Final Fantasy Versus XIII: Combat System Changed, Release Date Between Q4 2013 to Q1 2014

Things just seem to get murkier for Square Enix's forgotten epic.

Square Enix’s Final Fantasy Versus XIII is certainly the company’s more troubled game. As part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis project that included Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Type-0, Versus was presented as a more action-oriented title like director Tetsuya Nomura’s Kingdom Hearts series.

That seems to have changed. NeoGAF reports about a supposed Square Enix insider who stated that said action element was removed from the game’s combat system.

Now, the game’s more like a regular Final Fantasy with the Active Time Battle system and some elements from Final Fantasy XII.

This same supposed source did the rounds according to GameFAQs with a report that said the game’s “been plagued by internal politics strife but is on track for a late fourth 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.”
