    Final Fantasy Versus XIII Dev Time "Comparatively Faster" Than FFXIII



    [​IMG]

    Sick of looking at these same Final Fantasy Versus XIII screen shots? Yeah. Me too. Well, the good news is that development on Final Fantasy XIII is doing wonders for that other Fabula Nova Crystallis entry, according to the developer.


    Square Enix's Yoshinori Kitase told us at Gamescom this week that development time on Final Fantasy Versus XIII will be "comparatively faster" than that of the core entry, Final Fantasy XIII. That reassuring update to the more action-oriented entry in the Fabula Nova Crystallis project came after Kitase said that the time to model characters and enemies in FFXIII was taking about one-third the time it did at the beginning of the project.
    We knew that some Versus team members had been pulled off that project to work on XIII, and Kitase said that the team's "knowledge and experience" gained from their work will help ensure Versus is out faster.


    If Kitase's "comparatively faster" estimate is accurate, we'll hopefully see Versus XIII by 2011, give or take, since the game and Final Fantasy XIII have been in development for at least five years, maybe more. Still a long way out, but at least Final Fantasy XIV should be out by then, giving fans something to do in the in-between.

    I'm looking forward to Versus XIII more than XIII. It looks awesome. :bowdown:

    I listen to this track all the time from the soundtrack. Shit is epic.

    Same here. It looks darker, more violent. Better character designs, and will be more action-oriented

    Translation:

    S:Lord Noctis... You can see the light...
    S:Right?
    S: Was that what you were looking at from downstairs?
    N:... Pretty much. When did you start seeing it?
    S:When I was a child.
    N:A near death experience I presume?
    S:Yes... you too?
    N:It was pretty horrible...
    S:The Goddess Etro shall open the gate welcoming the the souls of the dead.
    S:When that occurs, a bright light shall shine down through the skies from the land of the dead.
    S:That is the legend.
    S:It's a Tenebrae legend.
    N:We've got the same legend here.
    S: Did the light give you power?
    N:No. I don't need anything like that. I'm fine how I am.
    S:I know, right?
    S:No matter what kind of power it is, if it's at the cost of somebody's life...
    S:It would give me nightmares.
    N:Same. It's a ridiculous bedtime story... You shouldn't talk to other people about the light.
    S:How come?
    N:Being different from others can cause a lot of trouble...
    N: Don't you think?
    S:But if it's just a bedtime story, what do you think the light really is?
    N:It's just something that's there.
    N:Isn't that good enough?
    N:Um...
    S:Stella.
    N:Stella... I should be going.
    S:Thank you for your time, Prince Noctis.
    N:Just Noct is fine.
    S:... I have to go too.
    S:I feel like I've received something from the light tonight.
    S:... I got a chance to speak with you.
    N:Well now you'll have nightmares.
    S:You're mean one aren't you, Prince Noctis.
    N:Noct.
    S:I'll call you that the next time we meet.
    S:You should come to Tenebrae some time. I'll show you around.
    N:That sounds interesting. I'll think about it.
    ?:Who are you?
    N: ... I was about to ask the same thing. (OR That's my line

    PS3 Exclusive btw.



    Directing FF Versus XIII is Tetsuya Nomura, the man who made characters like Cloud and Sephiroth. He wants his action-orientated game to focus on the darker, uglier and truer side of life. He plans to examine "the humanity of the characters", Nomura told us in 2007.


    We know Versus aims to ditch RPG menus in favour of a Kingdom Heart-style action approach, and that Nomura had his team research Western third-person shooters to try and match their tension.

    Somnus Nemorus translation:

    Somnus Nemoris (Dream of the Wood)

    The kingdom sleeps
    and children sacrify theirselves day by day
    until they extinguish,
    and they will never awake.

    This tragedy destroys,
    in front of them,
    every beloved thing.

    And in this never-ending night,
    Look there, the real vision
    on the edge; I will see you
    and the next morning the time will awake.

    :bowdown:

    I'll be curious to see how this turns out as it comes closer to release. Still too early to get excited about right now, but it looks promising.

    It's going to be what FFXIII should have been, had it stayed PS3 exclusive.
