    However, they're making preparations to enter full production.
    Game hasn't entered full production yet.

    Release date, 2015 on the PS4 confirmed.

    Nomura is the biggest troll now, he won't be out-Kojima'd by Kojima.

    Regarding the recording, Nomura said that there are many scenes where the four male characters are engaged in realistic conversation, with their voices overlapping. These scenes are being recorded by having the four voice actors together on the recording session simultaneously.
    Did the Japanese just figure out they could do this?

    I figure it is more that they just generally don't, so he's mentioning that this time they are doing it...

    I'm gonna go with yes. Did you ever notice how often dialogue in japanese games and in anime tends to pause needlessly?

    Exactly my thoughts. I can't remember the last time a word overlapped another in a Japanese game/anime/etc.

    I love when a character pauses mid-word mid-rant so someone can interrupt them.

    They do it with really good anime, but it certainly isn't common. Red Garden and Kurenai being the examples that spring to mind.

    What do they mean by "enter full production?" Like, they're going to pay attention to the game and legitimately work on it?

    SE's development cycle has been re-clarified:

    http://www.andriasang.com/j/blog/201...are_enix_game/

    Conception
    Six months spent looking into the key features of the product and creating a prototype.
    Vertical Slice
    Six months spent making a 15 minute gameplay build at 70% quality.
    Pre-Production
    Four months spent focusing the concept by playing the vertical slice build and getting feedback. Also, creation of the "pipeline" and other areas of the development environment.
    Effectively, they're done with a 15-minute gameplay demo 'vertical slice' and are about to start building the development pipeline processes required to complete the game.

    The published slide on the article http://www.andriasang.com/j/blog/201...are_enix_game/

    This was August 2010, but the game in question was not identified, so there's no good measure of how long a game has left before release once it's entered this phase. There's not a lot of 'western' companies SE has jointly developed games with, but NDAs would lock such information behind a wall until games get titles, release schedules, etc. Guess away!

    No Final Fantasy Versus XIII at Tokyo Game Show
    Timing set for next showing, says Tetsuya Nomura in Dengeki PlayStation interview.
    Tetsuya Nomura is one of the main headliners in this week's issue of Dengeki PlayStation. To commemorate its 500th issue, the magazine got Nomura to draw a cover with six characters: Noctus (FF Versus XIII), Lightning (FFXIII-2), Serah (FFXIII-2), Noel (FFXIII-2), Machina (FF Type 0) and Rem (FF Type 0).

    Nomura is also featured in a lengthy interview in the magazine. According to the usual early leak sources, Nomura tells the magazine that Final Fantasy Versus XIII will not be shown at this year's Tokyo Game Show, which will be held in mid September. However, the timing for the game's next showing has been set, he also confirms.

    Nomura also mentions a few of Square Enix's other major titles in the interview. He refers to 3DS rhythm title Theatrhythm Final Fantasy as the first entry in Square Enix's 25th anniversary festivities for the FF series. Regarding Final Fantasy Type-0, he says that the game has some as yet unannounced characters who have major voice actors. He also says something about Kingdom Hearts 3D, but his comment is full of blanks, making it difficult to figure out what he's saying.

    Dengeki also has commentary from Yoshinori Kitase, Yusuke Naora, Motomu Toriyama, Hiromichi Tanaka, Hajime Tabata, and other Square Enix VIPs, so we'll hopefully get additional updates throughout the day.

    For those eagerly awaiting an update on Versus XIII, it's possible that we'll still get something at TGS. The game has appeared in some capacity at the past two TGS events despite initial hints from Nomura that this wouldn't be the case.

    Deep inside I've been trying to be optimistic with both Versus 13 and KH3's probable release dates. What's the left over life for this current generation's consoles? Another 4 years or so? Otherwise, I don't see why SE would even consider KH3's production for this generation.

    Which will happen first... FFXIV being in a launch ready position or this game getting a release date?

    The latter, easily. They actually know they can make big money off the latter.

    Really sorry to bump this up with what is likely to be total junk however (possible spoilers being as it's a supposed plot description from two alternate sources, absolutely don't expect it to be true but you never know so if you don't want to take the risk...!):

    Spoiler: show
    http://flyingwankey.wordpress.com/20...y-xiii-versus/

    So it seems like an interesting story whether or not it's true, although the ending bit seems fairly ridiculous but not wholly unlikely considering XIII-2. If the stuff regarding Wada ever turned out to be true i'd be pretty disappointed, if he took the lore from versus and shoehorned it into a new game to create a forced series... I do actually think if this was the story I'd enjoy it quite a bit.


    So yeah, i don't know whether anyone's interested in these kinds of things, but considering how barren news is for Versus I didn't think it'd be a big deal to post it.

    LOL, holy... If that is true, that's just pure awesome:

    Spoiler: show

    Final Fantasy XIII Versus was originally named “Untitled” (a new IP); Tetsuya Nomura wanted to use a non-advertising HERP, BACTERIA, FUCK YOU INTERNET campaign for the game. The game would be released with no title and the Blu-Ray case would be pitch black with no screenshots, text, or description on it. Nomura planned to sell the game on mystery and word of mouth alone. Part of the reason he wanted to do this is because the game’s story revolves around its villain, “the Nothing”, an entity that one cannot even see. Wada, however, thought that Nomura’s idea was too extreme, and so he urged Nomura to simply make it a Final Fantasy title. Nomura refused, Staff 2 got pissed, FF13 was drawn up in less than a week after that incident, and then Wada forced Nomura to make Untitled an offshoot of FF13 (a demand that couldn’t be refused, because a chunk of Untitled’s mythos was stolen and applied to FF13).

    SE should make an RPG about how they make RPGs. Would have a cool story.
