Final Fantasy Versus 13 is now Final Fantasy 15

Tuesday, 11th June 2013 03:13 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Square Enix showed off a new trailer for Final Fantasy Versus 13 at the Sony E3 conference. It’s now known as Final Fantasy 15. It’s coming to PlayStation 4. Spoilers: it looks pretty ballin’. Check out the trailer below.

Final Fantasy 15 was first announced as Final fantasy Versus 13 way, way back when the Fabula Nova Crystallis sequence was revealed. It’s the only game yet to surface from the three announced at the time, and despite the long delay, platform upgrade, and rumorus of troubled development, still looks fairly close to the original vision presented over seven years ago.

Rumourmongers knew this was happening in March; well done them.

    FF15?? Are you sure they said that?

    It looks fine as a “versus” game, but absolute shit for a main series Final Fantasy game.

    It looked terrible right from day one. It still does.

    Re-christening it XV is just sheer laziness.

    This looks awesome, and I’m amazed and pleased that Squeenix finally practiced some actual intellect and common sense by rebranding this game as FF15. It’s a game people have been dying to see, and it’s a shitload more of a Final Fantasy game than they tried to make FF13 out to be.

    I’ve had a rule for the past few years of absolutely refusing to buy anything Squeenix until a proper Aya Brea game was made, after Squeenix ruined her and the Parasite Eve franchise with 3rd Birthday, which was further exacerbated by a decade of mostly disappointing or downright insulting games. And yet, FF15 is so awesome and so much like the Final Fantasy we’ve been missing for so long that I think I’ll end up breaking that rule to buy FF15 if it continues on the path we’ve seen so far.

    That is no small feat. I’ve increasingly loathed Squeenix as time went on ever since FFX-2. One of my online contacts was stunned and shocked that I was THIS excited for a Squeenix game. That’s how big of a thing this reveal is for me. It made me, a huge Squaresoft fan whose opinion of Squeenix and their level of “quality” fell so low that I genuinely wouldn’t have been surprised if they started making guro porn games (though, a branch of theirs recently inspired that direction…), and made me eager and willing to buy something from them again.

    I was a bit disappointed to see FF Versus XIII jumping ship to the PS4 as FF XV, but now that Kingdom Hearts 3 is releasing for the PS4, it’s a bonus I guess.

    Oh man, can’t wait KH3.

    Must preorder KH 1.5 HD to relive the magic. :) :D

    FF Xv will be on Xbox one because thzy coudn’t keep the name of Versus which is own by the sony and square. They change it for that purpose.Sony has never said “it’s exclusive for PS4 nor Nomura

    For me, the Xbone is a mess regardless of games available on the system…

    Xbox doesnt Deserve an FF title. Shitty FFXIII it can have,but Versus hands off.

    @17 – And what is your official source for this? Hmmmmm? Come on, give me a link, boy, or forever shut your mouth.

    big chance that this is coming to X1 too. If this was exclusive to PS4 along with KH3, they would’ve said so.

    #21 1 year ago
  22. Ireland Michael

    @16 I did.

    It looks like the same old tired Nomura designs, with the same old melodramatic haircuts and brooding. Nor do I care much for this whole “real world” aesthetic.

    @21 Probably. I could see FF XV going multiplatform as it doesn’t have any back story with the Playstation brand, but on the other hand I believe that Versus XIII was supposed to be a PS3 exclusive…

    Also KH3 is a long stretch because the majority of the Xbox players probably didn’t have the chance to play the previous titles and the HD collection is only coming to the PS3.

    I’m just thinking. And we will see in 30 min. But i hope is not true. I’m PS fan so.

    @23 So? More formats means more exposure.

    hey’re not going to ignore potentially millions of people because of some outdated platform bias. This isn’t 1997 anymore. Games cost far more to make. They can’t afford to.

    The native PC architecture of both consoles are going to make conversions and ports a heck of a lot easier this generation.

    It’ll probably be a multiplat game, but who cares? It just means more people that want to play the game will get to do so, and what’s more important is that we finally have a real main Final Fantasy game after a good decade without one. FF12 was okay, but wasn’t anywhere near as great as FF10 and before.

    #26 1 year ago
  27. CyberMarco

    @25 I can’t argue on that. Will have to see how things will turn out though. Regardless of exclusivity or not, the game probably is going to rock.

    Also Kingdom Hearts 3! :D :D :D

    @26 Totally disagree. FF12 is the best Final Fantasy game ever made, with 9 and 6 coming up just behind it.

    Sadly, looks like the “every third game is a classic masterpiece” role isn’t going to swing this time. This looks like garbage.

    @27 If I didn’t know any better, I would guess you’re slightly excited about Kingdom Hearts 3.

    @28 – Ugh. FFXII is utter and complete excrement. Second only to FFV in awfulness.

    Who can be excited about that game. I played Birth by sleep last week n it was great. Can’t be more prepared for the KH3.

    @29 V is one of my favourites. The story wasn’t great in V, but it was far, far less restrictive and original than IV, which is in my opinion the most vastly overrated in the entire series.

    You don’t say!? xD

    @31 – While I agree that IV is vastly overrated, I found V so incredibly awful, I never beat it. It just got too stupid for me, storywise, to where I just couldn’t force myself to continue playing.

    But XII was just awful at everything it did except for the characters of Balthier and Dr. Cid. Otherwise, it had bland characters, the worst gameplay in the entire series, bar-none, a world that felt ripped out of the Star Wars prequels, and a story that felt like it had been written on a napkin.

    Best one is X, followed by IX, followed by, yes, XIII, followed by VII.

    @33 – Umm i’m not sure if you dont know your Roman numerals or if you are just trolling, but saying that XIII was a good final fantasy is clearly wrong! I will never class FF12 or FF13 as a Final fantasy game as the series is far too good to have those put into the same class as the previous games.

    Lets face it, us Final fantasy fans love the Final fantasy games because of three things mainly. They are the amazing story, The awsome music and that great character development. IF you have played XIII you will know that it has none of them, Sure it has nice graphics but we dont play the Final Fantasy series for that.

    In no perticular order the best Final fantasy games would have to be 6,7,8,9,10. Square knew what they were doing and were awesome, when they became Squaresoft the perfected everything they knew and everything we wanted. When they became Square enix everything fell apart, they clearly forgot everything and have till this day, not known what to do or how to create a game.

    I like the look of versus (FF15) although it looks like they have changed the battle system from what they origionally had made, it now looks like a Devil may cry game. I dont understand why they have taken so long to release this game… considering it was complete a few months after the horridly bad Final fantasy 13.

    Well i will still be buying this game at some point and i am hoping that they once again remember why we love the Final Fantasy series and why it became so popular before the fall of Squaresoft. Hopefully FF15 will have a good story, good character development, good music and a good battle system. I am not holding my breath though after experiencing the series after FF10 :(

    @35 – I’m pretty sure I have my Roman numerals right. I love XIII. It’s the third best of the series. VIII, on the other hand, sucks. But not as much as XII did.

    @36 – But FF13 had no good music, barely any story, no chracter development, horrid battle system and what little story it had it threw players right into the middle of with no build up to it. You start the game and complete the game without feeling any sort of connection towards the characters or story at all. FF13 was short, felt rushed and had very little content compared to the other Final fantasy games.

    I will agree that many people did not like FF8 because they found it too emotional compared to other FF’s but i would have to say it had everything that makes a good Final Fantasy. It had good characters, good music, good battle system and everything else, the only thing i would say that wasn’t good about the game was the whole equiping magic thing which improved your stats, the concept was good but it was too unballanced to work well.
