Just because it's a ways off doesn't mean we won't follow it; besides, a recent poll has proven that many of our readers are very, very interested in Final Fantasy Versus XIII .
Therefore, we've got some new information for you, courtesy of PSU and a recent Famitsu interview with Square-Enix producer Tetsuya Nomura. One of the juiciest nuggets gleaned from this interview was the fact that "many of the rendering and shading tools used in the development of Versus XIII were used to polish "Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children." See, the team behind the movie wanted to use a variety of especially advanced techniques and tools that weren't currently available, so they turned to the team behind Versus XIII . Now, one can interpret this in a variety of ways, but the optimistic will want to conclude that the final game may actually look almost as good as what we saw in "Advent Children." Nomura further mentioned that Roen, the company responsible for the character costume designs in the game, have finally completed their work on the main character and the rest of the party. Why did it take so long? Well, apparently, there was an "extreme" level of detail required…is anyone else thoroughly psyched by this? Graphically speaking, Square-Enix has always been a pioneer of sorts, so perhaps this isn't too surprising.
We have no idea what Square-Enix has on tap for E3 this year, but at this point, any new footage of Final Fantasy Versus XIII will be much appreciated. Can the game really look as good as we imagine?
