Versus XIII No Longer Sold on Amazon

That’s right, the massive online retailer has ceased offering Versus XIII for pre-order, listing it now as unavailable and directing users to other sellers. Uncertain release dates and potential vaporware has never stopped Amazon from taking pre-orders before, and what this means remains unclear. The timing, however, is certainly interesting. E3 begins in just a little over a week, and Square Enix continues to tease us with each passing day. Whatever it is that’s going on with this title, it’s quite possible we’ll only have to wait a short while to find out.

In the meantime, feel like discussing? Head on down to the forums!

The official Japanese Square Enix site has been updated today to add Lightning Returns and X|X-2 HD events to its E3 schedule. The list gives a good idea of what you can expect, and promises interviews and more.

On June 12th, Kitase and Toriyama themselves will be available to answer Twitter and Facebook questions posed by fans. Trendy and modern! But that’s not all. A little later on the same day the two will be giving an interview that’s sure to drizzle on a few more sweet, sweet details. Vigilant fans, E3 is your time. Both titles are also said to be playable on the floor, so expect even more juicy delights down the road, especially where Lightning Returns is concerned.

So far, there are a few big titles missing from E3- including the next-gen Final Fantasy we were promised. But with the gradual leak of details the site is using to tease us, keep your eyes glued to this space. This isn’t the last we’ll hear before E3.



Nomura to Speak Again During Square-Enix Merchandise Radio

Square-Enix’s merchandise broadcast show, mdRadio, is due for its second episode at the end of May- so in other words, very soon. Last month, Tetsuya Nomura surprised us all by appearing and speaking on the show about Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Unsurprisingly, we were asked yet again to wait. Less expected was Nomura’s apology to fans for the long wait and his promise that Versus XIII’s next appearance had been scheduled.

It appears that the man himself will be speaking yet again when this promised second episode hits. What we can expect from him is anyone’s guess, particularly given how much big news hits around this time every year. One thing’s nearly certain though: We will probably be asked to wait.

Stay tuned on this space for developments.

Nomura: Versus XIII Appearance Date Set

Tags: , ,

Being asked to wait is more than familiar to any fan out there anticipating Versus XIII, so it should come as no surprise that Tetsuya Nomura has requested our patience yet again. Appearing on Square Enix Merchandise Radio as a special guest, it was inevitable for Nomura to be asked for information on the highly-anticipated ever-delayed title. He had a few interesting things to say.

He explains that the situation for Versus XIII is a “delicate” one within Square Enix, but that a definite date for Versus’ next reveal has been set. He goes on to muse that the reasoning behind the constant silence concerning Versus might be able to be explained as well. Then, of course, he does what we’d all expect and apologizes while asking us to hold on just a bit longer.

As always, fans can only speculate what this means for the game. There are certainly rumors and more to be had concerning the title, including the persistent buzz of a re-branding as Final Fantasy XV. With E3 less than two months away- and a promise from Shinji Hashimoto that a next-gen Final Fantasy title will be present- one might be able to hazard a guess as to when Versus will next appear. Always remember though that nothing is certain until we next see this near-mythical title in the flesh once more.

Is Noctis a Girl? Nomura Drops Twitter Bombshell
Date: March 31st, 2013 Author: Whiplash
News Category: Final Fantasy Versus XIII

 

Is Noctis actually a woman? We’ve been assuming since 2006 that he is, well, a he, but a recent tweet from creator Tetsuya Nomura has left us reassessing that. In response to a compliment made about the character on Twitter, the Versus director replied, “if u like noct now wait til u see her @E3 this year #FinalFantasyVersusXIII”.The tweet in question

The tweet has since been deleted but fortunately the member who first saw the it thought to take a screenshot. Could Noctis really be a girl? Noctis being female would go a long way towards explaining ‘his’ delicate features and feminine bone structure. All we know for certain about the character’s background so far is that s/he is a crown prince, could a possible plot point be that her father disguised her as a boy so she could succeed him? In Japan, a woman cannot inherit the throne; could Nomura have been inspired by this when developing the game?

A rival theory, postulated by staff member DeathPenalty, suggests that the sex change only came about after production on the game began, due to the runaway success of Final Fantasy XIII heroine and PS3 icon Lightning. Nomura has been reportedly trying to make up lately for ground lost to rival and colleague Toriyama in the Number 1 Director-Writer race at Square Enix.

Also worth noting is that Noctina would not be the first Final Fantasy character to be secretly female. Final Fantasy V’s Faris was famously revealed to be female, not male, in a shocking plot twist that came about two lines after she’d been introduced to you.

Oh, and Versus is apparently going to be at E3 this year, so you know, there’s that.
Thanks to forum member : cathryn : for finding the tweet!



Roen, clothing designer for the upcoming and long-awaited Final Fantasy Versus XIII is listing the game in their official biography as “Final Fantasy 15 (tentative).” This is listed in the year that S-E made their partnership with Roen and announced them for Versus XIII, with Versus itself being noticeably absent from the company’s biography for that year. Coincidence? Probably not!

Sources say that this name has actually been in place on the Roen site since July of last year, which means that if this is true that it’s been in the works for nearly a year now if not more. If that’s the case, then S-E has been keeping a lot under wraps for a very long time. With the promise by Versus producer Shinji Hashimoto to reveal a next-gen Final Fantasy title at E3, one can only imagine what the future has in store for Versus. Remember though that nothing’s been certain with this game for over six years.

Now is certainly the time to discuss.

Edit: Since this post, the Roen site has been edited to correct the name back to Final Fantasy Versus XIII.



Shinji Hashimoto Promises Next-Gen Final Fantasy at E3

Tags: , , ,

Today, Sony held a massive event revealing its new console- The PS4- and detailings its features.  Present were several bigwigs of various game companies there to show their support.  Among them were two Square-Enix representatives.  The first, Yoshihisa Hashimoto, presented Agni’s Philosophy once again.  Following his presentation, Shinji Hashimoto, brand manager for Square-Enix and producer of the Kingdom Hearts series and Final Fantasy Versus XIII, left us with one tantalizing treat.  He took just a moment on the stage to promise us that we would see a next generation Final Fantasy title at this year’s E3, and that we should look forward to it.

Fly, my pretties! Fly and speculate!



Yeah. Perfume. Really.

I just… no forget it. I have nothing to say.

Have a picture and a link to the guy’s twitter post.

The perfume is called “Noctis” Eau de Toilette. It goes with the Cloud, Sephiroth and Lightning perfumes released in the past. Come back next week for the long awaited release of the official Final Fantasy branded super hair gel.

…urgh, I guess I have to say SOMETHING positive. Considering that they’re launching merchandise, it’s possible that we might see Versus reappear in the spotlight in the upcoming months. We’ll have to wait and see.

So when can you can aid our brave and seemingly undying protagonist as she fights to save the world within 13 days? Sometime this Autumn (that’s the northern hemisphere’s autumn, my southern hemisphere brethren), or “Faaaawwwwwl”, if you’re one of them yankee types.

Accompanying this announcement is a bunch of shiny screenshots (showing recently-revealed character Lumina, as well as some of Lightning’s questionable wardrobe) and a new trailer. Some of the screenshots are duplicates from the last batch, I don’t know how they got in there, but just enjoy them again because removing them is an absolute chore. Lightning’s on a phone, that’s adorable, everyone should see that more than once.



That’s right, folks! The people over at Square Enix have decided that now is the time to provide a brief description about one of the new characters that will be appearing in the upcoming Lightning Returns. According to the translation provided, it states that this new character will be named “Lumina”, and is described as being a loli-goth version of Serah, Lightning’s sister who we all know and (sometimes) love. Lumina will either help or hinder Lightning throughout her journey (ooh, suspense!); other than that, no further details have come to light as of yet. As always, however, we will keep you updated!

In addition, some of the costumes that Lightning will be able to wear have been further described. “Dark Muse” is the official name for the costume she wears in the Jump Festa trailer, and has a grill-shaped shield, chaps, and some kind of camouflage overcoat. “Alone in the Dust” is the name of the costume that has very samurai-esque features.

Update: And here’s a scan showing off this “new” character.

Thanks to Agent Dunham for the info!
