If this game is nothing but epic operatic music in the background, during all cutscenes and gameplay, and constant narration from indiscernible japanese voices...it is the greatest game ever made. 
But sadly It'll probably be a lot like FF12 with FF13 polish 
 
Yet I'm still looking forward to it!

Development of this game started like 8 years ago.
BUT,it's been only 2 years that Versus 13 has been on actual hardware.
 The footage is from an older build also.

Right now the CG,the esthetics,the characters look AMAZING.
Just wait till next year and it probably be one of the top prettiest games this generation.

An open world adventure game with FF cinematics? Yes please!

Those pretty boys all look the same. These guys need to learn how to make characters.

Ohhh shit pilotable mechs!

Gameplay looks pretty terrible. There's no contact feedback, just waving the weapon through with numbers popping up. No collision between objects, just pushing each other back when they encroach on their invisible forcefields. Gliding around like ghosts, never really touching the ground so much as floating over it.  
 
Really well animated movements though.
 
I'm glad they're finally going to try to evolve the franchise, but they're just so incredibly far behind. They need to pull in some experienced hires from studios that know how to do action combat. It's not even an east vs. west thing here. There are plenty of japanese developed games that do a far better job with action combat.

The fact that this game is set inside a legit japan looking city makes me so much mroe excited.

It's basically the haircut that's popular with all young Japanese "cool" guys and hosts.   http://www.host2.jp/ranking/index.html

No thanks.
Its suffering from being in development for far too long.
Looks ugly and awkward in places. Animation stilted. Wierd clipping. Characters sliding across the floor when enemies contact them. Its just wierd.

I've seen the same CG scenes in trailers for this game since announcement. I'm sick of seeing Noctis and that girl having a chat in the glass penthouse. Still with no voiceover in that section. Its just wierd.
 
Combat looks like its trying to do too much. 3rd person sword fighting (operated by pressing x on the attack button) and messy looking 3rd person shooting. Probably with a shocking delay to it cos what you're really doing is pressing x on the attack button.
 
I pray it'll be good cos i love everything before FF12, but come on SQ Enix. You must do better. Oh, and hire a professional company to make your trailers cos that was a visual mess with Awful opera.

Kingdom Hearts anyone?

Posted by EpicReflex

It's not a surprise to me that this game looks really, really bad.

Posted by zameer

Cautiously optimistic for this game since Nomura's helming it.

Posted by VincentVendetta

I think I know why this is called Versus XIII; because they knew Final Fantasy XIII sucked and developped something against it!

That's racist.
Posted by AuthenticM

One of the well-dressed suits (I think he's Noctis' father) looks quite a lot like Alan Rickman. Wouldn't it be great if they got him to voice the character? He's such a good actor.

This was my exact thought as soon as I saw them in battle. The menu to the bottom left is near mirror image. Maybe Sephiroth is hidden in there too.
 
All that aside though I am cautiously optimistic. I want it to be good, but SE has a lot to do to get back in every ones good graces after the response to 13 and 14.
Edited by Redharlow

I'm not waiting through 4 pages of comments but aren't all fantasies based on reality in one way or another? Seems kind of unnecessary to state a fact that obvious. Whatever still looks cool though. Looks like Crisis Core and Kingdom Hearts on a more realistic and epic scale.
 
Maybe some day developers can get over using ridiculously over sized weapons with characters that under no circumstance could actually carry them. Or people flying.

Posted by Delta_Ass

That haircut's pretty awful.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

Crisis Core was easily the best Final Fantasy game in a very long time, and a more complex/full/more thought out version of it(essentially) on the PS3 is like a dream come true. Hope it turns out. It always interested me more than 13 or any FF in years as well.

yeah i agree.  they look nothing like actual japanese people...
Posted by Chubbaluphigous

I am still a total sucker for the FF asthetic.  I just really love the look and atmosphere of FF games.  It is just a shape that they don't all play great.

Posted by Waerjak

I feel like I've seen all of this before somewhere.

Posted by picklecannon

This looks really fucking good.

" A final fantasy with the Kingdom Hearts battle system should be awesome.  The world looks kinda boring, but they've only shown a bit.  Though I don't get why it's called FF Versus 13.. "
yeah it looks a bit boring but it reminds me of japan and a lot of childhood memories flow into my brain when i see a place that looks like tokyo.  i think it has to do with the crystals or something in FF 13?  dunno havent played 13 cause of some things i heard about it.
Posted by ArbitraryWater

It's weird. I think this game looks way better than regular Final Fantasy XIII.

Posted by McDunkin

The gameplay looks awesome.  Main character looking like hes from a host club; not so much.

Posted by cowdrunk

Lmost lost me at "...based on reality" but the gameplay looks interesting  
also I bet the dude in white around 6:01-6:08 is this games Cid
Posted by Chocobo_Blitzer

that lady was pole dancin' all over her sword

Posted by KoolAid

wait... this is a game?   With gameplay?
 
Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?
 
Looks awesome!  I loved how Kingdom Hearts played and this looks like that with some resident evil 4 and lost planet thrown in.  Looks like it would work great.  Could I be back to playing Final Fantasy?

Posted by Solarus

This actually looks surprisingly good. Looking forward to it!

that was the only interesting thing I saw on this video , so I will pass , no girls but only "boys" is not my thing , also the world looked bland and monotonous
Posted by Warchief

emo kingdom hearts confirmed. 

Posted by Red

That looks pretty awesome. I've always been turned off the Kingdom Hearts games because of their overall corniness, but this looks surprisingly good. Remembering how freaking awesome The World Ends With You was, I'll allow myself a little hype, but this is your last chance, Square. 
 
 
 
Your final chance.

FF Versus is not "set in the same world", it's (merely) based on the same mythos -- or part of the same mythos. Of course it still has to be determined what that mythos actually is. FF Agito XIII - now Type-0 - is involved like this, too.
Posted by Lydian_Sel

There was not one thing in that video that convinced me to give a fuck about Final Fantasy again. I've just been burnt too many times.

Posted by moush
@Lydian_Sel: Burnt by what?  Everyone born in the last 10 years should know what to expect.
Posted by Sticky_Pennies

So, why the flying fuck wasn't this FFXIII instead of that nonsense we got last year?

Posted by Lydian_Sel
@moush:  I think that's wishful thinking.
Posted by yakov456

Oh damn, I don't even like FF games and I think this looks fantastic!

Posted by JuggaloAcidman

Color me confused.... You can tell it's the Kingdom Hearts people that made it, thats for sure. I'm just wondering... if it's good... Can we go ahead and forget FF XIII even happened?
Posted by Liquidus

God, this game could be awesome............but I fucking hate the main character.

Posted by Spiritof

I'm not sure, but I think I saw Bayonetta in there somewhere.

Posted by DarkbeatDK

Crisis Core on a home console? Hell fucking yeah. 
I really, really dig the first bit of the video. I wouldn't mind seeing a whole game where they used trick to mix live-action footage with 3D graphics like that for all their cutscenes.

Posted by TheMustacheHero

This looks like it will play terrible, weird attempt at hack and slash with the characters floating everywhere.

Posted by LiquidSwords

FF Geeks, why u mad?

Posted by afrofools

It looks like they interned at Platinum games. Good stuff. I love the art aesthetics, and the music, and I thoroughly enjoyed Kingdom Hearts and this like an adult version, as everybody says, so that is G O O D.

Posted by SpicyRichter

Near future setting and real time combat looks cool

Posted by reich_joyce

Looks like what FFXIII should have been. One more chance Square...ONE MORE.

Posted by McGhee

That looks fucking fantastic. I can't wait.

Posted by Underachiever007

You have my interest, Square.
