1up: How Can Final Fantasy Versus XIII Not be a Disappointment?

Square Enix announced Final Fantasy Versus XIII way back at E3 in 2006, along with its peers Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII. Since then, both vanilla XIII and Agito have actually seen release -- Agito under the new name "Type-0" -- and the former has even enjoyed a recent sequel. Yet Versus remains nowhere to be seen; Square didn't even bother teasing it at last year's Tokyo Game Show. (Final Fantasy XV, PS3)

Am quite skeptical about FFvs13, because its made by a company called Square Enix.

If it was made by a company called Squaresoft i would buy it, not based on the quality of the game. But based on the name of the company on the box. Many would do the same.

This says a lot about the image of Square Enix. Lets just hope they dont add an auto battle feature & make you pay for secret bosses, or have towns with little to no people & where you cant enter buildings...

I agree with the author on most points except when he bad mouthed Kingdom Hearts and Tetsuya Nomura's stories. He called people who "say they understand" Kingdom Hearts story liars. A little bit bias there but I will let it slide. I understand Kingdom Hearts story. Just because you can't doesn't make other people "liars". And Nomura makes things with awesome stories (Final Fantasy games, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children).

Second, I trust the story to be good. Period.

Now all we need is Square to announce the freaking game.
TheUnbiasedLion  +   842d ago
Yeah I was a bit miffed by that too, just because he is to stupid to understand a deep intricate plot doesn't mean the rest of the world is the same.

Thus what I don't like about some gamers, if it requires thought they give up.
young juice  +   841d ago
you know i wonder what he thinks about metal gear solids story. because if you think about it mgs and kingdom hearts pretty similar in terms of base mechanics. for instance they both have intricate stories(hideo kojima does a better job at telling mgs imo), they both blend the lines between japanese and western entertainment, and they both have combat mechanics that are rarely perfected in other games/end rant

i just dont think the author had motivation to understand the story
RedDead  +   841d ago
I hope it is good. It is my most hyped game. But as far as i'm concerned...This is Nomura's chance to win me over. Because KH didn't for many reasons. For example, is Nomura gonna make battles the complete focus of the game like KH, where the battles get extremely repetitive after a while? I mean, the KH battle system is good, it proves itself in the boss battle's. But the regular battles are bad and boring. All he needs to do for Versus is..give some breaks to battles. Nothing more than that.

It's called pacing and when used right it makes game go from good to great. FFXIII for example did not have any pacing at all.

As for Music, Shimumura fu** yes. Graphics, covered, art style excellent imo. Airships/chocobo's etc covered. The story seems like it will be good so far from what I can tell. It's pretty realistic...with some fantasy elements(like game of thrones actually)

Edit--also t below about the 360. I'd be shocked if it wasn't going to 360. This is NOT Nomura's call no matter how much he would like it to be. He is NOT a Ps fanboy like some people think either. He has developed for other devices and stuff. And most importantly..This is Square Enix...the most important factor in the equation.

Reibooi  +   841d ago
I don't think it will be a disappointment if Nomura gets all the stuff he said he wanted into the game. Given the time it's been in development I would assume he has gotten all that stuff and more. He has said and we have seen to a certain extent that Versus will be a return to the Final Fantasy everyone wants back with things like a world map and such.

If you think about it when other devs in SE were saying a FFVII remake would take a long time well that's what Versus is taking and from what little we know it's of similar scale.

NeoBasch  +   842d ago
You'd buy based on a label? What about the people who made that game instead? They're more important than any label. It's why I picked up XIII. It's why I picked up Persona 4, Uncharted 3, Heavy Rain, God of War III, Mass Effect 3, etc. I don't buy based on a company's name. I buy based on the talent behind the game. For Uncharted it was Hennig. For Persona it was Katsuro Hashino and Yuichiro Tanaka. For Heavy Rain, Cage. God of War, Asmussen. And finally Hudson and Walters for Mass Effect.

Ranma's been hating on FF since s/he joined the site. YOu'll notice about 96% of his/her posts are related to bashing XIII and XIII-2 in particular, while never having played them.

As for what you've said, I agree... well, kinda. I grabbed Persona 4 because I'd played 3 and some of the SMT games and loved them: ATLUS is a company I trust. Same with UC3: I have faith in Naughty Dog's work.

I get what you're saying, though: it should be the actual developers you buy the games for, rather than the publishers(which is why I'll buy Asura's Wrath despite Capcom being involved, since I love CyberCOnnect's games). That's one of the ways I decide on a game: since I know who's doing The Last Guardian, I feel comfortable spending my money on that game.

Which brings me to my next point, kinda sorta: people would be less disappointed if they stopped making up their own expectations for games. All the hate that was tossed XIII's way, for example, was unwarranted: at no point in time were ANY of the things people said were missing advertised to be in XIII. Every trailer and demo (and the game itself) all gave the same impression; the game, therefore, should have been judged based on that, instead of stuff it didn't even try to do. It's like getting mad at a puzzle game for not being action/adventure.

If people can avoid doing that with Versus (though it's probably already too late), then I think most folks can avoid being disappointed. As it stands, however, I think people have hyped the game up so far that it'll never be able to live up to expectations.

That would make it as disappointing as possible, If you don't want a JRPG buy Skyrim. But no way should the japanese hand their franchises to the west.

That would mean we would get FF7 the FPS, complete with 12v12 MP and a stupidly unbalanced perk system

I think it's pretty well known that JRPGs' stories are beyond cliche and written as if intended for Manga.

As for the fighting mechanics... FPS? Really? I think you over-exaggerated there a bit...

And even if Versus XIII DOES release in stores, I'll bet the game is going to be stripped to DLC pieces like what Square-Enix is doing to XIII-2.
Lucretia  +   841d ago
your a noob ranma, if you even looked at the gameplay or new about the game you would know its an action rpg like kingdom hearts created by kingdom hearts creator, aswell as has an open world map.

cant put auto battle in an action rpg u newb :P
DragonKnight  +   841d ago
Technically you can. Take a look at games like Star Ocean 3 where you can have the computer take control of everyone so long as you set a Tactics style, i.e. support first, attack second. Same can be done in this.
Lucretia  +   841d ago
Dragonknight

ummmm no one meant that lol. How the hell do you control 4 characters at the same time without AI?

again Kingdom hearts had donald, goofy, aladdin etc control themselves while you played, you could not make sora fight alone.

the difference in versus is that like star ocean you can switch on the fly. and like in star ocean you have to be controlling atleast one character always. its not autobattle where you hit the command auto battle and it plays for you.

now the only game that could do that is ff12. gambit system made even your main play by itself, that was bad lol
DragonKnight  +   841d ago
"How the hell do you control 4 characters at the same time without AI?"

What does that have to do with anything? I never argued the absence of AI.

You said "you can't have auto-battle in an action-RPG" and I provided a system that can allow auto-battle in an action-RPG. You think it's not possible to implement a command structured AI combat mechanic? Like the FFXII gambit system, all you need is to set "attack closest enemy" and the AI could take over completely and there's your auto-battle. So the phrase "you can't have auto-battle in an action-rpg" is wrong.

I trust it only because Nomura's name is behind it. That is the ONLY reason I trust this game. Enix has run the once "king of RPGs" company into the ground, and they really don't have my support any longer. The only man at that company with any sense left is Tetsuya, and in my opinion he's the only thing keeping it alive. They already lost the amazing Sakaguchi and legendary Uematsu, if Nomura goes that's the end of the road for them.

I understand there are some who like FFXIII and XIII-2, but seriously, they have NOTHING on the older FF games, and you can't even compare them.
Son_Lee  +   842d ago
Almost no game ever lives up to THIS much hype. With that being said, if anyone can do it, it's Nomura. And if he has been working on it for this many years, it's hard to say it won't be perfect and he put his heart and soul into this project.

But Square needs to stop overworking him. Maybe they secretly know he's the only talent on that staff.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   842d ago

As long as FFVS13 has a great story people won't call it a disappointment just because it didn't live up to the 6 years of hype it currently has.

You know square enix. They've been quite fond with the 360 support this gen. And knowing ms, they probably wouldnt want this game a ps3 exclusive.

That would honestly be the last straw for me. I rarely play JRPG's except for the FF series and FFXIII was a huge disappointment, XIII-2 was disappointing as well so if this game really does go on 360 im not even going to bother with it. Although I do have confidence in Tetsuya Nomura, He already stated that the game is being developed for PS3 only so I hope they make the game so huge that they just cannot possibly port it on 360.
Godmars290  +   842d ago
The problem with it being on the 360, just like XIII before it, is that there'll be a major question about a compromise of quality.
pwnmaster3000  +   842d ago
Yeah I totally agree with both of you.
I like the 360 and all, but I remember reading an article along, long time ago stating that ff13 had to have some stuff cut out for the 360.
It was on n4g. Not gonna look for it.
tiffac008  +   841d ago
Ill be pretty piss if ms is the reason for the delay.
That's my main worry too, if they do plan to make it multiplat (and knowing Wada, I'm sure he will) at least get it out on the PS3 first and not delay the game just to get it out on both platforms at the same time.

We've been waiting for too long for this game :(

Edit: I just remembered we don't even have Type-0 for the English speaking market yet... @_@;;

I just hate Microsoft's policy about how multiplats have to be equal or better on their system. Last gen x box had clearly superior graphics, imagine if they had to dumb it down to ps2 quality.
If its multiplat things will get cut unfortunately and I wont be buying it.
PersonaCat  +   842d ago
See thats the thing, people automatically call people who don't want this game on xbox fanboys. I wouldnt have a problem with it if the quality of the game wouldn't suffer. I didn't care when I heard that 13 was going multiplat. I did care when that article came out saying that they basically cut out half of the content. They may have not specified it being because of being multiplat but come on. I feel any game that was once exclusive loses its quality when it goes multiplat.
Lilioups  +   842d ago
Dude check the game...its impossible not to cut stuff if its going on the 360 also....

Everything looks a tons more better than ff13 and its OPEN WORLD...they WILL CUT stuff if its going multi....and nomura will be pissed.

I hope it does not come on the 360...if ppl want it buy a ps3 simple
ShaunCameron  +   842d ago
@ Lilioups

<if ppl want it buy a ps3 simple>

Notice this only applies to 3rd party PS3 exclusives, but when it comes to 3rd party XBox 360/Wii exclusives (the worthwhile ones that is) PS3 owners be crying about how they should be multiplatform so "everyone could get a chance to enjoy it." C'mon! Can't have it both ways.
Horny  +   841d ago
Im sorry shaun but never once have I seen the ps3 fanboys say that, Ive seen them talk shit about the game but not saying it should be on ps3 so everyone can enjoy it.
I do think most multiplatform games should be able to be enjoyed by everyone. Certain games however I want more content from. I dont like being promised a bunch of crap or teased with videos and tailers and then it gets taken away.

A game is not ruined by going multiplat. It is the same game in essence, even if they had to scale back the visuals or whatever. Can you go back and play FFVII and still feel its charm after all these years? If yes, obviously, it doesn't matter.
Omnislash  +   842d ago
Thats different. Imagine FFVII becoming multiplat at the last minute, what kind of things do you think they would have needed to do to make it work on the N64.

See if FF13 would have stayed exclusive to PS3 it would probably be one of the better games out there, I dont know about you but I want this game to actually be the best it can be, and the only way that can happen is if it stays exclusive to PS3, look at all the greatest games this gen, those games are Playstation 3 exclusive.
slaton24  +   841d ago
dude it is ruined..FF13 was going to have towns and stuff like that on it but seeing how the 360 was not able to handle all that storage things had to be cut...when you got storage on a blu-ray disc(correct if wrong) that holds 50gb of info compared to dvd storage things will have to be cut...people wanted metal gear solid 4 on 360 awhile back but could not for if they did it was said to be around 6 disc now imagine final fantasy a much longer and complex game even cuttin stuff out if im right FF13 was 3 disc on 360 while on ps3 both mgs4 and ff13 were just 1 disc....so until next gen when both use blu-ray disc the 360 is causin some things to be cut out of these epic rpgs..btw i own all systems except the vita so i am in now way a fanboy just to let you know..
NeoBasch  +   841d ago
I see what you guys are saying, but I think devs are capable of doing exactly what you guys are asking for on both systems. Believe it or not, most games do not go over 20 gigs. If they do, it's usually because of uncompressed audio (PS3) or duplication of game data for faster loading. If you took these away, you'd probably be left with something around 12 GB's. Which if compressed could fit on a DVD.

I do believe Square is doing just fine. The visuals whether on PS3 or 360 still look better than a majority of games currently out on the market. That takes talent. We've already seen screens and videos of FFvXIII. If they decide to make it multiplat it will likely look the same.

Perhaps they will have to scale back towns and all that, which were pretty repetitive and boring I might add in the older Final Fantasy's (hardly any towns contributed to the game's story/narrative). Besides, XIII-2 does have towns. Lots of people you can talk to. Interesting side quests that make you do more than scan or land on a planet and shoot things (I'm looking at you Mass Effect, lol).

I don't see much to complain about. Have you guys even played XIII-2?
TheRealHeisenberg  +   841d ago
If SE was to make the came for 360, could they make it for download only to get around the storage issue? I know that would mean that every 360 owner would have to have that proprietary HDD and some would say it would segment the 360 user base but I think they are already doing that with Kinect only games and to an extent with Live Gold and Silver.

Q:How Can Final Fantasy Versus XIII Not be a Disappointment?

A:Remove Final Fantasy AND XIII from the title.

With No Expectations and No Hype to live up to it just may get a fair review.
DigitalRaptor  +   842d ago
This is the most real point that has been made thus far. Between the people complaining that it's taking too long, and those saying that it will be amazing, somewhere people forgot to let their expectations and hype just go.

If you take away all expectations and the fact that it was announced back in 2006, and refer to it as standalone JRPG "VERSUS", then I think those who are criticizing it, might have a different impression of it, when it actually comes out. Of course it's a 'Final Fantasy' game, but that's only because it's tied to the Fabula Nova Crystallis Mythology and is situated at Square Enix HQ!

There's a weird stigma about games that have long development cycles and it's bogus (aside from games that have weird productions such as Duke Nukem Forever, where the game switched between 3 different development teams over the course of around 11-12 years). It's only the fault of the person hyping it up if they are disappointed after hyping it up themselves. The biggest problem is people not managing their expectations.

I'm honestly half expecting the next article to read "How can The Last Guardian not be a disappointment?"

DigitalRaptor  +   842d ago
It shouldn't be a disappointment if you know all about it, if you trust Nomura who has a proven track record. I'm still excited for it because I understand the scope of the game and what Nomura is trying to produce without the fat cats at Square trying to make the most money. So essentially my main hope for this game, like others have said is Nomura-san and his singular vision with the help of a great team, who hopefully won't get drafted off again to work on another stupid project that shouldn't take more importance than a game that has been in development for too many years.

"Versus doesn't simply carry the weight of six years of expectation"

Versus XIII's long development is a fault of Square Enix. The fact that is has been delayed and pushed aside for other projects that are seen as being higher priority is Square Enix's fault, not Nomura's who only wants what's best for his vision. What I can ask of all of you guys is to just forget that you've been waiting for 6 years. Forget that Square Enix has f*cked up priorities. They announced the game too damn early. It really is just as simple as that!!!

To add, just look at what we know about Versus XIII (a damn lot considering..) and XIII/XIII-2. Take the feature for feature sets of each game and compare them. The quality of storytelling and characters. There is a HUGE difference. XIII and XIII-2 were reaching for the Moon, whilst Versus appears to be reaching for the Sun.

The question I can't believe isn't being asked is "How can Final Fantasy Versus XIII be a disappointment, when compared to the two XIII games that preceded it?".

A good sign would be that Agito is well received in Japan.
And this is one of the projects he is working alongside versus and Parasite Eve. Now that he has only Versus to focus on, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt.

Also, I am not the one behind the disagrees. Not giving them out anyway.

final fanatsy vs 13 is not coming to the 360 just buy a ps3 if you want to play ffvs13.

"How can FFVSXIII not be a dissapointment"

If the first million copies are literally stick up Yoichi Wada's rectum, THEN I won't be dissapointed.

FF w/o Hironobu Sakaguchi is not an FF, that's the conclusion I came up with after try to understand what's the reason FF suck after FFX and after Squaresoft marge with Enix and the answer is simple Sagakuchi left after FFX so the merge with Enix was not the prob but the departure of the Father of Final Fantasy, this man was behind all the gr8 Final Fantasy games, he help with design, direction and write the story w/o him in the wheel there is no meaning to talk about Final Fantasy anymore FF die when Mr Sagakuchi left, THE END.

I agree about Sakaguchi. He needs to come back to sony and bring back the series. Though I do believe Tetsuya Nomura will do an amazing job with his ideas in mind.

I KNOW WHY!
Because it wont have anything to do with the 360!

Why would this be a failure. This is square enix were talking about. They haven't failed with a game yet. SO why would they start now? Well, with the final fantasy series. They haven't failed yet. Can't say anything about there other games though. Can't wait for versus xiii

The last good final fantasy game was final fantasy 9 which is also my favorite one. ff10 was ok but I hated the voice acting and that awkward laughing scene. I hated 12 because the battle system felt too much like an mmo which sucks.
