I like how you can use the environment in battle to your advantage, game's looking great so far.

blitz06232828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Nice... reminds me of Kingdom Hearts and Crisis Core combined. Graphics are... incredible.

But the truth is everything we see here is similar to what we saw in XIII until the first review came in and talked about linearity. I hope they release sometime in the future a trailer that guarantees this won't be linear and all the stuff that made XIII terrible

FarEastOrient2828d ago

Now this looks like a Final Fantasy Game! Bring back the power of Square Soft, Square Enix we know you have some where hidden.

Dragun6192828d ago

Holy sheit, Finally, some new Footage and gameplay for Versus XIII. If I was there at the event, I would have of clapped the hell out this at the end of the trailer especially since I feel that SE's quality has dropped a lot since it's PS1&2 days. It actually looked like a Final Fantasy game that looked epic and one that I can imagine myself enjoying.

Now where's the release date?

midgard2272828d ago

square-soft is left sleeping remnant inside tetsuya nomura, and with this game the beast is awakening from its long slumber!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ff13zero, verus and 13-2 I CANNOT WAIT!

badz1492828d ago

looks good and reminds me a lot of KH! as long as it's not a corridor RPG, I think I'm in. I'll look close into this until release and hope that is will deliver! this year hopefully

ComboBreaker2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

I remembered, playin FF8, half of the fun comes from seeing the incredible FMV.

But, holy sh*t!!! That's some incredible FMV in Versus! It's unlike the FMV in 13. 13 didn't wow me like at all.

Modern day Japan-like city. Badass bosses. Badass characters. Kingdom Heart like gameplay. This is going to be the sh*t.

rigid body furniture realistic behaviour DAMN man, and interactive water physics(watch ripples generating)... hurray!!!


Nomura later commented, in an interview conducted via Twitter, that players will be able to control an airship around the world map.

The game will feature large open fields which allow players to walk through almost anything on the field apart from the mountains. Nomura has also mentioned that the fields are truly vast and that it was very far to traverse from one end to another;[12] thus, to facilitate easy navigation, the game will feature the return of vehicles such as an airship[13] as well as a car, allowing players to easily traverse the large fields.[12]

Battles will take place in real-time environments using all regions of the field, from up high buildings to down low streets. Nomura said that the game will feature battles that take place in areas with great differences in height, as shown in the trailer, and the players will have to fight using the full environment. This means fighting what's in front, as well as above and below (vertical battles).[14]

One of the trailers show Noctis selecting from a number of different weapons to defeat the enemy soldiers in front of him. The various weapons in the game will have different methods of attack, and some will even be usable as shields to go along with Noctis's crystal power. Weapons will have some sort of customization element as well. The trailer also showed Noctis warping around killing enemies. Nomura explained that players won't be able to warp freely to every spot but will be able to warp to the location where the sword is placed. This is one area that is being tested on so it's a matter of time to see if this all makes it into the final product. Summon beasts are in the game and will have to be defeated to be used. Nomura has also said that the game will have Sixaxis support but has given no specifics about it

So we know there are towns, open map, airships, etc. but does anyone know if there is any info on NPCs to talk to and get side quests from and if there will be store fronts to make purchases in the towns (unlike the save point storefront in 13). Just curious... I haven't heard anything.

ThanatosDMC2828d ago

Finally a true FF game... unless we get SE shafted again.

rockleex2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Can I say inspired by Uncharted 2 during some of those gameplay sequences?

By the way, the FMV looks... so... REAL!!! @[email protected]

Denethor_II2828d ago

"Finally a true FF game... unless we get SE shafted again. "

Lets hope SE lube up first because that would be one hell of a shafting.

DORMIN2828d ago

That was spectacular! Why is this called 13-VS? This should be FF15.

I got the same chills from this video from when I first saw the FF7 trailer

HolyOrangeCows2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

WOAH!!! actually HAS combat now :P
As opposed to semi-interactive cutscenes.

deafwing2828d ago

SE can only go wrong now; the path is righteous so far.

Whitefox7892828d ago


Don't you remember the other trailer that came out? That showed Noctis walking around Jumping and then he fought the Behmoth? In Famitsu they had a FAQ with Nomura where he said, "If you can see it, you can walk to it." Not to mention he said their will be a world map with vehicles and airships.

doa7662828d ago

let's hope it stays PS3 exclusive, the notion of a 360 version gimping down this game is almost blaphemy

The GFX,the music and Gameplay all just WOW.

Simon_Brezhnev2828d ago

This is now my most anticipated game. I love this damn trailer cant wait for a HD version. This trailer makes FF13-2 looks absolutely stupid.

clank5432828d ago

Its too bad it has 13 in the title. They should have just called it FF Versus or FF Versus Reality or something.

PHOSADRA2828d ago

I bet they're saying some pretty Epic stuff while they're fighting O.O

40cal2828d ago

Hell yeah that was sick. This is how you do a game for your fans.

Simply amazing! I was blown away by that clip! This is the game that will bring back Square Enix on the map of greatness!

karl2828d ago

i really hope for that..

if they succeed that will show them what dedication and quality can do for them

and not all those rushout products that they have been releasing lately

now.. the graphics.. just wow!!!! that scene with stella look so much better than the last time we saw it...

and the clothes .. damn it looks fantastic, the explotions are amazing aswell

tablav2828d ago

I agree...but what year?

FarEastOrient2828d ago

Release date December 21 2012 ^_^ lol

Commander_TK2828d ago


I guess I have to beat it b4 we all die then.

DigitalAnalog2828d ago

What happened was, Nomrua dropped development as soon as it was slated to be multiplat. It was originally intended to be an open-world game to begin with and since this game is run under him, we can be rest assured all promises on FFXIII should be applied here.

-End of line

Otheros002828d ago

Nomura only design the characters for xiii. He was never in charge of xiii but versus xiii.

RedDead2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Interpreting the Forest bit where the kid runs up to his dad, must be Noctis Almost dying, that's what they have oto do to get powers, his dad might have put him in that state :)

Also at the end, the two old men, the kings assassination, Noctis dad dies ;)

Noct looks Very japanese now too

Clarence2828d ago

My god if this game comes out this year! I hope M$ has something up their sleeve. Sony is definitely not playing around.

Crystallis2828d ago

I think they will release it late this year in Japan and summer in the states in 2012 hopefully.

By the way did you see when they arrived at the toll booth? I know its CG but it looked damn like real life. I need this game now.

Myze2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Obviously it could be out the window now, but they stated a while (long while now) back that the game would get a worldwide release date. Hopefully that will still hold true, and hopefully by the end of this year.

Anyway, glad to see they have been working, because the game looks great in graphics, intensity and size. Also, the gameplay looks to be incredibly varied, which is a nice touch (as long as it all works well).

Crystallis2828d ago

Now this is a true Final Fantasy from what i'm seeing so far.

doG_beLIEfs2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Ladies and gentlemen....Tetsuya Nomura and Sony presents you the Final Fantasy by the PS3, of the PS3, and FOR the PS3.

If this does not tell you that FF13 was dumbed down considerably for the 360....then there is no hope for you.


baodeus2828d ago

so what happen if this go multiplatform? Would you take back your word? And i don't think you have any clue of what available on x360 to make such comment. Haven't u learn anything from FF13? You might jump off the roof or something if that does happen. Control yourself man, jeez.

Games look good though, hopefully we get to see more.

MariaHelFutura2828d ago

That`s one of the best thing I`ve ever seen in my life. This has potential to be my favorite RPG of all time.

Eyeco2828d ago

the graphics in that pre rendered scene were AMAZING!!!

yoshiro2828d ago

want want want want.
looks incredible ... I want to see more soon

fatstarr2828d ago

DAY 1 Exclusive.
hopefully SE wont eff it up.
but that might be wishing for too much

iamtehpwn2828d ago

Look at the scene where Noctis and Stella are talking. This is confirmed Real time as we've seen this trailer before in real time. Compare this to the original trailer.

The original was on par with Final Fantasy XIII. But the graphics now are outstanding. Look at the quality of the skin and hair, and the beautiful Lighting. Miles beyond XIII and the original Versus XIII real time showing. Not to mention, Nomura confirmed, what we're seeing is an older build before major graphics update! This is only possible on PS3.

gam3fr33k2828d ago

seriously? why are they even bothering putting resources into ff13-2? what's worse is 13-2 is coming out this year instead of this...year's still early though, hopefully we get a release date

Prototype2828d ago

Look its L from Death Note, and hes still alive :O

I'm amped to play this now, this is how 13 should have been, day 1 for me

CryWolf2828d ago

Now! this is what I call a Final Fantasy game why couldn't FFXIII be like this the real NEXT-GEN Final Fantasy experience.

garos822828d ago

Maybe the JPRG genre just got hit by a shot of adrenaline. Hopefully this is one of many others to come.


infamous-butcher2828d ago

This looks nothing like a JRPG. It looks more like a DMC.

Zorda20972828d ago

Well if it is even a little bit like DMC then it helps us get over DMC5 :)

blackpanther252828d ago

obviously someone here hasn't played kingdom hearts or crisis core cause it looks exactly like those two games combined

Snake-eater2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

the gameplay clip looks amazing unlike any other FF game
