Square Enix dev Yoshinori Kitase has confirmed that Final Fantasy Versus XIII has now entered into full development.

At the fan meeting held for Final Fantasy XIII-2 in Tokyo over the weekend, Kitase, who’s producer on the Fabula Nova Crystallis series where Versus comes from, noted that “for Type-0 and Versus XIII we are giving 100% to development.”

Back in July this year, game director Tetsuya Nomura said that the game had yet to enter production, even after being announced at E3 2006 five years ago.

A new seven minute trailer mixed of CG and gameplay aired back in January. The game won’t be at TGS in any form this week.

Kitase also touched upon the quickness of the release of FFXIII-2, saying it’s down to the reletively brief development time the game has had, as well as know how from work on FFXIII itself.

Thanks, Nova Crystallis.
