FF Versus XIII reports "are false"

Eurogamer reports: "Square Enix has rubbished suggestions that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is on hold. "Reports that development for Final Fantasy Versus XIII is on hold are false," the publisher said in a statement passed on to Eurogamer.

"The truth of the situation is that when free, some staff from the Versus team have been helping with the XIII team on development of Final Fantasy XIII. Development for both titles is continuing as originally scheduled."

That rather significantly contradicts translations of game director Tetsuya Nomura's comments in a Famitsu article, where he reportedly used the words "on hold" and said "the entire Versus team is helping to finish Final Fantasy XIII".

You still suck Eurogamer!

deeznuts4436d ago

Lol, we're all thinking the same thing. First thing I thought was, "don't care until you tell me your MGS4 score was false!"

But I don't need them to tell me that!


I can see people getting "on hold" where it was "when free" (refering to the devs free time of Versus), and the entire team is not necessarily untrue, since the entire team can have free time... But really, my japanese sucks... So it can just be what the first guy traduced correctly and Eurogamer maybe is just being an @ss again.

good:) because im really looking forward to this one:) its a lot less girly(dont wana sound sexist but it is):) and its alot darker and it aint a full JRPG which i am very happy about:)

Fishy Fingers4436d ago

WooHoo, that's good news for me as I've always been more interested in Versus.

Britjadg4436d ago

genuine question here: why?

not alot of info out there on versus, hell the the info on ffXIII is scare enough.

Wildarmsjecht4436d ago

I kinda agree with Fishy, although both have day one purchases from me. But Versus has this dark and gritty world surrounding it, with a shady protagonist that u just WANT to find out more about. I think he;s a prince and his kingdom is one of the few that has a crystal and the whole world is at war over them. But the battle sequence itself reminded me of KH2 last battle area. Cannot wait.

Fishy Fingers4436d ago

LOL... You want to know why I'm more interested in Versus, read Wildarmsjecht's comment, it pretty much sums it up.

Plus, (dont hate me) I'm not a huge fan of turn based combat, hopefully Versus will be a little more action orientated.

Both day one though. Id buy a FF game just for their CGI, I love it so much :)

Diugu4436d ago

... and play the hell out of them.

These are the games I am expecting the most.. even more than MGS4. Even though, now that I played it a little, I think it is very difficult to make me enjoy anything more than MGS4.

am (BRITJADG) on mates account coz my login is being gay. cant get on?

@ Wildarmsjecht, have seen the video (or at least i think i've seen the one ur talking about - is it the one with him walking down some stairs from his throne with loads of "troopers" shooting at him?

the only reason i ask about preference for versus over ffXIII is that other than both seem to use the white engine and a couple of pics, i really haven't seen any more info out there. thought there might be something key that i had missed.


Wildarmsjecht4436d ago

lol @ the irony of your name and you using another persons username :P all in jest, just thought that was kinda funny. Sometimes the login does act hella [email protected] tho.

I don't remember where i read the kingdom information and the war over the crystals, i wish i knew cuz it'd give me a better understanding obviously. I'll search around and link it when i can. But yea that traile with him fighting all the soldiers, and the screenshots of another person, a girl i believe, beign involved got me hooked. Especially the fight sceen. It was like KH2 with FF7 AC wrapped in FF3/6 story line. Bad.Ass.

Pornlord4436d ago

I'd like to say I'm looking forward to one more than the other, but honestly, which ever one comes out first is the one I'll get. Then I'll get the other. I just can't let good RPG's slip through my collection. I still pay suikoden and Chrono trigger from time to time hahah

Britjadg4436d ago

genius wasn't it? i hadn't even considered the irony until you mentioned it!

if you do find that stuff will you let me know? i am an avid FF fan and all info on these games should be required by law!

p.s. thanks to dec for letting me use his account! have a bubble fella.

As long as development on both seems to be going fine then I'm okay, I just want to see some new footage on both XIII titles and a possible release date.

meepmoopmeep4436d ago

i like the idea that the Versus team is helping the XIII team to get the product finished faster, and vice versa.

i'm hoping for a release date announcement at E3
