E3 2013: Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts III Make An Appearance

It was a little funny to hear Tetsuya Nomura say they "didn't have time" to talk about Final Fantasy Versus XIII at Sony's E3 press conference.

Even so, they were nice enough to deliver another very pretty trailer, which makes the game appear even more like an action game than an RPG. But in truth, that's precisely what many gamers were expecting. They figured it would probably be more of an action/RPG, like the iconic, entertaining Kingdom Hearts.

Except now it has become Final Fantasy XV.

...and speaking of Kingdom Hearts, they've confirmed that Kingdom Hearts III is currently in development for the PlayStation 4! It's finally coming after a full generation of fans hoping and praying that a true-blue sequel would be made for a PlayStation console. We have to wait for the PS4 and it's probably a ways off, but at least it's coming. It's also interesting to note that Final Fantasy XV will be on the PS4 as well, but is anyone really surprised that Versus XIII has morphed? Because I'm not.

You didn't imagine it, Ben. The title "Final Fantasy Versus XIII" at the end of the vid, exploded the "Versus XIII" part away and replaced it with "XV". It was pretty clear.

Versus is now XV.

I'm pretty pissed right now.

I held onto hope longer than most. This is the point ive finally accepted ff will never go back to it's iconic turn based gameplay. I find it incredibly depressing.

And how far off is versus from its original concept if it doesn't even take place in the xiii universe now?

I'm all for great new games, but this is just using brand power now. Final fantasy has never been an action/adventure. Make new games. Don't replace good ones. Sure, hooray we get a nice looking game. But I'm pissed because we have forever lost a perfectly good genre.

@Underdog15: The video also bears the words "Fabula Nova Crystallis". This indicates that the game is using the originally intended mythology to influence the story and the universe in which it takes place. There is nothing to suggest otherwise. Many people have not lost faith yet, myself included, and will look forward to the "darkest Final Fantasy yet".

I suppose the one difference we see in this trailer opposed to ones from E3s past, is the brightness/ time of day. It may mean nothing or it might mean Square Enix is attempting to lighten the game's atmosphere somewhat.

Farewell to Final Fantasy. Clearly this generation is full of mothers who smoked while pregnant, because we apparently have a ton of kids with ADHD that need to morph a traditionally patient franchise with flashy, fast paced button mashing.

You all know this will be a button masher... right? I'm willing to bet money on it.

Despite being upset that its not on the PS3, I was incredibly impressed with the footage from both games.

These two games basically sold me on the PS4.

I will get a PS4 the second KH3 comes out.

This was all spelled out in rumours months ago, so it's not a -huge- surprise, but I'm glad it's been confirmed.

The only question is what system(s) is it showing up on. Cause the same rumours that mentioned FFvXIII morphing into FFXV also said that Sony stepped in to help and is co-producing it. But why not state exclusive to PS4 then? Perhaps there's a Ps3 version as well? If this is remotely true, there's no way Xbone is getting a version. Even if Sony isn't co-producing, I can't see them bothering to make a Xbone port of this - not worth the effort based on FF's sales on 360.

Target date: My guess, by Christmas 2014. Lightning Returns is coming out Feb 2014, so no way is this coming out before that.

Considering how long it has been in development, you would think it wouldn't take them that long to finish it.

But considering it is now a main entry into the FF series, I would say it will be multiplat. Can't see them going back on it after XIII.

I'm happy KH3 is coming and Versus XIII is coming.

What I'm sad about is that Versus XIII becomes FFXV, and that basically means for the first time, a main title in the FF franchise is action-oriented.
You can't even treat it like Lightning Returns when it bears the name Final Fantasy XV........

There's this bittersweet feeling..........

So the game we all bought a PS3 for is now on the PS4 under the title of 'Final Fantasy XV'... you know what is the most unbearable thing it still does not have a release date! - I'm calling 2015 Q1

What infuriates me is that I was really hoping for a fresh start, I wanted FF15 to be completely new but now S-E is just lagging behind with Versus it has just become such a thorn in their side.

That's not to say it doesn't look good I watched with wonder while I believed it was still FFvXIII. Now knowing I don't have a 'new` Final Fantasy to look forward to I am disheartened. I'll be interested to see how the game looks in comparison to the previous gameplay footage on the PS3 - Was it already in development for the PS4 when we saw that tech demo in Jan 2011?

Now I am just thinking what of Final Fantasy XVI.... will that even be on the PS4 how long do I have to wait for a fresh FF experience...

Then there is Kingdom Hearts III after 10 years of splattering the series on 6 different consoles it has finally delivered the sequel we have been waiting for. I loved the look of the art style you can just see the difference unlike most catroonish games - but how long now? Once again 2015

The problem is previously these games were system sellers for me... now that I wont be getting them for a while... I have no game that warrants me to buy the PS4 for ages - Had MGS5 been a PS4 title day one purchase same if Versus... XV was a launch title but in how long I have waited I will not continue to do so, when its out I'll consider it but for now the only thing that impressed me was the choices Sony made on the PS4's backhand to Microsofts console.

But it is now 5am in the UK so I shall sleep on it, but if this is Final Fantasy XV they had better make it their primary title, instead of mess Versus went through in the PS3 era.

It was great to be able to see Versus XIII, renamed XV, and KH3 this E3. The downside of it though is that it seems to be only for PS4. I won't be getting PS4 immediately the day it releases but I guess at least we still got FFX HD and KH HD games releasing on the PS3.

I can't say I understand the frustration. At all. So what if XV (the-game-formerly-known-as-VsXIII) has an over-the-top action feel to it? I think it looks 1) incredible, 2) exciting, and 3) refreshing. I guess that is my question... Why can't the FF series take a turn for the action? They went SRPG with it and people loved it. They attempted to breathe new life into the series with XIII and failed. Sure, XIII's battle system was unique enough, but that was about it. It looks as though XV is going to introduce true environment interaction, which is something that has never really been a great factor in the previous entries. For me, I haven't been this excited about a FF release since IX (no, I did not like X). Normally, I am one that really clings to the if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it way of things, but I believe this is a step in the right direction. Though the action seems to be on an unprecedented scale, I have no reason to believe the RPG experience of the game will be any less rewarding.

Why can't FF turn into an action series? Because its never been an action series. And there are already plenty of great action series, but RPG series are either changing to action or dying out. And for no reason! The previous, traditional FFs all sold great, but S-E decided to throw that successful formula away apparently for the lulz and this game confirms what a lot of us had feared but didn't want to accept for a long time: that Final Fantasy no longer has any interest in being the game many of us desperately want it to be. That's where the frustration comes from.

And while you may not have any reason to think that it will be a lessened RPG experience, I have three: FFXIII, FFXIII-2, and Lightning Returns.

HEY GUYZZZ..

Btw FFVX is now confirmed as an exclusive to PS3 and PS4.

Proof: https://www.facebook.com/PlayStation?hc_location=timeline

^ (Offical Playstation Facebook)

Also, whilst they haven't announced the platform exclusivity of Kingdom Hearts III, I can honestly bet that if Xbox One doesn't fare well for Microsoft, Square will retract and also make it a PS4 exclusive.

Now that the twat, Wada, has been fired, I want to see Square make it up to Sony and realise how much of an inconsiderate mess of a company they've been throughout the ENTIRE generation. The number XIII was so disastrous and superstitously unlucky that it crapped on XIV as well. That was the lowest Square-Enix has ever dropped. I mean look at it, we're still await for the piece of sh*t Lightning Returns game now. Square nearly died once again, and I seriously hope they've learned from this. I want them to return to making a new glorious era, and so that could be along side another golden Sony era, the PS4.

The FFversusXIII trailer to change to FFXV was cheeky, but I honestly liked it. I liked it because it's as if they're openly admitting their mistakes of the past, and want to dissociate - from FFXIII - a title which should have been a great Final Fantasy game, into a completely new Final Fantasy title of its own: Final Fantasy XV.

Yeah, no sh*t, but the point is that NO ONE will be officially calling it a "Versus" game, hence why I used quotation marks, just incase you didn't get my point. Seems you did.

The fact is, if you were to get really technical, the title Versus XIII doesn't exist.

More interested in the Kingdom Hearts HD remasters and KHIII, personally. :-) That looks to retain much of the spirit of most of the past entries, from the very early impressions thus far. I have the first two for PS2, I think I came close to finishing the first and haven't even opened the second yet. I think I'd rather wait for the upgraded versions.

Final Fantasy VII was my first PS1 game, that I don't think I quite finished a playthrough on, but really liked it. Unfortunately the last disc ended up having a deep gash because, I think a friend had temporarily placed it on the floor and the same or another friend had, accidentally I'm sure, stepped on it and slid it a bit across the floor. I think I had tried or seen a bit of FFVIII. It seemed interesting, but I don't recall having had experience with the game beyond that. For the PS2 I bought and still have FFXII and liked it, but haven't completed a playthrough on that either. I do like them, but I tend to prefer seeing the armor, weapons and enhancements reflected on the characters.

Encompassing FF as a whole, it seems quite apparent the games have distanced themselves a lot in terms of gameplay starting with XII, no? Or was it XI (which was an MMORPG from what I seem to recall)? I can understand that there are some gamers who like the direction it's going in, but I suspect most of them that do, are not the fans that have grown(up) with the series since it's roots. Therefor I also very much understand the gamers who are upset about not getting experiences closer to their more familiar, cherished and as a result not a return to their ideal FF style. I can understand the view that many are feeling abandoned and neglected by SE, especially regarding the Final Fantasy franchise. In summary I think it would be ideal to have a series of games returning to the core of what made FF what it was and they probably could have (and most old school hardcore fans would probably arguy, SHOULD HAVE) started spin-offs, which is what the last few iterations were to many anyway. Just a reflection of what many seem to state or imply in the comments when regarding Square Enix and Final Fantasy.
