Nomura Promises "Proper" Versus XIII Unveiling In January
You know, we've all been waiting for a "proper" look at Final Fantasy Versus XIII. They said we'd get it during the first part of 2010...now it seems it'll be here first thing 2011.
During their behind-closed-doors showing of their newest FF title at last week's Tokyo Game Show, Square-Enix revealed a date for the upcoming "Fabula Nova Crystallis Conference:" January 11, 2011. And thanks to new info from producer Tetsuya Nomura in the most recent Famitsu, we've learned the meeting will highlight Versus XIII, Agito XIII and some "unrelated games" as well. Nomura's reason for the delay? He wanted the development team to give Versus XIII the aforementioned "proper unveiling" at the conference, so they didn't bring much to E3 or TGS. Even better, the Fabula conference is meant for the press, which means we should definitely see new footage and details on the Internet come January. Lastly, Square-Enix intends to announce new Dissidia characters; we already know Lightning from FFXIII will be featured in the freshly announced sequel, which will drop next year.
Dare we hope for a release date for Versus XIII at the conference? Maybe it'll be a big holiday title for the PlayStation 3...but above all else, we'd really like to get an extended look at some gameplay. 30 seconds of blurry footage at TGS isn't really enough.
