Not exactly a flashy new trailer, screenshots or a release date but any news regarding one of the longest games in development at this point is worth noting.
Well, of course it is still coming
i may get alot of disagress but i think square enix is going to drop balls and is developing it for multiplatform release. it should not take this much time. thanks
Well, they can go ahead and do it, it's not like they could loose any more fans. Haha, I'm sure if they do, they'll be hell raised over in Japan and once Japan stops supporting SE, they're on their way out.
Thing is, there's the infamous tweet by Nomura saying that if Versus does go multiplatform he had no decision in it. Almost as if Nomura came out of a meeting with S-E bosses that was probably discussing multiplatform possibilities. We've heard from Nomura that FFvs13 has had PS3 as lead console and that it's been designed with the PS3 architecture in mind. So I wonder how it would be possible to port it to 360. Unless, all these years in development were specifically so that it can be ported?
definitely buying this game kingdom hearts gameplay style= win for gamers
KH is repetitive though, every 10 meters there's a repeat of the enemy you just fought. So I hope it isn't like it in that aspect, the battle system itself is quite decent especially in BBS. And the Boss battles are top notch really. Versus is just the next phase of a KH battle system with some guns added in.(Nomura actually stated this will help with Kh3) Also to note, expect this to go multiplat or at least don't be surprised if it does, this is S-E 2011. They'd easily sacrifice some quality for profit.
so you saying not every game is repetitive, rpgs are repetitive, fighting games are repetitive shooting games are repetitive even racing; it doesn't mean we don't have fun with them
if it ever comes out.....
At this point any news is good news.
At least we won't have to see people saying vaporware. Did people honestly think SE will cancel Versus.
Well honestly, i'm one of the people that think SE will cancel versus. 6 years in the making and we only had very f*king little info about this game. And the worst thing is SE already registered FF XIII-3 name even before versus out! Man, if 2012 is not the year for versus than i don't think people will care anymore with versus or even SE.
It's not vaporware if they showed us gameplay and quite a few cutscenes. It will come out. It's just that they are taking their dear time. My best guess is a mid-2012 release for Japan and a December 2012 release for West.
Vaporware != Cancel Vaporware- describes a product, typically computer hardware or software, that is announced to the general public but is never actually released nor officially canceled. I think FFvsXIII defines vaporware. *BTW, it's meant as a joke based on the time it has taken come out.
Maybe square enix are saving it to go multiplatform for a new xbox, and itll release on ps3 too.
nope ffvs 13 is ps3 exclusive
then they would have to update the engine and update old code just to make a version for a new console that is %99 guaranteed to sell much less than the PS3 version? Dude, don't ever try to do business I tell you. Don't even... If it goes multi then it'll be for the X360 not next-gen Xbox, unless M$ pays a considerable amount of money to cover the additional expenses of-course (that's the %1 left).
Duke Nukem Forever will probably come out before this...
I have some bad news.
FF XIII-3 will come out before this game gets finished
SE needs to do the following things before FFXIII-3 comes out and that's: Release FFXIIIVs Develop KH3 Remake FFVII and last but not the least freaking fire Wada!
As long as Versus comes out next year I don't care how many XIII sequals they waste time on. FFvXIII is all I want from Square Enix.
Agreed, also make a HD remake of X, X-2 & XII.
Please fire Wada first. Thank you.
You know, one would think the offices of sqenix are littered with sharp edged coffee tables and banana peels everywhere with all the bonus moves in the last ten years.
i honestly thinks that the reason ffvs13 hasn't released yet is because SE wants to release it on both consoles and they are working on 360 version too. SE just see one thing and that is money, not quality.
Agreed. This is SE we're talking about, a japanese activision. I will surprise if in E3 2012 we're not hearing versus goin multiplat.
360 Version PLZ
you know what is sad? this was announced on the start of the gen, and we are on the verge of the new gen, and the game hasn't yet been released... it's impossible for this to live up to it's hype...
This game is now at the very top of my wish list.
how many years has square enix tease me... i can't take it anymore rawr!
Well, i just pray & hope that versus will be moreeee better than FF 13. If not...well, i don't know how SE will calm down the rage of people who's waiting it for 6 years! xD
For starters, only if you are into the whole action-rpg thing. As for me, I see it as a non-canonical game with the Final Fantasy title in it (you know, for the sales and all). If the good old combat system isn't there it simply won't cut it for me.
The picture for the article shows how I was feeling as I read the headline.... *sigh* I'd say that I'm looking forward to it(which I am) but quite frankly I'm tired of saying it. Or should I say I'm tired of HAVING to say it.
I said it before and I'll say it again. Fire Wada first and we'll definitely see the release of FFvsXIII.
