In a recent interview with Famtisu Magazine, Nomura has spoken about Final Fantasy Versus XIII while basically saying nothing. He also confirmed that the development of Square-Enix’s remake of the excellent Final Fantasy X in HD is underway.
The graphics have evolved beyond the fairly impressive trailer shown last year and have improved considerably. A few scenes which do not require much ‘player control’ have been remade in CG to wow audiences with Square’s famous prerendered CG prowess, including the scene where Noctis meets Stella for the first time. Square decided to drop the amount of CG in the latest iteration of the series, Final Fantasy XIII-2, so it’s nice to hear the tradition will continue with Versus.
Said trailer was not previously running on Playstation 3 hardware, however the next time we get a glimpse of Versus it will be running on an actual PS3, giving a better idea of how the game will actually look.
Finally, the event known as the Square Enix 1st Production Department Premier which was held last year will not take place again, which isn’t much of a surprise considering Versus is the only Fabula Nova Crystallis game at the moment.
While we’re all hoping for a full blown public display and perhaps even a release date for Final Fantasy Versus XIII, we can only sit and wait as these announcements have no specific event or date attached. Let’s hope when they actually do show something it will live up to our increasingly heightening expectations.Related posts:
