The demographics of Xbox 360 owners just flat out don't care for JRPGs. For Xbots are a lot that cares more for shooters like Halo, Gears of War, and Call of Duty and western RPGs like Mass Effect and Fable.

Square-Enix's performance on the Xbox 360 just doesn't deserve the special treatment that Microsoft has given them when Activision Blizzard (Call of Duty, Guitar Hero), UbiSoft (Assassin's Creed, Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell), Take-Two (BioShock, Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto), and Electronic Arts (Mass Effect, Madden NFL) have performed so much better.

Combat looks great... but man, why can SE no longer make a male character that doesn't look effeminate? I swear Cecil was the last male main character that looked like a badass... and they even screwed that (art) up with the remake on DS.

Effeminate male's are superior, though

It's not even that the males are effeminate per se, it's just that everyone is designed to look as androgynous as possible.

Androgyny is radical, though

Noctis looks different again.

I like the change though. Square is listening to its "worldwide" audience instead of solely the Japanese.

They are making him look older and give his facial characteristics a rougher look.

So stoked to play this. I really like the modern technology mixed with "fantasy" setting. The battle system looks pretty sweet too.

Dang, it was just confirmed that this game was NOT coming out this year.

http://ps3.ign.com/articles/114/1145870p1.html

Quote:
Square took one of the thousand-or-so layers off the veil covering Final Fantasy Versus XIII at last week's 1st Production Department Premier event. Today, thanks to Japanese publication Dengeki PlayStation and a few trustful Japanese blogs that managed to get magazine's latest issue a couple of days in advance, we have new details, some good and some bad.

We'll get the bad out of the way first. There's no way this thing is coming out this year. Director Tetsuya Nomura is interviewed in the magazine and said that because they're trying to do a number of incredible things and the focus is on quality, they will need more time. He joked that because Duodecim Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy Type-0 and Final Fantasy XIII-2 are all due out this year, players should forget about Versus for the time being.

That's going to be tough to do, as the details the magazine has on the game do have us excited. Most of the information can be discerned from the Premier trailer, which will be released in HD later this week.

Versus has a party-based combat system where you switch between three character, Nomura confirmed. The game will have more playable characters than just the four who were shown in the trailer, he also said, although the number of such characters won't get too high.

Each character has different abilities, both in weapon use and in the effect of their magic calls. Main character Noctis can use all the game's wide variety of weapons. One character, a blonde guy who appeared in the trailer, is skilled with guns, and he alone can be switched to a third person aiming mode for precise aim.

The Versus development staff seem to be going for an eventful gameplay experience. Nomura highlighted the game's real time event system, where some wild things will happen as you're moving about. This was seen in the trailer as a giant behemoth beast attacked when Noctis approached a bridge, and as ships crashed to the ground around Noctis and crew. The game transitions to these events seamlessly, a system that's taking some time to develop, said Nomura.

Other intriguing features mentioned by Nomura are a day/night cycle system for the game's world map (in the trailer, the world map parts are the nature areas towards the end), and the ability to ride cars, air ships and chocobos. You can also steal military use vehicles, although Noctis is such a good guy that he won't steal from common folk. Noctis can also kill off enemies to steal their mechs and other mechanized war machines. All these features can be seen in the trailer.

The trailer also shows some vague story and character details if you can read the subtitles. In the Dengeki story, Nomura cleared up a few incorrect assumptions people have made regarding these areas.

Towards the middle of the trailer, an old man in a throne, confirmed to be Noctis' father, says something along the lines of "You cannot be king." He's saying this not to Noctis, as many had assumed, but to someone whose identity Nomura would not disclose.

More significantly, the end of the trailer shows an armored lady in an apparent confrontation with Noctis. Many assumed this was heroine Stella. But it's not. Nomura says the lady is a dragon knight and an enemy.

Our next update on Final Fantasy Versus XIII will come at E3 or beyond, Nomura told Dengeki, so you're going to have to make the most of the new trailer when it hits later this week.

Because they are working on FF 13X2 along with some other lame brain projects. Kingdom Hearts and Versus are the only projects I even care about anymore from this company.

The main FF series is dead for the time being. Haven't had a good time play a FF game since 7 and 9.

Jeez don't you get it Square-Enix nobody liked 13 why even make a part 2. Such disconnect.

Focus on Versus which looks freaking awesome.

the longer it takes to get this game out, the longer it will take for KH3 to move forward and at this rate, it will have to be a PS4 title.

that gameplay looks amazing, it's a damn shame this game is still at least a year away, kind of ridiculous if you ask me, when 2 games that were announced well after this one was will be rleased before it (ff14 and 13-2)

I watched that recent trailer and it just further confirmed that this game seems about a million times more interesting than FFXIII.

Gameplay looks quite fun, very Kingdom Heart-ish. Good to see something outside simply cinematic.

New Final Fantasy Versus XIII Info? Hrm…




Square Enix has been making Final Fantasy Versus XIII for a long, long time. Gamers aren’t playing the game yet; rather, they’re playing the waiting for it game. The Versus designer, Tetsuya Nomura said the latest info about the title is ready to roll, but… But…. “We’re almost done with preparing the latest info for the game,” Nomura apparently told Japanese game magazine Famitsu in a yet unpublished interview.
