This week’s Famitsu features an interview with Final Fantasy Versus XIII director Tetsuya Nomura. Details we’ve obtained about this interview thusfar are about the game’s world map and engine. Nomura commented that he tested the game’s world map last Sunday, a classic feature where players will be able to navigate between towns and dungeons. He remarked that the world map is quite expansive and impressive-looking.
While the game is running on Square-Enix’s Crystal Tools engine, it appears that lighting techniques from the company’s new engine Luminous have been used in Versus XIII. The modified engine Versus XIII uses suits action well.
