Nomura confirms more details regarding PS3-exclusive, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, including relationships of some characters, new gameplay interactivity and improved graphics.
Just gotta say, this is sound like more and more of an amazing game.
this seems to getting better and better. steadily moving towards my must buy list. now that 2011 is out of question I am hoping it is released early 2012
And a release date both for Japan, Europe, and the States would be awesome. Imagine everyone playing this game at the same time and no would have to wait 6 months.
I wonder if Square is cable of releasing it with the same quality as first party PS3 exclusives. They where responsible for some of the best PSX and PS2 games quality and graphics wise I wonder if there able to recapture that.
Graphically, it's going to be beast no doubt. And, gameplay-wise it looks to be killer as well with its Kingdom Hearts style of combat. I can't wait, but it's likely gonna be late 2011, early 2012 before it comes out sadly. :(
It's gonna look even better than what they showed???!! *dies*
forget that, he said we might see it at e3 this year, that's awesome. he keeps mentioning it, imo that means it's a certainty.
nowhere in the article is vsXIII stated as "PS3-exclusive" and I really don't see the point in you listing it as such. I hate the idea as much if not more than any FF fan who happens to be a PS3-only owner - about S/E d*cking everyone concerned on the subject - but I hate the actual fanboyism inaccuracy even more.
It has been PS3 exclusive from day one and until they say otherwise it will remain so and thats why its listed as such. Even the last trailer showed "for PS3" at the end,no other platforms.
Yea there really is no fanboyism going on here. It's still officially a ps3 exclusive game. I think you read a little more into the title than you should have...
"for ps3" isnt the same as "only for ps3" and that doesnt mean much either cause FF13 trailers said the same thing. Only 2 3rd party exclusive that I cant think of that have stayed exclusive is mgs4 and GoW 1&2
@thats_just_prime Actually, there's quite a few 3rd party titles (1 from Square Enix themselves) that have stayed exclusive to 1 console: Blue Dragon Last Remnant Lost Odyssey Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Splinter Cell Conviction
@thats_just_prime Except you are speculating, I mean they have never mentioned X360 and FFXIII was announced for X360 long before we got to see big trailers for it so I don't get why this is an issue, its exclusive as of now and until further notice should be stated as such not guesses and speculations.
@thats_just_prime I don't care what console it's on. I just want it.
Remember in older final fantasy games you could run around in the live amv cutscenes. This time it returns + you can take action firing shots etc.
There really pushing the PS3 for this arn't they :)
I really wish someone would just straight out ask, "Is this a world-wide PS3 exclusive". I'd like to know whether or not I should continue caring about this game.
If it wasnt a world-wide exclusive to ps3, it wouldnt change the quality of the game since they are sticking with quality with this final fantasy game because of how to their fans+newcomers square enix lost their way. Now they want to gain it back.
You can't be 100% sure about that. I'd rather it stayed exclusive just to be safe.
It would change the quality of the game. We already saw that SE can't make a multiplatform Final Fantasy without cutting corners this generation. I'd prefer if they made the largest, most beautiful game possible on the PS3, then cut and fit what they can for other versions. I don't want another FFXIII.
I curious to see what they do with the gun fighting.
well auto target in normal cases AND Manual aiming if available .
***Nomura reconfirms that there may be an E3 showing for the game.*** This is both good and bad...
The good gameplay in action showing off battle-system. The bad he taps someone on the shoulder at microsoft press conference, Announcing its coming to 360 as well but this would be for extra sales no content would be cut from the game + itll have to be on multiple discs in order to keep the quality of the game intact.
@Lirky Do you know that going multiplat will have no effect ont the quality of the title because history would completly disagree with you. I personally don't mind it going multiplat but only after it's been released on the PS3 and is then ported over to the 360... ...I can not stand shitty ports caused by co-development done at the same time which causes the resources to be split up instead of focused on one platform. The need to get it out to everyone at the same time has a super high price which is unacceptable and that is QUALITY!!!
(tear)...........just bring thing game out already!!
ffvs is going to rule!!
***Combo attacks change depending on the selection of weapons.*** What what WTF?! COMBO ATTACKS? Chrono Trigger style combos? AWESOMENESS
"-You can switch between any of the characters during battle." This is great news, I thought that you couldn´t
I wanna touch the environment, explore, discover, build, improve my characters/weapons, armour. This game delivers, it'll no doubt, be the best of all. Remember folks, this time round we're looking at a more mature, miserable story. Thank you Nomura-San, no more puppy love and rainbows and more importantly no VANILLEEEEE!!!! Peace everybody!
Improved graphics....sounds good. I thought FFXIII had some of the best graphics to date
I swear graphics better not be the only thing they work on, if so then I have no comment on this game.
@THILLREBORN "Do you know that going multiplat will have no effect ont the quality of the title because history would completly disagree with you". Um Final Fantasy XIII was ps3 exclusive with all the content data to make it a beginning,middle,ending final fantasy but Square enix said that they had more content for the game but couldnt cram it in there.. and everyone knows its because of 360s disc capabilities. Thats why ffxiii-2 was the content that was supposidly the content that they left out thats why they had to make a sequel.
@Lirky Think about it tho why make a sequel if FF7-9 had multiple discs IMO if even if the disc were blu-ray/Dvd or w/e 360 discs are they could have expanded the game and created multiple discs that would have thrown 13 off the chart and brought SE back to the middle instead of the bottom, I am all for a sequel if they would have had multiple disc for the first FFXIII. 3 disc based for FFXIII that is the way to go for a epic FF game.
finally a final fantasy that makes me extremely excited! my favourite is ff8 don't hate but it was my first FF game and loved it, FF13 not so much lol
That's my favorite ff game as well. FF8 was the pinnacle of the ff series i think. They did everything pretty much right in that game and also innovated in many areas. Graphics, music, story and emotion as well as gameplay and length were beautiful and not to mention they took a lot of risks with directing it. It was like the rennaissance man of the ff series.
FF8 is also my favorite in the series and my first FF, too bad its shadowed by FF7
