Rumour: Final Fantasy Versus XIII Now Final Fantasy XV

Announcement at E3?

Final Fantasy Versus XIII was first announced almost 6 years ago at E3 2006, but since then news has been scarce on the title.

Now a video has appeared online which could hold an interesting twist, if it’s real.

MCV seems to believe that Final Fantasy Versus XIII will instead now be Final Fantasy XV, though a source for that has not been revealed.

The video description claims that this trailer in the video was shown at a pre-E3 press event held by Square Enix, with the title apparently appearing on PS3 and Wii U.

Of course, take this as a rumour of the highest order until Square Enix confirms or denies otherwise.

    I just hope whatever they release does not suffer from it turning into a multi platform title.

      Since the Wii U should be at least as powerful as a PS3, I’m thinking that it won’t suffer as much as FFXIII did. Well, as long as the Wii U uses some sort of high density media, which it probably will (at the moment, Nintendo have only said that it’s using a new proprietary format).

        That’s what I’m afraid of. And the fact that it will only delay the game even more because they’d probably be aiming for a simultaneous release like with XIII. The PS3 version was finished and they delayed the release until the 360 version was ready.

    Hmmm, all of the footage is old, It’s on the Japanese import of Advent Children along with the FFXIII demo. What I will say is that it wouldn’t surprise me if they had changed the title to XV but again, XV was said to be running on another engine as they no longer wanted to use Crystal Tools.

    Who knows, still want this game to hurry up and make up for several years of disappointing titles :(

    Did he say it will be released in 2012? If so, YAY! Mixed feelings about it coming to Wii U though, this was supposed to be the big exclusive PS3 FF title.

    But it takes place in the same universe as FF13 thus the reason for it being part of the crystal collection. I hope it’s not true as i’m expecting a fresh FF with FF16 and an entirely new universe with tons of new lore and a decent battle system.

    Can’t see Sony being happy about one of their exclusives being rebranded and losing it’s exclusive status.
