|Final Fantasy World -- Final Fantasy Versus XIII 13 Story|
FFXIII Versus, (pronounced "Vehrsas" in Latin meaning "A change of direction" and "Versus" in the English sense as well. Directed by the one and only Tetsuya Nomura with the production crew from Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy XIII: Versus is the PS3 sequel to FFXIII and promises to be an Action RPG.
The game features a dark, spikey haired young man with great power and is said to be a dark tragedy, unlike any other Final Fantasy.
Versus was inspired from a line in Shakespeare's Play "Hamlet, Act II, Scene II": "There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." and revolves around a royal palace, where our main chacarter is a member of, in the last City that searches to control the "Crystals". The setting is unusually real-world like and the City's culture is very similar to our own, however outside the City, lies an almost medieval land where uncivilised barbarians are in a constant fight with the last City to gain control of the powerful "Crystals".
Versus' theme is all about "friendship", "bonding" and "sleep", and Nomura warns that this game will be the most dark and tragic of all Final Fantasy's and jokes that you will still be crying over it a week after completing the game! However it is not intended to be "a tragedy for tragedy's sake" and certainly does not wish for people to finish it and regret ever playing it, it's simply the only way the story could be told, he says.
As the only footage released for Versus is all CGI, it appears that the game is far from complete, so don't expect a release for 2007, as the eagerly awaited FFXIII Versus Action RPG, unlike any other, seems to be set for an uncomfirmed 2008 release.
