A slightly cryptic message from the official Twitter of Square Enix's 1st Production Department, the division that's responsible for all the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts games.
Why do a FFX HD game when you guys still have Versus to finish.....oh and now FFX is being put before FF Versus Christ Sake
Perhaps there's different teams working on both games and FFX HD just happens to have less work to do? I want FFv13 to release ASAP too, but wanted to point out that possibility.
It dosen't matter if theres differen't teams or not, they know for a fact how much people want FF Versus, they should of put the teams together so the development will move along quicker.
You're right....there are different teams working on different projects. People seem to forget SE is broken down into teams of developers rather than one big development team that works on one or two games at a time.
No Square Enix's 1st Production Department is the one working on Versus, while another team called something else did FF13. Basicaly the teams are already spilt, the 1st Production Department is a team already working together, so if there now working on FFX it's just slowed down Final Fantasy Versus even more. They didn't used to have two teams working in the 1st Production Department, they were just working of Versus. I'm sorry but who would disagree on PamPoovey, we've all been moaning on for Versus for years, now we find out their priority isn't Versus but FFX, I like FFX but come on, no need to disagree on something which really, deep down you agree on. Sqaure Enix need to get their act together.
"Final Fantasy Versus XIII (ファイナルファンタジー ヴェルサスXIII Fainaru Fantajī Verusasu Sātīn?) is an upcoming action role-playing game published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 3 and currently being developed by the company's 1st Production Department" Yah, not different development teams. Hopefully its "next" after versus. But seeing how greedy SE has become and not caring about fans (hell, releasing an unfinished story that will be "completed in DLC..." is BS), I wouldn't put it past them.
maybe theyre just putting it together so that this one releases soon after the vita launches, and still plan to release versus in november
Even the avatar looks like Titus. Great. Why doesn't Square listen to people. WE WANT VERSUS XIII NEXT!!!! Not anything else just Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
Lol....I'm actually excited. FFX is probably my favorite in the series.
Wow, hopefully this doesn't mean that they refuse to market Versus XIII while X HD gets shown off. Please SE this is just an HD Remaster not a new game or anything, you can show Versus now. =_=
After Vesus, right?
Where the hell is Versus XIII?
Knowing SE it's currently being caught up to speed on the XBOX, PC, MAC, and WiiU versions. X HD is just a diversion so they can say it wasn't delayed to catch up the other platforms. Expect the announcement around Nov 2013.
That's why I thnk it's taking so long. SE is completely over-hauling versus. When versus is finally, officially announced, it will be multi-platform.
Yep, i think it will go multi as well. I don't care as long as they can make a real Final Fantasy game.
2013 Most likely
No big surprise - Dragon Quest X for the Wii/Wii U was already announced....
We still don't know if this is a HD remaster or a proper HD remake. My money is on the former. With development of Versus, KH3D, Final Fantasy 3DS/Vita, I doubt this will be a full scale remake. And also, FFX is pretty enough without a lift in graphics quality. The two games in real need of remakes are Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy VII.
So what you are saying is that you actually didn't read the article? "During the weekend's Taipei Game Show, 1st Production Department producer Shinji Hashimoto was asked by local media if FFX is a remake or a remaster. He responded that it is the latter. "Remaster" refers to HD updates like ICO and Shadow of the Colossus rather than full remakes."
lol I had made the comment before I finished reading but yes you're right. It makes sense since a remake would take a lot more resources considering the number of titles Square is currently developing.
Personally i would rather have a FFXII remake on the vita. that thing portable with downloadable hunts and espers! or even a second installment would throw me over the edge!
I am tired of waiting for FF Versus 13 for the PS3. If Sony is smart enough they will ask SE to delay it a bit more and launch this FF Versus for the PS4 as a launch game for the japonese market.
Ugh, considering Square Enix's usual marketing and release approach it sounds like the hopes I had of Versus being the next game they'd push on with are dashed and that Versus will be pushed 6-12 months further down the line than when I would have hoped. Just when you think they've ran out of excuses...
why not gives us Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2 HD too.That would make me more happier >.>
Well when I went on andriasang it says it was a mistranslation. It was actually just a countdown to FF Theatrythm which comes out in 10 days.
I am looking forward to Final Fantasy X being reworked because I am hopeful that being a relatively simple task compared to producing a new game there is less room for them to screw it up like they did the more recent FF games (13 series) I am sick of being bitterly disappointed but if they just do X properly then all is forgiven.
Out of ideas. Oldies but goldies i guess that phrase is 100% true in this case.
