Final Fantasy Versus XIII may not be at E3 due to it missing from Square Enix' lineup listing.
Not surprised. With Final Fantasy XIV being shown (again) and possible more info on other FF games on Vita and 3DS, they won't want too much attention being taken away from Versus XIII.
*30 years from* Oldman Nomura: Please *cough* I ask of your patience *hack*, an update will be given in the near future
six years and ticking.. This is probably a game that shouldn't of been announced so early... At this point they should probably change the name. They might as well make it a stand alone Final Fantasy title FF15 or 16 instead of a spin off. That would make SE and the general public more interested in this tittle that has the potential of being one of the best in the series.... It's time for SE to really give some resources to release this game already, and market it properly.
Actually, this doesn't mean anything, the fact that it's not on Square's E3 list. Let's remember, there is a huge possibly Versus XIII may get renamed to either Final Fantasy XV, or become it's own spin off series like Type-0 did. If that's the case, Final Fantasy Versus XIII wouldn't be listed, especially if the surprise announcement is the game has been officially dubbed FFXV. Also, Lets not forget--I'm NOT Saying Versus XIII is multiplat---but FFXIII when it was first announced multiplat was not scheduled to make an appearance. I don't believe it will go multiplat, but it's an example of some of the surprises you tend to see out of e3. Anyway. I hope they at least surprise us with FFX HD trailer.
I think it would be best to name it Final Fantasy XV. Not only does it include a lot of what fans have been craving for from the series, but it's too high quality of a game to be considered just a spin off. And with the hate that FFXIII gets from fans, they may want to deviate away from it.
FF Versus is my last hope for the franchise but this lack of attention is disturbing me
On what basis should I believe that they changed the name--your own blind optimism? Square Enix has shown absolutely no evidence that they are working on this game for real. Big surprise at E3? Your kidding right? Why make people wait till E3 when they've been waiting for years already? Your either way too optimistic or just plain naive. I have been playing games long enough to know when a game company is NEVER going to release a certain game. They just string u along while u foolishly buy their other mediocre sub par games as u wait. Square Enix doesn't even come close to the 90's Squaresoft's work-ethics/ devotion to fans (by keeping their word about releases). Fact. I can't wait to see what you'll say when it doesn't show up at E3 [again].
It won't be renamed to FFXV, it's an action RPG, main FF series are never action RPGs. might still be rebranded though
@mistadonzie there is evidence the game is being worked on.. There was a lengthy gameplay trailer released last Tokyo game show I believe.
They will end up announcing and releasing Final Fantasy 15 or something before this, lets just forget about this until it gets a blowout.
With so much secrecy and long term development etc etc surrounding this game, the fact that it is not listed does not mean anything all these years later. Either it means they are not showing it (obvious) or they want to surprise everyone to get more positive reactions coming their way after what is looking like shoddy development on Square's part. But really.. if there is nothing of FFV13 at E3 this year, I would be disappointed to have to wait longer for some new media.
Wow, vs13 is taking too long to develop. Imagine the total cost of development.
I always thought the first time Versus would be shown again public-ally will be a surprise.
Wait are you serious? How long are you going to take to make this game Square Enix?
If it doesn't show at e3 there is a high chance it will be a march 2013 release. 7 years of waiting =/.
@Kuro How do you figure? From what I've noticed, games tend to come out a couple months after their big E3 showing. So if Versus really doesn't show up at this E3, that could mean it'll be even further down the line. Edit: Just to be clear, when I say "a couple months", I basically mean anywhere from 3-10 months or so.
I said something similar last year...and the year before that...and the year before that...
I think it's head for a cancellation at this point. It's time to really blow people away has passed, unless they move onto wiiu or next gen consoles.
There are no definite facts in the article, they are seemingly once again going off the fabricated list from ign. If this does get approved for some strange reason it should be a rumor, not news! Unless there is a press release from Square-enix this should not be news!! We will be seeing Versus XIII this year at E3, I am willing to bet on it.
I meant to agree. Sorry :/
The longer it takes, the higher the cost and the more likely it goes multiplat. Happened with FFXIII and LA Noire.
I don't know why someone disagreed with you. That's exactly what happened. Honestly though, I'm just viewing this game as vaporware at this point.
likewise. people are honestly only disagreeing with you because they dont want what youre saying to be true. face it guys, at this point vaporware is a big possibility.
To be fair though, it hasn't been in development for all these years. I got shelved till the other games were finished and is now being worked on for the past year. So yeah. You never know.
@Reservoir: Exactly what I was about to say. + Bubs. I remember reading news that the working force for Versus was in FULL EFFECT back late last year , i believe....
I thought they also stated that it was close to being completed, as well. If they're not showing anything, then it's not a good sign.
put it this way if final fantasy XIII-3 or Final Fantasy XV comes out before versus then there is no excuse for this game not being done.
There is no excuse already. We've had XIII-2 and XIV since. Not to mention numerous spin offs since the 2006 trailer.
Square Enix... Smh... :S
Go fuck yourself Square Enix
you sir have just spoken for EVERYONE....thank you.
Nomura say: “We would like to ask for your patience on an official announcement for this title. It always takes time when tackling the challenge of doing something completely new, but we are doing our best to bring information to the fans as quickly as we can. Your patience is greatly appreciated.” Patience!!6 years..... -Final Fantasy Versus XIII won't be at E3 2012- Thanks Square-Enix thanks......squaresoft is dead.......Square-Enix=Liar and 90% crap games.....Next-gen-square=only crap Tokyo trend mobile games-LOL-congratulations! -End of story-
it will probably be at TGS.
Yeah, people need to remember that this is a major japanese game by a japanese company. They'll want to support the Tokyo Game Show. I'm not surprised at them skipping E3, the same might well happen for The Last Guardian.
this just comfirm ,will be shown at the 2020 e3
nah, Nomura asked for patience! so 2025 E3
Guys, that's just ridiculous now. It's more like 2030 and that's if they rush it
wow wow slow down guys. lets not rush things. be reasonable its more like 3013 by this time anyone left to bitch will be dead and the newest generation can try it in there super 3d hdplus real d tvs. then itll get a 7 out of 10.
Does this keep me from hoping anyway? Sadly no... :/ I just.... want to hold it... Just for a minute...
Lost interest in the game. Their loss i guess.
To Be fair, This might just mean that the game won't be on the show floor. It might still be at a press conference or something. But I won't hold my breath. I gotta say though, the timing of this article (after yesterday's "just be patient" article.) is kinda hilarious.
HAHAHAHA Nice job SquareEnix! HAHAHA I wonder what the development budget is up to for this vaporware title? Gotta be in the multiple million$ by now. At this point they will never make it back as by the time it releases we will all be playing next gen consoles.
Guys I have a feeling this game coming to WiiU MultiPlatform Ps3/WiiU maybe a slim chance xbox360
If this game does go multiplat expect it to be ps3/360. With 60 million+ consoles for both ps3 and 360 that would mean more money. It would be stupid to port this to the wii U until it sells atleast 20 million copies and they make some kind of return on the game. And if the wii U is more powerful they would want to make use of the wii U's power instead of simplyjust porting it over which could get costly.
i just hope sony comes out and says lets pretend XIV never existed and move on to XV which is truly better than VII
SONY?? And how's XV better than VII? XV doesn't even exist SONY don't own final fantasy, they can't reveal anything
i mean hoping sony reveals XV at E3 and it is a better game than VII
FFXIV 2.0... Wait for it.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !!
Squeenix really screwed up by putting that idiot Nomura in charge of directing FF. This isn't Kingdom Hearts.
Tbh, Nomura is about the only good thing about SE. If he was in charge, this would have been released instead of pointless XIII-2. At least we know that whenever vsXIII comes out, it'll be top-quality thanks to Nomura.
Nomura has done a lot of work for Square over the years, working FF4-8,FFX, X-2, XI,most of the spinoffs, FF13 AND 13-2, Type-0, Chrono Trigger, Front Mission, and Parasite Eve 1 and 2 to name a few. More importantly he directed every Kingdom Hearts, produced The World Ends With You, The 3rd Birthday, Dissidia 012, and all the other FF spinoffs on PSP. He also also was heavily involved in the story and characters of FF7 and directed Advent Children. Nomura is pretty much the workhorse of Square Enix. They put him to work on just about everything and he always brings back results on whatever he's working on. In fact, with the exception of FF9, every game since FF7 that he hasn't worked in some capacity has pretty much sucked and everthing he's had a major role in has been amazing.
Square Enix is a joke of a company now.
I want to see Final Fantasy Versus XIII Multiplat :) ... ... On PS3 and Vita ;) (Or judging by how long its taking them, PS4 XD!)
"I want to see Final Fantasy Versus XIII Multiplat :) ..." WTF ARE YOU STUPID THE XBOX WILL MESS UP THE ENTIRE GAME AND ITS GONNA SUCK JUST LIKE XIII WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU GTFO!!!!! "On PS3 and Vita ;)" I see what you did tharr..... ^_^
It's already taking long enough just releasing it on PS3. To have it be multiplatform would take even longer for the game to make as of now is just vaporware.
I can just see so many PS3 fanboys being like "FUCK THIS GUY!!! BUBBLE STRAIGHT DOWN!!!" when they just read the "I want to see Final Fantast Versus XIII Multiplat :) ..." part. And then they see, "On PS3 and Vita ;)" and are like, "phewwwwwwwww, was about to SAY!" lmao!
Personally I wouldn't want FFVS13 on the Vita...
I got a lot of disagrees lol, makes me wonder if they stopped reading after "Multiplat" causing fanboy rage :P I do want Final Fantasy versus XIII on a PlayStation only console tho!
By the time it releases on PS3, there'll be a bigger, more expansive, better-looking RPG on PS4 or 720.
Only if by "RPG" you mean "FPS".
VERSUSXII isnt even why im pissed the longer it takes for VS to be released the LONGER it takes for KH3 to go into developement.
I stopped caring ages ago. What are we on? 6 years now? That company is seriously unorganized.
Can someone please tell me how 2 Final Fantasy games can come out for this generation before the one we actually care about comes out. They showed us some Gameplay ages ago and suddenly they can't show us a single thing, What happened? did someone accidentally delete all the development data so they had to start again? They can't even tell us why its taking so long, they owe us that at least. 6 frickin years ago i was still in school. will we be seeing this at e3 in 2017 or something.
FIRE WADA! And we'll sure to see this game finished.
Square Enix, your embarrassing! Again SE is still so disconnected with their fans. Thank God for "From Software" who continues to bring us amazing games.
At this rate may as well release it on the next gen consoles. If this game doesn't show up at TGS this year, then I don't know what SE is doing with it.
Hooray! I'll say it again though, as long as it turns out to be absolutely incredible in the end, I'm okay waiting.
Figures they wouldn't show it there.
