Nomura comments on Versus XIII development

May 4th, 2012 by Tony Garsow

This month’s newest issue of GameInformer features an interview with Tetsuya Nomura, director of Final Fantasy Versus XIII. While the interview was predominantly about the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3D, Nomura did have some words for Versus fans eagerly anticipating more news about the title.

“We would like to ask for your patience on an official announcement for this title. It always takes time when tackling the challenge of doing something completely new, but we are doing our best to bring information to the fans as quickly as we can. Your patience is greatly appreciated.”

Originally announced in 2006 for Japan, Final Fantasy Versus XIII development is now underway by Square Enix’s 1st Production Department. It should be noted however, that the game was absent from Square Enix’s E3 2012 lineup via IGN.

This would make Tokyo Game Show 2012 the most likely venue for Square Enix to blow the lid off Versus information.

    And again, no real info was given by Nomura. At least a damn screenshot would be very appreciated.

  2. ViralZero says:

    Are you serious? That doesn’t even qualify as a f*cking comment. If Versus XIII (should just be XV at this point) isn’t, like, the best game ever it would just have been a waste of everyone’s time.

    Even thought lighting is great atleast she is her character in dissidia than ff13 series.

    Nomura is swell guy, he created the wonderful kh series, all his design are kool. Waiting is worth imo. Versus might be to top it off. Lets see. don’t let ff13 series slow it down anymore or shifting another game befor versus, please continue on versus.

    First I want ff type 0 game either downloadable or ps3/psv remaster and it already out in JAPAN. Type 0 will be definitly in E3 for localization. Not sure if they’ll add new stuff to it, like how 10, 10-2 and 12 (too name a few) did at that it. Would it be possible since it a long w8. How likely is it?

    @ViralZero
    It’s very much a comment. Just not very substantive.

    “blow the lid off VersusXIII info”. They always say that for certain big games. The problem here is that the substance doesn’t even have to can to be blown out of.

    The hell with Versus XIII. All we got out of it is a nice logo and nice cool CGI work. Actually, I think it should just be a CGI movie at this point. The GAME ain’t worth waiting for and probably never will be.

  12. Caius says:

    The GAME ain’t worth waiting for ??

    Please… when Versus finaly came to USA you will be one of the firsts to get it and you know it. I know i will be one of the firsts.

  13. meep says:

    I think the issue is less of long dev times and more on anouncing games too early.

  14. Light-San says:

    I knew it. No way would Square-Enix showcase Versus @ E3. JRPGs are not popular enough out in the west. TGS 2012 makes much more sense.

  15. Sid87 says:

    I’d like an upadte about FFX HD!

  16. Axwind says:

    Maybe it should be called Final Fantasy Forever instead, since it’s taking forever to come out. Also since it’s basically become the Duke Nukem Forever of FF.
