And you're my number one trophy, closely followed by AaronSoldier!
I like FFXIII but I don't WANT these games to drag out for 10 years, give me a NEW FF experience.... FFXV plz haha
A shame. They sounded like they really wanted to show something before years end. There is technically still a month but doubt anything will come to fruition.
Quick! Someone publicize some BS like earlier this year. It'll force them to at least show the company still exists :snicker
I don't really understand either, DarkVincent. I grew up loving Square and just about everything with their name on it. I think my standard for them got too high and after XIII, I was pissed off at them. I thought and still think XIII is pure garbage, but I came to terms with their whole plan for a series of XIII games.
My current attitude? If they release a new FF game, I'll look into it. If it sucks, oh well. Honestly, I don't even care if the series ends at this point. I do have interest in XIV, but that's because I was a big XI player. There are so many other games or rpgs out there that I can get my fill.
Why are they doing it this away instead of making a successful FF and then expanding upon it? Maybe because with this gen the cost of an engine, whole new assets, art, etc cost so much more than the PSone days, making it less viable to make 3 completely different games with totally different engines and battle systems.
Maybe going multiplat in the middle of the development messed things too, IDK. I think most people would agree that XIII has been less than ideal, but sales for the game were still pretty solid. I think most devs/publishers would like to sell over 5 million copies.
I really don't have a good enough guess for why they are doing what they are doing, but Kuro said it best, "can't do much but wait".
Regarding Final Fantasy XV, I'm pretty sure Hiroyuki Ito and his team are working on it. He was responsible for Final Fantasy VI, IX and XII.
I'm really looking forward to FFX hd. For nostalgia reasons obviously. I would love to see a new trailer at TGS with a release date. I'll be happy with square for the most part.
It's gonna go like this E3 2013 PS4 and 720 announced and the end of one of the conferences Wada taps on someone's shoulder. "Just one more thing". Queue new VERSUS XIII trailer running in real-time on the new Luminous engine. :p
In all seriousness though, once the next-gen starts I really hope they ditch this whole direct sequel business and go back to single standalone Final Fantasys. I want XV, XVI, XVII. Not XV, XV-2, XV-3.
When VSXIII was announced....I was 16 and 230 pounds......my weight went up to 306 pounds now I've lost 100 pounds and for the first time in my life Im skinny...what Im basically saying is...I was able to accomplish a life long goal, become legal, be old enough to drink in the United States and Started and graduated from University before this game has even seen a release window. This is just ridiculous, I'd honestly would feel so much better if they were just up front and went it's being pushed back to next gen (Like Bioware and Dragon Age 3) or just tell us you cancelled it.
I'm certainly not waiting for it or planning for it anymore, but it would make some sense for S-E to finish the FFXIII trilogy before switching to a new universe. There's also FFXIV: A Realm Reborn, which they'll have to market too. That's most likely why S-E is mum on Versus.
But my point isn't that we should still hope for Versus. My point is that if S-E hires some good writers, it will be pivotal for the fans. It doesn't matter how good the gameplay is. If the story is stupid, then a lot of players won't become attached to the game like they did with the classic Final Fantasies. It's the story that made Final Fantasy more than just a game.
So even though I'm enjoying FFXIII-2's gameplay right now, it's just a decently fun game to me. I don't feel attached like I did when I played FFVII, FFX, etc. I usually end up laughing at 80% of the dialogue.
I would honestly prefer for Versus to be developed for Next Gen. Yeah, we might have to wait another 2 or 3 years, but we've waited this long already and the current gen has gotten old.
When Versus was first announced back in 2006, we were all were excited to see a cool, open-world, "next-gen" Final Fantasy. But we've gone through nearly an entire console cycle since then.
It's hard to say about whether it would be ps3/4. They released XII when the ps3 console release was right around the horizon, so it really depends on how much of it is done I think. Without a solid ps4 launch window, this game could very well release right before ps4.
An HD version of FFX would make my life worth living. In all seriousness.
If anyone is willing to do some long reading on the way this type of thing happens, Polygon has a really good article on THQ's Homefront game and how that turned into a nightmare. I don't think it's a stretch to assume something similar is happening here.
Very much so, tbh it's not been a great generation for JRPGs in general, you'd think with all the processing power they can make the ideal open world RPG, but they decided to take another direction and try to appeal to a different fan base, retain them for the next gen and continue in this manner. I find that XIII was ok, i liked the gameplay, but it didn't stick with me. FFX HD will definitely buy, but they're slow in development as they always have been, unfortunately people still buy the XIII franchise, so perhaps we won't see Versus until next year or on the next generation.
Not confirmed but...
Nearly 2 years have passed since Square Enix first demonstrated in game footage of its upcoming action rpg to the public.
While details surrounding the long awaited Final Fantasy Versus XIII continue to be secluded for another year, word on the street suggests that the media blackout regarding Versus XIII may end as early as the new year.
According to the Final Fantasy grapevine, Square Enix is preparing a special conference to be held January 15th-17th. It’s rumored that Noctis and company will have their day in the sun once more after a two year absence as new in-game Final Fantasy Versus XIII footage is expected to be revealed. A new playable character will also reportedly be shown as well.
Final Fantasy Versus XIII won’t be the only rpg in the spotlight at this event, assuming the unconfirmed reports are to be believed. New details on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy X HD are also on tap for the event.
While Square Enix has held a similar conference in Japan nearly two years ago which focused on all things Final Fantasy ( including Versus XIII ), we’ve been burned plenty of times in the past by rumors concerning the elusive PS3 exclusive.
Until this news is confirmed by those in the know, it would be wise if we all took the above information with a truck load of kosher salt before getting too excited
These games better be coming eventually. Especially Versus XIII. That game has been a must have since the day it was shown for me.
I'd settle for an HD FFX this generation. Can't wait to replay it in HD as it's my favorite FF game.
All i want is FFX HD and that's all. FFXIIIvs is not going to be what we hope it would, that is how i feel.
I saw a thread over at gaf where it said the versus and FFX won't be making an appearance at SE jump festa event
I'm surprised someone hasn't blown up Square-enix at this point.
In all seriousness I think I'm come to terms with this game being vaporware, and not only that within the time span of it's announcement I've played other RPG's and just games PERIOD(Valkyria Chronicles and Persona 3 come to mind) that if it doesn't stack up at least even a little then it's a failure. I'm not saying it has to blow me away, but at least be a FF game and not some stupid bullshit like FFXIII.
True, but as I know if this game does get released it's going to have semi-duke nukem syndrome where people won't give a crap. It might be good, but you lost the hype because you announced it how many years ago? 6 now or was it 7.
Kind of like KH3(although not announced) people are getting upset that a Kingdom Hearts game hasn't graced Consoles since 2006 with KH2 although we've had other games(not necessarily side games).
