Final Fantasy Versus XIII Trailer Impressions

It looks like we'll need to wait a little longer for more info on Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

by

Since 2006, we've been shown very few trailers of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and as of now, there is very little information on the game itself and how it will play. We know it will be on the PlayStation 3, and it is set in the world of Final Fantasy XIII. Like Final Fantasy Agito XIII, it's part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy XIII compilation. The most interesting piece of information that was revealed in the trailer at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show is that a Fabula Nova Crystallis conference is going to be held on January 11, 2011.

The Final Fantasy Versus XIII trailer was part of a series of incredibly brief trailers that showed images from Final Fantasy XIII as well as Final Fantasy Agito XIII. We saw the main character, a young man with short black hair, wander through several completely deserted areas. First it was a barren landscape, and then it switched to a deteriorated roadway, and eventually we saw him in the city, where it was just him fighting a giant behemoth. The quick fight scene showed him jumping and slashing furiously at the beast. Any hint of color or life in the trailer was limited to the spurts of red blood, coming from the behemoth, which stood out against the mostly dark and gray environment. There was nothing else onscreen that would give us any clues as to how this game is set up other than it looks to be a 3D action game.

Stay tuned for additional information as soon as it becomes available, which will likely be in January.

Oh come on, Square Enix... we've been waiting forever! I've been stoked all this time just at the idea that there will finally be a Final Fantasy game with blood. X-2's scene with the death of Shuyin and Lenne? Yeah, I was just laughing the whole damn time, it looked so stupid. I've been waiting for the blood for so long... TT^TT

What if on that day, they when "sorry, but we've decided to cancel this game, due to FFXIII's failure to meet expectation." ?

Everything after FF7 just was'nt the same...I miss the armor sets and relics that disappeared after FF6, too. Now all you get is a weapon and armband. Lame. Oh, and the cartoon voices need to go. How about a FF game that's geared towards its audience that has aged over 10 years since the series inception? The series continues to gain new fans while losing old ones...

i just hope this game is nothing like final fantasy 13,as a huge final fantasy fan XIII was so disappointing.

UnitedGamerz is right. That website has everything up to date, especially leaked videos. I have been waiting for this game to be out since last year lol. But we all have to wait. I don;t like final fantasy 13 too much but versus 13 will open the doors for future square enix games. Can't wait for january (for hopefully game play and story)

Since Nomura is actually the director for Versus, and not just the character designer like for XIII, I am hoping for an epic game. By the way, where the hell is this trailer mentioned in the article?

wasn't this game like less than 10% on developement few years back when they started along with FFXIII development? I remember reading an article about it. I also remember FF versus XIII development team went to help the FFXIII team finishing their FFXIII game, so does it mean we have to wait 2 or more years for this game to come out? I think so, considering it took a while to finish FFXIII with missing scenarios and other areas that SE had to cut out for its release schedule.

It better be one of the best JRPG ever made because all I been hearing is talk and no action yet. Then again this is Nomura who worked on previous FF games and also made the great Kingdom hearts so I'm sure he won't disappoint his fans.

@warner11 ....Lol. exactly what Soldjango said to you. And if I recall correctly, Pulse was the world BEFORE Cocoon was ever even created. Most of the people who lived on Pulse migrated to Cocoon. I don't recall a war being mentioned. I have to play through the game again. >

@Waranabatokwa Sure, post the picture or the link for it, cuz i cant tell what character is it if u dont post it right

@DarkBuhamut, no, i did not play naughty bear, Dante's inferno or white knight chronicles. why not? cause I knew they were going to suck. FF13, i expected much from, way to much apparently. Don't get me on the boring battle system (X,X,X,X, L1(switch to heal) X,X,X,X,L1(switch to dps), X,X,X,X), the dumb, boring, convoluted story, annoying character, i wanted to kill Hope myself, slowwwly. . in other words, FF13 was suppose to be the biggest, best RPG to hit this generation, we wanted thunder and we got a whimper. That's why FF13 should be worst game of the year. *end rant*

They are doing exactly the same thing they did with FFXIII. They are hiding the game because they don't want people too see how the game is now to then when they really start with the multiplatform development they don't want the fans nitpicking the game because of the changes they made to make both versions of the game equal for both consoles.

@warrner11: It's been said that save for the mythos of the crystals, the Fabula Nova Crystallis games have no shared story.

This is just my 2 cents but i believe this may b set on Pulse prior to the War with Cocoon.
