Director Tetsuya Nomura says that Square Enix will show Versus XIII running on the PlayStation 3 next time and more.
*Sigh* I don't blame Nomura for not being able to talk more about Versus XIII, but I wish Square would let him talk more about the game. It honestly won't hurt XIII-2's marketing if he says "We will share more info and a release date about Versus XIII on XX/XX/2012". Of course Square Enix doesn't see things like that so whatever. Edit: From Famitsu: "As for when we’d next see the title, Nomura says that while an event has not yet been scheduled (they’re still working out details), the next time we see the game, it will be running on an actual PS3" Well all I have is this to say, COME ON SQUARE!!! Get the details together and show the damn game. I think the fans at the very least deserve that.
That's probably it. They know that things are a bit on the gloom side with 13-2 so they don't want to do anything that could potentially hurt 13-2's sales or take attention away from 13-2. I really hope that we will hear a wealth of information on VS13 come february or march.
Running on the ps3!? Well of course what else would it run o.....oh....I see.
They've probably been running it on PC
all the previous footage were from PC... cause you know... the games are being developed on PC. duh
I looked at the site where gamingeverything.com got their source and on the Japanese site translated by google it says this: "Recently, the check was drawn towards the release date. The expressive power is up significantly from last year's trailer." Does anyone speak Japanese. Does this mean that they already have an internal release date and they will announce it the next time we see Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
Without seeing the original text I can ony guess, but yes it sounds like they have a date in mind but have not announced it, or at the very least are letting people know its drawing closer.
Stop yapping and start releasing dammit. I have a feeling my grandchildren will hear about this fairy tale of a game.
13 was a fail. I love final fantasy, but i just could not complete it it was just to boring. Then to make 13-2, is just a waste. You guys remember xenogears? Ff6? Those games where more "mature". I don't blame my wife for laughing at me for the corny voice acting, and embarrassingly enthusiastic characters who sing Pop songs, always coupled with an ever insecure protagonist. I hope this ff doesnt insult my intelligence.
I really hoped they would at least give it a name change Call it Final Fantasy 15 and I might of forgive them for how long it's taking I know people think "Oh it shouldn't be FF15 because it plays like KH....its too differen't" Really.....so whats FF13s excuse, that certainly didn't play like a traidtional FF game. I would pick the battle system from Versus over FF13s Paradigm Shift anyday to use in the future of FF. Unless they went back to turn base...all they really need to do is make it more fast paced to keep people active throughout the battle....just so people don't get bored. Look at Lost Odyssey and it's ring system (basicaly an improvment system from FF8 with Squalls gunblade trigger)
I agree they need to separate this title from FF13 especially if it plays nothing like it. IM just hoping we all end up with a memorable experience like Kingdom Hearts........and not a forgettable one like The Bouncer
I think calling it final fantasy versus 13 is perfect. It's gonna be everything opposite of ff13. Therefore it'll actually be a good ff game and go mostly back to its roots. (Mostly because it has action battle system instead of turn based)
The Bouncer! The 1999 Trailer hyped me so much
Call it Final Fantasy Versus, problem solved.
The next duke nukem forever... how many years has it been since they announced this thing? 6?
release date will be holiday 2012 in japan it will be shown at tgs or e3 haters suck it
Maybe if they show the game before April, they could release the game in Japan for Christmas, and have a US/Europe release during Q1 2013. Whatever it is, by the time this game comes out, the PS4 and/or the Xbox 3 will be already announced, and the relevance of the game will be severely lowered. When it was announced, everyone was excited because of the potential in graphics and tech it had, but if they star showing tech demos, or games for next gen consoles before this comes out, it won't impress as much as it should have, had it realized 2 years ago.. Square Enix is making very poor decisions regarding Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hears this generation. It's like they are 100% focused on the western market, not realizing that it will bite them in the ass in the long run. Only solution: Get rid of Wada (for the millionth time, and i think everybody thinks the same, but the people of SE)
I doubt this game will even be in Japan by the end of 2012.Maybe early 2013 and if this gmae isnt annocend a mulit plat or ported over to 360 by then maybe ill think of buying a ps3 around that time.
vs is ps3 only already gone into full production there no 360 port?
Well anything could happen its gonna be awhile before the game is finally realesed.I havent a bought a PS3 yet because there was nothing on it I cared enough about to buy it but VERSUS might be that push. Developers these days seem to be about money anyway I wouldnt be surprised if it somehow went mulit plat.
I got a bad feeling about this...that versus will not get a 2012 or 2013 release date. Just look at the info nomura gave and it's so thin! And nomura look's unsure where / when he can give more detail about versus. I mean...WTF! Is this game a main priority to him / SE? If yes than why versus got treated like a garbage game?! >.< Well, 2012 still have 11 months and 13 days left. I hope this is just another bad teasing before the big reveal....
Xiii-2 isn't out yet. That's the only reason. I say september - October release 2012
The Cinderella Story begins can it make it for release by the 12 month of the year in japan
With so many project that nomura had (KH 3D, FF X HD, etc), i doubt it... and i got the feel that versus will become multiplat if yes than it will double / triple nomura works... My prediction of versus release date: maybe late 2013 or early 2014
Sooo Nomura went from knowing when the next showing was to not having a clue. Nice. I swear when any news comes out of SE I just get more pissed off at them.
I have a good feeling we will see this game by E3 for the latest running on PS3 and it will come out in Holiday 2012 worldwide. I remember reading an article that SQUARE was already doing the English voice over since in 2011 so I think that could mean a worldwide launch.
kinda off topic but Noctis looks different in the latest trailer compared to one of the first videos of VersusXIII. is it just only me? :/
His face proportions are more realistic and his Van Hellsing clothes are gone, which in my opinion, it's a nice change of pace from the same old anime inspirations.
As much hate CGI cutscenes have been getting, I like them very much. If Versus is going down the route of FF7 through FF9 cutscene excellence, I'll be even happier.
Ratio of in-game (real time) and pre-rendered cutscene events is 7:3. I was going to comment on that as well. 7:3 is a good ratio since SE makes the best cutscenes.
Agreed, very good ratio.
man those old seamless cutscenes transition on the PS1 games are still impressive even by today's standards. http://youtu.be/6Y0twB4KmTk... This is only one of the many others great cutscene transitions in the PS1 FF games.
I still can't get over how awesome the FF8 intro is/was.
I just watched FF8 ending in high quality and it made me miss the good old days when FF can't do any wrong. FF8 is so underrated. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I just wanna sit back and play the damn game I am hyped about this game but the hype is slowly fading away. I'll see the PS4 and Xbox 720 before this game arrives/
Take your time, try and get it right.
6 or so years to make a game.. it was supposed to be released next to ff13 well you see how that turned out..
According to the interview Nomura already did the most dificult parts of making the game so hopefully it wont take to long before it ships out. Im prettty sure the game will be released this year.
2014-15 release date, i'm telling you.
2015 is ridiculous. I'm still hoping for late 2012-2013 but realistically it's mid 2013-2014.
You think that a game that is supposed to be much more bigger than FFXIII and that started full production last month is gonna be finished by the end of this year? I know they announced FFvs at the start of this gen but both team (the KH team and main FF team) has been working on FFXIII and then on its sequel you know.
FIRE WADA and we'll surely see it.
@Truerandom I was thinking the same thing, call it FF Versus, as enix is tying 13 to it, to make 13 seem like it was a great game after all and FF fans will associate Versus and 13 together! In regards to this game overall though, after watching the gameplay footage, it appears to play just like XIII and XIII-2. There are also some discrepancies with what was announced and what was shown (i.e. blood, there wasn't any present in battle) which was something mentioned that would set it apart from previous FF titles. If this game plays like XIII and XIII-2, then this long wait will have been for nothing. We've already seen these gameplay mechanics twice, hopefully Nomura, realizes that Versus, needs a more traditional FF combat system and implement's it! That's the only way I see the Versus, succeeding. That along with including what was stated it would have (i.e blood, Kingdom Hearts type battle system)
Dude you are all over the place with that comment. First you say that you want it to be more like traditional FF combat system but then you turn around and say it needs to have the Kingdom Hearts battle system. From there you say that the game looks like it plays like XIII and XIII-2. Did you watch the same trailer as we did. From the trailer it looks like a refined version of the Kingdom Hearts battle system with full control over your party. Period. That is what the battle system is and how it will be when the game releases. It looks nothing like XIII's ATB system. Edit: I am all out of bubbles so if you want to discuss this more you will have to PM me.
Cant wait to play this. Its gonna be one of the best exclusives out there! PS3 FTW
From a translation on Novacrystallis.com it says this " Regarding Versus, Nomura had a bit more to say. He’s been checking new media to be revealed to the press, and in comparison with last year’s trailer, the expression of the visuals has increased quite a bit." New media to be revealed to the press? I really hope this is the accurate translation. That means they have stuff lined up to show in magazines, and possible footage as well.
like I said.. E3 is right around the corner. 5 months aint much of a wait
FFvs13 release date: Second coming.
They can announce a new trailer for this any day, but please, don't show it in closed dome that cell phones are not allowed called 'Megatheatre'. If what you tease people about aren't for the masses to see, don't announce or even speak a word or two about it. Believe me, this close megatheatre thing is a thing of the past and should be trashed.
damn i feel sad for some ppl. i remember when i was little i read a comment on youtube talking about this game and now i see a comment they said he was waiting for this game ever since 2006 when the trailer was new and now im about to leave highschool. shows how game take time to make it as best as it can be
I was 15 when the 3 FFXIII games were announced, and I was so hyped! Now? 21, 22 this year. Likely 23 / 24 by the time I get to play Versus. I am still looking forward to the game but Square Enix announced it FAR too early.
damn i can respect that. some ppl just forget about it and move on but waiting is just to long yeah i was like 12 when i first saw it and now 2012 im 18.. damn lol my highschool pass with many games
