tri-Ace helped develop Final Fantasy XIII-2

Gematsu: "tri-Ace, developer of the Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile franchises, aided Square Enix in development on Final Fantasy XIII-2." (Final Fantasy XIII-2, PS3, tri-Ace, Xbox 360)

That is great news, looking very forward to the game. Just one more month.
Maybe their training themselves to make Resonance of Fate 2 a better game.

Resonance of Fate, good game, not as hard as the media made it out to be though lol.
WildArmed  +   936d ago
Agreed, the combat was really fun. The story wasn't as interesting/paced out as I'd hope thou.

Loved RoF <3
LordMe  +   936d ago
RoF is one of my favorite games this gen! (As you can tell)
Pozzle  +   936d ago
I agree. I thought reviews were far too hard on it, despite it being a solid game with great characters. (I can't help but think Resonance of Fate would have gotten better reviews and more attention if it was called "Final Fantasy".) RoF was a genuinely good RPG.

By learning from someone who made a worse game? This doesn't make sense...

Resonance of Fate is, along with Valkyria Chronicles, one of the best SRPGs this gen btw. So tri-Ace's contribution can only make XIII-2 much better than XIII.
ZombieAssassin  +   936d ago
Valkyrie Profile not Chronicles, that's SEGA's game I think...good game though.
Disccordia  +   936d ago
I think he was just stating that chronicles was a good game along with RoF

Maybe you should induct them permanently SE. You seem to need all the help you can get, outside of Nomura's team that is.
iamtehpwn  +   936d ago
With Nomura's team taking 6 years on Versus XIII, I'd argue they need quite a bit of help if anyone does. lol.
adorie  +   936d ago
and with FFXIII's team needing help from Nomuras team at one time, that leaves me to question the validity of your argument.
iamtehpwn  +   936d ago
"and with FFXIII's team needing help from Nomuras team at one time, that leaves me to question the validity of your argument. "

Yes, and other than that, Nomura's team hasn't put out a single game in years. Even the recent Kingdom Hearts Game haven't been done by Nomura's team, they're developed by other teams despite Nomura designing them. That's the validity of my argument.

Only cuz they kepts taking all of Versus's staff to help the other games along. Versus prob had 5 people working on it at any given time of FFXIII's actual development due to it being so far behind schedule. Thank god they are finally done with all the others so they can concentrate on the best sounding one out of the entire lot :/
D3mons0ul  +   936d ago
It JUST went into full production, they haven't been working on it for the full 6 years. They announced it much earlier than they should have.
Disccordia  +   936d ago
While its true that it's only been in FULL production for a year they've still had trailers out for years and they were pretty decent. The gameplay trailer from a year ago even looked quite polished so obviously a number of people have been workingon it all this time.
DonaldBeck  +   936d ago
i hope it turns out good.
_Aarix_  +   936d ago
Yea im looking forward to play this on my xbox 360.
chadwarden  +   936d ago
Lol I bet all the people that disagreed with you did so because you said "on my xbox 360"
Hicken  +   936d ago
Mostly because it was completely unnecessary. I didn't agree OR disagree, but adding that little bit was silly, and attempt at fanning flames that, so far, haven't spread. I hope your attempt fails.
_Aarix_  +   936d ago

All i said was i was looking forward to getting this game on my 360 if you make something more out if that very vague statement then thats your damn fault not mine.

hmm thats strange, i wonder how much they did
Tanir  +   936d ago
They need to get their butts to work on Valkyrie Profile 3, I want my HD Lenneth!
Megaman_nerd  +   936d ago
now that you bring that up, Resonance of Fate and Valkyrie Profile are really similar. Like way too similar.... But VP has better art direction.
Da One  +   936d ago
...eh....well thats awkward
iWishTifaWasReal  +   936d ago
i would rather get Resonance of Fate 2 than FFXIII-2
-Gespenst-  +   936d ago
Hmmm, interesting. I don't think many will agree with me, but I've played a couple of Tri-Ace games: Valkyrie Profile 1 & 2, and Star Ocean The Second Story, and also Tales of Phantasia on the SNES which was made by some Tri-ace dudes, and I really get the impression they try too hard, and make sort of mediocre games. Games that want to be Final Fantasy so bad.
RBLAZE1988  +   936d ago
Star ocean the second story is probably one of the best rpgs ever.
Hicken  +   936d ago
How do you "try too hard" when you make games as memorable as VP and the Star Ocean franchise? As unique as both series are, and as far removed as they are from anything else I've ever played (which is about 50 JRPGs), and as little as they have in common with the FF series, I can't see your opinion holding any water at all.

If you didn't like the games, or thought they were average, that's fine. That's completely up to you. But if you think they "try too hard" to make games that many of us think are quality, some sort of proof, reasoning, or explanation is needed.
-Gespenst-  +   936d ago
I don't know, in all the aforementioned games I just feel the whole thing is marred by awful dialogue and a plot that feels super derivative and that doesn't really know where it's going or what it wants to say. And i'm not saying this from a modern perspective. I've played loads of classic rpgs that I absolutely love, but Tri-ace games just really irk me the whole time I'm playing them.
Arnagrim  +   936d ago
Valkyrie Profile was amazing, but a lot of their other games are a bit meh.
I feel like XIII-2 is going to be an ocean of mediocrity honestly.
-Gespenst-  +   936d ago
I agree with the first remark, but not with the second. However, because I can't know for sure if XIII-2 is actually going to be really good, you shall receive an agree!
Tuxedo_Mask  +   936d ago
This is a good sign, and another reason to give it a consideration even after what was FFXIII. This may be the first time that a sequel/spin off to a numbered FF game is better than the original game.
The Rock Bottom  +   936d ago
I'm confused here. Sense when did people except this game? I'm all for playing a new Final Fantasy game too. But if the fans keep flip flopping like this, then SE will continue to produce sub-par Final Fantasy titles in the future. Me personally? I don't wanna give them the money for this game, simply because they put Versus on hold for a sequel to a game that wasn't that great of a Final Fantasy game( as a game, it was good)to begin with. Not hating...just confused by the haters doing a 360 with the hate for Final Fantasy XIII.

It's called giving people the benefit of the doubt. It's what sane, rational people do.
Servbot41  +   936d ago
Not even tri-Ace could make me touch this game. Please just let them make Valkyrie Profile 3: Hrist.
Agent_hitman  +   936d ago
Now bring on Valkyrie profile 3 for PS3!!!
