Versus XIII

Speaking in this week’s Famitsu, Final Fantasy Versus XIII director Tetsuya Nomura has said that the earliest we’re going to see his game is at E3 next June.

“We’ll gradually unveil it starting next year, at E3 if we’re quick enough,” said Nomura.

He also talked about the development video shown at the Tokyo Game Show on the game.

“That wasn’t development stuff, but a technical demo reel of sorts. We hurriedly put together a video because we wanted people be assured that Versus is also still under development.”

He also confirmed that the gameplay for the game will be similar of that to Kingdom Hearts.

“It will fall close to that category, but we’re aiming for a fusion of new features with the classic FF style. We see level design as the most important part of development here, but it’ll be a while before we can show any of that.”

It’ll release when… well, just before the end of the world. After Final Fantasy XIII anyways, exclusive to PlayStation 3.

Thanks, 1UP.

    Whats that pic from?

    Agreed Hunam. Hopefully they do show something next E3 and not a tech demo but actually gameplay and won’t be in the next 10 years.

    Dark and brooding settings? With guns? Women? Business suits and hot business cars?

    …With Kingdom Hearts style gameplay?!

    I’m… gunna cry :D

    Couldn’t give a toss about FFXIII. Versus is where my money’s going.

    I have to agree – Versus definitely looks the more interesting of the two projects. But then again, we know practically nothing about it. Couldn’t we have a bit of a reveal sort of…. nowish? :-)
