    Nomura Talks FF Versus XIII, Explains Trailer

    Featuring impressive graphics, a dynamic-looking battle system, and a cast that may or may not include Brad Pitt, Versus XIII is attracting a lot of attention. Nomura has even taken time off from Tweeting about The 3rd Birthday to explain some things from the latest Versus XIII trailer.

    Should have just skipped 13-2. I mean, sure they have the graphics and battle engine already finished, from 13, just seems like a stop-gap to increase dev time for Versus.

    Until they've got something remotely useful regarding the date, don't really care about it.

    "Fools set the rules in this world. Just take a look around. It's undeniable."

    Noctis sounds like an idiot...

    edit: i also find this line kind of ironic since...HE'S A PRINCE.

    I hope that there are different slots to equip weapons and change them on the fly without entering the menu all the time. Yep I'm interested in this game so far and also in Agito.
    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    So I watched the video, and holy crap, it looks like crisis core on crack. AMAZING. Bring on the bad dialogue, I don't care anymore. The graphics and gameplay look EPIC!

    Could this game, and 13-2 be the two games that basically tell the fans, "STFU noobs, we still know how to make badass console games". Even if 13-2 ends up sucking, Nomura is on the scene to dispense the ownage with versus 13. There is just NO way this game could suck, even if Noctis spent the entire game saying "ham sandwich" over and over again.

    taking a step back: remember when trailers explained themselves and the game, instead of just being a lot of flash that the designers have to explain later.

    Today Nomura is to SE what Kojima is to Konami. I'm very hyped for this game.

    Eh, Nomura's interviews were basically just answering questions people had about the characters/situations they saw in the trailer, then elaborating on the combat system, since he wasn't at the press event to talk about the game.

    So if they are looking for celebrity voice actors for the English version, the white haired guy at the ends looks like Malcom MacDowell or Anthony Hopkins would be a good fit. For the guy sitting on the throne (Noctis's dad I presume?) I am thinking either Alan Rickman or Christopher Lee. Just some thoughts anyway.

    Overall I thought it looked pretty epic at least we have a decent amount of gameplay to look at now.

    No, Noctis should be Troy Baker, because then he'll get at least some measure of awesomeness.

    They could use the same voice actor of Cloud in Advent Children.

    If you look closely at the battles you'll see how much they resemble Kingdom Hearts, while stylistically the game resembles Crisis Core. It's not a bad combination, though I'm predicting a lot of whining about the repetitiveness of combat and from people who can't relate to characters with personality disorders.

    # Prince Noctis, the game's main character, is strong physically, but also boasts a secret power that's possessed by all members of the royal family. He can be seen unleashing this power in an early Dengeki trailer of the game.

    # Noctis appears to be a bit of a rebel, being quoted as saying, "Fools set the rules in this world. Just take a look around. It's undeniable."

    # Noctis travels with a group of friends who have been seen doing an Ocean's Eleven-style cool guy walk. Noctis is their leader because he is royalty, but they have a casual relationship with him and aren't afraid to tease or criticise him.
    Ugh...

    On top of the semi-fun looking battle system we have now, give me: a world that is open for exploration, number of unique sidequests, and one good character/villain to overshadow Noctis and other overdone bishounen archetypes... please?
