Versus XIII

Tetsuya Nomura has hinted to Dengeki that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is a 2012 release.

Speaking to the mag, Nomura, director of the game, apparently joked to forget about Versus in 2011, a year which features FFXIII-2, Final Fantasy Project 0 and Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy.

He added that the game will take time.

Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 producer Yoshinori Kitase couldn’t commit to a 2011 date for the game at gamescom in Cologne last summer.

Nomura mentioned that the next big update for the game will come at E3 in June at the earliest.

Following a 2009 mention which said an update could feature at last year’s E3, Nomura went on to warn that the RPG may miss the show. As it proved, the title did not turn up in LA last year.

Dengeki’s also gotten plenty more details on the game itself, which has been translated by Andriasang.

The trailer shown at last week’s Square event will go live on the Japanese Versus website tomorrow.
