Well this game might suck because of that. Everything this man touch is gold in the gaming world

We'll see what happens. Square just has so many problems nowadays.

Isn't the game done already?

Sharingan_no_Kakashi4401d ago (Edited 4401d ago )

Then that guy was telling the truth!!! Holy Crap...if he was right about that then he could've been right about Nomura leaving Square Enix soon. That's bad....that's really bad.

Edit: Oh wait nevermind. I misread the title. More tired than i thought.

The development team is probably done with the major design aspects that he was working on. Now he can focus on FFv13, and help them finish that up.

Seems like good prioritizing on his part.

rayjelic4401d ago (Edited 4401d ago )

Actually they called him and his team in to help with this project so now that his part is done, he can go back where he's really needed. Shoot if you ask me they should just scrap the XIII project and continue development on Verses/

SaiyanFury4401d ago

First Sakaguchi and now the possibility of Nomura leaving. I wonder what his reasons are for leaving the FFXIII project. If it has to do at all with S-E's business practises, they'd better look long and hard at how they operate if they hope to keep their best talent.

Greek994401d ago

Omg... my heart stopped beating for a second. I thought he wasn't working FFV13 no more. What a relief....

The Great Melon4401d ago (Edited 4401d ago )

Likewise, I thought he wasn't working on FFVXIII anymore when I read that title. Nearly had an aneurysm there.

JoySticksFTW4401d ago

Nomura certainly wasn't happy when XIII went multi-platform

His heart seems to be all about FFvXIII now

I dunno if FFXIII is gonna be that good... but maybe he's already finished with his input with XIII, so he can focus on vXIII now

gaffyh4400d ago

Best news ever. Now he can get to work on Versus and hopefully that drops in 2010

The characters design are done so well yeah, he's done with FFXIII. Besides its a good thing isn't? Now, he can totally concentrate on Versus for his heart content and our too :)

Tito Jackson4400d ago

He's not the only creative genius out there.

14 year-old playstation fanboys sure are funny.

Pika-pie4400d ago (Edited 4400d ago )

Oh dear, thats like MGS without Kojima...

Lukily his influences will be present as the game must be quite far on.. Hes done his work so to speak. Should still be a great game

pain777pas4400d ago

In other words "now whoever made this deal with M$ you port the game over I want nothing to do with it" lol. Versus is his only focus now and it looks like a winner.

cherrypie4400d ago

Sakaguchi-san == Final Fantasy. Nomura is irrelevant.

Want to play some epic JRPG? Pick up Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey. Any fan of JRPG will love them.

GUNS N SWORDS4401d ago (Edited 4401d ago )

so there goes ff13 vs, it's now being done by someone else.


nvm, yeah i read it like twice, it doesn't say what he's doing right now or next though, it's not descriptive.

Obama4401d ago

Please learn to read..?

Sony Rep4401d ago

He was never a central part of XIII's development

Shang-Long4401d ago

I think he did his job already and now can focus on his work
