Final Fantasy Versus XIII: SE development update, release date still unknown

Following on from our article over the weekend which provided an insight into a possible Square Enix trilogy via a Final Fantasy XIII-3 game, we finally have some good news for those who are patiently waiting on updates regarding the much-delayed Final Fantasy Versus XIII title.

Square-Enix recently held a fan event for upcoming release Final Fantasy XIII-2 over the weekend in Tokyo, and with it, Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase also confirmed that the team has now commited themselves to full development with regards to Final Fantasy Versus XIII, according to NovaCrystallis.

You may remember this Summer that Square-Enix said that production hadn’t even started on the game, so this is definitely pleasing news for those who had almost given up on the game after continuing to see a lack of information on the status of the game, despite being announced five years ago at E3 2006.

It remains a head-scratcher for fans as to why Final Fantasy XIII-2 is releasing so soon after Final Fantasy XIII, as many believe that Square-Enix should at least drop some solid release information on Versus XIII rather than focus their efforts entirely on FFXIII-2. That game is due for release in Japan at the end of this year so hopefully SE will press on with Versus after that game releases.

Sadly, Versus XIII is still not deemed worthy enough to show at this year’s Tokyo Game Show which kicks off this week in Japan. Instead fans are expected to see further footage from Final Fantasy XIII-2, while the company may even drop a surprise announcement for XIII-3 after a domain website was revealed last week.

Would a Final Fantasy Versus XIII release date in 2013 or 2014 be too late for you, or are you perfectly happy to sit back and play the waiting game while Square Enix gets their act together? Give us your thoughts on the whole release situation below.
