Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura has said in this week’s issue of Famitsu that the publisher’s Fabula Nova Crystallis press conference – which will see reveals of Final Fantasy Agito XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII in January – will also contain “other surprises”.

The presser, known as “Fabula” for short, will finally see fully-fledged reveals of both Versus and Agito after a long period of secrecy, and it looks as though at least one other game will be included in the event.

“There are Dissidia characters we will announce at the conference, and we also have a number of other surprises,” he said.

Nomura, Versus XIII’s director, also revealed the reason why the Versus dev team have been so quiet: it’s been aiming for a proper reveal at the Fabula press conference, so announced nothing at E3 and showed very little last week at TGS.

Square announced the press conference for the two games at TGS at the end of a showreel for Agito and Versus, which subsequently leaked. It’ll take place on January 11, 2011.

Thanks, Andriasang.

    It will be an announcement of a 360 version. Hardly a surprise.

    Given recent form perhaps they’ve changed the game’s name to Fabula Nova Crystallis [Ater Atra Atrum]: Versus XIII – Final Fantasy.

    Fabula Nova Crystallis is actually a universe.
    SE said long time ago that they are going to make future FF titles in the FNC universe.

    @11 Yeah, but nothing like Final Fantasy XV if that’s what you’re implying.

    It would be awesome if versus was set on pulse, thousands of years before XIII. but it wont

    @13 Makes no sense at all. Versus is probably another planet or something. It’s just dark. Absolutely different setting.
    FNC is basically a story about Gods judging by the FFXIII shitty story.

    @12 Final Fantasy XV probably is going to be set at the FNC universe too in the future. Me thinks.

    The story to Final Fantasy XIII was actually quite good, though they failed tragically in making the set-up such a long, slow process. However, I was quite pleased (and in some parts depressed) with the climax and end result.

    Much like has been mentioned before, I have a feeling FFvXIII will be a prequel of sorts, taking place long before the fall of Pulse. I would really love an origin story based on the creation of the world, the Fal’Cie and further explaining the power of the L’Cie.
