    Final Fantasy Versus 13 Info Thread

    "Fools set the rules in this world. Just take a look around. It's undeniable."





    The Game
    Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia
    Final Fantasy Versus XIII (ファイナルファンタジー ヴェルサスXIII Fainaru Fantajī Verusasu Sātīn?) is an upcoming action role-playing game published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 3 and currently being developed by the company's 1st Production Department. Alongside Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, and Final Fantasy Type-0, the game is a part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy series. Unveiled at E3 2006, the game focuses on a mysterious protagonist, Noctis Lucis Caelum, who is the last heir of a dynasty ruling over the only remaining city to control crystals. Under unforeseen circumstances, he makes a stand against marauders seeking to take the crystal as their own.
    Final Fantasy Versus XIII is, according to its developers, a wholly independent story unfolding with different characters and a different visual design. Although it is set within the same Final Fantasy XIII universe, it is unrelated to any other entry within the series and is thus neither a sequel nor a prequel to any other entries in the Fabula Nova Crystallis: Final Fantasy series.
    Gameplay
    Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia
    Director Tetsuya Nomura has stated that the gameplay will be a realistic derivation of Kingdom Hearts's battle system with some elements of a third-person shooter. Nomura has also stated that the game will depart from the light and magical aesthetic of his previous directorial games (i.e. Kingdom Hearts) and opt for a world based on reality. According to Nomura, the world of Final Fantasy Versus XIII is based on the real world and will have actual real world global crisis situations happening in it. In further pursuit of this theme, Nomura has stated that he wants the characters to be "believable as real people" and thus realistic in body movement and facial expressions. As a testament towards his desire for realistic characters, he appointed Jun Akiyama to be the event director due to his experience directing cut-scenes with characters that felt like real people in Final Fantasy XII.

    Nomura stated in July 2011 that most of the cut-scenes in the game will be real-time and the player will still be in control of the main character while the cut-scene is happening. The player will be able to run around and perform various actions during the cut-scenes such as in Heavy Rain. Nomura has called these new types of cut-scenes "Real-Time Events" and they will make up all the cut-scenes in the game. However, he has also stated that the game will also have some pre-rendered CGI scenes. The real-time events will be triggered by the player unexpectedly and with no forewarning unlike Final Fantasy XIII. Players should expect to suddenly be attacked or trigger certain real-time events while just walking around. For example, when Noctis reaches a pedestrian bridge, a behemoth suddenly appears and attacks. Another example is a plane crashing into the road in front of Noctis while he is running down it. Nomura states that implementing these kinds of real-time events, which transition seamlessly into the flow of gameplay, takes a long time in terms of development. There will also be a new real-time lighting system in place for a day/night cycle. The player also has the ability to take photos whenever they want with Noctis' cell phone.

    Battles will take place in real-time environments using all regions of the field, from the tops of buildings down to street level. Nomura said that the game will feature battles that take place in areas with great differences in height, as shown in the trailer, and the players will have to fight using the full environment. This means fighting what's in front, as well as above and below (vertical battles). The battle interface consists of several aspects, mainly Magic, Item, Summons and EX-ARTS. In addition, there are highly animated character portraits on the lower right corner of the screen. The portrait will change according to the character's feelings and current movement similar to Star Ocean: The Last Hope albeit in a wider variety.

    The game's combat will be party-based, with each party consisting of a maximum of three characters at a time with players being able to switch between the controlled characters. At the start of the game, the party line-up will be predetermined, though players will get the ability to freely switch out members as the story progresses, similar to Final Fantasy XIII. Each character will have his or her own unique special attack capabilities, and all characters will be able to use magic, although the effect of the magic differs from character to character. For example, when Noctis casts magic, it emerges from his weapon, while for another party member, it may light his surroundings with fire. Noctis is the only character capable of equipping all weapon types in the game; other characters each have their own unique specialties. For example, one of the characters is a gun specialist who can switch to a third person view for precise aiming at the enemy's weak points, buildings, and other objects.

    Nomura has also stated in Dengeki PlayStation that he aims to create previously unseen "tricky" battle sequences, reminiscent of the CGI film, Final Fantasy VII Advent Children. He has also stated that the development team have been implementing a traversable world map, used in the main Final Fantasy series up until its removal in Final Fantasy X. Nomura later commented, in an interview conducted via Twitter, that players will be able to control an airship around the world map.

    Like some of the previous games in the Final Fantasy series the game will feature large open fields in the world map which allow players to walk through almost anything on the field apart from the mountains. Nomura has also mentioned that the fields are truly vast and that it was very far to traverse from one end to another; thus, to facilitate easy navigation, the game will feature the return of vehicles such as an airship along with a form of fast travel between specific locations on the world map as well as a car, allowing players to easily traverse the large fields. Players can ride cars, aircraft and Chocobos; they can also steal tanks.

    One of the trailers shows Noctis selecting from a number of different weapons to defeat the enemy soldiers in front of him. The various weapons in the game will have different methods of attack, and some will even be usable as shields to go along with Noctis's crystal power. Weapons will have some sort of customization such as elemental attacks as well. The trailer also showed Noctis warping around killing enemies. Nomura explained that players won't be able to warp freely to every spot but will be able to warp to the location where the sword is placed but is limited to an attack gauge. This is one area that is being tested on so it's a matter of time to see if this all makes it into the final product. Summon beasts are in the game and will have to be defeated to be used. Nomura has also said that the game may have Sixaxis support.

    The official trailer starts with the words, "This is a fantasy based on reality." The trailer shows modern technology such as cars, freeways, skyscrapers, gas stations, and automatic weapons and bears a striking resemblance to the real world today.

    • Magic has different effects depending on the character who uses it.
    • A young blonde male character shown in the magazine's screenshots is good with guns. He alone has aiming controls and can aim for enemy weak spots.
    • When other characters use guns, they have just a normal lock-on.
    • The game has a large number of weapons. Main character Noctis can use them all.
    • Your battle party can have up to three members. However, the members who aren't taking part in the battle will join in on conversations.
    • There are more party members than the four shown in the magazine. However, the game doesn't have a massive number of party members.
    • Main character Noctis is not "cool." He's just a normal youth. He feels "I am strong," but he's not as strong as he thinks.
    • Some segments of the trailer show natural landscapes. These are like the fields you encounter in other games. The game will have time progression: morning, afternoon, evening and night.
    • Contrary to some theories, the dragon rider character who appears in the trailer is not heroine Stella. Nomura says he wouldn't show Stella in such a state. The character you see in that sequence is an enemy.
    • You can steal army vehicles for your use. You can ride air ships, cars and Chocobos.
    • The blonde character shown in the trailer is Noctis's friend. The other two characters are friends from Noctis's childhood.
    • The person with glasses is like Noctis's tactician.
    • You'll recall that someone in the trailer says "You're not fit to be king," or something to that effect. This statement is not directed at Noctis. (I think everyone assumed it was!)

    • There is a summoning element to the game.
    • Your weapon selection will include: swords, axes, spears/lances, hand guns, machine guns, rifles, bazookas, and shot guns. This is just a partial list, though.
    • The Ignis character (the guy with the glasses) is good with assist-style attacks. He can toss knives at enemies. (Note: I'm not sure if Nomura actually uses the Ignis name, or if it's just the person who wrote the summary.)
    • The character with the scar on his face uses a fighting style. He can make use of a pile bunker and broad sword.
    • The blonde character is a gunner
    • The game will have positional damage elements for attacking enemies.
    • Larger enemies will have weak points.
    • The game does not have team attacks for your party members. Repeat: does not.
    • You can combo your attacks across character changes -- that is, you can keep your combo going when you switch the character you're currently controlling. As an example, you can make the scarfaced character do positional damage with his hammer, then switch to Ignis, or you can make the enemy shrink away in fear from Ignis's magic then call in another character to attack.
    • You can bring party members back to life if they die. The exception is Noctis. If he dies, the game ends
    • The difficulty is being set towards the high end.
    Supposedly this game still exists. I had a thread like this before the whole database crash or what ever happened with the site, so this is its remake..I will update this thread as more information becomes available and feel free to use it to discuss the game.

    I remade it with the hopes that I'll have actual new information to update it with.

    Maybe its just wishful thinking... But now that Type-O is finished, perhaps Versus 13 can finally see some sort of light at the end of the tunnel.

    2013 is a very likely release date. But I am perplexed as to how some people still think FF Versus XIII do not exist at all! I would rather wait a long time for a very polished game than be rushed with a half-complete edition. Patience, patience, makes the world go round. =3

    Agreed, better to have a great game (even if it took 5+ years) than something like CoD.

    See the thing is, I have NO problem with them taking their time to make a quality game. The problem I have is ANNOUNCING it way too early. We've known about this game for 5 years...I'd rather them keep it a secret for 3 or 4 of those years since in that time it doesn't seem like they managed to make progress anyway. Its just an irritating thing that Square Enix does lol.

    I don't see why it couldn't release in the end of 2012 (Japan). FF 13-2 already released in japan I believe or will soon so its completely reasonable for it to release in 2012. Of course with this game not much has been reasonable...

    I wouldn't say they've made no progress at all. If anything, what irritates you is the fact that they release info once a year lol.

    And I agree with the Japanese 2012 release date (that's what I voted for).

    Ahh yeah thats a better way to put it lol. But mainly the announcing a game that won't be completed for years to come.

    I voted for Never as a joke

    That seems to be the general consensus. Any later than 2013 would be past pushing it, I think.

    @UrbanHellRaiser: Thanks, in fact I'll use that one instead of the one there since its translated.

    Square Enix Shares Jump Festa Lineup -- Andriasang.com

    Well Jump Festa is coming up in a few weeks (Dec 17th/18th) and surprise, Square hasn't listed Versus as a game they'll be showing at the event.

    But as we know in the past they have fucked with us by saying there would be no Versus shown, then showing Versus...so I guess keep your fingers crossed.
