Most rumors concerning Final Fantasy Versus XIII fall flat. Take for instance the recent one that said the long-awaited title had suddenly become Final Fantasy XV .
And because the franchise in question was basically a no-show at E3 this year, the fans remain mostly in the dark. However, E3 isn't necessarily the place for Square Enix (or other Japanese developers) to hit the gaming world with big news; they often save that for the Tokyo Game Show, which comes around in the late summer/early fall.
This year's TGS will run between September 20 and 23 and according to a tip we've received from someone who claims to have heard the news "in passing" on the E3 showroom floor, Square Enix will provide a date for Final Fantasy Versus XIII at that time. This tipster did not overhear an actual date; just the "fact" that the date will be revealed at TGS this year. The person who said it is a Square Enix executive of some note, although he wouldn't give us the name for some reason.
Anyway, as is the case with any and all tips from anonymous sources, take this with a grain of salt. Just bear in mind that it certainly seems plausible…or maybe we're just being hopeful.
