Kitase: FF Versus XIII’s development moving “comparatively faster” than FFXIII’s

Final Fantasy Versus XIII’s title always — to us, anyway — implied some sort of sibling rivalry with FFXIII, but we never expected Versus XIII to overtake its numeral-centric older brother. However, even though FFXIII’s definitely coming out first, Square Enix’s Yoshinori Kitase says that FF Versus XIII’s development is moving at a “comparatively faster rate.”

Apparently, many of Versus XIII’s developers leveled up and learned Hastaga while they were helping out with FFXIII. The “knowledge and experience” points they gained while giving FFXIII a boost are now proving invaluable in FF Versus XIII’s development.

Kitase recently told us that FFXII will be launching this spring. Guess we’ll be seeing Versus XIII shortly after that.

Thanks, Kotaku.
