Square-Enix Looking To Bolster FF Versus XIII Staff
Well, maybe this will speed things up.
Square-Enix apparently wants to kick development of Final Fantasy Versus XIII into high gear - or at least, a higher gear - as they are looking to add more talent to the development team. As found by Andriasang, Square-Enix is looking to add a certain number of planners, including a battle planner and level design planner. The former will have to work on the creation of enemy characters for an action/RPG; i.e., "creation of the battle concept for each chapter, field and dungeon, and formation of enemy character algorithms, parameter settings and other data work."
The level design planner needs to create level design "based off the scenario" and asks that the candidate have experience with action games. By the way, for the battle planner, they want someone with experience making "PS3 and Xbox 360 package games." It almost sounds as if development might not be as far along as we had hoped, but then again, perhaps the extra staffers are simply to speed things up. Maybe the game will be here sooner than expected.
Who knows? But we keep getting the feeling that it's only a matter of time before Versus XIII is announced for the 360, at which point we'll all look back to this news and go, "oh, I see, they needed to hire new people to help gimp the game so it'll work on 360." 'cough'
