Tight Lips on Final Fantasy Versus [Update with Character Drawing] At Square Enix's 25th Anniversary event today in Tokyo, company honcho Yoichi Wada took the stage and briefly mentioned Versus . Very briefly. Here's what he said (via Japanese Final Fantasy blogger Marshal.Alloc ):

"I cannot say any more than, 'We are making Versus!' Please wait a little longer."

This raises all sorts of questions: Is the game still a Final Fantasy XIII title? Has it been rebranded or renumbered? Is it still a PS3 exclusive?


The Tokyo Game Show is right around the corner. Perhaps Square Enix will disclose more there—maybe sooner. Or perhaps it'll ask players to wait just a little longer.

Update: As a blogger from website FF-Union (via AndriaSang) points out, the pamphlet for the 25th anniversary event had a picture of Versus character Noctis. It was drawn by game designer Tetsuya Nomura and reads, "Please wait for his turn!" The FF-Union blogger was not sure if this was new or old art.
