Producer Kitase comments on Versus XIII

January 3rd, 2012 by Tony Garsow

Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase was interviewed by EDGE magazine, and one of the topics that came up was the ongoing development of Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Kitase elaborates:

“… Then there’s Versus XIII, which is currently in development. We released a trailer in January [2011] and since then there has been nothing, but I can assure you the team is working extremely hard on it and I think people will be excited when they next see it.”

Director Tetsuya Nomura had also made comments a few months back about the development of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, commenting that since Final Fantasy XIII-2’s development was coming to a close, that it is “Versus’s turn next”.

Update: To provide proper context, the original article was printed in November 2011, but recirculated through our sources in January. Looks like this is a bit old, folks!

    So wait, excuse me for being behind on the developers circle and what not, but is kitase the same guy who did 13 and 13-2 or something? Or was versus’s development delayed because programmers and the such were working on 13 so Kitase was waiting until they were finished to begin development on versus?

  • Tony

    He’s a producer for all these titles, yes. He’s generally a producer for games that come out of Square Enix’s 1st Production Department which include XIII and XIII-2 as well as Versus and Type-0.

    As far as Versus development has been going, it depends on where the manpower in the department is being focused. It seems like there’s a (generally) small number of staff that plan out the titles, and as soon as the game is planned out for the most part, the division begins working on it as a whole. Things like building in-game art assets and so on.

  • Cody

    interesting. when did kitase step in? was it before 13?

  • Tony

    He was the producer from the start.

    Blah blah blah…

    I feel like they’re feeding us, crumb by crumb, nibble by nibble. Just enough to say “Hey guys! You know that game that we announced half a decade ago? Yeah, that one, well, it’s not dead!”

  • LL

    Man, every new piece of Versus news gets me excited, now show us some screens, trailers, and give us some dates.

  • Faylo

    I mean, seriously, even just saying that it will be a Fall/Winter 2012 release would be a smart move.

  • Ixbran

    wow, you mean there still developing this game?

    thought they gave up on it.

    First time they came up with versus was in 2008 if i’m not wrong
    Now, a half decade later they say, maybe we are working on it ‘-‘
    But game will come, but in this rate, will be a true final fantasy.

  • Mms

    World will end before this comes out, I assure you. I’m about to give up on something that was potentially groundbreaking. Half a decade man…
