Versus XIII is coming Q4 2013 - Q1 2014!

#1ExentrykPosted 3/5/2013 1:22:12 AM(edited)
Since this information has been made public, I can share this all with you without needing to use the term "predictions". This information comes from a reliable source named Aryllies who alluded people about "All the Bravest" and the recent "Bravely Default localization" before they were official.

See this post where he informed about BDFF localisation about a week before the official tweet - http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/643004-bravely-default-flying-fairy/65488078/735725600

Now, he has dropped a Versus XIII bomb, as quoted below. http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/643004-bravely-default-flying-fairy/65582181/736715145


It's [Versus] been plagued by internal politics strife but is on track for a late 4th quarter 2013 or early 2014.

From what I've seen, it's a gutted project into which far too much money and time has been poured into. Regarding an official announcement, nothing is planned just yet but we are already ramping up partnerships with distributors/retailers.


This was the source of my confidence in everything I've been saying these past few days. Take it as you will, but I believe him. Try not to spam his inbox, and try not to spread his name too much, so he can continue to provide us more info.

I remember back in 2010 when the January conference was kicking up that we could expect Versus sometime 2011-2012 after FF13-2...

But you know, people tend to really pump that rumor mill when **** starts to get real.

At this point, it doesn't even matter if he's right or not because with the console generation ending and all if it's not out by 2014 then Versus is way too far in the previous generation to appear modern and top of the line.

What I'm saying is, and to relate to a Godfather reference, he's just saying what everyone but you seems to know.

They're going to release LR this fall/winter. Do you really think they will give us Versus? Laughable. I think fall 2014 more real date.

Peonus - Keep your condescension to yourself.

Calling versus a numbered title is debatable at this point.
Anyways some reveals are planned for the TGS (mid september), as for E3 nothing much concerning Versus.

As I said in another topic, they're not even considering localisation as it stands now.
Japan first, we'll see later. Hardly a forward-thinking way of doing things.

Regarding the length of marketing campaigns there's no set rule. It pretty much depends on your definition of campaign. As far as I'm concerned, it takes about 1 year including planning for AAA titles and can take as little as 2 months for smaller projects overseas.



As for it conflicting with Lightning Returns. Not really. The tentative deadlines (Yes, such things do exist, as stupid as this may sound) are far from being too restrictive. Late 4th quarter is the most optimistic one for the game to be ready to ship. (Emphasis on ready.)

My educated guess from the info I have is that late 1st quarter is a far more likely release date. The fighting goes on here and some of the big players aren't too happy with the amount of money this has been costing them. Don't forget that they are pretty much aware that FFXIII versus has been an embarrassment for them worldwide. They don't want to ship a half baked product for this one, now that would truly make them a laughing stock.

This all just seems like the equivalent of tabloid media or political analysts coming in with holier-than-thou predictions. On how we've got the latest most accurate predictions, insider information and the best scoops.

You exude a tone that we should worship and respect these fellows for leaking information on a game that has in the shadow of whatever for years.

It's disgusting really.

Peonus - You have issues. Get help.

If you don't want to discuss about Versus and find this disgusting, why are you still posting? Leave.

Extremely incompetent on SE's part if this turns out to be true. The last trailer they showed had English menus already. There's no excuse for no localizing Versus this late in the game.


Don't forget that they are pretty much aware that FFXIII versus has been an embarrassment for them worldwide. They don't want to ship a half baked product for this one, now that would truly make them a laughing stock.


Really? They haven't acted like they're aware of anything. Nomura claimed he was aware of the demand for news and was "preparing" to address said demand LAST FLIPPING YEAR. And all we got was a sketch and a promise.

I do believe the game will be at TGS though. We'll see what happens.

I'm sorry, I can't believe this guys prediction if he predicts that Versus will not show at E3.

That's pretty much SE getting on stage at TGS and committing sudoku when they show off the game only a few months before release.

If it's going to release Q4 2013 or Q1 2014, it needs to show up at E3, and it needs a pretty damn good showing too if SE wants the game to be relevant before release.
