going proves that people still care, even if they don't admit it. Once XIII-2 is done they should focus on VersusXIII and have it ready as soon as they can without compromising anything. They should also keep it a PS3 exclusive, after lying about XIII, not releasing The Last Remnant, and basically canning XIV for the PS3 until further notice it's the least they could do.
Until I read this heading, I hadn't realize that I completely forgot about this game. So, for me, no; I have no excitement for this game anymore. I might have at some point, but this is the 3drealms thing. How long are they going to take to release a GOOD game? There's so many other good games coming that this will be mediocre when it comes out.
NO XBOX PORT PLEASE SQUARE ENIX!!!!!!!!
