This doesn't even make sense. What does FFXIII have to Megaten? Summons will always be "summons", despite whatever new "gimmick", or "plot presentation" they will have. It's always be this way.
The being able to sleep thing probably refers to some obscure holiday
I think it justy means that they will putting out all-nighters and getting very little sleep untill it's released.
That farushi and rushi stuff sounds like they're just making crap up.
Will yeah that's the point
. It's how they have made every FF game from the first through now, It's called being "creative".
Determination is pretty much the theme of every FF game when you get down to it, except for the first three, where the theme was pretty much just "kill the fuck out of shit" which is why I like them more).
No. The developers have always had different themes in mind when creating the games.
That, or you're literally summoning binary for some reason.
We don't even know what "digtial" means in the context of FFXIII.
You have to wonder though, digital summons? What sort of DRM laws apply to THAT? Maybe that'll be a major plot. Like, the main character is some sort of cracker warez pirate that's cracking warez by programming variables in her androgynous Linux distro.
It's funny that you says this, then mention a series when download monsters though a computer.=/
btw, i seriously don't like this art direction much. Hyperrealistic is boring.
Than why are you here? You comments so far looke like you are trying reason bash SE, for God knows whatever reason. If you don't like that much why bother?
They remind me of the Turks.
Nomura has stated that it was going to be different from a typicial FF game.
Here's interesting fact, during the early days of FFVII's development Sakaguchi original wanted it to take place in a modern world within a metropolitan city that looked like New York, and would be about two brothers. Of cousre as the development of a game progess the concept generally changes. Let's not forget FF:TSW which was written had very few elements (especially the setting) what people would assocaite with the series, despite being his vision of FF.
I'm pretty sure you know that the series have never has never stuck to one setting, otherwise every game would been like FFI instead stuff like FFVI, FFVII, or FFX.
I've personally always wanted to see what a more modern FF would be like, especially since modern type RPG's are very rare. The Megaten series are the only ones I can think of up the top of my head.
I'm interested in Mafia-esque story taking place, which makes the game seem much more original than many of the RPG's out there:
Guns are forbidden in the world of Versus (the guy with the shotgun is said to be a fugitive of some sort).
The location featuring the new female character is inspired by Tokyo's Shinjuku district, with the twin skyscrapers undoubtedly being based on the famed Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. The other location is based on the Plaza San Marco of Venice, Italy.
There's further confirmation that the game will have a world map, and it'll probably be to a more realistic scale, sorta like FFVIII's.
The guys in the business suits having the meeting in the cathedral-like building are presumably in charge of the kingdom, and I believe were described in the trailer as the "organization which will lead the world to ruin", or something like that. They, along with the rest of the royal family, are supposed to be more like a crime family, and the story itself will have some emphasis on mob drama.
It's implied that the mafioso in the pinstripe suit is probably related to the hero. I'm betting there will probably have some dispute over the throne, if it's as Shakespearean as we're being lead to believe.
Anyway, there's not really much new information, unfortunately. Just generalizations made about the screenshots; the girl looks unhappy when she faces off with the hero, the guy in the white robe appears to be the antagonist, yadda yadda.
That said, they're basically saying that 2008 will be the year when they start to release information, and they plan on having a demo for FFXIII out some time this year.
This was translated by one of the posters on Neogaf, Nomura also mentioned a while back that controllable airships would be in the game along with possibility of Airship Battles.:D
Heres premise official for SE:
The other game being developed exclusively for the PS3 under the Fabula Nova Crystallis project, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, is being headed up by Tetsuya Nomura (Kingdom Hearts fame). The game follows a prince: the last heir to a dynasty that ruled over one of the few remaining cities to still use crystals. Because of its rarity and power, the crystal has become the source for many's lust and passion. One such organization of marauders sought to claim the crystals for themselves. They invaded the Prince's kingdom. Now the Prince is tasked with defending the city.
