GamesMaster UK is claiming that Square Enix has something special planned for the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy next year.
yessssss, they cant even finish versus /s
I'm pretty sure FFV13 is going to be a PS4 launch title. If anyone thinks i'm trolling, trust me i'm not. Japanese developers take agessssssss with games. Looks at Yamauchi and Umeda. Hopefully Sony show or announce something this year, i really do.
I doubt it. Too much time has been spent on it to scrap it and transition to a new platform. It will be a transition title, similar to FFXII (which was also in development for a long time). The biggest issue with Versus is that it was announced too early. They didn't start focusing on it until after FFXIII was finished.
Why can't I get Kingdom Hearts III? I think if this is true, SE is getting way overboard with the projects. Focus on a couple things at a time. What about XIV on PS3?
@ Nukacola FFXIV is expected to start ps3 beta on november 2012..completely redesigned! http://lodestone.finalfanta...
You don't want FFXIV...No one can save that travesty
XV will probably be Versus. I doubt SE want to make another game with the number XIII after seeing XIII-2's sales today. As for it being a multiplatform, I can see that happening as well unfortunately.
What was wrong with the sales? I thought I saw half a million which is great for first day in Japan
If this happens... nope, I really can't even get any more disappointed with SE, I just can't. At this point, I really don't care anymore. I'll buy Vs when it releases if it's still an exclusives and it still shows promise. Other than that, I'm done with SE. Unless they're able to pull out a miracle with the next installment (which knowing SE is impossible), I really don't care.
you are done with SE? So any other game that comes out that they are part of you are just going to boycott? Cool. Have fun. I guess DE: Human Revolution sucked too. Oh and the new Tomb Raider looks like junk. I hope you don't play that one. Oh right, and Hitman Absolution looks like trash too right? What about the Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distnace? That is probably also going to be sh*tty. Yah, i hope you stop supporting SE because all their new games suck. I hope you you miss these potential hits because of your ignorance.
How long new game? When released first trailer started date: Final Faintasy XIII complete game on FEB 2010!! FFXIII versus 4yr. XIV online ps3 2yr............... FFXV If go 5 year do PS5 LOL !!!FINAL FANTASY VII remake!!! yet release like 6yr? SE failed. Waste of time SE.
sorry dude, your post doesnt even make sense.
Half a million for the first week is small for a console FF game in Japan. FF games are usually 1 million+ sellers, even X-2 did 1.5 mmillion in it's first week which was 400K less than X while XIII-2 sold a million less than XIII.
Oh for the love of god, why don't they just make FF13 Versus into FF15 It gets the meda spotlight back onto "Versus" Sqaure will have more publicity for it, thus leading to more sales We finally get a good FF game this gen Versus dosen't need to be a spin off anymore and it can also distance it's self from FF13 Everyone wins.... Just rename Versus Sqaure
I totally agree. For the love of Christ just finish Versus XIII Square before you announce FFXV (Unless FF Versus XIII is Final Fantasy XV in which case, Hellz ya.)
if you like it or not FFvsXIII is part of FNC and FFXV should be something new without all that Etro s***
Well Final Fantasy Agito XIII was and still is tied to the Fabula Nova Crystallis series but they still re named it to Type-0. Anyway FF13 Versus only has things here and there of the mythology from FF13s universe but lets face it you really have to read deep into FF13 complicated story to know that. Plus Versus has been in development for a while now they could of easily changed the mythology of Versus Besides if you look at the gameplay from Versus can you honestly tell me they look like they come from the same universe. You have FF13 which is bright and colourful...then Versus with it's dark themed realistic looking city.
@ WhiteLightning, I do understand your sentiment, but it's far too late now. I know you want it changed, but it's not gonna happen. FFXV is saved for main entry games. We all know by now, Versus XIII is different from your traditional FF game by the very nature of the gameplay - it's Nomura's experimental side FF, and it looks amazing. But it doesn't warrant the XV name. And about the universe thing. A universe is a BIG place. They could be set on different planets or something.
@WhiteLightning If they rename versus they would never make XV out of it and there is no point since this game was announced at the same time. It would be weird if it turns out that XIII and "XV" were announced at the same time lol. I don't think the mythology will be changed. Nomura said there are still fal'cies, l'cies and stuff like that in versus. well, vsXIII looks different and you have a point with that, but I don't like that "real world" concept. I would rather see FFXV look like FFX :P
@DigitalRaptor Your joking right, I'm with Whitelightning on this one, it's not too late we don't have a clue what Square have been up to since they last showed us something. It's just a name, then you have to remember that they said it would only share a few things with FF13 not the entire backstory of it's or their universe. You say Versus is differen't from a traidtional FF game but then thing is so was FF13, thats why it was so bad. At the end of the day Versus should of been a main title FF game because it's more of a FF game then FF13. Like what the guy above has said and many others point out a game that looks this good should not be a spin off, FF13 should of been the spin off while Versus should of been the main title FF game. FF13 wouldn't of gotten so much hate if it was just seen as a spin off game. Trust me, FF13 Versus looks more like a traditional FF game then FF13. Fair enough both are differen't but if I or many others like WL had to choose between the two I would pick Versus. Versus deserves to be a main entery game not a spin off of a crappy FF game which SHOULD OF BEEN the spin off Anyway do you think online games like FF11 and FF14 deserved to be main title FF games. @Poseidon13 "If they rename versus they would never make XV out of it and there is no point since this game was announced at the same time" It has been in development for years you know, they can change it to FF15 if they wanted it to. As it's been said before FF Type 0 had it's name changed near the end of it's development. Lets not forget that FF14 was announced shortly after and it's an online game
Why can't they just it an exclusive again, hasn't it showed Sqaure with FF13 on the 360 that nobody cares that much about it. Instead of learning though now they have to put it on the Wii U and PC.....<sigh> Once they see how well Final Fantasy 13: Versus does in sales for the PS3 they might change their tune.
Why do you care if it was released for pc or wii u?
PC or Wii U wouldn't be a problem, but 360 would just lead to more gimping. At this point, it's a proven fact that the 360's use of DVD really does hamper games. There's no arguing about, it's a fact. I wouldn't mind if it came out on the Wii U/Ps3/PC, as long as it's not gimped by the 360 yet again, it'll be fine.
the game sold 1 million+ copies on the 360 though.so can you really blame square for waiting that extra profit.this is the gaming industry it's a business there is no loyalty to brands and every company understands this....
I totally agree, people forget about the escalating costs of game developement and if they can get those extra dollars to off set it they will release it on multiple platforms. If Ffxiii-2 sells 2million on the 360 you can bet that all future FF will b on the 360" If FFXV is announced at e3 2012 it will be for next gen console.
I think he's blaming the 360 for se's shortcomings...
I'm not the type to assume that every game from a company comes from the same studio, but... Finish Versus first. Geez...
Will FFXV simply be the renamed vsXIII for the PS4/Next Box? Probably.
F*cking finish Versus XIII first. What on EARTH
I agree with you.. I hope this is not TRUE.
If this happens I'll be extremely pissed
Lol, it amuses me that I saw the headline, thought, "Really? Before vs13?" and then opened the comments to see everyone else saying the same thing. Are we, like, fringe fans or something? Is there a louder group out there saying they want XIII-2 and XV, and Square is listening to them instead of the folks asking for Versus? Their business strategy is really starting to throw me for a spin, because all I ever seem to hear when they make an announcement is people calling for a new Kingdom Hearts or a Versus XIII, and they keep clamming up on the subject. Then again, every time Valve opens their mouths we scream for them to say Half-Life 3, so maybe SE is just trolling us like Valve.
Square recently mentioned they want to produce FF games on a yearly to bi yearly basis, so maybe.
Final fantasy returning to a Nintendo console for the first time since the SNES? Fuck yeah!
Wii has many FF games plus the VC classics, GC has FFCC, DS & GBA have many FF games, etc.
@Chrono I don't think they mean FF side games, their talking about the main Final fantasy games. Just I - VI and thats it. now XV coming to the wii so it's been 18-19 years since the last Main Final fantasy game which is VI.
Yeah. I meant the main numbered ones. The true turn based ones. FF I-VI
I'm probably in the minority. But I want Square to make a Crystal Bearers 2 for Nintendo.
FF Versus=XV Its coming ps3,x360,and Wii U.
Final Fantasy Versus 13 will be move over to the PS Vita
I'll be extremely upset if that happens.
please do not be an MMO pleas squenix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They said it will probably be an action RPG: http://www.next-gen.biz/new...
You know what... Your profile name Rocks!!! Squenix bring us Chrono BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!
They got XIV, so don't worry, they'll just keep on updating it and put expansion packs.
My best guess is that they decided to ditch the lame name of Versus XIII and slap XV on there instead, but who knows. (which reminds me, where the f*ck is vsXIII? lul) Although.... my personal wish would be that they decided to go back to the fantasy setting that was in IX (9), and returned to the open-world formula found in the older games. That would f*cking rock.
It's funny how people take rumors so seriously. Square Enix didn't even said a word about XV, GameMaster UK thinks that XV is their surprise for the 25th anniversary. lol
If that was Real Announcement I'll .. i'll .. i'll . . . Never mind Please Square Bring back Aya brea & Sora better than wasting all your time with all those FF titles .. Just Finish Versus XIII Already !
Aya Brea came back on the PSP already, or did you miss the 3rd birthday as for this news, SE you dissapoint me, I actually wanted FFVs for ages, and you just keep on ignoring us all, not amused:-(
No .. I want the REAL Aya brea , Not the fake one from the 3rd birhtday even its not apart from the sequel Duh ! .. By the way i finish T3B 33 Times just to tell you if you don't know .. and yes I'm a BIGGEST FAN OF PE Series !
what the fuck
Same Reaction : WTF ! Don't worry .. XV → Versus XIII
I hope. I mean, they announce 13124214 other games where they don't even finish the announced ones. >:(
Well this site is just guessing lmao.
I hope not. I want Versus before any other FF.
No more FF games, please
LET IT DIE.
I wouldn't mind seeing a final fantasy game with 2D sprites, like the ones back on the nes/snes. They can make the sprites hd ala Murasama: Demon Blade. That way, they can focus more on the story/scale/gameplay rather than the graphics.
Versus? oh right, sorry, i forgot that versus already become a vaporware :P btw, where's Type-0 official localization announcement from SE? i've got a feeling that Type-0 will japan only...
I thought they already have plans for (or is) localizing Type-0? :( As for FFXV, I don't know how I feel about that since I've yet to see FFXIIIVs. :/
Yeah. I read the news that they already plan to localize Type-0. But until now, SE never gave one official confirmation about it. So i'm still pessimist about Type-0 will have an english ver...
OMFG, seriously?! Before Versus is even done?! F... you, Square.
is that a wii u remote she's holding in her hands in that picture?
...but at the same time, I want FFVsXIII just as mush as everyone else too. Just... finish the damn game. Wasn’t that thing announced before the PS3 even came out? Hot damn.
I'm hoping its versus instead. But I fear they will will release versus when the ps3 is in its dying days but if the ps4 is backwards comparable won't matter then.
The PS2 was backwards compatible and FFIX’s sales were hurt by it being an end of the lifecycle game. And it was one of the most critically praised of the FF’s. Just check it’s aggregate score.
I'll take you word for it. I don't use reviews as a mean to justify if a game was good or not. Scores mean nothing to me if they did I would have mw3 and be playing. It right now.
announced in 2012 and released in 2020
They need to fix FF14 first, and then they need to release VS as well... it doesnt matter as long as these games are not on 360...
Final fantasy needs a break both 13 and 14 sucked they need to stop trying to make ff games every year ff is not madden
