FF Versus XIII Begins Voice Casting

Creator of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Tetsuya Nomura, has been busy tweeting the progress of upcoming Square Enix titles. One of the most interesting bits offers insight to the progress of Versus, and narrows down at which game shows it may appear.

"Versus has had many difficulties, and past method of production have been completely inapplicable, but these are the difficulties of birth, so we are working hard,” said Nomura. “We have a lot to announce, but because we're going in order, I can't say too much yet."

According to Andriasang, when Nomura speaks of “order” he is referring to a policy Square Enix holds in which the publisher only advertises games in the order of release.

Responding to questions about the game’s field of play, Nomura said that it will not be “completely open world.” Instead, he says it will be “like the 2D FF games in HD.” By this he means that it will look much like the over-the-shoulder, third person screenshots that have been restricted to print-only so far.

Nomura also revealed Square Enix’s upcoming voice recording schedule. The next Parasite Eve game, The 3rd Birthday, is finishing up shortly. After that, Final Fantasy Agito XIII will begin recording. Versus is just beginning the casting progress.

No dates or concrete details have been released, but this news suggests that the release of Final Fantasy Versus XIII is still a way off.
