Square Enix: Final Fantasy Versus XIII Isn’t Dead

Regular meetings apparently still occurring about the mysterious project.

Square Enix is pushing back on rumors of Final Fantasy Versus XIII’s demise.

Company CEO Yoichi Wada joked about the reports on Twitter last night, remarking that he’d just left a “regular” meeting about the project, and one of the city locations shown was awfully pretty.

"Someone has been spreading a false rumor that Versus has been canceled, it seems," said Wada, according to Siliconera’s translation. "[Laughs.] Just now, we finished our regular Versus meeting. If you could see the city in today’s presentation it would sweep you off your feet."

The lack of any information regarding Tetsuya Nomura’s Final Fantasy Versus XIII in the past few years, combined with Square Enix’s decision to apparently just keep producing more direct sequels to Final Fantasy XIII, made Kotaku’s report about its cancellation a believable one, though apparently a false one. We'll have to see.

The easiest way to convince skeptics Final Fantasy Versus XIII is alive and kicking would be to show the long-promised game, but we’ll have to wait a bit longer for that.

Both a Final Fantasy 25th anniversary event and Tokyo Game Show are scheduled for the next few months.
