Square Enix gives status update for Final Fantasy Versus XIII and believes fans will be impressed when they next show the game.
more likely, hope 13-2 fails in the us, not sure if call it fail in japan, but some people think so. Im guessing they will place the other console at the end of the trailer. ;_;
I can't wait for ffvs13 and I'm hoping Itll be released this year.
They better not screw up, hope the low sales fo XIII-2 in Japan (for now) shake them up!
Square Enix on Versus XIII: "People will be excited when they next see it".......In 2100 -_-
Hopefully it'll stay exclusive and they'll announce a 2012 release date. Maybe if we're gonna be more realistic, I'd guess Q1-2 in 2013.
Commander_TK - It will be PS3 exclusive, Tetsuya Nomura already stated he didn't want to work mutliplatform. He'd rather work exclusively on one console from the beginning, then maybe port it over later. Anyway, I hope this comes out later this year, I would love that. This game has been in development way too long damnit. Especially considering they won't start Kingdom Hearts 3 until this is finished, argh!
at least 3 years too late for THAT!
Come on $E, this may be the last game I buy from you.
Can't say I'm all that excited tbh. The title quote sums up the new Square perfectly.. We'll be excited when we "SEE" it. I don't want to be excited when I see it, I want to be excited when I'm experiencing it for myself. Too much shiny, too little substance.. should be Square's equivalent of EA sports "it's in the game"
solid way to start the new year mhmm
Um besides the obvious fact that FFXIII-2 success would mean more ff games on 360, why else do you want it to fail?
Kind of sad in this day and age when gamers want to see a game series go under.
"[...]why else do you want it to fail?" Maybe it has to fail so SE realizes that their vision of FF isn't matching fans expectations? Main problem: Fans yell and cry but still buy...
Well with the time it spent in devlopment i wouldnt be surprised if it had to go multiplatform just to make that much needed dough. Either way im going to enjoy this on my ps3.
It will NEVER live up to the hype. That's certain.
Which hype? That it's vaporware, it's more crap from SquareEnix, or it's going to be an awesome game?
Biggest What hype?? People have been lauding this game as if it is the second coming of Jesus while knowing nothing about it, that hype.
People certainly have been itching for news on Versus, as what has been shown looked promising; but there's been virtually nothing since TO hype, and thus, we've heard very little about it.
Whoops, I meant to write which not what. That'll bug me.
The point of my comment was not that I haven't heard the hype. I am trying to figure out which hype it will fail to live up to. I really thought my comment was pretty clear. Will it: A: Never be released B: Be a terrible game C: Be an awesome game D: Fail to live up to any hype and end up being released, being better than terrible, and worse than awesome.
Biggest I know, I accidentally wrote what instead of which as I said above. If someone is talking about the hype surrounding vXIII it can only be about people making it out to be the salvation of JRPGs.
I don't care what anyone says, I'm still excited for this.
I agree, I I'm excited also. Ive had this one under my radar for a while. Maybe e3 s-e will show us some updated footage.
I'm stoked seriously
its alive! although i shant be excited when microshaft ruin it for everyone.
@snookies12 I totally agree! I just want KH3 and the sooner this releases the sooner they finally announce it
what will be wrong if it comes on the other console?..more people enjoy it..i own all consoles so there is no problem here for me
The main foreseeable problem with that would be that it would explain why it's taking so damn long to make the game. Think of it this way. You got a game you're making for like...2 years on one console, then you're told you gotta make it work on two. The amount of changes you'd have to do, coupled with a change in the game engine would pretty much put you at ground zero again.
It's been proven that going multiplat hinders a game's potential especially when going from PS3 exclusive to 360. The major issue is the 360's DVD limitation. It's a glaring flaw and versus could very well suffer because of it.
rebirthofcaos hoping for a game to fail is not a good thing, as seeing FF13-2 is looking like what FF13 should have been. so forget FF13 which was a good game even though people give it crap but 13-2 looks like a better game and fixes many issues wuth FF13. versus 13 i am excited about, i am not a FF fan but i am excited that its not a turn base FF title. I like that combat will be all in real time. one thing i could careless about is whther its exclusive or not, my enjoyment won't be based off that att all. and FF13 was on 3 disks on xbox360 so we know SE won't cut the content from versus if they do release it on xbox360.
Wait, hold the phone. WHY would you WANT something to fail? Why would you wish for something you don't care for to do poorly? Just don't buy it. Why even bring XIII-2 up in a Versus article anyway?
i guess Rebirthofcaos wanted FF series from now on to stay exclusives to PS.....? wait a minute, FF series has not really been exclusive to any platform haven't they? Why ask for something that was never yours?
FF may not have ever been totally exclusive to any console but it has never been Multiplatform trash either. The point isn't "keep it away from 360 blowhards!" its "Stick to one platform at a time so you can utilize all it's strengths". At least When FF made the jump from Nintendo to Sony it was for the GAME's benefit. FFVII would have been quite subpar had it been on Nintendo console as they refused to bring their hardware up to standard. God forbid if it was Multi between the two!!!! Awful.
people excited over something Square Enix shows? Unless they name this Kingdom Hearts 3, I doubt that...
Hopefully they taking their time because they are doing a port for the Xbox 360. In that way more people can enjoy the game
"People will be excited when they next see it" What year will we see it?
What year will we play it? We've already seen it, and seen it and seen it....
@fluffy I hope when they say "fans will be excited" that means that we're excited cause they will announce the release date and that it will release this year!!!
Lola's at that
I'd be excited, surprised and impressed all at once if I do ever see it. This is turning into the new duke nukem forever.
I'll be excited when I next play it
Because it goes multiplatform ;) lol
lol at your logic.
heh... keep dreaming kid.
This and Agent are competing for the best vapourware award this year.
I think Agent is the real winner here. We've been hearing snippets about Versus and TLG's development. But we've heard absolutely nothing about Agent.
i agree people waiting for agent are fools as there is nothing i know about this game execpt that it was annonced as an IP during "that" E3 and nothing since...
just show it already. I admit i liked what i saw 'last time' but the wait is taking its toll
At least we know it's not dead. So which comes out first? Versus XIII The Agent The Last Guardian Interesting that they're all PS3 exclusives. Sony needs to kick them in the balls to hurry up with development. They're getting too much leeway.
true, but luckily they have other games to fill the gaps. Team ico and PD are notoriously long at finishing games. The agent is a mystery and verses is at least moving alone even if its at a snails pace
As much as i would love to have all 3 of those games out i rather Sony not rush them to be completed especially this day an age where everything is rushed and broken.But i understand your frustration. http://youtu.be/6RMki27UdXs
This one has English subs and it's higher quality: http://youtu.be/DEAgmL97wHU... ;)
I think Sony only has control with The Last Guardian since that's 1st party the other two is 3rd party, kicking them in the balls would make their respective developers mad. lol! Throw them money though should solve it. XD
That is if we ever get to see it...
Exactly, and I will believe it ONLY after we I see it and actually have solid proof that it will not be another over-hyped under-performing FF game.
im finding it hard to still be excited for this game its taking way too long
I don't think so, this game has been in development forever, SquareEnix is far from what it's predecessor Squaresoft was! In all actuality SquareEnix, not unlike Capcom is in for a rude awakening!
Squeenix is taking too much for granted considering their recent record.
that is if they show it at all...
Hmmm, a bit odd Squeenix are providing a (sort of) update on Versus instead of Nomura for once, I wonder if they're actually planning on pushing the title now? Ah I just read the article in full and see it was more of an off-hand comment by Kitase (in an interview probably about something else) as opposed to an actual attempt at hyping up the next Versus showing. Should be soon anyway, if I remember correctly it was last January or February when they released some footage, and Nomura said a good 4-6 months ago that the next setting for showing off Versus was already set so I expect something soon. Perhaps that's me being naive but put it this way, I think we'll know in the next couple of months whether there's any chance whatsoever of Versus releasing in 2012 / early 2013 or not.
*still waiting patiently for Japanese titles*
i know i willl be!!i
I love how N4G community members love to act like they are well informed but know zero on almost any subject matter because they can't be bothered with reading anything past a article title. Facts for the masses of uninformed above - A lot of info has already been released on FFvs13...look it up! - It's taken 5 years because the team has been split up working on several projects that have just finished being released and that includes Zero and FF13-2. - As of late last year vs13 went into full production and is SE's next project scheduled to release. - All character designes have been completed and Nomura has navigated the entire world map...think of FF13 with cars/airships/Chocobos and on foot...these have all been confirmed There is much more info but the sheep who can't be bothered to read will continue to hope the title fails because it hasn't been confirmed on the 360. In these individuals minds if it doesn't come to them then it should fail or be vaporware. I personally don't care if the title comes to the 360 as long as gamers don't get tons of content cut out just so 360 only owners can get the game. It happened with FF13 which is why I believe FF13-2 was all the content that would have been in FF13 if it had not gone multiplat...but that's just what I think.
Sadly, you can't get people to understand things like that. It's just like all the arguments that XIII-2 is exactly the same as XIII, despite there being all this evidence to the contrary. They WANT a reason for the game to do poorly, and will most definitely ignore positives to try an reinforce that point of view.
Exactly. I mean I've been follwoing this game's production for awhile now. You could actually find a large amount of info about it. I can see it coming out next Jan even. Maybe earlier.
That's just rationalizing. They shouldn't have announced the game that far out. It should be an industry policy not to announce the existence of a game more than 1 year from projected release.
That's what I've been saying all the time. People are always like: "why are you getting so excited for a game which you know very little about? And then I say that a lot of info has been released but I get tons of disagrees anyway. The game's looking pretty good: http://youtu.be/DEAgmL97wHU...
Noctis orgy...Noctis ORGY!.....NOCTIS ORGY!!!! Hehehe Yeah lots of info has been released, including story elements if you pay enough attention, you can also tell the fabula nova crystallis connection.(it's nothing like FFXIII version of the myth btw)
Respect to you + bubbles THRILLREBORN!! I can't stand the ignorance when it comes to this game. We've seen and heard so much more about Versus XIII than people claim and the reasons people are excited is based on all this available information. I can't wait for the latest info and I know it's coming soon. The XIII-2 hype will only last so long and then once that's finally out the way, Square will begin to reveal new info about Versus - and I can't wait for people to change their tunes.... except the 360 fanboys (of course) who can't face that this game's not being built for their console of choice!
