FF vs 13

16 replies 379 views Edited Jan 5, 2013

Ok, what exactly is FF vs 13.  Is it supposed to be a sequel to 13, an add-on, or its own game.  If it is it's own game, why didn't they just call it 14 or 15.  What is with the "vs" part of it and why.

Final Fantasy Versus XIII is entirely its own game. Why does it relate to Final Fantasy XIII? They're in the same mythology, that's all. Think of having entirely different characters based in the same universe. It's Square's way of overreaching, and delivering a product that action-RPG fans would be excited about.

 

As far as numbers go in the series, Final Fantasy XIV is already available as the series' next Massive Multiplayer Online RPG. Currently, that same game is still due for the PlayStation 3 at some point.

I expect them to release it as 15 with a reveal soon. It's been in development for far too long to keep it part of the Fabula Nova Crystal series nonsense.

 

Here is an epic gameplay trailer. It's gonna have a world map and some of the older school FF mechanics. Type 0 needs to come over too!

There hasn't been an explanation on the "Versus" thing, I'm sure they are going to change it at some point.

It isn't a sequel or anything like that, It's just a story in the SAME XIII universe. Every FF has its own universe with the same characters and locations for example FFX has Tidus and Yuna with a fantasy dream land style locations as FFVII has Cloud and Sephiroth with a steampunk style places and they don't cross over games.

It's not in the same universe at all. New World, New Story, New Characters, New Mechanics. The only thing in common with XIII is that there are crystals. At this point it will make more sense for them to market it as FFXV and I hope that they do because it looks awesome and they need to move forward.

Really? Wow I had no idea since every FF with the same number for example XIII and XIII-2 or X and X-2 are in the same universe. Strange, I had no idea<br />- Wolfiiie77

They're in the same universe.

 

Just, separate worlds in the same universe :smileyvery-happy:

Yeah.....but really they have nothing in common but the crystal mythos. Type 0 was changed from Agito XIII because it didn't tie in enough to the Nova Fabulous Crystarium or w/e the heck its called lol. Versus XIII will probably end up with a name change as well.
