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...

godslim, FFXIII looked epic until it went multiplat, then it changed a lot from it's early concepts because the 360 version and the PS3 version just had to be on par with eachother. Versus XIII looks MUCH more epic than FFXIII. The fights look great on FFXIII, but Versus will be an action RPG, and those are always much more interesting. You wont be having to sit through seeing how good you did or badly you sucked during your fight hopefully. Kingdom Hearts II, in my opinion, was some of the greatest graphics on the PS2. Now upscale that you 1080p, get rid of the disney characters, and make it way darker and more realistic. Wow...pretty much the perfect game. I just wonder how the Summons will work if they put it in there, unless his multiple swords is like his summons or something, lol.

Somehow they manage to make this more and more interesting as time passes. In-game graphics the equal of the cutscenes? I guess that means that they're using the in-game engine.

The last time I saw that done well (in an RPG) was the Xenosaga games, especially Episode III. The cut scenes were excellent, and rendered by the game engine instead of clogging up the disc with lots of pre-rendered video.

Should be interesting.

When Square released incredible graphics in FVIII, I was pretty sure they'd be the first ones to make their in game graphics look as good as their pre-rendered CGI scenes.

Wait, you think FFVIII's ingame graphics were at good as it cutscenes? Have you played FFVIII recently?

There's always been a pretty big difference between Squares prerendered cutscenes and ingame graphics. That difference is less with XIII but it's still clearly there. If Verus XIII has no difference this I'll be new for Square.

OH YEA!!!!!!!! My biggest anticipated game which I'm sure won't come out until Q2 of 2011 has finally got some news. Not just this interview, but supposedly there was a small teaser showing Noctis waiting for a car on a bright sunny day and the car coming and him going and bam - that was it. God damn I want more info of the game! And obviously with Nomura behind it...the info is sure to be good. However if that WADA steps in...I can expect a whole "Oh...there's one more thing...everybody look at the screen surrounded by green lights!!!" (Xbox press conference E3)

I swear if that happens that would be the biggest middle finger square enix has given to us this generation.

I mean if they make this go multiplatform - they've done nothing but lie, lie, and lie.

I mean how the hell are they going to explain themselves? By putting a "Only on PS3 WORLDWIDE..........NOT!!!!" at the end of the trailer?!

As Jawknee says...I believe it will stay exclusive since it's only possible. Plus...Nomura back in late 2007 said it himself he and his team wants this game exclusive: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/837/837350p1.html.


This game is going to be so epic!

I really dont care that they go multiplatform (as most game companies are doing). Its when they have to compromise on a PS3 game's quality in order to bring to the 360, thats what really gets me.

If the company wants to optimize the game for PS3, bringing the best game possible, then subsequently try to cram everything on a DVD9 for the 360, watering the game down in the process, thats fine with me. Its when the PS3 version has to suffer as a result of the 360 version that pisses me off.

Exactly...

Still Lightning's not much better herself. Every damn trailer I see of her her expression is the same old neutral crap :|

She's a boring character, a mute just like Cloud was. I can stand characters like that, but they easily lose appeal, to me anyway.

Sasuke ripoff? Do you not know Japanese culture? That's a popular haircut for Japanese celebrity. This is the characters that appeal in Japanese culture, play Gears of War if you want to hang out with Arnold Swartzeneiger.

Lightning has boring straight hair, with tomboy personality, if any, and no body. People say she's a Cloud ripoff.

Help me out on this one fellas.

A heterosexual male gamer would prefer to use which kind of character in an RPG? Bearing in mind that the gamer will watch the character chosen running around the game for hours and hours, why would the heterosexual male gamer choose the beefy overtly male lead instead of the pretty lead?

Personally I prefer watching the pretty female lead bound around the screen for hours, it's easier on the eye.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Hey guys, I looked at the FFXIII site at amazon japan, and it has 3 stars from about 900 reviewers. I know it won't pull us back from buying it, besides, I don't understand any review since they are in japanese, but 3 stars?? Something going on with FFXIII and Square

If any japanese-speaker could please give us a general idea about what the complains are about, it'd be awesome

Here's the site:

I also read a lot of complains if they are true(and I hope not) it really looks like the 360 once again ruined the party.

list of party trolled by 360 .

Star Ocean (all the other games are on sony systems , they just wanted to have it before sony to troll with the...''360 is now the jrpg console'' glad that didn't work and isn't going to work never on the 360)

Resident Evil 5 (I remember the game was announced to be 20 hours of sp campaign..hey but why I completed that one in just 6 hours?? oh yeah it need to fit on a dvd)

Silent Hill and Devil May Cry 4 (well I cant blame the 360 for this one but still they give bad luck xD)

GTA( I remember rockstar having problems to make this fit on a dvd perhaps we miss things they wanted to put but got sacrificed by dvd)

Tekken6( A long wait and it just a good game but well I expected more....and like GTA dvd problems)

Metal Gear Franchise(Why rising needs to lose time getting a new engine?? the MGS4 its AWASOME!! o yeah it can only be done on PS3)

I hope to not put Final Fantasy on this list.

It's sad that when the PS2 was out. The XBOX games where always better in graphics even the multi-platform ones. I really hate that this isn't happening this generation.
PS3 should get the games better like XBOX use to do.

It's pretty unfair. Microsoft had the chance
back in the day and now they are jealous and the are just taking it off our hands.

At least we have exclusive games...

Probably because there's no news or update or anything about FFVXIII.

But I certainly expect Nomura to do what Naughty Dog did, and that's use EVERY space available on the 25GB Blu Ray and they'll probably get the award for 2010 RPG of the year with it.

Hey man, I know you dislike FF13 for your own opinion, but until you have sat down and played the game lighten up the heavy criticism. I am currently playing this game, and Lightning has her reasons for being the way she is, and she has shown some emotion in the game. You have yet to play it and I can understand that. I will not say spoilers on here, but I am going to say that the game is surely putting me through some emotions as I play it. Very well done.

Anyway, i think everyone knows that theres a reason why the characters act the way they do in final fantasy games because lets face it, square enix knows how to tell a good story, at least when it comes to their characters. All i know is that i keep on buying final fantasy games because i like getting into their stories. screw open ended rpgs with their half assed stories. I have no other gripes about open ended rpg other than them not putting enough story just because you can end up a few different ways.

I also used to think that, until 360 came and many of our exclusives (you know which ones I'm talking about) when multiplat, thus becoming an inferior product. Why?

1. Xbox360 = DVD
2 Microsoft = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Nevertheless I'm still getting FFXIII, even though it won't be what it was supposed to be

You know, I never bash the 360 - but I totally agree with this statement.

I don't remember having this problem in the last gen games. I don't remember developers having to come out and say that the games will be equal on both systems. But then again, every developer making multiplatform games creates a dumbed down version for the wii (because its inferior)....So why can't they do the same for the 360??

I just want everything fair. If Sony held out a year to create a more superior product, then devs should create games that maximize that potential. And if that makes a game better on the PS3 than the 360 - THEN SO BE IT! (Hell, we've already seen inferior PS3 ports, so now lets make up for it)

Does anyone remember the hype surrounding Legend of Dragoon back in the day? We kept hearing about how the FMV/CGI would be "just like a movie" and all that...and when it came out, we weren't entirely let down.

...look at it now, and see how far we've come in just over a decade. It's nuts.

Legend of Dragoon was beautiful!
The pre-rendered backgrounds are some of the bests out of the ps1 era. Still looks great

Still one of my favorite rpgs

But yes, game's nowadays look almost like FMVs...at least the high quality ones like Killzone 2, Uncharted2, etc.

Imagine another 10 years...
Im excited to see what games my kids will be playing. My dad talks about the "good old days" playing River Raid on his Atari 2600 with my grandfather. Things have come a long way since then. Though i do have a 2600 hooked up downstairs ;)

I love that game so much.... But I was maybe 8 when I got it, so I can't say I remember any hype but I definitely remember thinking how amazing the graphics were.

I'm looking forward to this one more than XIII. A new Kingdom Hearts would also be badass.

I can't wait for this . Ever since I saw the first couple of trailers , I have been eagerly waiting for more info about the gameplay and story . The dark tone and the near future setting make it more interesting than FF XIII , in my opinion . Plus the music in the trailers was so epic . Opera > Leona Lewis .

Well that just made my life a whole lot easier!
Thanks Tetsuya Nomura (Tetzy Nom-nom)! He's the man.

I'm also part of the group that find this somewhat more exiting than FFXIII for some reason. I just really don't know why.. am I that much of a fanboy?

No you're not. FF XIII feels like a commercial product but FF vs XIII feels like a proper game

I'm excited for both! It's funny how so many people prejudge the characters because they look a certain way. This is a video game for Christ's sakes, just because he/she looks a certain way doesn't mean that he/she will act the way that he/she looks. I'm just saying. Did you even ask yourself the reason for them acting so? Not all people are quiet types with no emotion simply because they like acting so. Maybe they had a tragic past that led them to being that way or some life-changing moment that forced them to alter their true selves to adapt to a ruthless and unforgiving world. There are many possibilities.

I just don't like it when people indulge in prejudice. Sorry for the rant.

Usually, when a character looks creppy, he is creepy. I mean, I would imagine the guy from FFversusXIII acting like Tidus, or Crash Bandicoot

hellish_devil: ...what? lol. I doubt he's going to go running around with his tongue sticking half way out of his mouth and he definitely knows how to use a sword, too. He doesn't seem anything like Tidus or Crash Bandicoot, the creators even said that they were keeping him from being an emotional character, one of their favorite things about Noctis.

Kingdom...Hearts...3. Don't ever utter those words again! This game and its' disappearance brings forth a situation where you ask a girl out on a date only to find out she's a no-show! Truly heartbreaking! This has never happened to me but I can only imagine the pain.

Since a few revelations about FFXIII now have me completely ignoring the game. I can now avert my "FF Alertness" part of my brain to FFvsXIII early. Huzzah!

Square Enix always seem to know how to push what can be done graphically which is great. But after seeing some of the summons from FFXIII I'm hoping Versus does not go down the same road. All this nonsense about them being able to turn into vehicles and crap has just made me cautious over what used to be a day one purchase for me. I see myself renting rather than owning it and if Versus ends up using the same silly summons as much as I'd like to support an exclusive I'd end up renting that too...but here's hoping it's not!

I'm just going to say it...
I didn't like FFVII. I do not understand why everyone thinks its this awesome great thing, and that it needs to be remade. I get the characters, i understand the story (as much as that is possible), and I know the importance it had in video game history, but remaking that one of all of them? I feel there are other games much more worthy (although less likely) of a remake. Such as Xenogears.
Still, I hope they don't make a FFVII remake, because I feel that it is done, and they should leave it as it is. They can try to improve it, but that might upset people. But for me, FFVI was the best FF title, although X and XII are both awesome, and XIII looks badass!
