FF Versus XIII To Be More Traditional?
In case some of the more bitter had already forgotten, Final Fantasy Versus XIII remains exclusive to the PlayStation 3. Yes, it's true that Final Fantasy XIII is now a multiplatform title, but due to the status of Versus, perhaps we should know a bit more about it...? After all, this just so happens to be a PlayStation-oriented site.
Square-Enix has been strangely tight-lipped about this game in the past, and while we do have a video here and there, we certainly haven't seen any gameplay just yet. Furthermore, we have heard that concrete information and details will remain on hold until FFXIII is officially out the door in Japan, which means we'll have to wait a few months. In the meantime, though, one source claims to have a baseline description of Versus. According to TalkPlayStation, this game will - in some ways - be more like the old-fashioned, traditional FF titles from the original PlayStation era. The combat will be real-time instead of turn-based, but as far as the exploring and storytelling are concerned, that'll be closer to games like FFVII and FFVIII. Hence, the return of the world map, exploring ancient ruins and towns, learning of the story sequentially via cut-scenes, etc.
However, as they cite no source, we can only count this information as rumor and speculation. But that brings us to an interesting point: considering we know very little about Final Fantasy Versus XIII, what do you think it'll be like? You can be as vague or specific as you wish, and if you really don't know, just tell us what you'd want it to be like. Personally, I want it to be a FFVII sequel. 'cough'
