Square Enix announces Final Fantasy XIII with surprises

By Spencer . May 8, 2006 . 3:09pm

We just got out of the Square-Enix press conference and they announced Final Fantasy XIII as a Playstation 3 exclusive. We got a look at the game and it has a female lead character designed by Tetsuya Nomura. The game also has an all new battle system with menus on the right hand bottom side, but we only got to see the main character in action casting a few spells. The world is high tech, but there are traditional FF magic spells like “blizzard” and “aero”. Here’s the big news Final Fantasy XIII doesn’t come alone. Final Fantasy XIII has a cell phone game called Final Fantasy XIII: Agito set in Akademia. This game is part of the Final Fantasy XIII universe, but it has an all new story line. Also announced is Final Fantasy XIII Versus designed by the team who did Kingdom Hearts 2. This trailer showed no in game footage, but it had a robed man in black who looks similar to an Organization XIII member on a throne. As he steps out side soldiers dressed in knight armor begin shooting at him with the mysterious man summons swords around him. Final Fantasy XIII Versus is also announced for the Playstation 3. We’re going to bring you guys a lot more details about the conference including pictures, media and so forth. So hang tight!

    i just wana no if there is any summons in this game

  • Personally I think they should just have a solo game and not a spawn of games from one.

    definetly NOT ANOTHER MAIN FEMALE character.. they need to make another sequel to VIII. the game i think was totally awesome with the sorceress and her being able to take final fantasy back in time,.. it was a lil confusing which made it really neat but totally awesome. VII was also great with a powerful lord Spehiroth who couldnt seem to be beaten.. i think the midevil times were the best taking it back to the old days..how about it would be neat to make a final fantasy with the real world earth linked to a final fantasy world.. like some weird kid that has these dreams about the final fantasy world taking over the real world earth like in the world 3035 or something.. i hope they read my article cause i got some neat ideas..


  • is there going to be any summons in 13?

    i sure hope so!

    the eidolons in 12 were kinda ass and it looks like there were running out of ideas for body schemes!

  • and can anyone answer me about why they jumped around on the time period from like ff8 to ff9 then back to the somewhat future in 10?
