Tetsuya Nomura provides cryptic update about Final Fantasy Versus XIII in Famitsu.
Game is vapourware. Until I see some proof it's in development, I don't think it exists. The fact he's "working on information" is ridiculous...
Probaly cancelled game... maybe for PS4 title?
FF versus 13 team was hard at work.....working on information about what they've made so far.
Hopefully not cancelled, but I wish they rename it to FF15, because 13 has gotten milked a little too much already.
For a Second I thought the title said "Nomura almost finished working on Final Fantasy Versus XIII" and I was ready to piss my pants. Of course, that misread was too good to be true...I'm only 20 and it feels like I won't live to see the light of day when this game releases. I've been dying to at least learn more about it.
I also did a double take, but actually *expected* that I was reading it wrong the first time :) Thought process: "FFvsXIII almost finished? No, that can't be right..." At this point, Square Enix should just roll with the absurdity. Maybe release a countdown site ticking off the seconds until we get a trailer hyping the release of the "information". Seriously, this is Japan's problem. They don't need to imitate the West. They just need to make more AAA games that actually GET RELEASED in a reasonable time frame.
W0W! this game was revealed when you were 14, kinda sad that this game has been in development for so long
I agree, this was announced damn near when the ps3 launched. So far two FF sequels have come and went and not one word from Vs. I think this game has probably gone through many production stages of scrap, rebuilds to on hold until they can figure out their direction.
Theres TONS of information on Versus you just haven't been looking or paying attention http://gamrconnect.vgchartz...
@pimm I agree. Anyone who is saying that it's vapourware, then you've obviously been missing the tidbits that Square and Nomura have released over the years and in particular, the hard-to-miss gameplay trailer that was released last year. And since then, the build has undergone a merger with the new Luminous engine so the lighting will apparently be even better. To believe that it is being built and then scrapped is ridiculous. The only valid reason for it's delays is it being put on hold because of other priorities such as XIII, XIII-2 and X HD. The only problem with his game, is that Square announced it too early. We would be nowhere near as impatient waiting for it otherwise. I'm waiting for this game to blow me away and the only obstacle is time.
I am still very excited to see more of this game, however Square Enix do need to release this game. I still believe it will be a great game but they have been working on this game for way too long. Enough with perfecting the game (this is how Nomura is) and release it. I just don't understand what the hold up is anymore.
Im with Thom,I'm starting to think this was a tech demo all along.
Even at this point if the game actually exist, I'm going to have a hard time believing its decent much less good until I'm playing a demo. Maybe even then.
WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK IS GOING ON?!? He can't give out info due to UNRELATED reasons? WTF does that mean. What a joke.
Uh-oh... It seems like SE might be debating on whether or not to make the game multiplat... That would explain why he can't give out info. And if they do decide to go multiplat they would have to delay versus 13 yet again which would make releasing info now foolish... I hope this isn't true.
I think they've already decided...It's taken WAY too long to get this game shelved. For atleast half a year after the showing at the conference there has been little to NO articles about the game til now. Everyone went back to wishing for KH3. <-btw WTH square!!?!
If they're debating then the game is likely already a lost cause. DVD format will have to be the in mind preference, and whatever graphic performance they've promised is going to go to crap in the name of standardization. Their first and foremost concern should be playability, not access. Know it not a popular though but the Xbox is all but dead in Japan so it makes no sense whatsoever to consider it in terms of equality much less to make the system popular - especially with this gen practically over. Really, what the hell is Wada thinking? Nomura for that matter. Didn't he threaten to quit?
Maybe its not 360 but ps3/wiiu
thats honestly the only thing i could think of delaying this game.
I laughed hard. Thank you.
only reason why this game has taken so long to show up is because Square Enix for some idiotic reason made Final Fantasy XIII and its sequels first priority, with XIV also becoming a bigger priority. Nomura himself spent most of his time on XIII. towards the end of last year he said that the game had entered full production for the first time. judging XIII-2 for all we know SE could've pulled some staff from the Versus team again to work on XIII-3. but I fully expect the game to be finished by the end of the yearand follow a cycle similar to that of XIII-2. don't think it's gone multiplatform either. many signs point to that imo. seems like the man is intent on pulling an MGS4 and maxing out a Blu-ray disc. maybe that's another reason why its taking so long? because he's making it so friggen awesome?
The game that never was.
gameplay please, not much else matters @ this point
What does working on information even mean? I guess the game is no where close to being done then.
Just tells us something! After 6 freaking years, reveal more DX!
He's working on information. It's rumored that this information is just talking about how he's getting ready to tell us more but we'll have to wait on more information...That he'd be working on.
Working on ...information about the next info update.. yeah..just cancel it already.
I am very happy to inform that, sometime, in the near future, I will have something to say...
If it weren't true, it wouldn't even be so funny. This whole situation is inconceivable.
If they announce multiplat details ive lost all hope in square
Im usually the optimist but i dont know what to say at this point...
I honest to god just don't care about this game anymore. Really, it's been so long there's no way it could live up to any expectations I might have had for it anyway.
Looking forward to hearing more about maybe something important I hope other than gameplay details. I.e. how far along they are in making it, or potential release date etc. I have a feeling the only reason this game is taking so long to be shown completely is because of Square's big wigs. They seem to hate the ps3 more than anything this gen.
This game is not even a blip on my radar too many other games to play and finish. I have Mass Effect 3, Hyper Dimension Neptunia 2 and Tales of Grace F to play. Also Assassins Creed 3 is coming out this year. And quite honestly in my eyes they should have finished up FFVS13 then released FF13-2. Not even sure I'll get this game if and when it comes out. I'll have a PS4 and a Xbox 720 before this game even sees a store shelf.
