Final Fantasy Versus XIII May Not Make It Out In 2011

Yesterday, Tetsuya Nomura revealed on Twitter that while games like The 3rd Birthday and Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded would see full trailers at the Tokyo Game Show in September, Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Agito XIII were a little more complicated.


Nomura stated that the two games were going to be shown off as part of the same brief presentation under the Fabula Nova Crystallis brand, rather than receiving individual trailers. According to Nomura, neither title has a finalized release date, which explains Square’s reluctance in showing them off.


An interview with Yoshinori Kitase, conducted at Gamescom by Gaming Union, sheds a little more light on the situation.


“We have no release date information to update. Unfortunately we can’t say anything about that,” Kitase replied, when Gaming Union asked as to whether Versus would make it out in 2011. “We can’t commit ourselves to 2011 either,” he concluded.


Keep in mind, Kitase could possibly have meant a localized version of the game wouldn’t make it out by 2011, taking localization time into account.
