The secret ending of Kingdom Hearts 3's ReMind DLC is leading fans to believe development of Final Fantasy Versus XIII is not actually dead.
I wish Like, honestly, if they didn't do ANY of the DLC stuff for FFXV and just decided to put their resources into making a game where the events of FFXV played out completely different in an alternative world, with the game also hinting at other Final Fantasy games having their own universe (like the multiverse) it could have been great. Rebrand the game Final Fantasy XV: Versus
I thought Versus(formerly a PlayStation exclusive) was scraped and its assets absorbed into FFXV...
It was but what’s the point your making There’s a ton of things cut from Versus and the battle system seemed faster as well It was a completely different game
Fox, My point is Versus as concept and a game is done, its over.
Not quite. Many if the names and character designs seem to be the primary thing it took, as well as some character relations. If you check the story bits from versus trailers and compare them to Xv, it is pretty obvious they completely changed it
Vsxiii battle system looked like a more action styled battle system. While it looked good. The main complaint outside that horrible chapter and missing parts to the story was it’s action styled system. That should be even worse vsxiii isn’t happening and ppl are silly to even remotely believe it’s coming back. It wouldn’t even be the same vs13
A lot of the original ffxiii lore that versus was based on still exists in fox. At least in the main game, not sure about the dlc. That lore was never fully explored in ffxiii's main story, so it may not have been as obvious. If you consider the extended, or mutilated lore of the sequels, then yeah, it's a different game. I think the biggest change to make it into a new ff15 was the relationship of the characters to the world of death, as that was a pretty strong theme of 13, but nonexistent in 15. Otherwise, yeah, much of the design, and I'd imagine a good number of the assets were taken from versus.
Verum Rex is in Kingdom Hearts 3. Yozora being a secret boss was inevitable. Although Verum Rex has a lot of things that looks like versus XII did and Nomura can't seem to let it go Verum Rex also has a lot that's different. For reference: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Let it die. We don't want leftovers.
We got left overs with FF15 so...
@foxtrot What? FF15 is still FF15 regardless if its the original legacy game or the reboot. The reboot is part of the LORE. Its not left over, its the same setting, eorzea, and same continuation from point A. If you were a legacy account, meaning you played the original game, the NPCs would literally recognize you towards the of ARR. Versus wasn't even completed. A lot of it was scrapped and rehashed into a different story entirely. Even the main female lead got replaced.
@Stopac you seem to have XIV and XV mixed up.
Nomura wont let it go. Its happening.
@ratty HAHA I DO HAVE THEM MIXED UP!! omg I’m sorry I dunno why you’re getting downvoted. You’re absolutely right! I’m sorry I’m tired. Y’all need to upvote that man. I’m a dumbus.
Simple answer, no its not
I wouldn't dismiss it so fast, leaker who said there was going to be a Versus XIII world in Kingdom Hearts 3 before it was revealed said Final Fantasy Versus XV is in development and that its going for Nomuras original vision of the game and the leak was years ago
No it isn’t.
Let it go.
Can't hold me back anymore.
No use hiding it "Elda". I see you, Elsa.
lol wtf?no it's not
If there's any truth to this, then there's some kind of pissing contest going on at Square.
Tabata, the one who directed 15, left Square already. but i agree. this whole thing, if true, is so pitiful
Nomura still pushing to get "his" version of the game out despite the game effectively being out?
Kill it, kill it, kill it. Give me FF16 and the FF7R games. Let the past die.
Isn't FF7 is far more "past" than FFVrXIII
Would be, if it was still a turn based rather than action game.
FF7R may be based on a past title but it is showing a future for a brand that has been in development hell. The battle system is a perfect reimagining of their best systems combined. Versus is a failed idea that kept them from making new mainline FF titles for 10 years. FF7 was the future in 1997 and is the future now. Versus never was and never will be.
Versus eventually became FF15. Anyone writing about games would hopefully know this.
Final Fantasy Versus XIII was just a concept while Final Fantasy XV is an actual game. What’s the point of deliberating over this concept for so long? You don’t see people hoping that concepts for previous Final Fantasy games be made into a game. I’m glad that it was turned into FFXV because Nomura stated on multiple occasions that serious work on KH3 wouldn’t happen until he was done with FFvXIII. When Hajime Tabata took over that meant Nomura could focus more on KH3 and deliver the game that much sooner. This also meant he could focus on FFVIIR that much sooner as well. That’s a way better alternative to waiting for Nomura to finally release FFvXIII and put all those other projects on further hold.
No but I can see Verum Rex becoming an actual game although it wont be exactly what Versus 13 was about.
I still remember the Versus xiii trailers (and the xv trailers with all the cool shit not in the final game) and cry at night that it never came to be. If nomura is bringing it back through future KH games then I'm all for it. I was hype as hell seeing the secret movie resemble that old Versus xiii trailer
I wonder if many of the above read the article or played KH3 to understand the question here. Nomura is clearly salty about not being able to make his dream game. And I'm pretty sure he knows that loads of FF fans were sorely disappointed by the end result that was FF15. I think it's very possible that dozens of Nomura's ideas and concepts that did not make the cut in FF15 will be seeing some form in Kingdom Hearts 4. The DLC has made it clear that Verum Rex isn't just an obvious cameo. Yozora was voiced by a known Disney actor and is the final boss in the DLC. There's also the ending cutscene which is almost an exact copy of one of the old FFvs13 trailers - the one where Noctis is sleeping in his car as it arrives into the capital city. Nomura may even take the opportunity to radically change up the Kingdom Hearts series in the next game. I hope he gets rid of the Disney planets/worlds concept and instead focus on making one huge open-world full of Disney characters and lore within it.
Thought Versus XIII evolved into what XV became.
It did happen.
Isn't XV what VS XIII turned into? If so, no...but actually yes since it already happened.
The unused assets not used will be now introduced into KH.
I mean... I literally heard that the development morphed and changed into what we now know as FF15. I dont know if its a matter of "Still it just no longer was 13, and became the next numbered iteration (non multiplayer) after 13, 15.
didn't this become FFXV?
seriously, let FFXV and what is left of VS13 just die... start over, do it right this time.
