Rumor: Final Fantasy Versus XIII renamed XV, moved to PS4

Sony assisting Square Enix with development, claims rumor.

Square Enix’s PlayStation 3 action RPG Final Fantasy Versus XIII has been renamed Final Fantasy XV and is in joint development with Sony for PlayStation 4, according to a VGLeaks rumor. 

Development on the game was supposedly stopped and moved to Sony’s new console in 2011. The rumor claims Sony’s studios are assisting Square Enix with the game’s assets, “among other tasks.”

The rumor comes hot off the heels of Roen, which designed clothes in Final Fantasy Versus XIII, listing the game as “Final Fantasy 15” on their website.

  • DarthBrian

    Yeah, with all the rumors and such and how long it’s taken to come out, I really wouldn’t be surprised.

    And if Sony’s engineers are helping, it’s obviously going to stay exclusive to a Sony console, be it PS3 or PS4 or both.

    Either way…

    WANT!!!

    (also want KH HD 1.5 Remix, FFX HD, Lightning Returns, etc.)

    • GaySkull

      oh it looks like FF VII once again

      • JoJo_649

        more like Metal Gear Solid 4, that game NEVER left the PS3.

  • Azure

    E3!!! I Can’t Wait T_______T.

  • ギャビン

    If Sony gets this exclusively it guarantees that I buy a PS4.

    • Kurisu Makise

      I’ll be there at launch for sure if this pans out! However, I believe everything except Sony assisting Square Enix with this game. It was exclusive before so I don’t see why it wouldn’t be exclusive now just because it finally got main status. Though if it truly is FFXV, I hope to hear plans of FFXVI also, just so we can see something fresh in the mainline.

    • http://gematsu.com/author/ro-kurorai 浪黒雷 (Roland Gmyrek)

      Oh the sweet Japanese LE console will murder my wallet but I won’t be able to resist. Also glad to read Sony assist them as it’s a guaranteed PS4 exclusive then. What Nomura showed on PS3 was beautiful, on PS4 he might show what the hardware is really capable of in its early days *drools*.

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    At this point I really just want the game to be released, however, if this is true I can’t help but feel a little cheated. This was THE reason I got a PS3, and if I have to spend hundreds of dollars on a whole other console to finally play it, I’m gonna feel scammed.

    I was promised this game on PS3. Keep your promises SE.

    That being said, I doubt this is true for one reason: SE won’t return [main series] Final Fantasy to its Sony exclusive state. It just doesn’t make sense from a business perspective (unless Sony is paying the bills…) XIII was the best selling FF game ever, and its multiplatform status is one of the main reasons for that. SE isn’t going to purposely make a decision to make less money. Furthermore, it’ll isolate any new fans they recruited with the multiplat move. This just wouldn’t make sense, IMHO.

    • http://youtube.com/thegaminghself MrShinkara

      I’m sorry but FF 13 is not even close to the best selling FF game ever. 7, 8, 9, and 10 have all sold better.

      Sony is actually the largest shareholder of SE so it wouldn’t be completely out of the realm of possibilty.

      • GetOffMy_Lawn

        Huh, I guess I was mistaken. And I was unaware of Sony being a shareholder of SE.
        However I’m not really arguing that it is impossible, as much as I think it would be a mistake.
        For me it really comes down to the fact I REALLY want to play this game, but I don’t think it’s fair that I have to spend hundreds of dollars on a brand new console when they promised it would be on the one I bought 6 years ago.

        • Lele Mett

          No your right. FF 13 sold 6.7mil world wide. thats more than 9 and 10 and 12. Its number 3 in highest selling FF. FF 8 is number 2 with 8 mil and 7 is number 1 with 10. SE even said its the highest selling FF since 8.

          • rebellion14

            FF XIII is the fourth best selling FF, FF X sold 8.05 mil worldwide which would make it 3rd, 2nd is FF 8 with 8.15 mil and 1st is FF VII with 10 mil and are all exclusives.So business wise going back to exclusives makes sense.

            I am good with this decision if it’s true, and it makes sense to me this games looks like something that should be on a level on it’s own not a spinoff to a mediocre series (at least to me) and would give reasons for people to buy a PS4. I was going to anyway but now I have a incentive.

        • http://youtube.com/thegaminghself MrShinkara

          Yeah I’m with you on that too. I’ve been looking forward to this game forever. I’d buy a PS4 for it but it kind of sucks that we have to :P

      • Lele Mett

        Your wrong. FF13 sold 6.7 mil world wide. Thast more that 10 and 9 and 12. SE said it was the fastest selling FF since 8. 8 sold like 8 mil and FF7 is the higest with a 10 mil. That is really close to best selling FF, Its number 3.

        • Raiyu

          10 sold 8 million actually. You’re right about everything else though.

          Either way, he’s still not wrong. He proved XIII wasn’t the best selling FF ever. XIII would be the fourth best selling, despite being multiplatform being beaten by exclusive Final Fantasy games.

          • http://youtube.com/thegaminghself MrShinkara

            If you count the digital sales for FF9 as a PS One classic who knows how many copies it’s sold by now.

            • Elvick

              Wonder how much FFVII has sold then… it’s usually always the #1 selling PSone Classic every month on NA’s PSN.

      • http://www.facebook.com/InternationalGamer1 Christopher Bosak

        besides FF13 games while multi-platform just didn’t sell as well on Xbox 360 compared to PS3.

        It’s obvious a Majority of Xbox owners mainly play FPS games more than anything. They don’t care much about Final Fantasy.

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        Correction: Sony is the 3rd largest shareholder of SE…
        http://www.hd.square-enix.com/eng/ir/stock/shareholder.html

        With 7, 8, 9 released as PS One Classic, SE must be swimming in cash judging by NA’s PSN sales…

        • http://youtube.com/thegaminghself MrShinkara

          I stand corrected! I guess I meant largest holder outside of Fukushima, otherwise that would technically make SE a 1st party Sony studio xD

    • DarthBrian

      They’re probably losing more sales just by going next-gen than by it being exclusive to one platform.

      Also, if Sony is helping develop, then yes, they are paying the bills. :p

      I do agree with the first part of your comment though. Very disappointing that the game isn’t on PS3. But oh well, life goes on. :(

      • GetOffMy_Lawn

        Hmmm, good point.
        I just can’t help feel a little cheated out of an experience. It’s like you buy a ticket to Disney World so you can go meet Mickey Mouse, only after you arrive and pay for your plane, hotel, and tickets, a park worker tells you “Mickey’s been moved to a different park. Would you like to buy a ticket for that park? =)”

        • DarthBrian

          Well, Disneyland has sold out before and then they ask you if you’d like to buy a ticket to California Adventure instead. So, I know what you mean. :p

        • Tetsu

          “sorry, but the princess is in another castle!”

    • CirnoTheStrongest

      Don’t buy a game system for an unreleased game?

      Anyway, didn’t you get any enjoyment out of your PS3? If so, then who cares if the original reason was a waste? You still got lots of fun out of it ~

      If you didn’t like your PS3 well…then…See the first comment ^_^;

      • GetOffMy_Lawn

        Obviously I got enjoyment out of it, but that’s really besides the point. When developers make a promise they should keep it. Really is simple as that. :l
        And as far as the first comment goes, that is sort of my point. I don’t want to buy a PS4 for a couple years.

        • CirnoTheStrongest

          Yeah, I don’t plan on getting a PS4 early on unless a game I really like comes out for it.

          And, they’re a company. Things change. I would not take a promise from a business nearly as seriously as a promise from an individual. A contract would be a different matter of course.

    • ddsfan2

      I don’t think that the multi-platform release made a huge difference in total units sold, (obviously it helped make the game much more profitable though) at least if vgchartz figures are accurate. (I don’t know if they were corrected based on available sales data or not) I’m sure that it helped, but I don’t think that it amounted to more than 15% of the sales, and even that I think is very optimistic. Beyond that, many of those people, particularly in the US, probably would have purchased the game on the PS3 if it were exclusive. If anything, FF13 going multiplatform sold more 360s than it did anything else, since I’m sure that many people held off getting a PS3 indefinitely in favor of its competitor once they heard it was no longer exclusive.

      I know that this is largely anecdotal, but I know a lot of 360 owners, (and I am one as well) but I have not yet met a single person (as in, not on the internet) who owns the 360 version, whereas in spite of the fact that I know about the same number of PS3 owners, almost all of whom own or owned the PS3 version.

      The game was marketed where I live (US) very well though, especially for the 360. (granted, advertising at sporting events probably didn’t help sales very much)

      I think going multiplatform is very much like a chicken and egg situation. Because of FF13 going multi platform, it became essential for FF13 to go multiplatform. (although obviously many other high-profile releases were part of this, I thought it sounded funnier that way)

      Note: I’m sure that FF13 on the 360 was very profitable for Square-Enix, however, particularly because I assume that Microsoft footed much of the advertising bills and probably paid for other costs as well. Not to mention that the competition most likely caused Sony to pay them as well for temporary exclusivity in Asian regions.

    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

      You have my sympathy on the first part of your comment…

      “SE won’t return [main series] Final Fantasy to its Sony exclusive state. It just doesn’t make sense from a business perspective”
      Bigger risks = bigger rewards applies here…. If SE screws up the multiplaform plan, they will feeling “Ouch” in their finance sheets… Take a look at what happened to 38 Studios, going all out at once and got shut down later on…

      ” XIII was the best selling FF game ever, and its multiplatform status is one of the main reasons for that”
      Best selling? Not really… Best selling in this Gen? Yeah…. However, the direct sequel(XIII-2) sold around 1/3 of FFXIII despite being multiplaform..

  • Potionzmaster

    Sony is helping them out? Wow, that’s some pretty interesting and awesome news! The movement to PS4 is also in line with other recent rumors.
    Hope we hear something at E3 (seems pretty likely, with all these rumors popping up, actually :D )

  • Alos88

    It wouldn’t surprise me, there was no cameo of Noctis in XIII (I’m pretty sure the games were originally going to have a little crossover plotwise) so it’s not like it wouldn’t make sense to make it its own numbered title.

    • DarthBrian

      They were only supposed to be related by theme. No characters were supposed to cross over. Type-0 (previously Agito XIII) didn’t have any XIII characters in it either and had nothing to do with FFXIII.

  • LordKaiser

    Good bye Versus XIII. By the time I get a PS4 if I ever get 1 you’ll be out of print.

    • http://xanhisam.deviantart.com/ xanhisam

      Story of my life :(

    • DesmaX

      B-but. You could buy it on the PSN

      • LordKaiser

        I’m against digital distribution for big games. It’s the reason why I never bought Fist of the North Star 2.

        • 新阿修羅(ShinAsura)

          Gamestop employee?

          • LordKaiser

            No but I want the games I buy to be mine so I can sell them if I need to. Also I don’t like to delete and re-download digital games and I don’t want to buy another hard drive.

            • Rezar

              Kind of reminds me of my problem with the PS3. I keep having to delete installed stuff to make room for a new PS3 game.

              • http://twitter.com/GematsuZero Zero

                I updated my hard drive for this very reason. Quite annoying.

    • Chardo

      why not simply getting the game first and the console later? I did that with Etrian odyssey 4

      • LordKaiser

        I bought once Windwalker just because it came with Ocarina of time and OoT Master Quest and guess what. i never bought a Wii or Gamecube so I bought them for nothing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/micheal.scott.315 Micheal Scott

    well thats one way to get people to buy your console
    sony trying anything now.
    Xbox lets see what you got nexts

  • SirAuron14

    wow current gen was terrible for FF. not a single good FFX game would come out if FFX counts.

  • Raiyu

    Would not be surprised. It’s been hinted at for a while now.

  • 新阿修羅(ShinAsura)

    I called it

  • zangetsukakashi

    lolz. announced when the ps3 first came out, and will be out on ps4? funny stuff

    • Kurisu Makise

      I bought a PS3 for Versus XIII, so I kind of feel I should be livid by all this but…I guess I just want to play the game at this point and hey icing on the PS4 cake.

  • Unknown

    Wasn’t the listing on Roen website later disproved?

    • Michael Garling

      They removed it, but it was certainly there for a while.

  • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

    I said this exact thing like 4 months ago :

  • Solomon_Kano

    Huh. Now that would be a perfect way to guarantee it remains exclusive — and guarantee the PS4 the no. 1 spot early on. Sounds sensible.

    Come on, E3!

  • LnTK

    wtf ??????????????????? , waiting this game since 2009 and now they say will be for ps4 dont f… kinding with me :S:S …

    • Michael Garling

      2009? Dude this thing was shown off in 2006… we’ve been waiting wayyyy longer than ’09.

  • Gaara D.Dragon

    This is actually the first rumor that makes sense.

    Sony themselves actively helping would be the only reason for Square to release a main line game on a new console so close to the launch date.

  • Bloodios

    According to the latest leaks from a reliable source, a joined project between SCEI and Square Enix will be revealed at this year’s E3. The project is the result of the merging of Final Fantasy Versus XIII and The Last Guardian. The source stated that the development of both the above mentioned titles were brought to a complete halt due to technical difficulties, which ultimately led to merging of the two. Team ICO is one of development teams involved in the project. The project is promised to deliver a “synesthetic RPG” experience, which includes “rich, alluring narratives”, “memorable and soothing soundtracks”, and “captivating, artistic visual”. The project is currently known by the working title of “The Last Fantasy” and is being developed exclusively for the PlayStation 4.

    Update: The game will be known in Japan as Hitokui no Ōji Nokutisu.

    I’m so done with rumors about this game, and the last guardian, etc… I even made jokes the last few times…

    I’ll just be repeating myself once again… It doesn’t matter what I type here, I’ve posted it before no doubt.

    I’m just going to wait for some official announcements. I’m past speculating on rumors. I’m really tired of waiting Square-Enix.

    • Rezar

      I’m with you Zero. Especially when it comes to next-gen consoles. Like the rumor the PS4 wouldn’t allow use games which turned out to be false. The word rumor is there for a reason.

  • TensaiBaka

    If this is rumor is confirmed, most likely the game will release next year or this year as a launch title for PS4.

    Edit I assuming at E3, SE will show FFXV(FFVersus) as well as few bits of LR:FFXIII. As for Type-0, i’ll wait till some sort of speculation or TGS 2013 :D

  • DragonSix

    So, not only did it delay itself, this game is also delaying The Last Guardian (by taking Sony Japan’s time too). That’s crazy (but I do hope it turns out good).

  • MosquitoLemon

    On semi-related news, did they ever strike a Type-0 localization out of existence?

  • Prodigy-X

    Yessss!!!!!!!!!! Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!

  • Aldridge517

    If true, this is my reason to buy a PS4.

  • ddsfan2

    I would not be in any way surprised if this rumor turns out to be completely accurate. Both the timeline, name change, and potential involvement with Sony. (although more emphasis on the first two indicators)

    The assets from the previous trailers are modern enough that almost everything could be reused on FF15 without throwing much away. I guess they would need to adjust the world and story to correspond to FF15, but then again, there isn’t any specific rule that says that they can only use that game world in FF13 based games.

    I doubt most fans would even notice or care if they used the FFv13 engine/story/characters/gameplay verbatim for FF15, just as many people who played FF12 are probably unaware that it shares a world (Ivalice) with FFT and most likely other Squeenix games.

    Edit: I’m actually pretty amazed that Sony hasn’t increased their involvement with the studio, since having an exclusive game of this profile would definitely help console sales among RPG fans, probably even more so than the Waterfall titles for the Wii.

  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

    Sony do have some shares on Square Enix… If that says something…

    I guess it’s for the best to move to PS4 even if it’s a rumor…

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Sony has 8% of shares in Square

  • Souji Tendou

    Hahahahahahahaha. Oh god, my stomach, I get a good laugh this morning. I know this is a rumor but still………. ahahahahaha.

  • YangTerlupakan

    I WONDER WHY NO ONE IN GEMATSU NOT ASK ONE THING AFTER READ THIS NEWS:

    “…is we can trust VGLeaks for this info?????????…..”

  • Tetsu

    I know there’s a lot of people upset here about this game coming to ps4 (if it is indeed true.) And there’s a lot of people who are really excited about it coming to ps4 (again if the rumor is true.)
    But IF it does, it will do remarkable things for the console. It will usher in a new life for JRPGs, because all of the companies and developers out there will see how many people want that experience. And it’ll increase it’s sales for the console as well, which can only bring good things. Companies want games on consoles that sell well, which again brings more games to us, the fans.

    While it does suck that the game may be effected on ps3, it does mean great things for ps4.

    But here’s hoping we get it on both consoles! XD

    • LordKaiser

      This would be solved if the PS4 had at least some kind of socket so people can buy a Cell separately or something to provide PS3 retro-compatibility without re-buying all the crap all over again.

      It would be good to stay logged on just 1 console and sell the PS3 to help funding the PS4 and free space in the Living room. I hope we get a PS3 version.

  • Kanok Timkhlai

    It’s going to be multi-platform soon.

    • http://gematsu.com/author/ro-kurorai 浪黒雷 (Roland Gmyrek)

      I beg to differ. Can’t imagine Sony helping out on a game that will be released on Xbox3 as well ;)
      Nomura would oppose a multi-platform decision anyways, as he usually works on one system per game only :P

  • Elvick

    I’d be okay with this. I had way more reasons for buying a PS3 than just this game. I think it’d be silly for it not to be a PS3/PS4 game though.

    Either way, I just want the game to be renamed to FFXV so it has no brand attachment to FFXIII any more. I can’t see casual FF buyers caring to buy a fourth XIII related game. Since they wouldn’t really be ‘in the know’ about it being completely different.

    Best to just start it fresh.

  • Tetsu

    Hope its a launch title! ^o^

  • http://www.squarealliance.com/ Zackasaur

    This is exactly what I want. c’:

  • Adol Christian

    I think we all know its not a rumor at this point…. Sony has a must buy killer game for the PS4. Well done Sony, well done.

  • Willgaea

    It’s always the Versus posts that gets all the people commenting. If the game is anything like dragons dogma ” I’ll love it”.

  • Dustin McFadden

    Yeah, because taking a Final Fantasy that has deep connections with one FF storyline and then renaming it to be the next Final Fantasy and then abandoning EVERY SINGLE fan of the title that has been following its development (however slow said development updates may have been) would be a good idea in a business standpoint. If this happens, I’ll be pretty upset and probably done with gaming for a long time…

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      The only connection it shares with the XIII games are its mythos. Other than that, the game’s worlds and characters are completely different, and do not cross over. Final Fantasy Type-0 is part of the XIII set. It was once called Agito XIII. But it was renamed Type-0. There’s no reason Versus XIII couldn’t be renamed XV.

      • Dustin McFadden

        All of that stuff about Etro and Chaos are exclusive to the Fabula Nova Crystallis project, the core mythos is exclusive to these titles alone. If they were to rename Versus XIII as the brand new entry to the series, it would be lazy of them. Not once has a Final Fantasy title crossed bridges with another (with the exception of Gilgamesh, anyway, but he’s just a summon, anyway). If you think that Versus XIII isn’t tied to the other games in the Fabula Nova Crystalis in a deeper way than just the whole crystal thing, then you haven’t paid attention to the story enough. The biggest thing about Versus XIII is that it centralizes around the mythos even more than XIII-2 did, and you’ve practically got Lightening becoming the guardian for the Godess. You should play the games (or possibly for the first time) and fill yourself in on the story of them all. It’s like they are all separate games, but you find out more and more about the core mythos they are based around.

  • zakou

    I have a choice now to screw Sony as they did to me, I bought PS3 for Versus, FFXIII and MGS4, main reason was mostly Versus XIII. Now if they move it to PS4 I could screw them and not buy the system.

    We had a promise and I bought their system for the game, but I got screwed so it is only right for me to screw them back, however that is now who I am, but I feel this may affect a lot of people who bought PS3 for this game,

    • Elvick

      That doesn’t even make sense. How is it Sony’s fault that SE has taken forever? And you got the other two you wanted… so…

      • zakou

        Versus XIII was announced at E3 for PS3 exclusively. It is both Square’s and Sony’s job to make sure this game turns out to be quality and get’s released and pleases everyone.

        It makes sense for Sony and Square to show such amazing looking game at PS3′s annoucement for obvious reasons “help games such as this sell more consoles” <- So called "Killer apps"

        Square Enix can't just do what they want, they have to contact Sony if they approve first, then they make a deal, then there is also the deal for exclusively on PS3 so it is also Sony's job to make sure Square doesn't run away and ditch the project since "They" had a deal.

        People bought the PS3 <- Sony's console for games like Versus XIII. But no Sony is innocent, i knew sony fanboys will come here and defend sony as if they didn't know anything about this.

        It even says: Development on the game was supposedly stopped and moved to Sony’s new console in 2011. The rumor claims Sony’s studios are assisting Square Enix with the game’s assets, “among other tasks.”

        It only being a rumor I'm pretty sure this will turn out to be true like almost every rumor posted recently.

        Sony knew about this since 2011 but kept quiet, but no nvm im a fanboy and i will defend sony, they are innocent and not to be blame at all.

        @Sal, in my recent posts i have seen some huge fanboyism and devotes againts me. It really shows how low this site is getting, I'm sure Zero reads most of the comments and already knows that this site is filled with Sony fanboys, but it's getting worse.

        Say anything bad about Sony even if it's true and you get bashed/Devoted for it, if this continues(as im sure it will, as it's getting worse. I could deal with it before but not anymore) I will be taking my leave. And this kinda sucks because I have been with you guys ever since this site wans't even getting comments on any article, way before it was called Scrawlfx.com and name changes before that, and I'm giving my honest thoughts it wasn't as bad as this before but now it's overflown with fanboys.

        • Elvick

          Nothing about my previous comment is what a fanboy would say. But be mad all you want. Enjoy.

        • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

          While I agree that, not just Sony, but any first-party publisher who welcomes a third-party on stage to present a game exclusively for their platform, should continue working with and following up on that project, I don’t think the game’s likely troublesome development (at one point at least) is Sony’s fault.

          Game development is a tricky business, and sometimes, shit happens. Sony didn’t commission Square to develop Versus XIII, they’re not publishing the game, so in the end, they have no real control over the game’s development schedule. I’m sure there were plans to release it on PlayStation 3 at one point, but one issue led to another, etc. I don’t know the specifics, obviously. And, if the rumor is true, by the time it came to be, maybe they decided PS4 was the better system to release it on. Maybe now it’s doing something on PS4 it couldn’t do on PS3. Who knows? Point is, these decisions are ultimately up to Square Enix, not Sony.

          Plus, I’m sure you’ve purchased more than two games for your PS3, anyhow.

          As far as the PlayStation “fanboys” (god I hate that word) go, I think the majority of that type of behavior rested upon Dean Winchester, who was banned a couple weeks back. Reading Elvick’s comment, I see no display of ‘fanboyism’. He’s just saying what I said above in smaller terms.

          I’m sorry you feel that way. You know that I try my best to nip the fanboy stuff in the bud. It’s not always so easy to do, and I really try to keep things “open” here at Gematsu, in terms of moderation.

          It’s a tough balance of trying to make sure the guidelines are respected when posting, while trying to place myself in the shoes of a normal user.

          If we decided to just edit and warn every person who posts something that doesn’t perfectly follow the guidelines, it would just get ugly.

          I try my best to point things out, and hope that people can view what they have posted from different perspectives. It’s something I constantly do when reading comments, and it does change things.

          I know lots of people do not read comments like this, its typically more of an impulse quick read scenario, and when you combine that with a down vote button — You see what I’m getting at.

          I don’t particularly like down votes, and this is just one of the reasons. I try my best to step in and try to end discussions that are turning bad, and I try to do that in a very gentle manner. I don’t want anyone to feel like they are virtually walking on hot coals when posting here. People should be able to express themselves, even if what they post is not how the majority feels, and they shouldn’t be “attacked” because of it.

          Sure, that makes moderation tough, I’ve acknowledged that before, I seem to make being a moderator a tougher job than it needs to be. I do this because I care about the community here, everyone who posts here, you included.

          I can’t control down votes, but please contact me if you feel I’m missing something, or if you feel something is wrong.

          (slash 789 at gmail dot com – Anyone can contact me by the way,)

          When you try to build a solid community… it’s always a work in progress, it’s never really finished or frozen in place. It’s like a never ending body of water, filled with multiple personalities, opinions, quirks, etc.

          I’m doing my best to constantly make the community aspects of Gematsu better. I can’t do much about down votes I hate to say… Please contact me if something is up, I try my best to read all the comments, but I’m not perfect, far from it, I’m going to miss things.

          I hope this post helps in some way. =)

    square enix can go fack emselfs,I bought a ps3 solely for vs13,im not buying a new console that I have no interest in just for vs,after 13-3 im boycotting SE.

      Still a rumor, calm your bacon.

  • EspadaKiller

    Oh man if this game is a launch title on the PS4 it will sell like maaaaaddddddddd

  • Frii

    Maybe SE should just do the same as TK, just release the game without any announcement before anyone know it.

  • Freesun4

    Add more budget and let Nomura and Kitase direct and I believe the game will be awesome. About Toriyama…

  • Kita

    rumor, rumor, rumor…. I’m tired of rumors about this game. Square ought to spill the beans already. I quit watching the PS4 conference when Square-Enix delivered their “announcement” and showed off stuff we already seen. I was disappointed….

    I want this game so bad!! But i will say if this news is true, then I’m already sold on a PS4 not long after launch. I won’t wait for 3 or 4 years like I did with the PS3.

    assholes man… that’s bullshit (i’m glad it’s still in dev) but at the same time, hey you’ve been waiting?”oh hey spend another 600 dollars to play our game” fuck that square..you broke ass mother fuckers, if you weren’t still making sequels for your worst game since 10-2 we would have already had 300 hours into this game
