Square Enix Talks FFXIII
11.10.06 - 3:52 PM

In an interview with Dengeki PlayStation, director Motomu Toriyama and character designer Tetsuya Nomura talked about Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII for PlayStation 3. According to the duo, a team headed by producer Yoshinori Kitase was still busy working on the White Engine, a proprietary engine that will power Square Enix's PlayStation 3 titles. As for Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Nomura aims to create previously unseen "tricky" battle scenes, reminiscent of Square Enix's popular CG movie Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. While the trailers shown so far have focused on the game's silver-haired protagonist, Nomura confirmed the existence of a heroine. The aforementioned male protagonist is the heir to the throne, but his country, home to the world's only crystal, has come under attack. Nomura also mentioned that the protagonist's eyes will turn red when he wields his sword. Talking about Final Fantasy XIII, Toriyama hinted at a new trailer revealing new characters. This trailer would probably be released next month.

Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII have yet to receive official release dates.
