"Please be excited for E3 this year," teases Square.

Square Enix has announced the development of a new Final Fantasy title for PlayStation 4 at PlayStation Meeting 2013 in New York City. Final Fantasy brand director Shinji Hashimoto said to “please be excited for E3 this year,” where we’ll hear more about the project.

“Today, I have just one thing to say,” said Hashimoto on stage. “On the occasion of this presentation by Yoshihisa of the Luminous engine [read below] and the announcement of PlayStation 4 from Sony Computer Entertainment, I would also like to announce that we are preparing for development of a Final Fantasy title. Please be excited for E3 this year.”

Additionally, the publisher showed off a real-time demo of the Agni’s Philosophy tech demo running on Sony’s new console.

  • why couldn’t they show it here? it was just weird to say new Final Fantasy, not show anything then just walk off

  • DesmaX

    • Budgiecat

      XIII and it’s two crappy sequels lol

      • Luna Kazemaru

        upset #Kappa

    • Unless VS XIII (renamed FFXV) is PS3 and PS4, like some other titles shown. Then they can just barely squeeze by.

  • They got me pumped up, my heart was beating like mad…. Only to tell us to please wait for e3 lulz…

    SE trolled me pretty good tonight.

    • They trolled more than Yoshinori Ono for god’s sake!!!!

  • TensaiBaka

    I’m betting FFVersus or assumed FFXV

  • tomorei

    “We will show you a new final fantasy”
    ME: now ? now? PLEASE?!
    ME: please pleas eplease”!!!!! FF FF FF!!!!
    “stay tuned for E3″
    ME: *@#”!!!!

    Its going to be FFXIII Versus… since its the luminous studio

  • As Zero said to me on MSN, trolololololol.

    • Budgiecat

      I’m not amused. I’ve now summoned Gigan and King Ghidorah from Planet X to attack their headquarters

  • Bacon

    Sigh, typical square. I don’t even know how they’re still making money, when they barely released anything on ps3.

  • Pekola

    We’ve been so trolled. I was so excited and then…trolololol

  • MrKappa

    Lol! Hashimoto came all the way out there just to say they will announce FF news at E3?
    Good old SE.

  • Ragiacrus

    FF15 for E3? welp least we’re gettin a new title.. I am now excited for E3 2013

  • Prodigy-X

    Its Versus XIII but renamed.

    • YangTerlupakan

      Oh god u read my mind

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    I’m just curious, did he specify that it was a new FF? I didn’t catch that. I thought he just said a new FF would be released in 2013, which I assume is XIII-3.

    Regardless, this was the biggest trolling of 2013.

    until Squeenix’s E3 presentation.

    (I mean even the Noctis perfume tweet a few days ago? Like, seriously?)

    • veruses

      “The Next Final Fantasy Title” is what he said. FFXV, I assume.

      What caught my attention is how he said SCE(Japan is a guess) is helping with it.

      • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

        sony is helping with what?

  • Ace

    Thanks Square Enix for being the only company to not show any new material…

  • Zohar127

    Sony puts on a show that’s “This is our console, here are REAL games, real devs, real announcements!” and SE blows it :/

  • rockman29

    They haven’t even released VS seriously!

    All they did was say ‘wait for later!’


    • MrRobbyM

      They could mean Versus for all that we now. New doesn’t mean brand-spankin’ all new.

    • Because it’s not versus anymore, I bet it was renamed XV since 2011.

  • Sevyne

    Leave it to Square Enix to be the ONLY developers to tell people to wait a little longer at an event like this. They even had the balls to show an old tech demo like people forgot or something.

  • SirAuron14

    aw man, I thought Final Fantasy 15 was gonna be the last for ps3 :(

  • Sevyne

    Oh and correct me if I’m wrong here please, but didn’t they say that this tech demo was running on a pc with PS3 system specs last time they showed it? So in which case did they lie about it? Was it back then, now, or does it really look exactly the same either way?

  • KurisuMakise

    I knew it was TOO soon for Versus XIII, guys tried to hype me but I kept cautious. I was satisfied enough to see Square Enix 1) Present 2) Officially told to look forward to E3. So without further adieu, I officially predict that the new final fantasy, is Versus XIII renamed to Final Fantasy XV. Exclusively available (timed most likely) for PS4. Bonus cookies to Square Enix if it’s launch window.

  • You know they’re just trolololing at Square Enix now.

  • where ff main franchise goes, i will follow. sigh.

  • PrinceHeir

    it could be Versus XIII renamed :P

    either way what a troll square!

  • disqus_hisz8CvdgK

    It is not FFXV or Versus. SE will announce FFLRA = Final Fantasy – Lightning Returns AGAIN!

  • FucSh1a

    Truly hoping it is Versus. We reaaaaaaaaally need new information on that game now >.<. Oh the love of god if they announce FFXIII-4 for some reason….

  • Fans: We are tired of FF13 saga!
    SE: Here, a new FF!
    Fans: No we want Versus 13!
    SE: ……….

  • new_tradition

    I have a lot of things I want to say, but to keep it short n’ sweet…

    I really hope this isn’t Versus and it remains a PS3 game.


    Finally *_*
