Final Fantasy Versus XIII's new 7-minute trailer - Gematsu
Final Fantasy Versus XIII’s new 7-minute trailer
posted on 01.18.11 at 08:54 AM EST by (@salromano)

Although a high-definition version won’t let out until January 27, a low-quality version of the new 7-minute long Final Fantasy Versus XIII trailer is currently available for viewing.

Of course, it’s a recording of the live stream that Square Enix hosted in Japan earlier this morning. In it, you’ll see a scene between Noctis and Stella, the game’s huge city, plenty of fighting, and most importantly (for some of us, at least) the heads-up-display.

Check it out below. Beware! It may shock you.

    Yeeeesssss! Square-Enix finally delivered with this. I’m still a bit sad there is no release date window yet. But damn a 7 minute trailer! And PS3 exclusive still. Yep, today is an amazing day for Versus XIII.

    • AdamBoy64

      Gosh yes. I’ve been looking forward to this for quite sometime, a lot more excited about it than XIII-2. A release date though.. would be awesome.

  • Chaos Raiden

    The gameplay is simply awesome. Like the first poster, I am disappointed that there is no release date revealed in the trailer.

  • Noctis

    my god
    fuck yessssssssss

  • Falsate

    Mhm, Versus XIII.

    • Revorse

      You that same Falsate who made the ficitional HUDs for VII and this game?!

      • That’s him.

        • Revorse

          Lol that’s cool. I kinda feel like I’ve walked past a celebrity in the streets.

  • Some images taken from the trailer:

  • AiQi

    Now this look amazing! Can’t wait for the release…

  • Theres been some brilliant things come out of this show/conference today! It really has made by day. These trailers are wonderful.

  • Adam Meadows

    I’ve just had one of those ‘kicked in the stomach by Bahamut’ kind of feelings… because I sold my PS3 early last year. Eeek.

    • Falsate

      I’m in the same boat as you. I plan on picking up another one asap especially hearing about these titles and a lot more to come for the PS3 next year!

  • – Great Cinematic, check!
    – 3 party member, check!
    – Kingdom Hearts gameplay, check!
    – you can ride tank, check!
    – you can ride robot, check!
    – female villain, check!

    • Falsate

      “First day purchase before AND after the end of the world – DOUBLE CHECK!”

    • Not sure if I would say that Stella’s a villain quite yet. We don’t know for sure what her representation in the game is — besides being a princess.

      • i mean female villain is that masked woman (she attack Noctis with some kind of red spear?) near the end of trailer.

  • Aldridge517

    I spy Kingdom Hearts battle engine! This pleases me =D


    From a western gamer: HOLY S%#T !!!!!!!! This looks straight up INSANELY COOL!!! Controlling a mecha!!!! It all looks so fluid. I bow to the far superior CRYSTAL TOOLS tech (an engine sent from the heavens). I can’t wait for this in HD, & a (western) release date. FF 13 is an artistic masterpiece in every way, & this will be as well…

  • Rydak

    Looks amazing. I remember when Nomura was giving a description of the battle system and it got me pretty excited for it – this definitely delivers.

  • So who’s watched this at least six times already?

    • Kurai Warrior

      Like 20 times is more like it. : )

      • Falsate

        Around 20. Must.. scrutinize everything.

        • I got up this morning, watched it twice already. It’s true. LOL (altough tbh, the second time was on as I was getting ready for work)

        • Acerba

          Have you found anything worthy to note? :D

    • DjangoRaijin

      Ive downloaded it onto my PS3 and watch it every time I wake up, get back from school, and before I go to sleep. 5 yrs is a long time.

  • Arcanenix

    I thought there was suppose to be like two more games announce, like we got FF13-2 but but weren’t there suppose to be more games announce?

  • Kurai Warrior

    Uh, six times? Try about 20 times. Yeah, I am loving it that much. I cannot wait until we get these trailers in HD. But why XIII-2 gets it’s trailer on the 20th, and then we have to wait a whole other week to get the rest is weird to me.

    • Falsate

      I’m willing to bet it’s a promotional ‘thing’. How unfortunate for Versus XIII *again*…

  • Replaced the trailer. The original video was removed by the Square Enix ninjas. New video is subtitled in English.

  • talesoffan

    Absolutely amazing. I need this game! SE could get a lot of thier reputation back if they keep this PS3 exclusive.

  • Why did I just now decide to watch this is beyond me. This looks incredible!

  • milramyah

    I’m actually getting a real Shakespeare vibe from all the drama going on in the trailer.

    • Acerba

      Must be that Hamlet quotation. :P

  • Hey Sal will you also make a DDL Version of this? both english(if there’s any) and japanese in HD if possible? :)
