Final Fantasy Versus XIII info - "Delicate Situation"
Square Enix: Final Fantasy Versus XIII News is Coming
"It’s a delicate situation within the company."
by Luke Karmali APRIL 17, 2013
New Final Fantasy Versus XIII information is on the way, with the date for the next reveal already set according to the game's director Tetsuya Nomura.
Speaking on the inaugural episode of Square Enix Merchandise Radio (via NovaCrystallis), he revealed that details were coming but that the project was a sensitive subject within Square Enix.
The date for our next reveal is set and we are working toward preparing information for that.
"It’s a delicate situation within the company," Nomura explained. "The date for our next reveal is set and we are working toward preparing information for that.
"Perhaps the details as to why information couldn’t be released might be touched upon with the next information announcement."
While nothing new has been revealed at this stage, it's certainly encouraging to hear that more information is slated to be revealed and suggests that maybe the title isn't destined to become vapourware after all.
The last rumour we heard about the title suggested that it was now in development for next-generation consoles, and had possibly been renamed as Final Fantasy XV.
While the "delicate situation" mentioned by Nomura most likely refers to the company's recent financial results, which clearly demonstrate how much is riding on the future of Final Fantasy, if Versus has now been rebranded as a numbered entry in the franchise, it's fairly safe to say that that would be something likely to cause waves.
With Final Fantasy news promised for E3 this year, hopefully all should be become clear soon. Let us know what you'd like to see in the comments below.
