As in 13 not 12...

Once upon a time i saw some news about Final Fantasy 13, And that it would be released on all platforms for 2005!

The only thing ive actually seen of it was a green logo...

Anyone heard other news on the legendary game?

"Tradition" dictates 3 FF games of the main series for each console... 3 for the NES, 3 for the SNES, 3 for the PSX, 3 for the PS2... So I'm guessing what if there's gonna be a FFXIII, it'll come along when the PS3 / Xbox2 / New Gen Consoles come out.

Either that, or tradition gets blown away, one or the other. :)

If they stick to tradion, FFXII won't be released till 2005/6 since they already have 3 FF's for PS2. Im guessing they will break away from tradion, it will be good. It could have also just been a coincidence that it went 3-3-3. It just depends on when a better system came out.

It'll be released for ALL PLATFORMS?!
whee, and I thought I couldn't use my old SNES anymore... o_o

Sorry, of course this was a joke. I doubt this info is true.

KREAYSHAWN
02-01-2004, 11:48 AM
Yeah, it's doubtful...

But a fourth FF during this, er, epoch, wouldn't be THAT unlikely, since XI hardly counts. ;P And I doubt Square are much for tradition.

Alex mack ur mean moving my little post =(


Anyway, If you hear news about Final Fantasy XIII, as in 13, im saying this to one particullar person who just posted something about FF XII here...

Post FF XIII stuff here...

I meant that if they stuck to tradition, FFXII along with FFXIII would be released for the PS3.

Read the post good to understand what i said.

KREAYSHAWN
02-04-2004, 07:34 AM
No, if they stuck to "tradition", FFXII would be for PS2.

Observe :

NES : FFI, FFII, FFII
SNES : IV, V, VI
PSX : VII, VIII, IX
PS2 : X, XI, XII

If you catch my drift.. ;O

To bad for PS2 u missed FFX-2. Hence three for the ps2 so it would actually go like this

NES : FFI, FFII, FFII
SNES : IV, V, VI
PSX : VII, VIII, IX
PS2 : X, X-2, XI
PS3 : XII, XIII , XIV or XIIII not sure how that goes.

He missed FF X-2 off for a reason. Its not a *true* FF game in the sense of the series, since its a direct sequel of FFX.

If you want to get technical like that, then you have to include FF1,2,4,5 and 6 for the PSX since they've all been released on it. Same goes for Tactics. Here in Europe we didn't get FFT on the PSX, but elsewhere did before it was made into a GBA title.

KREAYSHAWN
02-04-2004, 08:48 AM
Yeah, it's like saying there's an irregularity in the SNES ones because MQ is a FF too. ;D There are tons of spin-offs, X-2 is no exception.

Ark Mune

...SHUT UP< JUST SHUT UP *runs away*

I wasn't thinking about that when i wrote. I was just thinking of the original copies/versions of the ones that bare FF+a number, not subtitles like MQ.

If they release an FF for the X-Box i'd lose all respect for Square -Enix.

Yes, the infamous triangle theory. I remember it well. And yes, it did fail, but then again the HOME nation won the cup in the triangle...

... Yes, I am a smidge off topic...

As for the discussion of FFXIII, I'd say seeing as XII isn't due until the fall at the earliest, we're gonna be waiting a while before we hear anything concrete about it.

Alpott
02-08-2004, 11:04 PM
Lets make this post keep going until there s something concrete on FF XIII- The last one (The truth!)

Well, they might release other games that arnt final fantasy, like kingdom hearts (Bad game) and that game they made, (Somthing saga?)

or re-releases which i hope they do, cause FF VII-!X in ps2 graphics would be amazing!!!!!!!

Bahamut ZERO
02-09-2004, 02:04 AM
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Remaking the PS FFs for the PS2 will be a bad plan.

I can appreciate releasing FF1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 on the Playstation because not every region in the world received these games first time through, so it gives us a chance to sample them, but to change the graphics and sound of VII - IX and releasing them would be a bad idea. I'd prefer to have the games stay as they are now, and not see them remade.

Plus there's no point me buying a better looking FF7. I already own it.

In an interview in Famitsu Weekly, Square President Yoichi Wada confirmed that Final Fantasy XII would still be released in Japan during 2003, apparently unaffected by the upcoming Final Fantasy X-2.

Additionally, he confirmed that Final Fantasy XIII was in planning stages, though he did not mention to which console it was headed. No further information was divulged on the thirteenth installment of the series.

Finally, Wada mentioned that Square was planning another online RPG, though again, did not go into further detail.

Currently, none of the games have been confirmed for release outside of Japan, though all three of the Final Fantasy titles are expected to make English appearances.

Uhm, what use was this?

We all know that FFXII didn't get released in 2003, and FFX-2 is hardly "upcoming" anymore.

It's old, outdated, obviously.

Alpott
02-10-2004, 09:20 AM
CANT YOU READ! FOOL!

it mentioned that the FF Director was gonna release a FF XIII, thats solid evidnece theres gonna be one!!

Which is good news, and releveant!!!



FOOL!

Thanks for calling me a fool. Twice. I shall mark that down on my list of people that obviously don't like me.

OMG THEYRE MAKING ANOTHER FF WHAT A SURPRISE

Squares profit margin is solid proof there's going to be another one.

¬_¬

Tokiko
02-10-2004, 10:20 AM
Dup said it.
Actually, if you're uncertain... Square Enix registered the doman names ff13.com , ff14.com and ff15.com like, four years ago....

Alpott
02-11-2004, 05:57 AM
Domain names!? thats no proof there gonna release a game up too FF 15..

Bahamut ZERO
02-11-2004, 06:15 AM
True, but why waste money on them if you're not at least *thinking* about doing so? As a company, it's a silly thing to needlessly expend resources on domain names if you're not planning to use 'em in some way. It stops people from signing them up and selling them to you for an inflated price, so Square have just prepared themselves ready for when they DO release information.

Still, we'll see, eh?

Alpott
02-12-2004, 02:09 AM
I think FF XIII wont go on ALL consoles now, seen as:

XBOX: wont take it cause they will realise that the profit from the game will mostly go towards PS2, plus they havnt released any FF games before..

Gamecube probably will release it because they already released the (Crappy) FF:CC

PS2:Yes!

PC: Maybe..

KREAYSHAWN
02-12-2004, 02:38 AM
Oh, CC is crappy? Perhaps that's because you don't have any friends to play it with.... CC is a good game, even if you have to let Square rape your wallet in order to play it how it's meant to be played. Just beause it doesn't focus on plot like most FFs.... that doesn't make it bad, but different. ;p

And your reasoning is shit.

Alpott
02-12-2004, 06:31 AM
Its bad because i dont like it, its called an oppinion, get over it!

oh and..

I dont even have a gamecube too play FFCC, i have a PS2, becuase i think PS2 is better than lamepube, again its called an oppinion, get over it...

Tokiko
02-12-2004, 07:13 AM
Actually, it's called an opinion, not an oppinion... ;)

Besides... I think the chances of future FF games being released on PC are still low. Squenix hasn't had positive experiences with PC adaptions, but it probably all depends on the circumstances...

Bahamut ZERO
02-12-2004, 08:02 AM
I played the demo of FF7 on my old PC once... The graphics looked a lot crisper, but the game lost its "feel." I can't really put it in a different term than that. The graphics were sharper, but the characters seemed to stand apart from the backgrounds.

Of course now, consoles are more like customised PCs with advanced processors, advanced graphics, etc. I'd be curious to hear about people's opinions on the FFXI on PC and on PS2.

Actually, that's not a bad idea for a topic...

KREAYSHAWN
02-12-2004, 08:37 AM
Fine, there are loads of great games on GC, it's your own loss if you're too dumb to realise that and just insult the console and a game you've never even played. ;D

"lamepube" lolzz, so witty.

Alpott
02-13-2004, 07:02 AM
I did play CC, it was crap...

i have played in a GC (LP) and it was crappy...


dont call me dumb if you havnt even asked if i had played it before..

Ashe
02-14-2004, 08:20 PM
actually Final Fantasy 11 is for online. So it won't happen, Because you could only get it for an online game. so X, X-2 and XII will be together like that.

Alpott
02-15-2004, 01:59 AM
What the hell are you on about!?

Im not on about FF XI!!!!


here we talk about FF XIII

what console will "FF XIII" be on for


NOT FF XI!!!!

Marceline
02-15-2004, 07:35 AM
Jesus. Is it really that time consuming to type an apostrophe? '

Anyhow, on-topic- I don't imagine FFXIII will be on an X-Box, because, to the best of my knowledge, X-Box hasn't had many successful games in Japan. But hey, correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm still waiting for a "screenshot" of FFVIII to surface, like that one people made for 12.

Off-topic- there are lots of great games for all three systems. Instead of going off about how the X-Box, and the Gamecube suck, you could actually try playing them. And you know, it may be fun to be an elitist, but I can play any new game that comes out here- I don't have to miss out on anything.

Apparently the Dreamcast (or some other, equally dead console) has outsold it at times. :D

Okay. Well. Yes, this is what I think, I couldn't agree more <3 In fact, I would go so far as to say, one console/company only "gamers" are little wussy commercial dum dum girly-men gamers. ^o^ ... or people who don't have excessive amounts of money/don't spend most of their money on games. but, uh, point is, there are lots of great games on all three consoles. yeah. :D

What if FF XIII releases on a next gen console, if so, what would be the point in doing that. when a ps2 could easily handle it...

maybe it will be like FF IX, they didnt release it on ps2 because they had more expirience with ps one, maybe they wont release FF XIII on a ps3 cause they had more exp on a ps2.


your views?

Tokiko
02-18-2004, 04:11 AM
You say that FFXIII could be handled by a PS2...? How do you know? No-one knows yet, who knows when the game will be released and what will be technical standard at that time? Speculating is a fun thing, but here it ceases to make sense, because we simply have to assume too much, there are no facts and no information... Just wait and see.
I know fans are always angry when a game they want to play gets released for a console they don't own. And when it's a new console they deny that its existence is justified, and complain that the company doesn't stick to the old console, or something?

Bahamut ZERO
02-18-2004, 10:20 AM
Off topic: I wish I had enough money to buy all three consoles...

On topic: I wonder how much effort it truly takes to convert the game from one format to another? I mean, you get FIFA on all formats, etc... So why not FF? Or have Square signed a sort of exclusive deal with Sony or what?

Alpott
02-20-2004, 12:47 AM
If I asked the same question about FF IX at the times of FF VII, when ps2 was only a myth, would you say the same thing?

Alpott
02-28-2004, 08:57 AM
Thought this was relevant.

It might be the game title of FF XIII, andit might be a clue on what FF XIII will be based on.

The future of FF XIII? interesting...

Tokiko
02-28-2004, 09:09 AM
Or it might be one of the 1452 logo fakes that you can find online... :cool:

KREAYSHAWN
02-28-2004, 09:36 AM
haha, the bottom looks like the 7 logo, the top like tactics or something but in red.

Alpott
03-02-2004, 12:23 AM
I know its a fake logo..

Because the big guy of Final Fantasy showed the logo as a green one...

Anyways,

I showed that one cause i couldnt find the greeny one..

:eye:

Tokiko
03-02-2004, 01:49 AM
What would it change? The green one would be just as fake, wouldn't it? :(

Alpott
03-02-2004, 05:27 AM
Might have been a fake..

Misao, wanna make a bet, if the official logo for FF XIII is green, i win, and if "......" then you win



Sound fair?

darkness of eternity
03-24-2004, 05:18 AM
earlier, alpott, you quoted that the director of square said that, but the director's name isn't what you quoted, his name is hironobu sackaguchi, plus i'm not sure GC is crap, i'd still like to get one (if i had the money), just to play games like FF:CC even if you consider it crap, i'm not too sure about the X-box, it's just a PC, someone i know namaged to install windows on it, but there some games i wouldn't mind trying on that one either, as for ffXIII i couldn't care less what console it came out on, 'twould be nice if it did come out on PS2 then i wouldn't have to expend masses of money on a PS3 or X-box 2 or whatever, but i would still get one just to play it...

Tokiko
03-24-2004, 05:23 AM
That's a damn stupid bet, alpott. As for "might have been a fake", yes, it most likely was one. If there was an official piece of news concerning FFXIII, do you think you'd be the only one to know it? There are dedicated people with very good pages, reporting every little bit of news concerning Final Fantasy. Do you really think they'd miss the release of a fact concerning FFXIII?

darkness of eternity
03-24-2004, 05:28 AM
exactly, it's obviously at the moment just a rumour, not a single video games news website or video games magazine in the world would have missed that one tiny smidge of "information"

DeviL_Vaan™
03-29-2004, 01:59 PM
I heard a rumor that the characters on FFXIII will be Reyu, Biggs, Wedge, Schrive, Viala & Ward and the story begins in an Train (just like FF7) but im not sure about it though.....:(

Alpott
03-30-2004, 10:28 PM
Anyways...


Keep adding bits and bobs of info about FF XIII, even if they are JUST a rumour, ill make sure ill not send any more rumours because some people seem to like mocking it...

DeviL_Vaan™
03-31-2004, 03:08 PM
i just saw a trailer of it in another forum and they say that the graphics of ff13 would be like uh ff9 or 8? :laugh:

04-01-2004, 12:05 AM
Is this really worth discussing?
We all know they're fakes, right? :O

Alpott
04-05-2004, 07:28 AM
Well, we can all just sit here and wait till some solid FF XIII news comes out instead of these "Fakes"...
