Final Fantasy XIII received mixed reception from both fans and critics and was considered by some a lackluster and unworthy entry into the famed series. This game however was not the only chance Square Enix had to make Final Fantasy XIII a deserving successor to the series.
The next game in the Final Fantasy XIII Project, A.K.A Fabula Nova Crystallis is supposedly Final Fantasy XIII Versus. Unfortunately, the wait for this highly anticipated PS3 exclusive may have just gotten even longer. Regarding the release date, producer Yoshinori Kitase disclosed to Gaming Union at Gamescom last week that:
“We have no release date information to update. Unfortunately we can’t say anything about that. We can’t commit ourselves to 2011 either.”
It’s a tragic story for those who had been hoping for a release at some time in 2011. It isn’t impossible, but judging from the comment, we can say it’s at least unlikely. Let’s hope the game appears at the Tokyo Game Show next month.
