Update: Wada’s released a clarification statement.
Original: When Final Fantasy XIII was announced at E3 2006, it was labeled as a PlayStation 3-only title. Two years later, at E3 2008, Microsoft and Square Enix announced on stage that the game would arrive on Xbox 360, as well.
Final Fantasy Versus XIII was also announced as a PlayStation 3-only title and till this day still remains one. Every trailer we’ve seen for the game labels it as a “PS3-only worldwide” title. Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada seemed to avoid those indications during a Q&A session in Tokyo today.
When Impress Watch asked whether it’d be best if Versus XIII was released as a multiplatform title, Wada responded “We’ll be looking into it internally until right before the formal announcement.”
By formal announcement, Wada is referring to a proper unveiling of the game. We’ve already seen a few trailers, but other than that, the company has shown no gameplay besides some handy-cam-filmed footage at last year’s Tokyo Game Show.
Everyone’s expecting the game to show up at this year’s E3, but director Tetsuya Nomura has already made it clear that there’s a chance the game will miss the show due to changes in development.
