FF Versus XIII: CGI And In-Game Visuals Are Identical?
There was a time when we'd hear this claim and scoff, knowing the technology simply wouldn't allow it. These days, though, after seeing the unbelievable transitions between cut-scene and real-time in games like Uncharted 2, we're far more inclined to believe it.
Although Final Fantasy XIII has been hogging all the headlines lately, its comrade in arms is still in development and we assume people are still interested. According to PS3Center citing a recent Japanese magazine interview with Square-Enix's Tetsuya Nomura, Final Fantasy Versus XIII is lookin' pretty damn good. First and foremost is the claim that the graphics have been "upgraded," so "there is no real difference" between the CGI and in-game visuals. Also, as some of you have already rightfully guessed, this particular entry can indeed be called a "dark" Final Fantasy, atmosphere and tone-wise. Nomura also says to expect more details and info some time early next year, which we've heard before and why we'll be keeping a close eye on the Internet in January and February. Lastly, it seems Nomura is working on another title and while he won't say what it is exactly, we know it's "not a new IP." Kingdom Hearts 3? The Final Fantasy VII remake? Oh, let's not go down that depressing path again. I'm not sure I can handle it.
Although FFXIII is a lot closer (and it's already out in Japan), the more time passes, the closer we come to Versus XIII, which might really turn a lot of heads in 2010...
