We have some news from Square-Enix regarding their upcoming E3 2012 announcements, but unfortunately it isn’t the news that you want to hear. The company has confirmed that they will not be showing Final Fantasy Versus XIII at the event.
What a big disappointment that is to be honest. You would have thought that we would at least see a new trailer, but it looks like we won’t even get that. The Tokyo Game Show in September may now be the next realistic target for fans looking to see how the game is shaping up after years of delays.
An E3 2012 list revealed by VG247 shows that Final Fantasy Versus XIII has been left out, but games such as Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy are included. Other notable games that will be shown and once of Eidos fame include the new promising Tomb Raider game and also Hitman Absolution too, which looks pretty impressive from what we’ve seen.
At the end of the day though, it is disappointing that Square-Enix still do not have anything new to show regarding Versus XIII at E3. Or are they just teasing us by keeping it a secret perhaps? – That may be one glimmer of hope worth hanging on to.
Square’s Tetsuya Nomura recently asked fans for patience regarding the game, but has your patience well and truly ran out now with the company? If they really are holding back a few secrets for E3 next month though, we would like to see a new Final Fantasy game announced for the PS Vita. Crisis Core was excellent on the PSP and it would be great if the Vita had a unique Final Fantasy game of its own.
What are your thoughts on another E3 no-show for Final Fantasy Versus XIII? Big disappointment or expected for you?
