Final Fantasy XIII Screens Give Hope and Vanille

SCRAWL: "Eighteen new screenshots of Square Enix's upcoming role-playing game, Final Fantasy XIII, have been released today. The new high-definition shots display a lot of Hope and Vanille, showing them in cut-scenes and in battle. They seem to have some sort of relationship with each other, although I'm not quite sure what it is."

i was more exited for that game then ff13, sinse the first time i saw both of them.
what happen to that game, but that looks dope

umm what are you talking, why do you sound like i was down playing this game. i still like this game. im no fanboy i hate them especially 360 fanboys. i was just saying how i liked versus better and was wondering where it was and actually your wrong agian, ff 13 looks like any other ff game, imean the main looks like Yuna kinda, while ffv13 went to a more darker and mature game, with a way different gameplay from any other ff game, well from wat the devs said. So if you want to talk about generic then ff13 is the one more generic.

and to tell you the truth both games are doing something new to the ff series so stfu and stop acting like a douche

Natsu X FairyTail3390d ago

I dont like the way Final Fantasy XIII versus is coming out at the moment.

The characters are so generic and the main guy looks like Zach and he looks like Cloud and that's not original.

XIII took another path with more original characters like the Black guy with a baby Chocobo on his head and the leading Female character.

and last time I checked a gameplay video of Final Fantasy everybody was like yeahhhhh looks tight as hell and now because you saw those CGI screens that arent even confirmed to be the new build you guys are like meh meh.


Jmlopezbr3390d ago

@ 1.1 But you can easily compare FFXIII to FFVII... so not as original. I am hyped for both Versus and XIII and probably more so for FFXIII because it is coming out sooner. Both will be great, and of course Versus will look better because it is coming out later and SE will have experience with Crystal Tools and the PS3

Nitrowolf23390d ago

@1.2 i can't wait for that game either
@1 i think versus will be better. ibh i had little interest in ff13 even b4 it went multiplat. The reason why im looking forward to versus more was one im expecting something like ff7 versus, and to it seem like a bit of a darker setting

masterofpwnage3389d ago (Edited 3389d ago )

xdf at its best
i bet you if this wasnt even going to the 360 you guys wouldnt be so hyped for it. i bet some of you are not even gnna buy it your just exited because its on the 360. ha
if thats true get a life guy

oh and the in game screens does look really nice for jrpg.
could be better though.

SaberEdge3389d ago

It looks really great. I am looking forward to this game more than the past few Final Fantasy games.

ABizzel13389d ago (Edited 3389d ago )

@ 1.1
I get what your saying, but I have to say FF13 vs. seems much more interesting to me than FF13. I for one enjoy partaking in the action, so FF13 vs. combat system gives it a huge edge over FF13 in my book. I mean I don't mind selecting my attacks and watching my character whoop @$$, but I'd rather be whooping that @$$ myself :)

But anywho on to what I was about to say. The bad screens we've been seeing make me believe even more that they are from the 360 version, or that Square used CG everything when they were showing off FF13, because these look amazing.

Dragun6193389d ago (Edited 3389d ago )

@ Natsu

Dude, the reason why many people are more interested in Final Fantasy Versus XIII, is because it gives off a more darker epic feeling. I mean have you seen the trailer? Man, First time I saw that trailer, I was like this is Badass. The music alone made feel that this was gonna be epic. It gave me the vibe i felt when saw the FF8 Intro.

Nomura has stated that the game will opt for a darker, bleaker world that is intended to counter previous Final Fantasy installments.
In formulating a realistic world, Nomura has also stated that he wants the characters to be "believable" and thus realistic.

Final Fantasy XIII Versus Theme Song "Somnus"

Final Fantasy XIII looks great whether its CGI or Gameplay but If I had to choose one out of the two, I would definitely chose Versus.

Reibooi3389d ago

I have to say these screens are gorgeous. It really makes me more confident about the game after the recent screenshot controversy we have seen going around. It makes me think that perhaps the game will live up to our expectations and that square is just still in the process of polishing the game as best they can.

coolirisGB3389d ago (Edited 3389d ago )

Only a PS3 fanboy would say that because most people know who's destroying gaming and they are not 360 fanboys.

I'm getting sick of all these speculation stories about pics from the PC build, PC CGI, PC ingame and all the Console, build, console CGI, Console ingame being mixed up and used to attack the 360 or to call out SE. http://play60gamer.wordpres...

NeoCloud3389d ago

No You cant have Vanille she's mine, get away from her Hope, You little Emo kid.Just kiddin, but FF games have always done this, High-Quality graphics for cut-scenes and Low-Quality for the in-game stuffs like battles, exploration etc.

PS. I am sure Vanille and Hope have a brother sister relationship[I Hope].

Final Fantasy XIII Screens Give Disappointment and Mediocrity

Natsu X FairyTail3390d ago

Sad for you because It looks better than White knight Chronicles In Pictures and In Motion.



Nitrowolf23390d ago (Edited 3389d ago )

why did you just compare this to white knight? no one mention whit knight

FF13 having online didn't cross my mind. i guess they have to release a whole new game just to include it

masterofpwnage3390d ago (Edited 3389d ago )

yea your right it does look better but not that much and also just look at whitekight its probably longer and has more features like.
more weapons
a bigger world
character creations
imean shiit
if ff13 had all of that do you think it will still look like that. imean look at it now ff13 got downgraded just by trying to port it to da 360.

here is some video

rukia_chan3389d ago (Edited 3389d ago )

i cant wait for ffversus imo!

NaiNaiNai3389d ago

Because you guys Say WKC is gona kick SE's FF13, in every WKC thread. but when you post pictures of the two together you see how bad WKC really looks.
FF13 *the so called downgraded versio*

If you say WKC looks better your a blind fanboy...

These screens look great! For the people who have all said it would be downgraded look at those screens.

I can't wait to play this game.

cyclindk3389d ago

DID you look at them ALL?!

The cutscene shots, which it seems like they are insinuating are "in-game" look ten times better than the gameplay screens:






foxtheory3389d ago (Edited 3389d ago )

If this is what the game will look like as a finished product, then I don't see why people are complaining. It's shaping up to be a great game, and I'm definitely looking forward to it with an optimistic frame of mind.

Natsu X FairyTail3389d ago

In game graphics looks great and I dont see why people would complain about CGI when you wont be playing "cut scenes"

their just jumped in the wagon to say " X360 gimped the game" obviously.

GUNS N SWORDS3389d ago (Edited 3389d ago )

i don't think it looks bad at all either.

i'm guessing it's the sheer thought of it going multiplat that everything they see becomes crap. (it's like they saw someone take a bite of their food and received it back, it's still the same food but now that someone else got to enjoy it they lost interest in it)

i don't know why it's come down to this,

it's dumb, and every time i see this vid i crack up, the man is in his late 20's.

Jmlopezbr3389d ago (Edited 3389d ago )

Yes I did, and if you didn't know, SE does use different models for their stuff. The gameplay would have always looked as it does. If you disagree go look up the gameplay for the demo and they looked great

Edit: @ below: Yeah the confusion from the different builds does get pretty annoying. Most of the time you can tell.

I actually started playing FFs from XIII, because I found videos on it and then I started playing the older FFs. XII was good and I loved it, but its story was where it failed. So here's hoping that XIII doesn't follow suite.

cyclindk3389d ago

I get what you're saying, but I think this is what so much of the confusion is about, what models are being used and when (high poly or low poly) and which screens are from cut-scenes or in-game and so on.

That's all, not trying to be antagonistic; personally I've only ever played ONE FF game, XII I believe, and it was for about two minutes because I never played and RPG before then, but if I were to get into FF this would be the one I would start with.

Bereaver3389d ago

Those ground textures look HORRIBLE.....


EDIT : In the outside fight.
