Images of Final Fantasy XIII

Images of Final Fantasy XIII

After the Versus update earlier, we learn more about the principal Final Fantasy XIII title with these new images. It is a Playstation 3 exclusivity which will be available in 2008 for our Japanese friends. Motomu Toriyama, the Final Fantasy X-2 creator, is helming this title so the combat system potential is really good. As for the images, they are CG.

Hmm...2008 in Japan easily means 2009 everywhere else.

We're going to be waiting awhile for this one.

Hm, wish we could get some gameplay shots...

Shiva picture is stunning!

this is final fantasy, which final fantasy game has been an utter disappointment? i find all ff games great jrpgs!

ff13 will follow the same tradition, great characters, great story, great cg movies and quirky japanese humour!

bring it on.


well, i hope the game gives you the option for english subtitles, with the PS3 being region free for games, i would love to import this game with the original japanese voice over and just english subtitles

Still no decent gameplay shots -__-
CG might be nice to look at, but it's unnecessary for both PS3 and Xbox 360.

I don't get it. What's the point of giving next to no information for a year and then release some CG shots?

at E3 they said they are 13% done on FFXIII and 1.3% for Versus

Whats the point in this screenshots? These pre-rendered stuff are off no use. Everyone can make a fancy movie. Give us gameplay!

Im just happy they are showing anything, in game is ideal, but these are nice too. Enough with the closed door viewings Square Enix.

Personally i find Final fantasy to be a bunch of over pretentious drivel mixed with stale japanse intrigues i've allready seen a hundred times over in different animes and games but for some reason unknown to me is till play every one of them. The ffx2 guy being involved in this does not sound particularly good though...i mean, FFx2 was utterly horrible in everything but the combat. Oh well, when it's time for release i'll probably sit playing this as usual...i just hope it's better than FFX/2.

FFX/2 made me smile, at least it was a diffrent take :D
Commented on 2007-11-01 15:04:33
Ugh finding out the X-2 creator is attached to this has severely dampened my expectations. Maybe that's what I need though seeing as I have had high expectations of many a final fantasy game that has dissapointed.

Not necessarily, if SE states they will release Last Remnant simultaneously what's to say they can't do it for FFXIII?

Beautiful art. But the fact that they're still showing CG makes you wonder about the actual game.
Commented on 2007-11-01 17:11:40
this game is 2009 no doubt, also its no good to use an image of FF12 for FF13

They showed many in-game screens before.
Commented on 2007-11-01 17:29:07
Those were definitely target renders.
Commented on 2007-11-01 17:37:06 In reply to Kudgel
Um That Moogel is from FF12...

And yea these are all CGI pics, I'm starting to wonder if SE has anything in game to show at all.

I think that was a target video.

Just because it won't happen, FF13 will be full of huge amounts of text, I doubt Last Remnants will be, at least not on the same scale.

It's about time that JP dev's start translating during development though, it would make much sense, Kojima I'm looking at you.

You're a fool if you believe that. Honestly, there's no way that after 1,5 to 2 years of work, that the game would be done for only 13%. Hell, when they showed the 1st CG the game was most likely already at least 30% done. By now it should be 70% to 80% done.

Dunno about Versus though. I wouldn't be surprised for it to be released before 13.

I wouldn't bet on this, there have been rumors that SE have halted production until the PS3 user base is bigger.

And he's right at E3 SE said this themselves, but I guess you know better than the developer.
Commented on 2007-11-01 17:51:28
I highly doubt they'd halt production. This release is inevitable. But I bet they took a serious look at making it multiplatform.
Commented on 2007-11-01 18:13:23
Is that the highest res Lightning shot you have? I know there's an even higher res press shot out there. I want it!

I doubt it. FF games have always been developed to take advantage of a single console's strengths. The only exception was FF11, which was hardly a regular FF game.
Commented on 2007-11-01 18:16:27
That is true. Then again I've yet to see evidence of anything PS3 can do that 360 cannot do.
Commented on 2007-11-01 18:41:44
heh this won't come out before late 2009. If you are a JRPG fan buy Lost Odyssey and have fun.
Commented on 2007-11-01 18:43:03
also its kinda sad that Square hasn't released a single real time shot since showing the game at e3 2006. I am pretty sure both XIII and versus XIII were put on hold due to dismal ps3 sales

I get a feeling this will end up on the 360. Remember my words.
Commented on 2007-11-01 20:04:46 In reply to INDIGO
Nah, I don't see the 360 release happening since the White Enigne was designed to make development on the PS3 easier for Square. Just buy the PS3 if you want it so badly! It's $400 now, will be $300 by the time FF13 comes around.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (18 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (20 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (20 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (22 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (24 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (24 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (25 minutes ago)
