Final Fantasy Versus XIII: “Look for news soon”

Says Square Enix's Members Twitter account.

Final Fantasy Versus XIII resurfaced this week as part of download content for Square Enix’s 3DS rhythm game Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. So when will we hear about the actual game itself? “Soon,” according to Square Enix.

Asked by a fan if it had any Versus XIII updates to share, Square Enix’s Members Twitter account replied, “nope, but look for news soon (soon can mean so many things though really…).”

Though, one must wonder how well-informed the account manager is, considering the statement following in parenthesis.

Thanks, FF-Reunion.

    Ugh, so vague -_-

    Hey. Let’s keep our hopes up! Soon can’t mean another 10 years right? RIGHT?!

      @L_kira: According to Square Enix soon can mean 4-5 months. The Kingdom Hearts 3D NA page was put up in December of last year advertising a localized trailer coming “soon” and yet there’s still nothing there.

    E3 re-unveiling maybe?

    Damn vague statement. It has been ages since a decent FF Versus XIII news released. I suppose Square Enix’s definition of ‘soon’ is ‘to wait for much longer’.

    I honestly believe this is the year we get a release date.

    If they can’t make it this year, then I think they should cancel the game.

    The rumors about new consoles are buzzing, and it looks like this gen might be headed towards retirement.

    Sure, they could start working on releasing the game via the new consoles, but that could just delay it even more.

    They have been way behind in terms of supporting the 360/PS3 in Japan, and just as they seem to be catching up, we seem to be moving on.

    If they have to stop and start working on an all new engine again at Square-Enix, then I think it would just be best to call it quits.

    I really don’t want to see that happen, so… I think this is the year! I’m trying to be positive about it.

    I realize they could have the new consoles dev kits already, but that doesn’t change anything if they have to make a new engine again.

    How long have they been working on this current new engine? Since 2007ish? I don’t want to wait another 5 years or so.

    It must me some kind of running gag at the company by now.

    Its going to be E3 because Square would be finish with Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC then they owe Sony Final Fantasy 14 0nline so what better way to reveal first PS3 gameplay of Final Fantasy 14 Online would be at E3 then also Sony said every developer is working on PS Vita so you can bet at E3 they’ll announce Final Fantasy Type 0 (because square already confirmed it releasing international google it) and a Kingdom Hearts game for PS Vita so E3 would be a perfect place for Square to blow Versus XIII up at Sonys E3 Conference. Also Normura said that the next time people see the game, it will be running on the ps3, it will have a demo and a trailer which also now they saying soon which means E3 is around the corner so E3. I believe they’re also going to rename it.

    Eh, long past caring to be honest. I’ll rekindle my interest for this game when we’re shown some proper footage.

  • Akira_Tenshi

    Was it even worth posting this?

  • captainhowdy

    Not really excited for this anymore.

    Until there’s a release date.

  • RedWolfe

    This game is reaching Duke Nukem Forever status lol.

    I fear for the quality of it at this point.

  • KainArkanos

    Yeah I’m pretty pissed that the soon card is still being played when, over a month ago, was the last time they said ‘soon’.

  • Locksus

    Yeah, it’s been pretty much over A YEAR since we last got decent news! It was a pretty cool trailer, though.

  • Jackle

    Why do I keep doing this to myself when I know that when I click on the article, I’m not going to get a concrete answer. I’m so silly.
